Thank you very much Adam. May you have a very happy life.

EnjoyEnglish

Thank you Adam! I got only 7 correct out of 10 after watching this lesson for the first time. I am confused with (or by?) back away and back out. I think I should watch this lesson more than one time.

Dear Adam
thank you for your lesson.It’s very useful
I confused about this question ” It is a good idea to have someone guide you as you try to back your car _____ a tight space.”
you said back in = back into, so why the answer is into ?

pjapnghiem

    i suppose ”back your car in” should have been true.
    regards

    keremgolbasi

    Hi pjapnghiem,
    I’ve done the same mistake, so I’ve listened the lesson once again.
    If I well understand I think “back into” can be used with these 2 cases :
    1. The car backed into the wall (= bump the wall)
    2. The car backed into its place (“in + to” = mean a movement toward the inside of something, the place in this example).

    Hope It’s right and it will help you.

    Nico ESL for ever

    Hi Pjapnghiem,

    Nico explained it well. Space, in this example, means a contained area. So you need to back into (inside of) it.

    Adam

      Hi adam.

      abdal7

Why are phrasal verbs so difficult to learn and to remember???
Thank you very much Adam to make this process easier ;)

knopfler86

It is a little bit confused but ..I could get it better.in my mind We have to use them in a conversation.

bakhtiyar ali

very good lesson but is not a new lesson, is an old lesson. What’s happened.

Frank

    Hi Frank,

    Where have you seen it previously?

    Adam

      Sorry Adam, I have confused with the lesson “Phrasal Verbs As Nouns” as you see, I follow all your lessons. Thank you, your lessons are my favorites.

      Frank

        Can we say, So you back down of him ? Or just back down !? Adam, give me a hand please

        FaresNinou

clear but not to back off (the pressure) to learn the different meanings. Need to practice.

marienba

Thank you for all your help.

phamquynhanh

I enjoy learning phrasal verbs because sometimes its befogging but still very interesting to learn.Thank you Adam.I think I could understand it only because of your fantastic explanation.

TEJALKK

Neat and clear explanation!Not a single superfluous word

AnnaPavlova

    Thanks :)

    Adam

Hey, Adam, and thank you for this lesson. I was wondering whether you could explain to me why it is incorrect to use ‘back in’ in task 6?

Cryman

    Hi Cryman,

    Space, in this example, means a contained area. So you need to back into (inside of) it.

    Adam

Useful lesson. I noted it is a little bit tricky quiz. There is no verb “back in” but in each question we come across such choice “in”.:)

NadiaM

I liked this lesson. I missed a few sample sentences.

juventus champ

Hello Adam,
Come and sit ‘by’ me.
We stayed in a cottage ‘by’ the sea.
Come and sit ‘beside’ me.
He kept his bag close ‘beside’ him at all times.
He sat down ‘next to’ Pam.
There’s a public telephone ‘next to’ the pub.
It’s a little village ‘near’ Cardiff.
I don’t want to sit ‘near’ the window.
I’d like to live ‘near’ my parents, if possible.
The prepositions above are confusing words to me (by, beside, next to, and near)
Do you have a magic solution how to use them easily without any embarrassment?
I asked Mr. Alex this question and he answered:
No tricks, unfortunately. Just memorization and trying to think of the logic to them.
Near = close to
Beside = next to/directly to the left or right
By = around/near/close to
Sorry. Wish I had better news for you. :)

gag

    Hi Fahdbensalman,

    I’m afraid Alex is right. There are many parts of the language that simply require memorization.

    That being said, these prepositions are often interchangeable, meaning you shouldn’t make an embarrassing mistake if you used them that way.

    Come and sit by/next to/beside me.– all of these would express the same meaning. Near would be a little strange as it still leaves some space between you and the other person.

    I will only add some nuances:
    next to–in a sequence
    beside–to the side
    by– wherever there is space close to
    near– not far

    hope this helps a little.

    Adam

      Mr. Adam,
      I swear that all your nuances are valuables.
      They make big differences in our comprehension.
      Thanks.

      whichsoever

Thanks Adam for this lesson!

I imagine as a good practice to learn ‘phrasal verbs’ filling a big matrix of verbs versus prepositions with their respective meanings. Maybe using this resource I will learn a fraction of them one day :-)

Fabio Cicerre

    Good luck Fcicerre :)

    Adam

It’s not easy to memorize this less :)

abdelle

    Hi Abdelle,

    I do test-prep courses only. I’m not sure about the other teachers though. You can write a comment on their videos as well.

    Good luck.

    Adam

Thank Adam! Great!

Tania D.

Thanks a lot, Adam.
But I have a question.
“Imagine you are/were a farmer, what will you do?”
When we use ‘imagine’, we should ‘are’ or ‘were’?
Besides, the last sentence what tense should I use?
‘will’ is it correct?
Thanks in advance. :)

Sophie

    I get one more question.
    Rice is mostly grown to the south of the Chang Jiang.
    Why do we use ‘to the south…’ but not ‘in the south…’?
    Thanks!

    Sophie

    Hi Sophie,

    “Imagine you were a farmer; what would you do?”

    (although, many native speakers would use ‘are’ and it has become acceptable.)

    To the south means ‘south of’. In the South (capital S) means in the area that is known as the South.

    Although, you can say in the southern regions.

    Adam

the answer of question number 6 is wrong, in is the correct answer

Deedo

    Hi Deedo,

    Space, in this example, means a contained area. So you need to back into (inside of) it.

Real good. Thanks, Adam.

Rena jackson

    You’re right, Rena. :)

    Adam

Hello, Adam! Phrasal verbs always are confusing me. But at least about them with “back”, I’m better at using them. I won’t back away from learning English and I won’t back out of my words.

Thanks for your eplanation.Phrasals are really difficult to learn.I have to try many times in order to use them properly.Is it right to use phrasals in formal speaking or writing?

Leonie Spinelli

    Hi Leonie,

    Yes, phrasal verbs are part of all levels of spoken and written English. They are not slang (though, of course, some are).

    Adam

useful lesson. Thanks Adam, but I can not remember exactly the use of all phrasal verbs.

Chau Le

    Hi Chau,

    They are like vocabulary; the more you use them, the more you’ll remember.

    Adam

      absolutely right

Akarkoub

Hi Adam.

So many phrasal verbs, how to catch UP with native speakers?
Memorize all of them ; quit an impossible task.

Trainers, please, carry ON learning them us.
The more we hear phrasal verbs (in their context), the more we become used to figure OUT all these particles additions.

Thanks to back us UP !

Nico ESL for ever

i have got 6 of 10 :D

Aboela

Just have started reviewing my English. 8 out of 10, so far so good. Never back down)

VistAndrii

Everyone needs someone to back him up during his learning process. Thank you very much!

Johann Cardenas

Adam: I don’t understand your lesson, it’s some confuse, can you make a new lesson with other examples? Please! you will make me really happy! please!

Sharait

    Hi Sharait,

    I probably won’t make another lesson about this topic as there are so many others, but you can ask me questions about things you didn’t understand here. :)

    Adam

Thank you so much dear Adam!! it was very helpful for me too. We have to know more about phrasal verbs because people from different nations can understand hardly the meaning of phrasal verbs and it is more complicated to translate these ones than the simple words. YOUR WORK IS EXCELLENT!!THANK YOU

Vidamzenesz

thanks a lot

djazirglami

Thank you Adam!

juliajames

Thanks a lot! I will continue to hear your lessons/

Antony Dimsky

Thanks youu!!

Marioo

Thanks!!!!I never know the right term to use , will whatch the lesson again next week!!!

FabioTNeto

Hey Adam so basically, “back in” is never use, we just have to use back into for everything right?!!

yoshius black

    Hi Yoshius,

    Think of back in as the action (how), and back into as the direction (where).

    How will you get the car into the garage? I will back in (i.e. not drive forward but backward).

    Where will you park the car? I will back it into the garage (where will I put it?)

    Does this help?

    Adam

      Actually, I had the same question about “back in” after watching the video.
      Sure, it helped. Thank you!

      amrual

very useful lesson! Thank you Adam.

dbaral

Very interesting your lesson! Thanks for help me!!!!

Bruno Moraes

what difference between hyphen and dash

CHANBBSOQQ

    Hi Chanbbsoqq,

    A brown-eyed girl (hyphen)

    From 10 – 2 (en dash)

    Bob–that was the killer’s name–was found at last. (em dash)

    There are 2 types of dash, but a hyphen is used to connect two words to make one, while a dash shows a span, or is used to interrupt the writing.

    Adam

Hey Adams my name is Jorge im from Mexico. I I’d like to learn more about English why? Because i need it. Also i must speak this language because its important in my job. Just i dont like something. For example i feel that you should put more examples and also you must splain better. I wish you answer me.

Jorge16marquez@ags

    Hi Jorge,

    Please keep in mind that these lessons are meant to be quick looks at a topic. There are also examples in the quiz. We can’t write a whole book chapter for each lesson. However, if there is something you don’t understand, you can always ask here.

    Adam

Thank you so much Adam.

(I hope that my sentence could be correct!)
Thank you for this useful lesson. All the best to you, my favorite teacher Adam. :)

Chloe.Lee

    It is :)

RaviSlemany

lolo abdo

Thank you Adam

aysenur.kusan1

Thank you for the lesson Adam! Please tell me what does the next sentence exactly mean: ‘I will do my homework in an hour’? Does it mean that I promise to do my homework during this first hour or it can be done after the first hour? Thank you.(I think, it must be done during the hour, just after promising)

KATRIN777

    Hi Katrin,

    It can mean I will start to do it one hour later, OR it will take me one hour to complete it. The meaning depends on the context.

    I will do my homework in an hour and then we can go.

    I’ll just rest a bit now, and I’ll do my homework in an hour.

    Adam

      Thank you Adam! This is good.

      KATRIN777

Thank you very much for a great lesson.

Could you please explain when “nouns become adjectives”. For example:
– sheep’s milk cheese
– performance enhancing drugs
– an apprentice magician
– a medicine man, a priest-doctor
It is unclear for me when I may use a noun, or possession, on a hyphen to make a word which describes the following noun. What happens if I put together several nouns? Will they have meaning of adjectives?

Thank you in advance.

Nyirka

very good lesson thanks.

faizmuhammad

Hey Adam!

soso123

    Good idea Soso. I’ll see what I can do for you :)

    Adam

Hi Adam! I’ve got one more question(by the way – A question or without ‘A’ in this case).
Question:
1 There (IS,ARE) an old man and hares in the boat.
2 There (IS,ARE) hares and an old man in the boat.
(if it is not too difficult, explain me that please)
Thank you.

KATRIN777

There (ARE,IS) one table, two chairs and a divan in my room.

KATRIN777

    Technically, the subject takes the verb and in these examples, ‘there’ is not the subject. old man and hares is the compound subject taking the verb are.

    an old man and hares are in the boat
    hares and an old man are in the boat
    one table, two chairs and a divan are in my room.

    It might sound strange to use there are one table…, but it’s actually correct.

    That being said, good writing usually avoids starting sentences with there is /are anyway.

    Does this help?

    Adam

      Adam, this from a textbook for kids and there’s one strange rule in that book, I read a couple of days ago:
      you must use IS or ARE depending of which noun closer to them plural or single (for instance: there is a river and lakes in my city/ there are lakes and a river in my city).
      I don’t like this and I don’t believe it (please help!)

      KATRIN777

Adam excuse me, I have one more.
In the textbook for 5 class I found one text which called ‘Lollipop Ladies’. There is a sentence from it here.
‘Today so many children go to school by car and bus, that there isn’t as much of a need for patrols to help children cross the streets although, of course, there is still some need.’

Adam, I think there must be ‘TO’ before ‘CROSS’.
Please explain it to me! Bye!

KATRIN777

    HI Katrin,

    ‘help’ is the only verb that does require its following infinitive to use ‘to’. If you add the ‘to’, it’s ok, but you don’t need to. I hope this helps you (to) understand. :)

    Adam

      Thank you Adam.

      KATRIN777

Thanks so much Adam for the lesson. I currently just started learning English an I need help on Noun, verbs, pronoun, adjectives and so much more. Could you direct me.

Hi Adam!Can I make a stupid question?… Are these phrasal verbs American-English or British-English too?

AnnaAriel

    No such thing as a stupid question Anna.
    Yes, both use them ,and for the most part they are the same, but sometimes there are different ones for each. Australians also have some of their own. I can’t recall any at this moment, but I’ll get back to you on that ;)

    Adam

Very interesting lesson (:
I want to ask you (:
Do you think studying literature will help me to become good English speaker ? If you recommend me to study literature do you think learning poetry will increase my vocabulary??

positive_learner

    I think any studies will improve your English either in vocabularies ,Grammar or combination of sentences .
    the more you read in English , the more you gain no matter what the field .

    I hope you understand what i mean.
    wish you best of luck .

Thanks for the lesson, very informative. There is the question: “back off” it’s a bit rude, isn’t it? Is it permissible to use this expression in society?

Platonov

Sorry. I did not understand somethings. It is similar back off and back away for me. Why not? Could not anyone explain distinction. Thanks for help.

Natalyzefir

    As I understand it, “back off” is more abrupt, even rude expression. And “back away” meaning “to step back, to retreat”. I’m not sure, but it seems to be the meaning.

    Platonov

mwahab80

Dear Adam,
I would like to say thank you for what you do for students. Your lessons are very clear, simple and usefull.

Will be there another lessons about phrasal verb? (I have seen already 3 about get, set and back)

Daulet HK

There are some mistakes on the next short text. Could you find them?

In this one, Adam had explained the meaning of phrasal verbs with ‘back’. Remember, those phrasal verbs are building with a verb plus a preposition. Backup means go to backwards, it is used to express support; back away to reclaim to other people get away from any place; back down is referring to leave a debate when you are waking of your argument is most weak; back off, it’s useful when you want to say to another don’t bother me, for example, you can feel afraid when someone reach you more than you want, so you can say: ‘hey, back off’. Back in and back into, really I am not sure if I understand it, but I think those are the same meaning, and could be used in the same kind of situations for example when you need to come back and fit any space that exists for this goal. Finally, back out, it mean you have changed your mind, and you prefer a different option that you had chosen at the beginning. I tried to back up this information because I need to back away from here at the moment. If I really wrong, I will need back down, just before other said me back off, if I continue writing in a wrong way. I hope this short write can back in the expectations of the well understanding lesson. If this won’t happen, I never back out to learn. Thank you, Adam

9 out of 10, the paparazzi one was really good.

ramoncarrasco

Thank you for the useful class and the breaking down those phrasal verbs that frustrates a lot of learners :) Bye the way I noticed something you mentioned about unclearly in the class that sounds a little like something else off. Now I get what you meant to say. Then by searching the internet, I found that Australian people sometimes call the insect repellment as F-off.
And when it comes to the definition of phrasal verbs, if the combination of a verb and preposition is that, could be F… I just busted out laughing. I feel like earned a lot of something. Thank you Adam.

Hi,
Thanks Adam for your back up us learning English. I learn English for 6 years and still lack confidence in English is my main weakness. I am sure I will not back out learning English, I am stubborn and have goal to one day express myself without any my doubts about understanding what I mean.
Good for us having you as a teacher
Best

Grzegorz Bak

i m jayant

Thanks, Adam!

EkaterinaGeneralova

Great video. It helps me to carry on improving my English skills. I got them all right. Thanks Adam

hemasaayman

Hey Adam, I get confused between back out, back off and and back. The three of them refer to withdraw from doing something but how can I differentiate them?

iamoreiram

I got 4 out of 10. I need to do more practice. To recap, I copied the explanatios:
“Back away” means “move away from”.
“Back away (from)” means “not get involved or remove oneself from”.
“Back down” means “quit, give up, or stop fighting”.
“Back off” means “remove the pressure or threat”.
“Back out” means “break a commitment or promise”.
“Back into” means “move into a space”.
“Back into” can also mean “move backwards and hit something”.
“Back up” means “move backwards”.
“Back up” means “support or reinforce”.
“Back up” can also mean “make a copy”.
