    That sounds like a good idea. Let me first install that program on my computer Azooom.

    Thanks for your invite.

    Sunday, April 12th 2015

      Great class on phrasal verbs Adam.

      Talking about spelling,Yep! You were right about the spelling of assaSSinate. How about the word “protege”? As far as I can tell, it comes from french, so it should be spelled out “protégé”.

      Thanks for this superb lesson Adam.

      P.S. Did I use the verb “spell out” correctly?

      Sunday, April 12th 2015

        Hi Regino,

        You’re right about the accents on protege, but some writing apps (this forum for example) do not offer the option of adding these, so it has become acceptable to write without them :)

        Tuesday, April 28th 2015

      Hi Regino! A good idea. Please can you tell me how i can install and use the program for Skype? Thanks a lot.

        Hi Katrin,

          Tuesday, April 28th 2015

          Hi Selcuk,

          The whole point of this forum is to help each other learn English. Jokes only work if everyone is laughing. If you see a negative reaction, better to let it go, not to increase the anger.

          I meant no offense, just trying to settle things down.

          Friday, May 15th 2015

          OKAY MAN ( MEANTIME, ADAM IS MAN IN TURKISH :))
          I MENT TO DO JUST SOME JOKES BUT WHEN OTHERS SAY : HE IS NOT TURKISH THIS MADE ME TOO MUCH…
          I EXPECTED THEY WOULD UNDERSTAND IT IS JUST A JOKE BUT IT IS REACTED OPPOSITELY, ALSO I DIDNT MEAN TO OFFENCE ANY BODY AT ALL,, I AM SORRY OR THAT.

          Saturday, May 16th 2015

          It’s no problem Selcuk. Sometimes misunderstandings happen, especially when there is only text and no face to see :)

          Sunday, May 31st 2015

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Thank you Adam for this great and useful lesson! Indeed, I realized that phrasal verbs are very important in English language. Could you tell me which the phrasal verb with the largest differents meanings?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards.

Friday, April 10th 2015

    There are many like these Wellington. :)

    You can look them up online and study them. For example, how many meanings does ‘turn in’ have ?

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

      Thank you teacher! You have awesome lessons and your particular website is very educational too. :)

      Wednesday, April 29th 2015

Very useful lesson, thank you Adam! I didn’t know about take after, take in, take to, take on.

I’ve found also :take aback (to surprise) take away (the British form for take out – as I understood)

Friday, April 10th 2015

    Hi Engread,

    It’s taken aback (surprised) :)

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Hi Adam,
I did know only “take-away” in place of your “take-out”. It seems that the former is used in Great Britain, whereas the latter in North America.
Right? :)

Friday, April 10th 2015

    Indeed Antonella :)

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

    Hi Kholio,

    To take means to make smaller, tighter, better fitting.

    Take to, means to like something, or to pick up the habit.

    Hope this helps.

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Thanks a lot, Adam.
We all wait for your videos.
Just the last one “take to” I didn’t got the exact meaning and I got confused when I read the last exercise ” Ann’s baby took to breastfeeding almost instantly”.
Can you give a little more about it?
Kind regards.

Saturday, April 11th 2015

    Hi Muhamad,

    Ann’s baby took to breastfeeding almost instantly.

    The baby liked it, or developed the habit almost instantly. Some babies take a long time to breastfeed and some babies never do it at all.

Saturday, April 11th 2015

Hi Adam! Thank you for the lessons, espesially for the medical one. And,also,I have a question. There are three variants:
1 My friend has(got) A not very big island.
2 My friend has(got) not A very big island.
3 My friend has(got) not very big AN island.
Which is correct?(or all three variants possible?)
Thank you Adam.

Saturday, April 11th 2015

    Adam couldn’t you publish a short list of verbs after which we have to use “TO” or must not use it before following verb.(I like TO read,I want TO play, I can swim, I help…………)
    Thank you.

    Saturday, April 11th 2015

      DONT WORRY BE HAPPYYY,, WHY YOU DONT GO TO YOUR REAL COUNTRY KATRINN ? ALSO IS THAT YOUR REAL NAME ? I DONT THINK SO :)

        We’re all here to help each other Selcuk. No need to be mean

        Tuesday, April 28th 2015

          ADAM, WHAT DID YOU MEAN BY : NO NEED TO BE MEAN ? YOU MENT : I AM IMMORTAL OR CHEESY ?

          I WAIT YOU TO EXPLAIN IT

          Tuesday, April 28th 2015

          ‘To be mean’ means to be ‘not nice’.

          This site is about English only.

          Friday, May 15th 2015

    Hi Katrin,

    Number 1 is the only correct one, though it can be better written as ” My friend has an island that’s not very big.”

    As for the next question in the next comment:
    http://www.engvid.com/english-resource/verbs-followed-by-gerunds-and-infinitives/

Hello Adam from Thailand.

If you have some time. I would like to study English. About ! Okay. I interested in the words of native speakers when they say with their boyfriends or girlfriends (informal language). I would like to know, when they are boring, angry or want to stop the relationship with their girl/boyfriends. How native speaker say ?? If in Thailand, we say ” we should keep our distance ” yes, I don’t know Is my sentence make sense in English or not ? Haha !!!

Another sentences such as ” You are better for me., so we should give up our relation. Or I think, we can not mix. (It means we are more different, I can not understand you, you can not understand me.)

Or please give me what reason in English when people use for giving up relationship with someone
Or How will they say ?
Thank you.

Saturday, April 11th 2015

    Hi Haridan,

    There are many expressions, so this might make a good lesson :)

    As for your examples:

    We should time some time for ourselves.
    You are too good for me. I don’t deserve you. You should find someone better.

    Hope this helps a little :)

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

I prefer taking out food from my oven, than a take out from McDonalds! heheh!

Anyway I have to practice more to take me under your wing!

Saturday, April 11th 2015

Great lesson Adam, very useful and now I hope to commit less wrongs about it.

This a very useful…admittedly..this lesson has clarified me certain doubts..Thanks a lot..

Adam, Can you please upload another lesson with phrasal verbs specifically with the word “bring” thanks in advance

Saturday, April 11th 2015

thank you a lot teacher.

Saturday, April 11th 2015

Thank you Adam, you are a great teacher!

Saturday, April 11th 2015

Very helpful!Thanks!

Saturday, April 11th 2015

Thank you, Adam. Very well structured explanations. In the lesson you gave an example for “take to (someone)”, but in the test it was used as take to (something), particularly the process of breastfeeding. It was a bit confusing to me, considering not looking it up in the dictionary right away and the meaning you provide “to have a sort of connection with that person…”. So, my question: referring to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, does it mean “to conceive a liking for”? Maybe it’s obvious, but I just want to make sure I understand that correctly. Which baby doesn’t like it? :)

Saturday, April 11th 2015

    Hi Haliota,

    Yes, you are correct. You can take a liking to someone or something. It means to like or to develop a habit.

    You’d be surprised how many babies don’t like breastfeeding. They are given baby formula instead. :)

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Ann’s baby took ________ breastfeeding almost instantly.

What about this ? Can someone help me :)?

Sunday, April 12th 2015

    took to – it means to start doing something
    Baby took to breastfeeding- began to eat

    Thursday, April 16th 2015

    Hi Hitjones,

    Vasil gave a good answer, but here’s a little more:

    Ann’s baby took to breastfeeding almost instantly.

    The baby liked it, or developed the habit almost instantly. Some babies take a long time to breastfeed and some babies never do it at all.

    Hope this helps

hello dear teachers, i am from china, i can’t see your videos as youtube is banned in china. is there any other ways that i can see your video teaching, thanks.

Monday, April 13th 2015

    I’m very sorry — you’ll have to use a VPN, or see if anyone has mirrored our videos on a Chinese video site.

    Monday, April 13th 2015

      ok, I’ll try to use a VPN; i watched a few of courses when i was abroad and they are really great. Btw are these videos available for downloading, maybe i can download these courses and post them in china video site so that billions of chinese english learners can learn from you wonderful guys.

Monday, April 13th 2015

Hi Adam, Thanks for your lessons, it’s totally useful. Especially the phrasal verbs’ ones. I’m currently working in London to improve my English and my collegues often use verbs like pick, drop or push. Would it be possible to do a lesson for each of this verb ? Again, thanks a lot ! Nico

    Hi Nico,

    I’ll see what I can do :)

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Thanks a lot. Adam… very useful

Monday, April 13th 2015

Phrasal verbs are kind of difficult. But when the teacher (Adam) explains them. they seems easy.

Monday, April 13th 2015

really helpful!!!

Monday, April 13th 2015

Thank you, Adam! I’m happy, I’ve got 8 of 10!!!

Monday, April 13th 2015

Great session teacher, I find them very useful. If someone wants to speak with me in English I will be very grateful.

Monday, April 13th 2015

My flag is brithish but I am Spanish. I can change your English for my Spanish

Monday, April 13th 2015

First of all, I am going to ask you a lot of questions (sorry about that) which confuse me all the time.

I’m basically focusing more on writing than speaking. So most of my questions will be about that.

1. In the last sentence I have written, Do I need to put comma after so (this confuses me many times as it is the most common transition word)?

2. If I write two questions which are separated by the conjunction or, do I need to invert the word order to question or do I have to use embedded question word order after or?

This is exactly what I have just done unintentionally (putting two questions using or).

3. In the last two questions, I have used question word order after the introductory clause and if clause. Is this right? Can I use question word order after comma?

4. Which noun form should be followed by any (singular or plural)?

Lastly, could you please tell me if I have made any grammar mistakes above?

Thanks Adam. You are awesome.

    Hi Mkb,

    I’m basically focusing more on writing than speaking. So most of my questions will be about that.

    1. In the last sentence I have written, do I need to put comma after so?

    You need to put a comma before so, not a period. This is a coordinating conjunction.

    2. If I write two questions which are separated by the conjunction or, do I need to invert the word order to question or do I have to use embedded question word order after or?

    You wrote this question correctly. The important thing about coordinating conjunctions is to have parallel structures on either side of the conjunction: do I need to or do I need to…? Should I do A or can I get away with B?

    3. In the last two questions, I have used question word order after the introductory clause and if clause. Is this right? Can I use question word order after comma?

    Yes and yes :) The question is the independent clause.

    4. Which noun form should be followed by any (singular or plural)? both are possible:
    If there are any questions on the test you’re not sure about, ask for clarification.
    If you are unsure about any word(s) in the text, look it/them up.

    Lastly, could you please tell me if I have made any grammar mistakes above?
    Nope (one capital D, but I’ll take it as a typo;) )

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Dear Adam,

Thank you your lesson and your explanations. Your lessons are the best useful for me. However I agree with Haliota’s comment. Please write more about phrase of “Take to”. (Dear Haloita, I am violin artist and I would like to know you, because you could help me in my profession and vice versa.)

Monday, April 13th 2015

    Hi Vidam, basicaly my background is in visual arts.
    I’m afraid that Music is not my area of expertise, although my child plays 2 musical instruments. If you are looking for the musical terminology in English, I’m not the right person to ask. But if you have any general related questions feel free to ask and I will see if I’m capable to help you out.

    Tuesday, April 14th 2015

    Hi Vidamzenesz,

    Ann’s baby took to breastfeeding almost instantly.

    The baby liked it, or developed the habit almost instantly. Some babies take a long time to breastfeed and some babies never do it at all.

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Thanks, Adam.
But I have a question.
‘I failed in history.’
‘I failed history.’
Are both of them correct? If yes, what is the difference between these two sentences?

Tuesday, April 14th 2015

    Get one more question. Sorry.
    ‘fail the exam’ and ‘fail in the exam’
    Which one is correct?
    Thanks.

    Tuesday, April 14th 2015

    Hi Sophie,

    Technically, “I failed in History.” is correct, as you are talking about the subject. But many students say I failed history, meaning history class.

    I failed the exam is correct.

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Great lesson, Adam! You are a great teacher. I have a request. Could you create a lesson about phrasal verbs with verb SET, please? Thank you very much!

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

7/10 what is yours best way do remember all of phrasal verbs ?

Wednesday, April 15th 2015

    Hi Junior,

    The best way is to use them as often as you have a chance to.

    You can also write sentences using them and hopefully get someone to check these for you.

    :)

What is the difference between no sooner than and as soon as :D

Saturday, April 18th 2015

    Hi Zand,

    They’re almost the same.

    No sooner than means right after something. as soon as means at the same time, but essentially, they are used in the same way to mean the same thing.

8/10 a little diffucult

Saturday, April 25th 2015

thank mr adam i got ninety percent i cannot answer the last question right

Saturday, April 25th 2015

Hi Adam. I find your phrasal verbs lessons quite mild and user friendly ;) You pick 1-2 meanings for each, whereas one can find loads of meanings for some of them in dictionaries. Moreover, there’s the declaration you made the other day, that your phrasal verbs lessons series will soon be finished. A mysterious thing.

Anyway, there is something else I’d like to take up with you. It concerns expressions built of nouns, like:

“tenses usage explanation”,

“the design and the implementation of the automatic mode of the processing of the clients requests”,

“phrasal verbs lessons series”.

Any time I have to use an expression like that, especially in writing, I feel uncertain. The doubts come in 3 categories:

1. When to use the version with “of”, when not? Which forms are better, the above or:

“the explanation of the usage of tenses”,
“clients requests processing automatic mode design and implementation”,
“the series of lessons of phrasal verbs”

or maybe some “mixed” versions would be optimal?

2. When is it possible or desirable to use a gerund instead of a regular noun, e.g. “the design and implementing of the automatic mode …”, “explanation of using of tenses”?

3. How to use articles in such expressions? Can some be omitted for the sake of style?

Would it be possible to put any rules or tips on this subject?
Thanks for the lesson.

Saturday, April 25th 2015

    Hi Tomek,

    When it comes to compound nouns, remember that the first in the series act as adjectives.

    tense usage explanation– what type of explanation? tense usage

    If you can use ‘of’ then there must be an apostrophe (‘) if you omit the of.

    client requests’ processing

    The gerund is the activity. If you want to talk about the concept, use the regular noun if one is available.
    The design and implementation of A takes years to master. (the idea of this)

    He is responsible for the designing and implementing of A. (for doing this)

    Articles cannot be omitted if they are required.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

      It definitely helped, thank you.
      However, what about following example: “input validation”? For me, it means exactly the same as “validation of input” and I would never write “input’s validation”. Am I wrong?
      I would also like to ask directly about long chains like “something of something of…”. I put an example of that in the first comment. Are such chains ok or you would suggest rearranging them somehow?

      Wednesday, May 13th 2015

        Well, when you get to technical writing, it’s a little difficult to avoid these chains because they use jargon. This is why most people hate reading technical stuff. If you can avoid it, do so.

        As for input validation, here you have a compound noun where the first noun acts as an adjective to the second. In this case, the possessive is generally understood (liver transplant = transplant of the liver). When you start adding words (nouns) then eventually you need to add the apostrophe to indicate which noun the possessive belongs to.

        Friday, May 15th 2015

          Thanks for a quality response, I appreciate it.

          Saturday, May 16th 2015

Great job. :D Thank you for the great lesson. I’m looking forward to more lesson on phrasal verbs.

Saturday, April 25th 2015

Thank you, I enjoyed the lesson.

Sunday, April 26th 2015

Hello,
Mr.Adam
I would like to ask you for something!
Could you please make a video what is the diffrences btween TOEFL and ILETS, I’m really so confused which of these should I do it.
I’m going to to master and the university need one of these exams, but I really don’t know which one should I do!
coould you please help me for that?
Thank you very much .

Sunday, April 26th 2015

    Hi Emy,

    Actually, Rebecca made a lesson about this already:

    http://www.engvid.com/toefl-or-ielts-which-exam-should-you-take/

    Hope this helps you a little :)

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

      To be honest and I’m really sorry to say that! I can understand you and some of the other teachers very well, but I don’t unerdstand teacher Rebecca very well! I know it’s my mistake and I know I need to practise more to understand all the kind of accent!
      Now what I felt from your vedios and other teacher vedios that is ILETS exam is more suitable for me. Im just following your vedios and teacher Emma’s vedios to be better.
      The last request is I have problem with (s,’s or s’) could you please do lesson for that?
      Thank you very much

      Thursday, April 30th 2015

        I’ll get on it Emy :)

        One important note to keep in mind if you are going to do the IELTS: spelling counts on IELTS because it a handwritten test. ;)

        Friday, May 15th 2015

Hi Adam, firstly I would like to thank you for your great lesson on phrasal verbs. I’ve really learned so many things by watching your videos. I would like you to do a lesson on I’m afraid VS I’m sorry. Thank you very much and wish you all the very best to continue your good work.

    Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Hi adam , is it right to say “I suggest to watch it. ” or is it better to say “I suggest that you watch it. ” ???

Monday, April 27th 2015

I got 7/10 :D , Thank you Adam for all the lessions,my English is going to take off

Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Hi Adam.
This lesson is very interesting.
But I thing you did talk about one meaning of the expression “take off” which is “to remove”.
For example if I say : I take off my shoes or my clothes.
Best wishes.

Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Hi Katrin,

All Ok. :)

Tuesday, April 28th 2015

    Thank you Adam. And for an advice,too.

    Thursday, April 30th 2015

Great lesson!

Tuesday, April 28th 2015

This was very helpful for me! Thank you

Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Hi Adam.
This lesson is very interesting.
But I thing you didn’t talk about one meaning of the expression “take off” which is “to remove”.
For example if I say : I take off my shoes or my clothes.
Best wishes

Wednesday, April 29th 2015

Thank you so much Mr.Adam for the nice lesson. Your teaching make me too easy to understand the meaning, differ from my old teacher who tell me to remember only.

Wednesday, April 29th 2015

Hi ,
what is the best sentence to use : Today I went to school or today I have gone to school . Because I haven’t already figured out the difference between the past simple and the present perfect when there aren’t any yet , already , lately ( which are used with the present perfect ) or the time of the action isn’t said like yesterday , last week ( which are used with the past simple )
Thank you ;)

Wednesday, April 29th 2015

    Hi Berne,

    I would say Today I went to school. It is an understood past time because you are not at school now and ‘today’ is not that long, so it’s almost a definite past time.

    Does this help?

    Friday, May 15th 2015

Hi Adam thanks for lesson. I have a question what is the different between struggle over and struggle against? Example struggle over racism or struggle against racism which is correct?

Wednesday, April 29th 2015

    Hi Cerenacar,

    Actually they are both correct. The struggle over is the fight (noun) about something. Struggle with is to fight (verb) against something.

    African-Americans’ struggle over equality has been going on for decades.

    African-Americans struggle with racism every day.

    Does this help?

    Friday, May 15th 2015

Oh gosh,phrasal verbs drive me crazy!

Wednesday, April 29th 2015

Great teaching. I sometimes find it difficult to translate on my own without a native speaker’s help. If possible help me to edit-proof my translation.

Thursday, April 30th 2015

Thanks for the lesson! I’ve learned a lot. I got 10/10 :)

Thursday, April 30th 2015

Thank you for answer and assistance me know about the expressions.

Thursday, April 30th 2015

Thank you so much Adam. It’s very pleasant to come in your classes. Now, i’ve got a question: What are the correct expressions?:”I take the problem on” or “I take on the problem” and “I take my class notes down” or “I take down my class notes”.

Thursday, April 30th 2015

    Hi Santiago,

    In these examples, both ways are acceptable. There are some phrasal verbs in which the noun must come between the verb and preposition.

    In most cases it’s a matter of what is more comfortable. Also, in some cases the difference is emphasis.

    I take on the problem- focus on problem
    I take the problem on-focus on take on

    Does this help?

    Friday, May 15th 2015

hi,Adam!I,m an english teacher.I teach english in a small village.WEhave
Hi!Thank you very much.You speak so clearly that I

Hi, Adam
I really appreciate your valuable lessons and commitment to them. I would like to let you know your lessons have a strong power to make us get motivation for studying English even harder. Thank you once more.

Based on this lesson, I have made some sentences and I want to share them with Envid friends and you.

1. take out

– Please pay particularly close attention to the food in the oven. You should take it out in 5 minutes.
– He was charged with taking out a couple of innocent people.

2. Take in
– This skirt I bought yesterday doesn’t fit well. It would be better to take it in.
– I saw a poor dog on the way home yesterday and really wanted to take in the dog, but I couldn’t. Because I have an allergy to dogs.

3. Take over
– I am going to take over his role and responsibility temporarily during his absence.
– The CEO is persuaded to take over the company we visited last month.
4. Take up
– Before taking some pictures, we should take up some space to set up our camera.
– I am considering taking up yoga for my health.
– When I had some problems, I used to take up with him.
5. Take after
– Even thought he looks like a Casanova, he takes after Mahatma Gandhi.
6. Take back
– I consider taking back my promise I gave to him.
7. Take off
– His new store is taking off as soon as an opening ceremony is done.
– I love the moment when a plane is taking off.
8. Take on

9. Take down

– Please, take down this sentence.
10. Take to

Thanks …9 of 10 ;)

Sunday, June 28th 2015

Hi Adam,

I have a question. At this part of The Beatles’ song what is the meaning of take out?
You said that it may refer to food (to go / your e.g: mcdonald’s food). You also mentioned its literal meaning, in other words, to take something out of somewhere (your e.g: turkey). And lastly, you said it may be used as a slang (to assassinate).

If you don’t take her out tonight,
She’s gonna change her mind,
(She’s gonna change her mind)
And I will take her out tonight,
And I will treat her kind.
(I’m gonna treat her kind)

According to your explanations and definitions, I could not find the appropriate meaning. Does it have to do with invitation?

Best wishes,
Fernando

Monday, June 29th 2015

    You’re right, there is another meaning — to take someone out on a date.

    Thursday, July 2nd 2015

Hello Adam. There is a song. And lyrics goes like can you take me over can you take me lower. What d’u think it means. Can you explain in other words. Thanks in advance.

Friday, July 17th 2015

Hi, I’m always thankful to your great lectures.
After I saw this video and took quiz, I have a few questions about them.
I didn’t catch on quiz #6, 10 sentences’ meaning.
You said ‘take someone out’ meant ‘kill someone’.
You meant ‘Jack wants to kill Cindy ON A DATE’???????????
I was a little confused.
And in quiz #10, ‘Ann’s baby took to breastfeeding almost instantly.’
I can’t understand the meaning of this sentence.
Looking forward to hearing from Adam or anyone who can answer to my questions…
;(

Friday, July 17th 2015

    Actually in this context, the phrase was used in literal meaning: to take sth out of someplace.
    So, sometimes it might have discrepancies and you need to distinguish them by the context.

    Monday, September 28th 2015

You’re amazing, thank you.

Friday, July 17th 2015

does it depend of its name?

Saturday, July 18th 2015

Monday, July 20th 2015

Hi Adam!
I’m new to this great community and let me just tell you that you do a great job as a teacher and I really appreciate all the effort :)
I learned English back when I was at school but almost five years later I feel like my English has gotten really rusty. I was hoping you could give me some advice on how to get back on track since I’m planning on taking the IELTS exam next month and I don’t feel as confident anymore.
Thank you so much for all the great videos and I hope to hear from you soon :)

Monday, July 20th 2015

Hi Adam,
Not bad not bad. I see that you have got a vocation for teaching. In Russia your lessons are very popular.
