Said Serbilind (9 months ago)
for the Germans and the Dutch. this off particle is very similar to the german -ab and the Dutch -af. scare off = af+schrikken, ab+schrecken round off = af+ronden, ab+runden just checked the etymology dictionary and saw that this "off" is originally from Old High german -aba

what a good explanation Luis , that example was very nice .
Luis Fernandez (1 year ago)
round off is when you're talking about an estimated value, for example when you're in a math test and your result is 4,56, one usually uses one decimal so you will round off to 4,6 you will estimated or truncate the number by one smaller.

0:31 You were wrong! You said "I'm quite pissed off" and you needed to say "rather pissed off" because the idea of "pissed off is negative! Quite=Positive Ideas Rather=Negative Ideas.
Christian Agravante (2 years ago)
hey you pissed me off. haha, don't worry, that was only a joke. thanks for this ,keep it up.
wong annie (2 years ago)
your teaching is so constructive and clear to a non-native speaker! And the idea of knowing particles rather than the verbs phrase is agreeable!

Hello, James. How are things with you? Thank you so much for the lovely videos! By the way, any team in the world can beat the Brazilan soccer team. Definetely we're not the best ones at soccer anymore! LOL! The World Cup in Brazil was such a dreadful thing when it comes to our economy, corruption, political unrest, anyway... It was just a disaster. I wonder how lucky the other candidates were when they 'missed out' the opportunity of having such a thing held in their countries. We all wish all that money could be spent in Education and Health and Public Transportation and Infra Structure....and so many other things...... Thanks again Greetings from Brazil

I set off in the morning. My wife scares me off to go to work. My boss tells me off all the time and threatens to write me off. I am so pissed off to the point that I want to jump off the bridge then it came the brilliant idea of just making off with the company's money. I become rich and all my colleagues would say how could he pull that off?
Ansha Smith (3 months ago)

I\'m not sure but ,if anyone else is searching for mother of bride speeches examples try Barkola Mother Bride Blueprint (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? Ive heard some decent things about it and my colleague got amazing results with it.
Luna (3 years ago)
I don't have trouble understanding what they mean, and even if I do I can just look them up online. What I have trouble with is knowing when to use them or how to construct them. Like when I learn a new verb, how would I know if that verb is used alone or in phrasal verb form. For example the verb "clean"; It can be used alone or in phrasal verb form "clean up"; But wtf is the difference? I never got that. The verb "close"; I always though I could just use it like "close the door", but once I heard someone say "do you want me to close it up?" (meaning a door) and I'm like holy fuck this is so confusing. This is why I'm always afraid to use verbs because I never know if I'm using them right ;_; And I haven't found anyone who can help me or has had the same problems.
Ibrahim Alımcı (3 years ago)
take from me as much as that. i have same trouble but i have an idea too. i think, when they use phrasal verb to define same mean without phrasal verb they actually want to emphasize what they say. its my theory.

Himanshu Rawat (4 years ago)
Hi ! James,Himanshu from India. Firstly many thanks for teaching on line. Love your videos. I have trouble using` would`. sometimes we use it for present tense , such as : I would go there instead of I will go there. Would you make a video on this, pls.
Sérgio Luz (4 years ago)
C'mon, Female Canada Soccer Team is great! =) I agree, your explanation is really clear, and makes curious about something. Back here in Brazil people use the expression "making off" refering to scenes of a film making, e.g. instructions of the director, make up, etc. I have searched the web and only the meaning you give in your explanation. Does this expression make any sense in English? Is there any term for this sort film about the film? Thanks, and congratulations.
