These days, l am listening Trump' speech . So fantastic when understanding English. It opens my mind. I don't understand much but I love him. I arm to study English more and more. It is really good.

Hi everybody .
I have a wondering about if I can say (try on them ) instead if (try them on ) ???

Hello Subhi Jleilaty,

'try on' is a separable phrasal verb. One of the characteristics of separable phrasal verbs is that when they have a pronoun as an object, the pronoun goes between the verb ('try') and the particle ('on'). So that means in this case, 'try them on' is the correct form.

All the best,

Could you explain me the meaning of Anti Fashion, please ?

hi there
I am studing English about 1 year .
I think your method for teaching english is very good but nobody can teach us as a Iranian peopel except a countryman teacher who has lived in a English language country because your language has got a lot of expressions as persian language so we need a teacher who knows our language very well. in Iran mr mirzaee is of this teacher maybe he is the best teacher in Iran I think first of all students should find a good teacher in their country who English is not his mother tongue but he or she can speak fluently and knows alot about YOUR culture
after that they can understand your studies better, I should mention that it's just my opinion.
