      Thank you Mr adam…

      Thursday, October 16th 2014

      Hi Adam, how’ve you been?

      I’ve noticed you answer to all type of grammar questions posted here even though they are not related to the topic of the lesson.

      So, I took the liberty of asking you a couple of questions on the following sentence:

      ” I think it is too big A price.”

      – What’s the name of this grammar pattern?
      – How is it form or constructed?

      Thanks in advance for clarifying my doubts.

      Saturday, October 18th 2014

        Hi Regino,

        It doesn’t really have a name. It is a formal structure that is dependent on the indefinite article (a/an). It also isn’t limited to ‘too’:

        as/how/so/too/this/that + adjective + a/an + noun

        In essence it is a quantifying adverb phrase meaning so adj/such an adjective

        The price is so high that I can’t afford it.
        It is such a high price that I can’t afford it.
        I think it is too high a price.

        Hope this helps.

        Friday, October 31st 2014

          hay adam,the price is so high that I can’t afford it.
          at this sentence should we use ‘too’ ? because this sentence has negative meaning.
          the price is too high that I can’t afford it.
          thanks for your clarifying

          Wednesday, November 5th 2014

          Hi Manolya,

          In that case, you would need to change the conjunction:

          The price is too high, so (that) I can’t afford it.

          In that case, the second clause is a result.

          However, by saying that the price is “too” high, the second part is redundant (unnecessary). If it’s too high, it means you can’t afford it.

          Hope this helps.

          Wednesday, November 19th 2014

    Would this be comprehending? It looks like we will have to buy sweets tomorrow!

Thank you !

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

Thanks adam, this is really useful

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

At first glance expressions with LOOK seem easy to use, however as you deep into them things do not look that easy.

Knowing a bit of grammar helps to understand much better their use and meaning.

Are they phrasal verbs/idiomatic expressions?

Many thanks for this video-lesson Adam.

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

    They’re comparatives mostly. You might want to consider them similes, but that’s a whole other story :)

    Friday, October 31st 2014

alhamdolellah I got 100% ^^ , thanks Adam !

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

Thank you so much!

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

Thank you very much for this lesson!
Can you please tell me how to use “arrive in” and “arrive at” ?
Thank you so much :))

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

    Hi Hoaithuong,

    After a quick search, i have to agree with the common explanation that arrive in is used for a city (or big place) while arrive at is used for a smaller place, like a station.

    Arrive at can also mean reacha conclusion (arrive at a conclusion).

    Hope this helps.

    Friday, October 31st 2014

I got 8 correct out of 10. I was confused a little.
Thank you, Adam :)

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

Thanks for the class Adam. This subject isn’t easy.

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

I’ve got 70% scores. I have to practise and practise much more. thank you so much ;))

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

Hi Adam thanks alot for your help.
I have a question related with your writing transitions’s video, Is besides used as well as furthermore, moreover and in addition? I mean, in a TOEFL essay, for example.
I’ll gladly if you keep doing videos about the TOEFL
test.
Thanks again!

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

    Hi Cdmunoz,

    ‘Besides’ can be used to add a point. the key is to include the first idea after besides and add the second idea after:

    Besides its good taste, a banana’s composition also provides essential vitamins to one’s diet.

    If you use besides on its own, it means something like ‘anyway’

    hope this helps.

    Friday, October 31st 2014

    There is a precise video by Emma on besides vs beside. This is an additional comment to Adam’s below explanation.

    Saturday, November 1st 2014

    Friday, December 12th 2014

May I ask you a question, Adam? In quiz no.10, why the correct answer is ‘it look…’? I think that the phrase ‘it looks…’ would be right. Do I miss something? Please teach me… thanks.

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

    The reply appeared to me ‘It looks…like’ !!

    Tuesday, October 14th 2014

    The same question Adam. Why so?

    Wednesday, October 15th 2014

    Hi. In Q#10 I used “looks… like” and I have it right.

    Wednesday, October 15th 2014

    Hi Moonyoung,

    The correct answer is looks like. That’s actually what appears there as well. Not sure why you see look like.

    Check again and let me know.

    Friday, October 31st 2014

Tnx a lot) it’s much more difficult that it looks like.
I’m really confused about using article “a” before name (sentence 2 in quiz).
Hope someone helps me to understand)))

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

    Hi Tsatsa,

    It reminds me of a character. The young (not old) Bogart. That’s why we use ‘a’. It’s not the name, it;s the character. Does this help?

    Friday, October 31st 2014

It was useful to me so much. Thanks Adam waiting for more.

    Luisfer900530 skype… ;)

    Thursday, October 16th 2014

Adam, in this sentence:
Are you alright Mary? You _________ you haven’t slept in a long time.

why whe have to use look as though?

Thanks!

Thursday, October 16th 2014

    Hi Arielpg,

    Firstly, you will hear many native speakers use look like in this case. But, because there is a clause (sub. and verb) after the blank, you have to use a clause conjunction, which is ‘as’. ‘like’ is a preposition, so it can’t be followed by a clause.
    If you say ‘like’ in this case, though, everyone will understand you.

    On an English test, you will lose a point.

    Does this help?

    Friday, October 31st 2014

      Yes Adam, it helps! thanks

      Friday, October 31st 2014

Hello Adam !
I like your teaching style: calm not so fast and understandable.
Practicaly everything i know but as they say:

Thursday, October 16th 2014

got 8 out of 10

Thursday, October 16th 2014

Awesome class!

Thursday, October 16th 2014

Hi Adam, I would like you to clear my confusion about using noun after to and have had. Here’s some example.
1_ Girl said to her friend, I told someone today you would probably do a night shift to try and avoid me.
My question is can we use trying here instead of to try like this, you would probably do a night shift trying and avoid me.Is this correct.
2_ girl said to his friend, go home,you should have to get back to studying.
why we use studying after to instead of to study
we usually use verb after to.when and which condition we use noun after to.it gets me confused.
3_ I have had as much reality as i can handle today.
I want to learn using of have had.In which context and situation we use have had.do we use it for past tense.?

Thursday, October 16th 2014

    tell to somebody, not say

    Thursday, October 23rd 2014

    Hi Fari,

    First, the —ing. We use these words as gerunds in the examples you gave. In other words they are not verbs, but nouns that show an activity, like swimming, or reading. in the example you gave, the ‘to’ is not part of a verb; it is a preposition showing direction (get back to your room to study; get back to studying) this means return to the activity you were doing before.

    Have had is the present perfect of have. Remember that have can be used as a helping verb or a possessive action verb.

    I have a dog.
    I have had a dog for three years.

    Does this help a little?

    Friday, October 31st 2014

Adam your lessons are good presented, clearly and with simple examples. Thank you for your commitment.

Thursday, October 16th 2014

Damn it! I got 7 correct out of 10. Got 1, 5, 7 incorrect. I thought I knew about this ‘look’ verb. But it was OK, I like to improve it and see where I’m committing mistakes.

I thought ‘it looks like it’s going to rain’ was correct.

Well, I’m sure most people will keep saying it. Haha!

Thank you, Adam! :)

Thursday, October 16th 2014

    Hi Renata,

    Yes they will. If you take an English test though, it’ll cost you a point ;)

    Friday, October 31st 2014

Really good! I got 7 correct!

Thursday, October 16th 2014

hello. teacher Adam.
i got 7 out of 10.
i need to do more do my best to learn english.
Thank you
have a great day!

Thursday, October 16th 2014

This is really helpful for me..tnk u for sharing it for us..Godbless..

Friday, October 17th 2014

Your lessons and the way you speak are great. Many thanks. It helps a lot.

Friday, October 17th 2014

Hello. I’ve a question. look as if and look as though it can use only in the past?

Friday, October 17th 2014

    Hi Dinoalb,

    No, they can be used for all tenses:
    it looked as if he won
    It looks as though he’s going to win
    It looks as though he’s winning

    etc.

    Friday, October 31st 2014

I liked the lesson. Thank you, Adam.
But I’d like to know why you use the past tense in the example (as if it was/were going to rain)?

Friday, October 17th 2014

    Hi Valeriya,

    I think it was mostly to show that you still have to use the subjunctive with the ‘if’, just like in regular usage.

    Friday, October 31st 2014

Hello everyone.I got 5/10,this is bad.I need to study hard indeed.

Friday, October 17th 2014

I really aprreciate your lessons, they’re great

Friday, October 17th 2014

Hi adam,could you please explaining to us what the difference between affect and effect and giving us some examples on each one of them.Thank you so much for every thing.

Saturday, October 18th 2014

    Hi Ayman,

    The common answer is that affect is a verb and effect is a noun. It’s important to remember that effect can also be a verb.

    Affect: cause a change in something
    effect (n.): that change
    effect (v.): to bring about (a change. a mood, etc.)

    The sun affects the lighting of the Earth differently at different times of the day. Photographers like to take advantage of this to add different effects to their photos.

    The new CEO wanted to effect a new culture in the office, so he hired an HR consultant to advise him on how to do this.

    Does this help?

    Friday, October 31st 2014

10/10 it looks like I was born in Cambridge??!! ;-()

    Friday, October 31st 2014

Your lessons are my favorite Adam, thanks for taking the time to explain some answers in the quiz.

Sunday, October 19th 2014

Hello, Mr.Adam. Could you please create a lesson about verbs such as concludes, consists of, contains etc.
Thanks a lot)

    Friday, October 31st 2014

thank’s mr adam

Sunday, October 19th 2014

Although I watched this lesson more than twice yet I don’t know how to use “Looks as if” T^T

Sunday, October 19th 2014

    Hi Haiikyuu,

    It means that there is the possibility that something will be or will happen, but we;re not sure yet.

    It looks as if team A will easily beat team B.
    We think this because team A is full of good players, but it’s also possible they’ll lose.

    Does this help?

    Friday, October 31st 2014

Some help, please *^*

Sunday, October 19th 2014

it is useful lesson thank you Adam

Monday, October 20th 2014

hi adam why were you too fast at the end video.
you should write whole sentences . nevertheless thanks for your useful lesson

Tuesday, October 21st 2014

at the first. I didn’t understand ıt looks and as if together. Your words of sentence weren’t together
It looks as if it is going to rain
is it correct sentence or not
we must say, ıt looks as if it were going to rain.
after ‘as if’ must it be past tence
thanks for your answer in advance

Tuesday, October 21st 2014

    Hi Manolya,

    You can say looks as if it is going. Just keep in mind that technically you should use was/were, not as past tense, but rather as a subjunctive.

    Does this help?

    Friday, October 31st 2014

      thanks for your clarifying

      Wednesday, November 5th 2014

Can’t we use ‘is’ with look as if or look as though?

Tuesday, October 21st 2014

    Hi Tiana

    Yes, you can. Technically, we looks as if, the was/were is more correct , but both are acceptable.

    Friday, October 31st 2014

Hello, Adam…
Could you tell me the different between “saving” and “savings”??
Many thanks !!!!

Wednesday, October 22nd 2014

    Hi Thy,

    As for saving, it could be a gerund, meaning the activity. But without context, hard to tell.

    Savings is usually the money that you have saved over time. Probably the money in your bank account.

    Friday, October 31st 2014

very useful.

Wednesday, October 22nd 2014

Great video!

Hi Adam! Thank you for your answers at previous lesson. And I have more.
In an English textbook for Russian students I read:
LOOK AT THE FIRST OF THESE FOUR PICTURE.(is it a mistake that picture without “S”(I mean singular)?)Thank you.

Thursday, October 30th 2014

    Hi Katrin,

    Yes, it should be pictures.

    Friday, October 31st 2014

Thank you for your answers at previous lesson again and now I know if someone answers I HAVE BEEN TO LONDON it means that he was there some times ago. And if I only from London and staying in a doorpost I can answer I HAVE BEEN IN LONDON(I WAS IN LONDON).

Thursday, October 30th 2014

Can I say: I HAVE BEEN GOING TO THE LOCAL SCHOOL FROM 1994 TO 2004?
Can I say: I WENT TO THE LOCAL SCHOOL FROM 1994 TO 2004?
Can I say: I WILL HAVE BEEN GOING TO THE LOCAL SCHOOL SEANCE 2015 TILL 2025?

Thursday, October 30th 2014

    If it’s 2014, then the past simple is needed to talk about a definite past time. so:
    I WENT TO THE LOCAL SCHOOL FROM 1994 TO 2004
    is correct.

    In 2025, I will have been going to the local school for 11 years.

    Friday, October 31st 2014

      That’s a very big help! Thank you Adam!

      Friday, October 31st 2014

Thanks Adam. This topic looks like it is easier than it really is in practice.I had to assist the video three times before getting a 100 in the quiz.

Friday, October 31st 2014

Or “looks like easier than it really is in practice?”

Dear Adam, Thank you your detailed explanation, but I made the quiz several times and it has not been successful (4 from 10) I had problem especially with “look like”. Please explain one more time just this one expression ! I very appreciate your work and help! Thank You!

    Hi Vidamzenesz,

    Look like means that something has a similar appearance to something else.

    Tom looks like his father.

    ‘like’ is not a verb, it is a preposition, so it is important to remember that what comes after like is a noun or an adjective or a phrase.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, November 19th 2014

Hi Adam, thanks for your videos, there are very usefull!!
I need to practice my speaking, so I would like to speak with you or someone who want to practice.
I hope hear from you soon.

Tuesday, November 18th 2014

thanks Adam

Tuesday, November 18th 2014

Thank you dear Adam! Your answer was very useful. I’ve understood meaning of “Look like”,but why is it so important what is after “like”?

Monday, November 24th 2014

Thanks, good job :)

Wednesday, November 26th 2014

Today I’ve started to see in English the serie “Friends” and in the first episode I noticed the next sentence:
– You look like you slept with a hanger in your mouth (because she was really happy).
It should be “It LOOKS AS IF you had slept with a hanger in your mouth”, shouldn’t it?
Cheers mate! :-)

Wednesday, December 3rd 2014

Adam, you’re the best teacher ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monday, December 8th 2014

Adam, a question. I was in England and I heard
a teacher saying: ” I very much fancy you.”

Is it a British thing or is it snobish?

I’d very much like to know your opinion about
this.

Monday, December 8th 2014

Dear Adam,
Thank you your answer. Great honor for me to learn from a native english man.
Unfortunately I don’t understand the different the “look like” and the “look alike” in using and and How can I comprehend the difference between “as if ” and “as though”. I have a last question too: Why do we use “was” verb after as though and why not rather the “were”?

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

Dear Adam,

One of my question was what is the different of meaning between “look like” and look alike” and luckily I’ve understood it. Thank You your lecture about it. Please your explain about my two last questions: different between as if and as though (Could you show more example about it?) and about use of verbs: “was and were” in this case. Thank you your help I very appreciate your work. It is very useful topic for the people!!

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

Friday, December 12th 2014

Thanks Adam. I like your short explanation below the questions.

Tuesday, December 23rd 2014

Thanks Adam!!!

Wednesday, March 25th 2015

Thanks!

Tuesday, March 31st 2015

Hello Adam.
Can you explain “look like” and “look alike” clearly?
At question 3, I chose “look alike” but it’s incorrect.

Monday, April 6th 2015

Very difficult lesson. Too hard to my mind

Monday, April 6th 2015

I need more practice. Where can i take more tests

Monday, April 6th 2015

Sir I do not understand quiz question no. 4 please you can explain this sentence how it refers look alike = be similar

Saturday, May 2nd 2015

Hi Adam.
If I wanted to use the expression”look as if” in the past,how would I use it?
For instance:
-It looked as if it were to rain
-It looked as if it had been raining
For me, both of them are correct. The first one means that something in the past makes you think that it was about to rain(maybe clouds were gray). And the second one means that there were some evidences that make you think that it had been rainig(maybe the streets were wet).Could you clarify that, please?

Saturday, July 25th 2015

You can say looks as if it is going. Just keep in mind that technically you should use was/were, not as past tense, but rather as a subjunctive
Hello sir could you please explain where can we use was/were besides past tense like here you just used it for future

Tuesday, August 4th 2015

Hi Adam!thank you for this lesson, it’s been really useful!I have just started watching videos and I am a bit confused about how you used was/were: “It looks as if it was/were going to rain”. I used to think that “were” was incorrect as the subject “it” is singular. Would you mind to explain it: Thanks a lot!

Wednesday, August 12th 2015

Hey Adam. Thank you so much for this lesson. It’s so useful for me. Sometimes I don’t catch you. Please could you more slowly speaking. Thank you again :)

Tuesday, September 1st 2015

Adam, thanks for clarifying this issue. Although I thought you would dive a little in the use of “look like”. Is it correct to say “I look like more my father than my mother”, or do I have to use “I look more like my father than my mother”? Thanks in advance.

Thursday, September 3rd 2015

    Hi Vitor, I think it should be the 2nd option:
    I look more like my father..

    Friday, October 2nd 2015

thank u so much Adam
I have a problem , I could understand every thing in English but I can not speak English I know more than 1000 English words .
what the wrong with me???? :(

Sunday, September 6th 2015

Thank you.

Thursday, September 17th 2015

Hi I scored 7/10. Didn’t choose ‘as though’ at all. I came upon this actually while looking for the use of ‘look/looks’ to describe appearance.
Eg. – The change in her look/looks?
I find instances where both are being used.

Friday, October 2nd 2015

i got 5 what a shame ,i never got before this score since i have been watching engvid and i took this test while i’m in dozing mood,probably that is the main reason i think.my aim to became a good native speaker like you…
