Hello,
i am an English teacher who is about to use your wonderful vids. in my class.could you tell me how are your levels related to standards like the CEF or others?

Regards,
Khaled Mahmoud

    Hi Khaled,

    We have lessons at all levels and we don’t necessarily benchmark them to any standardized levels. We use beginner, intermediate, and advanced markers, but these vary within their own levels as well.

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

This is not an easy topic, really! Congratulations for the skillful and smart way you manage things.

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

thank you for the topic. i am 4 months pregnant now.

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

    Good luck Ratuwulan :)

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

Making a baby is easier than understanding this advanced, exploratory, baby lesson.

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

    LOL

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

Thanks, Adam.
May I ask in this kind of sentence ‘there is sth + verb + …’ the verb should be base form or not?

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

    I would like ask one more questions
    The situation of class can we say ‘class atmosphere’or ‘class vibe’? Or there is any other term?
    Besides, how about the situation of school? ‘school atmosphere’?
    Thanks in advance.

    Friday, May 13th 2016

    Hi Sophie,

    In most cases I’d say it’s the infinitive (There is something to do…). Otherwise it might be the gerund, though not acting as a verb.

    As for school, atmosphere and vibe essentially mean the same thing. Vibe is more of a slang word, so more casual.

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

love this lesson more
you are great teacher

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

Hi Adams! Thanks for this lesson, it is really important to learn about. Since I have a 18 months son, I can say I was a bit familiar with some words, but some of them I did not know until now.

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

Hi Adam! As a medical doctor I really have to congratulate you. This lesson is clear, complete and I have to admit that I learned a lot (not about the pregnancy ) of vocabulary.
You always seem to be “in a good shape”. Do you have a secret? Thanks a lot.

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

Thank you very much Adam!!
Nice and useful lesson as always ;)

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

Thank you Adam, for your good advice.
I will think of you the next time that the weather will be rainy and there won’t be anything good on the TV.

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

Hello Adam. Thank you for this great lesson. This is a very useful vocabulary.

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

lesson really helpful. Thank you very much Adam, I laugh many times when studying and listening your lesson.

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

A great lesson Adam. I learnt a lot through this.

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

Thank you, Adam! Very important for me in the future. I intend on being a Mom someday. I hope I become a great Mom. I hope to put wonderful people in the world.

That thing the babies drink milk in is called a BOTTLE or it has a specific name?

Do you have kids, Adam? :D

Bye-bye!
See you!
All the best to you and your family!
:*

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

    Thank you Renata,

    Yes, just a plain old baby bottle.

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

      Thank you! I really appreciate improving my English with you.

      Thursday, May 19th 2016

*I intend to be a Mom…

Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

Thank you, Adam, for this interesting vocabulary lesson!

Having a baby, when not by accident, as you said, is a very difficult and heavy decision, which brings a lot of responsibilities for years and years to come. Nonetheless, after this tough phase, if the outcome is affirmative, one have to congratulate the spouse and yourself for this new life.

Verba volant. Scripta et video manent :)

Wednesday, May 4th 2016

Thank you for this sweet lesson.Really I have learnt new vocabulary.

Wednesday, May 4th 2016

Thanks, Adam.

Wednesday, May 4th 2016

Very interesting lesson. Your way of teaching is great! The story of having a baby you want to deliver is easy to understand to me. Although i don’t know the meanings of vocabulary about having a baby, but i could guess what they mean though the story you were telling

Wednesday, May 4th 2016

You must be a teacher of biology!!!

Wednesday, May 4th 2016

Hello of all ,Thank you Adam , It is really interesting lesson , especially the medical terms , at least students may know the english expression in the right place , i am really delighted about what you do Adam , continue progressing , many thank you for all and good luck .

Thursday, May 5th 2016

thank you for the lecture teacher :) Does anyone know what “suck away” means by the way?

Thursday, May 5th 2016

    Hi Sodojsa,

    In most cases it’s a slang term meaning ‘takes’. The boss sucked away all my desire to work hard — the boss took my desire so that I don’t have it anymore.

    Is this what you meant? (it’s hard to know exactly without more context)

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

Thanks Adam. One more time another great lesson.

Thursday, May 5th 2016

Hello adam I’m understanding same of your lesson because I have lettle english ..
I hope my language will be better with this website.

Thursday, May 5th 2016

Great lesson!
These words and expressions will certainly help me to understand better english language.

Thursday, May 5th 2016

Thank you, Adam. Great lesson, like always!
I have a question. What is the difference between Childbed and Childbirth?

Thursday, May 5th 2016

    Hi Erica,

    To be honest, I had to look up childbed. It is the condition of giving birth. I had never heard it before. It might just be old-fashioned.

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

Great lesson!!

Friday, May 6th 2016

The lesson is great. Thanks Adam.

Friday, May 6th 2016

Your lesson has a lot of complicated things but you managed to get them across so simply. Thank you!

Thank you,Adam! To me it is very useful information in English because I am working with the babies in Day Care Chid Center.

Sunday, May 8th 2016

Thank you so much. I love these!

Sunday, May 8th 2016

Thank you, Adam. I found out this video very valuable! I have something to share with you. When I was a beginner it was difficult to study even simple videos, I just learnt and learnt any EngVid lessons that I could. But now plenty of them are quite boring to me because I don’t get anything new. This one is a real treasure. I watched several times. Interesting topic, new words for my vocabulary and your great manner to explain. Well done, Adam! It’s amazing work!

Sunday, May 8th 2016

    Thank you Lakrat. I’m glad you’re good enough to be bored now :)

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

Adam! Thank you a lot.I am a new student. I love your videos.
Sir, I have a question that why we write English alphabets in capital and small form? We can write in capital form or in small only then why the combination of small and capital letters?
Thanks

Tuesday, May 10th 2016

    Welcome Abajan :)

    We use capitals for proper names of things or to indicate we are starting a new sentence.

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

love this topic, adam !

Tuesday, May 10th 2016

Hello I would like to talk fluently English? I’m learning this wonderful language but I need really more practice. Someone know how I could do that ??????

Tuesday, May 10th 2016

    Maybe someone in this forum will be in touch with you :)

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

very good!!!!!!

Tuesday, May 10th 2016

I am having a baby now. The words is helpful. Thanks very much.

    Congratulations Leodknuth :)

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

thanks Adam, this lesson is more difficult, but never ever give up!I´m from Brazil!

Thursday, May 12th 2016

Hi Adam, I’m a novice for this website and you’re my favourite teacher. Could you explain the difference
between cradle and crib, please?

Friday, May 13th 2016

    Hi Ludima,

    A crib is more like a bed with a cage around it. A cradle is smaller and often moves back and forth to help get the baby to sleep. If you do an online search for images you will see the difference.

    Thursday, May 19th 2016

No matter how many hardships I encounter you are helping me by publishing your lectures on the Youtube thanks :)

Sunday, May 15th 2016

Happy Birthday, Adam!

    Thank you Bellamari :)

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

I’ve already asked my parents where come babies from?? Thank Adam LOL

Monday, May 23rd 2016

If the baby starts crying you need to breastfeed or nurse (which is another good word) the baby. Formula is a last resort if you are really concerned about your baby’s health. Are you aware that among the special nutrients in the formula is palm oil, which is not good even for adults. If you have issues with breastfeeding find a consultant, maybe you would need to learn how to latch on to the breast (2) properly and what to do if you experience engorgement (3). Also,many babies need to be burped (4) after feeding, as they might become colicky (5) and fussy. Some parent calm down their babies by practicing safe co-sleeping (6).

Monday, May 23rd 2016

    Or it’s time to change a baby diaper :)

    Wednesday, May 25th 2016

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

I love this lesson. Thanks

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

is knocked up is less polite than a bun in the oven?

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

    lol. It’s a slang expression Mohamed.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

thank you Adam.

Friday, June 10th 2016

Thursday, June 23rd 2016

a bit hard to remember about the vocabularies, and i’m going to choose subject of practical nursing. Do you have some idea to remember vocabularies? Thank you for your helpful lessons.

Friday, June 24th 2016

    the key is repeating .. repeat repeat and repeat, you can also practicing speaking with another person, i guess that is the best way to remember vocabulary.

    Thursday, July 7th 2016

Dear Adam, thank you for this great and useful lesson. I want to ask you to make a video about women diseases. I am sure that it would be very helpful for all women around the world who have immigrated to other countries and English is their second language.

Thanks in advance :)

Friday, July 8th 2016

thank you very much for your great effort ^_^

Monday, July 11th 2016

Really nice

Tuesday, July 12th 2016

GOD BLESS YOU MORE FOR THIS GREAT VIDEO AND HELPFUL IDEAS YOU WERE SHARING TO PEOPLE EAGER TO LEARN ENGLISH. THANKS ADAM

As a student of biology, I found it very interesting. Like the way have described step by step. Regards

Tuesday, July 12th 2016

it was very easy…i think that because i’m a Doctor…so thank you very much Adam and appreciated

Monday, July 18th 2016

thank you teacher

Sunday, July 24th 2016

Wow buddy! Was an awesome and fun lesson, I learned a lot with you, even more that i had thought, new words, expressions, slags and more. You did it again! As good teacher I suppose that you research before giving a class because of you have explained easily. If may I give you an advice… make sure the next time, do a chronology time line, this to not go back at the beginning and then to the last part and then to middle part, I think you know what I mean, your scheme was helpful but if i were you, i would had put in this order:
Conceive/conception (sperm,egg)
Pregnant, knocked up, have a bun in the oven.
OBGYN-Obstetrician,gynecologist-midwise
Due-date
Trimester-zygote-embryo-fetus-baby
Contractions- go into labor-give birth-deliver
Epidural-Cesarean-(c-section)
Umbilical cord -cut the cord.
Diapers-formula-cradle-crib-stroller-pacifier.

Ah! Please let me know if i made mistakes, my worst English skill is the writing, so,I try to write as many times as i can, and of course read, read and read!
Keep up with this amazing job!
All the best!

Tuesday, July 26th 2016

Thank you Adam.

Friday, July 29th 2016

“You don’t know what to do, you conceive a baby.” This made me laugh for a minute!

Saturday, July 30th 2016

Hi Adam.
We Japanese often translate many things from English. For example, in this case, crib is said “baby bed”, stroller is called “baby car”. Not only those kind of things, but there are many things translated/transformed for Japanese. Thus, if we say something mistranslated, native speakers often don’t understand what we mean lol.

Thursday, August 4th 2016

Thank you a lot Adam!I am a new student here)So i took two quizzes (1st about internet words and 2nd about pregnancy)So in the 1st test i got 10 correct answers but here only 8!Therefore i know more about internet than about pregnancy. LOL! Anyway thank you again it was funny)))

Saturday, September 3rd 2016

My older sister was born through a natural birth. I was born through a c-section.

Monday, September 5th 2016

Hi Adam! nice lesson, really appreciate it! I have a question related to babies! I even talked with one interpreter here in Ukraine about it (Hi from Ukraine by the way).The thing is the way you call strangers. In Russian there is the word “дядя” or “тетя” literally mean uncle and aunt, and these words related not only to family ties but also to any strange man and woman (especially used between little child and parent) When child walks in a park with his mom and approaches to stranger and tries talk to him, mom might suggest that this is “дядя” which sounds quit friendly whereas “stranger” seems to sound cold and alienated. The question is are there in English similar words to russian “дядя и тетя” ? Hope my question makes sense)))

Tuesday, September 13th 2016

    Hmmm, that’s a good question. The first term that comes to mind is “Auntie”, which is used in (among others) Indian and Caribbean English.
