Howdy, Adam!I feel very honorable for being the first student to leave a comment. Phrasal verbs are one of the most difficult topics in English in my opinion. And when we have to memorize a huge list of them it becomes even worse. However, fortunately there are good teachers like you who make the subject more pleasant, giving examples and contextualizing them! Thank you for the excellent lesson, and carry on teaching!!

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

    Thank you Eduardo. Actually, better not try to memorize them– as you say, there are too many. Better to do a lot of reading and listening and experience them in context enough that they absorb into your vocab base naturally. It takes time, but it works ;)

    Friday, June 24th 2016

Good morning, Adam! Thank you so much for the lesson.

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Hi Adam.Thank you for this lesson

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Thank you Adam, even fun for carrying forward phrasal verbs¡¡¡¡
Or was it “on”? :-)

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Hi Adam! In doing the quiz I came out with carry through; it has the same meaning of carry off?

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

    HI Salvatore. In some cases they can be used in a similar way, yes.

    Friday, June 24th 2016

Hi Adam,
not sure about number 7
I chose ” away”

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

    I think that “on” is the right answer cause Adam gave us explanation: “Carry on” means “fool around, be silly”. Another question is why he didn’t tell us about such meaning of this phrasal verb directly in lesson…

    Thursday, June 9th 2016

      I agree with you. I made me listen again and again to the lesson to see if I missed something (wich is not a bad thing). I was happy to discover that I wasn’t the only one.

      Monday, June 13th 2016

      You’re right Idsad. I must have overlooked it. Honest mistake :)

      Saturday, June 25th 2016

    Hi Reema,

    If he got carried away it means he lost control of himself. Carry on means he played and didn’t listen to the teacher.
    :)

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Hi. Adam. I really appreciate for your nice teaching…

Thursday, June 9th 2016

    Hi Adam! Thanks for this video. I agree with Eduardo Fracan, phrasal verbs are quite dificult for me as well. But it is very important to learn all of them because they are used on daily conversations.

    Sorry I made a mistake and I sent my comment before I finish writing it.

    Thursday, June 9th 2016

      No worries :)

      Saturday, June 25th 2016

7/10 i guess that i should work hard on this topic. seemed to me a lil bit confusing.

Thursday, June 9th 2016

Hi Adam!
Thank you for some more idioms.
See you again soon!
Take care!

Thursday, June 9th 2016

Teacher, Carry each other means, help someone?

Thursday, June 9th 2016

    Hi Gil,

    It could mean literally help each other stay up (physically) or in terms of work, yes, it can be to help each other out, but more in terms of survival, that is, they couldn’t do it alone.

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Hi Adam, I have improved to much my understanding english with yours lessons…grettings from Venezuela

Thursday, June 9th 2016

thank you really very use full……

Thursday, June 9th 2016

its kind a defalcate to be honest.

Thursday, June 9th 2016

    How do you mean, Abdul?

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Hi there Adam thank you so much it was so useful for me! Carry on making lessons like this one! ✌🏼️

Thursday, June 9th 2016

Interesting but difficult lesson for me. I’ll need to see it again and again before to memorise it.
Thank you.

Friday, June 10th 2016

Hi Adam,Thank u for carrying out this lesson.You carried it off great.But you didn’t teach the means of question 6# and 7#.In question 7#,There is tip:”Carry on” means “fool around, be silly”.But i think this is a little more odd,I’m not sure for it.Can you explain it again?

Friday, June 10th 2016

    Hi Bob,

    Yes, it seems I missed that one in the lesson. When we say the children are carrying on and won’t settle down, it means they are playing and not listening to the adults.

    Carry through (#6) means to bring to a successful conclusion. I’m pretty sure I mentioned that one in the lesson.

    Hope this helps.

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

I love your lessons. :-)

Friday, June 10th 2016

it’s so cool lesson Adam thanks..

Friday, June 10th 2016

Hy Adam
I hope you are doing well
Something has confused me about how make a question form for this answer
He is the third child of the family
Could you please tell me how could we make its questions form? Is there any wh-form?

Friday, June 10th 2016

    He is third child of his family.

    Monday, June 13th 2016

    He’s the third child of his.

    Friday, June 17th 2016

    Hi Mehdi,

    I’m not completely sure what you mean, but if I meet someone with kids, I might ask “How many kids do you have?” and then “which one is he?”

    I have 4 kids, and he is the third (of the family wouldn’t be necessary in this case).

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

8/10 thank you very match adam

Friday, June 10th 2016

Thank you for information Teacher. This lesson is very enjoyful.

Friday, June 10th 2016

Hi, Adam!! Thank you for your lesson, I think too that phrasal verbs are difficult!!
I was trying to make phrases with all this “carry ph verbs”, and it carried me to a doubt. Can I use them separate into a phrase?? For example, Can I said: “Carry the tradition on”…
Thank you very much!!!

Friday, June 10th 2016

    Hi ManuBustar,

    Yes, many of these phrasals can be split up. In the example you gave we can also say carry on the tradition. In some case you can’t split phrasals, in some you can, and in some you must. The best thing to do is read a lot and you will see them used and get a “sense” for which is the correct way.

    Hope this helps.

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

thank you so much

Friday, June 10th 2016

Thank you for that great lesson. I got 7 out of 10. I still have to make progress about phrasal verbs. It’s really hard for me. Best regards and thanks a lot for your help. Marie-Claude

thank you , really it is useful more than I had before.

Saturday, June 11th 2016

Too deficlt fo me. So I’ve got only 3/10. ((

Saturday, June 11th 2016

Hello Adam ,
Thank you for this not so easy but so useful lesson .
Phrasal verbs are the things that I wonder if I can deal correctly with one day .
Wouldn’t there be tips to decipher out what meaning a phrasal verb has rather than learn them by heart ?
See you

Saturday, June 11th 2016

    I wish I could answer yes, Tsamp, but that’s the problem with phrasals– some have more than one meaning. As with any new vocab, though, try to guess the meaning from context first, then if you can’t guess, look up the word online or in a dictionary.

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

nice lesson,Sir is there any website through which we can talk to the english

Saturday, June 11th 2016

    Hi Quddus,

    If you type “English speaking online” you will find many such sites. I personally don’t know which are the good ones, but you can try a few out and see for yourself. You will likely speak to other English students, but it’s better than not practicing at all. You can also try to contact other people here on the forum.

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Thank You :) It was great!

Saturday, June 11th 2016

Thank you for your lesson. That was helpful for me.

Sunday, June 12th 2016

    Hi Faity,

    I’ll definitely do that, but I’m sure it won’t be in time for your test. A good lesson idea though.

    Good luck with the test :)

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Thanks Adam.

Sunday, June 12th 2016

Hi! Adam, it is difficult for me. I think I didn’t learn yet.

Sunday, June 12th 2016

thank you, Adam

Sunday, June 12th 2016

Hi, Adam

Thank you very much, that you gave a nice lecture in shape of idioms in order to difficult but need to practice.

thanks adam

Monday, June 13th 2016

Ty Adam!!.Gj, very helpful :))

Monday, June 13th 2016

Thanks, good lesson

Monday, June 13th 2016

Thanks Adam

Monday, June 13th 2016

it’s my first time to learn your lesson,thanks a lot.

Monday, June 13th 2016

Hi
Hope you are doing well
I would be glad if you could tell me what is the exact meaning of this sentence in English the sentence is ” was it a bad day or was it a bad five minutes that you milked all day ”
I exactly wanna know the meaning in what case do people use such this sentence and why for? Thanks in advance
I will impatiently be waitting for your answer

Tuesday, June 14th 2016

    :) This is a difficult one because you might not be familiar with the slang phrase “to milk something”.

    To milk something means to get the most out of it that you can. (think of milking a cow– you pull on the udder until you get every last drop of milk out of the cow).

    If somebody had a bad experience, but then milked it for the rest of the day just so he could have a reason to complain, then he is milking those bad 5 minutes to get the most sympathy from others that he can.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Nice lesson Adam, I’m really carrying your lessons forward my future. Just diving in!

Tuesday, June 14th 2016

Thank U!!

Tuesday, June 14th 2016

great lesson. thanks. looking for those who have an English whats app group . please add me 242068089091.

Thursday, June 16th 2016

It’s very very complicated for me

Thursday, June 16th 2016

Hi Adam thanks for your lessons. Anyway I still have doubts regarding the usage of TO CARRY THROUGH/TO CARRY OUT/TO CARRY OFF? it seems to me they have a very similar meaning: to complete, to perform …. aplay, a task, a project… can you help me to better distinguish them? thanks

Thursday, June 16th 2016

    Hi Angie,

    Yes they are similar.

    Carry through means take from start to finish successfully.
    Carry out means, basically, do
    carry off means to complete well (usually something that is difficult or that others did not think you would be able to complete well)

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Dear Adam,

I like the way you demonstrate the essay.Your tips has helped me to improve my writing .I appriciate your efforts done for students.I have been looking for a experienced teacher who can evaluate my essay and help me in making my essay better.And I believe being a your student. I can score well in my writing part.How can I connect you Sir? Please leave a message at my mailing address

you are amazing !you make me love English and because of you I will study it and carry on

Thursday, June 16th 2016

Teacher Adam,
What is the difference between these clauses and when we use them in conversation:
The dog that barks is mine.
The dog barking is mine.

Friday, June 17th 2016

    Hi Fahdbensalman,

    The dog that barks is mine.– adjective clause identifying the dog that you claim as yours.

    The dog barking is mine.– technically, this probably should be “the barking dog is mine” in which case it would be a participle adjective (which is a reduced adjective clause).

    We use both of these structures quite often. I will be giving a lesson on this fairly soon.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

      Thank you very much, Adam
      Don’t forget to mention my name on the blackboard!
      I’m kidding!

      Saturday, June 25th 2016

your lessons r very usefull. i used to have trouble with these phrasal verbs. now its much better

Saturday, June 18th 2016

Dear Lisa,
a lot of things have happened since you went to London.
We bought a new car.
My brother found a new job.
My parents went on holiday “last week”.
My sister learned/has learned how to ride a bike.(this can be both because she might still be learning as it takes time)
Our Pussy cat took part in a cat show.
It was two days ago.
She won a prize.
I have already written two letters to you.
But I haven’t heard from you yet. Write to me
soon.
Best wishes,
Olga.
Technically, all the “events” should be simple past because they are randomly listed as happening in that time period (since you left until today). The letters show two actions in that period, so they are perfect tenses since they happened over two unknown times, and still waiting to hear from you, so the action continues.

Saturday, June 18th 2016

    Adam, that’s your answer to my question that was put forward under previous video. Could you explain me, what would it mean if I said:”We HAVE bought a new car”?(Would it mean that we could sell it already? Or would it mean that we have no car yet?)
    Thank you.

    Saturday, June 18th 2016

      Sorry it’s still difficult to understand, when so many past tenses, how to make it right.

      Saturday, June 18th 2016

        Hi Katrin,

        Because you are listing events within a “known” time period, there is nothing indefinite about them, meaning you know more or less when they happened. If you say we’ve bought a new car, it doesn’t mean it’s gone, but maybe hasn’t been delivered yet. You could use the perfect for this list but you just don’t need to, so why add words?

        In the next couple of weeks I’ll be posting a lesson on the present perfect on my new YouTube channel (write to top). Hopefully that will explain some of this stuff.

        Let me know :)

        Saturday, June 25th 2016

          That’ll be great!
          Thank you.

          Sunday, June 26th 2016

HI ADAM!!…THANK YOU .I HAVE NO WORDS TO TELL YOU HOW GREATFUL I AM FOR ALL THE VIDEOS, ALL ARE VERY INTERESTING..THANKS A MILLION…GOD BLESS YOU.

Saturday, June 18th 2016

    Thank you Maids :)

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Thank you teacher Adam ,there’s a question about “Carry through “in the Quiz and that phrasal V. was not mentioned in that video :D , i like the Quiz it’s full of expressions and Vocabs , have a good one :D

Sunday, June 19th 2016

    You are right, Aya. Where is the explanation about “carry through”?

    Wednesday, June 22nd 2016

    Important notice aya

    Thursday, June 23rd 2016

    Hi Aya,

    It seems I missed a couple of these in the video.

    Carry though means take from start to finish and complete successfully.

    Carry on means to play around and not settle down.

    Sorry for the oversight.

    Hope this helps :)

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Dear teacher Adam: First of all, thank you very much, I’m so glad I found you, I did not know how to use phrasal carry correctly, I know I need a lot of practice on this one, I will do it no matter what, until I get it.

Sunday, June 19th 2016

Excellent teacher as ever! Carry on this way…!
Thank you so much…!!!

Monday, June 20th 2016

Thanks, Adam.
By the way, I’d like to ask
‘in-class performance’ or ‘class performance’ is correct?

Monday, June 20th 2016

    Sorry, I get one more question.
    ‘Master’ and ‘Masters’ what is the difference?
    Under what conditions should I use ‘Master’ and ‘Masters’?
    Thanks.

    Wednesday, June 22nd 2016

    Hi Sophie,

    It depends what you’re referring to. The whole class? class performance. A student’s performance in-class vs. online or on-the-job?
    not sure.

    As for Master, are you referring to a person or a degree? Masters is the plural of master, but I have a feeling that’s not what you’re asking :)

    I have a master’s degree in English.
    I completed a Master of English degree.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

      Thanks.
      However I’d like to ask one more question.
      ‘As being a (position e.g. manager)’ and ‘as a (position)’
      What is the difference between them?

      Monday, July 11th 2016

        hmmm… I’d need a bit more of this sentence. It seems it should be ” as a manager, …”. Not sure about the ‘being’ part.

        class performance means how the entire class performed (academically) as opposed to individuals.

        Wednesday, July 13th 2016

      Then ‘class performance’ usually refers to the attitudes of students or academic performance?

      Monday, July 11th 2016

thanks for your lesson. May I learn one more time to get more.

Monday, June 20th 2016

thanks Adam

Monday, June 20th 2016

Very good, Adam! Thanks.

Wednesday, June 22nd 2016

nice lesson

Thursday, June 23rd 2016

Thanks Adam for this lesson

Friday, June 24th 2016

Hi Everyone. Thank you for all the comments. :)

It seems I missed a couple of explanations in the video, so here they are:

Carry though means take from start to finish and complete successfully.

Carry on means to play around and not settle down.

Sorry about that.

Saturday, June 25th 2016

Thanks Adam for your answer!Great …Perfect.

Saturday, June 25th 2016

Thanks

Monday, June 27th 2016

6/10 , :(( i am a little bit confused about ” carry throught ” , Could you explain it , please??

Tuesday, June 28th 2016

    Hi Thiennguyen,

    Carry through means take to completion. If I started a project, then I should carry it through to the end, not leave it unfinished.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, July 13th 2016

      thank you . i got it

      Thursday, July 14th 2016

Hi, Adam. Thanks for the great lessons. I would suggest that would be good you mention synonyms of the phrasal verbs. That would help people that don’t memorize well by telling a situation, like me. :) Also I suggest you have a small explanation written, after the quiz. That would help memorize better.

Saturday, July 2nd 2016

    I’ll keep that in mind Rarison. Thanks :)

    Wednesday, July 13th 2016

Phrasal verbs is the most difficult and confusing topic I´ve seen. I can´t see the differences among them. Any advise to improve in this topic

Thursday, July 7th 2016

    Hi Cart,

    The best advice I can give is to read a lot and see them i action. Then they are simply like vocabulary.

    Wednesday, July 13th 2016

Thank you for all of your useful lessons,teacher!Please, indicate a sentence structure(or structures) for individual case.And correct me if I made mistake in comment,please!Thanks!

Sunday, July 10th 2016

Dear, teacher! according to your “Carry” lesson; “Carry on” has three meanings(fool around, be silly, and continue)?

Sunday, July 10th 2016

Teacher, please tell me where I can garner an adverb list. Thanks!

Sunday, July 10th 2016

    Hi Truc,

    yes, carry on means those three things.
    If you Google “adverb” you will see many lists.

    I’m afraid I didn’t understand the first question.

    Wednesday, July 13th 2016

Thank you so much Adam. It was of great help and I was able to clear out my doubts. Thanks once again

Saturday, July 23rd 2016

Hi Adam,
Thanks for the helpful classes. They help a lot.
By the way, about no.2, Can I choose carry off? It means finishing the tasks.

Saturday, July 30th 2016

Hello Adam! I’m still in progress to improve for my English language. Sometimes, I still confuse by using a certain vocabulary. That’s my problem.

Sunday, August 14th 2016
