Very useful lesson, thanks.
What does “spoinking mean”?

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Loved this lesson, I’m really into learning phrasal verbs. I just want to ask a question about the use of “drink up“ in the example as well as in the quiz it was used to mean finishing a drink in a bar, but I wonder if “drink up“ can be used in a different context. For example, I need to leave now, so I have to drink my coffee up. Does this sentence make sense? Thanks in advance.

Thursday, December 1st 2016

although the phrasel verbes are difficult to master them, i will try to remember of them as much as i can, thank you gill.

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Excellent video. Thanks

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Thank you, Gill! This video is really helpful.

Thursday, December 1st 2016

I am in panic. My English teacher asked me to do a presentation but I do not how to start. Please I have no idea what to do!!

Thursday, December 1st 2016

I’m so thankful for this lesson. So useful!!
Have a nice weeek.

Thursday, December 1st 2016

The prisoners were sitting in the corner whispering to each other. The guard was worried that they were _________ something up.

=> i don’t know why the answer for this question is cooking up :v :v Could anyone else explain to help me?

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Interesting lesson. Thank you very much Gill!

Thursday, December 1st 2016

According your speach, the sentence in 7 task is not correct.
“Cheryl is a great manager, but she really messed up the presentation to our client”. It is wrong because we have to write: messed “something” up. Then the correct sentence will: “but she really messed the presentation to our client up”. Or am I not right?

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Thank you very much Gill
Please i want learn more about conjunction verb
I hope see you speak about that

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Hello Gill.

#4: I use to say it the way you use, but can I say “look up FOR it”?
#6: Why did you use “I’m having” instead of “I have”. This is the first time I see ING in this type of phrases.

Thanks & greets from Argentina (Hope it is from England someday)

Hi buddies. I can’t watch any video,even in You Tube! Please help. What should I do????!!!

Thursday, December 1st 2016

    You probably need a VPN to watch YouTube (and EngVid) videos in your country.

    Thursday, December 1st 2016

      Maybe. By the way thank you.

      Friday, December 2nd 2016

I should say I have been able to watch videos before but now I can’t.

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Nice, I have a good luck or I have understood all of the concepts very well, I think that it was the second last sentence because teacher Gill explains so much clear and carefully that I could imagine by myself learning English. Now I am more confident with my look at this difficult subjet such as the phrasal verbs, although they are always complicated for foreigners student like me. Thanks a lot teacher Gill.

Thursday, December 1st 2016

    I think I have had a mistake in “foreigners student”, it will be “foreigner students” as a right one expression. Sorry.

    Thursday, December 1st 2016

Thank you Gill! I think that the phrasal verbs are very difficult for non native english speakers and this classes are very useful for us.

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Thank you so useful phrases.
is it allowed to use those kind of phrases in academic writing??

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Thank you, Gill. It was a great lesson.

Thursday, December 1st 2016

I nailed it. Thanks a lot for the lesson. please keep it up ma’am!

Thursday, December 1st 2016

Hi Gill,

So nice to see you again.

Thanks for sharing new lesson.

Thursday, December 1st 2016

I got 09/10. Gill, i m a little bit confused getting question 2. Why “messing” shouldn’t come in that. What i got from the sentence is prisoners were whispering so guard should assume that they are planning or going to mess something. In prison ,i guess there isn’t stove available for prisoner ,so how they can cook something? Please make this clear to me . Well, i found the quiz very interesting over all. Thanks gill.

Thursday, December 1st 2016
