In this final episode, Rory and Maria talk about phrasal verbs in the IELTS writing section and how to use them to get a high score…a band 9 score!
Each episode is divided into two main sections: "quiz", and "mechanics".

In this main section of every episode phrasal verbs are divided into separate categories of meaning based on what their preposition does to the verb. e.g. What does preposition "UP" add to the verb? How do you remember phrasal verbs with this preposition?
In the beginning of every lesson there's a phrasal verbs quiz, the aim of which is to show how much more natural and fluent speech with phrasal verbs sounds.

Listen actively

Give yourself an hour a day to listen to the Podcourse. Listen carefully for the phrasal verbs focused on in each episode in the examples given and the explanations presented.

Write things out

Active listening involves writing things out. Take time to pause and write down phrasal verbs you like. Say them aloud to practice your pronunciation.

You might want to use "Quizlet" or services alike to help you learn phrasal verbs.
Also. it's better to memorize phrasal verbs together with a few examples.

Refresh your knowledge by listening to the episodes again and recalling all the phrasal verbs you focused on in the course.
