      Sorry, but I didn’t get what you mean… Do you want to know if it was another person and not myself who took the quiz? I really did not undesrtand you question…

      Monday, May 27th 2013

      Sunday, March 30th 2014

Thanks! I did very well in this lesson!

Saturday, May 25th 2013

Thank you for so useful lesson, Adam!
Only one question: the 9th question in the test.
“Adam: What happened to the pizza?”
“James: I ate it.”
“Adam: _________ it?!”

Why the option with “The whole” isn’t appropriate?
I can understand, that the question is about the complete “it” – the whole pizza, can’t I?

Saturday, May 25th 2013

    I’m not sure if I’m right, but try to think about pieces of that pizza. You know, you don’t eat a pizza as one piece, you just take piece one by one and eat them. So, “all of it” means that you ate all the pieces of the pizza.

    Saturday, May 25th 2013

      Thank you for answering!

      Monday, June 10th 2013

    Adam explained that you need to add “of” with a pronoun.So, you can say “the whole pizza” but you must say ” the whole of it” or ” all of it”.

    Sunday, May 26th 2013

      Thank you for answering!
      I missed this point.

      Monday, June 10th 2013

        You are welcome!

        Monday, June 10th 2013

      I agree.You’re very helpful!Thanks a lot! I missed this point too.

      Monday, June 17th 2013

      You can’t say (the whole of it) only you can say (all of it)

      Tuesday, April 1st 2014

    Hi, I think that the answer is in your question.
    You wrote “I can understand, that the question is about the complete it – the whole pizza”. So, if there was the word “pizza” at the end the answer would have been “the whole” because you would have been talking straight about the pizza but as there was a “it” that references to the pizza, you have to use “All of” that references to all of the pieces of the pizza. The point is that you must use the combination “whole + exactly what you are talking about” and there’s never a “of” after whole because it’s the opposite of the meaning. Whole = Complete | of = part of.
    Examples : I ate some of the pizza. I ate a part of the pizza. I ate 7 slices of the pizza.
    BUT : I ate the whole pizza.
    Imagine as if whole was an adjective of what you’re about to say.

    I hope I could help you as much as explaining to you helped me. I hope you understand the whole text not just a part of it.

    Sunday, May 26th 2013

      Or, Merely “It” is not a package then we shouldn’t use to WHOLE.

      Sunday, May 26th 2013

      Thank you!

      Monday, June 10th 2013

    I think that Adam have no sure if James has eaten the whole pizza. Adam asked about ALL THE PIZZA. Then, in the following question, James explain that he ate THE WHOLE PIZZA.”

    I think this.

    Sunday, May 26th 2013

      I guess that Adam have no sure if James had eaten the whole pizza. Adam asked about ALL THE PIZZA. Then, in the following question, James explain that he eat THE WHOLE PIZZA.

      I correct the grammar of my comment.

      Sunday, May 26th 2013

        People DO NOT “have sure”, people are sure!

        Different from Portuguese!

        Best regards.

        Monday, May 27th 2013

          Nice to meet you, Thalinho!! Thank you for your help.
          Then, how I say “””don’t have sure.”””… When I have 90% of sure? Thank you.

          I know this question is beside the point, sorry. But I need learn this.

          Monday, May 27th 2013

          almost sure?

          Monday, May 27th 2013

          U can say :
          …I’m not totally sure
          …I’m not quite sure
          …I’m almost sure

          U have 2 use ” I’m not sure ” not ” I don’t have sure ” .
          :) Glad if I could help!

          Monday, May 27th 2013

          Thanks, Fattima.
          Your explaination was very good. Now, I’m sure about when and how I should use my sure. :)).
          All the best for you.

          Monday, May 27th 2013

          It’s a pleasure man, in this case you must say I’m not sure or I’m not completely sure.

          In order to be more accurate you can say: I’m 90% sure =)

          Monday, May 27th 2013

      Thank you for answering!

      Monday, June 10th 2013

    I agree with you, i have written the same, but it seemed wrong :(((
    And in another question: danced all the time, because he explained that all the time- stops, does, and it is impossible to dance without stopping, that is why i wrote all the time, they danced, drank, maybe talked, because “all the time is correct ” i consider..

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

      You said correctly. I agree with you on this case. Nobody can non-stop dance the whole time.
      I think that guy was really crazy.

      Wednesday, May 29th 2013

        :) you would be surprised what some people do for a good time.

        Sunday, June 9th 2013

          I think that they didn’t dance the whole time, just all of the time (they drank, went to the bathroom, sat down and talked). I just like the way Adam finds his way out of the situation and does not admit that he made a mistake when creating the test. But you are my favorite engvid teacher and I forgive you. DON’T YOU STOP MAKING VIDEOS. watching a video and taking a quiz is so much better than studying grammar books.

          Wednesday, September 3rd 2014

      i also did the same…. :O and the correct ans is Whole time…

      Friday, June 21st 2013

    Hi Maxim,

    there are some good replies here. I will add that you could say “the whole thing.” Thing being the pizza, and suggesting the complete item. ‘it’ here is a referent to the pizza that was mentioned, so we are asking how much of it, what part of it, etc. Mainly the ‘of’ is the key word here though.

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

      Thank you!

      Monday, June 10th 2013

excellent lesson ! Thanks a ton Adam, wish u all the best :)

Saturday, May 25th 2013

All the lessons were taught by you,very interesting,The whole lesson for today is very excellent.Thanks Adam.

Saturday, May 25th 2013

I had problem only with the “club” question. I just can’t imagine people dancing for 5 hours straight. xD

Saturday, May 25th 2013

    Me too!!!! How can it be possible?????

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    Me too! I thought people were dancing, but sometimes they stopped to drink something or to go to the bathroom…

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    well… keep in mind that people do tend to exaggerate when telling stories, but then again, there parties where people just won’t stop, or at least feel like they never stopped dancing.

    Anyway, people are more likely to say that than all the time.
    :)

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

Thanks Adam for this useful video.
Can you do a video about how to use comma and semicolon?

Saturday, May 25th 2013

Adam, you said “I think that many native English users don’t use the past perfect (simple or continuous) correctly because they might not really know it very well” — could you please give me some examples, I mean what people say and what should say?

Saturday, May 25th 2013

    Ok. Someone will tell you they went to Disney World. You’ll ask if it was their first time. They’ll answer “Yeah, I’ve never been there before.” which technically means they still haven’t been there.

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

Adam, I have also a question concerning sounds. I often see words written in this way: chillin’ , walkin’ , makin’ , etc. Normally, the “ng” sound is represented by “ŋ” sign. When a word is written in that way — n’, is this the same sound as in the case of “ng”, or is it a true “n” sound represented by “n” in IPA?

Saturday, May 25th 2013

    Hey, Morfik, how do you do? Fine? Hope so!

    Man, the words that are written in -ing form without being in -ing form (SING) for instance, receives that “ŋ” phonetic sound, but the words in -ing form DO NOT, they are pronounced as an “n” phonetic sound!

    See ya, dude.

    Sunday, May 26th 2013

      I think you are wrong. Take a look at this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_yuDRfZ3X4

      No matter if “ng” is in “sing” or in “doing” — “ng” is “ng” and is pronounced as “ŋ”. And I’m asking what exactly happens when a word is written without “g” like doin’.

      Sunday, May 26th 2013

      Hi Thalinho, you blew my mind with your explanation ^^
      Your explanation looks like a loop. Anyway if you meant what I understood I don’t agree. The verb “sing” is represented with a “ŋ sound” as well as the gerund of the verbs which ends in “ing”. Try using websites specialized in this matter.

      Sunday, May 26th 2013

        I didn’t mean to be rude ! I read myself and realized that I could be misunderstood. So I apologize.

        Sunday, May 26th 2013

          I know you didn’t mean to be rude!

          Sunday, May 26th 2013

          It’s amazing the power that words can have without sounds or gestures to balance them out.

          Good note Carlos :)

          Sunday, June 9th 2013

    I would say that it is a true ‘n’ sound. That’s part of the point of it I would guess. Kind of hard to get the idea across with words, but imagine doin’ as do-win, as in “What’s doin’?” Nothin’, Chillin’

    It’s all about shirt and sweet.
    Does that help at all?

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

      short and sweet

      Sunday, June 9th 2013

      So, basically if it is the true n sound, people will understand me without a problem when I say do-win, right?

      Monday, June 10th 2013

        Native speakers would. Non-natives? hard to say.

        Monday, June 10th 2013

      Yeap, Therefore, it’s a true “n” sound! I guess I was right, again!

      Thanks Teacher!

      Tuesday, June 11th 2013

Thank you. It is very helpful lesson for me.

Saturday, May 25th 2013

Fantastic explanation!
Thank you very much.

Sunday, May 26th 2013

dance the whole time.that means (dance continuously without stopping and resting )I think this person has excellent Heath)question #3.

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    :) or a good imagination

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

Την καλημέρα μου απο την Αθήνα!!
I don’t think someone can watch a movie without to see and something else except on the screen and must be very healthy to dance whole the time. Of course i can do it if i’m sleeping whole the time at the cinema or if i’m drunk at the pub. I don’t know am i correct? Please if you have a little time correct me. I’m not a writer but a simple waiter.

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    I think you hit the nail on the head. I’ve been to parties where I had a few too many drinks and didn’t even notice time passing. :)

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

      Thank you for your comments and cheers with a glass of wine full of Greece.

Thanx for lession,
What is the difference between All of the students went home and All students went home

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    I think “all students” means the students from any place.”All the students” (“of” is not necessary, Adam explained it) means that they are a part of a group – for example “all the students in my class”

    Sunday, May 26th 2013

    Hi Sheri,

    Arinamg gave a good answer. Remember what ‘the’ does- it specifies a particular group or person, or thing, etc. All of the students, means a particular group of. All students, means in general. A lot depends on the context.

    Does that help?

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

I got 70 scores.
It was not easy to understand the whole thing what you explained in the video.
Thank you for your good teaching.

Sunday, May 26th 2013

9 out of 10, as always, make me think, thanks Adam.

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    Adam, I know I can be thorn in one’s side, but how about make a lesson about semicolon and other punctuation marks? I meant, for example Russian’s rules of punctuation marks are quite different from English.
    It can be kind of silly but it will be useful for everybody, at least, I believe in that. ;)

    Sunday, May 26th 2013

      Hi Poslegg,

      Not silly at all. Actually, Have had a few requests for it lately. I will try to get it to you soon.
      :)

      Sunday, June 9th 2013

        Thank you Adam. I will look forward to it.
        P.S. Adam, you are rock! Keep it up mate.

        Monday, June 10th 2013

          lol. Thanks. Not sure if it’s what you meant, but the expression is ‘you rock’ (you are a rock means you are strong (mentally, emotionally))

          Monday, June 10th 2013

          Yea…, It was my mistake.))I hadn’t had checked the text before I sent it.

          Monday, June 10th 2013

          *I hadn’t checked the text before I sent it.

          The bad day for my grammar.))))

          Monday, June 10th 2013

I am a newbie in the study

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    welcome :)

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

Thank you Adam!
I got 9 out of 10. I disagree with my mistake in number 3, though. I think both all the and the whole can be used. They have a subtle difference in meaning, if you say all the it means they stopped sometimes, and if you say the whole it means they didn’t stop at all. But people do stop sometimes :)
BTW, can I please request a video? I don’t really understand all the difference between it and this, these words have so close meaning, and it seems that sometimes I misuse them.
I’m really looking forward to watch your video!

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    Oops, the last sentence is supposed to be “I’m really looking forward to watching your video”

    Sunday, May 26th 2013

      Mann, you rock, Haha

      Monday, May 27th 2013

    Hey, Vlalimpiev, how are you, again? rs

    Man, we use the pronoun “it” as indefinite pronoun in sentences that we don’t mention the name of it such as:

    » let’s think there’s someone at your door and you cannot see that person/people, you would probably ask: Who is (it)? In this case “it” stands for that person/people you can’t see…

    » You can also use “it” for inanimate subjects such as: animals and objects.

    Look, it’s my wallet, do not touch it! (object)
    It’s my dog, its name is Bob! (animal)

    However, you can use the demonstrative pronouns this/that/these/those in order to emphasize something…

    » Who is this? (it’s near you)
    » Who is that “in blue jeans”? (it’s far from you)

    BUT, in my point of view you can only use demonstrative pronoun when you can see the thing, otherwise it wouldn’t be DEMONSTRATIVE pronoun, rs.

    I might be wrong though.

    Hope it helps, see you around!

    Monday, May 27th 2013

      Hey Thalinho, how are you doing,
      can you tell me what is the difference among the sentences listed below, I mean when should I say each one of them:
      “I reviewed the revised copy”
      “I have reviewed the revised copy”
      “I had reviewed the revised copy”
      Awaiting your sooner reply..Thanks

      Sincerely,
      Taha

      Monday, May 27th 2013
        Monday, May 27th 2013

        Hey Taharaad,
        Check the difference:
        I reviewed the revised copy – you just put it as it is, your highlight the past but it doesn’t tell whether you make something with that copy or not;
        The second one tells us that it is in the present now. For example I have reviewed the revised copy it means that I just have reviewed and for example I am doing nothing now;
        The third one tells us that I reviewed copy before that something happened.
        I had reviewed copy before you sent me a copy
        Hope it helps.
        To be simple
        Past Simple tells that sth happened but what was after that you can only guess
        Pr Pf tells the result that active now
        Past Perfect tells the something that happened before another action.
        Have to check that out.

        Monday, May 27th 2013

          Great explanation, poslegg. Thanks for explaining!

          Hope you, Taha, might have learned!

          See you around!

          Monday, May 27th 2013

      Thank you very much, you really clarified that difference for me!
      As I understand, I can say both ‘How much does this/that cost?’ and ‘How much does it cost?’, but if I’m pointing at something, it’s more common to use the first sentence?

      Monday, May 27th 2013

        You can use either if it. Just remember that you can use the pronoun “it” for singular and plural forms, this/that for singular form and these/those for plural forms…

        If you are going to buy 2 apples,3 pineapples and 1 watermelon you’d probably say: how much are these?

        Got it?

        See ya around.

        Monday, May 27th 2013

          Yeah, thank you!

          Tuesday, May 28th 2013

          Just say the words, butty!

          Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    Hi Vlalimpiez,

    I’ll accept your argument for number 3. It is all about context at the end of the day. Just keep in mind, most people will say the whole in this case to ‘build up’ the story.

    As for it vs. this, I will get on that. I know that it can be confusing.
    :)

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

I got 30 scores. Tks Mr Adam. :v

Sunday, May 26th 2013

Adam, is there an option to say “the whole group of my friends came”?

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    Hi Spiridolga,

    yes, but you wold have to say ‘my whole group of friends came.’

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

it’s difficult but I understood a lot. thank you Adam, you’re very profissional.

Sunday, May 26th 2013

Hi Adam
I like so much your lessons. Thank you so much.
But engVid becomes too much boring because every time I click on the progression bar I’m redirected to an other page which is an ad for “Woozgo”.
Is there any setting in my browser to prevent such a trouble?
Best regards,
Jean-Paul

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    I will look into that JP

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

      Thank you so much Adam for the reply. But I must say I have fixed the problem. Actually I have deleted all the cookies on my hard disk. By then everything is OK.
      I regret to have bothered you with such an issue.
      At any rate your lessons are very nice : you speak so clearly that I understand 100% of what you say.
      Many thanks.

Thank, Adam. I’ve watched all the your lessons and i’ve understood the whole lesson about “whole” and “all”.
See you! Thank you!

ㅠㅠ.
hi.Adam.
It’s difficult for me to get this lesson.
If it is right:The whole class needs to~~.I think the following sentence should be changed
“Whole cities were destroyed.
;Whole city was destroyed.”
COULD YOU EXPLAIN THIS, PLEASE?

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    Hi Ea,

    1- “Whole cities were destroyed.
    2- “THE whole city was destroyed.”

    In 1, we are talking in a general way without saying exactly which cities. In 2, we are talking about one particular city, so need ‘the.’

    Does that help?

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

Hi Adam,
At the beginning of this lesson, can you please explain why don’t you wrote “I studied all the time”?
I feel a litte bit confused about this.
Thanks!

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    Hi Rocketeer,

    I’m not sure exactly where you are referring to. If it’s about I studied all day, it’s just an example.

    But, when I was in high school, I studied all the time because i wanted to get into a good university.

    Does that help?

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

I am keenly interested to have some vocabulary related to ghost. please if you can help.

Sunday, May 26th 2013

(I studied all the tilme)means I studied from the beginning to the end,I studied. Only without anything else studied and taking a break and keep going like that. (I studied the whole time)means I have studied continuously without taking any break.

Hi Adam,
I am Hanan from Egypt.
Firstly, I wanna thank u for all your lessons, they’re very useful. secondly, would you mind explaining how can we pronounce words end in (ths, thes)like (baths,maths,months,strengthens……)
I’ll be really grateful if you explain that, because they sometimes confuse me.
Thanks in advance.
Hanan

Monday, May 27th 2013

    HI Hanan,

    It’s a little difficult to do without actually hearing it. I’ll try to make a video of it soon.

And, franky, I see no difference between them :(

Monday, May 27th 2013

    Hi Kenzoll,
    It’s all of it vs. the whole thing:

    In this case, you are right, they are pretty interchangeable. If you write ‘the whole of it’ it would be ok, but most people don’t bother with that construction- they just replace ‘of it’ with thing.

    Does that help?

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

      Yes, now it seems clearer. Many thanks!

      Monday, June 10th 2013

Adam! My name is Vanya, I am from Russia. I understand more of you group of lessons. You are great teacher. I would like to study with you by online. You would tell me about price, if you agree.

Monday, May 27th 2013

    Hi Vanya,

    Thank you, but right now I’m not doing online lessons. I might start in the summer though. Check again in July or August.

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

Be honest Teacher! I always hear the word ” whole” but I never know what does it mean and how to use it as well. Then many thanks for your nice lecture. It’s really great and useful for me and my kids too.

Monday, May 27th 2013

Thanks,
Could you explain what is the different between any childs or any children. What is correct ?

Monday, May 27th 2013

    “Children” is the right plural.

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    Hi Moni,

    You would have to be a bit more specific iin terms of context. You could say though, ‘any child’s’ or ‘any children’ or ‘any children’s’… but I’d need more.

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

I have a issue. Why in question 9 is asked “What happened to the pizza?” instead What did happen to the pizza? Is that correct gramatically?
By the way, thank you for the lesson.

Monday, May 27th 2013

    We can make a question without an auxiliary verb when we are asking about subject of sentence.
    For example: Who made it? or What happened to him?
    I hope it helps.

    Monday, May 27th 2013

      Yes, it helped me. Thanks!

      Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Thank you so much for this wonderful class.
Now, I have a subject which I’d like to know more about it. It’s the difference between “in the end our beginning” vs “at the beginning ou at the end”. I’ve been hearing native people using both of them but as I read on a grammar book, thet correct is AT and no IN. So, Could you dedicate one class for this matter? Thank you so much1

Monday, May 27th 2013

    Hi Viviane,

    In the beginning- mostly from Bible, but also when we talk about the very beginning of something.
    At the beginning- starting point.

    At the end- end place.
    in the end – finally.

    Hope that helps, but I’ll think of more examples.

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

Hello, Adam.
Could you, please, make a lesson about using “in order to” and “so as to”?

Monday, May 27th 2013

    Hi Bob,
    Sounds good. Will get on it.

    Sunday, June 9th 2013

Hi sgmmn, how are things going?

To find out the answer, we need to understand the difference between subject questions (questions about the subject of a sentence) and object questions (questions about the object of a sentence).

Look at this sentence:

Thalinho wrote an explanation.

A question about the object would be:

What did Thalinho write?

The answer – ‘an explanation’ is the object of the verb write.

A question about the subject would be:

Who wrote the explanation?

And the answer is ‘Thalinho’: the subject of the verb ‘wrote’.

So when the question is about the object , we use an auxiliary verb and an infinitive:

What did Thalinho write ?

But when the question is about the subject, we use the verb in the correct tense without an auxiliary:

Who wrote the explanation o?

Now let’s look at your examples:

What happened?
What did happen?

Is the word “what” asking a question about the subject or object of the verb happen?

Let’s imagine some possible answers to the question – using the verb happen, of course. Which ones are grammatically correct?

» Something happened to me.

»Nothing happened to them.

»I happened something.

»They happened nothing.

The first two are correct, of course. This means that we are asking a question about the subject of the sentence, so to make the correct question, we use the verb in the correct tense without an auxiliary: What happened?

The second example you give – What did happen? – is grammatically incorrect. However, if you are making a yes/no question, you need an auxiliary, so a yes/no question about the subject could be:

Did anything happen?
Did it happen to you?
Has anything happened yet?

But we would not normally say What did happen?

Monday, May 27th 2013

    Indeed. I understood your explanation thalinho. Don’t make sense to use “did” when the subject doesn’t exist in a question. Thanks man.

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

      Anytime, butty!

      Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Thank Adam!!

Monday, May 27th 2013

Hi! Thanks for this great lesson, Adam. It is very interesting. but the quiz is difficult for me.

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

thx adam 4 the lesson . and I just wonder what is the difference between the present perfect simple and the present perfect continuous . are both similar? i have difficulty using them when I speak because i’m kinda confused O.o

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    Hi Sarah,

    That would take a whole lesson to answer (and I’ll try to make a vid if I can), but for now:

    In many cases you can interchange them. keep in mind what is the situation NOW. If the action continues, use the continuous. If the action is complete, use the simple.

    Hope that helps a little :)

    Monday, June 10th 2013

      thx,I got it and i will be thankful if u make a vid about these tenses :)

      Thursday, June 13th 2013

I get nervous when I get 60% of Quiz. anyway I`m improving so fast now because I had decided to study phrases. I gave up grammar and my way to understand correctly change. I have no word to thanks the team in whole. Iam extremely thanks.

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

i can’t understand part of countible and uncountible nouns when we must use whole, all

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    Hi Turanoza,

    We can say all the money, but not the whole money, because money is uncountable, meaning it has no whole, no complete package. All the money is talking about specific money, like all the money in my pocket.
    The whole time is talking about a specific amount of time, not time in general.

    Does that help?

    Monday, June 10th 2013

thanks. it’s very useful for me

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

I was wrong in Q9 T.T

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Hi from. chile! So good lessons :)

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Thank you very much for such a great lesson.
I improved much by your videos. May be i’ll come to CANADA someday then i’d meet you.

THANK YOU!

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Thanks a lot. :)

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

It was great man, your website is awesome! Thanks

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Yeah thanks Adam, your explanation was just perfect…

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

That’s very very interesting. Thank you very much teach Adam. I never think that there was a different between these words.

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Thank you Adam!…I got 8

and how different between ‘the WHOLE world’ and ‘the ENTIRE world’

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

    HI Dhissie,

    In most situations, these two words are synonymous. There are some constructions in which they are not, because whole can be different parts of speech, entire is only an adjective. In your example, they are synonyms.
    Check: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/whole?show=0&t=1370874560

    hope that helps.

    Does that help?

    Monday, June 10th 2013

      Thank you so much!

      Wednesday, June 12th 2013

Dear Sir,
you explain topics best.would you please explain the difference between “what” and “which”

Thursday, May 30th 2013

    Hi Ammad,

    that’s a good question, but I’m afraid it would take a whole, long lesson to do that. I’ll try to make a vid about it.

    For now, you need to be more specific: are you asking about questions or clauses? In clauses, ‘what’ for noun clause, ‘which’ for adjective clause.

    Monday, June 10th 2013

thank you so much. I think it is easy but when I did the quiz sadly I get 80 only so I have to study hard .

Thursday, May 30th 2013

Thanks for this lesson.
I’ve been reading the book Percy Jackson, and sometimes when he has bad dreams he says I woke with a start.
What does it mean “woke with a start”?
Thanks

Thursday, May 30th 2013

    Hi Henrique,

    It means woke up scared. A start is like a little shock. For example, if someone waits behind a door, then jumps out and yells at you, you will be startled; you will jump with a start.

    Keep in mind it’s a little old-fashioned English.

    Monday, June 10th 2013

      sorry. START or STARTLE ??

      Tuesday, January 12th 2016

Hi Adam. How re you? Thank you very much for the lesson. It was very clear. I only got confused with the quiz… It so difficult understand what people mean to say without a context… But i got 8/10. I am waiting for new lessons, bye!
:)

Thursday, May 30th 2013

thanks Adam I love the way you teach :)

Thursday, May 30th 2013

Hello Adam, I would like you can give us a lesson about the way we can use: by, for, in, on and at. Thank you :)

Thursday, May 30th 2013

    Hi Fab8,

    I will look into that , but search this sight- we have a few lessons on prepositions.

    Monday, June 10th 2013

Please can you take a lesson on when to use I and me.Thanks.

Friday, May 31st 2013

    Good idea Stnramya. I’ll get on that.

    For now:
    I- subject
    me-object

    Monday, June 10th 2013

Hello Adam, Thanks you :)

Friday, May 31st 2013

many thanks!

Friday, May 31st 2013

thank youuuuuuuuuu))))

Friday, May 31st 2013

Hi Adam,thanks alot,wonderful lesson.

Friday, May 31st 2013

All cities, all day, but all the day etc. What´s the difference?

Saturday, June 1st 2013

    HI Aripitkamaki,

    I wouldn’t say ‘all the day’. All the cities, yes. It’s more about general things or specific things. If it’s specific, need to add ‘the’.

    Not sure if I answered the question though. Can you give me an example?

    Monday, June 10th 2013

Asslamu Alukom , I got 6 incorrect !!
That’s bad, the difference is complicated relatively. Do you agree me !? :/ :)

Saturday, June 1st 2013

    waalaikumusaalam,
    thats good enough, at least you’ve tried :)

    Sunday, June 2nd 2013

    This time 6, next time 7, soon enough 10. Keep trying :)

    Monday, June 10th 2013

Hi Adam,
Thank you very much for your lessons.
Would you please make a video on using these adverbs: “quite” ,”rather”,”pretty” and “fairly”?
I am particularly interested in the cases where quite means completely as opposed to where it means to some degree.
Thank you in advance.

Sunday, June 2nd 2013

    Hi Hosna,

    Good idea. I’ll get on that. As far as ‘quite’ meaning completely, that might be a British English thing, but I’ll have to check that.

    Monday, June 10th 2013

I got 8 :)

Hi mr Adam, can you plese explain the differences between PERFECT and PROPER??

by, Iful

Sunday, June 2nd 2013

    Hi Lful,

    Not sure exactly what you’re after here. perfect generally means without flaw, no errors, etc. Proper means correct for the situation.

    Can you give me an example where these were confusing?

    Monday, June 10th 2013

      Well here are some examples:

      We have to make the party go perfectly!!
      We have to make the party go properly!!

      Monday, June 10th 2013

Hi Adam,

Very helpful lesson. Thank you so much.

Sunday, June 2nd 2013

Hello, it was very useful.
Please talk abut how we can speak automatically, without thinking and without too much effort.
Thanks a lot.

Monday, June 3rd 2013

    That’s a tough one Farhad. It’s mostly about time and practice. The main thing is to stop translating in your head. Also, don’t be afraid of mistakes, just speak. It’ll come.

    Monday, June 10th 2013

      Thanks a million Mr.Adam

      Monday, June 10th 2013

Hi Adam,
Could you explain, why did you say
“I studied all day” not “I studied all the day”?
Where is ‘the’?
Thank you a lot for your lessons !!!

Monday, June 3rd 2013

    Hi Modx

    ‘all day’ is a measure of time. We’re not speaking about the day itself, but rather about how much time I spent studying. If I speak about a specific day, I would say ‘all of that day.’
    When I say ‘all of the cities were destroyed,’ I am talking about the cities themselves.

    Does that help?

    Monday, June 10th 2013

Hi Adam, could you explain what the difference between “Effect” and “Affect”, how can we use it in proper situation, Thanks

Monday, June 3rd 2013

    Hi George,

    The common answer is that effect is a noun (result) and affect is a verb (to influence). But, effect can also be a verb, meaning to bring about a situation.
    They started the revolution to effect change.

    Hope that helps

    Monday, June 10th 2013

that was interesting and confusing,, but i got 7 out of 10 thaks for quiz Mr Adam

Tuesday, June 4th 2013

Thank you very much for your lessons :-)
I did only 60 :-((

Tuesday, June 4th 2013

What is the best way to improve the pronunciation?

Tuesday, June 4th 2013

    Hi Marystela,

    You can use a dictionary with a phonetic spelling of difficult words to ‘see’ how they sound. Also, record yourself speaking- if it sounds strange to you, then try to say it differently.
    m-w.com is a good dictionary and also has sound files.

    Monday, June 10th 2013

I got 3 out of 10 :(
I understand the lesson , but I don’t why I did not know how to answer :(

Wednesday, June 5th 2013

Quite interesting Adam! I’d fancy you to give us a lesson about how to use the words who, whose and whom or the difference among them. I get confused especially when using who and whom!

Wednesday, June 5th 2013

    Will do Dalki. It’s a good request.

    For now:
    who -always subject position
    whom- always object position.

    Monday, June 10th 2013

Hi,Adam how are you. Thanks for the great lesson. I have some question to you ^_^
I saw many sentences that used ” was + v-3 ” I haven’t understood what does it means.
example ; The stock “was seen” as an excellent investment.
; The meeting “was taken up” with irrelevant discussion,wasting everybody’s time.
Pleas explain me what does it means and when I should be use?
thanks

Wednesday, June 5th 2013

    Hi Princi,

    V3 is the past participle.
    eg., v1- eat v2- ate v3- eaten
    v1- go v2- went v3- gone

    the examples you gave are passive voice, when the subject doesn’t do the action, but receives the action.

    Does that help?

    Monday, June 10th 2013

I learn a lot of thing in this video, thank you.

Thursday, June 6th 2013

Thanks all of it! The whole lesson was useful!

Friday, June 7th 2013

Hi, useful as always thanks.but my request is to compare have/let/make with third person. in other words why we say Let it go (not goes) and so.

Friday, June 7th 2013

    Hi Badami,

    That will make a good vid. I’ll get on it.

    For now, keep in mind that in your example the ‘go’ is part of the verb ‘let’, so is really a base verb, not a tense verb. Another example: You are hanging out a window. I am holding your hand so you don’t fall, and I say “don’t worry, won’t let go.” This is the same let go as your example.

    Does this help?

    Monday, June 10th 2013

Great Work ! Teachers And Students . Thank you for the explanations

Friday, June 7th 2013

Adam
I thank you you so much for big help and I will want to learn more…

I am learning and enjoying myself reading all the comments too. Thanks

Friday, July 12th 2013

Excellent work. Thanks Adam.

Friday, July 12th 2013

Thank you so much for the lessons. This lesson was very useful and very understandable. I’ve always been wondering about the difference between ‘whole’ and ‘all’. But I still have one more question. Like among the example sentences you gave in the lecture. Would it be okay if I say ‘ All students need to….’ without ‘the’ between ‘all’ and ‘students’? Thank you for your time. I look forward to the next one.

Monday, July 22nd 2013

Thank You for your lesson, but I got 7 out of 10

Thursday, August 1st 2013

Hi Adam.
I enjoy watching your lessons – great job!
As Fab8, I also would like a lesson with prepositions:to, about, at, from, for, in, into, of, on, with etc. Verbs + prepositions, adjectives + prepositions…

Friday, August 2nd 2013

    :( no answer

    Sunday, September 1st 2013

“all” your lessons are useful.:)

Wednesday, August 7th 2013

Could you explain how to use bored & boring?

Thursday, August 15th 2013

Thanks Adam for this useful video
I got 7 out of 10
but i have more confusing about question 3,4
in question 4
“whole” means non stop (action= watch)
is similar to Example, which was explained in video “the baby cried the whole time”
Please explain

Thursday, August 15th 2013

thanks Agam

Tuesday, August 20th 2013

First of all thanks you Adam. I have question.
We should say — we do need —
or –we need–?

Sunday, September 1st 2013

Adam, please why question 5 the answer is all and not whole?

5. When almost ________ the tickets were sold, the band decided to add another show to their tour.
the whole
the all
all
whole

Sunday, September 1st 2013

Hi there! Thanks for the class Adam, as usual it was very enlightening.
However I’m still confused with the following sentence:
*I ate the whole cake. (according to the rules just presented, i belive this sentence is ok)
* I ate all the cake. (Is this one also possible?)
Thank you!

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

Monday, September 30th 2013

Hi Mr. Adam,

Appreciate your commitment.

I would like to requesrt from you to do a lessoon on ” Has Been, Have Been , basically using of BEEN”.

Thanks you.

Wednesday, October 9th 2013

Hi Mr. Adam,
Appreciate your commitment.
I would like to request from you to do a lesson on ” Has Been, Have Been , basically using of BEEN”.
Thanks you.

Wednesday, October 9th 2013

I appreciate all the Adam’s leasons. Tks

Sunday, October 13th 2013

Very strange experience after quiz ! Before I ”learn” the rules, I know by heart the usage of all and whole. After, was another story: 6 correct out 10. I don’t have any explanation :-)

Sunday, October 20th 2013

I’m sorry ! * I learned…
Thank you for your lesson, Mr. Adam.

Sunday, October 20th 2013

hi Adam, thank u for the lesson.
I have a question.I think u said, for uncountable nouns we use all not whole.Then what about ‘Time’.Should we use all for time? what about question number 9, ‘we danced the whole time’?!! I become confused, please help me.

Sunday, October 27th 2013

You got 10 correct out of 10.
:D
Interesting lesson, thank you.

Thursday, October 31st 2013

Hi Adam, I have practised the above mentioned topic with my textbook and there is one sentence which is not in accordance with the rules. “They have finished the whole work and went home” Noun “work” is uncountable, isn’t it ? Is there some exception ? I thought the correct sentence should have looked by that way:”They have finished all work and went home”

Sunday, November 10th 2013

The tenses in this sentence are also confusing. Present perfect with Past tense in one sentence. Right way: “After they had finished all work, they went home” Is it correct ?

Sunday, November 10th 2013

i got 8/10

Monday, November 18th 2013

What is the difference between these two sentences:
All students need to come to class early.
Students need to come to class early.

Monday, November 25th 2013

100% thanks, Adam

Tuesday, December 3rd 2013

Thanks 50%

Saturday, December 7th 2013

Friday, December 20th 2013

thank you, Adam ! what a good lesson :D

Thursday, January 2nd 2014

“3. That club was so much fun; we stayed until 3 A.M. and danced __________ time.
– all the
the all
whole the
+ the whole”

I answered “all the” because, in my opinion, it’s impossible to dance the whole time until 3 A.M. without stopping.

Monday, January 6th 2014

    >without stopping.
    without any stops.
    *selffix*

    Monday, January 6th 2014

Can you please explain when to use the preposition “THE” with “whole” and “all”.

1. all day
2. all THE time
3. all cities
4. whole cities
5. all THE money
6. all students
7. THE whole class

Hello, Adam! Thank you for this lesson very much! It helped me to understand more about ‘all’ and ‘whole’.
I made a mistake in the 3d sentence about the club, because I remembered about the sentence about the crying baby, so I decided, that it would be difficult to dance for hours.
But still I have one question.
We have a sentence – The baby cried the whole time. If it is a non-stop action, can we use Continuous and say – The baby was crying the whole time.
Thanks in advance)

Wednesday, January 15th 2014

i am really intersting in this lesson but i can’t make difference between whole and all because some situations are difficlt

Monday, January 20th 2014

Hi adams i got 10 after i try 3 time …i confused between use it but i understand that all use it as general and whole as agroup (special)
Thanx alot i like your method in teaching
I want to help me to find ansewr this question
Did you get my letter ?
Yes,i …… Just received it
A-is
B-has
C-was
D- have
I chose was because it is the past tense but myfriend say that correct answer d
I want to explain why chose have

Tuesday, January 28th 2014

    Hi, your friend is right. The correct answer is letter “D” that tense is present perfect, I think you know something about this, and the word JUST shows us that is the time ago is not so far, is recently (a short time ago) … I hope this helps you to clarify your doubt. Bye for now :)

    Tuesday, April 14th 2015

      sorry for the mistake… it was …the word “JUST” shows us that the time is not so far, is recently (a short time ago) … I hope this helps you to clarify your doubt. :)

Saturday, December 13th 2014

thank’s Adam ,I’ve got 5 correct answer, could you tell me about number 9 , i can’t understand ,why is that the answer ?

Saturday, December 13th 2014

This lesson was quite difficult. When I studied it seem not very difficult but when I did the quiz “OMG” it was very hard to select the correct choice. So I got only 6/10. However, your examples were very useful. Thanks for teaching us. I really appreciated.

Tuesday, December 16th 2014

Hi Adam! I love your videos! You speak clearly and you give a lot of examples that make easy the comprehension for who don’t have the english as your native language. And you are likable and funny.
But about the use of “all” and “whole” I don’t understood. For instance, in the quiz there is the sentence: “_________ world is experiencing climate change.”. Why the answer in this case is “whole” considering that the world is very big for someone say that the “whole world” is experiencing climate change. The word “whole” don’t means “complete”. I think that a lot of countries in the world is experiencing climate change, but I wouldn’t say that the whole world is experiencing climate change. I don’t know the entire world to say this. And I think that this would be impossible. Am I crazy for think this way? :( Sorry if doesn’t make sence.

Friday, December 26th 2014

Hi Adam!!!Very good lesson, but, tell the truth, i didn’t understand it correctly.Only 50 from 100((((

Friday, January 9th 2015

Mr. Adam, thank you, these are awesome videos, I’ll be grateful if you explain to us in the coming videos the difference from all sides between”
Whole and Entire, also difference between
I think, I believe, I guess.

Friday, January 9th 2015

Hey Adam, could you explain the last part of the video. Because I don’t understand the ” all followed by the plural” and ” whole followed by the singural”. Did you understand my question?

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

How poor I am! I got only 6 of 10.

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

Thank you!

Sunday, January 25th 2015

Hi! My test results are 9/10 but I still don’t understand why I should say “all members” instead of “all THE members”?

Thursday, January 29th 2015

Friday, January 30th 2015

Thanks for a great lesson, Adam!

Saturday, January 31st 2015

Thanks for this lesson Sir Adam i lost my mind but i never give up for this learning about English.

Sunday, February 1st 2015

Hi Adam, could you explain, why did you use the Past Simple in your example “The baby cried all the time”. Why not Continuous? Thanks.

Tuesday, February 3rd 2015

Hi. Can you explain please? I don’t understand, why when we talk “Whole cities were destroyed” we use plural. I think that it is about one citi which was completely destroyed. No?

Sunday, September 6th 2015

Question no 7 & 8 are same but answers are difrent, why sir?

Sunday, September 13th 2015

    no, they are not. the 7th question is without clarification, i.e. did you eat pizza? – yes, i did. Just ate it ALL. In 8th question, he asks, did you eat every single piece? And as Adam said, in such case you need to use THE WHOLE.

    Wednesday, November 11th 2015

Hello Adam, you tell the themes very good. It is so exciting and interessting to watch your videos. Thank you so much for teaching…

Wednesday, December 2nd 2015

Thanks, Adam! Everithing’s clear, but there is one moment I don’t understand.

“Adam: What happened to the pizza?
James: I ate it.
Adam: _________ it?!”

Why do we have to say “All of it”? We’re talking about the whole pizza, aren’t we?

Friday, December 11th 2015

Friday, March 4th 2016

Guys I get 7 and 8 Scores is it common or it means Im Bad?

Saturday, March 5th 2016

Hi Adam,
while taking the quiz I found 7th and 8th are the
same questions but having different answers. What is the reason behind it?

Monday, March 14th 2016

Hi Adam!

There’s two sentences that you wrote, here are:
1)All cities were destroyed.
2)Whole cities were destroyed.

What I don’t get clearly understood is:
Why in the previously sentences you said that “All” means everything, one etc. But rather in “Whole” means complete package of something, however, you said in the second one sentence that “Some cities were completely destroyed but, other cities would be fine/ok.” Regarding this, why it is some cities?

Friday, April 1st 2016

got 10/10. thanks your video was awesome

Monday, April 4th 2016

The explanation is clear. I got 100.

Monday, April 11th 2016

I got 6. I need more practice of this particular topic.

Thursday, April 14th 2016

Hi Adam! Firstly congratulations for your channel and lessons are both fantastic and really useful!
I did not understand something, if “all the” is used with uncountable singular nouns, why in the example about the pizza it says “All of it?” instead of “whole of it”? Thanks! :)

Monday, April 18th 2016

Great lesson! Thanks!

Tuesday, May 17th 2016

aa… so helpful… but please sir..i need to know about the topic”subject verb agreement”.. please make a lesson of it as soon as possible.. #adam sir

Friday, May 20th 2016

Hello Adam, how are you? Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us!!! So, about the topic All and whole, “you are all my history” or “you are my whole history” please Is the sentence correct?

Saturday, June 11th 2016

I made 10 out of 10. Once again, I learnt a little bit more with you, Adam! Thanks! (:

Monday, June 13th 2016

it is an important english lesson Adam, I will read and investigate more about it, thanks for your time

Friday, August 5th 2016

Is there any difference of pronunciation between the words “hole” and “whole”?

Saturday, August 6th 2016

    certainly not because phonetically they are transcribed the same way just like the words Weather and Whether.

    Thursday, September 1st 2016

Sorry, guys. Can you explain me the difference between “whole” and “entire”? Thanks in advance.

Monday, August 8th 2016

Thank you teacher !!! I didn´t understand the example about All cities and whole cities in the presentation, maybe there is a mistake with the meaning of the sentence.

Friday, August 19th 2016

Hi Adam

EXP.”Kleen Brite is a whole new concept in toothpaste.”
