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.

    Thanks Adam .I love the way you explain things .Keep on doing the good work

    Thursday, May 25th 2017

    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.

    Monday, May 29th 2017

      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.

Adam Sir your teaching is very effective and well informing. Thanks for your video lessons.

Thursday, May 25th 2017

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.

Thursday, May 25th 2017

Thursday, May 25th 2017

thanks Adam for this ciear lesson,it seems that you like phrasal verbs if i am not wrong.

Thursday, May 25th 2017

    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.

    Friday, May 26th 2017

      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.

      Friday, May 26th 2017

      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.

      Sunday, May 28th 2017

        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

        Saturday, June 3rd 2017

        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.

        Saturday, June 3rd 2017

          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.

          Saturday, June 3rd 2017

          I know what you mean! I will discuss this with the management.

          Monday, June 5th 2017

Saturday, May 27th 2017

    Absolutely Himkhr. (though the ‘first’ isn’t really necessary because of the ‘before’).

I’m going to begin with O Henry.

Friday, June 2nd 2017

    Congrats ;)

    Enjoy them.

    Sunday, June 11th 2017

Hi Adam! Thanks for this video, it is really interesting.

Saturday, June 3rd 2017

Dear Adam , i want u to teach me when i starting the question via (did)and when via (was)

Sunday, June 4th 2017

    Hi Mahmoudibrahim,

    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.

    Sunday, June 11th 2017

      Thank u for this comment but Could u make video for the difference between it

      Friday, July 7th 2017

Now. Icon’t me sentens when I speak or talk and I feel shy when talk slowఠ ͟ಠಥ⌣ಥ

Monday, June 5th 2017

    Hi Najatahmed,

    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 :)

    Sunday, June 11th 2017

Thank you Adam. Really useful lessons…

Tuesday, June 6th 2017

Very interesting and helpfull lesson as always.
Thank you Adam

Wednesday, June 7th 2017

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.

Wednesday, June 7th 2017

    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.)

    Sunday, June 11th 2017

      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.

      Sunday, June 11th 2017

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

        Friday, June 30th 2017

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.

Thursday, June 8th 2017

    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.

    Sunday, June 11th 2017

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

      Sunday, June 11th 2017

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.

Thursday, June 8th 2017

    I wanted to write “increasing pressure” and not “increasing pleasure”…

    Thursday, June 8th 2017

Hi Adam,
Do You speak any other language(s)?
Thank this lesson too,it is very useful!

Friday, June 9th 2017

    Hi Anitacan,

Monday, June 12th 2017

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.

Tuesday, June 13th 2017

    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.

    Friday, June 30th 2017

Fluent and clear. Thanks !

Sunday, June 18th 2017

Wednesday, August 2nd 2017

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!

Friday, August 11th 2017

Well done Adam! I am keen on your videos!
