Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Hi Adam,
That’s a great lesson! Thanks a lot.
I did the text, and I was able to score 90% of it. I believe if I watch the video again, I will get the last part.
However, I need a bit of explanation on the ‘ by time + an adjective clause.
Thanks again!

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Thanks very much for this useful lesson, i got 8/10.
In the question 6, the answer “no sooner then” is suitable, but i still see that “no later than” is also can be as answer.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Again a great lesson, Adam

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Great lesson Adan! I missed the number 6 exercise because I didn’t know the meaning of the word “hurry” in the context. I realize that to use prepositions correctly it is necessary to keep in mind the grammar rules and make a logical effort in each sentence. Thank you!

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Hi,
Why don’t you use until in the last question?
Thank you in advance!

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Will have had….Please share few more examples

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

THANK YOU ADAM…!

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi Doc
    what’s up in Italy?
    are you from the north or from the south?

    Tuesday, January 10th 2017

      Hi, I’m from the north of Italy very close to France…!
      Bye

      Tuesday, January 10th 2017

      Lemarvillois,You’re right,you are really interested in knowing people from all around the word!does it have an special reason? You asked me a question about my country too. I wanted to say I answered to your question in the last training video. You can see you answer there.

      Wednesday, January 11th 2017

        hi , I’m glad to write to you again
        I want to know people from every where ,there ‘s no special reason. I ‘m interested to know others countries and cultures. The internet is a wonderful place for that .Last time , I made a very big mistake and I’m sorry about that, I’m sure now you’re from Iran (not Irak, with a K in France)
        let’s leave messages sometimes to each other it would be nice!

        Wednesday, January 11th 2017

Hello Adam, I’m searching for a lesson about how to use words (by or using) in examples like:
‘I repaired the server [by/using] restart application.’ of ‘I wake up by drink (means with help of) a cup of coffee’ I don’t know what part of grammar relates to this problem and do not know how to search it. Could you help me to find something about it?

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Great lesson Adam!!!Perfect to make this difficult topic clear.
Thanks ;)

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

“To take advantage of this incredible offer, please drop by the car dealership _____ noon on Sunday. Don’t miss the deadline!”
The answer is “no later than”, I answered “until” instead. I would like to know why I can’t use “until” in this case. :) Thanks from now.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Great lesson Andam. This was my first quiz and i got 7/10

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Adam , you’re almost the best teacher on Engvid.
you would be the best if you would work more than 3 hours a day :)

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

The topic seems to be clear and discussed a lot, but I have found more details here than in Emma’s lesson. Good tips are to think about verbs and the perfect tenses. Unfortunately, I got 8/10.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

could you please make a lesson about past perfecet

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Hello Adam! It’s a very good lesson, as always. Thank you.
I think we need a lesson about future perfect. Sometimes I have a trouble with it.
But today when I was reading I faced with a strange phrase I guess. It said “There ain’t no reason to do this”. That seemed very strange for me because from EngVid I know that double negative is bad, but it exists as I see. Of course sometimes the “ain’t” drives me mad.
Can you help me to figure it out?

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Thanks very much for this great lesson

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Great lesson! No more confusion from now on:)
Thanks Adam.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

20 :( the worst score ever. Don’t get it.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

08/10 Thanks Adam for the unique Lesson.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

GREAT LESSON, CONGRATULATIONS.
MAY I USE “ABOUT” INSTEAD OF “BY”.
EX: I’LL BE THERE ABOUT 7.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Hi Adam.
Thank you for your teaching.
In Persian, my native language, when something is 100% certain for future and it will happen for sure undoubtedly, you can even use past tense!. for example, if I’m being expected at a party and I’m on way and my friends call me and ask me where I am. I can reply: I arrived there; instead of “I’ll arrive there”.

I was wondering if there is a same concept in English?

by the way, it’s interesting when you think about it. if something WILL happen, it’s like something happened in the past.
I suppose this exists in Arabic language as well. maybe Arabic speakers here would approve.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hello compatriot, I’m so glad you are here. I have a question, where you took your picture? Is it Phin in Kashan??? I’m just curious, that’s why I asked

    Wednesday, January 11th 2017

      Hello there.
      you’re right. It’s Fin Garden in Kashan City.

      Wednesday, January 11th 2017

        Oh my God. That was Fun not Phin!!!! 😶

        Wednesday, January 11th 2017

          Oh my God. That was Fin not Phin!!!😶

          Wednesday, January 11th 2017

          Yes. The spelling doesn’t matter, its beauty does.

          Wednesday, January 11th 2017

        Hello Mr. Kashi. Are you sure that using past instead of future is grammatically correct in our language ? I think it is used in speaking only for emphasize on a thing we are sure about doing it. Best regards

        Wednesday, January 11th 2017

          Hi there. I think you approved my meaning; “to emphasize on a thing we are sure about doing it”.
          and that’s exactly my point is it exits in English or even other languages as well?
          Good Luck.

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          It rarely happens in movies ! When some one for example asks ” What happened to them ?” And the other one replies ” Imagine them dead ! Or they were killed ” . But really they are still alive ! I think it also happens in natural situation and we cannot say we use it or we will use it in future . It ,in fact depends on the mood of speaker ! However It’s my personal idea .

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          I’m not sure about the answer . To know if there is in other languages or not I should study more .

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          to for for !

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          to emphasize not for .

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          nice

          Friday, January 13th 2017

Hi Adam,thanks for these useful lessons.I have learned many grammer topic and so on. However, I want to say that ı have some trouble with reductions. Such as reduction of Adjective clauses and adverb clauses. For example: John is the only person to understand me. where did “to” come from? Could you help me to understand this? Thanks in Advance!

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Thursday, January 12th 2017

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

Hi Adam. Thank you for the lesson.(By the way “Catcher in the field” was removed from youtube and I didn’t download this audiobook. So if you could do me a favour again – recomend me some audiobook). “Catcher” helped me a lot. Thank you.

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

    Sorry “Catcher in the Rye”.

    Saturday, January 14th 2017

      “Catcher” really helped me to improve my North American accent.

      Saturday, January 14th 2017

Thank you Adam.it’s not easy for me.

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

I Got 9/10 :)

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

Thank you Mr Adam. There are many things that we should khow about English !

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

Well, in the 6th question I have had a doubt about the time when the shipment would have to depart because I thought that it was at the pier by then, so I used “until”, but the question is focused on the time that the shipment will arrive tomorrow because it wasn’t there at that moment, so you used “no sooner than”, in fact, it is a question focused on the future. Besides in the 10th question, I have another doubt with the answer because this question uses an imperative like “have”, and its answer isn’t a precise time using “by the time” or “around the moment the speaker is in his office”, and I thought the answer would have more precision at the moment the speaker wanted the project. Anyway, I will have to review again the lesson and get more feedback. Thanks a lot, teacher Adam, a very good explanation.

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

WOW, Nice lesson really
Thank you Adam

Thursday, January 12th 2017

Hi dear,

Many thanks for your great job. You always lighten things we cannot notice.
I would like to watch lessons about ‘ prescriptive grammar’.

have a nice day Adam.

Thursday, January 12th 2017

Hi Adam
Mr Adam I should metion that your lessons are very entertaining and well-organized. Learning grammar with your lessons is very enjoyable. I have a favor. Can you explain how can I use this words correctly ? Rather , either , neither , I would be grateful if you explained it as well as I expected. Thank you in advance.

Thursday, January 12th 2017

This lesson is the Easies one of ur lessons Mr Adam

Thursday, January 12th 2017

why that idiot supervisor hide my remarks?

Thursday, January 12th 2017

Thanks, Adam.
But I have a question and hope you can help.
‘grow crops on a field’ or ‘grow crops in a field’;
‘plant crops on a field’ or ‘plant crops in a field’
Which of them are correct?
If I change field to farmland, is there any difference of preposition?

Thursday, January 12th 2017

That was very easy for me. thank you Adan

Thursday, January 12th 2017

Saturday, January 14th 2017

Sir, this statement is correct or not if not then what is the correct statement “Work hard until you dont have to introduce yourself”

Saturday, January 14th 2017

I m unfortunate this time ,cannot watch the video today just tomorrow.Nevertheless, is it inappropriate, dear Adamto ask you agrammatical question and be directly answered.
A sentence that need to be corrected,any sentence of mine.because i either dont know how to adress you properly,or dont get answeredor loose sight of my questions and have no clues where they areIt would matter that I get answered,It matters to me,I think english since haing turned 15,faults in it i dont bear

Tuesday, January 17th 2017

Hi Adam
literally speaking,finding where we should use these two words are quite confusing.I got 7/10.
I think native speakers use these two words interchangeably and it is understood by most people.

Tuesday, January 17th 2017

great lesson. and many thanks but unfortunately i got 6/10.

Wednesday, January 18th 2017
