So what about ‘careful’, Adam?

Monday, September 9th 2013

    “more careful.”

    Monday, September 9th 2013

      I beleive ‘more carefully’

      Tuesday, September 10th 2013

        Careful is a adjective. Carefully is a adverb. The difference is that adjective tells about noun, and adverb tells about verb.

        So, if I’m not wrong, It will depends of the idea you are expressing. For instance, you could say that “Women are more CAREFUL than men while they are driving” or you could say that “Women drive more CAREFULLY than men.” . The twice phrases are a little bit different.

        Tuesday, September 10th 2013

          “an adjective” “an adverb”

          Tuesday, September 10th 2013

          I must admit I was wrong there.

          Tuesday, September 10th 2013

          Hi claudio77
          How about using this word “modify”?
          adjective modifies …..
          adverb modifies……

          Tuesday, October 1st 2013

          Good job explaining Claudio

          Sunday, September 22nd 2013

          YESSS!! Thanks, Adam! I’ve been learning here!

          Sunday, September 22nd 2013

        “Carefully” is not an adjective, so, careful => more careful; carefully => more carefully.

        Tuesday, September 10th 2013

      Claudio, affirmative! Thanks for sharing.

      Monday, November 18th 2013

      and always the best teacher is Adam!

      Thursday, April 24th 2014

    I ,like Adam because I go to his website

    Thursday, April 24th 2014

very useful lesson thanks Adam!!!!

Monday, September 9th 2013

I had already known this topic, but I made 90 :( By the way the lesson was good, everybody makes mistakes. Thanks for lessons :)

Monday, September 9th 2013

sound simple but a tricky quiz.I am little bit disappointed with my score;9 out of 10 but all happpy being the second who did the quiz.Very useful in written and spoken.Thanks alot Adam

Monday, September 9th 2013

and as always you are the best teacher adam

Monday, September 9th 2013

I did 10/10 \o/ \o/

Thank you Adam!!!

Monday, September 9th 2013

Happens , Adams.

Monday, September 9th 2013

Thanks a lot, Adam! :)

Monday, September 9th 2013

This lesson seems easier than really it is, when we are in a real speak situation.

Thanks, Adam.

(I got 100.)

Monday, September 9th 2013

    Yes, I agree with you!

    Tuesday, September 10th 2013

The adjective far, if I remember correctly, has two forms far, farther or far – further. Am I right? I’m not sure when to use each. I would say fartzher is for distance in place, further for place and time. Please correct me if I am mistaken.
Otherwise, very useful lesson. Thanx

Monday, September 9th 2013
    Tuesday, September 10th 2013

      thank you claudio. It is useful for me too.

      Tuesday, September 10th 2013

      thanx Claudio. I have watched it and I was right. Thanx again

      Wednesday, September 11th 2013

    Hi Danip,

    Farther is used to speak about distance, yes. Further can also be used the same way, but more often than not it is used to mean ‘more’, for example:
    The experiment led to some interesting discoveries, but further research will be needed to reach a solid conclusion.

    Hope that helps.

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

Fun is one syllable,it should be funnier so why we use(more fun).is this an exceptional?

Monday, September 9th 2013

    ‘funnier’ is the comparative form of ‘funny’. ‘fun’ is an other word but the example is still curious because as I know, that word is a noun, not an adjective, so it can’t be comarative.

    Monday, September 9th 2013

      Hi Bencebacsi,

      Actually, fun can be noun or adjective:

      That was a fun party.
      This game is fun.

      So fun can be a comparative adjective:

      Hope this helps.

      S

      Sunday, September 22nd 2013

        Thanks Adam, it is more fun watching the video lesson and reading the comments. :-)

        Monday, November 18th 2013

    Hi Cuong ta,

    Remember that fun and funny are two different words. fun-more fun; funny-funnier.

    And yes, more fun is an exception because of the mix-up with funnier.

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

hi teacher adam
can you please make a lesson about
Cleanup vs. clean up
and
clean up vs clean
thank you in advance

Monday, September 9th 2013

    Hi Nino,

    This might be a little to specific for a lesson, but how’s this:

    cleanup- the process of cleaning after something is done, such as a party– the party was great, but the cleanup will take a long time.

    clean up- to clean completely. We have to clean up the house before my parents get home.

    clean- you can clean a window (remove dirt, stains, etc) but to clean up means to get rid of the mess and the dirt, etc.

    clean your room– with a cloth and some spray.
    clean up your room– put clothes in the closet, books on the shelf, toys off the floor, etc.

    Does this help?

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

      english is crazy language hhh
      thanks dear adam
      ;)

      Tuesday, September 24th 2013

What is it ok- older or elder for talking about the comparative form of “old” ?

Monday, September 9th 2013

    old elder is used when we talk about age(my elder sister, elder people..)
    old older is more common and can be used for people and things(old book, i am older than you..

    Wednesday, September 11th 2013

    Hi Jccorisoncco,

    Older and elder are both OK. Elder is a little old fashioned and can also be used as a noun (The village elders make the decisions). Elder can only be used for people, while older can be used for other things as well.

    Hope that helps.

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

      Thanks a lot !!!!! by the way, could you show a lesson about future perfect and future perfect continuous ?

      Sunday, September 22nd 2013

        And other lessons about idioms, pleaseeeeeee

        Sunday, September 22nd 2013

Hello Adam, all your lessons are understandable! You as an other teachers explaining the meanings of the words well! If you don’t object I would like to show you some site, BUSUU — please Adam check it out! thank you brother for the excellent job!

Monday, September 9th 2013

Nice to meet you, Adam. I seldom to use “sad” comparative form. So I mistook. But it is good study for me. Thank you ;)

Monday, September 9th 2013

    hello happy,I think

    Tuesday, September 10th 2013

Thank you very much for your lessons, teacher Adam! Each lesson is so useful for me. I hope, I will be able to speak in English better.

Monday, September 9th 2013

i got 9 out of 10~
hahaha i am more fun than this lesson watch before.
Thank you Adam~

Monday, September 9th 2013

Good explanation! Thanks Adam!!

Monday, September 9th 2013

Thank you dear sir Adam for your all fantastic lessons.they are very useful. would you please answer my one question. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
MY QUESTION IS BLEW-:
HOW DO we use ‘How do you do’ AND CAN’T I USE IT WITH MY BROTHERS, FRIENDS AND FAMILY?
IS IT ONLY USED WHEN WE INTRODUCE SOMEONE OR IT CAN BE USED WITH THE SAME PERSON OVER AND OVER AGAIN?
AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN? waiting for for your ans.

THANKING YOU!

Monday, September 9th 2013

    Hi Sonu,

    ‘How do you do?’ is a little too formal and probably shouldn’t be used with family and friends. Also it is only used at a first meeting, for example in a business situation. That being said, it’s a little bit old fashioned. Better simple say ‘Nice to meet you.”

    Hope that helps.

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

Thank you very much. That is very helpful. Could you please have some grammar specially for GMAT? Thank you!

Monday, September 9th 2013

    Hi Guo,

    Can you be a little more specific? GMAT has a lot of grammar points to study for.

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

Thanks a lot Adam ! 10/10. Danip, you use farther if you talk about distance. Further is a comparative but about level or degree for something. But eventually i think we can use wathever you want !

Monday, September 9th 2013

    thnx

    Wednesday, September 11th 2013

many thanks Adim

Monday, September 9th 2013

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    Hi! Can you see any other videos on Youtube, or is it just this one that won’t play?

    Wednesday, September 11th 2013

Big Thanks Adam for this lesson! Can you explain differ between two words “respond” and “answer”. It seems that is the same meaning.

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    Hi Eurokolchoznik,

    You answer a question, you respond to a request, a command, an invitation, or other actions.
    Does this help?

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

      Thank You Adam. Now I understand. Language is like river. You never don’t know where you drift. (It is my idea, my text. Probably don’t grammatical correctly text. But my :) )

      Monday, September 23rd 2013

I got 100 this time little bit of improvement in my english. I hope I’ll be able to improve my english soon by doing everyday practice .I’m very excited about Adam video,hope to get more engvid videos in near future

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

so sorry ,mistakenly I’ve written 100 but Got 70

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

Hello sir, Great and easy lesson.Teachers like engVid teachers are less in the whole world.Thanks for teaching us.Good luck with your teaching

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

“Sadder” sounds weird. I used “More sad”, though.

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    I’ll take it– remember, it’s more about being understood than being perfect.

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

A little bit confuse. Y is a consonant, however we say Happyer. Is the “Y” an exeption?

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    “Y” sometimes acts like a vowel!

    Wednesday, September 11th 2013

    Maybe I was a little confusing in this lesson. We say happier (drop the y and replace with i)

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

Wow very nice I got 100%. Thanks a lot my teacher, mister Adam for you nice explanation of the comparison rules.

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

Hello,Adam
could you please tell me what is the diffrence between a statement and a sentence?
thanks in advance.

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    Hi Mehdi,

    Anything can be a sentence as long as it has at least a subject and a verb and can stand as a complete idea. A statement is an expression of something concrete, like an opinion or observation.

    Does this help?

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

hello.Adam
i was wander if you could tell me how many kinds of translatons do we have? please name them ,if possible. i have already heared about three kinds of them consist of consecutive-facility and interpreter and simultaneous translation. do we have other kinds of it or not? thanks indeed
this is mehdi from Iran interested on your lessons .i am impatiently waitting for your reply.

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    Not really my field, Mehdi. Sorry, but you’ll have to do some research on that.

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

more common is more common than commoner?

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    Indeed it is :)

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

Thanks for teaching me….i appriciate this video

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

Thanks, Adam! I was not sure how to use comparision with 2-syl words till this lesson. 100/100 is my result now.

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

Were you shy today?
Well, thanks for the lesson.

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    I also noticed that…He seems to be shy! :) But still a wonderful teacher.

    Tuesday, September 10th 2013

      Thank you :)

Best regards

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    I’ll try to get to that as soon as I can.

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

thanks you Adam :)continue working in that way…. excellent job, I could unterstand perfectly

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

Adam please explain me the meaning of the word of – event- if you speaking about the Olympic games)! I don’t understand it at all!

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    Hi Abdel Said,

    Not sure what you mean exactly, but if it’s the word “event” it means the activity. So, at the Olympics, there are many sports,such as skiing, with events such as downhill, cross-country, jumping, and so on. the event is the thing you watch on TV.

    Does this help?

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

What about pleasant ,eventhough it includes 2 syllables you put more with it.can you explaine please??

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

    Hi Medirock,

    Two-syllable words that end in y–_______ier.

    Two-syllable words that end in other consonants–more_______.
    Thirsty–thirstier
    solid–more solid.

    Does this help?

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

Wednesday, September 11th 2013

Hi Adam. Just a very intelligent question: how the comparatives do work with the stammerers?

Wednesday, September 11th 2013

    :)I’ll have to look that up

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

As far as I’m concerned this lesson is better than much others in the net… I scored 80% but i will studying to have less mistakes.

Thanks a lot teacher Adam.

Wednesday, September 11th 2013

Thank you I have one misstake / mistake :)

Wednesday, September 11th 2013

I don’t know abjectives and adverbs csn you post on youtube to teach us how to do a adjectives and adverbs

Wednesday, September 11th 2013

    Hi T011…,

    Adjectives describe nouns.
    Adverbs describes verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs.

    Do a search at the top of this page for some lessons we have on this.

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

GOT 10 POINTS :) THX ADAM !!!!

Wednesday, September 11th 2013

adam you are very nice

Thursday, September 12th 2013

thank you Adam, it was short and sweet, just a question:

“clever” is a 2-syllable that end with “R” so we should use “more clever”, so why have you put it in exceptions???!!

by the way, you made me laugh too Adam, what was wrong in this video? :D :D

thanks again.

Thursday, September 12th 2013

    Hi Dado,

    That’s a very good point. I don’t know, I guess it’s because so many people (native speakers included) try to say cleverer.

    Anyway, these aren’t fixed rules, they just apply most of the time so can be taken as solid guidelines. :)

    Glad to make you smile at least. :)

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

i got 100

Thursday, September 12th 2013

Adam, cool vid. xD

I’m listening to a song titled “Cats In The Cradle” and there is one thing that I don’t understand. Here’s some verses:

I’ve long since retired, my son’s moved away.
I called him up just the other day.
“I’d like to see you, if you dont mind.”
He said, “I’d love to, Dad, if I could find the time.
You see my new job’s a hassle and the kids have the flu,
But it’s sure nice talkin’ to you, Dad.
It’s been sure nice talkin’ to you.”

What do “sure” mean in the last two verses?

Thursday, September 12th 2013

    Hey Morfik, long time no see ;)

    It basically means ‘definitely’ or ‘really’. A bit colloquial.

    Good song (by the way).

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

Just my 2 cents:
2-syllable adjectives having the negative form can take both forms of grading, even though they consist of 3 syllables:

healthy – negative: unhealthy
unhealthy, unhealthier, unhealthiest
OR:
unhealthy, more unhealthy, the most unhealthy

Check also how the adjective “common” is graded in different dictionaries :) Don’t mix up the pronunciation of “commonest” with “communist”, though :-)

Thursday, September 12th 2013

    I’d pay a buck for that :)

    Thanks

    Sunday, September 22nd 2013

i liked veru much !! Thanks Adam

That’s really amazing. I was thinking that there is no basic grammer to use syllables into the sentences. While i was watching the lesson i have seen a comment that asks about careful… how should we use it? carefuler or more careful ….. Good lesson..Thanx Adam

Monday, September 23rd 2013

very simple thank you adam
you are great

Monday, September 23rd 2013

Hi Adam. I know that CLEVER is considered a short adjective as it has two syllable so we should say CLEVERER not MORE CLEVER.
What’s your remark?
Thanks a lot.

    You’re right! “Cleverer” just sounds weird because of the double “-er”‘s.

    Saturday, November 22nd 2014

why we say “more pleasant” ? it has 2 syllable.

Adam, perfect lesson,as usual.
I wonder if I would be a bore if I asked you for
a lesson on separating syllables.

I always have problems with that particular
subject.

Huge hug.

By the way, once I was having tea, a very British
5:00 o’clock tea in a Tea House in London.
And there were two ladies having tea and they were sitting at a table quite close to mine,and
I overheard one of them saying: ” Well, I think
he’s THE HANDSOMEST man in the world.”

Wow,can we say use that superlative form?

I’m like a sponge and when I hear things like
that I go: ” wow, what’s she saying? She seems
to have a good education. How come she’s saying
that?” Of course, it happened years ago, but so
far no-one has explained that to me.

Can I say that?

Hi, Adam. I’m from Brazil, and I’ve been teaching English for ESL for some time now. I’ve already seen a lot of explanations on comparatives, but not the way and explain them. That was the best explanation on this subject I’ve seen until now. You’re clear, and pleasant as well.

What about ‘major’? is it the same case of ‘clever? should it be ‘majorer’ and it’s said ‘more major’, though?

Friday, July 3rd 2015

Hi Adam,
I really really thank you for your efforts to help others to learn more. God bless you.
But I think there were 2 or more mistakes in this lessen.
1.”GENTLE” has two syllables, so it becomes “more gentle”, ending “e”, or any other letters except “y”.
2.”CLEVER” has also two syllables, and it’s not ending “y” , so it always becomes “more clever” not “cleverer”.
3.”QUIET” has two syllables and it’s not ending “y”, so technically it must become “more quiet” but mostly native speakers say “quieter”.
Right ?

Hello Adam. Congratulations for your lessons; they are really great. I have a question: What about the word “comfortable”? Should I say “more comfortable”? Thank you.
