You've never learned phrasal verbs like this before! In this video, you'll learn the ideas behind phrasal verbs with the word "down" in them. You'll learn "close down", "bring down", "shout down", and many more. Most importantly, I always want you to learn the hidden meanings of words so that you can understand them when you hear them out of context, in a way you haven't seen them before. I'll go over examples for how these phrasal verbs are used in conversation and we'll practice using them together on the whiteboard. Then test your understanding with the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/down-phrasal-verbs-in-english/
Indeed, I really don't know how I should praise u all teachers . there is no any single word which can explain and show my feelings to u .but I m trying to say something about all teachers that u all are spectacular and brilliant mentors .Ur way of teaching really fascinating and very clear
James, you're right! this method is the best to learn phrasal verbs, I didn't need to translate to my native language to understand, It was very easy to get the idea. JAMES, AWESOME AS ALWAYS!!! thank you very much.
Even i've always accepted it, "sit down" for me is a pleanasm because we can't sit Up ! In France we have an amusing phrase only sounding pleonasms about down and up '
Si tu veux monter des cendres, descends mon thé";
it plays with Monter/descendre and vice-versa ; the English translation, of course doesn't work well "If you want to bring up ashes, bring down my thea"
okay I think I got it. However, what about this sentence: ,,I am down with you." heard that quite often, always in relation to agreeing with sb. I can't associate this sentence with downward movment or decrease or stopping or ending. Can sb clear up? 🙄
Melina U. It is almost always positive, and in agreement with the original speaker. Another example: Man 1 says: "My father says that I must find someone to help me with learning English." Man 2 says: "I am down with you", which means "I will help you learn English."
Hi, I'm from Russia and I wanna tell u thank u!
Since I started watching ur videos my level of English has been really increased by u! And now I can perfectly watch ur videos without any subs :)
Thanks, just what I was looking for!
In my opinion starting with the preposition is far better, because it makes you think in English and you could come up with a phrasal verb that you haven't learned before, all by yourself! Starting with a verb and learning all the associated phrasal verbs is just dictionary-ordered memorization.
Thank you for a great lesson, you focused on how to use "down" with verbs, but I have a question about the word down. I often hear people in movies say "I'm down." after they are asked some questions. I just don't get the meaning of that. I'd appreciate if you could teach me the meaning and how to use it in proper ways. Thank you
