    Great lesson, Thanks Adam, when looking it up in the dictionary I sometimes confuse with their using way and can’t remember all but until today, I was cleared. I am looking forward to waiting your continuous phrasal verbs.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    Hi Muhammad,

    Thank you :)

    Speaking improvement is just a matter of practice. You can write out sentences to make sure you remember new vocab, but speaking is just practice. Try to find someone to practice with.

    I’m afraid these videos aren’t downloadable, but you can come back here anytime to view them.

    Good luck :)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      really really thanks Adam.

      Saturday, January 31st 2015

      this video can be downloaded by means for plug-in browser.

      Monday, February 1st 2016

    you can download Adam`s lessons from YouTube

    Friday, August 21st 2015

    I’ve always found a good way to better remember new voc .
    I simply made several sheet on excel. One for each category ( E.g.: Phrasal verbs ; Business; Tourism). Every time I learn a new voc, I usually write it down on excel.
    My sheet structure is the following:
    1- English noun

    2- Traduction in your language (It could be omitted)

    3- Example

    I usually insert a comment on each noun with the noun’s meaning.
    E.g: “Look through” means to check carefully for details.

    It is my personal way to go over what I learned over the years and refresh my memory. Hope to be helpful. Bye

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    I am confused whether “look after” is reserved only for living things.

    Tuesday, January 13th 2015

      That is a good question. But it seems that can be used for inanimate things, too.

      Tuesday, January 13th 2015

        Thanks for help!

        Saturday, January 17th 2015

      Hello, no it’s not. You can also say:

      I’m an accountant. I look after money.

      I look after the money in our family.

      Wednesday, January 14th 2015

        Thank you teacher David.

        Saturday, January 17th 2015

        Good example David :)

        Friday, January 30th 2015

      Hi Prakhar,

      I can ask a friend to look after my car while I’m away. This generally means I will give it to him while I’m gone.

      Friday, January 30th 2015

    Hi Nouf,

    They’re good sentences, but sometimes it’s better to think about context; for example, I always look over my house one more time before I go away. This suggests you look at everything to make sure it’s all ok.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

i’ve got 8 out of 10.Useful lesson.Thanks Adam

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Phrasal verbs are rough to deal with all the time.I think making them a little bit fun maybe could be more efficient.Thank you

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    I’m sad to say Kami, that this is about as fun as phrasal verbs can be in a short video. In a classroom, I could do more ;)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Very useful lesson, Adam. Thanks.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

thanks for the lesson. I will try to improve on this aspect of learning :)

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

So any ideas about how I could improve my English. to be honest with you I spend years trying to speak this language clearly and properly, but still yet I can’t do it. plz help

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Thanks! But there is other one – “look forward to”
I always look forward to your lecture.)

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    Thanks Vovchick :)

    I figured most people already knew that one from letters and such. Good point, though.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Thanks Adam, I got one mistake, I guess I must study more to understand the full meaning of the “look in on” phrasal verb.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

It’s amazing.
I’ve got 10 of 10.
Thanks Adam.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Thanks a lot for your efforts . I really got benefit from it and I got 8 from ten .
I always look up for new vocabulary in the dictionary .I really hate people who look down on other people and I look up my parents .
May you look through my sentences If there any grammatical mistakes .

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    Hi Scarlet,

    You look up to your parents.

    I’m sure they’re proud :)

Good lesson, Hi everybody I’m looking for people for practice on skype if u are interested u can click my profile for add me on skype, as u know one of the best way for be fluent is just practice so much speaking.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Professor Adam, I got 10 out of 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I didn’t write my own sentences what I’m used to doing before taking the quiz.

Thanks a lot.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    Why my comment is awaiting, It’s forbidden invite people for get a conversation?

    Tuesday, January 13th 2015

      No worries Marco. Just safe practice. We see you now :)

      Friday, January 30th 2015

Adam, is it true that there’s a phrasal verb
for each verb like; ( on a plane)

Please extlinguish your cigarette.
Please put out your cigarette.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    Hi Sonia,

    I’m not sure I understood the question. Do you mean if there is a phrasal for every verb? In that case no, but there are many. Put out = extinguish, yes.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      Now I’m confused, but now about the phrasal verb
      thing but about EACH and EVERY.

      I said “for each verb” and you very politely said

      ” for every verb”.

      What’s the correct word here? Should I have
      said “for all verbs”
      Before writing to you I took a good look in
      all lessons but I didn’t get one specifically
      for this words.

      See, I said All lessons because now I want to
      say All= each and every.

      I want to learn how to use these words!!!!!

      Sunday, February 1st 2015

Thank you Adam for This Lesson.
Could you tell me what i can do to improve my English speaking?
please answer me because i asked this question to some other Teachers and they did not answer me.
I’m waiting your reply Adam :)

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    I asked the same question a lot of time, but unfortunately no one answered me.

    Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    You must watch TV and you must speak with friends in English. I m doing so and improve my speaking skills

    Wednesday, January 14th 2015

    Hi ChadchoudZ,

    You need to practice as much as possible. I know you have heard this many times, but that is the only thing. One way you can practice if you can’t find a partner is to record yourself speaking then listen to the recording for mistakes and such.
    Or, you can ask others here on Engvid if they would like to join you for a conversation on Skye. There are many people here who would be happy to.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Could you give me some advices to speak like a Native Speakers please??

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Great lesson Adam!!! So much thanks

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

What a nice lesson teacher Adam! Thanks a lot for making phrasal verb videos. I can catch every single word you say, I wish I could pronounce as good as you. I’ve got a question just to make sure about one of the meanings of “look up to”, can it be a synonym for “admire”? Can it be used the same way as the word “admire” is? That would help me a lot teacher Adam, thanks beforehand. Best regards from Bolivia!
P.S.: on the minute 4:25 of your video, do you say the word “clues” or “clothes”? I think you said “clues” but on the subtitles it’s written “clothes”. I think it’s a small mistake ^^

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    I also heard clues and i’m almost sure that there is a mistake in the subtitles.
    It’s really a very nice lesson, Adam, thank you very much.

    Wednesday, January 14th 2015

    Hi EngBad :)

    Yes, look up to can mean admire and used in the same way.

    And you’re right, the word I said is clues. I guess it’s a mistake. Good ears :)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Hi Adam, thanks. Just one question, look in on is like to be an inspector or someone who controls things?
Thanks

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    Hi Betcheva,

    Look in on is more like a neighbour who looks in on your house while you’re gone to make sure nothing has happened to it.
    An inspector or controller would look over your books to make sure it’s all in order.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Hey!. I got 9 correct out of 10!. You’re the best professor. I really like how you teach. Thanks!!

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Hello teacher Adam! :) This is the first time I watch your video! It’s great! I’m sure your videos will help me a lot! Thank you!!!

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    Welcome Poliana :)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

I am very greatful of these teachers who have been recording for those videos for us.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Hi Adam, Thanks so much! Your lessons are very helpful!!!
I do not know if you already gave this information…
I really need to know if I can write with hand letter on write test in IELTS. Because in Brazil is common handwriting, and I wrote all my life like this. I will lost my speed if I will try to write different.
Can I use hand letter on IELTS write test?
Thanks so much!!!
Edilene Gama.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

    Hi Edilene,

    The IELTS is a pen and paper test, so yes you will be writing by hand. Now, if you mean scriptive writing (as opposed to printing, that is OK. The important thing is that the graders can easily read what you wrote. If they can’t read it easily, they won’t try very hard and you may lose points. Just make sure it’s neat.
    Good luck :)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Great Adam, thanks.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

Thanks Adam! If you write a sentence about to every phrasel verbs it will be this excellently.

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

    Hi Yunisli,

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

    My pleasure Bahar. Just watch it again. It will be easier with time. :)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

liked it really .

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

Adam, i have a question on “look upon” that i met in the text: “He was looked upon as an original”. It has a meaning “to consider”, is it right?

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

    Hello Neleh .. Nice to See that You are an english learner like me .. Also open minded Person :) .. If you interested in practicing English Conversation In order to the Development of Conversation Skills .. It will Be so helpful .. and a great chance For knowing A New friend Also .

    Thursday, January 22nd 2015

    Hi Neleh,

    Yes, it does mean considered, thought of, or seen as.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Thanks Adam Great Lesson! For me the most difficult Look in on.

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

Thanks a lot! But might I ask you a question about translation? You said “Look over” means a “Quick check”,or just Check, but, in some dictionaries ( including LinguaLeo site ) I found out another meaning for this phrase. It is “Scrutinize”.Is it matter? Because I know that these two meanings are completely different. “Scrutinize” more matches to “Look through” and not to “Look over” I think

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

    I think SCRUTINY just means TO LOOK or TO GAZE.

    Sunday, January 25th 2015

      Close enough! The verb form is scrutinize and it means to look at closely. “She scrutinized the doorknob, looking for fingerprints.” Scrutiny is the noun form: “Travellers bringing a lot of money into the country are subject to increased scrutiny.”

      Monday, January 26th 2015

    Hi Alexander,

    You’re right, the difference is enough to be taken seriously. But think about the prepositions: over, means moving above something. Through means in and out of. So the latter is more like scrutinize.

    No disrespect to the dictionary you used, but you should try to use an English to English dictionary, especially an American or British one.
    http://www.m-w.com
    http://www.oxforddictionaries.com

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      “Auditors scrutinize accounting records” – another example of using “scrutinize” that I learned at college.

      Monday, April 6th 2015

I got 10!!
thanks for this wonderful lesson!

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

A very interesting lesson, thanks!

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

thank you for lesson! Who want to practice you are welcome my skype is student6003

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

Excellent explanation as ever!!! Thank you.
You are a great Teacher.

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

Hi Adam, was a good explanation and easy comprehension. You teach pretty well

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

Hi Adam, thank you so much for this lesson, it helped me a lot.
I have a question. About an hour ago I saw a video in youtube where one boy decides to scare his cat. He put a mask and walked into the room where the cat was. Then he said ‘That was a good try but she DON’T care.’
I thought we use ‘doesn’t’ for he/she/it. Then why did he say ‘She don’t’?

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

    You’re right, “doesn’t” is correct. But in informal English people often use “don’t”, e. g. in the famous song “It Don’t Mean A Thing”.

    For some reason, though, nobody ever says (for example) “we doesn’t” instead of “we don’t”.

    Wednesday, January 14th 2015

    Hi Annie,

    This is actually pretty common in the US. It’s bad English, but unfortunately, it happens a lot. Don’t learn from it ;)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

adamsın yemin ediyorum

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

Adam, I like to write donw whatever is in the blakboard during your explanation. can you please write the things in one side and speak from the other side. Thanks I will apreciate it. Great lesson!

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

    Hi Rouser,

    There is limited space in the video frame. Better to pause the video every once in a while and write things down while I’m at the side.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Excellent method for teaching! I will recommend this page to my friends!

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

i’ve gotten 6/10, i have to watch more carefully the video again :)

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

Thanks Teacher!
I enjoy your videos.
p/s:
Could you make a video about the different between before, beforehand and in advance, please?
….
I’m sorry, I don’t know where I can send the questions for, so I post it here

Thursday, January 15th 2015

    Thanks Thanhtung. I’ll see what I can do :)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

It’s amazing.Thanks for shedding more light on how to use phrasal verbs.I got 8/10

Thursday, January 15th 2015

I got 7 from 10 and I think it a good level for first time.

Thursday, January 15th 2015

dear adam
where can i find videos for practising English.I mean hollywood movies which are with English subtitel. I have searched frequently for it, but i did not found it still.I am a student and i have been learning English since I enter the school but we are not learning English in school well i mean i dont have someone to talk with him regulary English to practise my english. Can you help me please who can i improve my english.
Thanks a lot

Thursday, January 15th 2015

    Hi Beautiful Afghanistan,

    Youtube might have some Hollywood movies like this, but you’ll have to pay for them. Otherwise, you can try to find some movie sites or download sites that have movies fro free.
    You can also find someone in the forum here to ask to practice with you on Skype.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Thank you Adam.

Thursday, January 15th 2015

Thank you Adam.
There’s a grammar problem confuse me often.
“work from home” in this term why we use ‘from’?

Thursday, January 15th 2015

    Hi Sophie,

    Generally, it’s because you still communicate or work with colleagues outside, so your input comes from your home (PC, phone, etc.). If you work at home, you are likely self-employed.

    Does this help?

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      It’s still a bit confusing.
      Could you explain more or in another way, please?
      Thank you so much. :)

      Sunday, February 1st 2015

        hmmm…

        basically, you work for a company, but instead of going to the office, you stay home. But the work still needs to arrive on your boss’ desk. it arrives from your home. That is why you are working from home, even though you are at home.

        Is this easier?

        Sunday, February 15th 2015

          Thanks. Adam. So ‘work at home’ and ‘work from home’ have the same meaning, we can use either one. Right?

          Monday, February 16th 2015

By the way
i had the quiz before i take the class that’s why i got 5 of 10

Friday, January 16th 2015

Great English teacher!

Friday, January 16th 2015

That really useful in life. Now it is understood for me . I really thank you Adam for a good explaining method which you use . I did the quiz , I get 9 correct answer of 10 . Here is big thank for you Adam
All best

Friday, January 16th 2015

hi i need to download this lesson but i can is there any one can help me?

Friday, January 16th 2015

    Hi Javad,

    I’m afriad these lessons aren’t for downloading, only for viewing online. have you tried the youtube version?

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Hi, Adam!
Thanks for the lesson. It was very useful)) I got 9 out of 10 :) But I’ve got a question: what tense should we use after the expression “look as if/though”? Can we use any tense depending on the context?

Friday, January 16th 2015

    Hi English Student,

    It depends on the context:

    It looks as though he will finish last.
    It looked as if he were a mermaid.

    In the first, we’re looking at a race and predicting the future. In the second we are talking about a past scene.

    Hope this helps.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      Thank you very much! That is exactly what I wanted to know :)

      Wednesday, February 4th 2015

Hi, Adam! I really like the way you teach! Make me feel my English is looking up! Thanks a lot

Friday, January 16th 2015

10 out of 10.
I so loved this lesson. Ans I so love phrasal verbs.
I hear them on TV shows all the time, and when I know what they mean, I grin from ear to ear. :D

But, I feel like I have a lot more to learn, and look through some I learned in the past.

Thanks, Adam!

Saturday, January 17th 2015

      Monday, January 26th 2015

      same:
      What on earth have you been up to, man? shows a little surprise, like I haven’t seen him for a long time.

      Friday, January 30th 2015

    Hi Katrin,

    What on earth are you doing, man? = what the hell are you doing? = what are you doing? in a strong expression.
    :)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      Thank you Adam.

      Saturday, January 31st 2015

Using “UP” after verbs very confusing to me Adam. I know that one must use it after verb to mark perfect action, but at any rate it’s not just for all cases(as I can hear it).
Thank you.

Sunday, January 18th 2015

    sorry, FOR ME…

    Monday, January 19th 2015

    Not really sure what you mean here Katrin. UP is a preposition; it’s not related to perfect tenses.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Thank you very much

Monday, January 19th 2015

Very useful!

Adam, say me, please, how I must to say: I ate a lot of fruit (or fruits). Thank you.

Wednesday, January 21st 2015

    fruit if you’re speaking generally, fruits if you are describing the fact that you had many different kinds of fruit.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

15 I have crept from fear.
16 My neighbours have cut their cat.(because he had wanted outside)
17 I deal dishes in kitchen.

I think, I have written funny things. (I never heard something like those)
Thank you Adam.(of course I want you help me to say those in right way)
17

Thursday, January 22nd 2015

    1 The fish is/are biting. (both ok)
    2 Bees have stung me!
    3 My father bites firewood.- ?
    4 The mustard is biting my mouth.- ok, but uncommon
    5 That fly is blowing eggs.–? lol
    6 I broadcast the news (on tv, radio).
    7 The doctor has burned my wounds.- why?
    8 The jar has burst.
    9 He cast his teeth 10 years ago.
    10 She has cast a child. I’m sorry!-?
    11 The trees cast leaves in autumn.
    12 Elks cast their horns.
    13 He caught some bad disease.(one disease)
    14 I was falling, but I had time to cling to a branch.
    15 I have crept from fear.- need context
    16 My neighbours have cut their cat.(because he had wanted outside)-?
    17 I deal dishes in kitchen.-?

    If I put a ? it’s because I’m not sure what the sentence is trying to convey. It’s most often the verb that doesn’t make sense. Other times it’s because out of context, the sentence has no meaning.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      I must throw out my dictionary! Thank you Adam.

      Saturday, January 31st 2015

        3 My father chops firewood.
        10 She has lost a child.
        17 I distribute plates in the kithen.

        Saturday, January 31st 2015

          These are OK :)

          Sunday, February 15th 2015

Thanks a lot

Thursday, January 22nd 2015

What’s the difference between AWAKE and WAKE?
Thank you Adam.

Friday, January 23rd 2015

    Awake can be a verb and an adjective, while Wake is usually an imperative verb (usually with “up”)and can also be a noun with a completely different meaning.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Adam, I can’t understand one thing(it’s when I can use PAST SIMPLE without breaking rules). I know two things:
1 The action was complete some time ago.
2 We know how much time ago the action was complete.
(I read the book ten years ago)
BUT all the time in movies and in books I read, the sentences are in past simple and there isn’t any mention about time.
Could you give me a full answer?(if you have time). Thank you very much.

Friday, January 23rd 2015

    Keep in mind that a time reference doesn’t have to be a date or a time period. It can also be a situation:

    I met her in high school.

    High school is a time period in my life and therefore a specific time for the past simple tense.

    Does this help?

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      Yes, it does. Thank you Adam.

      Saturday, January 31st 2015

T. Adam, i have a good news for you.I got 9 out of 10,yet I would love to get your help.
Adam,how can i write compairson contrast essay and descrpitve essay? Actually, I am in advanced level in english but I am still weak in these sorts of essays and it is shameful of me. I can write both narrative and opinion essay. In any case,I would be grateful if you could make a lesson for these.I waiting your response.All the best!

Friday, January 23rd 2015

    I’ll see what can do Mohammed ;)

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      Thank you!

      Tuesday, February 3rd 2015

Adam what is it LAID BACK?
Thank you.

Sunday, January 25th 2015

    “Laid back” is an adjective that means relaxed. If someone is always calm and happy, never worried, you could say they’re “laid back”.

    Sunday, January 25th 2015

      Thank you very much, I hear it sometimes in interviews.

      Tuesday, January 27th 2015

Tuesday, January 27th 2015

Thanks Adam you are always so clear.

Wednesday, January 28th 2015

Adam,hi again. One more question. It’s from English textbook for Russian students. The question is:
choose correct word…
Where can I change Russian money FOR,ON,INTO British pounds?(there is an answer – FOR). But I believe “INTO” would be more correct. Please help me!
Thank you.

Thursday, January 29th 2015

    One more:
    Why the animals important TO,FOR people?
    (it would be great to find some lesson about that)

    Thursday, January 29th 2015

      Adam,I know the animals useful for people, but student’s book answers confuse me sometimes.

      Friday, January 30th 2015

        because answer was TO…

        Friday, January 30th 2015

          Let me know if this helps :)

          http://www.engvid.com/to-or-for/

          Friday, January 30th 2015

          I had watched that video before Adam. I have watched it again. But I’m not sure yet – is it TO or FOR. I think now it is TO.(not sure)

          Saturday, January 31st 2015

          Yesterday I watched some videos in youtube and I’m not sure even more.

          Saturday, January 31st 2015

          Animals are useful for people. Think of the idea of benefit (people find animals to be animals beneficial); in this case it’s for.

          Animals are important to people. Think of consideration (people consider that animals are important); in this case it’s to.

          Does this help?

          Sunday, February 15th 2015

    For is correct as means exchange A for B. But into is also OK, but I would then use the verb convert instead of change.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

Adam I’d like to tell you how long and in which way I have been learning English. It’s not a short story, but I’ll try to cut it short. It began few years ago. I even didn’t wanted to learn anything. I had been working and everything was fine in story for me. But one good day an awful thing happened: I was fired… For a long time I didn’t know what to do(sometimes I was really hungry). And I said to myself: I will learn English! From people I heard that the best way to learn any forein language is by hearing. One whole year I had been listening and watching English video lessons. But the result was not good.
Then I bought adapted English book for 5th form(class) students. I read it but result was not good,too.( I watched English videos and it seemed to me that I understand, but when I turned my head aside I understood that I don’t understand anything.) After that I bought a real English book that was printed in London. I was very happy. It was thick, there wasn’t any pictures. I opened it at the 2nd chapter. I began to read. I watched every word in dictionary(I didn’t write them). It was exciting. It was difficult.
But after 2 month I was able to tell one page of this book by heart and I began to understand
some sentences from English videos. It was great.
About three years past since then. And now here I am.

Thank you.(it is not true you know)
(I hope Adam you’ll improve me…)

Thursday, January 29th 2015

    Hi Katrin, this is a bit long for this forum, I’m afraid. Try editing it first to see if you can find the errors, then give it to me in smaller pieces.

    Friday, January 30th 2015

      I understand. Sorry. Thank you.

      Saturday, January 31st 2015

        This lesson was VERY important TO me!

Hi Adam can you recommend to me a good book to improve my speaking skill?

Saturday, January 31st 2015

    Hi MG,

    The whole point of speaking is to get out of the books and interact with other people. Try to find someone to speak with, then use any classroom textbook for exercises. (better yet, discuss local news, weather, etc.)

    :)

    Sunday, February 15th 2015

Hey, Adam! Thank you for that video, it’s very useful and interesting as well. I got 10 correct out of 10. To be honest, sometimes I mix up some phrasal verbs with the word “look”, I mean the meaning. Thank you for your videos, I like your speech, it’s really clear. Keep it up!

Sunday, February 1st 2015

Hi Adam. I have been studying from you for a year by now. When English becomes difficult, I just watch your video. Then English seems easy again. Thanks a lot!

Sunday, February 1st 2015

Thanks Adam! Greetings from Azerbaijan!

    Hi-hi Masha )

    Monday, September 7th 2015

Hi dear Adam thank u so much .Could you give me a way to remembering ph.v ? Thanks

Friday, February 6th 2015

    Hi Arsinr. It’s the same as remembering any new vocabulary– practice and use it often. (also, it helps to write them down and use them in sentences)

    Sunday, February 15th 2015

Adam, thank you so much for your wonderful lessons! I just came across them on the internet and couldn’t stop watching them for at least an hour, although I’ve been learning English for many years already and am quite fluent in it. If you ever are short of ideas for new lessons, could you please consider THE vs A and WHICH vs WHOSE. I’m never certain about them!

Saturday, February 7th 2015

    I’ll see what I can do Tanya :)

    Sunday, February 15th 2015

Hi Adam, correct me if I wrong, but I suppose there is mistake in subtitles, you said “clues”, not “clothes” on 4:25. Right?

Sunday, February 8th 2015

    Yes Crazy :) Good eye

    Sunday, February 15th 2015

“My mother isn’t feeling well today, so I will look _______ her on my way home.” If my mother will feel self not well, better i will “look after her” than “look it on her” ) Thx. Useful and clear lesson for me!
9 of 10

Sunday, February 8th 2015

Thanks a lot, Adam!
I have one question about the sentence in the quiz.
“Gerry has always looked _____ to Mr. Henderson as a hero.”
I’d thought that “as a hero” is about Gerry.

“smb1 doing something to smb2 as a smb3.”
The question is: is it the only meaning that smb3 points to smb2 and not to smb1?
Actually, I have no clue about the rule name to search it on-line :-( Please tell me, where to look up.

Monday, February 9th 2015

    Hi Konstantin,

    I think you’re referring to the comparative adverbial clause:

    He spoke to him as to a child.
    him being the child in this case, though it is reduced (as (he would) to a child)

    In the example I used, ‘as’ is a preposition, meaning in the position of.

    He saw him as a hero. (him= hero)

    Does this help?

    Monday, February 16th 2015

Thank you very much. It ia very useful lesson. I like your lessons about phrasal verbs. my english become better with every your lesson.

Wednesday, February 11th 2015

Friday, February 13th 2015

hello Mr. Adam, nice to have such a wonderful teaching. thanks to Engvid. i have heard Brits adding up the preposition “UP” with most of the words.. i dont really know whether it is a slang or real phrasal verbs or they make it up. could you please give me your explanation on phrasal verb that ends “Up” only..thanks do really appriciate your work. god bless

Saturday, February 14th 2015

thank you adam ,i look up to you,you are hero

Sunday, February 15th 2015

I am always looking up to you :D

Monday, February 16th 2015

Hi Adam. May I ask you a question? It’s about “take a rest” or “have a rest”. some people say that “take a rest” isn’t used. but others say that those phrases have different meanings. for example:
“have a rest – enjoy your free time, doing nothing or spending it iN whatever way you want”
“take a rest – decide to have a rest to get a new lease of life after you’ve been working hard”.
And the others say that there’s no difference.
What is the correct? Thank you.

Tuesday, February 17th 2015

Great video tip. I’ll look though it again to check out if i understood everything. Thank you! Bye

Thanks in advance :) ..

Monday, March 2nd 2015

Hi, I like your videos, thanks for them. The eternal problem of non-speakes as to phrasal verbs is the word order of a verb and a preposition. “Look through the text” or “look the text through”, “look up the word” or “look the word up” etc. Would you be so kind to explain how is correct.Thanks.

Saturday, March 7th 2015

I really like the video. Thank you so much Adam.
It would really be so great if you make a video about the phrasal verb starting from the verb “LAY”. The phrasal verbs starting from this is very confusing.

Friday, June 26th 2015

Tuesday, July 21st 2015

Hey Adam,

hope you’re keeping well. Regarding to the test, one of the questions (Gerry has always looked _____ to Mr. Henderson as a hero), i think most likely the answer is (look up to) which’s not available at the options (just to be sure if i understood properly).
Thanks so much for your time and for your massive help! i’m Learning a lot ; )

Hello, I have a question. I am confused.I have been fluctuating about the indicated sentence: “things will look up” -is it correct to be used as a future form sentence of that one: ” things are looking up”. Thanks in advance! Furthermore, I appreciate your charity! :)
