Language level

Intermediate: B1


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 ?

Thank you Kirk

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.


helpful videos

Thanks for making videos. They're interesting, so funny and useful. But Videos that have teacher teach us - don't have transcripts. Hopefully, you can help me. Thanks!

Hello Trongsaysin,

Thank you for the suggestion, and I'm glad you like the videos! We provide transcripts for the videos designed as listening practice, not for the grammar explanations, which are similar to what you might hear in class. However, we'll bear your suggestion in mind for the future.


Best wishes,
