Good simple drawings to illustrate these prepositions of place and movement, with the exception of 'along', the meaning of which isn't very clear here.

How to learn phrasal verbs more easily

Tip 2. Find out how common the phrasal verb is (a native speaker will be a big help here). Focus on learning common phrasal verbs, not ones which are seldom used. 

There are hundreds and thousands of phrasal verbs. Not all are common; some are used in certain areas only. Be realistic – you'll never know them all (native speakers don't, either), so make sure you put your energy into learning those that are the most commonly used.

How to learn phrasal verbs more easily

Tip 3. Don’t try to learn every meaning of a phrasal verb: one meaning is enough to start with. Learn the other meanings once you are sure you’ll remember the first.

Phrasal verbs often have more than one meaning. Take put up, for example:

Put up can mean 'accommodate someone for a night or two'.
Put up can also mean 'tolerate something/someone'.
Put up can also mean 'to erect a tent'.
 and . . . we'll stop there. You get the point – there are many meanings.

If you try to cram them all in your head at once, you'll just confuse yourself.

Do yourself a favour – learn one meaning at a time.
