toeic phrasal verbs Aug 25, 2023

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

When you set something up you make arrangements to do that thing.

  • Ms. Lane set up a meeting with the auditors.
  • The travel department can set up the itinerary for your trip.

When you set out to do something you make a plan to do something new. We usually use set out plus the to verb.

  • The marketing director set out to open several new social media advertising accounts.
  • I set out to start my own business when my last company went bankrupt.

👉 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.
