Inseparable verb phrases (phrasal verbs)

Paul gives some examples of inseparable verb phrases. If it’s inseparable, that means that it is not possible to divide the verb and the preposition and put the subject in the middle.

In the video, we have an example:

the teacher went over the assignment (le prof a traité / a vu le devoir)

It is not possible to say *the teacher went the assignment over”


  1. Excellente vidéo et excellent professeur qui explique très bien.
    J’aime l’accent américain.
    A développer + vidéos avec les mots manquants.
    Très bon.

  2. Unfortunatly, the video doesn’t work very well, and stops often.Difficult to follow what the teacher says .
    It’s a shame!

    • Helene,
      This happens sometimes, either because of youtube or your internet provider (speed is variable depending on the number of users online). The only thing to do in this situation is to open another browser or tab, and continue surfing while the video downloads. When the video has downloaded completely, it will play without interruption.
