    Excuse me, but does anyone know why I can’t leave a comment here? I can only reply to someone’s comment.

    Wednesday, October 2nd 2013

      Is this comment box not showing up for you?

      Wednesday, October 2nd 2013

        Yes, it is. I didn’t notice it because there isn’t any auto-redirection to the page bottom after button clicking.
        But link in your message works correctly and now I see where comment box is.
        Thank you ;)
        P.S.
        You may also remove my previous and this one comments because it doesn’t make any sense now)

        Wednesday, October 2nd 2013

    Once I was told that language was a living thing i.e. it is changing all the time especially the English language.

    Back then, it didn’t make much sense to me. But now I’m convinced of that since I’ve seen how the English language has coined and added many new words to its corpora with the advent of the Internet and new technology.

    This lesson was really helpful.

    Thanks for this update on Internet terminology Mr. Benn.

    Regards

Monday, September 23rd 2013

Care your pupils!

Monday, September 23rd 2013

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

Oh my…I really got scared when I saw Miley Cyrus’s ass right in front of Adam’s face! What is he gonna talk about this time..? – I thought to myself, Gosh don’t do that again…

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

    lol, won’t do it again.

    Saturday, October 5th 2013

But anyways thanks for the new lesson! pretty interesting topic! :)

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

At first, honest to say, I was surprised because there was the photo of woman’s hip in the front of you :( Later I understood it was for explanation a web vocabulary (Sorry, I forgot the word. I have to review. haha) I got 8 correct out of 10. I forgot “SPAM” was a junk mail. But don’t worry. I ignore SPAM mails. Phishing also. The titles are weird for me. Thank you for your interesting lesson, Adam :)

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

    SPAM always makes think about canned food…….

    Thursday, September 26th 2013

      I never eat SPAM. So the canned SPAM is still mysterious meat for me :)

      Thursday, September 26th 2013

Thank you i got 9 correct out of 10 :)

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

    Me too bro, I can’t crop my pic. Can anyone help me plz?

    Thursday, December 19th 2013

This lesson will go viral.

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

    Is that go or goes??

    Thursday, September 26th 2013

      i don’t know. Ask sir adam about it.

      Friday, September 27th 2013

      It’s definitely ‘go’ not ‘goes’ . Because after ‘will’ we use the verb in zero form.
      I hope my answer is clear for you, Bianlei.

      Friday, October 4th 2013

      Hi BianLei,

      Use the normal rules for verbs: it will go viral, and if this lesson goes viral, it will be nice.
      Hope that helps.

      Saturday, October 5th 2013

        Got it, sir. Thanks! :)

        Sunday, October 6th 2013

Friday, September 27th 2013

Adam, you are an excellent teacher. Again, EXCELLENT!
But there are hundreds of images to illustrate your class.
I do not want EngVid open the page in front of my wife and my seven year old son, and that looks like a xwebsite.
There are many people following your work. We are from different religions, moral principles, ages, and more … I’m sorry, but I must express my feelings.
Thanks for teaching.

Friday, September 27th 2013

Thank you

Friday, September 27th 2013

thaks, i learned what some worlds means if we use in portuguese but u really don’t know what that mean, but have an idea. like cookies or spam

Friday, September 27th 2013

great words/verbs haha! thx

Friday, September 27th 2013

Many thanks adem

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Thank you, Adam

Saturday, September 28th 2013

I really don’t know what a post view is. I chose “what can be seen from the top of a post”. xD At first I thought that it is some kind of button and after you press it, you can see all post on one site, so that’s why it’s a post view, but this answer wasn’t available. :)

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Adam, I have some questions:

1. Look ad these sentences:

“Almost two years later, the report has yet to be delivered.”
“To this day, officials have yet to provide key details, including exactly how many machines were compromised…”
“Greg Kroah-Hartman told Ars that the investigation has yet to be completed and gave no timetable for when a report might be released.”

There’s a has/have + yet + infinitive. It looks as the sentences would be positive, but they aren’t. I know that’s because of the word “yet”. I don’t know how to treat the construction, but is there a possibility that it is just “have/has to”? You know, the idiomatic modal verb.

2. I know that people use “you and I”, “he and I”, etc. when they want to say about something that they did with another person. They don’t say, for example, “I and you”. But I noticed that people often use “me and you” instead “you and I”. I don’t know what “you” covers, and the question is: could you tell me a little bit about this thing? I know that this isn’t probably correct, but native speakers use it, and if I wanted to use “he” instead of “you”, in this case I should use “he” or “him”?

3. This is from the Band of Brothers, a tv show. There is a sentence:
“We don’t got no aid station”
It’s pretty weird. :) I can see the double negative, but that’s not the point. Why is there “don’t” + got. I thought at first the word was misspelled in subtitles, but the person really said that. Any comment?

4. And the last one is the following sentence:

“A couple of beers makes you less focused and decreases you memory”

“A couple of…” is always singular?

Saturday, September 28th 2013

    Hi Morfik,

    Let’s start with:
    1) “Almost two years later, the report has yet to be delivered.”—…the report has not yet been delivered.
    “To this day, officials have yet to provide key details, including exactly how many machines were compromised…”—… officials have not yet provided key details…

    You’re right about the negative connotations. However, by saying have yet to… instead of have not yet…, the implication is that the action is still expected and awaited.

    2) I’m sorry to say that native speakers make grammar mistakes all the time. Basically, use I, you, he, she, we, they in the subject position, and me, you, him, her, us, them in the object position.
    He and I want to visit you and her.

    3) LOL. The Americans like to butcher the language at times. It comes from ‘haven’t got’.
    It would have been even worse if they’d have said “We ain’t got no…”

    4) Nope. If you literally meant two beers, then it would be a plural construct. If you are referring to the idea of drinking alcohol, then it can be singular. (soon there will be a lesson posted on collective nouns that will explain this a bit more)

    :)

    Saturday, October 5th 2013

Thanks!!!!!!

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Thanks! It’s very helpful.

Sunday, September 29th 2013

Adam, I have one questions, please may correct this phrase:
“Well versed in the field of research and development in the field
of nanotechnology. I’m Looking an opportunity to work as a
researcher in electromagnetic modeling.”

Sunday, September 29th 2013

    “(I am)Well versed in the area of research and development in the field of nanotechnology. I’m looking for an opportunity to work as a
    researcher in electromagnetic modeling.”

    Hope this helps.

    Saturday, October 5th 2013

Hi Adam. Thanks for your efforts and teaching us internet vocabulary. that is right the bit is representing a smallest information in the computer, and by the way it is coming from BInary digiT (BIT), so byte generally represent 8 bits length.

Sunday, September 29th 2013

hi adam, your class is wonderful like always thanks!

Sunday, September 29th 2013

“mystery meat” that combination of words make me laugh. Thanx.

    Saturday, October 5th 2013

      okay thank you a lot

      Sunday, October 13th 2013

Thank you handsome teacher

Thursday, October 3rd 2013

Your site is very helpful! Before I watch the lesson I answer first the questions about the lesson to see how my knowledge has gone far without watching the lesson yet and afterwards watch and learn for my mistakes in the video. Keep up the goodvwork! :)

Thursday, October 3rd 2013

Thank you very much. This is a very useful information.

Thursday, October 3rd 2013

Hello Adam! Good lesson!
I have some question about grammar. There is the sentence “Did you understand the lesson?” at the end of this video. Why is the Past Simple used there but not the Present Perfect?

Thursday, October 3rd 2013

    Hi BlackCorsair,

    Good question. In this case I am using ‘the lesson’ as a reference point for a clear event that happened in a recognizable past, and so can use the simple tense. I can also use the perfect tense, but in casual situations I would go with the simple.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, October 5th 2013

      I think I get it, but not completely =)
      I would be very grateful if you could give me some examples (with explanation).

      Tuesday, October 8th 2013

        OK. If I say “In high school I studied very hard” you can understand that ‘high school’ is not a specific time, but rather a situation. That situation implies a specific time (high school = 14-18 years old).
        When I say “Did you understand the lesson?” the lesson is a situation that just happened. You know which lesson I mean, so it is specific enough that I can use the past simple. If I ask you about other lessons of mine, I would use “have you understood my lessons?” because it’s a more general question. If I ask “did you understand my lesson on writing?” I can go back to the simple tense because it is more specific and you know when I gave that lesson and which lesson.

        Is this a little better?

        Sunday, October 20th 2013

          Yep) That’s pretty good explanation.
          Now everything is clear.
          Thank you very much for all your help, Adam!

          Tuesday, October 22nd 2013

Adam, I got another one. This concerns the “cts” suffix. For example: facts or effects. I noticed that people pronounce it without “t”. Now I’m watching “Married with children”, and there is a word “respect”. It was also pronounced without “t”. So, it looks like people don’t feel comfortable with pronunciation of “c” and “t” when they exist together. Is that right? Is it acceptable to say words in this way?

Friday, October 4th 2013

    Actually, if you listen very carefully, the ‘t’ is pronounced in respect. The ‘k’ sound is just stronger and so ‘drowns out’ the ‘t’. As for facts and effects, the t+s combine to sound like the ‘zz’ in pizza, rather than a clear and separate t and s.

    Saturday, October 5th 2013

thank you teacher. now i know what is meme…

Saturday, October 5th 2013

Compliments, you are the first person I know who can pronunce “meme” in the right way.
It comes from ancient Greek “mimema” – “imitated”.
Thanks for this lesson!

Saturday, October 5th 2013

hi adem I am not good at speaking,can you have some more about apeaking lessons?Thank very much!

Saturday, October 5th 2013
