    Interesting vocabulary lesson Adam, but frankly
    speaking, I need to go over it at least once more; only then I will be able to put into use some of these vocab items.

    Your examples helped us to understand much better new words and expressions.

    Many thanks, bye for now.

Hi, Adam… Thanks for the lesson! :)

Thursday, June 4th 2015

The term ‘love handles” comes from the act of making love. Am I right?
Great videos, Adam! They make me look for more details in the language. You’re a witty, good professor.

Thursday, June 4th 2015

this engvid is very excellent program.But i want they would give importance on Gre .

Thursday, June 4th 2015

    Hi Satiago,

    The GRE is a very difficult exam and not really meant for ESL learners. Even native speakers have a difficult time with this test.

    If you have a specific question, though, I might be able to help.

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

where the expression “love handles” come from?

Friday, June 5th 2015

    Hi Pavel,

    Love handles give you something to hold on to during, well… loving times ;)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

I want to tone my boddy burnning fat and bulking up my muscles.”

Friday, June 5th 2015

    Hi Chiara,

    Yes, well said. Just, I want to burn fat and bulk up on muscles to tone my body.

Friday, June 5th 2015

Friday, June 5th 2015

Woo mr Adam again an amazing lesson explained by you ( I love the lessons which r explained by u by the way xD)

any way thank you a lot for your effort

u know I am not a native speaker in English but I understand every word you say…but while watching an English movie sometimes I do understand and sometimes I don’t. weird isn’t it??

Friday, June 5th 2015

    Hi Rena,

    Keep in mind that I am directing my speech toward English learners, so it is a little slower and I make sure to be very clear, and I avoid too much slang. In movies, they speak more naturally, and to native English speakers. So it’s understandable that you might not catch everything, but with continued practice, you will.
    :)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

      Adam, thank you for this comment… usually I have the same problem when I watch movies.

      Thursday, August 20th 2015

Hey Adam! How’s it going?
I’d like to ask a favor. Is it possible for you to correct my essay (based on the IELTS Writing Test- just for practcing)? Unfortunately I dont know any native speaker in my country and that is a bit difficult for me.Maybe I could send it to you via email or something like that? I know it’s kinda weird to ask for free, but….If you dont have time or it’s not possible, I understand as well. Thanks one again for teaching us.
Have a nice day!

Friday, June 5th 2015

    Hi Henry,

    As much as I would love to help, I get asked this too often to be able to do it. However, you can post your essay on my site (writetotop.com/forums/forum/forum/peer-scoring/) and others will give you some feedback and I will add a bit as well.

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

Saturday, June 6th 2015

Huge thanks to you Adam for this incredible lesson.
I wish you will make a lesson about the pronunciation of ….ght like in bought and drought …etc.
Please do because I have trouble pronouncing them.
Thanks once again.

Saturday, June 6th 2015

    Hi Hiba,

    I’ll see what I can do. But English is a little crazy in that ‘taught’ sounds like tot, ‘tough’ sounds like tuff, ‘though’ sounds like thow, and ‘trough’ sounds like trof.

    I think it’s more a matter of remembering each word’s pronunciation, as there isn’t really a universal rule on this.

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

that was cool)

Saturday, June 6th 2015

    Really ? :D

    Sunday, June 7th 2015

Thanks for the quiz :)

Monday, June 8th 2015

Hi Adam. Thank you.

Monday, June 8th 2015

It is good lesson, but I couldn’t get “muffin top”. Could you clarify it?
Thank you.

Monday, June 8th 2015

    Hi Rabibr,

    A muffin is a sweet cake that is baked in small cups. When the cake cooks, it gets bigger and the top comes over the edge of the cup and hangs over. When some people put on tight jeans, some of their waist might come over the edge of the jeans and it looks like the top of the muffin.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

      yeap, I got it. Thank you Adam

      Saturday, June 27th 2015

      :) good teacher

      Sunday, September 20th 2015

I would get in shape, work out is hard for me, I prefer to study. Nice job, teacher.

Monday, June 8th 2015

Great lesson!!!

Monday, June 8th 2015

thanks

Monday, June 8th 2015

I’m in shape luckily. I love runnig and exercising to the gym .
Great lesson Adam!

Monday, June 8th 2015

Thank you Adam. Your lessons are perfect. But you didnt touch one theme in your GYM lesson. What do i need to talk if i do weights and i want to be supported by somebody not to drop the barbell on myself?

Monday, June 8th 2015

    Hi Arotim,

    Good question. Actually there are many more words, but that’s for another lesson.

    What you want is a ‘spotter’. You can say to someone, “Can you spot me? or Can you give me a spot?” That means they will watch while you lift to make sure you don’t drop the weights.

    Hope this helps.

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

Thank you, I got 9/10

Monday, June 8th 2015

Thanks for this lesson Adam, this is my first video that I watched!

Monday, June 8th 2015

    Welcome Leon :)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

10 out of 10 :) that was great, I had such a great time enjoying this video

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

thank for your lesson :)

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

i never gone to he gym since i have an average body :p

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

What about built? I hear people say that a lot. He’s built. Would that be same as buff??

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

    Hi Sayaka,

    Yes, “He’s built” generally means he’s muscular (big). Buff means more toned.

    This is mostly about guys, but you can say she’s built like a brick outhouse– she’s big and strong ;)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

thank u ^^

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

10 out of 10.

I don’t have money to go to a gym, so I work out by myself. The mayor from my city put a free gym in the park near my house, so I always jog and exercise there. It’s very good. I also like to do SITUPS, Adam didn’t mention it, but I think everyone knows it. It’s hard, but I do my best. I do 5 sets of 20. Is it correct? (“5 sets of 20”)

Thank you, Adam! You look like you’re in very good shape, keep doing it. ;D

Bye!

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

    Is it SITUPS or SIT UPS? I like to put the correct way. :D

    Tuesday, June 9th 2015

    Hi Renata,

    Yes, we say 5 sets of 20 reps (repetitions).

    Situps is correct. You can also say crunches if they’re a little shorter (not full motion).

    I try to work out regularly too ;)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

Thanks for the very useful video, Adam! I’ve heard that “workout” sometimes used as a noun, is it correct? And also can you use “work out” if you’re exercising at home (‘home fitness’:) or does it mean only exercising at the gym? Thank you.

Wednesday, June 10th 2015

    Hi Dasha,

    Work out is a verb, and workout is a noun. Working out basically means exercising regularly; it doesn’t have to be at the gym. :)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

Thank you Adam for this fantastic vocabulary used at the gym.You explained it very well.

Wednesday, June 10th 2015

Pretty well, I’m already waiting for another lesson !
Thanks Alex

Wednesday, June 10th 2015

thank you teacher

Wednesday, June 10th 2015

Awesome!

Wednesday, June 10th 2015

Thanks. Adam.
I have a question.
For example, someone asks:
“What are its properties? e.g. colour? composition?”
Then can I answer “for the colour….for the composition…”?
Use ‘for’ in this sentence, is it correct?

Thursday, June 11th 2015

    Hi Sophie,

    Use ‘as for’ to point out each aspect (although people will understand if you only say for)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

Getting in shape and bulking up our vocablulary.

Thursday, June 11th 2015

In many cases they can be mixed because the meaning is understood. Technically, you are asking about the difference between present perfect and simple past. Here is a link to Benjamin’s lesson about this (there is also one by Rebecca if you put it in the search box:
http://www.engvid.com/english-tenses-present-perfect-present-simple/
Let me know if this helps.

I watched those videos a few days ago, and had them watched before. Thank you,Adam but how about interrogative sentences? It would be great to have some examples.

Thursday, June 11th 2015

    Hi Katrin,

    The same rules apply:

    Did you see Matt at the concert? (we know when the concert was, so it’s a definite time)

    Have you seen Matt lately? (indefinite time)
    Have you ever been to Disneyland? (experience)
    Did you visit Disneyland while you were in California? (definite time)

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

      Now it’s clear. Thank you Adam.

      Sunday, June 21st 2015

10/10 Thank you!

Friday, June 12th 2015

Thanks ADAM :)

Friday, June 12th 2015

why question no 10 is not burning fat?

Friday, June 12th 2015

Hi Adam :) your videos are very very helpful specially the pronunciation its great thank you so much
please I want a video about how to pronounce the “T”
when it comes in the end of the word in some sentences
some times you don’t pronounce the t you kind of like stop the air from your mouth
like “I didn’t know” you probably say I didn(stop) know
And many words i hope you get it.
I’m waiting you for answer. Thanks

Saturday, June 13th 2015

    Hi Ahmad,

    Actually, there will be a lesson on this soon :)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

very useful we can learn a lot of english

Saturday, June 13th 2015

Hello, first i would like to thank all of you” Engvid staff”… you have been really helpful..I just got my Ielts result..I got 6.5 .. I am not surprised because I was expecting this good result thanks to your help & support…I wish you all good luck. :)

Saturday, June 13th 2015

    Congratulations Asmaasaad :)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

Adam, please tell me which is correct:
1 I caught MANY fish(es) yesterday.
2 I caught MUCH fish yesterday.
Or are both correct?

And couldn’t you help me to find somewhere a list of fruits,vegetables which is uncountable.
Thank you.

Saturday, June 13th 2015

    I caught many fish is correct (though some people say fishes and it’s becoming more acceptable ( I personally don’t like it, but…))

    All fruits and veggies can be made countable by looking at the whole. For example, cabbage is uncountable, but a head of cabbage is countable.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

      Thank you Adam. Of course I’d like to know more uncountable veggies like cabbage.

      Sunday, June 21st 2015

        Anything that comes in a head (lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower,etc.)

        Most leafy things that come in a bunch (parsley, dill, spinach, etc.)

        Think of your supermarket. What else can’t you (realistically) count individually?

        Saturday, July 11th 2015

that is very useful , Guys if anyone like to speak & chatting english can add my Skype: amdauamdau that’s will be very helpful to improving our language *^▁^*

Saturday, June 13th 2015

Adam, you’re wonderful teacher.

Sunday, June 14th 2015

Thank you very much for that great lesson about vocab at the gym.I just wanted to ask one question: I know what it means do squats and I also know that you use that word (squat) to mean”anything”, but is it common to hear that word to mean anything? for instance: that doesn’t mean squat.

Monday, June 15th 2015

    lol.

    Good question Dick95. When we use it as slang, it actually means ‘nothing’. It comes from diddly-squat.
    so if that doesn’t mean squat, it means nothing.

    It’s very American slang. People from England, for example, might not be familiar with it.

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

      ok Adam. Thank you very much (Y).

      Saturday, June 20th 2015

I got 10, tks Adam

Anyone that want practise some english add my facebook

skype : ricky.fiebig1

Monday, June 15th 2015

Adam, one more question. Which is correct?
In the classroom
1 Hello. We will speak English at our lessons.
2 Hello. We will speak English in our lessons.
3 Hello. We will speak English on our lessons.
Can I say: We will speak English during our lessons?
Thank you.

Monday, June 15th 2015

    Adam, excuse me, I’ve got more:
    1 We need move TV to the next room
    2 We need move TV at the next room
    3 We need move TV in the next room
    (the TV have to be moved from one room to the other)

    In English textbooks written ‘In the street’ but I hear in movies ‘On the street’. Please help.

    Tuesday, June 16th 2015

    You can use ‘in’ or ‘during’. If you want to emphasize, use ‘throughout’.

    We need to move the TV into the next room.

    in the street is more British, and on the street more American.
    Of course different situations will need to be more specific.
    I live at 10 Main Street.
    I live in/on Main Street. (US-on, BR-use either)

    Hope this helps. :)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

      Thank you very much.

      Sunday, June 21st 2015

Hello Adam, this video reminds me all the Push-ups an Sit-ups I did when I was in the military. I guess I need to work out again, long time did’t hit the gym. Thank you for your video.

Tuesday, June 16th 2015

Hello, Adam. I’m Cambodian student,and I love English so much, but I am not good at it. I usually watch your videos and other teachers in Engvid. It’s so interesting for me. Now, I have ambiguous point in Interrogative Pronoun. I want to know exactly that the interrogative pronoun (who, what, and which) are plural, singular, or depending on the context when their functions are subject in the sentence?

Tuesday, June 16th 2015

    Hi Sunrise,

    When these pronouns are the subject, they are usually singular because we want a singular answer:

    Who knows the answer? (even if many people know the answer, I am asking for individuals)
    What is happening? (what action)
    Which is your favourite colour? (which one)

    When these pronouns are objects, then the verb will agree with the subject:
    What does she do? (sub = she) What do they do? (sub = they).

    If you are not sure, answer the question:
    Who knows the answer? I know it; she knows it; we know it; etc.

    What does she do? she teaches.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

Great :) I learned a lot :)

Wednesday, June 17th 2015

Hi Adam!
Could U explain me, please, what the difference is between words “spotted”, “speckled”, “flecked” and “mottled”?
Thanks in advance!

    Hi Exotist,

    These are patterns on things (animals). The best way to see the differences between them is to put each word into the Google search box, then click on images. You will see the differences there. Using words won’t really make it clear, I think.

      Thank U! :)

thanks Adam

Thursday, June 18th 2015

Thank you. and how I start conversation to other people in the gym?

Thursday, June 18th 2015

    Hi Pgansukh,

    You can ask someone to “spot” you, which means they will stand close as you lift heavy weights and make the weights don’t fall on you. After that, you can begin a conversation, or offer to spot for them.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

Thank you so much

Friday, June 19th 2015

Thanks

Friday, June 19th 2015

Thise is my third lesson. My problem is.. I don’t learne well..
I just watch the video and I feel watching isn’t useful for me!
what should I do more than watching to learn English well ??

Friday, June 19th 2015

    Hi Emi,

    I think the best way to learn English is to read a lot. This way you will see grammar being used correctly, and you will learn many new words. Then, listening will become easier as well.

    But at the end of the day, it’s all about practice and patience. Just keep trying. It will get easier. :)

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

      To read… Hmmm, I needed to know that! Thanks for the tip!

      Thursday, June 25th 2015

Could you please tell me what the original word of “Reps” is ? I want to see the written form please!

Friday, June 19th 2015

    Hello, it is short for “repetitions”.

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

    Hi Adnan,

    David got it right. It is repetitions.

    Saturday, June 20th 2015

10/10. Hi Adam, good classes, good teacher, right answers!

Saturday, June 20th 2015

That last question was tricky but i learn a lot from this video thank you Mr Adam.

Saturday, June 20th 2015

Thanks everyone :)

Saturday, June 20th 2015

Hello Adam,
Can you please tell me How can i find out when to use tobe verbs or todo verbs in a sentence.
Thanks.

Saturday, June 20th 2015

    Hi Bakhtyari,

    Use do with actions and be with situations. You can also use be with -ing verbs in a continuous tense or in the passive voice.

    I’ll see if I can make a more detailed lesson about this :)

    Sunday, July 12th 2015

Got 9 on 10! The last question was really tricky :D

Monday, June 22nd 2015

Hi Adam، interesting lesson, I really enjoyed it, but is it possible to talk about bodybuilding movements and sets ? Thanks in advanced

Monday, June 22nd 2015

    I’ll get on it Blackmak :)

    Saturday, July 11th 2015

I liked it, thanks!

Monday, June 22nd 2015

Hi Adam
Could you Please do a lesson about When do we use “had had” and “have had ?
Thanks a lot

Monday, June 22nd 2015

    Hi Ledan,

    It’s a difference between present perfect (have had) and past perfect (had had). Remember that the second use of the have verb is the main verb (possession) and the first is the auxiliary (helping) verb.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, July 11th 2015

I can’t understand reps and sets,
and thank you
its very usefull

Tuesday, June 23rd 2015

    Hi Ravi,

    Reps = repetitions (example, 12 times)

    Sets = number of times you do a group of repetitions.

    3 sets of 12 reps = 36

    Does this help?

    Saturday, July 11th 2015

Dear Adam, thank you very much!

Tuesday, June 23rd 2015

Great lesson!

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

Thank you adam it is a nice lesson

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

thanks a lot

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

Thank you Adam I was wondering if you could make a lesson How to make a clear distinction between (Teach and learn) (Drill and train)

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

    Hi Steve,

    Teach is what the person who has the knowledge does. Learn is what the person trying to gain the knowledge does. So… a teacher teaches, and a student learns.

    Drill means practice. Train is a synonym to teach.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, July 11th 2015

Adam I was wondering if you could make a lesson How to make a clear distinction between (Teach and learn) (Drill and train)

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

I got 6 correct out of 10 :( Anyway, thanks a lot for the lesson Adam! Well, it’s studying we hit!!! :-D

Thursday, June 25th 2015

lol :)))) love handles! :))))) uff.. it was so funny! but.. nevertheless there are some common things in love and sport ;)

Thursday, June 25th 2015

    My brother from another mother=) I think we all know that love handles refer to woman=) Adam is just a polite guy)

    Monday, June 29th 2015

When I am going to Gym often request to someone spot me

Friday, June 26th 2015

I would like to start with this lessons to improve my English, but I don’t know what is my level, how can I know that? Is there here any test to know it?
Thanks a lot :)

Friday, June 26th 2015

    Hi Marieht,

    If you put “english level test” into the Google search box you will get a few sites that will test your level for you.

    But, on Engvid we have videos for all levels, so you should watch them all and get practice even if they are too difficult. It will become easier as you go.

    Sunday, July 12th 2015

    I’d like to add you on Skype, if don’t mind
    thanks

    Sunday, February 7th 2016

thanks

Saturday, June 27th 2015

This lesson is really great I love it …because I really need to know all these vocabulary because I go to the gym everyday after work …. but the thing that I’m confused about that how we use them in sentence like the word barbell do we say let’s do barbell or what or do we say let’s get on the treadmill I don’t really understand how to stick them in sentences

Saturday, June 27th 2015

    Good point Alexander,

    Most of the equipment in the gym you use, right? So use the verb use for these. Anything with weights, you lift. A type of exercise, you do (do pushups, do aerobics, etc.)

    Today I’ll do 50 pushups. Then I’ll lift some weights/barbells. After that I’ll use the treadmill and walk/jog five miles. Etc.

    Does this help a little?

    Sunday, July 12th 2015

Quiz matched with the instructive video
really a wonderful,productive combination for learners
funny and helpful

Sunday, June 28th 2015

i do gym work-out more often.
but i only got 8/10 score.

Monday, August 10th 2015

hi Adam . I love your teaching I saw one of your video in my uncle’s laptop and i decide to come here aned use your teaching but my english is very bad:-(
one thing else i cannot see your videos in this page!

Sunday, August 16th 2015

thanks bro!!!!

Sunday, August 16th 2015

thank you for the lesson, but i can’t understand the mean of “get in shape”

Monday, August 17th 2015

    “In shape” = physically fit. So if you get tired after climbing some stairs or lifting heavy things, you might say you’re “out of shape” and need to “get back in shape”.

    Wednesday, August 19th 2015

      Aha,Thank you so much

      Tuesday, August 25th 2015

Most people do go to the gym, to show off their love handles. lol

Wednesday, August 19th 2015

Adam thank you for this lesson. I am learning a lot watching your videos.

Thursday, August 20th 2015

Thanks Adam for your lessons! They all are very useful for me. Practising my English in engvid is like going to a real English lesson, and one of the adavantages is that I can also choose the topic of the video I’m more interested in! This is a proof that shows people how “easy” learning English could be

Friday, August 21st 2015

Thank you Adam, I find it’s the best way for me to learn English by watching your video , and the following test is very helpful.

Tuesday, August 25th 2015
