Guess the meaning from context

Read the dialogue again. Try to guess the meaning of the phrasal verbs by looking at the context.

Guessing the meaning from the context, also called inferring meaning is a crucial skill to language learning. This is how you learned all your new vocabulary in your mother tongue. You didn't use a dictionary, only on very rare occasions.
