    The lesson deals with an issue that is rarely addressed in language courses or rather is never touched upon.

    It is important to know how to approach customs officers at the airpont , but above all what they expect from you.

    Thanks for sharing this tips with us Mr. Benn

    Sunday, January 18th 2015

I remind…when I visited the U.S, a customs officer asked me “what’s the purpose of your visit?” I answered “travel” :)
Thank you, Adam. Useful :)

Friday, December 5th 2014

Thx adam. You’re speaking vary slow and week. could you please speak little louder and quickly?

Friday, December 5th 2014

    Hi Evil,

    I have to speak so that as many people as possible can understand. Sometimes that might be a little slower than normal. Watch my IELTS videos… I speak faster there.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

I’d like to know the rules for adding “S” in the third person. e.g. plays, cooks, runs etc.
I know the most common verbs that takes the “S”
but I don’t know the exact rule. Can you halp me please.!

Friday, December 5th 2014

    Final -s, not -es, is added to most verbs.

    Visit >> Visits Answer >> Anwsers Speak >> Speaks

    Many verbs end in -e. Final -s is simply added.

    hope >> hopes write >> writes.

    Final -es is added if the verb ends in -ch, -sh, -s, -x or -z.

    catch >> catches wash >> washes pass >> passes

    fix >> fixes buzz >> buzzes.

    Final -es is added to do and go.

    do >> does go >> goes

    If the verb ends in consonat plus -y, change the -y to -i and add -es.

    study >> studies try >> tries

    And if the verb ends in a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) plus -y, simply add -s.

    pay >> pays buy >> buys play >> plays

    I hope this help you.

    Friday, December 5th 2014

    Hi Elvin,

    Zemei pointed out some useful things. I’ll add that when the subject is in the third person (He,She, It) and the verb is in the present simple tense, you will need an ‘s’.

    He plays tennis.
    She doesn’t play tennis.
    Does it look like tennis?

    See the ‘s’ in each?

If I have three cheeseburgers and I don’t want to hide it, big fat customs officer allows my visit to the US? I ready to take him all of my cheeseburgers. )

Friday, December 5th 2014

    cool :)
    i think custom officer let you visit the US exactly for the cheeseburger ;)

    Monday, December 8th 2014

thank you very much adam

Friday, December 5th 2014

Thanks so much Adam for your teaching

Friday, December 5th 2014

Thank you adam. 88%

Friday, December 5th 2014

Adam, in question 7, the correct answer is “as long as I can”. But this isn’t my doubt. Why did you write, in one of the choices, “I have a one-year open ticket” and not “I have an one-year open ticket”?

Friday, December 5th 2014

    When”o” makes the same sound as “w” in “won” then A is used.

    Friday, December 5th 2014

      That’s right, byte! Thanks.

      Saturday, December 6th 2014

      Thank you byte! I had forgotten it!

      Saturday, December 6th 2014

      i’m agree with byte ;)

      Monday, December 8th 2014

      Good answer :)

      Saturday, December 20th 2014

    Because “a” relates to the word “ticket”.

    Saturday, December 6th 2014

      Oh, it’s my mistake…

      Saturday, December 6th 2014

    It depends not from letters(but from sounds).

    Friday, December 26th 2014

By the way, thank you very much! This site is superb!

Friday, December 5th 2014

Hello Adam. Thank you for your useful good lesson. I’ve never gone to foreign countries. This lesson will help me a lot when I go to overseas. Appreciate it.

Thank you so much for this lesson, Adam. Very helpful :)
By the way, could you make a lesson about differences between Canadian English and American English? :D

Saturday, December 6th 2014

    Ronnie has a lesson with some Canadian vocabulary: http://www.engvid.com/canadian-english/

    But to be honest, the differences aren’t that important.

    Saturday, December 6th 2014

    Hi Stanilaus,

    To be honest, Canadian English is somewhere between British and American. The main differences are spelling (e.g. color vs. colour). Other than that, it’s about regional dialects and each area has its own slang and expressions, so a lesson wouldn’t be very universal anyway. Most dictionaries will give yo the different spellings.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

I got 3 correct out of 8 score. I am not good English Language. Thanks Adam

Saturday, December 6th 2014

    Keep trying Ukrit. It’ll come :)

      Tuesday, January 6th 2015

thanks a lot adam!
in other country they might ask you with different word, but same meaning. nah thats the problem. if i dont know the meaning i will ask to repeat it and they will explain clearly (with more annoyed expression of course haha)

Saturday, December 6th 2014

    Not always Hafiz. Sometimes they’ll just say it the same way (with the annoyed expression) :)

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

awesome site

Saturday, December 6th 2014

Thanks for help us with the pronunciation :D

Saturday, December 6th 2014

Very usefull. Thank you!

Saturday, December 6th 2014

The first and last time till today I flew to USA, I was questioned by a security officer. And he spoke so fast, asking short questions – the one you showed in the video.
As I didn’t understand that much what he said, sometimes I was hesitating.
– Why don’t you answer me, he asked.
I just laughed – never do this.
– Why are you laughing?
– You speak too fast for me, I don’t understand you sometimes, I answered
What a look he gave me (aren’t they used to foreigners in airports?)
And then I tried my best to keep serious, even if I felt like being under fire, you know, like with a gun machine. It was a weird experience. And when all was finished, I felt like I’ve done something superhuman. Go through the US security!

Sunday, December 7th 2014

    very amazing story :)

    Monday, December 8th 2014

    Thanks Annie. That’s actually the mystery– they know foreigners are coming through, yet they don’t even try to ease the language. I don’t get it myself. :)

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

    Annie, I experienced the same thing once on a job interview. I heard the “C++” with ‘a’ sound, but I always read it before as ‘u’ (russian pronunciation) and I couldn’t get it. When I eventually got it, I burst out of non-stop laughing. The interview of course were postponed. :-)
    It’s quite a weird sensation.

    Monday, February 2nd 2015

Thank you Teacher and Thank you Annie974 your experience is very good.

Sunday, December 7th 2014

Thanks a lot!!

Sunday, December 7th 2014

USA custom officers were totally mean to me. They want you to have troubles.
I wısh they would taste same things ası wasa forced to taste couple years ago.

Sunday, December 7th 2014

    They’re mean to everybody Oguz. Don’t let it bother you if possible.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

      Thank you Sir for feedbacks.
      I will be keep watching all videos you would uploud here.

      Wednesday, December 24th 2014

I like him. He made me feel that even I can understand most of what a native speaker explains in English. It is just because he speaks English clearly and in plain words so that we viewers can understand him, though.

Sunday, December 7th 2014

Very practical, concisely and at the point. Please for more this kind of instalment !

Sunday, December 7th 2014

thanks

Sunday, December 7th 2014

Excellent class and test if you follow this indications you will be out of pro
blems at any US airport . Listening the video I got a better pronunciation but I still need more. Thanks to Engvid.com !

Sunday, December 7th 2014

nice lesson

Sunday, December 7th 2014

i did not understand what was type of questions.

Sunday, December 7th 2014

    Hi Ishtiaq,

    You can watch the lesson again and ask me questions here.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

Please, I’ve got a job interview and in need of assistance.
I need an answer to a question ( how to achieve your sales target?) I do not know how to answer and what I say… please help me

Sunday, December 7th 2014

    Hi Suesy,

    Not sure when your interview is, but one thing you can mention is the technique(s) you use to sell the product. (it might help to know what it is you are selling to give you more specific advice). Mention your target audience and how to adapt to a slow market.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

hi very helpful.but i have a qestion about PROBLEM and ISSUE? when i use one of them./i have a problem whit my son,or i have issue whit my son?

Sunday, December 7th 2014

    “I have a problem with…” for me is more clear :)
    bye bye

    Monday, December 8th 2014

      thank you

      Monday, December 8th 2014

        contact me if you want talk with a english student like you. bye bye

        Monday, December 8th 2014

          Hi dear lionluke, I like to speake with you, how we can have conversation with each other?

          Monday, December 8th 2014

    Hi Draganka,

    I think they can both be used in similar situations. That being said, I would use issues with people, but not with things in most cases.

    Also, we often use issues as slang for problems, especially when we talk a bout a person’s psychological or attitude problems. Problem is more concrete and can be solved, while issues is a problem that doesn’t go away, even if you know the solution.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

      Adam, Thanks for the customs-passing lesson and the issue/problem puzzle solving as well.
      It turns out that reading comments is a pretty nice idea! )

      Monday, February 2nd 2015

Thank Adam, I’v just finished listening to your vid which helps me much in learning English, see you as much as pos.

Sunday, December 7th 2014

Thanks Adam, a very useful lesson! I have just a grammar question. At the minute 2.53 you said: “a few of the more common question that they might ask you”.
Why you said the more and not the most? Thanks!

Sunday, December 7th 2014

    Hi Piera,

    Good question. I use more because it is a comparative. In other words these questions are more common than other questions. I can’t say they are the most common, because I don’t know what the most common questions are.

    I hope this helps.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

Good job very useful

Monday, December 8th 2014

thank Adam very much.

Monday, December 8th 2014

It’s very useful to me, thank you very much.

Monday, December 8th 2014

Thank you again,Adam. It’s useful.

Monday, December 8th 2014

    By the way Adam. Which is correct IT IS USEFUL or THIS IS USEFUL? And when one must use the first one and when the second one?

    Tuesday, December 16th 2014

      I mean IT IS or THIS IS.

      Tuesday, December 16th 2014

        It’s a girl/this is a girl
        It’s correct/this is correct
        …………………….
        ……………………..

        Tuesday, December 16th 2014

          That’s a good question Katrin. I’ll make a video about it. It’s a little too long for here ;)

          Saturday, December 20th 2014

          Thank you Adam. I’ll be waiting.

          Monday, December 22nd 2014

Useful information.

Monday, December 8th 2014

I enjoyed your lesson, as usual. It was useful and amusing. I love your pronunciation. You are the English native speaker I understand the best. Thank you very much for your lessons!

Monday, December 8th 2014

Adam, you’re awesome! Thanks a mill!

Monday, December 8th 2014

what’s the difference between for and since -and please explain the o’clock please and thanx alot (:

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

    Hi Lina,

    It depends on the context you are using it in. for and since can both mean because. Used with a present perfect tense, use for followed by a period of time (I have lived in Canada for ten years). Use since followed by a specific time (I have lived here since 1999).

    Oclock is used when we say a round time (9:00 o’clock). It comes from of the clock.

    Hope this helps.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

Thanks

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

I wonder why is your lesson about US customs without any hint to the fact that the experience might be more or less similar elsewhere, in Canada maybe. Is it because in the US they are really a bore ? ;)

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

    Hi GHC,

    American customs officers are a little famous for their attitude. Canadian customs do it a little differently. They understand not everyone who comes to the airport speaks English. Also, in the US they are much more paranoid about terrorists.

    Hope this helps.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

      Thanks David, I’m not really surprised. ;)

      Sunday, December 21st 2014

Thank you Adam

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

Good evening. Adam.

I’m a Braziian teacher and I’ve taught to a person who is gonna travel to Australia. So, those advice is usefull for there too? I mean, fot customs.
Congrats for your class. It’s easier to understand.

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

    Hi Jpresence,

    The questions are generally the same as is the process. The attitude should be very different :)

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

Thank you for these advices

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

No doubt: Travelling is one of the best things in life.The problem is lack of money…I have to work harder and harder.By the way, it is a pleasure to listen and learn from you.Thanks a lot.

Hallo my teacher Adam. I’m Rido from Indonesia. I am an English teacher at Nursing School. I am also master program student of TEFL in Tanjungpura University, Indonesia. The Engvid materials all really helpful and useful for me especially. I want to share the videos of you and also other teachers, but in a different form. I mean, I also want to make a video and the materials will be taken from engvid. Is it allowed for me to do that? Thank very much Mr Adam.

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

    Hi Mahin,

    I’m afraid these videos aren’t available for download. If you can connect the internet in your class, you can watch them with your students.

    You can send an email to Engvid and ask as well.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

      Thank you.

      Monday, December 22nd 2014

One day from my life.

19 December

I woke up at 11.00 and begin to drink tea at once. After 15 minutes I had my breakfast. Presently I turned on my computer and linked the Internet, because I wanted to know the price of dollar and the price of oil. The oil’s price was little reduced. And the price of dollar was much increased in comparing with ruble. Of course I was upset.
At 13.00 I had to be seeing my doctor, because I made an appointment. I was there at 12.50. The people who were in the turn said that there is a live turn and I have to be after them. I was not very much upset, because I was to be at work only by 16.00, so I agreed with them.
I like my present work. It linked with kids.
But I don’t want to tell about it too much.
At 21.30 I was at home and I was very glad. I had my supper(by the way, in what time do you have dinner,because in schools the teachers teach little kids that the dinner is at 12.00- 14.00).I don’t agree with them. In movies I see that lunch happens at 12.00-14.00.
I will not go to sleep yet. Because every night I watch Hollywood movies. Some movies are very good. Especially I like retro movies. But some new movies are not bad. For instance,recently I watched “The Moonrise kingdom” and “Spider-man 2”. I liked those movies. And also I like movies with Bill Murray.
So thank you Adam for attention.
If it is not too hard for you, mark my mistakes.(But not grammar mistakes)I mean I want to speak like native speakers.
So goodbye!(it took me 10 minutes)
Thank you.

Friday, December 19th 2014

    Hi Katrin,

    I’ll just point out a couple of things:

    1- we wait in line for out turn

    2- dinner is usually 5-7, lunch is 12-2, supper is after 9p.m.

    There are some grammar mistakes, but you don’t want me to point those out ;)

    You write very well. It is clear what you are trying to say.

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

      Saying grammar I mean the spelling. Of course,Adam, if you will mark mistakes,I will be glad. But I really want to speak very well, so people thought I was born in Canada or US. Thank you.

      Monday, December 22nd 2014

…and it’s Christmas time again!
I’d really like to thank you for all your lessons, your dedication to your profession, the
caring that we feel in everything you do.

Besides your great capacity and deep knowledge of the English language, I admire you specially for one side of your
personality. You are a humble person. I think
that’s paramount to get to students’s hearts.
I’d like to quote the unforgettable Nelson
Mandela.
“When you talk to a man in a languge he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk
to a man in his language that goes to his heart.”

So English is and I think it will always be a universal language.

So,Merry Christmas,Adam. And I wonderful New
Year.

Friday, December 19th 2014

    Thank you Sonia. That’s a great quote.

    I wish you a very merry Christmas and a great new year as well. :)

    Saturday, December 20th 2014

Happy holidays everyone :)

Saturday, December 20th 2014

    Happy holidays Adam and everyone :)

    By the way, I have a question about “Season’s greetings”. Is it the same meaning (more or less formal?).

    Sunday, December 21st 2014

      Hi Annie,

      It’s more inclusive, meaning you can say it to anyone without offending them (politically correct) :)

Hy Adam) first of all i want to express my gratitude to you) thanks for the videos. They are really interesting and useful. But i want to ask some questions. You know, when i listen to video i can understand it but i can’t understand it quickly. When someone speaks English fast, i can’t understand all of his words. When i try to speak English, first i think then i say. But, for example i know russian language perfectly and i can speak without thinking. What do you think about it? And what should i do to understand English fully, without any difficulties?
I am sorry if i had mistakes in my message) And thanks in advance

    Hi Elay,

    To be honest, it’s just practice and time. You can try listening to more native speakers and follow with transcripts. Check out ted.com. Lots of practice there :)

    Friday, January 9th 2015

It is very informative lesson. Thank you Adam )

Sunday, December 21st 2014

Tuesday, December 23rd 2014

Hi again, Adam!

I’d like to tell you about my journey to the sea Lasarevskoye. It was seven years ago. We went to the sea with my Mum. It was very beautiful and I took a lot of pictures. The weather was very good. We swam for a long time. The sea was so warm that my Mum couldn’t take me out from the water. It was very funny. In the evening(or in the evenings)we went to a water park and Dolphinarium. I liked it very much. We ate a lot of fruit every day. One day we went to the mountains. There we visited waterfall. It was very interesting. I liked to have a rest like this.

Adam,check it,please. Thank you.

Tuesday, December 23rd 2014

How tough situation it would be :(

Dear Sir,

Thank you very much for your useful lesson.
It will help me a lot, because i’ll fly to Doha near future.

Friday, January 2nd 2015

Respect! Very important video. You know … some custom’s persons are very funny and glad to speak. In 2007 I went to Alaska from Moscow-Paris-NY-Seatle. And my custom’s person in NY asked me about my back way and he supposed it’s easy to sail by canoe from Akaska to Russia through Bering Strait:))

Sunday, January 4th 2015

    Ha! Several years ago a politician from Alaska said that she could see Russia from her house, which is a big exaggeration. The Bering Strait is about 90km wide and there are islands right in the middle. It’s still a very long canoe trip, so if you decide to paddle to Alaska, try doing it in the summer when the sun doesn’t set!

I didn’t understand when you said: ” I have a one-year…” I thought would be: ” I have an one-year…” because it is a vowel… great lesson!!!

Hi Adam, I think the answer 3 “3. U.S. customs officers are unfriendly and mean people” is not coorect because customs officers is not a friend person??

Thank you, Adam. thanks a lot. it was informative and useful.

Friday, August 14th 2015

Thanks very much for Adam’s lesson about US customs. I have one little question about this lesson:

There is a sentence pair:
“How long will you be staying in the U.S.? Again, never say: “I don’t know.””
“You do know. You have a return ticket out.”

What does ‘out’ means in the last sentence? I have read many dictionaries, but still can’t find the meaning of it. Could anyone please teach me about this usage? Thank you very much.

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

Jeje even with these questions they get you scare. Great job Adam

Hi Adam. I have waited your lessons because they are very interesting and informative. Could you please make a lesson about tips and questions for study visa in the U.S? Thank you very much!

Tuesday, December 1st 2015

Good video Adam, thanks!
I remembered, when I visited first time to US, during custom check, the officer asked me: “Are you nervous?”, and instead “No, I’m calm” I answered “No, I’m claim”. Because I was really nervous and confused these words “calm” and “claim”.
P.S. Sorry for my English :)
