back. But did you know that it can be used as a noun, verb, adjective, adverb, and a phrasal verb? In this lesson, you’ll learn to use this very common word in each of these ways. The English language has many words that can have different meanings. I’ll explain how this simple word can take on many different meanings, and I’ll give you examples to help you understand each of them. You’ll also learn expressions with the word
back. So don’t
hold back, and don’t
back out. Check out this video!
Hi, Gill! Thank you! Useful lesson!
I agree with you!
Very useful indeed, I would say. The meaning of the word “Back”-as seen in the lesson- may be determined by context.
Although in some instances is not that easy because we need to know how this word functions in the sentence.
In other words, in order to determine the different meanings of a given word in context we need to be familiar enough with the different parts of speech.
Many thanks for sharing all this with us Gill.

I would like to tell you, I am interested in reading a history book in English but last week I went to a library and read some history books, I feel they are difficult to read, Oh dear! I need to open dictionary for finding many words that I did not know.
So, now I believe you can suggest me a tip how to read English history books.
(The books that I read like World history, Western Union History, Colonial States etc.)
Thank you so much.
thank you Gill I love this lesson
great lessons! thanks
Hellow Miss Gill!
You just fabulous!
Thank you Jill. I really like your lesson. It’s very useful. I quite understand your lesson.
This subject is a little hard for me, mainly the phrasal verbs, but you make it easier.
Thank you a lot for this lesson!
Thank you, specially for the phrasal verb.
There are some mistakes on the next short text. Could you find them?
This lesson is about the very useful word ‘back’. It could be use as a verb, an adverb, a noun, an adjective, and it is very common in phrasal verbs. Gill has give us a nice explanation of the mean of each one use, and some very clarify examples related. Noum: Do you want to sit at the back of the bus? I really can’t because my back is itching. Better we could meet us in the back of the stadium. Adjective: the back part of the garden doesn’t have any flower, maybe I could sow some seeds, those are in the back of the garage. Adverb: you will be back to your room hotel soon, because I will come back tomorrow morning. Verb: I’m going to baking at this corner, then back me when you are ready. PV: you should backed down when you understand your are not right. It would be great if we could make a backup of our memories. 0k, I will back off, thanks Gill!
Thank you. Gill
Thank you so much Miss Gill.

I believe that Jesus Christ is coming back.
Dear Gill! Thank you!
I’m enjoying Gill’s lesson. Thank you!
Dear Gill, your speaking is very clear!
But I get confused of some words that have similar meaning.
Because of that, could you explain me simply what the specific differences of backing and back up? I think both of those have similar meaning which is “to support”.
Then, what the specific differences too of backtrack, backwards, backdown, backout and back off. I think those words have similar meaning too which is “to step back”. Please give me your best, thanks Gill! God bless.
I got 10/10
I hope she come back soon. I´ll borrow this lesson to practice this week and give it back in the next one.Leave your comments, but with no fights. I can back off you all.
6/10 Thanks a lot Jill,hugs.

Thank you very much, Gill. If I may to ask I give a question,. What way used “by”? For example, I didn’t understand combination ‘by phone’. Thank you.
