phrase verbes are very often to see in english, so, most of the time we are confused for the usage of phrase verbes, this lesson is useful to grasp the usage and differentiate the meaning of the phrase verbes

Tuesday, August 23rd 2016

then, we can create our phrasal verb. For example, for instance; i have stopped smoking down three years ago . Or; how did fishing go? – terrible, i fished down. Maybe,,, i just tried…

Thanks, James. It is really a nice lesson. I like your way to visualize an English word in order to figure out the definition of the word. I speak English as a compound bilingual, so I make use of the visualized information in my mind every time I listen, speak or read in English. I hope you make another video which help us visualize the other prepositions such as up, in , on ,and e.t.c. Thanks in advance.

Ciao (Italian), Chao (Spanish) or tchau (Brazilian Portuguese).

Thank you, teacher! 10/10 :)

Saturday, September 3rd 2016

“to come down or go down the prices” is my doubt, but I believe it’s possible to understand the meaning and it doesn’t confuse with the use of “turn down”. Very interesting exposition, good job teacher James, but could you spell your surname, please? I have doubt how I could write it. Thanks a lot and best regards.

Other (totally irrelevant) comment : I guessed you were left-handed by looking at your diagram on “decrease” that goes from right to left ;)

Friday, September 9th 2016

hi man thanks
you are a very good educator. i would like to be as talkative as you. i like your ways and methods. Really awesome.

Friday, September 23rd 2016

i wonder if there are ways and methods that our mind flows and don’t block while keeping a talk. i liked so much that video about filling the gap with random words, also writing a poem. I think that was one of the good ones for tearing down boundaries on mind
