Hello Adam. Good teacher!, but not the same for the pupil. I got 8/10. I must study again. You have turned on your class. It was really interesting !

Friday, January 17th 2014

    thx Adam..

    Saturday, January 18th 2014

thank you adam you are good teacher,you turned me on :)

Friday, January 17th 2014

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.

Friday, January 17th 2014

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

    Saturday, January 18th 2014

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

    Saturday, January 18th 2014

    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.

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

      Hello adam, thanks for good lessons, i have a similar question what dose it mean turn onto?

      Saturday, September 5th 2015

Hey Adam,I have watched this lesson before I am looking forward to your new video :)

Friday, January 17th 2014

Great lesson, it’s always helpful learning new phrasal verbs, thank you!

Friday, January 17th 2014

I got 5 correct out of 10. The quiz was really difficult for me. I was confused completely. Perhaps I didn’t understand correctly :( I’ll review your video and try the quiz when I can. Thank you, Adam :)

Friday, January 17th 2014

    Try to watch English/american movies(maybe with subtitles). These type of verbs often use in movies. I recommend comedies.

    Saturday, January 18th 2014

      Thank you for your recommendation, kishtuki :)

      Saturday, January 18th 2014

        Annyeong – Gon-bang-wa!
        I recommend an American sitcom, ‘Friends’. It’s about 6 friends(3 men and 3 women) and easy to understand. ^_^

        Saturday, January 18th 2014

          Thank you for your recommendation, Matilda03 :)

          Sunday, January 19th 2014

          Hey I am also watching friends at the moment I am just about to finish season-2. Its great to watch also if you are enjoying a corporate life you can watch Suits which turn you on.

          Sunday, January 19th 2014

          Thank you for your recommendation, vishnu6887. I hope to watch “Suits” when I can :)

          Sunday, January 19th 2014

      Good advice Kishtuki.

Saturday, January 18th 2014

Saturday, January 18th 2014

I would like you write down the definition of all the word because my listening is not good.

Saturday, January 18th 2014

    Hi! Theara,
    Here are definitions of phrasal verb ‘TURN’.

    *turn on – electricity is on. ex.) I turn on the light. (turnon: interest)

    *turn up – make a sound or temperature louder. ex.) He turns up the volume.(turnup: discover)
    *turn down – make a sound or temperature lower. ex.) She turns down the heat.(turndown: reject)
    *turn over – turn opposit side, rotating a cycle.
    *turn out – to push outside, to result
    *turn around – change
    *turn to – approach
    *turn in – submit = hand in, to inform on or deliver up, go to sleep.

    Good Luck! :-)

    Saturday, January 18th 2014

      Thanks for your work!

      Saturday, January 18th 2014

      What a wonderful work! Thank you so much, Matilda03 :D

      Saturday, January 18th 2014

      Thank you!!

      Wednesday, January 22nd 2014

      Good job Matilda. Thanks :)

      Sunday, February 2nd 2014

    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.

    Saturday, January 18th 2014

    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 :)

    Sunday, January 19th 2014

    There should be captions on the video Theara. But keep trying and your listening will improve :)

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

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

Saturday, January 18th 2014

    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?

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

Thanks Adam.
Your lesson is always useful for me.

Saturday, January 18th 2014

thank you. now I can understand American people good, 

Saturday, January 18th 2014

I love teacher Adam :) He speaks so clear and well that he gives me the illusion to know English!
Thanks teacher!

Saturday, January 18th 2014

Thanks Adam

Saturday, January 18th 2014

Great lesson Adam.

Saturday, January 18th 2014

great lesson, I’ve got 8 and I think I am going to retake the quiz again

Saturday, January 18th 2014

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

Saturday, January 18th 2014

    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.

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

      Thanks so much Adam

      Sunday, February 2nd 2014

ohhhhhhhh i’ve just got 9/10 because the one thing i didn’t read with care. Now i do regret because i could have got the highest point. I still remember that last time i received 10 points. I am so disappointed about myself as many times i’ve tried to be more careful not only in studying but in life as well. :(

Saturday, January 18th 2014

    We’re all human Jessie :) Don’t be too hard on yourself.

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

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.

Saturday, January 18th 2014

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

Saturday, January 18th 2014

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

    Monday, January 20th 2014

      Oh, oh… sorry for my poor put together joke,
      turns out I should have said “in the same sentence”,
      not “on the same sentence”. That’s a turnoff. :(

      Monday, January 20th 2014


        Sunday, February 2nd 2014

    lol. Be careful Patple ;)

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

Interesting lecture! Thank sir.

Saturday, January 18th 2014

Thanks you. excellent lesson!

Saturday, January 18th 2014

The quiz turned out better than I thought! I got 9/10. Thank you, teacher Adam! :)

Saturday, January 18th 2014

For me a little too hard. I am motivated to get down to work.

Saturday, January 18th 2014

    Go for it Belarmin

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

Hi Adam, I absolutely adore your lessons… and your personality ;). I found your lessons absorbing and useful ;) Thanks

Saturday, January 18th 2014

    Thank you :)

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

quite useful

Saturday, January 18th 2014

Thank u

Saturday, January 18th 2014

Turnover can be used to refer to profit?

Saturday, January 18th 2014

    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!!!

    Sunday, January 19th 2014

    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.

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

Hi again :) I got 7 correct out of 10. Improved a little! Thank you, Adam :D

Saturday, January 18th 2014

    Come on Happy04!!! It can’t be that bad!!!
    We must try to learn from our mistakes.

    Little by little we will go the extra mile.
    Putting into practice what we have learned will make a big difference.

    Have a great week!!!

    Sunday, January 19th 2014

      Thank you for your advice, Regino. Don’t worry. I will review Adam’s video and try the quiz again when I can :)

      Sunday, January 19th 2014

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.

Thanks for this video-lesson.


Sunday, January 19th 2014

    well said Regino :)

Hi I’m an ESL 2 student, and you’re videos are so helpful for me, so I decided to watch one everyday.
I’d like to upload a video about exits letters, because one of my problems that I have a little thick accent with the letter r.

Monday, January 20th 2014

    Hi Ahmad,

    I’m not sure what exits letters are. But don’t worry about accent–focus on pronunciation. :)

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

Hi,thanks for all teachers.
This lesson help us to understand slang language.
Realy thanks alot for Adam.

Monday, January 20th 2014

Thank a lot .

Monday, January 20th 2014

Great Teacher!!

Monday, January 20th 2014

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.

Monday, January 20th 2014

    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.

    Tuesday, January 28th 2014

    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.

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

      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.

      Monday, February 3rd 2014

I watched in a movie that when you applied for a school and they don’t accept you, you may say “They turned me down”.

Monday, January 20th 2014

    That’s right Quibbler. It means to reject.

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

I got 9 out of 10. I know it’s nothing unusual but the mistake which I made was very funny for me. :D In the fourth question I read „matters” instead of „mattress” so I wasn’t able to understand it and I tried to guess, /I’m not lucky/.

Tuesday, January 21st 2014

    lol. You’ll get it next time Setkax.

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

hello teacher thanks for this vedeo , it’s very helpful,I got 3 out of 1O ,but before watching the vedeo .

Thanks for this lesson, phrasal verbs turn me off usually.

Wednesday, January 22nd 2014

Thank you Adam.

Wednesday, January 22nd 2014

Thank you! It very useful lesson for me. I will review this video in next time!

Thursday, January 23rd 2014

It was a great lesson, Adam. Thank you. I was out of Engvid for a while, because my internet accesses… I think I’ve missed a lot… It is so good to be here again!

Thursday, January 23rd 2014

    Good to have you back Celia :)

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

Saturday, January 25th 2014


Sunday, January 26th 2014

Thanks Adam

Monday, January 27th 2014

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.

Monday, January 27th 2014

    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?

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

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

      Wednesday, February 12th 2014

Hard lesson but . . . useful!!!, 70%, . Thanks Adam.

Monday, January 27th 2014

Hi Adam!
I didn’t study English for a couple of years. I gave it up because of my work and one more reason that I haven’t find a suitable place of learning English on the Net until I found you and engvid.com. You really turn me on now. Thank you very much of what you have done for free.

Monday, January 27th 2014

Thank you Adam!

Tuesday, January 28th 2014

this what i was looking for and i think if i keep watching and lestining to what is on this nights my english language will be improved.

Wednesday, January 29th 2014

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.

Wednesday, January 29th 2014

    Keep practicing Janilza :)

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

I did 100% Thank you .

Thursday, January 30th 2014

thanks, Adam. I have some advice

Friday, January 31st 2014

    to you. I hope you can make your board writting more specific. Give us some key words of the new vocabulary.
    it seems to me that a specific note will helpful when review it.

    Friday, January 31st 2014

      Will do Quanspace.

      Sunday, February 2nd 2014

thank you very helpful.
i think turn over may mean finish or game over too is that right?

Friday, January 31st 2014

    Hi Wael,

    I’ve never seen it used that way, actually. You might be thinking of turn in.

    Sunday, February 2nd 2014

      Thanks Adam for the great support.

      Monday, February 3rd 2014

Thanks everybody :)

Sunday, February 2nd 2014

Thursday, February 13th 2014

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Hi Mr. Adam, thank you very much for this amazing lesson. In fact, I used to consider Phrasal Verbs as a big knot, which means a difficult problem that I cannot solve easily. And now,fortunately, I feel that I have to get them by heart, step by step. Thanks again :)

Actually, they are so beautiful to use them in speaking and writing English as well.
Thank you Mr.ADAM.

Wednesday, March 26th 2014

Excellent! I asked myself many times what’s the best way of learning English phrasal verbs. I liked the lesson and I’m gonna turn to EngVid for the help in the future as well.

Lovely lesson Adam.
I can watch and watch all your lessons and never get tired. You are so easy to understand but if you really want to use these phrasal verbs in your conversations you need practice a lot.

Thanks Adam…

Wednesday, May 21st 2014

Thanks teacher, it’s so cool. I hope one day I become like you in English language.

Thursday, May 22nd 2014

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.

still confusing about these phrasal verbs.

Tuesday, June 10th 2014

Teacher!, turn away?

Wednesday, June 11th 2014


‘turn out’ means ‘switch off the light’?
I saw like that on that page’http://www.advanced-english-grammar.com/phrasal-verb-turn.html’.

I think ‘switch off’ means ‘turn off’.
Please, explain me

Best regards,

Dear Adam, than you very much for your lesson. You said that ‘turnoff’ is writing like this. But in your test it is like ‘turn-off’ = something that disgusts, makes us lose interest. What is really correct? Thank you for your answer if you will read my comment. Helen.

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

Tuesday, December 23rd 2014

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…

Monday, February 27th 2017

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”

Friday, March 3rd 2017

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

Friday, March 17th 2017

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.

Sunday, October 22nd 2017

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?
