There are always questions about the phrasal verbs on the TOEIC exam:

Pick up means go somewhere to get or retrieve someone or something

  • Jimmy is going to pick up Mr. Hendrix at the train station.
  • picked up my sister at the mall this afternoon.
  • They said I can pick my suit up at the cleaners tomorrow.

Pick out means to choose or select something

  • I picked out this tie to wear today.
  • We picked out some new furniture for the reception area.
  • I picked out a couple of nice posters for the office.

👉 Keep in mind the best way to remember this or any vocabulary in English is to take the word or phrase write it in a sentence that's true for you or true in your world and then memorize your sentences.

👉 You can even take your sentences and write them in the comments below. I would love to see your examples.
