    Cheers!

    Thursday, February 9th 2017

      What happened??? 🤔I was the second one. I think both of us put comment at the same time!!!!😅

      Thursday, February 9th 2017

        Dear Natanna. I’ve just read your comment in the last training video. It seems you want to come and visit my country. That’s awesome. You know, I really don’t like political or religious discussion. So lets forget about it completely. You wanted some advices about unique places and sightseeing in Iran. Seriously, I can’t put all of them in this limit space, but I’m going to introduce the best ones:
        1: I seriously suggest you, visit our symbol; Takht_e_jamshid. It’s also known as Pesepolise or Parsa. It is located 60km northeast of the city of Shiraz of Fars province.
        2: tombs of Hafez and Saadi in Shiraz. They are VERY popular and famous poets. in some other countries they are well-known too. In a special night, known as Yalda night, we read Hafez’s poems and with his poems we soothsay.
        3: you should visit our capital; Tehran.
        It has many beautiful and GREAT palaces. These palaces are located in two complexes; Niavaran complex and Sa’dabad complex and also Golestan palace. You can also visit Milad Tower and Azadi corner.
        4: visit Isfahan province, it’s also known as Isfahan half of the world! It’s a very BIG city and it has many sightseeing to visit, that’s why we call it with this name. Isfahan mosque, Si_o_seh pol (Isfahan bridge of 33 arches), khaju bridge and so many other bridges but they are the most famouse and Isfahan Ali qapu and Naghsh_e_jahan square, known as Imam square or Shah square.
        😥. Let me take a break. There are too much to introduce. First, you can search about these, and then in the next comment I will continue.

        Thursday, February 9th 2017

          nkh.453, thank you very much for such great introduction of your country. Your love to motherland BRINGS ABOUT my interest to Iran.
          I’m sorry if I BROUGHT YOU DOWN with some restricted topics I HAD BROUGHT UP before. You are quite right, I will avoid them.
          And you’ve changed my mind and BROUGHT ME AROUND to understanding the relationships between genders in Iran.
          All these phrasal verbs are new for me, so I might misused them. But I did my best.

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

          Hi abhishekawasthi! Nice to meet you. I tried to find you on Skype, but failed. Nobody was found..
          You can find me on skype: Nataly Kostova.

          Sunday, February 19th 2017

          My comment is waiting to be approved once more.
          You`ll see it later, I`m sure.
          I`ll be short this time: THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH!
          Have a nice day! Don`t miss your school!

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

          I want to complete my expression:
          Tombs of Darius( Drains the graet) and Kourosh(kourosh the great),are located near Shiraz, Kashan city, Kermanshah city, Persian Gulf, Khazar beaches and many other places besides our delicious food are a part of Iran.
          I suggest you, use special tours to make this trip easier. I think you can’t visit all of these places by your own. As you know, these tours have a special plan to visit all of these. Good luck and take care.

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

          I correct my mistake: Darius the great.

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

          I`m overload with all these places to visit! We will definately read about them, thank you.
          You are right, we will need a super guide to make our journer perfect.
          But, there is some troble: my husband likes to be a guide for me as he is a historian and works as a guide in Russia.
          So long!

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

          trouble, sorry.

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

          Oh, thanks! I use my cellphone to text sometimes and there is too small font. But I always misspell the word definitely. Thank you one more time.
          So long!

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

      Hello nataanna, SKIKDA and nkh.453, Nowadays I find myself a little lazy when I comme to comment, even sometimes I had an opportunity to be the first bird, I don’t know exactly what prevent me, may be Quora.com, I became addicted to it, or perhaps Hunter x Hunter 1999, But don’t worry the only thing that I dont miss is to read your comments and to see how the flock of bird land on this web. Congratulation SKIKDA.

    Thursday, February 9th 2017

      Wow!nataanna you really have got a big circle of friends at the forum,thats great.reading all of yours comments made me feel like I am in an old British T.V. show “Mind your Language”‘s class room.The students there also used to argue with each other over such minor and silly issues,but still it was such a fun.You people in the same way are making the whole learning process more interesting,at the same time its a very good way to practice the language.I really emjoyed reading all the comments.I would say its a lesson with in a lesson.keep it up.

      Thursday, February 9th 2017

        Hi, eichi! I haven’t seen that show, but I suppose I’d like it (according to the title).
        Life is mainly boring and it depends only on you to make it colorful. So I try hard.
        Did you notice, Emma had shared some personal details (I mean Gismo). I think it’s the best way we can get acquainted with our teachers more.
        Join our group to comment the first. It’s interesting!
        See you.

        Thursday, February 9th 2017

          Oh!dear,I think I am of your mind I really like to make not only mine but also others life interesting and entertaining.You are absolutely right life itself is really a very harsh thing its like a ferocious wolf inquest of an innocent being to prey upon.It has no mercy.so every individual has to make it a little bit colourfull and joyfull himself.Great job if you are trying to male others happy and sure I will join hands with you all if your aim is to make others life joyful but first I request you and your circle to pray for my Mom’s health she is rather sick these days please do pray for her health everyone!

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

          Hi, eichi! I wish your mum to be back on her feet soon. What’s her name? I’ll pray for her recovery, of course.
          Be strong and take heart! Everything will be OK!

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

          Thank you so much Nataanna,May God accept your prayers and bestow her good health.

          Friday, February 10th 2017

          Hello eichi. I’m really sorry to hear that. Sure, I pray for your mother’s health. I hope she can get her health again.

          Friday, February 10th 2017

          I correct my mistake: l hope she can regain her health

          Friday, February 10th 2017

          Saturday, February 11th 2017

          Dear Eichi! Sorry, I haven`t answered your comments. I`ve just returned from Greece. I was in Athens. You are right, it`s not as hot as I want to be, but it`s more convenient for sightseeing not in high touristic season, how do you think?
          I hope, your mum`s test reports are fine and clear. See you

          Sunday, February 19th 2017

          Monday, February 20th 2017

          Hi nataanna and nkh.453,have you gone through teacher’s reply to my comment in the last lesson about 100th video celebrations he says no one would notice even if they celebrate the event since the management already tried it for the other teachers but in vain.Do you think it would be the same in our teachers case,well I don’t think so all students at the forum adore our teacher very much.Let us all request engvid moderator to celebrate the event.lets we all congratulate our teacher and appreciate his work.You told me last time that you will float the idea in the next lesson lets do it quickly before the next lesson.

          Saturday, February 11th 2017

        yes, i’ve gone into this show and i like it thank you eichi.

        Friday, February 10th 2017

          My pleasure skikda

          Saturday, February 11th 2017

          Hi eichi. How are you ? How is mother? Believe me ! I love all mothers as like as my own mother . So I wrote mother not your mother .

          Thursday, February 16th 2017

          Surely . It is needed to be approved.

          Thursday, February 16th 2017

          Hi soei I really appreciate it and you know why you like all mothers it is because all mothers are the same,made of love and effection.Unfortunately my mother’s reports says that she has lungs cancer.I just can’t accept this bitter truth,I am totally ruined so I request you and all the students at the forum and even all the teachers at Engvid to please pray for my Mother’s quick recovery.You know I was so excited for teacher’s next 100th lesson but who knew what time will bring to me…Can’t express my feelings.need your prayers

          Wednesday, February 22nd 2017

          I wish the best for your mother Eichi, and as well for you and your family. I know how difficult this time must be. Stay strong for them.

          Friday, February 24th 2017

          Hi eichi. My mother says illness comes a lot , but leaves little by little ! I don’t know if it clear . You should be strong as Mr. Adam said. Don’t forget mother needs this strongness to become better. I do pray for her. Please say my hello to her from Iran.

          Friday, February 24th 2017

      Have a good Friday and..
      see you soon!^^

      Thursday, February 9th 2017

i got 7 correct out of 10 ^_^

Thursday, February 9th 2017

thank you adam for this interesting lesson ,although there are a lot of meaning of these phrasals verb, i will try to catch the most of them.
you’ve mentioned that there is no diffrent beteween ‘bring it back’ and ‘take it back’ though there is a diffrent between ‘bring’ and ‘take’ and our teacher Rebecca has cleared this in her privious lessons.
could you please give me more explanation for that ?

Thursday, February 9th 2017

    Hi Skikda,

    bring and take are the same action, but the direction is different. Take away from the speaker, bring to the speaker.

    Does this help? As for phrasals, once you add the preposition, anything can happen ;)

    Friday, February 24th 2017

Thank you Adam. Always glad to watch your new video.

Thursday, February 9th 2017

Useful but not very easy lesson! Thanks Adam.

Thursday, February 9th 2017

Hey Adam
You got a lot of phrasal verbs. I wonder if all natives know all of’em. I’m falling apart every times you bring ’em up. This is a sort of challenge.
Thanks for your lessons anyway. You’r great teacher.

Thursday, February 9th 2017

    Hi Gori,

    It’s just like any other vocab- you need to use it often to remember it.

    Phrasals just tend to be confusing to nonnative speakers, so I try to clear them up. You shouldn’t try to memorize them all as there are too many.

    Friday, February 24th 2017

Did you brought all your videos on, I would definitely bring them on.I’m fascinated by learning materials that will be getting me ahead in terms of taking IELTS Academic Test such as phrasal verbs, idioms , advance grammar and collocations. I have been waiting for learning more and more of them.Thank you Adam for every stunning videos that you are recording.

Thursday, February 9th 2017

I’ve made a grave mistake! At the beginning sentence that was just written, present form of bring should be put there not past participle form of it.

Thursday, February 9th 2017

    Also, “bring them off” is correct in the first sentence not “bring them on”.Sorry for all these easy mistakes that I have just made.

    Thursday, February 9th 2017

      No worries Kami. the point s to try, yes? :)

      Friday, February 24th 2017

Awesome lesson, as always.
Thanks Adam

Thursday, February 9th 2017

Nice class…

Thursday, February 9th 2017

I have reviewed twice this lesson, it was difficult for me to guess all the meanings of these phrasal verbs with “bring”, you have to achieve that these prepositions are in the correct way to express your ideas, it was not easy to join and mix a verb and its particles to make a nine different words with more than nine meanings, step by step or bit by bit, it needs to practice a lot to domain all of these expressions. Anyway, thanks a lot, teacher Adam, it was a full lesson for me.

Thursday, February 9th 2017

    Hello, angardiobel! You’ve got such a gorgeous dream! You are living very crunch time. I wish you have an ace up in your sleeve to achieve your goals! Good luck!
    This lesson wasn’t easy for me as well. I watched it three times, then I recorded all phrasal verbs with definitions, completed the test, commented a bit, using phrases (they are waited to be approved). but I still don’t feel comfortable with them. I agree, too many vocabulary in one place and lack of examples written on board. But who promised an easy life? No sweet without sweat! Oh, I can tell better: a cat in gloves catches no mice.
    Thank you, Adam for making us work!

    Thursday, February 9th 2017

    Hello! You are right. I had to watch this lesson three times to get 100 on the quiz. We have to practice phrasal verbs a lot. Good luck!

    Thursday, February 9th 2017

Hi Adam you are a great teacher! Thank you for your perseverance for bringing out your knowledge to people who are in need to learn English language, I’m learning so much from you, I’m new here in engvid and I tried to catch up from all of your videos that are uploaded in YouTube, they are all worthed to watch. I am excited for your new videos. 😊

Thank you for this very useful lesson, Adam. I’m very glad I got 100 on the quiz. Bye for now!

Thursday, February 9th 2017

Oh i need to review this phrasal bring hahhaa i got 60 oh no

Thursday, February 9th 2017

Is bring to reality the same as bring to light? Hope to hear from you. Regards.

Friday, February 10th 2017

    A little different, Screenone. Bring to reality means make it real (as opposed to a dream, or imagination). Bring to light means uncover (as in reveal a secret).

    Friday, February 24th 2017

This lesson so hard

Friday, February 10th 2017

This lesson was great, thanks Adam.

    Friday, February 24th 2017

Hi Adam! Thanks for teaching us about phrasal verbs, this is something really important to learn about.

Friday, February 10th 2017

7/10 not bad. Perhaps I did not listen to you carefully. but thanks without end for sharing this wonderful video lesson :)

Friday, February 10th 2017

hi sir,first of all,thank you for the lesson.
according to the phrasal verb bring back. you said it means 1)take sth back to where you take it before. 2)to bring sth that has been done or dead,like revive. but i found in oxford dictionary that it has other meaning,to reintroduce.i tried to understand it but in oxford dictionary i found only one example.could you sir provide me with other examples to make it little more clear to me? thanks in advance

Friday, February 10th 2017

    Hi Khalid,

    Sometimes people try to bring something back to fashion, for example clothing styles that were popular in the 80s are now becoming popular again, so they are coming back into fashion, and the people who are wearing them are bringing them back into fashion.

hi , my question is what the difference between phrasal verb and appositions ?

Friday, February 10th 2017

    Hi Bakhada,

    these are two unrelated things. An apposition can be a reduced adjective clause that is used to rename or define a noun:

    The city of Ottawa, Canada’s capital, is famous for its canal. (…Ottawa, which is Canada’s capital, …

    Canada’s capital in this sentence is an appositive.

    It can also be a renaming:
    William Robert, or Billy-Bob, is a famous actor.

    Does this help?

        Hello Mr L-AMINE. If you have any question about my country, put your questions here. As it’s possible and as I can, I will answer you. I’m so sorry, but I’m not willing to connect with someone through e-mail.

        Wednesday, February 22nd 2017

          Hello nkh , thank you for your kind reply, however i still need some hotel names and adress at Shraz,and if it is possible to rent car ,and the current rate exchange,
          Warm Regards

          Wednesday, February 22nd 2017

          Hello again. You mean SHIRAZ???

          Thursday, February 23rd 2017

          If you mean SHIRAZ, I can suggest you these top hotels: Setar_e_gan hotel, Zandieh hotel and Pars hotel. You can book these hotels online too. All of these are located in the best places in Shiraz. To tell you the truth I don’t know how I can say to you about their addresses, you should find their addresses for your self.
          You can rent cares too. But because I don’t live there , I don’t know where you can rent a car. But I assure you, that Shiraz has this facility.
          And about currency rate exchange, I should say, you had better use banks which give you a lower rate. I think in the airport you can do that too , but I’m not sure. Banks are open around 8:30 in the morning and they are located on main Zane street. And abou the rate, you should search it in internet by your own. For example, maybe the address of this bank will help you: http://www.bmi.ir
          It’s the address of one of the best banks in Iran.
          I’m so sorry if I couldn’t help you as much as you expected.

          Thursday, February 23rd 2017

          I correct my mistakes:
          1: you can rent cars too.
          2: …on main Zand street.
          3: And about the rate, you should search in the internet…

          Thursday, February 23rd 2017

          Oh , Yes it is Shiraz , sorry for my bad sppeling,and thank you for reply,have a nice day

          Thursday, February 23rd 2017

          No, actually i didn’t answer you yet. My comment is waiting to be approved. Wait for it please.

          Thursday, February 23rd 2017

          Okay nkh , Thank you anyway for your kind supports, however you can email me on redjemamine@outlook.com

          Thursday, February 23rd 2017

I think I will have to watch this video several times to keep all these phrasal verbs in mind.Teacher I didn’t get the concept of “e” and “a” in effect rather I could not get that entire part of the video and second thing,will you tell me the difference between “bring”and”Take” I heard so many native people they use bring in place of take.for example they say bring it to her.instead of take it to her while sending something for someone.why is it like this?

Friday, February 10th 2017

    We have the same questions.

    Sunday, February 12th 2017

      then lets wait together for teacher’s reply bro.

      Sunday, February 12th 2017

    Hi Eichi,

    Technically, it should be take away from the speaker and bring to the speaker.
    That said, people don’t really care that much when the meaning is understood. Bring it to her is technically a mistake, but the meaning is clear, so no one pays attention to it. I know this doesn’t help learners of English, but you have to take everything you hear from native speakers with a grain of salt.

    As for e and a in effect/affect, it’s different spelling for essentially different words. effect as a noun and affect as a noun are two different things, and same for the verbs.

    Friday, February 24th 2017

i think i have to repeat this video many times

Hello Adam. I have recently run into a construction “be to do something” and it seemed to be pretty confusing. I wonder if you have already covered it in your videos. I suppose it might be an interesting lesson to create. Thank you

Saturday, February 11th 2017

    Hi Yurrimysnyk,

    Can you give me the full example sentence?

    Friday, February 24th 2017

      Hi, Adam. Thak you for your reply
      Here is an original sentence
      “If we are to compete successfully in world markets, we must invest more money in education and training.”
      I get the meaning of the sentence but I don’t completely understand when to use the construction to be semantically correct.
      Would the sentence have the same meaning if I changed the beginning like this:
      “If we are set to compete successfully in world markets…” or “If we want to compete successfully in world markets…”
      Thank you for your time

      Saturday, February 25th 2017

I thought this lesson was a little hard, because It has a lot of meaning. But, after to answer the question I could see that I brought around the difficulties. Right?

Sunday, February 19th 2017

Hi! I’m Rafael. I’d like to ask you, Adam, to make a video about the use of the infinitive with “to”. Because I once read that after some verbs the following verbs need to be written in the infinite with “to”, and there are others verbs that will always be written in the infinitive with “to”. I think I explained it right. Please make this video. I’ve had this doubt for so long time. Please answer my question, Adam. I really need to get rid of this doubt. And sorry about my grammar( I guess everything I just wrote is wrong), but I have to understand that. Thank you for your attention .

Monday, February 20th 2017

    Hi Rafael,

    All infinitive verbs have ‘to’, so I’m not exactly sure what you mean, but here is a video by Ronnie that might be helpful:
    http://www.engvid.com/gerund-or-infinitive/

    Let me know if this is what you had in mind.

    Friday, February 24th 2017

I got a 90! thats the better result Ive had wiht you Adam, your tests almost all the time are not for someone who did not pay enough attention lol.

See a

Monday, February 20th 2017

Thanks, Adam.
I want to ask ‘on the street’ and ‘in the street’ what is the difference?

Tuesday, February 21st 2017

    Hi Sophie,

    I think we only use in the street when we are talking about people using the street. People are walking in the street today for the parade. Otherwise, cars move on the street. There might be a difference between American and British uses though. I’ll have to check.

    Friday, February 24th 2017

I got better result but not yet good :(. Thanks your analysis.

Tuesday, February 21st 2017

Hi Adam
my score is : 8 to 10

Thank you for your lesson
