Very interesting lesson Adam, but a little confusing.
but thank you a lot.

Yes, I like this lesson very much :). I’m confused, but this lesson is very interesting and useful! Thank you, Adam :)

Wednesday, September 9th 2015

Thank you very much Adam. May you have a very happy life.

Wednesday, September 9th 2015

Thank you Adam! I got only 7 correct out of 10 after watching this lesson for the first time. I am confused with (or by?) back away and back out. I think I should watch this lesson more than one time.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Adam, you are a peach of a teacher. Not matter the score; the ifo is valuable. TAh

Dear Adam
thank you for your lesson.It’s very useful
I confused about this question ” It is a good idea to have someone guide you as you try to back your car _____ a tight space.”
you said back in = back into, so why the answer is into ?

Thursday, September 10th 2015

    i suppose ”back your car in” should have been true.
    regards

    Saturday, September 12th 2015

    Hi pjapnghiem,
    I’ve done the same mistake, so I’ve listened the lesson once again.
    If I well understand I think “back into” can be used with these 2 cases :
    1. The car backed into the wall (= bump the wall)
    2. The car backed into its place (“in + to” = mean a movement toward the inside of something, the place in this example).

    Hope It’s right and it will help you.

    Sunday, September 13th 2015

    Hi Pjapnghiem,

    Nico explained it well. Space, in this example, means a contained area. So you need to back into (inside of) it.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

      Tuesday, November 3rd 2015

Why are phrasal verbs so difficult to learn and to remember???
Thank you very much Adam to make this process easier ;)

Thursday, September 10th 2015

It is a little bit confused but ..I could get it better.in my mind We have to use them in a conversation.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

very good lesson but is not a new lesson, is an old lesson. What’s happened.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

    Hi Frank,

    Where have you seen it previously?

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

      Sorry Adam, I have confused with the lesson “Phrasal Verbs As Nouns” as you see, I follow all your lessons. Thank you, your lessons are my favorites.

      Thursday, September 24th 2015

        Can we say, So you back down of him ? Or just back down !? Adam, give me a hand please

        Tuesday, November 8th 2016

Thank you. Wonderful lesson.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

clear but not to back off (the pressure) to learn the different meanings. Need to practice.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Thank you for all your help.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

I enjoy learning phrasal verbs because sometimes its befogging but still very interesting to learn.Thank you Adam.I think I could understand it only because of your fantastic explanation.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Neat and clear explanation!Not a single superfluous word

Thursday, September 10th 2015

    Thanks :)

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Hey, Adam, and thank you for this lesson. I was wondering whether you could explain to me why it is incorrect to use ‘back in’ in task 6?

Thursday, September 10th 2015

    Hi Cryman,

    Space, in this example, means a contained area. So you need to back into (inside of) it.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Useful lesson. I noted it is a little bit tricky quiz. There is no verb “back in” but in each question we come across such choice “in”.:)

Thursday, September 10th 2015

I liked this lesson. I missed a few sample sentences.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

It is a kind of deja vu or saw this kind before?

Thursday, September 10th 2015

    You’re the second to mention this Hector. When did you see it before? It was new for me.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

      hahaha really? I thought I had seen about 6 months, anyway thanks Adam

      Saturday, October 3rd 2015

It is a kind of deja vu or saw this class before?

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Thanks for the nice informations !!.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

thanks for the interesting lesson.the explaining was nevertheless not enough

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Hello Adam,
Come and sit ‘by’ me.
We stayed in a cottage ‘by’ the sea.
Come and sit ‘beside’ me.
He kept his bag close ‘beside’ him at all times.
He sat down ‘next to’ Pam.
There’s a public telephone ‘next to’ the pub.
It’s a little village ‘near’ Cardiff.
I don’t want to sit ‘near’ the window.
I’d like to live ‘near’ my parents, if possible.
The prepositions above are confusing words to me (by, beside, next to, and near)
Do you have a magic solution how to use them easily without any embarrassment?
I asked Mr. Alex this question and he answered:
No tricks, unfortunately. Just memorization and trying to think of the logic to them.
Near = close to
Beside = next to/directly to the left or right
By = around/near/close to
Sorry. Wish I had better news for you. :)

Thursday, September 10th 2015

    Hi Fahdbensalman,

    I’m afraid Alex is right. There are many parts of the language that simply require memorization.

    That being said, these prepositions are often interchangeable, meaning you shouldn’t make an embarrassing mistake if you used them that way.

    Come and sit by/next to/beside me.– all of these would express the same meaning. Near would be a little strange as it still leaves some space between you and the other person.

    I will only add some nuances:
    next to–in a sequence
    beside–to the side
    by– wherever there is space close to
    near– not far

    hope this helps a little.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

      Mr. Adam,
      I swear that all your nuances are valuables.
      They make big differences in our comprehension.
      Thanks.

      Monday, September 28th 2015

Thanks Adam for this lesson!

I imagine as a good practice to learn ‘phrasal verbs’ filling a big matrix of verbs versus prepositions with their respective meanings. Maybe using this resource I will learn a fraction of them one day :-)

Thursday, September 10th 2015

    Good luck Fcicerre :)

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

It’s not easy to memorize this less :)

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Hi Alex actually I have been studied English for a long time. But I don’t know a lot of vocabularies. Please help me out some vocabularies

    Hi Abdelle,

    I do test-prep courses only. I’m not sure about the other teachers though. You can write a comment on their videos as well.

    Good luck.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Thank Adam! Great!

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Thanks a lot, Adam.
But I have a question.
“Imagine you are/were a farmer, what will you do?”
When we use ‘imagine’, we should ‘are’ or ‘were’?
Besides, the last sentence what tense should I use?
‘will’ is it correct?
Thanks in advance. :)

Thursday, September 10th 2015

    I get one more question.
    Rice is mostly grown to the south of the Chang Jiang.
    Why do we use ‘to the south…’ but not ‘in the south…’?
    Thanks!

    Wednesday, September 23rd 2015

    Hi Sophie,

    “Imagine you were a farmer; what would you do?”

    (although, many native speakers would use ‘are’ and it has become acceptable.)

    To the south means ‘south of’. In the South (capital S) means in the area that is known as the South.

    Although, you can say in the southern regions.

Thursday, September 10th 2015

the answer of question number 6 is wrong, in is the correct answer

Friday, September 11th 2015

    Hi Deedo,

    Space, in this example, means a contained area. So you need to back into (inside of) it.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Real good. Thanks, Adam.

Friday, September 11th 2015

May Allah reward you greatly.
It is a very useful lesson.

Friday, September 11th 2015

    You’re right, Rena. :)

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Hello, Adam! Phrasal verbs always are confusing me. But at least about them with “back”, I’m better at using them. I won’t back away from learning English and I won’t back out of my words.

Friday, September 11th 2015

Saturday, September 12th 2015

Thanks for your eplanation.Phrasals are really difficult to learn.I have to try many times in order to use them properly.Is it right to use phrasals in formal speaking or writing?

Saturday, September 12th 2015

    Hi Leonie,

    Yes, phrasal verbs are part of all levels of spoken and written English. They are not slang (though, of course, some are).

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

useful lesson. Thanks Adam, but I can not remember exactly the use of all phrasal verbs.

Saturday, September 12th 2015

    Hi Chau,

    They are like vocabulary; the more you use them, the more you’ll remember.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

      absolutely right

Sunday, September 13th 2015

Hi Adam.

So many phrasal verbs, how to catch UP with native speakers?
Memorize all of them ; quit an impossible task.

Trainers, please, carry ON learning them us.
The more we hear phrasal verbs (in their context), the more we become used to figure OUT all these particles additions.

Thanks to back us UP !

Sunday, September 13th 2015

i have got 6 of 10 :D

Sunday, September 13th 2015

Just have started reviewing my English. 8 out of 10, so far so good. Never back down)

Sunday, September 13th 2015

Everyone needs someone to back him up during his learning process. Thank you very much!

Monday, September 14th 2015

Adam: I don’t understand your lesson, it’s some confuse, can you make a new lesson with other examples? Please! you will make me really happy! please!

Monday, September 14th 2015

    Hi Sharait,

    I probably won’t make another lesson about this topic as there are so many others, but you can ask me questions about things you didn’t understand here. :)

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Thank you so much dear Adam!! it was very helpful for me too. We have to know more about phrasal verbs because people from different nations can understand hardly the meaning of phrasal verbs and it is more complicated to translate these ones than the simple words. YOUR WORK IS EXCELLENT!!THANK YOU

Monday, September 14th 2015

thanks a lot

Monday, September 14th 2015

Thank you Adam!

Monday, September 14th 2015

Thanks a lot! I will continue to hear your lessons/

Monday, September 14th 2015

Thanks youu!!

Monday, September 14th 2015

Thanks!!!!I never know the right term to use , will whatch the lesson again next week!!!

Tuesday, September 15th 2015

Hey Adam so basically, “back in” is never use, we just have to use back into for everything right?!!

Tuesday, September 15th 2015

    Hi Yoshius,

    Think of back in as the action (how), and back into as the direction (where).

    How will you get the car into the garage? I will back in (i.e. not drive forward but backward).

    Where will you park the car? I will back it into the garage (where will I put it?)

    Does this help?

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

very useful lesson! Thank you Adam.

Tuesday, September 15th 2015

Very interesting your lesson! Thanks for help me!!!!

Tuesday, September 15th 2015

what difference between hyphen and dash

Tuesday, September 15th 2015

    Hi Chanbbsoqq,

    A brown-eyed girl (hyphen)

    From 10 – 2 (en dash)

    Bob–that was the killer’s name–was found at last. (em dash)

    There are 2 types of dash, but a hyphen is used to connect two words to make one, while a dash shows a span, or is used to interrupt the writing.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Hey Adams my name is Jorge im from Mexico. I I’d like to learn more about English why? Because i need it. Also i must speak this language because its important in my job. Just i dont like something. For example i feel that you should put more examples and also you must splain better. I wish you answer me.

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

    Hi Jorge,

    Please keep in mind that these lessons are meant to be quick looks at a topic. There are also examples in the quiz. We can’t write a whole book chapter for each lesson. However, if there is something you don’t understand, you can always ask here.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Thank you so much Adam.

Thursday, September 17th 2015

I’ll try to score better next time

Thursday, September 17th 2015

Hi, Adam. Thank you for the lesson. It was very interesting and useful.

Friday, September 18th 2015

For me, It’s not easy to memorize all phrasal verbs, but I will never back out of these lessons like this.
(I hope that my sentence could be correct!)
Thank you for this useful lesson. All the best to you, my favorite teacher Adam. :)

Friday, September 18th 2015

Saturday, September 19th 2015

wow i got 80% from the frist time i am so happy thank you adam

Saturday, September 19th 2015

Thank you Adam

Saturday, September 19th 2015

Thank you for the lesson Adam! Please tell me what does the next sentence exactly mean: ‘I will do my homework in an hour’? Does it mean that I promise to do my homework during this first hour or it can be done after the first hour? Thank you.(I think, it must be done during the hour, just after promising)

Saturday, September 19th 2015

    Hi Katrin,

    It can mean I will start to do it one hour later, OR it will take me one hour to complete it. The meaning depends on the context.

    I will do my homework in an hour and then we can go.

    I’ll just rest a bit now, and I’ll do my homework in an hour.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

      Thank you Adam! This is good.

      Monday, September 28th 2015

Thank you very much for a great lesson.

Could you please explain when “nouns become adjectives”. For example:
– sheep’s milk cheese
– performance enhancing drugs
– an apprentice magician
– a medicine man, a priest-doctor
It is unclear for me when I may use a noun, or possession, on a hyphen to make a word which describes the following noun. What happens if I put together several nouns? Will they have meaning of adjectives?

Thank you in advance.

Sunday, September 20th 2015

    Hi Nyirka,

    These are called compound nouns. When all the nouns are necessary, the last one is usually acts as the noun and the preceding ones act as adjectives. To use the hyphen, you need a compound adjective :http://www.engvid.com/learn-english-punctuation-hyphens-compound-adjectives/

    Technically, compound nouns can be long, but this should be avoided if possible.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

very good lesson thanks.

Sunday, September 20th 2015

Hey Adam!
Can you provide us with vedio on Adjective phrases, Noun and Verb Phrases.

Monday, September 21st 2015

    I’ll see what I can do Chetanverma

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Thank you Adam for this lesson. I am finding difficulty in understanding difference between Look,Seems,Sound and Feel. Can you help us in understanding the difference in your lessons.It will be a great help. Thanks.

Monday, September 21st 2015

Monday, September 21st 2015

thank you for all teachers , i have a request we need some lessons about american schools or high school , vocabulary for example classes , labs , gruads or marks the tests , the lockers ,all these things thank you

Tuesday, September 22nd 2015

    Good idea Soso. I’ll see what I can do for you :)

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

Hi Adam! I’ve got one more question(by the way – A question or without ‘A’ in this case).
Question:
1 There (IS,ARE) an old man and hares in the boat.
2 There (IS,ARE) hares and an old man in the boat.
(if it is not too difficult, explain me that please)
Thank you.

Tuesday, September 22nd 2015

There (ARE,IS) one table, two chairs and a divan in my room.

Tuesday, September 22nd 2015

    Technically, the subject takes the verb and in these examples, ‘there’ is not the subject. old man and hares is the compound subject taking the verb are.

    an old man and hares are in the boat
    hares and an old man are in the boat
    one table, two chairs and a divan are in my room.

    It might sound strange to use there are one table…, but it’s actually correct.

    That being said, good writing usually avoids starting sentences with there is /are anyway.

    Does this help?

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

      Adam, this from a textbook for kids and there’s one strange rule in that book, I read a couple of days ago:
      you must use IS or ARE depending of which noun closer to them plural or single (for instance: there is a river and lakes in my city/ there are lakes and a river in my city).
      I don’t like this and I don’t believe it (please help!)

      Monday, September 28th 2015

Adam excuse me, I have one more.
In the textbook for 5 class I found one text which called ‘Lollipop Ladies’. There is a sentence from it here.
‘Today so many children go to school by car and bus, that there isn’t as much of a need for patrols to help children cross the streets although, of course, there is still some need.’

Adam, I think there must be ‘TO’ before ‘CROSS’.
Please explain it to me! Bye!

Tuesday, September 22nd 2015

    HI Katrin,

    ‘help’ is the only verb that does require its following infinitive to use ‘to’. If you add the ‘to’, it’s ok, but you don’t need to. I hope this helps you (to) understand. :)

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

      Thank you Adam.

      Monday, September 28th 2015

Thanks so much Adam for the lesson. I currently just started learning English an I need help on Noun, verbs, pronoun, adjectives and so much more. Could you direct me.

Adam, i often heard people say sentence like “pick up the rubbish”.is it wrong?

Saturday, October 3rd 2015

    Hi Ayuvirgo,

    No, it’s ok. It’s very British :)

    In American English you’ll likely hear “pick up the trash/garbage” :)

Hi , I love the lesson

Monday, October 12th 2015

Hi Adam!Can I make a stupid question?… Are these phrasal verbs American-English or British-English too?

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    No such thing as a stupid question Anna.
    Yes, both use them ,and for the most part they are the same, but sometimes there are different ones for each. Australians also have some of their own. I can’t recall any at this moment, but I’ll get back to you on that ;)

    Thursday, October 15th 2015

Very interesting lesson (:
I want to ask you (:
Do you think studying literature will help me to become good English speaker ? If you recommend me to study literature do you think learning poetry will increase my vocabulary??

Friday, October 16th 2015

    I think any studies will improve your English either in vocabularies ,Grammar or combination of sentences .
    the more you read in English , the more you gain no matter what the field .

    I hope you understand what i mean.
    wish you best of luck .

Monday, February 1st 2016

Hello,Adam.Beforehand thanks for all your lesson.They are more useful,especially phrasal verbs.I have one dream you.Could you prepare list of phrasal verbs which you thought us them I want to learn more,but Some times I can’t find useful phrasal verbs with their explanations. Thank you,Adam beforehand :)

Thursday, February 11th 2016

    or if it is not possible,please could you recommend useful sites with list of phrasal verbs?

    Thursday, February 11th 2016

Thanks for the lesson, very informative. There is the question: “back off” it’s a bit rude, isn’t it? Is it permissible to use this expression in society?

Saturday, February 13th 2016

Sorry. I did not understand somethings. It is similar back off and back away for me. Why not? Could not anyone explain distinction. Thanks for help.

Sunday, February 14th 2016

    As I understand it, “back off” is more abrupt, even rude expression. And “back away” meaning “to step back, to retreat”. I’m not sure, but it seems to be the meaning.

    Tuesday, February 16th 2016

very useful explanation thank you

Thursday, February 18th 2016

wow. I got 9 marks. Thank you Adam. I revised thrice this video. it’s really helpful.

Hi! I would like to know the difference between “back down” and “pull out”. Their meanings are very similar, aren’t they?

Thank you Adam! :)

Saturday, April 16th 2016

    Sorry, now I’m mixing up “back out” and “pull out”! How can we tell them apart?
    Thank you!,

    Saturday, April 16th 2016

Thanks Adam… but I am really confused from back in and back into specially in quiz

Sunday, April 17th 2016

Dear Adam,
I would like to say thank you for what you do for students. Your lessons are very clear, simple and usefull.

Will be there another lessons about phrasal verb? (I have seen already 3 about get, set and back)

Thursday, April 21st 2016

There are some mistakes on the next short text. Could you find them?

In this one, Adam had explained the meaning of phrasal verbs with ‘back’. Remember, those phrasal verbs are building with a verb plus a preposition. Backup means go to backwards, it is used to express support; back away to reclaim to other people get away from any place; back down is referring to leave a debate when you are waking of your argument is most weak; back off, it’s useful when you want to say to another don’t bother me, for example, you can feel afraid when someone reach you more than you want, so you can say: ‘hey, back off’. Back in and back into, really I am not sure if I understand it, but I think those are the same meaning, and could be used in the same kind of situations for example when you need to come back and fit any space that exists for this goal. Finally, back out, it mean you have changed your mind, and you prefer a different option that you had chosen at the beginning. I tried to back up this information because I need to back away from here at the moment. If I really wrong, I will need back down, just before other said me back off, if I continue writing in a wrong way. I hope this short write can back in the expectations of the well understanding lesson. If this won’t happen, I never back out to learn. Thank you, Adam
