Here’s a vocabulary lesson for learners who are intermediate and above. The material introduces some multi-word verbs in context, looks at meaning and form before allowing some guided practice of the language.
This lesson also attempts to show that multi-word verbs are polysemic and often idiomatic. Even though these multi-word verbs contain weather words, they have nothing to do with the weather. This serve to highlight the fact that meaning comes from context and not from the lexical chunk.

Like the resource, lots of detail. I don’t think I use cool down like that, calm down maybe. Or maybe I do… Not sure!
