turnphrasal verbs to talk about using gadgets or electronics. By the end of the lesson, you will know how to use the prepositions
DOWNwith the verb
TURN. This is an easy lesson, but many students make mistakes using these words. Don’t be one of them!
It is a pleasure to be the first one to leave a comment in a lesson of a very enthusiastic teacher.
Congratulations teacher for the way you give the explanations. It is easier and useful to understand everything your say and everything you show.
Carry on with your good lessons.
I’m looking forward to see your next video.
Excellent lesson on phrasal verbs James; your talking fast, makes the lesson more challenging.
Looking forward to your next video lesson.
Thank you James Your lesson is very useful for me and anyone who want to imrove their english skill.
Thank you Shelter I would like to be friend with you I added you on skype.
Thank you Ukrit. I added you among my contacts on Skype as well.
Thank you for your great lesson, James. Your lesson was easy for me to understand :)
If I’m talking about a car, can I use TURN ON the engine? Thanks
yes you can!
The house is too hot,turn AC on.
Plz describe the following
Take for granted
Anything to go by
Thank you for the lesson, I enjoyed it.
Could you please make a lesson of how to use IN and ON as place prepositions, it really confuses me when I want to say for example: «Let’s talk on/in Skype»
I also have difficulties to understand when I have to use WHOM instead of WHO
I got 90 thanks for the lesson.
Thanks a lot James! This video turned up my knowledge.
Great experience.. It’s very helpful to me…thanks
hey James! great lesson! so, a question for you and it don’t have anything about your lesson but: what does the worm do there ?
That worm is Mr. E. He is James’ virtual friend in his English lessons.
oh all right! thanks for the explanation! cheers!
Hi James, nice lesson, but why did you talk so slowly:) it was too boring, because we used to your speech, please be yourself, and please don’t try to pretend a classic teacher, :P have a nice day
Maybe because this one is a lesson for beginners? Anyway, still faster than Rebecca’s or Alex’s normal speech. ;)
I think his rhythm is reasonable.
I think he is so kind for doing that
I got 70 so sad
thanks james that’s helpful
thank you james for all your helpful lessons
Great lesson! Thank you James. Is there someone which want help me to improve my english? I’d love!
You mean,you wanna talk to someone…
Good job James, I love watching your videos and could you please make a video about judicial terms?
Thank you James.It’s very good lesson.I don’t like when the volume of the music is high , so I always turn it down , when it is too high.
Thank you James. The lesson was very usefull. And James was quite serious. I was glad to see you more serious.
I am still wondering what happened between examples one and two XD It should have been really funny looking at James´face!!
Thank you James for this easy but useful lesson!!
What about turning the lights OUT?
The truth can turn out but not the lights. Turn out means to get known something that was a secret.
Mmm, I don’t know how to do it politely…you are just being wrong. There are lots of online dictionaries, so dare try one before you state something. At least begin with ‘I think’, please.
If a grammatical structure is frequently used, that doesn’t obviously mean that, it is correct. I’m sure you know such examples in your language as well. Of course, online dictionaries are trying to collect everything to be as helpful as it’s possible. However, I wouldn’t encourage anybody to intentionally learn wrong phrases.
Turn out the light it’s same like turn off the ligth.
but this meaning it’s only about ligth, because usually “turn out” means to something that proved or became evident. or someone that suspected as worng but eventually he was right, so it became clear.
in Hebrew there is expression: “hatzedek yetze laor” = “justice will prevail”. The meaning of this phrase is, the justice will go out to the light and will be clear like the daylight.
Thanks James, you are great teacher, i know english by the way, but speaking is very difficult for me, becouse i live where no one speak, Nowadays i am trying to improve my speaking through internet. thanks all of fellow students.
Hi James I appreciate once again hanyour fantastic lesson. May I ask you a question: Is there any difference between using switch on and turn on?

Hello James, thank you for your explanations about power on, off, up and down, all of them are very useful when you try to speak in English and want to make you undertand
I like this video lesson. Thank you
Thank you James.
In the United states, I heard a lot that people use “turn out” instead of “turn off”.
to make an electric light go out by operating its power switch, they used “turn out” as well.
another thing it happened to me is that in dating or hook-up stuff, you can hear the verb “turn on” and “turn off” a lot.
“turn on” in these situations means “arouse somebody” or to make somebody feel sexually excited and opposite of that: “turn off”. like: you perfume turn me on. OR you rude behavior turn me off badly.
Thank you, James, for this lesson full of ups and downs!
You make my English confidence and understanding go up and up. No, I’ll not say “boy, you turn me on”.
Thanks again and “ciao” (italian) or “tchau” (portuguese).
thank you for this lesson.. very helpful
Thank you very much!
ta veryyyyy much
thanks very much.my respect for you
I LOVE MY SCORE!!!!!
thanks for the lesson

Thank yo for lesson James. For me and may be for other guys will be interesting lesson about “finishing” verbs, such as – finish, end, give up, wrap up and so. To avoid general mistake I use finish in any case instead of right one.

Thanks for the lesson. It’s really good!

Very interesting lesson, very nice way to teach and explain the issue. It turned up my enthusiasm!
From different perspective it can be described like comparison of smth’s condition. turned off(no effect) – turned down(low effect) – turned on (usual effect) – turned up (empowered effect, hidger then normal).
Am I right? Anyway, it was funny, thank you!
Thank you for the lesson. It was very useful and easy to understand it

Turn on has the same meaning of switch on?
In your explanation draft about the difference between turn up/down and think you have to change the arrow’s direction for going low (360 low) because I saw that low and high have the same arrow direction.
By the way, I am a beginner and this is my first comment.
Thank you for this lesson

Thank you for the lesson James but, on question 9 9. The bath was full, so I ______________ the water.}
I choose turned down but, the answer was Turned off, why it was Turned off if we are given any power to the water?
I turned on all my brains for this quiz. But turned them less down on the sixth and ninth questions.
