Thank you

Very useful lesson, thanks.
What does “spoinking mean”?

byte

Loved this lesson, I’m really into learning phrasal verbs. I just want to ask a question about the use of “drink up“ in the example as well as in the quiz it was used to mean finishing a drink in a bar, but I wonder if “drink up“ can be used in a different context. For example, I need to leave now, so I have to drink my coffee up. Does this sentence make sense? Thanks in advance.

Edu.ma

    Hi Edu.ma — yes, you can ‘drink up’ any kind of drink, in any location — it could be in a bar, a cafe, at home, in the open air, anywhere. The main idea is that to drink up is to finish your drink fairly quickly because you have to go somewhere else :-)

    Gill

although the phrasel verbes are difficult to master them, i will try to remember of them as much as i can, thank you gill.

SKIKDA

    hello houitcha; how do you feel , and waht abouit JSMS
    i hope you are well .
    here is my advise to remembrer easely what you learn from this website:
    first you have to subscribe in Gill’s channel on youtub, than you have to learn her lessons at the same time she explains them at the video
    and you should repeat this as more as possible
    this is called ” visual remenbering ”
    thank you nighbour and have a good luck
    don’t forget that every good neighbours should take into their considerations the feelings and needs of the others

    ali21

Excellent video. Thanks

marianoparada

Thank you, Gill! This video is really helpful.

SnowWoman

I am in panic. My English teacher asked me to do a presentation but I do not how to start. Please I have no idea what to do!!

siby

I’m so thankful for this lesson. So useful!!
Have a nice weeek.

The prisoners were sitting in the corner whispering to each other. The guard was worried that they were _________ something up.

=> i don’t know why the answer for this question is cooking up :v :v Could anyone else explain to help me?

tranviet007

    Hi tranviet007,
    I wiil try to explain it. ‘ In this case ‘cooking up’does not mean to prepare a meal. These prisoners for example could prepare rebelion or any brutal activity. Simply, it is a slang expression.

    emo53

Interesting lesson. Thank you very much Gill!

knopfler86

According your speach, the sentence in 7 task is not correct.
“Cheryl is a great manager, but she really messed up the presentation to our client”. It is wrong because we have to write: messed “something” up. Then the correct sentence will: “but she really messed the presentation to our client up”. Or am I not right?

svetashev

    sorry svetashev, you are not right

    emo53

      I would be grateful if you explane why I am not.

      svetashev

Thank you very much Gill
Please i want learn more about conjunction verb
I hope see you speak about that

Rita@d

Hello Gill.

#4: I use to say it the way you use, but can I say “look up FOR it”?
#6: Why did you use “I’m having” instead of “I have”. This is the first time I see ING in this type of phrases.

Thanks & greets from Argentina (Hope it is from England someday)

marcelomiguelbazan

    Hi marcelo…
    4: you can say ‘look it up’ or ‘look for it’
    6: it’s sometimes an option to use present continuous rather than present simple — it’s a variation in style :-)

    Gill

Thank you fo lesson!

Hi buddies. I can’t watch any video,even in You Tube! Please help. What should I do????!!!

nkh

    You probably need a VPN to watch YouTube (and EngVid) videos in your country.

    engVid

      Maybe. By the way thank you.

      nkh

I should say I have been able to watch videos before but now I can’t.

nkh

Nice, I have a good luck or I have understood all of the concepts very well, I think that it was the second last sentence because teacher Gill explains so much clear and carefully that I could imagine by myself learning English. Now I am more confident with my look at this difficult subjet such as the phrasal verbs, although they are always complicated for foreigners student like me. Thanks a lot teacher Gill.

angardiobel

    I think I have had a mistake in “foreigners student”, it will be “foreigner students” as a right one expression. Sorry.

    angardiobel

      Thanks angardiobel … I’m glad the lesson has helped your confidence :-)
      The word ‘foreigner’ is used mostly as a noun — if you want to use it as an adjective you can say it this way: ‘foreign students’.
      All the best with your English studies!

      Gill

        Yes, I was the same doubt with the noun “strength” and its adjective “strong” as with “foreigner” and “foreign”, e.g., the famous British Foreign Office. Thanks teacher Gill, very useful review.

        angardiobel

          However, I had some problems with words that ended with “-th” because there are others words that do it with “-ht”, e.g., “strength” and “straight”, and when you write them maybe not remember, besides in “dinner” and “dining room” I had the same problem. Thanks a lot to read these words, it’s a gread aid.

          angardiobel

          Another mistake detected with “there are other words” because “others” would be a pronoun and not an adjective. I will have to sharp my point of view when I write. Sorry.

          angardiobel

Thank you Gill! I think that the phrasal verbs are very difficult for non native english speakers and this classes are very useful for us.

celsofurtado

Thank you so useful phrases.
is it allowed to use those kind of phrases in academic writing??

Ebtesam87

    Hi Ebtesam… thanks for your question. The answer is, it depends — some phrasal verbs are more informal/colloquial than others, and therefore not suitable for academic writing. For example, in an academic essay about a character in a play or novel, it would be better style to say ‘he was planning something devious’ rather than ‘he was cooking something up’. If you’re not sure whether to use a phrasal verb or not, it’s probably safer to use a single-word verb, eg ‘he located the word in the dictionary’ or ‘he referred to the word in the dictionary’ instead of ‘he looked the word up in the dictionary’. But the phrasal verb ‘look up’ is less informal/colloquial, so it would actually be ok in an academic essay. Sorry there isn’t an easy answer :-)

    Gill

Thank you, Gill. It was a great lesson.

Worawitoo

I nailed it. Thanks a lot for the lesson. please keep it up ma’am!

Melanie19

Hi Gill,

So nice to see you again.

Thanks for sharing new lesson.

Fianna

Fianna-law

I got 09/10. Gill, i m a little bit confused getting question 2. Why “messing” shouldn’t come in that. What i got from the sentence is prisoners were whispering so guard should assume that they are planning or going to mess something. In prison ,i guess there isn’t stove available for prisoner ,so how they can cook something? Please make this clear to me . Well, i found the quiz very interesting over all. Thanks gill.

Annie

    Hi Anne — ‘cooking something up’ is metaphorical — it isn’t literally about cooking food. I mentioned that briefly in the video :-)

    Gill

      Pls reply my comment !! I want to ask you a question ! Could u pls help me with below question and explain it to me ?
      Sarah is invited to lots of parties and she goes to ….

      B Every one
      C : everyone

      EllisMin

        I would say: She goes to each one of them.

        Jakub Alvarez

        Hi Dear Elismin
        the correct answer is A definitely

Hi Gill,
At first of all thank you for this lession. It was really intersting. But I have a question.
‘I’m having to read up..’ I supposed that ‘have’ can’t be in continious in this case. We should use ‘I have to…’ Could you explain it, please?

Dear Gill your class was great although I’m still having some doubts about how to write/speak phrasal verbs in the most proper way. Could you explain me in which contexts is better putting the pronoun between the verb and the preposition and in which ones is allowed putting it after the preposition? Regards.

GOOD NIGHT DUDES, THERE ARE A GREAT PHRASAL VERBS IN WHICH I COULD GET FAMILIAR WITH VERY GOOD.DRESS UP, DRINK UP, COOK UP, MESS UP, LOOK UP READ UP, SPEAK UP I HAVE SEEN THEM BEFORE BUT I CAN USE THEM MUCH BETTER.
phrasal verbs are used in English many native guys choose this modern idiomatic way to communicate with a higher level that is own with the language.I am really satisfied with the explanation that the teacher gave us clearly and comprehension.Thanks for your effective methodology of teaching in English.

Igor Hnizdo

Thank you so much for this valuable lesson,Gill.
I’d like to ask you for some advice. Which way is better to learn the phrasal verbs, one verb + different preposition like look for, look after, look up OR different verbs + the same preposition? It’ really hard to memorise the English phrasal verbs and use them in speaking and writing correctly)
