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 again.

    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.

    Profile photo of eichi eichi

      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.

      Profile photo of eichi eichi

      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.

      Profile photo of SKIKDA SKIKDA

        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

          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.

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.

Profile photo of erikagonzalez erikagonzalez

    Hi Erikagonzalez,

    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.)

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      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.

      Profile photo of erikagonzalez erikagonzalez

        No problem. You can also look up something called the “subjunctive” mood. That’s what your example is.

        Profile photo of Adam Adam

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.

Profile photo of wdlll wdlll

    Hi Wdlll,

    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.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      You are very awesome! I need to find the differences myself. Thanks a lot.

      Profile photo of wdlll wdlll

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.

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.

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.

Dear Adam,
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?

Profile photo of Ghazalehmk Ghazalehmk

Dear teacher
Thanks for the great lesson
plase can you explain; as well as and as far as, Idont understand it .

Profile photo of wafaa abkar wafaa abkar

As always, this lesson is also very helpful. I think I should repeat and practice to make them all mine.
To recap:
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
