    Using In and Into, On and Onto

    An earlier Hint showed that to and toward are
    generally used with verbs showing movement
    and that to often shows the result of the movement
    while toward shows the direction of the movement.
    In addition, the earlier Hint noted that to can be used
    for toward, but toward cannot be used for to.

    The prepositions in and into and on and onto have
    somewhat similar “behavior.”

    Into and onto are used with verbs showing movement.
    They show both the direction and the result of
    the movement.

    In and on may be used both with verbs that show
    movement and with verbs that do not show movement.
    With verbs showing movement, in and on may be
    used instead of into and onto (though into and onto
    are clearer). In this case, they show both direction
    and result. With verbs that do not show movement,
    in and on show location: in = inside or within
    and on = topside or touching the surface of.


    Fouad dived into / in the lake.

    Fouad says that the water that’s in (not into)
    the lake is cold.

    Chang-Ho threw his keys onto / on the table.

    Chang-Ho left his keys on (not onto) the table.

    Nadia put the cake into / in the oven.

    Nadia will leave the cake in (not into) the oven
    until it has finished baking.

    The cat jumped onto / on the sofa.

    The cat lay on (not onto) the sofa all afternoon.

      Friday, April 12th 2013

    IN TO vs. INTO:

    I. Into is a preposition. In a sentence, the preposition into will be part of a prepositional phrase consisting of into + its object + any modifiers of its objects. The entire phrase it is a part of will function adverbially to modify the verb or verb phrase that precedes the phrase.

    1. When he walked into the room, he found that the meeting had already started.

    2. Put the toys into the basket.

    3. The pumpkin was turned into a carriage.

    II. In the phrase in to, in is an adverb, directly modifying a verb, and to is a preposition with its own object. When the word into is used in a sentence where in to is meant, the resulting statement can be absurd.

    1. She turned her paper in to the teacher.


    2. She turned her paper into the teacher.

    In the second sentence, the paper is transformed–poof!–into the teacher. We’ve all heard the old joke about the magician who was so talented that he could drive down the street and turn into a gas station. Of course, if he just wanted to get gas somewhere, he would turn in to a gas station.

    1. Put the cookie back into the jar.

    2. I need to turn this book back in to the library.

    3. Would you hand this assignment in to the teacher for me?

    4. Turn your badge in to the officer at the desk.

    5. Cinderella stepped into the carriage.

    6. At midnight, the carriage turned back into a pumpkin.

Thursday, April 11th 2013

I really thank you, Teacher Ronnie, that ‘s a blessing to me for learning with each of you, but you I like the way you’re teaching. I have some problems of listening, how can you help me to improve it.

Friday, April 12th 2013

hi Ronnie,

This is first time, i have watched your video and i have found it very conducive. Its just a start because, I have to learn more and want to become teacher like you and like all of them who are helping people to sharpen their speaking skills. Today i learn t about the pronunciation of ‘S’ or ‘SH’ and i will practice for this and will come for next lesson.

Thanks & Regards,

Sachin Passi

not All verbs in English can be changed into nouns

Friday, April 12th 2013

i appreciate you

Friday, April 12th 2013

I’d like to ask you: Do you pronounce “t” in a word “often” ?
I heard that in some native speakers’ talks but I was taught differently in my school.

Friday, April 12th 2013

    Not in some Countries, for instance, in American English you do not pronounce the ‘t’sound.

    Look: often is pronounced (ofen)

    Friday, April 12th 2013

Thank you Ronnie!!:))

Teacher I love your class, they are awsome!

Saturday, April 13th 2013

thank u so much

Saturday, April 13th 2013

thank you;) can you prepare something about replacement of common words, but not so sophisticated ?

Saturday, April 13th 2013

Thank you for the lesson, Ronnie!

I don’t like the word “establishment” and things connected with it. :)

Merriam Webster Dictionary says pronunciation of the word “employment” is \im-ˈplȯi-mənt\, which means the last syllable sounds “ment”. Google dictionary says the same. Does pronunciation in Toronto much differs from pronunciation in the USA. Chicago, for example?

Sunday, April 14th 2013

    Yes! American and Canadian English is very different!!

    Tuesday, May 7th 2013

hi dear teacher..
is this sentence right? if not why?
i watched tv,while you were playing…

Sunday, April 14th 2013

    Yes. Except you need a capital “I”.

    Tuesday, May 7th 2013

      Instead of “while” can we use – when you were playing

      Monday, June 3rd 2013

      I was watching TV while you played.
      Is this correct?

      Sunday, June 28th 2020

One word: That was ”GORGEOUS”!!

Sunday, April 14th 2013

hi Ronnie I loved all the lessons that you have provided allow me to, I hope, more hope to explain to me the colors and achromatic staging labels Sincerely thnx

Sunday, April 14th 2013

You are very good teacher Roony, with your great sense of humor every things you explain is easier for me to understand, thanks a lot.

Monday, April 15th 2013

Thanks Ronnie I love ur lessons

Tuesday, April 16th 2013

Hello Ronnie,
I’m from Brazil, and I enjoy their lessons. I have 2 questions, first how can i use the “that”? Here in Brazil we use always the “that” for many sentences, but in English hardly.
The others question is about “verbs forms”, how to use only the verb, to + verb or verb + ing? for example I love to swim or I love swhimming? that’s all.

Sorry for any grammar error.

Um grande abraço! xD

Tuesday, April 16th 2013

Monday, April 22nd 2013

thanks,you are perfect!

Monday, April 22nd 2013

Hi Ronnie,

Can you please explain why the word J,P,T silent in the following words..

Jungman, Juanita, Jalapino, Tsunami, Pshycology….

Thanks for your help..

Monday, April 22nd 2013

    They come from languages that have different pronunciation rules than English! “Jungman” is German, “Juanita” and “jalapeno” are Spanish, “tsunami” is Japanese, and “psychology” is originally from Greek.

    In German, the letter “j” is pronounced like an English “y”. The Spanish “j”, Japanese “ts” and Greek “ps” don’t have English equivalents, which is why an English speaker would simply pronounce them “h” or “s”.

    Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

You’re an excellent, engaging teacher. From your accent, it sounds as if you are from Canada. I notice that you pronounce “pronunciation” as “pronounciation”. Is this is a Canadian way of pronouncing “pronunciation”?

Sunday, November 1st 2015

Hi Ronnie:

I have enjoyed your lessons a lot. Even though I have lived in the US for over 14 years, I can still learn a few things from you. Your lessons have been both fun and helpful. Kudos to you and other teachers and videographers at EngVid.

I have a comment about this particular lesson. The spelling of judge+ment is judgment. The “e” in “judge” is removed. You most likely know this, but most have forgotten when you filmed this lesson.

Thursday, November 5th 2015

    This just shows how well you’ve learned American English! “Judg(e)ment” is one of those words that is spelled differently in different countries. In the US and in the legal field generally, it’s spelled “judgment”. But in Commonwealth countries like Britain and Canada, when not referring to a court decision, the usual spelling is “judgement”. (I’ve been spelling it “judgement” all the time and didn’t know there was a difference…whoops.)

    Friday, November 6th 2015

I have never seen this word spelled as judgement, so I thought only judgment is correct. Thanks for your explanation.

Saturday, November 7th 2015

Soooo easy .

Monday, November 9th 2015

thank you,
I found out that some of the verbs are having the same spelling for example aid, vow, and cut

Saturday, November 28th 2015

Thanks a lot.

Tuesday, December 15th 2015

Hi, Ronnie

Saturday, January 2nd 2016

Friday, December 8th 2017

i hve a question , most propbly a confusion…how to identify word like “move” which we generally say as verb, which can be used as verb and noun in sentence without changing its letters, such as she made a sudden move(noun) towards me,…here the word became noun but we generally say the word move as verb……..very confusing .. again is “looking” a verb and “telling” a adjective..???
