"The meaning of some "Trennbare Verben" are very close or even same" So you have an example? The principle of "tennbare Verben" isn't that complicated. Take a look at those tables: http://www.mein-deutschbuch.de/lernen.php?menu_id=30 The best way to learn "trennbare Verben" is to learn the most important Präfixe. A few examples: zurück- = back zurückgehen => ich gehe zurück (I go back) zurückfahren => ich fahre zurück (I drive back) zurückschauen => ich schaue zurück (I look back) weg- = away wegwerfen => ich werfe weg (I throw away) weggehen => ich gehe weg (I go away) los => meaning in this context: starting from this spot, off losfahren => ich fahre los (I drive off) losgehen => ich gehe los (I go off) loskommen => ich komme los von etwas/ ich komme von etwas los (I get away from sth.) And so on.
