I was on YouTube recently and came across this video:
“10 GET Phrasal Verbs: get down, get off, get through, get up, get away…”
And it had four million views!
So what’s the problem with that, you ask?
It’s called, “Interference.”
This means, when you learn two similar words at the same time, you may get them confused when you speak.
You’re in a conversation…
You want to say “get down”…
But instead you say “get off”…
They sound similary.
But the meanings a VERY different.
And possibly very embarrassing…
According to research, every time you learn similar words together, you have a 25% chance of creating PERMANENT confusion.
But you wouldn’t know that from attending school or watching YouTube teachers.
The only way to learn that is to read piles and piles of boring language research.
Or simply join my online school…
