stepto talk about taking responsibility, doing things faster, taking a break, becoming a leader, leaving a job, and more.
Step upto the plate and learn phrasal verbs—they will make your English conversations much more interesting. You’ll also be able to understand more of what native speakers say in person and in movies. After the lesson, take a
step back, review what you have learned, and test yourself on the quiz!
Thanks Adam for sharing this great lesson with us.
By the way, this set of phrasal verbs are not that easy to master. But as the saying goes “Practice makes perfect”.
Thanks Adam .I love the way you explain things .Keep on doing the good work
I got 10 out of 10 but, honestly, I glanced a little the notes I took during the lesson. Now, I have to study these phrasal verbs. Next week I will try the test again without helps, hoping to achieve the same result (10/10 obviously).
Thank Adam for your precious support in learning of English.
Hi Regino! I couldn’t help but notice that you comment on almost all the videos, and personally speaking those comments are worth their weight in gold.
Oh gosh! You really made my day NOA!
Let me share something with you. It is my belief that using the foreign language and sharing your ideas with others will help you out to be better.
This marvelous website has given me the great opportunity to do so. We all here are on the right track! YOU included!
Now changing a bit the subject, as far as I can tell, NOA you are a competent user of the English language. congratulations! You´ve reached an excellent level.
Gracias por tu comentario NOA; me hiciste sentir muy bien. La verdad no lo esperaba; comparto sin esperar algo acambio. Sin embargo siempre es muy grato recibir comentarios constructivos y muy alentadores.
Mil gracias nuevamente.
Excellent lesson Adam. Could you upload a video about bank terms. I work in a bank and it would help me a lot. Thank you
I’ll see what I can do axllopez.
I got 8 out of 10.Thanks Adam, I promise to do better next time.
Wow! I did it all correct, that’s a great step up :)
Hi Adam. A great lesson as always. :) A small doubt about question 8. Is this not: “You’d better step on it”? Thank you.
Yes, you’re right. That’s a typo. I’ll have it fixed asap :)
Hi Adam, thank you. Waiting for a new great lesson.:)
Thank you so much Adam. It`s a great lesson.
Thank you so much,teacher Adam,for giving me the lesson of English “Step phrasal verbs”.Great:)
Adam Sir your teaching is very effective and well informing. Thanks for your video lessons.
Without reservation, I still strongly believe phrasal verbs are one of the most difficult grammar tasks. But these teachers make them look easier. Thank you Adam for your explanation.
Thank You Adam!
Hi Teacher Adam , Thank you for regarding this essential subject it was very confused for me .

Good luck pavanpawar ;)
Mr.Adam,you are great with all meanings that the words have
Very interesting, I really enjoy this lesson… Thank you so much
thanks Adam for this ciear lesson,it seems that you like phrasal verbs if i am not wrong.
Hello,Good to see you back SKIKDA, but where are the others…Soei,nkh,natanna and the angry young man Tokozo.It was such a fun chatting with them all.Hope to see them all back soon.Stay blessed and healthy.
And yes I do agree with you about teacher’s liking phrasal verbs, he does like it, if we start counting teacher’s lessons about the phrasal verbs it must be more than 80% of all his lessons,but still its great.
thank you eichi for your concern and would tell your reply was tricky and a kid of a joke because in the first time i think that Mr Adam who reply me and then i’ve smiled when i recgnise the truth,and just ‘kotoz’ not ‘Tokozo’ take care.
Hahaha so funny, well using positive tricks are good rather its a beauty of life.We all should add some colours to our dull and boring life.Anyhow you at least had fun this way and sorry for my mistake I really didn’t realize,Sorry Kotoz if you mind.It is such a rear name, I never heard it before there for hard to keep in mind.BTW isn’t it a more lively and nice pic than the one on engvid? I asked teacher to replace that with this but since he didn’t so I did mine.Stay always blessed and healthy
SKIKDA why don’t you come and join teacher’s book club, Its such a fun way to learn more.Come and join us there.See you there.
Hello Engvid Moderator, Thank you so much for adding the spell check but the editing option I asked you to add is the one that the facebook provides where you can edit your comment even after submitting it. You see I made a mistake in my comment to SKIKDA but am unable to correct my mistake.Although its ok with the friends but sometimes we write something to teacher and on the very next day we say, we shouldn’t have said this to teacher and should edit our comment but find no option.I hope you understand what I mean and I do appreciate your hard work for this great site.Thanks and Stay always blessed and healthy.
I know what you mean! I will discuss this with the management.
Thank you so much Moderator.
thank you for your advice, please give me the way to join this club and you will see me there
My pleasure, here is the link facebook.com/groups/172220446643766

Hi Adam, yesterday I got 6; today I get 8
Thanks Adam, this lesson was great..
I need to practice more for this lesson ,Thank you Adam,
News!!News!!!Not only Spanish politicians step around the questions, but also Canadian do it!!
Thanks for the lesson Adam.
Although phrasal verbs are normally very difficult to remember, your examples are clear and easy to remember, which makes it easier to learn.
Politicians are a species all their own Knopfler ;)
got 8 out of 10
I will always step forward for fighting against plastic pollution on Earth! Thanks Adam.
I love your lessons!Make more!
I look forward to seeing more!
hi, Adam ,thank you very much for your lessons . I think your lessons will be very helpful and useful to my students .However, I do have some questions concerning about how I can share your videos to my students in a foreign country. May I have your email address so I contact you for further detailed information? Thank you again!
Hi. To be fair, the videos are only available on YouTube, which in some countries is not available. you might need to use a VPN. Anyway, you can email me at info at writetotop.com

info at writetotop.com
This is my own site and address.
thank you so much
I got 8 out of 10. You are doing a great job Adam Sir.
It’s more useful for competitive exams. Sir, please upload the video on Error Spotting in a sentence.
That might be a little too specific for this platform. See my videos at writetotop for some useful videos to help with this topic.
Thank you for my reply Adam sir
Thanks Adam Sir, for your lesson..
You got 6 correct out of 10.
not bad for start !
Before being a teacher, I am a learner first.
is this sentence correct?
Absolutely Himkhr. (though the ‘first’ isn’t really necessary because of the ‘before’).
I’ve seen your tasty gummy worm before!
hmmm… not sure what you mean Yurei
Thanks Adam for sharing this , it was helpful for me.
hey adam thank you very much i got 10 out of 10 thank you for the help you provide people around the world we really like you
Great lesson. I like the way you explained. That’s step by step and easy to remember them.
thank you adam i like your teaching technique
i got 10 out of 10
very cool way to explain it
Thank you Adam, in a short yet meaningful video lesson like this I learned a lot. Please keep uploading your English lessons.
Great Job Adam!
Very, Very nice class
Great job! Looking forward to hear from you with new phrasal verbs lessons! very useful classes!
You can congratulate me Adam, I bought three brand-new books printed in USA and UK only for 15$ – O HENRY stories 735 pages, Edgar Poe tales 414 pages and John Galsworthy’s The Forsyte Saga 722 pages.
I’m going to begin with O Henry.
Hi Adam! Thanks for this video, it is really interesting.
Dear Adam , i want u to teach me when i starting the question via (did)and when via (was)
Use did with to ask about an action. Use was to ask about a situation. There are other examples, but these are the general ones.
Thank u for this comment but Could u make video for the difference between it
Now. Icon’t me sentens when I speak or talk and I feel shy when talk slowఠ ͟ಠಥ⌣ಥ
It’s ok to feel shy, but you need to try to speak as often as possible. This way you will improve quickly. Just remember that it takes time and practice. Good luck :)
Thank you Adam. Really useful lessons…
Very interesting and helpfull lesson as always.
Thank you Adam
Thanks for all your lessons, youre a great teacher. By the way Adam it would be very useful if you could make a class about the omission of IF since i couldnt find a video about that yet in Engvid.
I’m not sure what you mean by ‘the omission of if’. Do you mean replaced with should or had? (Should you need more information, please ask.)
hi Adam. yes it is kind of like that. they called it “ommision of if”. However, all of the sentences, for example, begin with WERE ” were Dianna to work more, she would be welthier” “were i to be you, i would not go there”etc. i just found a video of yours about grammar inversion it did help me a little more. thanks for your attention teacher.
No problem. You can also look up something called the “subjunctive” mood. That’s what your example is.
Hey Adam, I don’t know if you can reply me, but I would appreciate it if you can tell me the differences between these meetings. they are parliament, congress, conference, forum, board, committee, commission, council, convention, session, assembly, gathering. I know some of them already, but if you can make a summary of the differences between them, that’d be great. Thank you.
Ideally, you should look these up in a dictionary. Mostly, though, the difference is in terms of size of the meeting/group and function. A congress, for example, is international and usually involves professionals in a field (usually an academic field). A session is one meeting in a series of meetings, usually small and focused on a specific topic in an agenda.Some of these are synonyms too.
Hope this helps a bit.
You are very awesome! I need to find the differences myself. Thanks a lot.
A little difficult to remember all the meanings but we may afford them with effort and constant reviews. I have confused “step on it” with “step on”, more or less increasing pleasure than being hurry, the memory fails when the practice “step down and back”. Thanks a lot, teacher Adam, I will try not to be so tight next time and thinking slowly. A Very good explanation as always.
I wanted to write “increasing pressure” and not “increasing pleasure”…
Do You speak any other language(s)?
Thank this lesson too,it is very useful!
I have survival level language skills in a couple others ;)Nothing fluent.
Hi, Adam. I got 10 out of 10, but I don’t think I really have a good command of it then I should watch it again. Plus, I’ll try my hand at IELTS someday in August and I really hope for an ideal score!!!!:D
Thanks everyone :)
Thank u adam sir…
Thank’s for sharing this lesson! I’ve to understand very well this topic >.<
Take care :)
Phrasal is a little bit complicated. But the you explained them in the video really get my attention. So I will have to review the lesson so that I can put them into practice. Do you have other videos on phrasal verbs? You are making a great great deed. God will pay you.
HI Mr. Success.
There are quite a few of these videos. Look for the search box on this site and type ‘phrasals’ there to find them.
Fluent and clear. Thanks !
I got 10 out of 10. Thanks for the useful help in trying to improve our English so efficiently.
it was hard for me , but lesson was very helpful
I really thank you for your great efforts. Good luck!
,,And when I walk the streets
Kings and Queens step aside” : ))))
I got it perfectly, so encouraging. I feel that I want to step up more quizzes. Thanks a lot.
Thanks Adam. I always download your video and practise. Thanks you so much.
Thank you Adam!
Adam, your classes worked! I got 9 correct out of 10! I’m so proud of it! I’ve been confused on number 4 cause step on means pressure. But step up was better on that cause means get the position, take leadership. Thx!
Well done Adam! I am keen on your videos!
sad! I`ve got the 60 point.
this would be a very useful information across all four sections of English exam, thank you Adam.
Actually I like your way of teaching and sharing ideas , excellent job Mr. Adam
I like the your way teaching

A great lesson! but i got 8 out of 10,a bit sad of the result ,anyway thanks Adam !

Nice lesson Adam. Thank you so much!
Thank you adam you expalain very well
Many thx Adam
How to remember all those combinations ? :)
When life becomes difficult, it seems like we go a step forward and two steps back.
Just one question: Why couldn’t we find some phrasal verbs you explained, in dictionaries? even the advanced ones?
like: step around, step out, step back…
Just to say thank you for your lessons.
I found your videos on YouTube.
I’ve just signed up for more exercises and hope to make good progress in my English learning.
Thank you so much
Now I need to step out for a short while and get back here, amazing class from Adam!
I owe you, Adam. I should step back to see the whole point.
A bit hard to memorize. You were very clear. Thank you
I got7 correct out of 10.Thanks for the lesson! I try to do better!! :)
I like your lesson so much, it’s really useful for me, because I just want I can use those simple words competently instead of using those new vocabulary which are complex @_@,
so… Can I have your TRANSCRIPT fully, it would help me alot, many thanks
Hello Adam, can I use phrasal verb as in any form of the tense? E.g the word step around – stepped around. If not how can I express it as for a past incident?
Hello Adam, can I use phrasal verb as in any form of the tense? E.g the word step around – stepped around. If not how can I express it as for a past incident?
Hey Adam I have a doubt related to the lesson and I would be grateful if you could help me out. I came across the sentence: “Production is being stepped down because demand has dropped”
Step down meaning reduce, but it doesn’t appear like that in other places.
Thank u and great job.
I got a perfect score! Thanks, Adam!
i am really happy with your lesson. thank you.
Great lesson. Phrasal verbs are always welcome.
Thanks a lot.
thank you adam
I scored 8 out of 10. But I’m happy to have learned some new phrasel verbs. It’s always problematic for me to use phrasel verb naturally but I think it sometimes seems pretty easy because of you adam. I’m sure sooner or later I will start using phrasel verbs naturally. The way you brake down phrasel verbs is quite fascinating and enjoyable to easily remember.
thank you for your great lessons
and when I should study TOEFL after advanced level or after intermediate and can I study it after this lesson or will be difficult
10 out of 10, I did well stepping up to this plate.
Its so helpful.thanks
Thank you Mr. Adam.
I got 8 out of 10…thanks
As far as I know it is not recommended to use phrasal verbs in academic langue. Is this the same in the case of news? Is it preferred not to use them while announcing a news in the media?
Thanks for the great lesson
plase can you explain; as well as and as far as, Idont understand it .
As always, this lesson is also very helpful. I think I should repeat and practice to make them all mine.
step around – be indirect, avoid
step aside – get out of the way (not be an obstacle)
step back – get a different perspective/view
step down – resign
step forward – admit, take responsibility
step in – get involved
step on it – hurry
step on someone’s toes – offend, anger
step out – go out for a short while
step up – take leadership, command
8/10! Adam’s lesson always makes me confused. I will practice much more. It is useful for me. Thanks!
Thank you Adam. I got 10. I love your clases and moreover I ejoy the exercises. You got ten too.
Thak you very much for you work and numerous of educational videos. Just a quick question, do you have any plans to make other quizes on phrasal verbes? They are very helpful in consolidating the material.
Hello Mister Adam,
It’s a real pleasure to watch your video because I am learning a lot and thanks for sharing with us this english course. I appreciate a lot.
I got 90% for the quiz and learned a new english expressions or phrasals verbs
8/10. Not bad. thanks, teacher! much appreciated.
