I prefer videos with subtitles in English. Do you have any?

There are several videos with scripts on our site. Check out the category Video & Sripts.

That’s great, Thais! So glad you liked it!

By the way Tim, Is  it “back up” a synonyn of “back off”?
Thank you!

They are similar, Vera, but have *slightly* different meanings.

“back up” simply means to move backwards; however, “back off” has a stronger (more negative) meaning:

==> to stop being involved in a situation, usually in order to allow other people to deal with it themselves:
/She started to criticize me, then she suddenly backed off./
/Just back off and let us do this on our own, will you?/

==> to move backwards away from someone, usually because you are frightened:
/I saw the knife and backed off./

(From dictionary.cambridge.org)

What nice video!I’ve got all phrasal verbs. Hugs

Thank you, Vera! Good job!

Come on, settle down guys!

Yes, settle down!


Thanks, Sousa!

Thanks, I love it!

Hi Tim, I often hear your podcasts and today it seams like you’re a bit sad. Usually you’re more cheer (this is right to say? Or its cheer up? Help me)

Hello, Sergio. You can say that I am usually more cheerful. I think I was more nervous in the first ones. 😀
