Thanks a lot!

Adam, I see your true colours ;)

Thursday, April 17th 2014

    Hi Pfalba, I didn’t quite get the meaning of that expression “see your true colours”. Could you explain it a bit to me?

    Do you refer to the fact that Adam sometimes colour when he occasionally makes embarrassing comments in the videos.

    RSVP

    Thursday, April 17th 2014

      Embarrasing ? Why ?

      For me he showed his nature (true colours) during a tickling episode.
      Cute and funny :)

      Thursday, April 17th 2014

        Hi, pfalba.
        I agree with you, in his avatar, for example, Adam seems so serious.

        But after watching so many of his lessons,that image just fades away and we can see that he is a really nice person.

        As always, he delivers useful and now colorful lessons. :) Thank you, Adam.

        Thursday, April 17th 2014

          I totally agree with Pfalba and Evaldo! ;)

          Tuesday, August 5th 2014

        Thanks Evaldo :)

        Thursday, May 1st 2014

        Thanks Pfalba :)

        Thursday, May 1st 2014

      Correction:

      Do you refer to the fact that Adam colourS when he occasionally makes embarrassing comments ON the videos???

      Saturday, April 19th 2014

        I can’t thinkcof any embarrassing comment, so I guess it’s a NO to your question.

        But see someone elses true colors means “see his real personality”.

        Wednesday, April 23rd 2014

      LOL.
      To show one’s true colours means to show how one is really like. Usually it’s used when someone lies about what type of person they are until a situation brings out their true personality.

      Pfalba used the idiom correctly, but maybe this isn’t the best example of when to use it. Unless, like Evaldo, he thought I was too serious before, but now understands I’m not too serious ;)

Hi Adam
I really wished I was that kind of guy who could see the world through rose-tinted glasses but unfortunately I Am Not:( but you are a great teacher Adam keep up the good work and I have a request could you please make a lesson on classroom language and by it I mean some vocabulary exchanged in classrooms between teachers and their students for instance when it comes to check the class attendance or during an exam session and exams assessment I know it sounds weird but I am a non-native English teacher and sometimes I find myself in an awkward position when I want to use classroom jargon, do we have something like classroom jargon:o

Thursday, April 17th 2014

Thank you, evrything was clear

Thursday, April 17th 2014

Idioms always make our talking more colorful and natural. They are useful tools that help us see to some good extent how language works.

It was a concise and interesting video-lesson

Have a great week Adam!!!

Thursday, April 17th 2014

    Thanks Regino. You too :)

    Thursday, May 1st 2014

Hi stranger
thanks for your support so let’s keep our fingers crossed!

Thursday, April 17th 2014

Thank you Adam. I like your lessons very much. But may I ask you to stay NEAR the inscriptions, you’ve written on the board please. They are helpful too.

Thursday, April 17th 2014

hi,
thank you very good lessons.

Thursday, April 17th 2014

Thanks Adam. I passed de quiz with flying colors!

Thursday, April 17th 2014

Thank you, Adam! This lesson was quite useful for me. I never head about “tickied pink” before. But other idioms I already knew.

Thursday, April 17th 2014

thank you!

Thursday, April 17th 2014

I didn’t know about colourful idioms so much. Thank you for your interesting and useful lesson, Adams :)

Friday, April 18th 2014

oops (><) I mistook your name! Sorry, Adam…

Friday, April 18th 2014

good exam and good examples

Friday, April 18th 2014

Thanks a lot
I need some help on explaining my presentation slides content like graphs, diagrams, tables and other kind of results
Also I get trouble when switching slide, starting new subject, concluding etc.
Please help me with words that are best to use as fillers and as joints in a presentation.

Friday, April 18th 2014

    Hi MorVafa,

    Rebecca -an EngVid teacher- made a video on how to make a successful presentation; you’ve got to see it.

    Regards

    Saturday, April 19th 2014

      … I’ve just checked it out MorVafa and the video-lesson is “How to Give a Presentation in English”.

      It gives you some useful tips on how to give a presentation.

      Please take also a look at the following free website:

      http://www.PresentationPrep.com

      All the best with your presentations MorVafa!!!

      Saturday, April 19th 2014

        Thank you so much Regino, the website has many good tips, but why not using them for making videos in engVid. An example could be explaining a simple chart.
        All I need is to learn how to make good connections between stuffs that appear as common in a presentation.

        Monday, April 28th 2014

          Hi MorVafa,

          I’ll see what I can do

          Thursday, May 1st 2014

Good job! Thanks!

Friday, April 18th 2014

    Wow that was nice lesson sir adam and it will help a lot to improve my english with flying colors :D

    Tuesday, May 6th 2014

Many Thanks

Friday, April 18th 2014

could you explain to me the difference between include,contain,involve,and consist?

Friday, April 18th 2014

    Hi Super Mario,

    Include — to make in a part of something (e.g. a group)
    Contain — to have within.
    Involve — to make part of (an action, discussion, etc)
    Consist — be made up of (parts… so a whole consists of its parts)

    These can all be used as synonyms depending on their function in the sentence. Of course, different contexts will require the use of one word over another. The best thing to do is check a dictionary and make sure thst the meaning you intend is conveyed by the best word.

    Hope that helps.

    Thursday, May 1st 2014

Thanks you so much.

Friday, April 18th 2014

that’s very nice to come back again,,you’re the best..

Friday, April 18th 2014

Great lesson! I think the examples in this lesson are a good way to undestand what mean each colour’s expression. Thanks for that.

Friday, April 18th 2014

So SEE THINGS IN BLACK AND WHITE and SEE THROUGH ROSE TINTED GLASSES means respectively See the world with pessimism and See the world with optimism?

Friday, April 18th 2014

    Hi,Graziela.
    When you see things through rose tinted glasses means you’re optimistic.
    But, see things in black and white means you are a practical person.

    Like when we say here in Brazil: comigo é preto no branco!

    Friday, April 18th 2014

      How about this explanation guys?

      (in) black and white MEANS in a way that makes people or things seem completely bad or good, or completely right or wrong:

      A: I don’t have enough money, but I’m going to buy it anyway.

      B: He sees things in black and white.
      C: Yeah, you’re right.

      Putting in your own words Evaldo,Is he practical?

      Have a great weekend!

      Saturday, April 19th 2014

        Buy something with not enough money does not seem “practical” to me.

        What I got from Adam’s explanation of “black and white”, and the Brazilian’s “preto no branco”, is; a person that is straightforward.

        Wednesday, April 23rd 2014

    preto no branco; sem lero lero; sem mais ou menos; é ou não é: See things in black n’ white.

    see you, little girl!

    Thursday, April 24th 2014

    Hi Grazisil,

    Some good answers here. I will add that to see things in black and white is not only practical, but it is much simpler (some people might say more realistic). Something is either A or it is B, not somewhere between (i.e., there is no grey). Like Evaldo said, more straightforward.

    Thursday, May 1st 2014

It’s fun, I like that!

Friday, April 18th 2014

The first two and the last one russians are using also.

Friday, April 18th 2014

Nice lesson Adam. I have a question. How do you say when someone is on blashed?.

Friday, April 18th 2014

    Do you mean blasted?

    Friday, April 25th 2014

      No. i said flushed. When my face turn red.

      Saturday, April 26th 2014

        Hi Luis,

        We say blush (blushed). He was so embarrassed he blushed red as a tomato.

        is that what you meant?

        Thursday, May 1st 2014

I love idioms.Thanks Adam :)

Friday, April 18th 2014

I forgot to wish you Happy Easter!

Friday, April 18th 2014

Hi Adam:
It’s my first time being here, and I’d say I’m very lucky of having your teaching. Your lesson is great! I believe it will help me get through difficulties with flying colours. I mean it’s definitely beneficial to understand native speakers more.
Thx a lot.

Saturday, April 19th 2014

It’s very interesting and instructive lesson.

Saturday, April 19th 2014

I personally think that Idioms are helpful and fun to learn. I never knew that there was idioms called coloured idioms but now that you taught me perfectly, I feel so glad that I have learned something. Thank you Adam!!!

Saturday, April 19th 2014

Tanks adam , very good video.

Saturday, April 19th 2014

Hello Teacher
I have a question what is the difference between of-course and obvious ?

Saturday, April 19th 2014

    Hi Gurinder,

    ‘Of course’ is called an interjection–it is an expression one says as a lead-up to something or as a response to something… it cannot be used by itself and is not really a part of the sentence structure itself. ‘obvious’ is an adjective and can be used in conjunction with a noun.

    Does this help?

    Thursday, May 1st 2014

It was fun!
Your lesson is very easy to understand.
It’s so nice!

Saturday, April 19th 2014

¡¡Great!! I got 9/9. I really like it!!

Saturday, April 19th 2014

many thanks to you!
100/100 again. now i’m tickled to death!

Sunday, April 20th 2014

Wonderful lesson, I got 10 with flying colors again. Although I have some worry in my mind now, I will try to seeing these things through rose-tinted glasses. If I can pass them, I will be tickled pink and must be painting the town red. Is the example correct above? Adam. Thanks a lot for your teaching, great teacher.

Sunday, April 20th 2014

Flying colours quiz

Sunday, April 20th 2014

Hi Adam, it’s me again.

I’ve got just one question about color idioms:

which are the correct expressions:

Blue/white COLLAR worker or Blue/white COLLARED worker?

The latter expressions are on the board as examples.

Thanks again.

Happy Eastern!!!

Sunday, April 20th 2014

    Hi Regino,

    Wow! I didn’t even notice I did that. It’s a mistake on my part. I apologize. It’s blue/white collar, not collared.

    Good eye.

Hello,

Adam you are the best person i ever seen. Your way to explain with nice examples… Voice is very clear to understand the details.

Thanks!

Thursday, April 24th 2014

Oh, I passed the quiz with flying collors! By the way, here in Brazil, we also have the expression “white-collared people”, but NOT in a positive way… In the past, I used to hear about “the white-collared crimes”!

Thursday, April 24th 2014

Yay… 100%… I didn’t know most of those idioms and I hadn’t heard them before. I hope I will remember them.

Thursday, April 24th 2014

Hi Mr.Adam

I would greatly appreciate your advice

Friday, April 25th 2014

Hi Adam,

Thank you so much.I’m fond of your perfect lessons and your method of explaining…
I have a question.
” The head of the company’s established his son in business,hasn’t he?”
In this sentense I can’t understand the place of the ” ‘s” .It concerns to the subject but “company” is followed by it.
How to understand this? Please explain.
Thanks very much in advance.

Friday, April 25th 2014

    Hi Anahit,

    The head of the company has established his son…

    It’s a contraction. usually we don’t use these in formal writing.

I luv idiom, but I didn’t pass it with flying color :(

Saturday, April 26th 2014

Good job

Saturday, April 26th 2014

Thanks a lot!

Saturday, April 26th 2014

My first lesson! Cool ;)

Saturday, April 26th 2014

Thanks Adam…

Saturday, April 26th 2014

That’s such an excellent lesson! Thanks a lot!

Saturday, April 26th 2014

Adam,explain me in details the difference in meaning between the two following sentences:
1. What DID you SEE?
2. What DO you SAW?
Is you explanation right for other similar sentences?(I mean using DO or DID with past and present verbs.)

Sunday, April 27th 2014

    Sorry!!! PLEASE and THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

    Sunday, April 27th 2014

    Hi Katrin,

    #1 is ok. #2 means what do you cut with a saw (a tool).

    In #2, if you mean saw as past tense of see then it doesn’t work.

    Thursday, May 1st 2014

      So I must use DID all the time asking about past?

      Saturday, May 3rd 2014

        hi Katrin,
        using DID, is the correct way to ask something about the past.

        Thursday, May 8th 2014

Thanks for the lesson!
I’ve got a lot of fun.

Monday, April 28th 2014

Thursday, May 1st 2014

I got 100:D but I did it intuitively.

Thursday, May 1st 2014

Thank you everyone. happy belated Easter :)

Regino noticed that I wrote blue-collared worker on the board. That is a mistake on my part. It should be blue-collar.

Sorry about that.

Thanks Regino.

Thursday, May 1st 2014

    Thanks a million Adam for your feedback. It really makes a big difference on your video-lessons.

    I have learned a lot from you and with you.

Hey I’d like to know when we should use, for example:
The door’s key
The door key
The key of the door
(In general, not only explaning this phrase)
Thank you =)

Friday, May 2nd 2014

Thanks

Friday, May 2nd 2014

Hi, Adam, you gave your class very well. But I missed the first question of the Quiz where I think that the owner was relieved to know about any kind of trouble in his restaurant. So, to pass through in the inspection wouldn’t be easy and he would stay tickled pink… Thanks!

Saturday, May 3rd 2014

It is an awesome lesson, such idioms make the Spoken language more interesting.

Thanks Mr. Adam

Saturday, May 3rd 2014

hey, I just want to say thank you, I have been studying english for 3 years, and I discovery that I didn´t know almost any idioms, now I´m taking some time to learn them, and you have been helped me a lot.

Monday, May 5th 2014

I laughed at “see through rose-tinted glasses”. I love it.

Hi friends i need to know that where the word “rather than ” is suitable to use

Wednesday, May 7th 2014

    hi Gopinath,
    ‘rather than’ is normally used when someone is talking about his/her preference. when you prefer something over the other, you use this expression.
    for example – i prefer going to school by bus ‘rather than’ walking all the way.

    hope it helps (y)

Sunday, July 27th 2014

Some times, I like with childern. I feel some of them are generally waiting to us. When they “see the green light”, they start playing with us.

Thursday, July 31st 2014

Most of the time, I tried to “see through rose-tinted glasses”. I believe that impossible is impossible. I think the huge difference between successful and unsuccessful poeple is aried from their view toward the problem.

Monday, October 13th 2014

thanks :) it`s a great lesson

Sunday, October 19th 2014

Thanks a lot, Adam! Very great lesson!! :)
But I’m afraid there is a little mistype in ‘blue/white colared worker’. There must be ‘coloured’ or ‘colored’, but not ‘colared’.

Tuesday, October 21st 2014

    No, “collar” is right! It refers to the kind of clothes workers wear. “Blue collar” = heavy-duty clothes that someone in the trades or a factory might wear, “white collar” = dress shirts, “pink collar” = jobs traditionally delegated to women, e. g. secretary.

    Wednesday, October 22nd 2014

nice ,thank you

Wednesday, October 22nd 2014

I really like this lesson teacher ^^

Wednesday, October 22nd 2014

My improvement tickels me pink; I don’t think to paint the town red for this reason.

Wednesday, October 29th 2014

I finished the quiz with flying colors, getting perfect score once again tickled me pink. This gives me the green light to paint the town red tomorrow because I learned new things again. Moving forward I’ll try to see things through rose-tinted glass and not always think in black and white, not dreaming of a white-collared job though. :3

Sunday, November 9th 2014

Thursday, December 4th 2014

Hello, everybody! I am a new comer to this site. And I have listened 3 teachers, and for the moment Adam is best. I’m going to continue. will see.

Saturday, December 13th 2014

hey Adam i passed the test with flying color.i mean with perfect score

Saturday, December 20th 2014

I got 6 of 9 it is not good but I will try every day to get full marks by all teachers of EngVid
Thanks Adam for you and for other teachers

Monday, December 22nd 2014

Hi, Adam. Thanks again for your lesson.

Adam, I have a question. I was raised listening to British English.( I have never been able to get the “accent,though)

But I have this rather embarassing problem.Ive
lived in the U.S.enough to notice how Americans
use the simple past instead of the present perfect. To tell you the truth, although I love
this language, I fell in love with it when I was thirteen, so I know a few things.
But I’d like to know your opinion, about this
issue. Do you think that the English language
will change so much as abolishing the Present
Perfect?
I feel oddly insecure when,I talk to some
Americans. An example of an embarassing situation.
I was in Memphis, and I asked a “lawyer” this question. It was about a movie.
” Have you seen A Few Good Men?”
and she asked me:”Where?” and laughed.

I can’t use the past tense instead of the present perfect. So, I’d like to know your
opinion about this.

Saturday, December 27th 2014

Geez,Adam. Will I have to wait for the approval of my comment, again? I’ve already waited for it
for ages.
You’ve already sent me things about the subject
I needed help.
Please, Adam, help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I need to learn more and more. And you are
the perfect teacher, the best I have ever had.

Incidentally, are there idioms using parts of
the body? I know five or six. I’d like to learn
more.

Saturday, December 27th 2014

Thank u Adam ur lessons always make me tickled pink and they make me see my English through rose-tinted glasses , and I’ve passed this quiz with flying coloures … So tonight am gonna paint the town red . :)
