Thanks Adam!
Your videos are helpful.
I have 2 questions.
1. What do ‘TURN BACK’ and ‘TURN INTO’ mean?
2. I’d be appreciated if you make a video of idiom ‘TURN’.
Thanks again.

Profile photo of Matilda03 Matilda03

    “turn back” means to stop something, and “turn into” means to become, to change sth to sth

    Profile photo of sec.nix sec.nix

    turn back, uhm, is like “betray”, that sort of kind. :)
    turn into means to change st/sb into st/sb.

    Profile photo of jessie mccarthy jessie mccarthy

    Hi Matilda,

    Anhlqn and Jessie gave good answer for turn into–it means transform something or someone into something else (the wizard turned the prince into a frog). It can also mean simply turn (the driver turned into the alleyway).
    Turn back means force someone to return where they came from (the police turned back traffic from the street where the accident occurred)(the fairy turned the frog back into a prince)

    Hope that helps.

    *turn down – make a sound or temperature lower. ex.) She turns down the heat.(turndown: reject)

      Profile photo of Adam Adam

    i can add something. Hopefully these can help you. :)
    turn out, of course, means pushing outside but also resulting, usually accidental results.
    it has another meaning. it’s like attendance.
    turn up, maybe, is somewhat similar to the third meaning of the phrasal turn out. in some cases it’s up to the situation to make a choice between them.

    You just need to turn captions on! You can find the button in the lower right side of the youtube video. Once you click it you can see the video and the subtitles too :)

Hi many many thanks for the class.
I have a doubt
They eat silently
They eat in silence What is the difference here?

Profile photo of pintuk pintuk

    Hi Pintuk,
    They can mean the same thing, but more specifically:
    They eat silently-they don’t make noises (forks clanging, chewing, etc.)
    They eat in silence- nobody speaks

    Does that help?

Hi! I have one question: a man is useful or usable? Which is correct?

Profile photo of obrazyasz obrazyasz

    Hi Obrazyasz,

    Both are correct:
    he is useful: he can help and do things.
    He is usable: he can be used to do things.

    Most common is useful, though. Usable might have a negative idea that the we don’t care about the man, but we can use him.

    Hope that helps.

Hi Adam. If I remember a previous lesson, I could say that the knockout I just saw across street turned me up. The problem is while I was looking at her, I bumped into a streetlight, you should see my nose…I now look like a bulldog.

Brrrr, I meant ‘I turned on’ when I saw her; I was like a dog in front of a bone.

    Please, don’t use “turn-on” and “bone” on the same sentence. :)

Turnover can be used to refer to profit?

Profile photo of audrysilva audrysilva

    Yeah, you’re right Audrysilva.

    Example: EngVid has an annual turnover of $64
    million. Believe it or not.

    Well,on second thought, it is Adam the one who has the last word on this.

    Have a great week!!!

    Profile photo of Regino Regino

    Hi Audry,

    Almost. More specifically, it can refer to sales or revenue. In other words, it refers to how much inventory came in and then went out again, or how many customers came in (to a restaurant for example), were served, and went out to let the next customers in.
    You can have a high turnover and low profit, depending on what you’re selling.

    Hope that helps.

Phrasal verbs always give real headaches to students especially those with different meanings like the ones taught in this lesson.

Practice makes perfect, this is the only way to master them.

You were clear, concise, and to the point, as usual Adam.

Profile photo of mpg97 mpg97

Hi Adam!
I really like your videos and the way you present them a lot. Thank you for that and all the videos I have watched and am going to watch.

But in this one it is quite upsetting to hear from you things like “a woman in a summer dress turns on men”. It’s not like she wears that for pleasing men’s sight at all, especially in hot summer. It is a big topic with lots of issues but this is not quite a place for an attempt to discuss them. However, anyway that is an example of objectification, barely as awful as that which many women are forced to face in everyday life, but still in the same category. Unfortunately this video kind of encourages men to think that a pretty strange woman is an object to stare at, to comment on, to ask for a date; almost none of them can place themselves to that position and understand what it is like. Some of the commentators above already wrote some disrespectful crap seeing nothing wrong in that.
As I said, and as you probably know, it’s a big topic, and even with that little I wrote, I can only hope that you read it, to say nothing of having any feedback from you.
Good luck.

Profile photo of st.sloth st.sloth

    Women in summer dress turn men(and some women
    also)on. They do it without conscious. Of course
    a lot of men get excited. It’s normal if You
    not ill.

    Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

    Hi St. Sloth,

    I appreciate what you wrote, and you’re right. But please keep in mind that We are here to learn a language, and that includes slang, the language you will not be able to avoid if you visit an English speaking country. My aim here is not to moralize but to instruct on the use of the language. I am sure there are many words and expressions that you might find offensive, but that does not take away from the fact that they exist and are used every day.
    When i taught international students in Vancouver, I made sure to include one lesson every session on the use of swear words (like f#$k, and so on, because students were using them inappropriately. I taught them these words not so that they can use them, but so that they could keep themselves out of trouble.
    Regardless, I apologize if you were offended.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Hi Adam,
      Well, first of all, you had not offended me and I don’t think anybody has ever been offended either by your great lessons or by the great teacher you are. :)
      Maybe I was overly impassioned since I happened to watch this video shortly after experiencing some unpleasant stuff which was the topic of the original comment. It’s just that the aspect of the video I was complaining about is like a seed, though itself very tiny and unharming, that can be developed in the most straightforward way and become a problem.
      I by no means want to interfere with your teaching but your word has so much power that you can not only make people a lot more proficient in English (which in my case is totally true; thank you again!) but also even a bit better persons (though, if I am not mistaken – damn my lame memory -, you have commented some cultural stuff in your videos).
      I might be too idealistic but I believe that we deserve to live in a better society and we should improve it.
      However, all of said has gone away from language itself. And returning back to that, I have gained only admiration and gratitude for your incredible work besides obvious improvement in English.
      In short, you are doing great and I wish you the very best.

Hi Adam.Thanks very much for your perfect lessons.
I have a question.
I can’t distinguish between such and so much in this sentence:”This is such tasty ice cream that I shall have another helping.”
Can I use so much instead such?

Thanks very much in advance.

Profile photo of Anahit Anahit

    Hi Freedom,

    No, you can’t use ‘so much’ in this sentence. So much is used to show quantity, and taste doesn’t have quantity, it has quality. You can say “This ice cream is so tasty (that) I will have another helping.” In this case you are using ‘so…that’ to show show high quality and result.

    Does this help?

      Yes ,it does.Thanks for your excellent explanation …I’ll never confuse.

In my opinion, Phrasal Verbs is one of the most difficult things to learn in English… There are many and because of that it’s almost impossible to memorize… And even after memorizing it’s not easy to use them properly. I’m always insecure when it comes to use a phrasal verb in a sentence… Anyway, thanks for the lesson, Adam.

Hi, Adam. Can you teach me about difference between some phrasal verbs. For example, stand by and pick up. Stand+by comes always together ” Stand by me!” , but there is a word uses some phrasal verbs, for example between ”pick” and ”up”, (like pick him up). I hope you’ll get what I mean and you’ll answer. Thanks.

‘turn out’ means ‘switch off the light’?

Thank you very much about all your great lessons, especially phrasal verb lessons. I can’t remember all the meanings by studying from textbooks. I’ll so excited if you make more lessons about this kind. Thank you again. :D

Hi Adam
You always say FAZAL VERBS (phrasal verbs) instead of FRAZAL VERB. Did I head it wrong or there is a tip on it?
Please explain more.
By the way, thanks for your best topic you choose

Happy New Year, Adam! It’s January 1st already.

Thank you for the very first lesson of 2015!

Copacabana beach looks like a beehive.They were
expecting 3 thousand people, but I think there
are 4 thousand. The rock groups are playing,
Brazilian pop singers and the “gringos” just
go crazy!

Despite the 7/1,( I hope you know what I mean,
it’s a very painful “subject” to talk about,
Brazilians do know how to celebrate these occasions. They’ll party until 10:00 in the morning.

Happy New Year again, my dear teacher.

Hi Adam,
I like the way you teach, after watching some of your classes, I started to feel that English schools have robbed me.

When you get a chance, please let me know if the following sentence make sense:

Turn over = to delivery ST. i.e He is refusing to turn over emails and phone records.

Thank you very much…

Thank you so much for your lession
I’m glad to know many phrasal verb of ” Turn”
I make a sentence and I don’t sure about that
Can you help me to correct it?
” I turn up that have a lot of money in my wallet.That’s not of mine”

Profile photo of Trangngocminh Trangngocminh

Hi Adam, can I ask you a question?
to turn up = to discover
An example: The diggers turned up (discovered) a skeleton.
In the video you say: I was reading through the book and an interesting piece of information turned up.
I can’t understand your sentence. Will you help me? Thanks a lot

Hey Adam

I’m going over this lesson, you know these amazing phrasal verbs, and I got an idea about what turn in, if you go to bed, comes from. Same way you turn in a rustler to the sheriff, you can turn yoursef to bed. Just an idea. Thanks for your comments. Have a nice day.

Hi Adam,

Just confused with a turnoff. Why did you say in the video that it comes without a dash and in the quiz, it is a noun with a dash?

What is correct?

turn in = submit
turn out = result
turn-off = something that disgusts, makes us lose interest
turn over = flip
turn on = excite
turn around = change (mind/ attitude)
turn to = approach, go to (when in trouble or feeling bad)
turn up = appear
turn in = go to sleep
turn down = reject
