Hi Adam, thanks for this lesson. I have a question, I watched your video about the phrasal verb “fall” and after this one. I don’t understand what’s the difference between fall apart and come apart ?

U’re doing a great job ! Thanks

Profile photo of Doungles Doungles

    Hi Doungles,

    We usually use fall part about people who lose control of themselves. Come apart means break. In some cases they can mean the same thing, i.e., break, though fall apart is by itself, while come apart needs someone or something to do it.

    Does this help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

Nice and useful lesson! There is another phrasal verb with “Come” and is “Come along”. That’s means when you you have a good/bad friendship with someone; it also means progress and accompany someone. Thank you, Adam!

Adam, would you, please, explain me one of the meanings of “come up”? Sometimes, for instance, in Oprah’s TV-shows, you can see titles: “come up” between different episodes of the interview. What does it mean? Thank you!

Profile photo of Natalochka71 Natalochka71

    I think in this case means “next” (in sequence). Right Adam?

    Profile photo of Bergvolk Bergvolk

      Yes, indeed, Bergvolk ;)

      Profile photo of Adam Adam

    Natalochka71 I’ve listened her. She says: “Common up!”. Means: ” Come(out) to us!”.

    Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

      Sometimes you can hear: “Common down!”. It depends on the location of the one who says that (upper or lower). But in some cases it is just a custom. For instance: “Downtown” means in the center of town.

      Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

        “Coming up” means “The next on this channel”.

        Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

          Thanks! Very interesting indeed.

          Profile photo of Natalochka71 Natalochka71

        also, come on down

        Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Actually, it’s “come on up” Katrin :)

        Thanks Adam!

          I was reading with my eye closed. Sorry!

          Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

    Hi Natalochka,

    As Bergvolk wrote, it means “next”, i.e., coming after the break.

      Thanks a lot, Adam!

Thank you for this class.
Phrasal verbs are really tough for us, we didn’t learn at school. However, I try to pay attention at the dialogues in the series and movies.

Hello Adam! Need your help as usual:) Please, explain to me how to use these two similar (in my opinion) words ‘illusion and ‘delusion’. Are these two synonyms?

Profile photo of AlexanderR134 AlexanderR134

    Hi Alexander,

    They’re similar. Illusion looks real (to anyone who sees it). Delusion is when the mind is playing tricks on you and you actually believe something that everyone else can see is not true.

    Certain lighting can create illusions from certain angles. A mean person who thinks everyone loves and respects him is delusional.
    Does this help?

Adam I took IELTS on 17th Oct,2017 n got 7.5 overall band score.I took IELTS again on 7th April,2018 n result awaited.
I m bit worried about task 2 n need help regarding the same.

Profile photo of Tamanna popli Tamanna popli

Topic was in many societies, more n more people r choosing to live life on their own .
Give reasons n is it a positive or negative trend give ur opinion
I wrote about growing trend of nuclear family set-up .
Did I understand the task ??

Profile photo of Tamanna popli Tamanna popli

    Um, well, Tamanna, it seems you went the opposite way. They are saying the trend is moving away from the nuclear family setup toward a more individual and isolated one. Is this movement positive or negative (is it good or bad that more people are living alone)?

10 out of 10 lol.Thank you!But in this video I noted one sentence:”I live just over down the street,come around sometime.”I don’t quite understand why you put “over” and “down”together. I know this basic meaning is “I live in the street”,but I don’t know the specific direction.Maybe it’s a dynamic process,two prepositions,over means from one place to another place,down means to a lower place,and over+down means from one place to a lower place?And “I live just over down the street”means the horizon of the house I live is higher than where I am speaking now? Please help me understand,Thanks.

Hello, Adam. Listening to You was a pleasure. indeed, that was so clearly explained. Yet, i still have a question, probably more refering to the whole theme.
Don’t You think that a phrasal verb is a combination of a verb and an adverb?

Profile photo of AdamPshunetlev AdamPshunetlev


Profile photo of na80 na80

Thank you Adam. I like how you give examples of each phrases, like that we can understand much better. Could you please teach me how I can use the phrase “that Means”, when is plural and when I can use it when is singular? Thank you again, I really appreciate it

Thanks for this lesson! What about the word come off? Does it have a meaning like break too? For example a door handle has come off (like detached from the door) Or it’s wrong?

Hi Adam and everybody. Please tell me what does it mean when v-ing is used inside the phrasal verb meaning movement:

She came running across the field.
My dog always comes bounding out of the car.
