Very useful! I’m also trying to learn 5 words per day at least (taking note of them in a little notebook); and every weekend I make a general review… it’s working very well and I’m increasing my vocabulary this way!

Thanks very much for the tips Adam. I always enjoy your videos! ;)

Monday, June 24th 2013

Very Good!

Monday, June 24th 2013

Thank you so much Adam…
I’m like you, I’m not a big fan of the “root” thing.
So I’m comfortable with the “Function” and “Theme” groups.

Thank you so much for your efforts.

One thing I do every day is write down the full text from the white board in every lesson I watch from this page, with their respective comments from the teacher. Then, I make a fair copy, in order to reread everything, and this way the vocabulary comes to me easier. I have written about 60 lessons in just a month, and my teacher has noticed a significant improvement. So, I share the Adam’s method: Read and write a lot, as much as you can, that works ;).

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

Adam, I know exactly what you mean. :) I prefer to memorize sentences instead of single words because I need context. I can’t learn word by word because it is just a word or just a word on piece of paper — of course, I can stick that card to a thing and this is better than just trying to memorize words from it. But when you have a sentence, you have also a strong meaning, and you can recall the desirable word by thinking about the other words in the sentence.

The writing exercise is also awesome :) Take a look at this: http://imageshack.us/a/img849/1374/dsc00036eu.jpg That was a pretty hard work, almost 3 months of my free time. I once played a game, and I thought that I could translate it. I think no one has ever been playing one game for almost 3 months. :)

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

    Whoaaaa! That must have taken you ages. What’s your next project?

    Wednesday, June 26th 2013

      I don’t do this anymore, this takes lots of time but is awesome if you want to start learning a foreign language. I did this a year ago, more or less, and in that time I didn’t even know what I was writing. :) I didn’t know any grammar rules, and I understood only single words — the rest I had to translate. Besides, this is a better way than just translating words because you have to think about every single letter in any word you write. Ultimately you’re starting to see the structure of sentences, some patterns, and if you know grammar, you can easily figure out why a sentence is written in this or that way. And of course, you play a game, so you can see and hear many things, and if someone say to you “go there and kill that dragon”, and you don’t know what “dragon” is, you will find out soon. :)

      Now I’m trying to read a lot and write with people, especially in fields that I’m good at. And maybe I’m not perfect (yet), but people understand what I’m writing, and this is really awesome. :)

      Thursday, June 27th 2013

        Wow. That’s pretty serious. But then, your English is pretty serious too. ;)

        You’ve got the right idea– the most important thing to do is learn English while you’re doing something you enjoy.

        Good stuff Morfik.

        thanks :)

        Saturday, July 6th 2013

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

Thanx a lot Mr. Adam for a good tip
I have a question I’m getting confused with it
What does I wouldn’t wanna be ya ?
I heard this many times from british people

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

    Hi Ahmed,

    I wouldn’t want to be you (wouldn’t wanna be ya) basically means they don;t want to be in your situation because it’s difficult or bad. It’s just an expression to show they understand your difficulty.

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

      Mr.Adam
      I ask you if there is an website about taking English with lyrics??
      I have recently learned English ,and I want to develop my abilities to listen and speak English
      Thanks Mr.Adam in advance.

      Wednesday, August 20th 2014

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

Very helpful lesson! Thanks Adam! A question: where could I find the list of words required by IELTS and/or TOEFL?

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

    Hi Sgmmm,

    There are some books you can buy (or download online if you know where) that will give you good lists. There isn’t an official word list though.

    If you know torrents, just look for IELTS or TOEFL in the search box.

    Hope that helps

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

Hi Adam. thank you very much. Your lesson is very usefull for me, because just begin my adventure with English.

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

this lesson is really useful.

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

thank u it is amazing method =) thank u so much Mrs Adam

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

Hi everybody. Thanks Adam for these good advices. I think speaking English we must LISTEN a lot. Have a good job)

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

It’s very usefull idea to use dictionary like m-w.com. But when I use this, I see too much unknown words in explanation of the checking word. If I try checking these words, I see other unknown words. And so on… It can be continued infinitely. Finally I have too much words for remembering for one time.
Because of it I use everyday dictionary. But I hope It’s not forever. =)

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

    Hi Droneva,

    That’s why I recommend it.– why learn only one new word? learn a few each time ;)

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

Adam, I just got 6/10 in that quizz, but I undertood mi mistakes and further more I learned many words, therefore, that lesson was very useful.

All the best to you, Adam. Thanks!

Thank you Adam for this lesson , it’s very helpful to maintain our vocabulary and improve it ,by the way I’ve got 70 percent in your test,I hope I do better next time.

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

I suggest one app to improve your vocabulary by flash-cards. It’s a good and funny way. It’s avalaible for PC or smartphone.

ANKI WORD

Thanks Adam for the tips.

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

    Cool. Thanks Xevi :)

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

I tried to use textbooks to improve my English vocabulary, but every time I attempted it I got bored soon. Then I bought an American crime drama TV series, with no translation in my language, and I have started to translate every new word.And, yes, it was much more fun.
As you said, I have written the new words (and the entire sentence, to recall the context).I’ve made a lot of lists. I’ve ordered the nouns and verbs by theme, I’ve made lists with phrasal verbs – different verbs with the same particle, or the same verb with different particles. I’ve made lists with idioms…It’s a lot of work, but I enjoy it.
I still use textbooks for grammar.And your site, of course, and thank you very much for it!

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

    good stuff :)

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

      Thanks for your best tips,Adam.Would you want make your next video about vocabulary verity in IELTS exam,specially in writing tasks? It seems everyone needs this tutorial.

    Hi Mansour,

    I’ll get on that.

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

Thank you so much.

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

Thanks Adam,
I can say it’s worth it!

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

Very good explanation, Adam :)

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

Could you give us
some ideas how to learn phrasal verbs?

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

    Hi Renata,

    I’m afraid there’s no trick to them. they are basically vocab you need to study. But with thee as well, better to study them as chunks. For example learn
    turn on
    off
    over
    up
    down
    in
    out
    around

    and turnover
    turnout
    turnaround

    etc.

    It might be a little easier to retain the info that way

    :)

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

Excellent, I understood perfectly, thank you

thank you adam. i like your lessons…

Wednesday, June 26th 2013

What a pleasure to listen to your lessons.
I would like to make a suggestion:
Could you, or any one else, make a lesson on how to choose the right etiquette at the end of a message or a letter?
For examples I never know if I can use “Best wishes” or “Fondest regards” or “Cheers” and so on.
Bye for now.

Wednesday, June 26th 2013

    Hi JP

    I’ll see what I can do about that. For now, “Best regards,” is probably good for all situations.

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

Good job Adam. It’s a great idea to use cards but it would be excellent if you can make app for mobile phones because it’s easier. even for your site and lessons.
Thanks

Wednesday, June 26th 2013

    Hi Masoud,

    Xevi mentioned ANKI WORD. I haven’t tied it yet, but you can look at that. I’ll look around and see if there are others as well.

    Let me know

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

Thanks Adam.
very useful lesson.

Wednesday, June 26th 2013

Dear Teacher Adam,
Please help me make a lesson about 02 words ACT and ACTION. Cause each word itself has 02 form (Verb & Noun). Im not really sure how to use them correctly

Thank You Very Much!

Wednesday, June 26th 2013

    Hi Chocon,

    Not only two forms for each, but several meanings for each as well.

    Ideally, I would need to know the context you’d like to use them in. Otherwise there are too many meaning to get into here. Check the dictionary and if you have any particular troubles, let me know. I’ll be happy to help.

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

I love Shawshank Redemption too. Also, I have a friend who made an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows XP. Unbelievable.

Wednesday, June 26th 2013

ok.. Adam .. i use oxforddictionaries.com .. but i really fed up with looking for the meanings of the words.. it takes a lot of time, and at the end you are tired.. it takes really a lot of time, sometimes hours to understand the meaning any little story.. it is boring for mee.. i use google.translate but it doesnt give the excat translate to Azerbaijanian language.. when i use oxford dictionary , there are a lot of words on the explanation which i dont know the meanings of these words again.. this is the boring part of learning english for me..i really need to expand my vocabulary..which book can u advice me ? for grammer i use murphy.. but for vocabulary with exercises ? i think it should be much better.. i am intermadiate level.. i am studying this language for 10 years from my school time..of course not every day :) so far i cant increase this language to advanced level.. but when i started to learn Russian 6 months was enough for me to understand and speak in Russian.. but i think every one has to know the excat translate of any word for beginnig, after this you can explain the meanings of words..you explain it hundred times, whitout knowing the excat transalte students will forget it in a brief time, but if they know the translate of any word they will be able to explain it in english.. so advice me some book to improve my vocabulary in an easy way, please :((

Thursday, June 27th 2013

    I have these problems when learning vocabulary too. If you get concerned to improve vocabulary fast it becomes frustranting really. I watched a lesson by Ronnie which say you must learn about 10 new words a day then doing it every day you will get around 70 new words a week and it’s not bad. When you use google translate, try put just one word to see the meaning so you can find synonyms and gramatical classes of the word. I knew a book called Dictionary Cambridge English Grammar that seems useful. There is the link to download from 4shared http://www.4shared.com/office/xBK2pj6n/Dictionary_Cambridge_English_G.htm Good luck!

    Thursday, June 27th 2013

    Hi Fakhranda,

    I know what you mean. Unfortunately, that is the biggest problem with learning vocab– it’s boring and repetitive.But that’s what you have to do- you have to practice and work everyday.

    As for reading, as I said in the video, read what you like to read. Whatever you read in your language, find it in English and read that.

    Murphy also has a vocab book if you can find it. Otherwise search torrents or other share sites for vocab books. If you find any, you can ask me about them and can look to see if they are good.

    keep trying. It’ll come. :)

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

Is there a lesson in EngVid about conjunctions? I always get in trouble when I have to use “that” or “which” for example. Thanks

Thursday, June 27th 2013

    Hi Sgmmm,

    There are a few. Use the search box for it.

    For now–in adjective clauses:

    ‘that’ is used as an identifying conjunction, without commas.

    ‘which’ is used to provide extra information, with commas.

    Hope that helps.

    I’ll try to make a lesson about these two.

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

it is clear but not 100%

so I hope to make english subtitles for your
explanation on video .

thank u very much

What does “So much for something” mean?
Example: So much for talking

The car’s broken down again. So much for our trip to the seaside.
Thanks

Saturday, June 29th 2013

    It is an expression of disappointing, when something is over in an unexpected, negative way.In yours examples it means – 1.The talk is over,it is no use to say more. – 2.The trip failed.

    Saturday, June 29th 2013

      nice answer

      Tuesday, April 7th 2015

    Hi Henrique,

    Arinamg gave a good answer. I’ll just add that it’s an expression of resignation, when you have to admit (in disappointment) that there is no more use in continuing something. It’s useless/hopeless.

    Another usage is when you had an expectation and it is suddenly no longer relevant.

    Me and my wife were supposed to talk about buying a house. She came home and told she gave the agent a down-payment. So much for talking.

    Does that help?

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

Hi Adam. Since several months I’m reading in English almost all the time at the point I am no more translating into French (most of the time) and I follow the story in my mind directly. However (transition, remember?) sometimes it happens that the sentences construction seem rather abstruse to me and, if I understand all the words in themselves, I can’t understand the whole meaning. Also, again, I love your pronunciation. By the way, do you slow your speaking down for the students or is it natural? Thanks.

Saturday, June 29th 2013

    hi adam.thank you so much for this wondurful lesson and for all other teachers of engvid.please adam make a lesson about past perft continious and present perfect continious and future perfect continious and when we use them?.thanks.

    Sunday, June 30th 2013

    Hi Patple,

    When you come across such a sentence, cut it into its essential pieces — independent clause, subordinate clause(s), phrases, etc, then analyze each separately. That might help.

    To tell the truth, I do slow down a bit. For the higher end lessons like TOEFL or IELTS I’ll speak more naturally because it helps those students prepare.

    Thanks :)

    Saturday, July 6th 2013

Thanks Adam for the nice lesson.

Sunday, June 30th 2013

There’s a great way to learn vocabulary, in a sort-of-word-card way. I’ve found a free app called AnyMemo (I think there’s an Android and a Mac version). You can create your list of vocabulary through the app or you can prepare a css or excell sheet and import it; or even import from the website… Then, while using the app, you can check each card with a number, depending on if you know it (3 points), it’s only familar for you 1 or 2 points) or if it’s unknown (0 points). In this way, the app will show you the unknown cards more often than all those that you already known. There are more features rather interesting, as you can also use a text-to-voice machine, so you can not only read but also listen to the words. Or you can change the order and read first the answer instead of its question, change the size and colour of the font, the colour in the background…The app is pretty easy to use. It’s quite useful for me, and I thought anyone of you could be intereste d on it. Oh, I forgot it! Because it can be installed in your mobile, you can practice it wherever you are, as Adam said in his video.

Hi Adam, great video,thank you!
I personally like to learn words through the synonyms. However I found that I stucked with bunch of them in my head and don’t know how to use most of them. For example, sulky and sullen. Do you know any web site or dictionary that explains how to use the word correctly? I would really appreciate any advice. Viktoria

Wednesday, March 26th 2014

Thanks! Adam!
I’m new here , and I will come to learn English everyday!I like teachers here!The comments is useful too.
I tried with card before, it is a pity i didn’t insist finnaly, i wanna have a try again.
And one my friend share me a good way to remember the vocabulary:
*Do dictation with the new words that you learnt, repeat it!
*Do some other DictationOnline is a very good way to practice vocabulary ,improved many other English skills as well!Currently,I’m practice this dictation:
http://www.rong-chang.com/eslread/eslread/dict/contents.htm

Question:
Could you kindly write down the name of two novels which you introduced in this vedio?
Thanks!

Hope it is clear.Oh man, I know the vocabulary, but hard to organize it to be a sentence~

Sunday, April 13th 2014

Especially when you highlighted that it’s not enough if you write down words, but you should make sentences with them, you were right. In fact, the more sentences you try to make, the more efficiently can you learn English. What I mean is that there are some cases that a person that studies only one hour per day may be better that another person who works around the clock. This is for one reason: because the former works more efficiently, whether the latter not.

Many people think that you can learn a new language very fast. Gaining fluency in a language is a long-range process. And it can take even years. Of course, by following this steps everyone can succeed, but is not so easy as it may seem, if we see it from a more realistic point of view.

Sunday, April 20th 2014

thank you adam for those advice

Friday, January 2nd 2015

Hi Mr Adam thanks for the lesson. It is a very good video i have ever seen. But, in my opinion, everyone has their own way to remember a new vocabulary. As you said in the video that we could try CARD (or some people know it as ANKI CARD) CARD and did repetition of it. For me it is rather boring. I prefer to acquire new words by reading novels i like. Cheers!

Sunday, January 4th 2015

I would like to pass the TOEFL exam in the future, so I have a question connected with it. The most popular exams in Poland are the Cambridge exams, so there are a lot of different books preparing for FCA, Advanced (CAE) or Proficiency Exam(CPE). If I learn vocabulary from this kind of books (e.g. http://www.macmillan.cz/img/sp-DestinationC1C2.pdf ), it will be enough to prepare for TOEFL?

Sunday, January 18th 2015

Awesome lesson Mr. Adam, In my opinion your vídeos are best because your pronunciation is easy to understand. I pratice english in the most part playing RPG in vídeo games. It’s good because you need to read a lot what the people are saying to understand what you have to do, online and offline. Online games like world of warcraft, dota, starcraft are awesome cause you can Interact with people of another countries you just need to play in other server. Thanks for the tips.

Thursday, January 22nd 2015

7 correct out of 10.
Thanks, Adam!

Sunday, January 25th 2015

Hello teacher !! You said that object means refuse !! but what i know that refuse means to reject ! Am i right or both of the words have the same meaning ?

Wednesday, January 28th 2015

Hello teacher! Thanks so much for your useful videos. I find them really exciting . Teacher, can you help me to distinguish these words: hurtful, painful and aching.
Thank you in advance!

Wednesday, February 4th 2015

    Hurtful is used to describe emotions—if something hurts your feelings. “I apologize for my hurtful comments.” Painful describes, well, anything that causes pain, physical or emotional. Aching describes a dull, prolonged kind of pain. Lift heavy things all day and you may find your back is aching. If you’re really sad about something for a long time, you could say you have an “aching heart”.

    Wednesday, February 4th 2015

I got 8 of 10.Thanks for your lessons.

Friday, February 6th 2015

Thank you. Teacher I have a question. I don’t know how to play a role perfectly in English.

Monday, April 13th 2015

Dear Adam
It’s not a comment!
thanks to the videos i’ve watched here on EngVid i’m feeling more relaxed. But in my case, there’s a problem i’m facing for next 14 days. I’m taking my first IELTS exam and unfortunately it’s the last time that the test scores can work for me to get my visa for Australia.

I wanna ask a question. So let me be brief and to-the-point:
I have a limited lexical power. My rough estimate is 1500 activated words that can be used in Speaking module. Is it possible to score 6 out of 9 using only 1500 basic activated words + 10 useful words for most frequent cue cards? (provided fairly nice grammar and very good accent)

it’s big kind to give me guidance
thanks in advance

yours

Friday, April 17th 2015

    i forgot to mention that my average score for listening and reading, based on 9 tests, are 7.0 and 7.5 (General Training)

    thanks again…

    Saturday, April 18th 2015

Hello teacher Adams!!! i have a question for u, recently i watch this video and started to make the cards using the words groups, but one in special, wich is JAG, i havent found a sentence related to the meaning ive been studied, like tore, rip, scrape… so can u help me with this???

Alex, I’ve never seen a video on EngVid with a lot of comments like this. i think it’s because some people want to improve their English skills and, consequently, their vocabulary. Then, this video class can help us how we can do that.
Congrats and thanks a lot.

Saturday, May 21st 2016

Thank you for you wonderful lessons. Adam! Every time i learn so much. Good idea to use cards with words in one side and sentences on the other, but i wonder if there exist such ready-to-use cards somewhere in pdf format? it would be very good to download, print and study…rather than creating them yourself…

Sunday, June 19th 2016

Adam! I truly believe that using an English to English dictionary help a lot! I was looking some days ago details about the word “feature” and I found some others very interested. Add to that tip, because I’m preparing myself to take the TOEFL,I write everyday new words I could use for the writing and speaking section, hopefully it will help me to get a better score.

Monday, June 20th 2016
