Test your understanding of this English lesson

Test your understanding of the English lesson by answering these questions. You will get the answers and your score at the end of the quiz.
Read the following first body paragraph of an essay about why going to school abroad is better than studying locally:

Firstly, attending academic lectures at an international institute of higher education facilitates students' exposure to and ability to acquire cultural elements of the new language, such as nuance and humurous anecdotes. They can kill two birds with one stone in this way. Therefore, they will make acquaintances who are natives, and this will aid them in securing lucrative positions in the prosperous marketplace of their career industries. Also, they may return to their native lands and have the upper hand on their rivals and peers.

What is/are the problem(s) with this paragraph?

Look at this sentence from the paragraph given previously:

Firstly, attending academic lectures at an international institute of higher education facilitates students' exposure to and ability to acquire cultural elements of the new language, such as nuance and humorous anecdotes.

Which of the following sentences would be a better topic sentence for the first body paragraph of an essay about the benefits of studying abroad?

Which of the following sentences is the best choice to make use of the idiom?

One paragraph should have one central point of focus.

Read the following sentences. They are the last sentence of the introduction and the first sentence of the first body paragraph.

"In my opinion, university or college education should be free to every citizen of a country because in the long run, it is an investment in the country's future.

Seeing as university graduates are the people who will one day run companies and even the entire nation, I believe that it is important to educate them and prepare them for that future."


How can the second sentence be improved in terms of essay structure?

High-end words have many syllables and are rare, such as "amalgamated", "exacerbation", or "extraordinary".

Read the following sentence:

These days, a college degree no longer provides security in terms of finding well-paid employment, as it had even just 30 years ago.

Which of the following sentences is the best choice to follow the above sentence?

Read the following body paragraph about children's health:

Children need to be educated about and encouraged to participate in physical activities. This will help them physically, but also socially, as they have to play in team sports. Therefore children's physical as well as mental health will be taken care of. Moreover, they will be able to make new friendships that may last a long time, and these relationships will make these children see the value in being actively involved in things. In the long run, this will also help their career opportunities because they will know how to take care of themselves physically, mentally, and socially. Above all, they will likely find good partners and be able to raise their own children in a healthy way.

What is the problem with this paragraph?

It is better to be simple and clear than complicated and misunderstood.

First I want to thank this very useful site and perfect teachers,and then plz help me with memorizing vocabulary.I mean in English a lot of words have several different meanings.For ex “advance” has several meanings just as a noun,so how can I learn them.Thx a zillion.

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

    Hi Zahra,

    The best way to learn vocab is to read a lot. That way you will see these words in their different uses and remember them better. Also, if you see a word you know but not sure how it’s being used in a sentence, look it up in the dictionary and find its other meanings. Other than that, it’s just time and practice.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Great job Adam

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

Really its very useful lesson..Thank you

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

it was really very helpful to me. because i believe that writing poetry and poems need the same guideline. thank you Sir. Adam

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

Oh, my god! I made lots of errors in this quiz. It was a hard lesson! But It’s great and very important for English learners. Many thanks, Adam. :)

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

Hello Adam,I have visited at your website.It is showing under process,and it is not getting opening when will it be open.

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

    Hi Wajahath. It’s running now :)

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Fortunately we don’t have to pass none of these exams in my country, though our kids start to learn writing essays pretty early; even at gymnasium. Yet, some of us, adults, still have problems with “good waffling”.

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

    Nothing teaches better than constructive self-criticism – what a beautiful double negation :) (possibly the exaggerated make-up blunted my sight) .

    Wednesday, May 25th 2016

This is my worst quiz grade, but I ‘ve realized that my English has to improve if I want to speak it fluently.

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

    me too…

    Tuesday, May 24th 2016

This is really helpful! Thank you Adam. Your lessons are always so great.Althrough I don’t have to take these exams, I also learned a lot!

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

It’s amazing,I just go to 5 correct out of nine,I should Think of it carefully.question three,I prefer the last one,I like this way,say something 1234,finally get conclusion.

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

Hello Adam ,
Not easy but I got just one mistake and I congratulate myself . If you want to do it , don’t hesitate . Ahah !!
It seems that in the first quiz question paragraph the sentence “exposure to and ability to acquire” has a mistake . It should be “exposure to an ability to acquire”
Am I right ?
Thank you to wake our brains up .

Wednesday, May 25th 2016

    Hi Tsamp,

    There is no need for the ‘an’ before ability because exposure and ability both serve as objects to the possessive “students'”.

    That being said, the ‘to’ after exposure could have been omitted. :)

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

OMG!! 3 Correct out of 9 :(

Wednesday, May 25th 2016

Thanks for great tips about writing. The lesson was easy to understand but the quiz wasn’t. I got the worst score ever ;(. I need to take it one more after wahtcing the lesson again.

Question #10. Let’s pick a random native English speaker. What is the chance they can pass the IELTS or TOEFL, assuming it is Adam who marks it?
;)

Wednesday, May 25th 2016

    Lol. You’d be surprised how many native speakers wouldn’t do well on these tests ;)

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Wednesday, May 25th 2016

… fit other languages too …

Wednesday, May 25th 2016

Useful advices! .. Great lesson! .. Thanks!

Thursday, May 26th 2016

hi, I have a question.. you told several times ‘he’ talking about a child. I read that it’s not correct to call a child just ‘she’ or ‘he’ and it is recommended to use ‘they’, ‘he or she’, ‘child’s’ etc.. It is important to know for students who are going to do a TOEFL test, because there might be questions about children. what do you think, is it correct to use also ‘he’ in this case? thanks

Thursday, May 26th 2016

    Hi Sofia,

    Good question. It’s ok to choose one pronoun (he or she) as long as you stay consistent. Many writers choose to go with the plural to avoid the gender issues in writing, but that’s a personal choice. On the TOEFL you won’t be penalized for choosing one gender.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

      Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Hello Adam!
I need your help. How can I improve my speaking english without practicing with native speakers

Friday, May 27th 2016

    Hi Finnar,

    You can find online talks (like ted.com) that have transcripts. Listen and follow along with the transcripts, then record yourself as you repeat the talk. Compare your intonation to the native speaker and pay attention to when they stress or destress things, when they speed up or slow down, accent, etc.

    This is a good way to practice.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Adam! I need more time to get better understanding.

Friday, May 27th 2016

    Take all the time you need Pavanut :)

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

thank you teacher

Saturday, May 28th 2016

The more I know about IELTS/TOEFL exams, the more they are extremely subjective to me.
Anyway, thank you Adam for good lesson.

Saturday, May 28th 2016

    Quite right Dragon :) To a limit. The writing and speaking is more open to being subjective, but there are two graders, so they do have to follow some standards.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

any one want to chat with me to practice english this is my number 00963504515767 on the whatsapp

Saturday, May 28th 2016

    Monday, July 4th 2016

I love this teacher. He’s awesome. :-)

Saturday, May 28th 2016

Hello Adam, I want ask you for passive sentence with “go to”

I go to college
Some people say it can be translated in passive As
“The action of going to college is done by me.”
Is it right sentence or, not?
I’m waiting for your reply.

Monday, May 30th 2016

    Hi Adeel,

    Technically, the sentence is correct, but you will almost never see this sentence used. Anyway, that’s a passive of do, not go. Go is not used in a passive form.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Hello Adam. I have a doubt about the question number 3. The setence given as correct was ” International students are thus able to kill two birds with one stone; they gain mastery over a new language, while at the same time building a network of like-minded people with whom they can collaborate in the future”. The question is: isn’t redundant to say “while at the same time”? Aren’t those expressions synonymous?

Monday, May 30th 2016

    Good point Danddan. You could remove the “at the same time” but leaving it in emphasises that they achieve both results by the one action , not as separate actions (they build a network by taking to people, which allows them to practice speaking and improve their language skills).

    If I left only the ‘while’ then they are doing the two things separately, which doesn’t support the use of the idiom.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

      Thank you very much for your great explantion, teacher!

      Thursday, June 16th 2016

Adam, please help me again with present perfect.
There’s a letter:

Dear Lisa,
a lot of things have happend since you went to London.
We have bought a new car.
My brother………a new job.
My parents……..on holiday last week.
My sister……….how to ride a bike.
Our Pussy cat……..part in a cat show.
It ……….two days ago.
She………..a prize.
I …….already………two leters to you.
But I…………from you yet. Write to me
soon.
Best wishes,
Olga.

You can use verbs:
knew
written
took
done
flown
swam
won
gone
came
was
went
swum
wrote
ate
seen
got
been
made
taken
bought
learnt
ran
eaten
heard
spoken
ridden
found
spoke
rode
drawn

Adam if you please, explain me why did you use past simple or present perfect. Thank you.

Monday, May 30th 2016

    Of course – it was two days ago, I have already written two letters to you.
    I would say ” My brother has got a new job” but I heard resantly that HAVE GOT is not present perfect.

    Tuesday, May 31st 2016

    Dear Lisa,
    a lot of things have happened since you went to London.
    We bought a new car.
    My brother found a new job.
    My parents went on holiday “last week”.
    My sister learned/has learned how to ride a bike.(this can be both because she might still be learning as it takes time)
    Our Pussy cat took part in a cat show.
    It was two days ago.
    She won a prize.
    I have already written two letters to you.
    But I haven’t heard from you yet. Write to me
    soon.
    Best wishes,
    Olga.

    Technically, all the “events” should be simple past because they are randomly listed as happening in that time period (since you left until today). The letters show two actions in that period, so they are perfect tenses since they happened over two unknown times, and still waiting to hear from you, so the action continues.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

      Adam, thank you. I begin to understand this topic better. I will write you again.(about P.P and P.S)

      Thursday, June 9th 2016

7/9 :)

Monday, May 30th 2016

It was really hepfull Adan, These are what I need to improve my writting. I have to practice inded to be good on it,I always try to put “big words” as you told before; It does not work very well. You are a great teacher, keep on this way. God bless You.

Monday, May 30th 2016

Hello, I understood the lesson despite I´m beginner, but my test was very bad because I think it was very long.

Tuesday, May 31st 2016

very good

Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Adam are those idioms commonly used(often)?
1 don’t put words in my mouth
2 a deal’s a deal

Wednesday, June 1st 2016

    or should I just say “don’t lie” in first case?
    Thank you.

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

    Yes, they are quite common. The first is often used about the media whose reporters conduct interviews and then claim the interviewee said something that they didn’t. (the reporters “interpreted” it that way.)– it’s not necessarily a lie, but not the whole truth either ;)
    The second means you can’t changed your mind about an agreement that’s been made.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

      But, Adam if I in a speach will say you “don’t put words in my mouth” will it be not weird? If I will be doing it often?

      Thursday, June 9th 2016

        It’s not something that’s said often. You can say it when you think someone is trying to twist your words to make it seem like you are saying something you’re not saying. You probably won’t speak to that person very often or for very long, so it’s not that common ;)

        Saturday, June 25th 2016

Uhh… 5/9 i have to work on this. thank you for this lesson.

Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Thank you m.r Adam

Wednesday, June 1st 2016

I hope you will upload more video about IELTS because you taught very easy to understand. Thank you for your reading my comment.

Wednesday, June 1st 2016

thanks a lot this lesson is very useful

Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Hi Adam, I did the quize and I got 4 correct out of 9. I’m confused with the quize.
Thank you very much.

Thursday, June 2nd 2016

    It’s not an easy quiz Bellatimor. Try again :)

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

thank you very much, Adam!

Saturday, June 4th 2016

Adam, could you make a lesson, please, about using “there is and there are” because it is so confusing sometimes.
Some grammar textbooks say you must use “there is”
when you make a list. For istance:
– there is a desk, a chair, a blackboard in the classroom. There is a wolf and seven little goats in the house. I use “there are” in those cases.
Thank you.

Saturday, June 4th 2016

    I’ll get on it Katrin ;)

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

      Thank you!

      Thursday, June 9th 2016

Adam, is the next correct:

– Forget him!
– How can I? Wherever I go, everywhere is his name.

Saturday, June 4th 2016

    I would write:

    – How can I? Wherever I go, I see his name.
    or
    – How can I? Wherever I go, his name is there.

    Though technically, you don’t see a name. Wherever I go, I hear his name.

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

      or
      wherever I go, his name comes up.

      Wednesday, June 8th 2016

        Thank you Adam, I just wanted to know, could I put the subject after BE-verb.

        Thursday, June 9th 2016

          I’d need to see an example to be sure what you’re asking, but in an inverted structure, yes, you can:

          Not only IS HE clever, but HE IS rich too.

          Saturday, June 25th 2016

This lesson is very interesting. Thank you Adam!

Saturday, June 4th 2016

Very hard quiz
You are a great teacher
Thank you Adam!!!

Sunday, June 5th 2016

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

    Hi Mehdi,

    That’s a good question, but I’m afraid too long to answer here. I will try to make a video about it ;)

    Wednesday, June 8th 2016

      Thanks Adam

      Friday, June 10th 2016

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Hi, Adam! That is a nice lesson again! I acknowledge that I make some mistakes you have mentioned, like using complex expressions, even in my mother tongue. I will try to apply your advice the next time I write a composition. Thanks and see you in another lesson!

Wednesday, June 8th 2016

Hi Adam
I am going to appear for IELTS exam on 25th June. I was wondering if you can check my essay for grammatical and structural mistakes and provide your professional feedback.
Thank you!

Thursday, June 9th 2016

    Hi Adeel,

Saturday, June 18th 2016

Hey adam, when I hear someone speak in english, or watching english movie without subtitle I can understand. But when I want to write some sentence I got confused.

Monday, June 20th 2016

    Writing is a very different skill Saptanta. It’s active, whereas listening and reading are passive. It’s just a matter of practice.

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Hi, Adam,must I use a VPN to watch your vedio in China? because the screen just give me a broken picture.

    Hi Zuura,

    I’m afraid I can’t assess essays here. I do offer this service though at writetotop.com if you are interested.

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

Childhood is a period of life between the ages of six to sixteen. In this period, people are approaching to adulthood doing different kinds of things, for instance going to schools, joining clubs, playing with friends, learning skills, exploring the world and etc. More or less these activities might make person’s life happier, better and more memorable. In my following paragraphs i will try to give examples and reasons why I agree that childhood is considered to be the best and happiest time of a person’s life.
First reason of why childhood is the happiest moment of life is when you are a child, you do not worry about earning money, providing family or dealing with some problems which are faced later period of life in almost everyone’s life. It is a period of time when there is no anxiety of what to do and how to act in order not to be judged by society. This is already a big plus of always wanting to stay a child.
Second reason is you always feel you are healthy and young, because the older you get, the sicker you feel. When you are ill, you need to go to hospitals a lot, you cannot jump, play and run as fast as you want. Furthermore, when you are a child, your life is full of colorful moments, joy and happiness as well as entertainment, which lead you to think that this world is like a paradise, Children usually think that there is nothing wrong, that everything is perfect, life is wonderful.
Third reason is when you are a child, you have big dreams, aspirations and goals, which you believe you will get without struggles and obstacles, because in your world everything is easy and everyone loves and supports each other. For me, this is the most important thing to think that childhood is the happiest momet of life.
To sum up, I would like to emphasize that childhood is the best time and say that when you are a child you always want to grow up faster and become adult, so you can make your own decisions and you think that adult life is more fascinating and glamorous. On the other hand, when you are already an adult you want to turn back time and go to your past to relive it, because that was the period when you enjoyed your life more.

Wednesday, June 22nd 2016

Thanks Adam/ Its excellent

Thank’s Adam I get 9 points for this quiz … It’s good material for writing practice. You are not just cute native english tutor but you also smart to give a direct method for us as non-native english speaking. It is very useful and I will be happy to watch your videos for another material.

Hey, Adam I wanna know if you can upload a video explaining the prepositions of place, please. I need it

Monday, July 18th 2016

Can I send you my writing?

Thursday, July 21st 2016

First of all, thank you so much for very useful tips. I personally feel that how people express their opinion and then provide supported reasons, it is sometimes complex and confusing depending on each culture in particular. For example, as a Thai, I am often sure that I have already given all supported reasons but it seems like it is not enough for a native reader eventually. It appears to me that the way Asian thought and how we support our ideas are a bit different from English native speaker; we normally do not have to provide lots of concrete reasons. However, practice makes perfect undoubtedly, I will try to keep practicing in order to get used to the way native speakers think and create a structure of writing.
