phrasal verb of set is too tough for me to remember.8 correct out of 10

Sunday, March 27th 2016

    Same here! Greetings from Brazil!

    Monday, March 28th 2016

    dont give up 8 is a great score .

    Tuesday, March 29th 2016

    Yes so do I, it’ really hard to remember

    Sunday, April 3rd 2016

    only 7 correct~~

    Sunday, April 3rd 2016

Well, even after this great lesson I totally don’t understand what does Adele mean singing I Set Fire to the Rain))

Sunday, March 27th 2016

    nice one, you make me laugh.

    Sunday, March 27th 2016

    Ed, that’s an oxymoron) It means that she tries to burn the rain, which is impossible.

    Tuesday, March 29th 2016

      Thanks for that interesting word- oxymoron, especially I learned two more useful words Oxy & moron)))

      Friday, April 15th 2016

    Hi Ed,

    Actually, Aleksei got the right idea but I also think it might be about the fire inside her coming out in her tears (rain).

    Maybe :)

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

      Good vision. Another version, she burned rain (tears) to overcome the breakup

      Friday, April 15th 2016

As long as you making notes during the lesson is not tough to deal with the quiz :)

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Nice class sir very fruitful earilier i requested for make a class on Sentence types but sir you didn’t got me i was saying one is Like Declarative sentence, Imperative and interrogative etc and other is complex compound i understand the formal but the latter Complex compound if you make it clear it would be my pleasure sir thank you.

Sunday, March 27th 2016

    Hi Sanaullah,

    I’ll try to make a vid on that, but in the meantime, a complex-compound sentence has two independent clauses joined by a coordinating conjunction (and, but, or, …) and at least one dependent clause.

    I asked him why he didn’t come to the party and he answered simply with a shrug.
    ind. cl: I asked him
    dep. (noun) cl.: why he didn’t come
    ind. cl.: he answered

    Does this help for now?

shit………i got 1

Sunday, March 27th 2016

I do like this lessons about phrasal verbs. However, it´s really difficul to remember all these expressions. I will see the lesson again this afternoon.
Thank you so much Adam, nice explanation ;)

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Ups, these instead of this and difficult instead of difficul :S

Sunday, March 27th 2016

the main thing with phrasal verbs is to know the most often used ones. You don’t have to keep in mind every phrasal verb it is just impossible

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Hi Adam, thanks for this great lesson! You gave me a lot of new information. I am waiting for your next great lesson, I learn a lot with you, you explain very well. Have a nice Sunday!

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Very useful lesson, Adam. Thank you very much! I got 80, that’s too much information to remember. I’ll watch the lesson once more.

Sunday, March 27th 2016

yes , i have 100 . Thank you very much for your great job.

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Hi adam, thank you so much for this interesting lesson. It was really helpful. You are an amazing teacher.

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Adam, your lessons are really challenging, especially those on phrasal verbs.
I found a great site where you can download the file in pdf format. Definitely the best book of PV I’ve managed to find so far, provided with lots of explanations and a number of examples for each phrasal verb. This is something you want to see. Tell me what you think of it. The link is below:
https://eslebooklibrary.files.wordpress.com/2009/07/phrasalverbs.pdf

Sunday, March 27th 2016

    Thanks Vladandevla.

    (just be careful about putting up copyrighted material) ;)

    Tuesday, April 12th 2016

it’s kind of difficult for me

Sunday, March 27th 2016

hey Adam, i want to thank you. this morning, i took an english exam which is important in my country,like ielts, and it went very well. i’m big fan of you, often watch your lessons, so thanks for your contributions. you are doing great job, all other engvid teacher as well

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Most of phrasal verbs have its easy substitute (for example: he set about his deal – he started his deal). This idea bothers me)) I figure, I’d rather use the second option in a speech

Sunday, March 27th 2016

    You’re right Kubanez. Just remember though that others will use these phrasals so you need to understand them in order to receive others’ messages.

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

hey Adam, thank you for your lesson.

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Thank you a lot Adam .You are like the best teacher I’ve ever come across. I got 9 of 10.

Sunday, March 27th 2016

you are a brilliant teacher adam, thank you for your efforts for kindness and for your courtesy

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Interesting lesson and ,as usual, great explaination . But now,i can say that “They must have watched the movie” but why that there is no expression like “They must have been watching the movie ” ? Thanks in advance, Adam :)

Sunday, March 27th 2016

    For instance, My sister woke up late today ,so i deduced that (( she must have been watching TV till 3 or 4 am yesterday))

    Monday, March 28th 2016

    Hi Melegy,

    It’s all about context. As soon as you include “until 3 am, you are showing a continuing action. If you use watched, it suggests that the action was completed an you are referring to it as a whole action rather than an ongoing activity.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

      Yeah . Thanks a lot :)

      Thursday, April 14th 2016

Be aware this topic has set in my mind for years and I´ve always been set to use it properly so far, despite its complexity. I do want to set myself straight when it comes to phrasal verbs, because they´ve really been a setback to me, then I decided to set foot in my bedroom and set aside/apart all my stuffs to set off/out Adam´s lesson on this subject, as well to set down everything about it. I know it´s the only way my skills at it are going to set up. What I´m trying to say here is that I´m an eternal person set on doing this right. Thanks, teacher Adam. All the best ;)

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Adam is really good at teaching phrasal verbs, I hope I learn a lot more with him. Thank you so much!

I got 9/10.

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Hi Adam,
can set _____ to be interchangeable with set _________off?
For example, set fire to/set fire off?

Sunday, March 27th 2016

    Hi Percy,

    I’m afraid not. Set something to means apply it to. Set off can mean start (a journey) or make something start (set off the alarm. Also, with fire, you can only set fire to something, but you can set off the fire alarm.

    Does this help a little?

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

      Thank you, Adam.

      Sunday, June 26th 2016

Marvelous lesson teacher!!!

Sunday, March 27th 2016

dear Adam, thanks so much for your efforts and lessons, they are really helpful ans so explicit because they are done in a simple way.

Sunday, March 27th 2016

Thank you Adam.

Monday, March 28th 2016

Thank you Adam.

Monday, March 28th 2016

thank you Adam!
effectively, this lesson is not easy, but inreching!
the comments comfort me because my heard was heating during the quiz… :)
4/10 i xill be better.. ^^

Monday, March 28th 2016

Thanks for this useful lesson, could you plz explain that how can we find that a phrasal verb is formal or informal? To me most of them sound informal.

Monday, March 28th 2016

    Hi Maliban,

    Most phrasals are neither formal or informal. They are just vocabulary really. Some are informal though, like head out. There is no list of these or anything like that, but you should be able to tell from context. In any case, if you need to write formally and you can find another word that means the same as the phrasal, use that.

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Thanks a lot!

Monday, March 28th 2016

Thank you very much, Adam. I was waiting for this lesson. My score on quiz was bad (6 out for 10). I’m gonna watch the video again.

Monday, March 28th 2016

I understood that the word “set” can be replaced by “put” often in these phrasal verbs, right? They have the same meaning sometimes.

Monday, March 28th 2016

    Hi Cicero,

    There are instances where this is true, but be careful; in most cases you will have a different word entirely. Set off and put off are not at all similar. Set up and put up can be mixed in some contexts, but in others they will be very different (set/put up a display; set Bill up with someone means introduce him to someone; put up with Bill means to tolerate him, or spend the night at his house)

    Hope this helps.

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

      Hmm Thank you, Adam! I’ll be careful about it =)

      Friday, April 15th 2016

Sivakumar so late back to this lesson I’m very sorry about that Mr Adam sir…
I enjoyed this lesson and caption Which I have written in notebook and have read it while watching this lesson and it was so fun.. “SET OOT IN” it was one wonderful phrasal verbs in among all.. And the example so clear that you explained sir..
Great Adam sir..
Definitely big thanks people have to give yyou for this kinda phrasal verb lesson sir si I do give you big thanks sir Big thanks sir!!!…

Monday, March 28th 2016

    Thank you Sivakumar :)

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

easy to understand but I still got bad score :(

Monday, March 28th 2016

Hi Adam, I have a doubt, can I use set aside or set apart in the case of time? For example, I am going to set aside time to read every day. Is it correct?

Monday, March 28th 2016

    Hi Ishaja,

    Yes, you can definitely set aside some time for something. You can also use set apart, but less commonly used this way.

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

7/10 thank you adam for this great lesson!

Monday, March 28th 2016

Mmmmmmm! Make the quiz without listenig the lesson well, doesn’t give a lot of satisfaction:)

Thanks,Adam.

Monday, March 28th 2016

Hi Adam! Even the lesson was great, I got a bad score, phrasal verbs are hard to learn for me.

Monday, March 28th 2016

hello! Adam! I would like to know about … ending prepositions .. you know questions ending in prepositions … example: with whom are you taking with?? or who are you taking to.. and I would like to know about WHOM AND who ! its because I sow to many questions ending for, at , on , in , over , ..ect please I need your help!! I cant get it !

Monday, March 28th 2016

    Hi Erick,

    Many old English teachers used to say, “never end a sentence with a preposition.” These days people don’t worry about this rule too much. The only thing to be careful about is not to use the preposition twice:
    with whom are you taking with? (either at the beginning or the end, but not both)

    In formal writing, it is recommended you don’t end with a preposition.

    Also, “Who are you talking to?” is technically not grammatically correct, but it is used commonly.

    Finally, don’t forget that some of these prepositions you might see at the end of a sentence might be part of a phrasal verb, in which case there is no problem with their position.

    Hope this helps.

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Nobody says it’s easy to study languages,but practice makes perfect)
Adam,than you for one more brilliant lesson.

Monday, March 28th 2016

Hi Adam!, Could you make a video about how to make better sentences? Usually, my sentences are poor.

Monday, March 28th 2016

    Hi Fabrick,

    I think that would require quite a few lessons. First, though, it is important to know the grammatical structures of different types of sentences. Start with that. Then, as long as a sentence delivers a clear message, it is a good sentence.

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

HI everyone,Adam, you did a great job, I LIKE IT.
…. really, you have set me straight about many slangs in english, thank you a lot..

Monday, March 28th 2016

Thank you, Adam. I find confused.

Monday, March 28th 2016

Hı There :) This is Huseyin
I would lıke to learn difference between “Could” and “was able to” . I would very delighful if you could make a video lesson to clearify difference and its usage Thanks alot

Monday, March 28th 2016

    I’ll get on that Huseyin :)

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Ever great class on EngVid.com !! congrats!

Monday, March 28th 2016

Hı There :) This is Huseyin
I would lıke to learn difference between “Doubt” and “Suspect” . I would very delighful if you could make a video lesson to clearify difference and its usage Thanks alot

Monday, March 28th 2016

    Hi Huseyin,

    To doubt means to question the truth or possibility of something. To suspect means to have an idea about something or someone before getting all the facts. Suspect can also be synonymous with doubt, meaning to question the truth of.

    Paul doubts Jill’s sincerity.
    Paul suspects Jill’s sincerity is put on.
    Paul has no reason to doubt/suspect Jill’s sincerity.

    Anyway, I’ll make a lesson about confusing word pairs :)

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Hello Adam,

I got 100% on the quiz, I am so excited! :) I did not expect to get so high score because usually phrasal verbs are too confusing for me. Your explanation is so clear and memorable. Thank you so much for this lesson!

Yours sincerely, Elena.

Monday, March 28th 2016

Your lessons always are great…

Monday, March 28th 2016

    Yes, Levi, my heart is set on teaching ;)

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Hi Adam , your phrasal verb lessons are amazing
i would like you giving us more and more

Tuesday, March 29th 2016

What’s the difference between very, really, a lot etc?
Can you explain the differences?

Tuesday, March 29th 2016

    Hi Lilletrille,

    I’ll make a lesson about this, but they are generally equally usable as quantifiers or adverbs of degree.
    I’m very happy is similar to I’m really happy. It’s a matter of which you or your listener judges to be stronger.

    A lot is used with amounts.

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

An useful lesson! Thank you.

Tuesday, March 29th 2016

8 out of 10 Good but not excellent, i will try again.

Thank you for this helpful website that a friend of mine indicate to me today. I really need to improve my english.

Tuesday, March 29th 2016

Nice class and good explantion. I’m set to use all of those prasal verbs now.

Tuesday, March 29th 2016

Thanks Adam. I did well at the test, but I must keep practising on these phrasal verbs with “set”.

Tuesday, March 29th 2016

great class, I set down all your advises and tips and could get a 10 on the quiz ,…going for more phrasal verbs they are so useful and very common in a normal conversation with native speakers…thanks a
lot

Tuesday, March 29th 2016

Sorry, for this but I would just like to be clear between shift switch please! SPECIFICALLY

Tuesday, March 29th 2016

    Hi Davidben,

    Mostly I’d say it’s about the scope of the change. You can switch your support from team A to team B, but you would shift your priorities away from sports to studies.

    If you can give me a specific example, I can probably give you a better explanation.

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Just a poor 6/10, the worst result I’ve ever achieved! Presumably I didn’t understand some parts of your lesson, I’d better set up a strategy to improve this topic.

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

Great and difficult lesson for me but thank you, Adam

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

my favourite topic is phrasal verbs especially when it comes from you Adam …. really thanks for being a part of our life

Saturday, April 2nd 2016

    Hi Knata,

Good time to all of you! Could anybody direct me to the lesson about phrasal verbs with “to be”? I mean, is there such lesson on that site? If not, Adam, could you please make a lesson on that theme?

Sunday, April 3rd 2016

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Hi for all..I would be gratefull if I find some one to master my english conversations via skype or any other way

Wednesday, April 6th 2016

Hi Adam!

Could you make a tutorial about “Who’s/Whose/”, please?

Cheers,

Wednesday, April 6th 2016

    I’ll see what I can do Alejandro.

    In the meantime, who’s is who is or who has. Whose is a possessive (pronoun) conjunction

    Whose book is this (who does it belong to?)
    Who’s got my book (who has got my book?)

    Hope this helps a little.

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Thanks Adam. you r a great tutor

Wednesday, April 6th 2016

Adam!
You are more than great,I feel pleasure when I watch your lessons.
All the best

Wednesday, April 6th 2016

Thank you very much for such amazing lessons, Adam! Could you please make a lesson on the names of the most commonly used chemicals in English-speaking countries?

Thursday, April 7th 2016

I´ts OK if I use Set Up on this way. My girlfirend has a single girlfriend, and I set her up with my beast friend.

Friday, April 8th 2016

    All good Adolfo, though I’m not so sure your girlfriend’s girlfriend will be too happy about being set up with a beast ;)

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

      hahaha, so I have a dude about it, because you almost use “girlfriend” to concernt at the friend of my girlfriend on the example check it, i´ts supposed that there are not gender, it´s only Friend no matter if is male or female.

      Wednesday, April 13th 2016

        :) I was referring to the “beast” friend where you probably meant “best” friend ;)

        Monday, May 2nd 2016

some of the phrasal verbs are separable . How can we easily identify which phrasal verbs must be separated by an object? I hope, memorizing won’t be the only way. :)

Saturday, April 9th 2016

    I hate to give you the answer you don’t like Mariam, but other than memorizing, the best way to learn these things is to read a lot and see them in use. :)

    Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Thank you Adam.
But too much information to remember.

Sunday, April 10th 2016

9 OUT OF 10! I think it’s good, isn’t it?

Sunday, April 10th 2016

I’ve learned all of these. So useful using it on day-to-day life

Sunday, April 10th 2016

Hi everyone! I’m interesting on talk with others and improve our english!
Add me on skype: @maby200

Monday, April 11th 2016

Nice teaching and useful lesson,Adam.

Monday, April 11th 2016

I was a little bad in this questions, Just 70%. I Will be better the next.

Tuesday, April 12th 2016

Thank you very much everyone. Remember, you don’t need to learn everything in one day. Just start to get a “feel” for the language and read, read, read, every day, and this will all become much easier.

Also, talk to each other. Use Skype, Google Hangouts, email each other. Use it, or lose it
:)

Wednesday, April 13th 2016

    thanks about that sir adam :) and more God bless to come.

    Sunday, April 24th 2016

Thanks, Adam.
I want to ask ‘specified’ and ‘specific’ what is the difference?
Thanks in advance.

    Hi Sophie,

    Specified is a past participle, meaning someone made it specific. Specific is a simple adjective.

    Monday, May 2nd 2016

      Then this sentence “All tourists must be part of an escorted group to specified locations.” Is it grammatically correct? or ‘specific’ should be used?

Hı Adam
My Request about relative clause . and details about using “what” and “How” . Why they aren’t be assumed as relative pronoun .Can you clearify this topic maybe making video lesson about it
Sincerely

    Not sure I understand Huseyin. Are you asking why they are not relative pronouns? Relative pronouns are used for adjective clauses (and some adverb clauses). What and How are used for noun clauses only.

      Actually Yes
      I am asking why they are not relative pronouns?

You’ve set up such a dense video today! Great! I’ve watched two times and taken notes to make the quiz.

Sunday, April 24th 2016

Thank you for lesson, it’s very useful!
I have a question. If I can’t stand such thing as wars and violence, can I say something like “I dead set against war/violence”?

Wednesday, April 27th 2016

    Hi Nat,

    You can say “I’m dead set against” these things, but keep in mind the nuance is a little different from can’t stand.

    Monday, May 2nd 2016

100% bang! But still need to practice, phrasal verbs are my weak point definitely :D

Thank you for this lesson.Although I can not entirely memorize all of these phrasal verbs,but I think I make a great progress on the phrasal verbs about “set”,I got 8 correct out of 10.Please point out my mistakes on this paragraph.Thank you again.

Saturday, May 28th 2016

Adam,thanks for having you here and your wonderful detailed video about the phrasal verb “set”.I’ll keep my study by watching your videos.Best wishes with you.

Monday, May 30th 2016

Excuse me , I have a question
if we have a verb has the same meaning of phrasal verb so why we use the phrasal specially most of time we cannot memorize the phrasal verbs !

Thursday, June 2nd 2016

Friday, June 17th 2016

Hi, Adam! Thank you for the lesson again. Quite helpful as usual. I will set my heart on improving my English until I speak it fluently.

Friday, June 17th 2016

THANK YOU SO MUCH. BUT I STILL CONFUSE ABOUT “SET AGAINST”. SET AGAINST MEANS “DETERMINED”OR”OPPOSED TO”. THAT IS EXACTLY CONTRARY MEANING.
