Aprende un phrasal verb: Look Into

Otro día, y otro phrasal verb! Como vimos en el post que se titula Los phrasal verbs son formales o informales? se puede usar el phrasal verb look into para decir investigate.

Después de look into, se usa o un sustantivo (el asunto que se quiere investigar) o un verbo en gerundio. En eso, es igual que think of/about doing something, un verb pattern que vimos hace tiempo.

EJEMPLOS

Una cosa que tener en cuenta: cuando se habla de la investigación científica o académica, se suele usar research.

Investigate y investigation suenan más policial.
