This list of multi-word verbs (J-R) includes the different types of multi-word verbs (MWVs) out there, such as phrasal verbs (verbs + adverbs), prepositional verbs (verbs + prepositions) and semi-auxiliaries. It is intended as a reference for teachers, not as a mere list to be presented as-is to students. Don't forget to point out that, like so many other verbs, many MWVs can have more than one meaning.
