Phrasal Verbs for Business English II

In my last post on this subject, I covered the useful workplace phrasal verbs “go on,” “carry out,” “set up,” and “point out.” These phrasal verbs were explained in both a video lesson and a comic strip. Today, we have a new video lesson and comic strip. The business English phrasal verbs we’ll look at today are “set out,” “walk out,” “take on,” and “take up.” Enjoy!
