Phrasal verbs are verbs with more than one word. Normally followed by a preposition or/and an adverb. Phrasal verbs can also be called two-part verbs or three-part verbs. There are two different types of phrasal verbs separable and non-separable (transitive (= takes one or more objects) and intransitive (= does not take objects)).

Non-separable phrasal verbs remain together 

Example: The plane took off at noon. Separating took and off in this phrase would make it incorrect, Example: The plane took at noon off (incorrect).

Separable phrasal verbs can be separated

Example: Sara took off her jacket or Sara took her jacket off.
