Do I get extra points by saying and writing a considerable amount of phrasal verbs in TOEFL/IELTS? Does it actually matter? Thanks!

Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

    Hi Cleomir, as far as I can tell, you do not get extra points on the TOEFL/IELTS test by knowing a good number of phrasal verbs – that helps, no doubt about it but . . .-

    . . . what really matters is to prove that you are really a competent user of the English language.

    The best of luck with your exams Cleomir.

    Regards

    Thursday, July 24th 2014

    Hi Cleomir,

    If you use too many, you will actually lose points because they know that you studied them for this purpose. They want to see a strong command of the language, and no one uses too many phrasals at any given time. Use one or two to show you know them, not that you packed them into your brain just for the test.

A bit tricky phrasal… Didn’t do well in the quiz><

Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

    Me, neither, BianLei. I’m still confused :(

          Hi nihar,

          Do you have any problem in understanding the lesson above?

          Saturday, July 26th 2014

      Me too… I guess we should watch the video again and do the quiz once more…

      Thursday, July 24th 2014

    Hi BianLei,

    Please don’t worry. Watch it all over again. Makes notes based on what you learn and then watch it again and see if you can ‘refine’ your understanding of the video. Attempt the quiz again and practice some more examples. It’ll come :)

    all the best (y)

    Thursday, July 24th 2014

      Sorry, its ‘make’ notes, in the first line (y)

I got 5 correct out of 10. The score nice for me. But I need to keep studying “hold” phrasal verbs. Anyway, thank you for your lesson Adam :)

Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

I will be glad if anyone of you teachers can do a lesson on usage of am…. sometimes people ask from me when to use am or when not to use… specially with simple present

Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

    Hi Achalaisi,

    The verb am? as in the present form of the verb BE? It can only be used with the first person pronoun “I”, and only in the present tense (simple and continuous).

    Does this help?

    Friday, August 8th 2014

      Thnx Dear Adam… It helps… I am sooooo glad that teachers like you doing this for us… Thnx again….

      Thursday, August 14th 2014

    Hi sir,

    Why the sad face? I read in your EngVid ‘info’ that you are an English teacher. Please don’t be disheartened. You should be proud that you are doing a good job. Teaching is by no means, easy. It is great that you want to improve your language.

    best wishes
    abhi

    Thursday, July 24th 2014

10 of 10, unexpectedly. Thanks for the lesson

Thursday, July 24th 2014

You say, it’s so much fun and easy to understand. I’d disagree with that. Frasal verbs are the most difficult thing, because there are so many of them and they all look so incredibly similar to each other, it makes them very difficult to remember. :(

Thursday, July 24th 2014

    I agree with you, Tinve. I can`t remember prasal verbs.

    Thursday, July 24th 2014

    Hi tinve,

    Don’t be sad. All native speakers know English, right? Not all of them are ‘gifted’ and even small children speak in English that is grammatically correct up to a great extent. If they can, then why can’t you!? You just need practice. Try to use ‘phrasal’ verbs in your daily conversation and you will realize that Adam sir, was right :) Don’t accept anything as ‘difficult’.

    The best of luck :)
    regards
    abhi

        Thursday, July 24th 2014

          Thank you for the moral support, abnishek!:)

          Thursday, July 24th 2014

          You’re most welcome :)

          Thursday, July 24th 2014

    It’s all about practice Tinve. Well, practice and patience and time. It will come :)

    Friday, August 8th 2014

    i guess it was kind of sarcasm;)

    Thursday, February 26th 2015

Thank you for this lesson, I have just one question : What does the word “grap” mean in your sentence “Hold on also means grap” ?

Thursday, July 24th 2014

    Hello anthonyob grap mean to catch some thing and i dont know how to make it easier for you but this the close word to grap to catch some thing if you have more questions i will be glad to answer you in my personal page of fb
    https://www.facebook.com/abdallha.nabil.1

    have a nice time
    :)

    Friday, August 8th 2014

    Hi Anthony,

    Actually, the word is grab,with a b, and yes, it means hold on to something. Grab can also mean “take” but take in terms of hold something and take it.
    Does this help?

    Friday, August 8th 2014

Hi Adam..thanks for the lesson..but it was hard..:(
I have a question..The word “often” has the ‘t’ silent in it…right..??
But I have heard many people, even some engvid teachers, pronouncing the ‘t’ also….Can you plz explain..??
Thanks in advance..:)

Thursday, July 24th 2014

    Hello nrb,

    Don’t worry! None of them is considered wrong. In the school we were taught that the ‘t’ is silent. But it is not so. You can use both of them or the one that you like :) Even the oxford online dictionary mentions both the pronunciations as recognised ones :)

    So, you can ‘ofen’ say ‘often’ or you can ‘often’ say ‘ofen’ as per your will.

    hope it helped
    regards
    abhi

    Thursday, July 24th 2014

      Hello Abhishek1995,
      You explained nrb’s pronounciation querry very well by using simple language.Very nice :)
      In my school it was taught to me that we should pronoune it as ‘ofen’ instead of ‘often’ but i just like saying ‘often’.
      I think its all up to us by which way to pronounce.
      Regards,
      Tejalkk.

      Thursday, July 24th 2014

        Hi tejalkk,

        Thank you so much for the compliment. Yes, its up to your preference :) Both are equally accepted.

        regards
        abhi

        Thursday, July 24th 2014

          Hi Abhishek

          Thanks for your explanation…
          :)
          regards
          nrb

          Thursday, July 24th 2014

          Happy to help, nrb :)

          Thursday, July 24th 2014

        Sorry,i meant QUERY in earlier comment.

        Friday, July 25th 2014

    Hi Nrb,

    Abhi is right: silent or pronounced t are both correct. It usually has to do with regional accents more than anything else. In some places people will pronounce the t, in other places they won’t. It’s a matter of choice.

    Friday, August 8th 2014

Hello,, Adam,, Thanks for the lesson. review your lesson many times but its still confuse T_T

Thursday, July 24th 2014

    Keep trying Ying. It takes time to get used to these things. :)

    Friday, August 8th 2014

Most of the time it is somewhat challenging for me to keep in mind phrasal verbs and its usage.
But due to your great explanation Adam i think it is quite easy for me.
If possible then please try to upload video on PUT PHRASAL VERB AND ITS USAGE.
THANK YOU FOR NICE VIDEO as usual ADAM :-)

Hi Adam. Could you please talk about inversion in a video lesson?
Thank you.

Thursday, July 24th 2014

Thank you)
I got 7/10
For me, learning phrasal verbs is so hard.
I think I’ll never learn them, but I’ll strive

Thursday, July 24th 2014

    Hi kerr,

    No! I think you can learn them. Believe in yourself. English has not defined humans. Humans have defined English. And you are one!
    try, try and try! NEVER say “NEVER”.

    regards,
    abhi

    Thursday, July 24th 2014

      please i don’t know why do you always , regards

      plus your name in the end of what you say

      Thursday, July 24th 2014

        Hi noysse,

        Don’t worry. ‘regards’ is a word that can be used for many purposes. One of them is, to express friendliness in greetings. In a way, it means ‘best wishes’ :) And i write my name as a signature :)

        regards
        abhi

        Thursday, July 24th 2014

        Hi Noysse,

        We usually end letters, emails, etc., with well wishes. Regards, or Best regards, are examples of these.

        Friday, August 8th 2014

      Thank you))
      I’ll hope, one day I wake up and begin speaking English fluently and understand loads of words))
      Maybe, I just need more practice)

      Thursday, July 24th 2014

Thursday, July 24th 2014

I got 70/100 yet -.-

Thursday, July 24th 2014

I’m glad that there is another your lesson teacher, you are helping me so much for my studies!I need your advise; why have I learned so well to understand the language through sounds but i can not speak it so fast? Please, what can I do to improve speaking and writing? I’m studying everyday! Thank you Adam

Thursday, July 24th 2014

    Zoe88:
    1) Use a dictionary to check the spelling of what you write: it’s ‘advice’ not ‘advise’.
    2) Use a good English grammar: it’s ‘I study everyday’ not ‘I’m studying everyday’.
    3) Read English books.
    4) Sing English songs (see also #5).
    5) Use English movies: transcribe the dialogues, compare what you write with the English subtitles or the movie script, try to play a role (check your voice intonation).
    6) Try to think in English: prepare a list of basic questions like ‘what’s your name/mother’s name/dog’s name/cat’s name’ and others about your house, your car or what you like, ask someone to read the questions at random, reply as fast as you can.
    7) Enjoy your life! Don’t waste your time in replying to a lonely ‘monkey’ like me :-)
    GOOD LUCK with your English!

    Friday, July 25th 2014

      Thanks a lot Mauro! Don’t waste my time in replying ‘to you’, really, if you help me I would be happy, also because I will have to move in the US very soon.

      Friday, July 25th 2014

        Lucky you!
        I’d give my left arm to go work and live in Canada or the US!

        Saturday, July 26th 2014

      good advice Mauro :)

      Just one note: #2, she can say I’m studying every day, it’s just a matter of context which we don’t know.

      I hope to see you in Canada some day ;)

      Friday, August 8th 2014

    Hi Zoe,

    Firstly, don’t worry too much about it. This is natural to most learners. Mostly, it’s because listening is a passive skill, meaning the language comes already constructed properly into your mind and your mind knows what to do with it. Speaking and writing are active skills that require your mind to construct the language. It is a much more difficult thing to do. The main piece of advice I can offer is this: speak all the time. don’t try to be perfect; try to be understood. same goes for writing; write something, leave it for a few days, then go back and look for errors.
    Eventually, it will get easier.
    :)

    Friday, August 8th 2014

      Thanks again Adam, you’re really a good teacher.

8/10….although it’s a little bit confusing..i know practicing to use these phrasal verbs will help me..=)

Thursday, July 24th 2014

teacher Adam..can you make a lesson about the difference between THRU and THROUGH?..

Thursday, July 24th 2014

    Hi Cez,

    Actually, that’s a little too specific for a whole lesson. But… i will explain it here:

    Thru is the American version of through. Americans like to take shortcuts with the language, and this is just one example.

    (Br./Can.- colour… US – color)

    Hope this helps.

    Friday, August 8th 2014

First of all thanks to all English teachers. Why don’t u prefer to add new videos

Adam you are the best teacher in the world,thank you for this amazing lesson,i really was confused about this phrasal verbs but now i can use it in my speaking,thanks a lot!!!

Friday, July 25th 2014

Good score but I know I can do it better!!!

Friday, July 25th 2014

Hello andam im so bad at this phrasel but they aré very helpful thanks ;)

Friday, July 25th 2014

Hi Adam

My question is a general question about “English Subtitles of all EngVid lessons, I couldn’t find “Contact Us” button or something like this; so I had to ask here. When I watch these videos online I can turn on subtitle, but I download them and I want to have English subtitle along with them. where can I find these files? I don’t think EngVid provides subtitles files for its videos. is it true?

Best Wishes and thanks for all your efforts and perfect videos.

Friday, July 25th 2014
    Tuesday, July 29th 2014

      Thanks Ladan, I’ll try it

      Saturday, August 9th 2014

    Hi Masoud,

    Did you get the comment from Engvid?

    Friday, August 8th 2014

      Hi Adam

      What comment? I didn’t get any comment from Engvid in my email box.

      Saturday, August 9th 2014

        Check the link in the comments above.

        Tuesday, August 26th 2014

          I checked it before. it’s a nice site to download subtitle. I almost understand 90% the EngVid videos, but I prefer to have all their subtitles. Getting all subtitles one-by-one in Youtube by a slow speed (128kb) in Iran is actually a nightmare. I wish somebody has all them and upload somewhere for sharing.

          Thanks Adam for your attention.

          Tuesday, August 26th 2014

I got 80 Much better than the first time :D

Friday, July 25th 2014

hi Adam ,
I am very happy to upload this video phrasal verbs because I am a regular learner from your Eng vid web side page. I hope you will continue it .for communication native speakers it is very essential for me .tnx

Saturday, July 26th 2014

i got confused while doing my quiz but now i guess i have got what i was learning

Saturday, July 26th 2014

Hello,Adam
I’m so please to visit this site again.
I have again some other question which I hope you could answer them well
What is the deference between linguistic competence and linguistic performance?
What is the distinction between descriptive and prescriptive grammar?
What is the distinction between constitutive and regulative rules in English?

Saturday, July 26th 2014

    Hi Mehdi,

    Looks like you have a Linguistics essay to write :)

    I’m sure you can Google these terms and get some info. Unfortunately, I can’t write essays here.

    Friday, August 8th 2014

Hi Adam. Thanks for the lesson. I have a question, can we say hold off and hold over have same meaning?

Saturday, July 26th 2014

    yes it is

    Friday, August 8th 2014

    yes it is

    Friday, August 8th 2014

    Hi Cerena,

    In certain contexts, yes. If we can’t have a scheduled meeting today, for some reason, we can hold off on it until next week, or we can hold it over to next week.
    Basically, it means postpone in this case.
    Does that help?

    Friday, August 8th 2014

Thanks a lot Adam. You really help me! I like how you explain the meaning of these phrasal verbs, giving the examples, you make it really easy to understand their meaning.
A big great hug from Russia:)

Sunday, July 27th 2014

    Thank you Masha,

    Hugs from Russia are called bear hugs because they’re so strong :)

    Friday, August 8th 2014

      Haha, cool, didn’t know that! I think it’s also because Russia is often associated with this animal:)

      Friday, August 8th 2014

Thank you, Adam! Greetings from Athens, Greece!

Sunday, July 27th 2014

The reason why “hold + preposition” make me hard to understand is that they have all similar meaning…DELAY!!!!!! :p

Sunday, July 27th 2014

    To some extent: what about hold up, which means to rob?

    Friday, August 8th 2014

Thank you Adam for nice lesson..
I just wonder what is the difference between hold off and hold over. Could you clarify please?
Thank you..

Monday, July 28th 2014

    Hi Skrind,

    In some contexts, they ca mean the same thing. Hold off, though, is more “delay”, while Hold over is more “postpone”. Essentially, they are similar.

    Hold over can also mean wait until better conditions appear. We can also combine hold over to holdover, which is then a noun, which means a person who is waiting for better conditions.

    Does this help?

    Friday, August 8th 2014

      Yeah I got it. Thank you Adams.

      Friday, August 8th 2014

      Thanks Adam teacher! Nice answer

      Saturday, August 9th 2014

Monday, July 28th 2014

Monday, July 28th 2014

Hi Adam. I do have a question and which has confused me all the time when I read the article. Here’s my question. What is the difference between calculate\ estimate\ evaluate or assess? how to use these word in the sentence correctly? Thank you.

Monday, July 28th 2014

    Hi Andrew,

    Firstly, in many situations, these words can be synonyms. However, calculate suggests that you are getting an exact number, while estimate means you are guessing something close enough.
    “If you give me some time, I can calculate our spending needs for the next six months.” “If you ask me right now, how much we will need to spend over the next six months, I’d estimate about $100,000.”
    evaluate and assess are more synonymous, and mean to come to a conclusion about the value or condition of something.
    “Before we assess the needs of the company, we should evaluate what we already have.”

    Does this help?

    Friday, August 8th 2014

thank u sir

Thursday, July 31st 2014

Many thanks

Thursday, July 31st 2014

Hi Adams , It’s a pleasure for me to learn english through your lessons. Adams I would like to ask you a question what is the difference between this expression “the car window” and “the window of the car”? are both correct? is there a rule for this?
Thanks my dear friend
I’m longing for your answer.

Thursday, July 31st 2014

    Hi The Best (good handle :) ),

    Yes, both are correct. When you have a possessive that describes something 9especially a relationship) you can shorten the possessive expression (of…) to a compound noun, where the first noun acts as an adjective:

    A friend of my son’s = my son’s friend

    Does this help?

    Friday, August 8th 2014

      Absolutly, Adam, and as always thank you for your explanation, you’re a good teacher.

      Monday, August 11th 2014

Friday, August 8th 2014

Hi Adam,
Thank you again. There is a single problem in your Engvid’s youtube channel. They leave 49 videos of you but two of them were not unique. I think that instead of “inversion”, they repeat another one. That was the confusing point. I will be really grateful if you check this. one can find it just in engvid.com not in their youtube channel. Thank you for your great and helpful videos.

Saturday, August 9th 2014

Hi Adam,
Nice Lesson.. I am holding on in this for your next lessons.. Thank you

I was to watch this video a long time, but I was afraid, it’s many things to remember, but i got it! They look very similar for us non-speakers.

Sunday, August 17th 2014

hello ADAM,thank you for this useful lesson,
i’m still confused even i could have 10 out of 10 in the quiz,my question is the following:

regards …

Sunday, August 17th 2014

Thanks

Friday, September 5th 2014

Hi everyone =)And Hello Mr. Adam. First of all, i want to say THANKS A LOT for everything you have been teaching us. ( If i made a mistake, i’m sorry in advance) I like your style of explainig, and exaples, that you use make your lessons easier, i like you jokes, so everything you do in every video is fantastic. =) And there’s a very interesting thing in a quiz, that i didn’t understand. Here it is: “Be what careful about the promises you make.” I know, this one is very easy, BUT i can’t understand the meaning of the word “what”. Because if we exclude this word, the meaning of this sentence will not change. I’m confused because of that.

Monday, September 8th 2014

Thanks Adam and your teaching is interesting a inspiriting!
I found the quiz is helpful to ensure I did learn from the lesson. It is difficult to understand the different of hold off, hold up, hold over as they got similar meaning as “delay”.Thanks again/

Thursday, September 11th 2014

Thank you so much Adam… You’re a great teacher…

Saturday, September 13th 2014

Friday, September 18th 2015

Hello, Adam. I like your lessons very much ;) But somtimes I have a questions, for example – what is substential difference between “hold up” and “hold over”? They both mean – delay BECAUSE OF smth.

Friday, November 6th 2015

Oh, sorry, Adam … I got one more question on the same topic – about phrasal verb HOLD. The matter is that after your lesson I’ve listened the Alex’s lesson. And he told about HOLD IN. It seems for me that HOLD IN and HOLD DOWN have the similar meanings. Am I right?

Friday, November 6th 2015

Thank you Adam for this intersting and important phrasal verbs! sorry about mistakes i am intermidiet.

Wednesday, November 25th 2015

Hi, Adam.
By the way, speaking about Phrasal Verbs, I think it’s very hard to learn them, but I will never give them up.
Ok? Bye.

Wednesday, November 25th 2015

Thanks,Adam.

Wednesday, December 9th 2015

thanks

Monday, January 4th 2016

İ got 9 correct out of 10.great job.thank you Adam so much.

Tuesday, January 5th 2016

Hi Adam, you mentioned that hold off, hold up and hold over have the meaning of delay / postpone. Can I use them interchangeably in all events?

For example, in your Quiz question: Due to the success of the exhibit, the gallery has decided that its conclusion will be held ________ until next week.

The answer is “held over” for the above. If “held off” and “held up” are in the options, would that be correct too?

Thank you.
