      Nice use of the phrasal verbs. But next time don’t forget to add the “s” after the verb in the present simple.

    Ed, that’s an oxymoron) It means that she tries to burn the rain, which is impossible.

    Hi Ed,

    Actually, Aleksei got the right idea but I also think it might be about the fire inside her coming out in her tears (rain).

    Maybe :)

      Good vision. Another version, she burned rain (tears) to overcome the breakup

Nice class sir very fruitful earilier i requested for make a class on Sentence types but sir you didn’t got me i was saying one is Like Declarative sentence, Imperative and interrogative etc and other is complex compound i understand the formal but the latter Complex compound if you make it clear it would be my pleasure sir thank you.

Profile photo of Sanaullah Sanaullah

    Hi Sanaullah,

    I’ll try to make a vid on that, but in the meantime, a complex-compound sentence has two independent clauses joined by a coordinating conjunction (and, but, or, …) and at least one dependent clause.

    I asked him why he didn’t come to the party and he answered simply with a shrug.
    ind. cl: I asked him
    dep. (noun) cl.: why he didn’t come
    ind. cl.: he answered

    Does this help for now?

Ups, these instead of this and difficult instead of difficul :S

the main thing with phrasal verbs is to know the most often used ones. You don’t have to keep in mind every phrasal verb it is just impossible

Most of phrasal verbs have its easy substitute (for example: he set about his deal – he started his deal). This idea bothers me)) I figure, I’d rather use the second option in a speech

Profile photo of Kubanez Kubanez

    You’re right Kubanez. Just remember though that others will use these phrasals so you need to understand them in order to receive others’ messages.

Interesting lesson and ,as usual, great explaination . But now,i can say that “They must have watched the movie” but why that there is no expression like “They must have been watching the movie ” ? Thanks in advance, Adam :)

Profile photo of Melegy Melegy

    For instance, My sister woke up late today ,so i deduced that (( she must have been watching TV till 3 or 4 am yesterday))

    Profile photo of Melegy Melegy

    Hi Melegy,

    It’s all about context. As soon as you include “until 3 am, you are showing a continuing action. If you use watched, it suggests that the action was completed an you are referring to it as a whole action rather than an ongoing activity.

    Does this help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Yeah . Thanks a lot :)

      Profile photo of Melegy Melegy

Be aware this topic has set in my mind for years and I´ve always been set to use it properly so far, despite its complexity. I do want to set myself straight when it comes to phrasal verbs, because they´ve really been a setback to me, then I decided to set foot in my bedroom and set aside/apart all my stuffs to set off/out Adam´s lesson on this subject, as well to set down everything about it. I know it´s the only way my skills at it are going to set up. What I´m trying to say here is that I´m an eternal person set on doing this right. Thanks, teacher Adam. All the best ;)

Profile photo of Emanoel Pereira Emanoel Pereira

Hi Adam,
can set _____ to be interchangeable with set _________off?
For example, set fire to/set fire off?

Profile photo of percyjoking percyjoking

    Hi Percy,

    I’m afraid not. Set something to means apply it to. Set off can mean start (a journey) or make something start (set off the alarm. Also, with fire, you can only set fire to something, but you can set off the fire alarm.

    Does this help a little?

Thanks for this useful lesson, could you plz explain that how can we find that a phrasal verb is formal or informal? To me most of them sound informal.

Profile photo of Maliban Maliban

    Hi Maliban,

    Most phrasals are neither formal or informal. They are just vocabulary really. Some are informal though, like head out. There is no list of these or anything like that, but you should be able to tell from context. In any case, if you need to write formally and you can find another word that means the same as the phrasal, use that.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

Thanks a lot!

Profile photo of Vivimi Vivimi

Thank you very much, Adam. I was waiting for this lesson. My score on quiz was bad (6 out for 10). I’m gonna watch the video again.

Profile photo of halem2013 halem2013

I understood that the word “set” can be replaced by “put” often in these phrasal verbs, right? They have the same meaning sometimes.

Profile photo of ciceromsjr ciceromsjr

    Hi Cicero,

    There are instances where this is true, but be careful; in most cases you will have a different word entirely. Set off and put off are not at all similar. Set up and put up can be mixed in some contexts, but in others they will be very different (set/put up a display; set Bill up with someone means introduce him to someone; put up with Bill means to tolerate him, or spend the night at his house)

    Hope this helps.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Hmm Thank you, Adam! I’ll be careful about it =)

    Yes, you can definitely set aside some time for something. You can also use set apart, but less commonly used this way.

Hi Adam! Even the lesson was great, I got a bad score, phrasal verbs are hard to learn for me.

Profile photo of Aleachi Aleachi

hello! Adam! I would like to know about … ending prepositions .. you know questions ending in prepositions … example: with whom are you taking with?? or who are you taking to.. and I would like to know about WHOM AND who ! its because I sow to many questions ending for, at , on , in , over , ..ect please I need your help!! I cant get it !

Profile photo of erickxavierg erickxavierg

    Hi Erick,

    Many old English teachers used to say, “never end a sentence with a preposition.” These days people don’t worry about this rule too much. The only thing to be careful about is not to use the preposition twice:
    with whom are you taking with? (either at the beginning or the end, but not both)

    In formal writing, it is recommended you don’t end with a preposition.

    Also, “Who are you talking to?” is technically not grammatically correct, but it is used commonly.

    Finally, don’t forget that some of these prepositions you might see at the end of a sentence might be part of a phrasal verb, in which case there is no problem with their position.

    Hope this helps.

Hi Adam!, Could you make a video about how to make better sentences? Usually, my sentences are poor.

Profile photo of Fabrick Fabrick

    Hi Fabrick,

    I think that would require quite a few lessons. First, though, it is important to know the grammatical structures of different types of sentences. Start with that. Then, as long as a sentence delivers a clear message, it is a good sentence.

Profile photo of huseyinhalitince huseyinhalitince

    Hi Huseyin,

    To doubt means to question the truth or possibility of something. To suspect means to have an idea about something or someone before getting all the facts. Suspect can also be synonymous with doubt, meaning to question the truth of.

    Paul doubts Jill’s sincerity.
    Paul suspects Jill’s sincerity is put on.
    Paul has no reason to doubt/suspect Jill’s sincerity.

    Anyway, I’ll make a lesson about confusing word pairs :)

    Hi Sophie,

    Specified is a past participle, meaning someone made it specific. Specific is a simple adjective.

      Then this sentence “All tourists must be part of an escorted group to specified locations.” Is it grammatically correct? or ‘specific’ should be used?

Excuse me , I have a question
if we have a verb has the same meaning of phrasal verb so why we use the phrasal specially most of time we cannot memorize the phrasal verbs !

Hi, Adam! Thank you for the lesson again. Quite helpful as usual. I will set my heart on improving my English until I speak it fluently.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. BUT I STILL CONFUSE ABOUT “SET AGAINST”. SET AGAINST MEANS “DETERMINED”OR”OPPOSED TO”. THAT IS EXACTLY CONTRARY MEANING.

Hi, Adam! I have a little bit misunderstanding in this sentence: The boss values loyalty, he is set against hiring employees from outside the company… Can you help me to understand 2 things: Does this sentence use passive voice? And why?

Much regards

I scored 10 out of 10. Thanks Adam for such a wonderful lesson. Now I think I’m not going to mess up using any of set phrasel verbs you have explained in this video.
The way you explain phrasel verbs sets your apart from the other teachers. The other teachers are good though.

Hi, Adam,
I really appreciate the fact that you are making a difference. Thanks a lot.
I wonder if you can make a lesson about the modal verb ‘WOULD’. I do understand some of its usage but not all.
I don’t understand like ‘would be doing’ sentence structure.

To recap, I copied the explanations as below. Taking notes while watching the video helped me to get a high score on the quiz. Taking notes also helped to listen carefully, i.e. concentration.
“Set back” means to “delay”.
“Set on” means “want very much” or “decided”.
“Set up (on a date)” means “arrange (a meeting)”.
To be “set against” mean to be “determined” or “opposed to”.
To “set apart” means to “distinguish”.
To “set aside” means to “keep separate”.
To “set fire” to something means to start a fire in it.
To “set foot in” a place means to enter it.
To “set off” means to “trigger”, “start”, or “cause to start”.
To “set the record straight” means to correct a misunderstanding or fix the wrong information.
