Sunday, March 3rd 2013

Thanks, Adam! O made just two mistakes but a need to watch again.

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

you are a good teacher.

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

I wonder answering number 9.!! Is there any mistake?

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

    Hi Can,

    No, the answer ‘knockout’ is correct. It’s a noun.

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Thank you. I made three mistakes. It’s great for me. But I can’t catch 6 item. Explaine please!!!

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

    Hi Алексей Окунев

    When we say someone is a knockout, we say he/she is very good looking. It’s an adjective. So, the girl is so good looking that I want to date her.

    Does that help?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

      But in the description of this lesson you used the “knockout” as an adjective to change the word lesson. Which I understand as “super awesome lesson”.
      And I left the comment meaning that you are a knockout (super awesome) teacher.

      Sunday, December 21st 2014

My favorite teacher. Thanks!

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

Hey Adam,
thanks for the lesson, good idea indeed!
I got it better when you use real examples cause I’m a visual person!
Cheers!

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

Hello Adam,
thanks for the lesson, I really appreciated that.
But in the Quiz number 9 the answer knock out is correct but when it shows the correct answers it shows the wrong answer knockout .

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

    Hi Shad,
    \
    This one was a bit tricky. Knockout is correct. Here we are asking about the situation (it), so are looking for a noun. IT is called A knockout.

    Does that help?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Monday, March 4th 2013

Adam, what does mean this sentence: ” Knocking off your hat or mooning the judges will not impress anybody.”?

Monday, March 4th 2013

    Hi Adyce,

    That’s a pretty funny sentence. Not exactly sure what the writer meant, I’d need to have more context. But if I had to guess, I’d say it means clowning around won’t help you. knocking off your hat, might mean hitting it off your head. Mooning is slang for pulling down your pants and showing your bum. Sounds like it might be at some contest.

    Funny anyway. :)

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Pls anyone help me how i can make this sentence passive —I think, people will forget it very soon—

Monday, March 4th 2013

    i think it will be forgot by people very soon.

    Monday, March 4th 2013

      Thank you

      Thursday, March 7th 2013

    Hi Lilit,

    Hope it’s not too late, but:

    I think it will be forgotten very soon. (don’t need to mention the people unless they are specific people.)

    Hope that helps

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

ur face knock me out

Monday, March 4th 2013

    lol. The only problem is that your sentence can be good or bad. :)

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Mr. Adam pls help me how i can make these two sentences passive
1.I think, people will forget it very soon
2. They said, that had finished their work in time

Monday, March 4th 2013

    1. I think, it will be forgotten very soon.
    2. They said, that their work had been finished in time.

    imho:)

    Monday, March 4th 2013

    1- I think, it will be forgotten by people very soon.
    2-They said, that work had been finished in time by them.

    Monday, March 4th 2013

      2. They said, that work was finished in time.

      Monday, March 4th 2013

      Thank you

      Thursday, March 7th 2013

    Actually, Sergey got it right except that you don’t need the commas.

    1. I think it will be forgotten very soon.

    2. They said (that) their work had been finished in time.

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

mr Adam i cant understand the exact meaning of knockoff and also knock off can you gave me more examples i,ll very thank full to you

Monday, March 4th 2013

    Hi Anglina,

    I have a Picasso painting in my house. I don’t have millions of dollars, so it must be a knockoff (fake). Some painter knocked off Picasso’s ideas and made paintings to sell cheap.

    Although, knock off can also mean finish, like I knocked off work early today.

    Does that help?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Hi,
I absolutely love the meaning for “Knock up”

Monday, March 4th 2013

Monday, March 4th 2013

Great,GOD b you

Monday, March 4th 2013

got only 7 corrct answer. still confuse : )

Monday, March 4th 2013

how many phrase verb, I should learn for understand the fist sentences in English.
There a mechanism for easily memorize ??
Thanks Adams is interesting you class

Monday, March 4th 2013

    I don’t learn them in the way you try. For example, I heard once an expression “spill the beans”, and I asked a native English speaker for explanation. He tried his best, but I couldn’t understand what that means. And then, suddenly I got it. How? I was watching a movie — there was a scene I understood well, and someone said the phrase. I knew exactly what he was talking about. I think there is no better way to learn stuff like this — you have to listen to native speakers and pay attention to what they do and how they act.

    Friday, March 8th 2013

    Hi Mario,

    There are books dedicated to phrasal verbs and idioms that you can study, but I agree with Morfik– learn by seeing it used in context. When you watch a movie or read something with an expression you don’t know, write it down then try to guess it’s meaning in the context of the conversation. If you can’t guess it then, google it.

    good luck :)

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Thank you so much Mr Adam . I really like lessons on phrasal verbs .

Monday, March 4th 2013

Hello,

Thank you for the lesson and for quiz but it seems to me that I didnt get it very well. I made 2 mistakes. Could you, please explain why at the below question the correct form is Knock off? As you say in the video Knoff off = to steal or to knoff off the table. 7. Bill Gates may never be knocked ______ the list of the top ten richest people in the world.
• in
• over
• down
• off
Thank you again :)

Monday, March 4th 2013

    I have the same question!! I don’t understand why know off is the answer… POlease Adam explain us!!

    Thursday, March 7th 2013

    Hi Luiza,

    If I knock the glass off the table, I basically remove it from the table, make it fall, right? If Bill gates gets knocked off the list, he is removed, he falls from the top ten to a lower number.

    Does that explain it?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Hi Mr.Adam,
This was a fantastic lesson and the way you explained, absolutely very nice.
Please arrange a lesson on “Elder vs Older” which is very confusing for me.
I shall be very thankful.
Thank You
best Regard,
Riaz Noor Afridi

Monday, March 4th 2013

    Hi Riaz,

    It might take some time to get that lesson up, but for now, remember that older can only be used as an adjective and a comparative (old + er). Elder can be used as a noun or an adjective. You should respect your elders (that is, people older than you). Elders here is a plural noun. to compare age, older is more common that elder.

    Does that help?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Dear Adam,

What a helpfull and usefell lesson. Thank you a lot for it. KEEP UP with you job.

GOOD LUCK.

Monday, March 4th 2013

Hi Mr.Adam you are an excellent teacher .
i would like to know, i heard people say comment denominator, when they have conversation.
Thank you
Modu

Monday, March 4th 2013

    Hi Modu,

    I think what you heard is common denominator, which is the the basic thing that is common to everyone/thing in the context.

    Does that help?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Yesterday I see this lesson, but I don’t understand the phrasal verb knock up.

Tuesday, March 5th 2013

    Hi Natobyte,

    It’s slang. It means to get a girl pregnant.

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

    Hi Adam,

    I read your comment and saw the lesson again. Now I got it the meaning of “knocked up”.

    Thank you very much!

    Tuesday, March 19th 2013

I didn’t understand why the correct answer is “Bill Gates may never be knocked _off_ the list …”

Tuesday, March 5th 2013

    Hi Claudio,

    If I knock the glass off the table, I basically remove it from the table, make it fall, right? If Bill Gates gets knocked off the list, he is removed, he falls from the top ten to a lower number.

    Does that explain it?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Thank you very much Dear Adam

Wednesday, March 6th 2013

Hi Adam
question 9 is confusing
the correct answer is nockout why its not knock out as you said about the sport .
thanks

Wednesday, March 6th 2013

    Hi Sahar,

    This one was a bit tricky. Knockout is correct. Here we are asking about the situation (it), so are looking for a noun. IT is called A knockout.

    Does that help?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

very very good lesson aadam

Wednesday, March 6th 2013

Hi teacher! I did not understand question nine of the quiz. It says: 9. When one boxer punches another and the second one falls down and can’t fight anymore, we call it a ________. According to the quiz, the right answer is “knockout” together, but in the video you said that “knock out” separate, means “put someone unconscious”. So i don’t get it.

Wednesday, March 6th 2013

    Hi Patricia

    This one was a bit tricky. Knockout is correct. Here we are asking about the situation (it), so are looking for a noun. IT is called A knockout.

    Does that help?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

thank you very much

Thursday, March 7th 2013

By the way, do you like soccer game or football?
Bye bye.

Thursday, March 7th 2013

    Hi Paulo,

HI, Adam.
Could you please tell me about using It, Its, Look or looks

Friday, March 8th 2013

    Hi Ko,

    Your question is a little too general I’m afraid. Can you tell me more specifically what you want to know?

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

this is the first time i study with adam and i found him a great teacher, adam you are a KNOCKOUT teacher!thanks a lot.

Friday, March 8th 2013

I have some questions:

1. Do we use a preposition “to” when someone wants us to do something? For example:
“join us” — “join to us”
“give dad” — “give to dad”

2. Quantities + people. When we talk about people and we want to express how many entities there are, do we use “of”?

million people — million of people

3. How to pronounce following numbers:

1/3, 2/3, 3/5, etc.

4. How pronounce 0,764 and other similar numbers. Do we only use “point” after zero, or is there other way to say it?

5. When we are talking about time, what does exactly mean “by 10”?

Friday, March 8th 2013

    Hi Morfik,

    1. Usually when we have both a direct and indirect object, we’ll need the to if it comes between them. (Give it to dad- it-direct ob., dad-ind. obj) However, if the order is reversed, then don’t need it. (Give dad the key vs. Give the key to dad)

    2. A million people (one million people). Millions of people. (don’t forget the s.)

    3. 1/3- one third, or a third,
    2/3- two thirds,
    3/5- three fifths (the ths is a bit hard to pronounce, but not as hard as 5/6 five sixths) ;)

    4. How pronounce 0,764 and other similar numbers. Do we only use “point” after zero, or is there other way to say it? Nope- zero point seven six four. It’s called a decimal but we always say point. 1.23- one point two three

    5. By means on or before. It might be a little confusing to compare by/until, but that might make a good lesson. Anyway, 10:10 is too late. Unless of course I completely misunderstood the question.

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

      Thanks, you and other EngVid teachers have answered to all my questions that I had written in my notebook. xD Now, I have to review them from time to time, but most of the answers I learned almost instantly. Thanks for your time. :) Of course, I will be asking another questions, but now I need some time.

      Wednesday, March 13th 2013

Outstanding !!! Thanks Adam

Friday, March 8th 2013

love it

Friday, March 8th 2013

could you plz, give a lesson about: money. what’s the meaning of, I owe you and you owe me?
what’s the real meaning of balance?

Friday, March 8th 2013

    Hi Ana,

    I will definitely try. For now:

    I owe you suggests that you did something for me or gave me something, and now I need to return the effort. You owe me is the same but in reverse.

    As for balance, you’ll need to give me a more specific situation. otherwise it just means equal.

    Hope that helps :)

    Tuesday, March 12th 2013

Hi Mr. Adam I know you will read my comment as other student here, a suggestion for all crew of engVid.com, could you make a special video at 500th video lessons as a celebration, maybe attended by all English teacher here, I think it will be fun and can’t wait for that… thanks ^_^

Saturday, April 13th 2013

hi teacher Adam..i want you to give me a lot of examples about every word..knock over and knock out.. and i want you to make a lesson about the verb when he followed by up..cause any verb had meaning but when it followed by up completely the meaning will be changed or increased..

Tuesday, April 16th 2013

Sunday, May 12th 2013

Hi, Tanks for you’re lessons!!!
Today I were Tinking about why people sometimes say: I gonna….(read a book) and sometimes they say gotta? can u explein me that I have asked to my teacher, but she doesn’t did not how to explein me that….

Thursday, May 30th 2013

    “Gonna” is short for “going to”, and “gotta” is short for “got to” — so “I gotta read a book” means “I have got to read a book”, or “I must read a book”. Hope that helps!

    Monday, June 3rd 2013

hello Adam thanks a lot for today’s lesson that is great i’ve get to usnedstanding some about that i wish that for all have good luck….

Sunday, July 14th 2013

Hi Adam. The other day, I came across a knockout girl and I was eager to talk to her. Unfortunately, as soon as I started talking to her, I found myself on the ground knocked down by a kind of gorilla, her so-called boyfriend (she would be better off with me as a boyfriend). The monster was wearing knockoff Hugo Boss suit and Church shoes and a Rolex watch. I wanted to knock him out but, you see, I’m so tender that I didn’t. I had just enough time to tell him next time I would meet the girl I’d knock her up, I saw thousands of stars being knocked out I don’t know why. Life isn’t smart!!

Saturday, August 3rd 2013

    BEST COMMENT OF 2013!

What is the meaning of “hang out”

Thursday, September 26th 2013

Thanks Adam

Thursday, September 26th 2013

    For this lesson

    Thursday, September 26th 2013

      Thanks Adam

      Saturday, September 28th 2013

Adam I have one doubt but not about this topic. what’s the difference between words AMONG and BETWEEN? thanks

Sunday, September 29th 2013

    Hi Fernando. I guess the diference is: when you use between, it means that you are talking about two things/places/people. For example: I must to choose between these shirts (I must to choose one of these two shirts). Otherwise, when you use among, you’re talking about three or more things. For instance, “My socks were among hers”. I hope you get it.

    Monday, October 7th 2013

      Hi Thiago. Thanks for the help one more doubt has ended!!

      Wednesday, October 16th 2013

Hi, guys!
I couldnt find appropriate place to put my thoughts on.
Could you give me a short explanation why its so easy – to understand Adams’ lessons. And at other hand, i cant understand even 10% of what native english speakers talk about. I mean Discovery channel, news on TV, etc.
Are these lessons (hopefully not) are used to improve students, who are really good with english daily talking already? Thanks.

Friday, February 7th 2014

I’m very happy that i understood everything in this lesson.But, of course there are a lot of things to learn(in English).

Thursday, July 31st 2014

Hello sir. I have a question for you. Please answer me if you have time.

Hello Mr Adam. I’m a new student in English department, and I wanted to ask you. What co does mean when it lies in the beginning of the words and where it came from . I have perfect lecturers in my university, just like you . But I don’t have the ability to them about every thing. May I have your answer, please.

Saturday, April 11th 2015

i am too confused about the question number 9 . you said that knockout means out of order and knock out means to hit and beat someone. could you please clarify that to me

Monday, April 13th 2015

I am boastful to say I got 10/10 in first attempt. However, I watched this video 3 times before taking the quiz.
Thank you Sir Adam! :)

Friday, May 1st 2015

Very useful. Thanks, Adam.

Very interesting and useful lesson, Mr. Adam!!!

Tuesday, May 19th 2015

Thank You!

Sunday, July 5th 2015

Thank you, Adam!

Saturday, August 1st 2015

Thank you for your lesson.

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Terrible. 60%. Good teacher , bad student:)

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

thanks a lot mu best teacher..But there is another meaning of “knock up” an example.. The players have a couple of minutes to knock up before the match start…. Is it mean to “warm up”?

Thursday, October 1st 2015

    I looked it up, and apparently you’re right — for sports played with racquets, like tennis, it means to hit the ball around for practice before a match. However, as someone who knows very little about sports, if I heard that I would assume the players had to very quickly get some people pregnant!

    Thursday, October 1st 2015

Most of these are new to me. Many thanks.

Sunday, October 18th 2015

thank you Adam.

Thursday, November 5th 2015
