Excetllent lesson! I do like this subject: phrasal
verbs. Thank you very much.

Monday, March 12th 2018

Adam you are great!! Thank you for everything😊😊😊

Monday, March 12th 2018

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

Monday, March 12th 2018

    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?

    Wednesday, March 28th 2018

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!

Monday, March 12th 2018

    Good points Ae97bc ;)

    Wednesday, March 28th 2018

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!

Monday, March 12th 2018

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

    Monday, March 12th 2018

      Yes, indeed, Bergvolk ;)

      Wednesday, March 28th 2018

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

    Saturday, March 17th 2018

      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.

      Saturday, March 17th 2018

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

        Saturday, March 17th 2018

          Thanks! Very interesting indeed.

          Saturday, March 17th 2018

        also, come on down

        Wednesday, March 28th 2018

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

      Wednesday, March 28th 2018

        Thanks Adam!

        Saturday, March 31st 2018

          I was reading with my eye closed. Sorry!

          Saturday, March 31st 2018

    Hi Natalochka,

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

    Wednesday, March 28th 2018

      Thanks a lot, Adam!

      Wednesday, March 28th 2018

Luke and Lando? Nerd alert showing up, eh?
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.

    Welcome Sera :)

    Wednesday, March 28th 2018

These phrasal verbs are very useful.Thank you.

Sunday, March 18th 2018

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?

Sunday, March 18th 2018

    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?

    Wednesday, March 28th 2018

thank you so much but
I’m bad at hearing because the Americans are talking fast . helped me

Monday, March 19th 2018

    Hi BTS,

Saturday, March 24th 2018

    Hi Wangyou,

    In China you may need to use a VPN because the government blocks YouTube. But, I did see other visitors here who watch it on Weibo.

    Wednesday, March 28th 2018

Thanks you very much for the great lesson, but I wonder if I can use these words in the formal situation??

Sunday, March 25th 2018

    Hi Fang,

    Some of them, yes.

    For example, The doctor was doing research on a cancer treatment when he came across an interesting discovery.

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.

Monday, April 9th 2018

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 ??

Monday, April 9th 2018

    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)?

    Tuesday, April 17th 2018

I got 90 / 100

Tuesday, April 10th 2018

Good lesson, Adan. Thank you for teaching!

    Tuesday, April 17th 2018

Hi Mr.Adam thanks for this useful lesson .
But we need more and more practice to understand to these phrasal.

Wednesday, May 2nd 2018

thanks a lot, Adam

Tuesday, May 15th 2018

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.

Friday, May 18th 2018

Please Adam sir make video of articles and noun

Tuesday, June 26th 2018

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?

Wednesday, June 27th 2018


Friday, June 29th 2018

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

Friday, July 6th 2018

Hi Adam! I highly appreciate your lesson about phrasal verb with verb “come”. It was clear for me. Thank you very much. You the best 👍😊 Keep it up!

Wednesday, July 11th 2018

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?

Thursday, July 12th 2018

Hello my dear teacher! I am glad that I came across this useful lesson. This lesson might come in handy at some time in the future.
Thanks for your superb lesson!

Friday, July 13th 2018

Hi Adam and everybody. Please tell me what does it mean when v-ing is used inside the phrasal verb meaning movement:
You let the winds come tearing apart(song).
She came running across the field.
My dog always comes bounding out of the car.

Wednesday, August 1st 2018
