Good job mr Adam ♡Nice lesson

I like u whether u like it or not ;) haha Lol

Friday, July 31st 2015

    hey how are you ? wanna be my friend okay ?

    Friday, July 31st 2015

      the quiz isn’t working ? is it?

      Saturday, September 5th 2015

    Putting into practice what you have just learned, eh? Good for you Rena! It seems to me that Adam has no other option.

    Bye for now.

    Saturday, August 1st 2015

    :)

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      hello,, firstly , i,d like to give you my compliments to teach such a good lesson ,, :) ,, but it was difficult to understand to me, however i got it, even a little ,, :D , could you please explain me again number 7,, its complicated for me,

      Friday, September 4th 2015

Very useful lesson!
:D

Friday, July 31st 2015

Thank you Adam for your useful lesson. I am in doubt, nonetheless. “6. I wonder if Tom will come to the party.” I was absolutely inaccurate in this case. Although the right answer was “both are correct”, I’d rather disagree because I was taught that we should avoid to use “if” with “will”. Thus the right answer had to be “whether” from my point of view. Could you explain this issue for me?

Friday, July 31st 2015

    Hi Gosha,

    You are confusing ‘if’ as a noun clause conjunction with ‘if’ used as a conditional clause conjunction. If you will study hard, you can pass the test– this sentence is incorrect because you can’t use if+will. But when used as a noun clause (to show option) it is ok.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      Hi, Adam.
      1) What’s the right for your example – “If you study hard, you will pass the test.” – That is?
      2) About N 6: I don’t understand the meaning – “I wonder whether Tom will come”… It means I wonder in any case? – he will come/he will not come/ he will die/ he will will sleep / …. , anyway I wonder ???

      Tuesday, August 18th 2015

        Sorry, I meant (N 6) – Tom will come or Tom won’t come – in both case I wonder ??

        Tuesday, August 18th 2015

          I had the same question until I opened dictionary and understood:

          “I wonder” in this case is not “be surprised”, “I wonder” = “I ask myself”
          or “I’m interested”.
          So I wonder whether Tom will come to the party OR NOT COME – is correctly.

          Monday, August 24th 2015

          Hi Vev,

          I’m not sure if you had the same issue as Ranger, in which wonder means be curious or ask myself. So I wonder if he will come, means I am not sure and am curious whether he will come or not.

          1 is correct ;)

          Tuesday, September 8th 2015

          I understand. Thank you!

          Tuesday, September 8th 2015

        1- yes

        2- I am curious to find out if he will come or not

        Thursday, September 24th 2015

Oh God! I was terrible in this quiz.I`ve just got 5 correct out of 10. I will have to study this lesson again and again and again

Friday, July 31st 2015

Very useful thank you :)

Friday, July 31st 2015

Great lesson! Thank you, Adam :)

Friday, July 31st 2015

    could we speak in english in private

    Saturday, July 2nd 2016

Prof. Adam,
very nice lesson indeed. thank you kindly.H

Friday, July 31st 2015

Thank you Adan!!
Your lessons have helped me a lot.
this was the first teacher I know on engvid website, and now I can realize my improviment.
I cannot say thank you enough!!

Friday, July 31st 2015

Thank you, Adam! You make english grammar easier,

Friday, July 31st 2015

Aren’t the questions 6 and 10 the same case?
Why are the question 6 both if and whether and the 10 only whether?

Friday, July 31st 2015

    I think that I’ve found the answer:
    “We use whether and not if after prepositions” (Cambridge Dictionary Online)
    Is that really the case?

    Friday, July 31st 2015

    Hi Samuael,

    The preposition is part of the story, but the main idea is that in sentence 10, the ‘or not’ is understood and therefore not mentioned. But the idea of it is there. ‘depends on’ here, suggests that you will progress, but the speed will depend on A (try hard) or B (not try hard). If we used ‘if’ the idea would be that you wouldn’t progress at all, but we already know you will progress.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      hello adam I’ve got 7 to 10 on your lesson about if and whether is right?

      Tuesday, August 16th 2016

Tanks a million Mr Adam.it was great

Friday, July 31st 2015

Great Lesson Adam!
Thanks!
Jesus Loves you!
:D

Friday, July 31st 2015

Both correct but whether more better to use:p

Friday, July 31st 2015

Thank you

Friday, July 31st 2015

Thank you very much. Now I know they are not completely the same thank to you :)) “You are handsome whether people notice or not!” Am I correct? :)))

Friday, July 31st 2015

    If you say so Sebert ;)

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

Adam. As usual great lesson. It’s very useful study pair words. Often I think about it. I mean, when to use this word, or when use that word.Thank You.

Friday, July 31st 2015

Thanks alot mr Adam.You gave us a very very prasious and useful lessonAnd I hope you will always give us this type of lesson so once again thanks alot and a bundle of thanks

Saturday, August 1st 2015

what is nounphrase

Saturday, August 1st 2015

    I think this: for example, we have a structure: “to say to someone”, someone in this case is used as a noun. So when you say: “He said to his teacher that he couldn’t come.” According to the structure, you can see “someone” is “his teacher” in the sentence. So it’s a NOUN PHRASE. Because “his teacher” isn’t a noun, it’s a phrase but it’s used as a noun so it’s called noun phrase. Hope i am correct :)))

    Saturday, August 1st 2015

    Hi Mani,

    Sebert was close. A noun phrase is a phrase with a noun as the main focus and modifyers used to identify or describe the noun:

    the boy in my son’s second-grade class–this is a noun phrase with the boy being the main noun. The other parts identify which boy.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

Thank you!

Saturday, August 1st 2015

Thanks ! :-)

Saturday, August 1st 2015

Thank v much “Adam Sir”, awesome straightforward explanation,. :) .

Saturday, August 1st 2015

5/10 Ugh… I understood the lesson, the concept, but when comes the moment to chose between one or the other the sentences let me very confused. Anyway for me “if” in the majority of the cases and “whether” when is possible two alternatives. Thank you Adam.

Saturday, August 1st 2015

I got 80%
Thanks Adam

Saturday, August 1st 2015

Thanks a lot Mr.Adam. You’re doing a great job as usual very useful lessons.
The way you teach is amazing. Keep up the good work.

Saturday, August 1st 2015

Good lesson very usefull! Thanks!

I got a little question, hope it won’t bother you!
I know it’s not the topic but when you say for instance ” my key fell out of my pocket” Could you put “from” instead of “of”?
My key fell out From my pocket!
Thanks very much

Saturday, August 1st 2015

    Hi, there! I’m not a native speaker, but the two sentences have a different meaning for me. “My key fell out of my pocket” means it didn’t get in when you tried to put it in you pocket. In the other hand, “My key fell out from my pocket” means the key was inside your pocket but it fell out. Hope it helps

    Sunday, August 2nd 2015

    Hi Klownerz,

    Both can mean the same thing, but I would say the key fell from my pocket, without the ‘out’. The ‘from’ includes the ‘out’.

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

I don’t know why i felt that you were not energetic as always while explaining this lesson,Adam.:-/
Anyways,Thanks a lot for one more useful lesson :)
Take care :)

Saturday, August 1st 2015

    well, I think he is human, people don’t have to be always energetic or happy. And what is important, is that he is always willing to help others to learn.

    Monday, August 3rd 2015

      Yes,you are absolutely right iconica15.i agree with you.I always appreciate his kind cooperation and willingness to help us.He is the best teacher ever for us.I think this feelings come spontaneously when we care and love that person a lot and the same thing goes with Adam :)Take care.

      Monday, August 3rd 2015

        Thank you for your response Tejalkk, take care you too.

        Tuesday, August 4th 2015

      I don’t agree with either of you :-)
      As any other teacher on engVid, Adam does his job in an unbiased way. Maybe I can agree that each of them has their “style” of teaching or entertaining, but perfection doesn’t exist.
      Happy week start, guys! :-)

      Monday, August 3rd 2015

        Hi Antonella, I appreciate your comment, definitely Adam has a great style :).

        Tuesday, August 4th 2015

        I do appreciate your view,it is true that all engvid teachers have fantastic and unique teaching style due to which it has become interesting learning english:)
        Have a great week ahead to you all guys and take care :-)

        Monday, August 10th 2015

      well said!!!

      Friday, August 7th 2015

    :) perhaps you’re right Tejalkk. I think I filmed that one pretty late. I’ll be better in future :)

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      Thank you very much indeed for taking the time to consider my comment,Adam :-)

      Thursday, August 20th 2015

I got 10 at the second try. =)

Saturday, August 1st 2015

“I’m coming over, whether you like or not…” :-)
Oohhh :-O
That sounds–a little–insolent and haughty… Try and see what happens. If you like it… (You might regret it!) Ha ha ha.

Hey, teacher Adam, even if can’t believe it, I got 9 answers correct out of 10.
Anyway, please explain better to me the last sentence:
“How quickly you progress depends mostly on ______ you try hard.”
Why does this sentence accept both if and whether? I chose if because I think one has no option to progress if he doesn’t try hard (condition), at least a little.
Thanks :-)

Saturday, August 1st 2015

    I think in this case whether is replacing the word “regardless”. I don’t think “if” can do this function.

    Monday, August 3rd 2015

      Thank you, Carolina ;-)
      Your explanation makes sense.

      Monday, August 3rd 2015

        Hello everybody , hello Antonella
        I try to give my explaination to the sentence you mentioned earlier .
        The beginning of the sentence is ‘how’ and this interrogation expects to possibilities so ‘wether ‘ seems the good option . . If you work hard you will progess or if you don’t work with enough assiduity you won’t quickly progess . You just can say ‘ wether you try hard or not ‘ .’ Wether’ can’t be replaced by ‘ regardless ‘ in that case . Hope that helps .

        Tuesday, August 4th 2015

          Wow, tsamp! Your explanation is powerful.
          Thanks! :-)
          To be honest, I don’t remember now what I chose! Ha ha ha, poor me.
          I would now use ‘whether’ because it sounds better, but let’s leave out such hyperbolic doubts. I have more important things to think about in life.
          Thanks again :-)

          Tuesday, August 4th 2015

        Your welcome, hopefully I’m right, otherwise I’d appreciate some corrections.

        Tuesday, August 4th 2015

    According to the Macmillan Dictionary, after “the preposition” you have to put “whether” instead of “if”: << There are doubts about whether the system is safe.

    Thursday, August 6th 2015

      That’s true too Alessandro, but it’s also about the idea of how quickly you will progress, not if you will progress or not.

      Good point taken though :)

      Saturday, August 15th 2015

        Thank you Adam very very much, your explanation is very important because on Macmillan there isn’t it or, maybe, I haven’t realized again the explanation on Mac. In every case, thank you again. You are a great teacher as always!

        Sunday, September 6th 2015

    Hi Antonella,

    Actually, I think it only accepts whether for #10. The question isn’t whether you will progress or not. You will progress. The question is how quickly, so the speed depends on whether you try hard or not, and the ‘or not’ is understood so not written.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      Thanks, Adam.
      I checked again that sentence by retaking the test and you are right :)

      Sunday, August 16th 2015

      Precisely, the question is ‘if you try hard you’ll progress quickly if not you won’t progress so quickly’. So the question is ‘if you do something or not’ = ‘whether you do something or not’ ( no need to write ).
      Two things/choices, one or another.
      #3. Why not the red one, the dark one and so on? Because the answer could be :’ Neither of them, he took the yellow one’.
      What is my mistake?

      Saturday, February 20th 2016

Very usefull information. At extra classes we learnt about if|whether, but they didn’t explain the differences between them, so I just want to thank you Adam.

Saturday, August 1st 2015

thanks you adam

Saturday, August 1st 2015

Thanks MR :Adam

Saturday, August 1st 2015

All needed! Thank you so much! :))

… I will give money back to you as soon as I can whether today or tomorrow. ^.^
( I wonder if my sentence is correct ? or
( I wonder whether my sentence is correct? and
( I wonder whether someone could answer me, please.)

Thank you, Adam for this interesting lesson.

Saturday, August 1st 2015

    “I will give you your money back as soon as I can, (be it) today or tomorrow (at the latest)”

    Monday, August 3rd 2015

      Hi Mauro,
      You are nice. I am very glad to have your answer; plus, I have just learnt one sentence from you.
      Thanks for your feed back. My best to you.

      Monday, August 3rd 2015

    Hi Chloe,

    Mauro gave a good answer. Actually, when you are in doubt about a structure, just use a different one that you are sure of.

    I will give the money back to you as soon as I can whether today or tomorrow.– in this case, say either as soon as I can OR either today or tomorrow. Saying both is redundant.

    I wonder whether/if my sentence… both ok, but I’d go with ‘if’ :)

    Regardless,

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      To my favorite teacher Adam.

      To my favorite teacher Adam.

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy good lesson Mr adams

Saturday, August 1st 2015

Hi, Adam, I understood the lesson, but I was confused choosing the correct answers. I got only 60. Bye! Júlio César.

May you make a video about phonetics transcription. :)

Saturday, August 1st 2015

    I’ll see what I can do Sameh ;)

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

Thank you very much for teaching. I could not understand regardless. When do we use “regardless” related to “whether”

Thanks,

Respectfully,

Ariunbolor Purvee

Saturday, August 1st 2015

    Hi ariunbolor,

    Regardless of whether you believe me or not, you are the right person for the job.
    Regardless means ‘it doesn’t matter’. I believe what I believe and your opinion is not going to change that.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

Thank you Adam, it´s was very helpful.

Saturday, August 1st 2015

i got 8 out of 10..ha ha ha

Saturday, August 1st 2015

Adam, I am confused with the use of, if or Whether, when a word is used as the other or when both.

Saturday, August 1st 2015

    Hi Gil,

    Watch the video again. Can you give me a specific example?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

I like the way you teach. Thanks for helping me learning English.

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Good lesson with good examples! I got 10 of ten! Thanx!

    I like it :)

    Thanks Valery

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

Dear Respected Sir Adam,
I have a question? The below mentioned phrase is not comparative then why we are using whether here? Please advice
“How quickly you progress depends mostly on whether you try hard”

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

    He’s said the ‘or not (Regardless)’ is implicit.
    “How quickly you progress (OR NOT) depends monstly on whether you try it hard.”

    Tuesday, August 4th 2015

    Hi Farina,

    We are discussing whether you will progress quickly or progress not quickly; we are not asking if you will progress or not.

    Does this help?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

Very useful lesson indeed

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

As a learner this time i got 5 out of 10.This shows i have to improve myself.

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Thank you :)

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

That become much clearer ^^ Thank U

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Hi Adam
it is more complicated than I thought.I Have to practice thousand time.
thank you

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

    Yep! A thousand is a good number. For me it’s not enough. Haha! ¬¬

    Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Thank you very mucho for the video.

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Hey, I have a question about 2nd quiz question:
“Please let the front desk know _________ you need extra towels.”
Right answers are both (if, whether), but logically we should call front desk only if we need extra towels, so there is only 1 right answer – if.
Am I wrong?

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

    Hi Icebeer,

    Technically, you’re right. I didn’t provide enough context. However, Some people always want extra towels, so once they check the room they can decide whether they have enough or not.

    Good point made , though. I’ll take care with context in future.

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      Sorry, another point. In some formal situations, people will use whether instead of if just for the formality of it. That;s a choice though.

      Saturday, August 15th 2015

Thanks Adam for this great video.
If I want to master this piece of grammar, I have to practice more and more whether it’s difficult or not.
I’m looking forward to watching your next video.
Thanks again.

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

thanks adam :)

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Impossible to remember all this rules…

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

This lesson was the most confusing I’ve found so far…

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Thank you.

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Damn! I got 6/10. I’m a grammar lover, but WHETHER and IF really got me confused. I’ll do as you said, I’ll use IF with conditionals and WHETHER when I’m talking about 2 alternatives. This way it doesn’t get so confusing. But, sometimes I know I’ll come across people using both. People are free to choose. Haha!

It was a great lesson, very important to see. Thank you, Adam! ;)

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Thanks! I like this lesson whether you like it or not.

Monday, August 3rd 2015

Thank you Adam I got 5 correct out of 10 . Your lesson quite difficult for me. But it is useful.

Monday, August 3rd 2015

Thank you Adam I am a new student Thanks

8/10 Thank you teacher Adam! I learned something today. I am a happy student! =)

Monday, August 3rd 2015

I like to study English whether I got worse test points or not.

I like this lesson whether my friend like it or not !!! :)

Monday, August 3rd 2015

i got 90%
thank you adam

Monday, August 3rd 2015

great lesson. Thanks again!

Monday, August 3rd 2015

Thank you, Adam! That really helped!
I have a question but it’s not about this lesson. When I speak in English with somebody and I talk about the future I get confused with using ”will’ and ‘going to’. What is the difference between these two and when do we use each of them? I ask my teacher about it but I still don’t get it but when I watch your videos and everything I didn’t understand at school gets clear thanks to you. :) So I will be happy if you explain it for me! :)
Thanks in advance! :) Have a nice day. :)

Monday, August 3rd 2015

    You want to live in the USA, too, huh? :D It’s been my dream ever since I was a child, but I didn’t know a word back then, and I feared living there because of the language. But nowadays I’m very fluent in English and I think I can have a pretty good life there. I hope you get to live there, too. ;D

    Monday, August 3rd 2015

      Hey, nice to meet you! Thanks a lot, happy to hear that your dream came true! Whoa, leaving in the USA and learning the language at the same time, that’s impressive! There’s hope for me :D

      Monday, August 3rd 2015

        I think you misunderstood. Hehe! My dream didn’t come true yet. I’m still living in Brazil. Nice to meet you, too.

        Do you want to talk on Skype?

        Monday, August 3rd 2015

          Tuesday, August 4th 2015

          Thank you!

          Wednesday, August 5th 2015

      That was my dream too until I got here an have to pay tolls, tickets and taxes, heheh just kidding, its a great place and people is great too. I live in Florida, and there are people form all over the world here what makes it even more exiting, I though that I would never leave my country but I’ve learned that nothing is impossible, so keep learning English, you’re going to need it, and never give up on your dreams Renata.

      Tuesday, August 4th 2015

        Oh, that is so comforting! Thanks a lot! :)

        Wednesday, August 5th 2015

    Hi Annie,

    Use will when talking about the future that you decided on at the time of speaking. For example, if you just got the idea to go to the beach and someone asks “what will you do this weekend?”, say I’ll go to the beach. Going to is used when you had already decided before and maybe even made some plans. In this case, you would say “I’m going to the beach”.

    Also, for immediate present action, use will– the doorbell rings, and you say I’ll get it (now).

    Does this help?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

Very useful lesson!
Thank you, Adam!

Monday, August 3rd 2015

so good lesson.
whether you like this lesson or not, i like it. lol

Monday, August 3rd 2015

Thank you. I got 2 out of ten.

Monday, August 3rd 2015

Cool!!!

Monday, August 3rd 2015

Thanks Adam for this difficult, but very useful lesson!

Whether to use if or whether is a somewhat complex decision, however, whether we like or not, this issue must be tackled.

Monday, August 3rd 2015

It has been very hard for me, I got confused. My score was 4.0……bad, very bad.
I need your help, Adam.

Hi Adam, as you are the best teacher, without any exaggeration, please teach us some common expressions in English that are useful for TOEFL exam .I cannot find them at ENGVID.com

Wednesday, August 5th 2015

    I’ll get on it Kian :)

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

Sir, what is the difference between less and lesser. I get totally confused about those aforementioned words. I would be highly thankful to you if you make a video discussing the differences….Waiting for the video…Thank you..

Wednesday, August 5th 2015

    Hi Apurba,

    Less is a comparative adjective (I have less money than you). Lesser is an adjective of quality (His car is of a lesser brand than mine).

    less — more
    lesser — better

    Does this help? I’ll see what I can do about a video

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      Thank you sir, thank you very much.You do not even know yourself, How much I owe you for this. It is not like that I did not take the help of others….I watched many a videos to find out the difference between them, but I could not get until I got to know that lesser is the opposite word of best……Thank you….Thanks a ton..

      Sunday, August 16th 2015

        Sorry mistyped I actually wanted to say LESSER IS THE OPPOSITE WORD OF BETTER’.

        Sunday, August 16th 2015

hello Adam thank you for the lesson i got 8/10 :)

Wednesday, August 5th 2015

Best lesson Mr. Adm.

Thursday, August 6th 2015

I like the lesson, thanks)
But I don’t understand one point. There was a sentence “Do you know _________ he took the blue one or the white one?” in the quiz, and it seemed to me that both if and whether were correct. The sentence is quiet like the second example in the video.

But I don’t understand one point. There was a sentence “Do you know _________ he took the blue one or the white one?” in the quiz, and it seemed to me that both if and whether were correct. The sentence is quite like the second example in the video. Where am I wrong?

Thursday, August 6th 2015

    But this comment is important because it contains my question!

    Thursday, August 6th 2015

      Hi Lilium,

      Here we have a direct choice between blue and white, so the correct answer is whether (not if), because we are asking about one or the other. (technically, you can use ‘if’, but then you are asking if I know or don’t know his actions, meaning he could have taken either one, both, or neither).

      Does this help?

      Saturday, August 15th 2015

        Yes, thank you!
        You’ve made it clearer to me.

        Wednesday, August 19th 2015

        If I got it right, the sense of the sentence depends on using ‘if’ or ‘whether’.

        Wednesday, August 19th 2015

          Indeed :)

          Tuesday, September 8th 2015

Hi everybody, guys who can write an essay about “express your remorse for buying a product”? actually I have no idea about it & I must do it for my English teacher, if you can, help me, please.

Thank Adam for the valuable lesson

Thursday, August 6th 2015

Useful! Thanks.

Thursday, August 6th 2015

Thank you Adam. You always helping me as usual.

Friday, August 7th 2015

Thank you Adam.

Friday, August 7th 2015

Thank you Adam, very useful and a bit difficult.

Friday, August 7th 2015

Пожалуйста кто знает 100%но, подскажите как правильно спросить по английски: “Как съездил в Москву?”(имеется в виду удачно или не очень). Обязательно используйте в начале ‘HOW WELL’.
How well………………….?
Спасибо.

Friday, August 7th 2015

Adam couldn’t you make a lesson about interrogative sentences which begin with HOW WELL,HOW MUCH,HOW LONG?
For instance: how long time ago (did) you went(go) to school? (sentences like this are difficalt for me(I mean their grammar))Thank you Adam.(it’s important and I think many others in this forum will
approve it)

Friday, August 7th 2015

    sorry like THESE/

    Friday, August 7th 2015

      Hi Katrin,

      I’ll see what I can do. In the meantime, remember that the adjective that follows ‘how’ contains the meaning of the question (how long ago = when in the past, how much time before…)

      Saturday, August 15th 2015

        So it must be: How long time ago did you go to school?

        Monday, August 17th 2015

          No need for time (how long means how much time).

          How long ago did you…

          Tuesday, September 8th 2015

thank you sir.
you are my favorite teacher and I ask you one thing pleadingly,I have been living in Australia

    Do a Google search. you will be surprised by the number of sites that offer all kinds of quizzes. :)

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

Thank you

Sunday, August 9th 2015

thanks a lot. It’s very useful

Sunday, August 9th 2015

Thank you, Adam! Your’re my favorite teacher))

Sunday, August 9th 2015

Thank you, Adam. But for me this lesson not very clear((

Sunday, August 9th 2015

Thank you. Adam! It is very interesting and clear lesson. I thought that I understand this lesson, but my test result is only 7 correct out of 10 :(
And I don’t understand my mistakes.
Question #2 – Please let the front desk know _________ you need extra towels. Why answer if is incorrect? IF you need extra towels THEN let know. It is condition, right?
Question #3 – Do you know _________ he took the blue one or the white one? I answered – both are correct
Question #10 – How quickly you progress depends mostly on ______ you try hard. I answered – both are correct

Could you, please, explain these questions?
Thanks!

Tuesday, August 11th 2015

    Hi Elena

    2- both are correct because whether is more formal (hotel worker to customer) and because some people automatically ask for extras. I should have given more context on that, but the formal part is still true.

    3- completely different meanings for each– whether– choice of blue or white. If I use ‘if’ then I am asking about your knowledge of his actions. Technically, can be correct, but not a common question– I would ask “do you know what he did?”
    10- one point is that you shouldn’t use if after a preposition. More importantly, though, is that the ‘or not’ is understood here. We are comparing quick progress vs. slow progress, not progress or no progress (how quickly suggests that progress is coming regardless)

    Does this help a little?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      Thank you for the reply, Adam! It does help me a lot.
      Question #2 is still not completely clear for me. But #3 and #10 became absolutely clear.
      Thanks so much for your lessons and answering our questions.

      Monday, August 17th 2015

        Thanks for your question.It’s all same to me.Now I understand by Adam’s answer.Thank u,Adam!
        But I feel that:
        Question #3 – Do you know _________ he took the blue one or the white one?
        is similar with
        Excample #2- Do you know if(whether) the exam is on Friday or Saturday.
        So I didn’t think of any more to choice the answer both.Maybe Question 3# he have more selection, Excample #2 exam is limited to a few day.Is this understand right?

        Thursday, June 9th 2016

          oh,He has more selections.The exam,a few days.

          Thursday, June 9th 2016

only 5/10, I thougth I got the point.
thx anyway.

Wednesday, August 12th 2015

    I’ll see about making a lesson for this Joseph :)

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

thank you so much Adam, and to be honest the method of teaching you use it’s very simple,understandable and useful .

Thursday, August 13th 2015

Adam please tell me, is there any diffrence between:
1 give me that
ahd
2 give it to me.
Thank you.

Thursday, August 13th 2015

    Essentially, no. :)

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

      thanks

      Monday, August 17th 2015

Hello Adam,Thank you so much for your teaching, I got the point 3/10 only, I will try to improve my english, but pls help me how I start to study english (Ex.: grammar, vocabulary …. which one first) Thanks

Friday, August 14th 2015

    Hi Anna,

    I would start with vocab and basic grammar structures like verb tenses and parts of speech. Then move to clauses and phrases and so on.

    Really, it’s up to you. Some people learn by doing, so engage more. Others learn by reading, so read more, etc. Find out what way you learn best, then build a program for studies from that.

    Good luck :)

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

I didn’t understand question 10.Can you please explain it?

Friday, August 14th 2015

    Hi Aminmeh,

    We use whether here because, one point, you shouldn’t use if after a preposition. More importantly, though, is that the ‘or not’ is understood here. We are comparing quick progress vs. slow progress, not progress or no progress (how quickly suggests that progress is coming regardless)

    Does this help?

    Saturday, August 15th 2015

sir, i want speak english with very well because coming 1 month i will attend the interview in my job career..so pls any one teachers and brothers and teachers correct me!!

Saturday, August 15th 2015

Thank you everyone :)

Saturday, August 15th 2015

Hi Adam thank you for shedding light on the topic that I’d been having problem with.If only we had facebook group on Facebook so that we can practice our english by chating each other on the group.

Sunday, August 16th 2015

good lesson

Sunday, August 16th 2015

Thanks Mr. Adam…I enjoy your teaching very much :D

Monday, August 17th 2015

Could you please tell me how to use independent and independence. Many Thanks

Monday, August 17th 2015

    Hi Joel,

    Independent is an adjective, independence is a noun.

    I want to be an independent person, but the only way to have independence is by getting a job and money.

    Does this help?

    Tuesday, September 8th 2015

Thank you, Adam.Great lesson.

Monday, August 17th 2015

tks for the class teacher, but in my opinion, when the “right answer is both are correct, if you choose one of them, the question must be correct, can you understand me?

Tuesday, August 18th 2015

    Hi Andrea,

    I do understand, but then it wouldn’t be entirely correct if you missed half the correct answer ;)

    Tuesday, September 8th 2015

Thx.That’s really helpful :D

Tuesday, August 18th 2015

It was a great lesson. The more we study, the less mistakes we ll do about this topic. Thanks a lot!!!

Wednesday, August 19th 2015

Very nice lesson

Thursday, August 20th 2015

Thank you. This is very practical.

Thursday, August 20th 2015

thanks. I’ve got 6 out of 10.
if I want to improve my English I have to study hard.

Thursday, August 20th 2015

Hi Adam, as always your lessons are fantastic: you explain everything in a clear and easy way to understand although still detailed and complete.

In this particular lesson I was just wondering if you can explain us a little bit better how we can distinguish a noun clause from an adverb clause as I am not sure I can say the difference between
“Do you know if Dan is coming? (noun clause)” and
“Let me know if you are coming” (adverb clause)

Thanks a lot and please, keep uploading new and wonderful lessons!

Saturday, August 22nd 2015

    Hi Benni,

    Fair enough. Try reversing the order:

    If Dan is coming, do you know?
    If you are coming, let me know.

    The second works as a conditional, the first does not.

    Although, technically, you can say the second one is using the noun clause as a complement.

    Does this help a little?

    Tuesday, September 8th 2015

According to your explanation, I undrestood that in the example:

Do you know _________ he took the blue one or the white one?

the answer could be “both are correct”, because of the “noun clause”. But the correct one is only “whether”.
Could you explain it a little more? Thanks…

Saturday, August 22nd 2015

    Hi Eortega,

    The question is more about the blue or the red, a choice, which suggests whether. If we used if, then the question is about your knowledge of his actions (he took the red, the blue, both, neither), so the meaning changes. That being said, if could technically be correct, but then you would likely change the question to begin with.

    Does this help?

    Tuesday, September 8th 2015

10 out of 10.thanks for the lesson adam

Sunday, August 23rd 2015

Hello Adam!
I just wanna say that I enjoy all your lessons!
But, actually, I got a little confused with this lesson… It’s a little complicated for me to understant that exist 2 ways: If and Whether.
So, I’ll keep practicing…
See you!

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

I have doubt in 9th question

Thursday, August 27th 2015

    Hi Mahesh,

    This is a condition: we will meet then if it is better for you.

    Does this make it clearer?

    Tuesday, September 8th 2015

8 out 10 not bad, Thanks Adam.

Friday, August 28th 2015

thanks a lot mr Adam :) you’re my favourite engvid teacher and your lessons really make learning English much more easy!

Saturday, August 29th 2015

    You are absolutely right Ms. TanyaRus and all the teacher of engvid are good

    Saturday, October 3rd 2015

Sunday, August 30th 2015

thank your mr Adam

Wednesday, September 2nd 2015

thankx mr Adam

Thursday, September 3rd 2015

sometimes I saw some people wrote ” if what or what if”
can u please expalin it to me when to use it?
thank you

Friday, September 4th 2015

    Hi Mang,

    If waht is the beginning of a conditional clause with a noun clause inside.

    What if is the beginning of a hypothetical question or scenario:

    I know you don’t like him, but what if you had to live with him?

    (not the best example, but hopefully you get the idea)

    Tuesday, September 8th 2015

thxx adam

Monday, September 7th 2015

Thanks for the explanation, Mr. Adam.
I have a question, does whether has the same meaning with ‘either’ and ‘neither’?

sincerely,
your student

Ibrahim

Monday, September 7th 2015

    Hi Ibrahim,

    No, those are prepositions that refer to one or both of two things.

    Tuesday, September 8th 2015

Hi Adam! thank you for the lesson!
but , I think there is a problems in those quizzes

the 10th ,I strongly feel that it should be like ” How quickly you progress mostly depends on How hard you would try.”

please tell me if I’m wrong.

Monday, September 7th 2015

    Hi Lklh,

    You’re not wrong:

    How quickly you progress mostly depends on how hard you try.

    But this is just another way of saying it.

    …on whether you try hard (or not)–this essentially provides the same option.

    Tuesday, September 8th 2015

Thank you for lesson! I got 9/10.

Monday, September 7th 2015

I’m confused but my score went well.. Yey! ;)

Monday, September 7th 2015

Thank you mr adam..nice lesson!

Tuesday, September 8th 2015

Tkanks alot

Wednesday, September 9th 2015

Hello,
Thank you Adam, it’s very interesting lesson,
Please, I can’t understand when we can use both of ” if ” and ” whether “

Wednesday, September 9th 2015

    Hi Bdouda,

    If the situation is one where two possibilities exist, you can use either one.

    I don’t know if this is right or not.
    I don’t know whether this is right or not.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

You are both handsome and clever thanks a lot :)

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Thanks Adam :) Great lesson!

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Sir, it was an awesome lesson.
Sir, please check if the following sentence is incorrect,
“I don’t know whether or not to eat something before dinner”.

Saturday, September 12th 2015

    Hi Apurba,

    “I don’t know whether or not to eat something before dinner”. this is ok.

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

      Thank you sir for giving the answer.
      Sir, would you please tell me which one is correct among the following sentences,
      “What did Steve Job die of?”
      “Why did Steve Job die of?”
      “How did Steve Job die of?”

      Saturday, September 26th 2015

Adam, I have a question. If a sentence ends with “or not”, we should use “whether” and can’t use “if”. Am I right? By the way thanks a lot for the lesson.

Saturday, September 12th 2015

Hiii Adam!
Should I use do or does with somebody, everybody, anybody.

Thanxxxx

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

    Hi Bahadorzadehalraisi,

    Use does (these are all singular pronouns).

    Thursday, September 24th 2015

6th point of the queez – I wonder _________ Tom will come to the party. Do you realy use “will” in condition clauses? I am not sure it is correct. I would say I wonder if(whether) Tom comes to the party.

Thursday, September 24th 2015

I got 70 points. I think I should watch this video again and try to figure it out.Anyway,thanks for this lesson.Oh! I almost forgot :)! Can you tell me the difference between using “should” and “better” in daily conversation?

Saturday, September 26th 2015

Thanks Adam for lovely lesson !

Sunday, September 27th 2015

thanxxxx Adam.

Tuesday, September 29th 2015

thanks Adam for your teaching

Tuesday, September 29th 2015

This lesson is so complicated, but you make it clear. Thank you so much.

Saturday, October 3rd 2015

I have a request. It would really very much apreciated if you could make a lesson about using WILL after IF. I know, it’s ok to use WILL after if as long as it’s not conditional. I tried finding such topics on the internet and i wasn’t satisfied with the given examples. Native speakers themselves can’t really explain when we can use it.
In the song by Savage Garden in the chorus : i would fly to the moon and back if YOU”LL be my baby….

Saturday, October 3rd 2015

I don t understand this lesson, i m confused by ….OR NOT. :(

Wednesday, October 7th 2015

thanks for your lesson!!

Sunday, October 11th 2015

Hi Adam, Thanks for lesson! Can you please explain why question 4 not having the right answer “both are correct” instead of “if”.
” Question-4. Can you let me know _______ anyone calls for me, please? “

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Even though your lesson is very clear, it is very hard to get the right one sometimes. It seems that you need either a little more context or information to exactly know which you should use between them.

Thursday, October 15th 2015

Thanks a lot, Adam! I have been waiting for this lesson!

Saturday, October 17th 2015

Thanks Adam

Tuesday, October 20th 2015

Can I mention three options when I use “If” ?

Would you like to upload the video about “WHEN AND WHILE” ? Because I am confused which one is proper to use in my writing. Thanks Mr. Adam.

Wednesday, October 21st 2015

Could you explain why the answer on number 7 and 9 is using if? I don’t get it well.

Wednesday, October 21st 2015

Very helpful, Thank you

Friday, October 30th 2015

Hi. Thanks for your amazing lessons. I had a question regarding if and whether. Can you tell me when we use commas in sentences with “if” or “whether”? Is there a situation where a comma can be optional? Thank you so much.

Tuesday, November 3rd 2015

Thanks Adam.7of10.

Saturday, November 7th 2015

Thanks fro the lesson
You rock !

Sunday, November 8th 2015

It’s clear for me when to use Whether… But I don’t know when to use Whether or if :(

Monday, November 9th 2015

Thanks for your lesson Adam!
I have a question about 2th
“Please let the front desk know _________ you need extra towels.”
The answer is both are correct.But do the answers”if”and”whether have the same meaning?
I think if I use “if” , “if you need extra towels” can be a conditional clause. is this right? thanks!

Saturday, November 21st 2015

It is not clear when both are possible. It seems it’s possible every time even if the meaning is different as explained with 2 otpions. Adam, Could you clarify ?

Saturday, November 28th 2015

    Is the “regardless” subtlety make the difference or the case when we can use both ?

    Saturday, November 28th 2015

Adam is the best teacher I’ve have in my life! thanks a lot! my english is improving day by day

Saturday, December 5th 2015

Thanks for new informations
You are really good at teaching.

Tuesday, December 8th 2015

The last question on the quiz I do not understand why both are correct , I thought it is conditional so I choosed if

Saturday, December 12th 2015

Thanks a lot mr adam it was a very informative lesson. You are the best teacher I’ve ever known.I hope you can help me in some other issues but I don’t know how to communicate with you directly so if you don’t mind give me your whatsapp number or your social account that you use most.^-^

Saturday, December 12th 2015

1)Let meknow ifyou are coming.
2)Let me nkow when you are coming.
Are this examples equal or have differences? Answer, please, it’s very important for understanding proper usage for “if”.

Sunday, December 13th 2015

Very good Adam ! you have been very clean, as always !

Tuesday, December 29th 2015

Good lesson Adam , but Iam having one doubt, in 10 the question why can’t we use if , could you clarify my doubt

Tuesday, January 5th 2016

Good Evening to Adam and to all. My name is Carla and I come from Italy. I have just found out engvid, it was suggested me by my English teacher. I am enjoying it very much, and I appreciated this and other lessons, thanks.
I wonder if weather, whether and wether have all same pronunciation.
Thanks!

Hi Adam, this lesson drives me crazy. I listened it three times, in three different moments. Every time it seems to me I got it, and so I do the quiz after.
First time I got 90%. Second 50% and this night, the last, 50% again.
I almost failed all answers about “both are correct”. I failed 2,3,4,9,10.
I cannot understand why.

    Saturday, April 23rd 2016

This test does not work correctly. I put for example *If* it shows me i put *whether* or *both are correct* supposedly. Why this test works such?

Sunday, February 28th 2016

Thank you 😀

Thursday, March 3rd 2016

Thank you for this lesson, Mr. Adam.
Yet I have a question.
If I want to say to a friend that I don’t know when the exam and also want to exaggerate my ignorance, can I say: “I don’t know if it is on Friday, Sunday or Monday.”
Here are more that three alternatives, the exam can be on Saturday as example. Would the sentence be grammatically correct? If not, how can I fix it?
Could you help me, please?

Saturday, March 12th 2016

Hello Adam,
First, thanks a lot for all your lessons.
It is very helpful for my understanding. I’m presently learning for the TOEIC exam.
About this lesson, I have a question.
In one of my test, I think have a case not explain in your movie.
The sentence is “It is highly doubtful _whether_ Kelvin is going to return to work after his illness.”
Does this sentence is corect? Could you tell me more about this sentence construction please?

Best regards,
Antony.

Monday, March 21st 2016

Thank you for great lessons.

Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

From the last question on the quiz, can we say:”Whether he invites me to the party, I will attend.” Does it mean whether or not he invites me i will attend (regardless)?

Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Thank you Adam! Great lesson from great teacher!

Tuesday, June 28th 2016

I’ve gotten a bad grade on quizz.
But I could understand the lesson, I used to have a lot of doubts about this subject.

Thanks ENGVID, and thanks Adam!

Thursday, June 30th 2016

I play your videos in my classes. Your lessons are very practical and useful. Will be great if there be a video about, ” though, although, however and so”
Thank you so very much Adam.

Thursday, June 30th 2016

You and Ronnie are my favorite Engvid teachers of all times.

Thursday, June 30th 2016

YOur lessons are always great! Thank you a lot!

Sunday, July 3rd 2016

Adam is my most favorite teacher among the 12 teachers on this website.

Thursday, July 7th 2016

Hi Adam,
First of all thanks for the great lessons. I’m still confused, though.

First, in your example ” Let me know whether/if you’re coming.” “Know” can be vi or vt if I’m right. If the “know” is vi, the clause should be adverb conditional clause. In such case both whether and if are correct, meaning regardless. Am I right?

Second, what you have explained question No 10 means that “whether” includes the meaning of how much effort being made and how s/o achieves something, whereas “if” indicates only the result being achieved or not. Is that it ?

Looking forward to your response. Thanks a bunch!

Monday, July 11th 2016

good lesson

Tuesday, July 12th 2016

I understand this lesson carefully, but I don’t know why I got 30 out of 100 :(

Tuesday, July 12th 2016

Hi comrade Adam, your channel is very useful, but I suggest to go to the depth of English and teach us how to answer our literature exams. I face difficulty when I study literature. In addition, I hope to talk about more advanced grammar go deep deep deep we want more knowledge man !! I like your accent, thank’s.

Thursday, July 14th 2016

Hi,Mr.Adam thank you for the lesson “if and whether”.
I want to know these two sentences:
Please let the front desk know if you need extra towels.
Please let the front desk know whether you need extra towels.
Do they have the same meaning?

Thursday, July 14th 2016

Adam:
Why the question 10 is [both are correct]?
(10. How quickly you progress depends mostly on ______ you try hard.)Thank you.

Friday, July 15th 2016

well I is confusing and hard to understand it. I got 60% really hard. :(
Thanks any way to all teachers

Monday, July 18th 2016
