Adam thank you a million for a brilliant lesson!You always made our days.However i didn’t cath up with whether that verb Rat on or Rat out?


    Hi Hermanicus,

    Rat on and rat out are actually similar. It’s to tell a secret about someone. Rat on is to say someone did something bad. Rat out is to show someone who is trying to hide.

    A mafia member will rat on another member before he commits a crime.

    When the police are looking for someone, a friend might rat him out and help the police catch him.

    Does this help?


Hi Adam,

thank you for an amusing lesson.

(Learning English should be a fun).

With the word MONKEY, you have used two phrasal

verbs : MONKEY WITH (on the board) and MONKEY

AROUND WITH (by explaining it verbally).

I have checked up both of them in the dictionary

and they mean exactly the same thing.

Thank you many times.


    Hi Adrijana,

    They can mean the same thing. Monkey around with can also mean play around; for example with kids you can monkey around by play-fighting or something like that.

    Hope this helps :)


Got 09/10 . Adam ,in question no 08 . Why with the apostrophe comma with the word ” people ” came before s . Didn’t it come after “s” like peoples’ lives , instead ” people’s lives ?


    Hi Annie,

    That’s a good eye. It looks it was a typo on the writer’s part. I’ll make sure we’re all more careful in future.

    Thanks for pointing it out.


Thank you Adam.


Thanks Adam! I learned it and got 09/10. Next time I’ll get all questions!

rat out?


    I think rat on and rat out are the same things.
    The difference could be like this:
    1. He ratted on her.
    2. He ratted her out.


      Well used Egghead :)


Thanks Adam! Good job as always.

    Hi Amirfazel,

    It means to tell someone what someone else did. For example, if I know Tom cheated on the test and I rat him out to the teacher, he will get in trouble.

Bob was a casual worker. One day Sera started working as a secretary at the same work. Bob saw her while he was pigging out at the cafeteria. She was so beautiful that Bob did not keep eating. He only watched her. Bob really wanted to go out with Sera but the problem was that he always clamped up in front of her. Whenever he found enough power to ask her out, he always chickened out when she was around. He did not bear with this situation any more. So he decided to go a doctor. The doctor tried to fish for information on his relationships. It turned out that Bob always preferred to weasel out dating if the women were so attractive. He usually belittled himself and found an excuse to duck out of the hangout. The doctor told him that he needed to be good looking. Bob bought some new outfits with money that he squirreled away. He felt more confident now. He asked out Sera and she accepted. Bob was really happy. He knew how to monkey with self-confidence from now on.

Thanks Adam!


Thank you Adam. But I want to know if all these phrasal verbs are formal or informal?

Emmanuel MANDEBI

    Hi Emmanuel,

    These are all informal. Do not use these in a formal academic essay, such as in IELTS or TOEFL.

    You can use them in the speaking section if you use them correctly and in the right context.


Thanks my teacher


Thank you Adam. Very good lesson.

Marcos PM
