:D I got 100 :D Thank you very much for your class :D very useful !!!!!

Thursday, September 11th 2014

    Well, I don’t really know what to say, your lesson left me speecheless.

    Learning vocabulary is not just -as far as I can see- a matter of knowing the meaning of a word.

    In this lesson you showed us the importance of word context (knowing cultural aspects and different word uses not to mention their regional variations).

    Well-designed quiz!!!

    Just out of curisity Mr. Benn, how long does it take you -on average- to develop your quizes?

    Have a great weekend!!!

      Hi Regino,

      It depends. I actually find the grammar lessons easier to create than vocab lessons. IELTS ones are difficult. It can be anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

7/10 Thanks adam

Thursday, September 11th 2014

Thank you Adam. Very nice lesson. I’m new here. :D I got 100 :D Disaster is my focus on my study ;) Could you please teach us how to use “rather” in a sentence? I’m still confused of using “rather”. Thank you

Thursday, September 11th 2014

    Hi adi,

    There are many uses of the word ‘rather’. I can tell you about the one that i know.

    We use rather, to show our ‘preference’ in a particular matter.

    For example – If you told me to do my homework, i’d say, “I’d rather watch TV”. This means – I would prefer watching TV, over ‘doing’ my homework.

    Another example for you – If my mother offers me an ice-cream, i could say, “No thanks! I’d rather have a chocolate”. Meaning – I would choose to eat a chocolate instead of choosing to eat an ice-cream. My preference – ‘chocolate’

    Hope it helped

      Sunday, September 14th 2014

        Happy to help! Welcome to EngVid :)

        Sunday, September 14th 2014

    Hi Adi,

    Abhi gave a good example, as usual. I’ll give you another meaning: rather can be used similarly to ‘instead’.

    e.g.: She didn’t go to Florida as she had planned, but rather to New York, where she met up with friends.

    There are a couple of other uses, but hey are rarely used anymore and are very formal. These two should do the trick.

    Friday, September 26th 2014

Thanks, teacher! In my opinion, all people of the world like to talk about the weather, mostly in the elevators rs

Thursday, September 11th 2014

    Sure! me too!!

    Friday, September 12th 2014

    Haha, and when we have nothing to say, or to start a conversation! Agree with you,Lucas.

    Tuesday, September 16th 2014

      For sure kkk
      Lorena, let me ask you something. Do you use Skype to practice English?

      Tuesday, September 16th 2014

        Yes Lucas, I don’t have so much time to stay online, but sometimes I use it.

        Tuesday, September 23rd 2014

Very nice lesson, Adam! You are a great teacher!

Thursday, September 11th 2014

Good lesson! Thanks Adam!

Thursday, September 11th 2014

So good!

Thursday, September 11th 2014

9 correct out of 10 :) Speaking to volcanic eruption,I remind Shimabara Fugendake. It occurred when I worked in my hometown (Shimabara peninsula) :( But I and my family were safe. Speaking to earthquacke and tsunami, I remind Fukushima. I was shocked when the strong earthquacke occurred. Thank you for your great lesson, Adam. Helpful :)

Thursday, September 11th 2014

    Hi Mr.Happy04
    I wonder if I can talk toyou about your country and culture which I like very much and I have many questions about your behaviors, respect for nature, diversity of arts….please can you answer me?

    Friday, September 12th 2014

      Hi Nabilati :) I wonder if I can answer your question…but what’s your question? Answering question will be good study for me :)

      Saturday, September 13th 2014

        Thanks a lot Happy04,Let’s start by these questions:how your parents raise you?: how do they do or tell you about respecting old people, respecting your parents, nature, teachers, is it said repetitively or at school too?I watch NHK World and I like some of the programms but still hungry to know about you!!I watch your cartoons too till now and I want really my poeple and country to become like you or at least, for now, understand how you save your costms, old buildings,..the majority of you.I would be very gratefull if you help me know these points.Thanls a lot

        Monday, September 15th 2014

        And sorry for the time you spend in hospital, I read your profile, I thought you were a man, but nice to know that you’re a mom!:)

        Monday, September 15th 2014

          My icon looked like man, didn’t it? No problem :D
          Well…I think I have learnt about custom and respecting old people, nature, parents etc…from schools, companies I worked, TV news and friends repetitively and gradually. I remind my parents (especially mother) have worried about money and body. My answer is to be to the point for you? Sorry if I misunderstand your question…and my English is poor.

          Monday, September 15th 2014

          Hi Nabilati,

          If you really want to understand the Japanese, I recommend a book called The Anatomy of Dependence, by Takeo Doi. The Japanese are a very interesting people. I lived in Japan for 6 years and still have many questions :)

          Friday, September 26th 2014

    Dear HappyO4

    I respect your country and its people a lot! In my country India, we are always given the example of Japan, whenever we are given a lesson on discipline :)

    best regards
    abhi

    Saturday, September 13th 2014

      Hi abhi :)
      TV shows say Japanese technology and lessons on discipline are of use as a reference in all of the world. Honest to say, they haven’t hit me yet. But I should be proud of Japan more, should I. Thank you for your reply :)

      Saturday, September 13th 2014

        Yes HappyO4, you have good reasons to be proud of Japan :) In fact we all do :)

        Sunday, September 14th 2014

    Hi Happy,

    I experienced some earthquakes in Japan as well. It was fun the first few times, but then I started to realize how dangerous it can be.

    Friday, September 26th 2014

      Hi Adam :) Thank you for your replies and recommend the book. I would like to read it someday :) BTW When earthquakes occurred, I stopped like stone because of…maybe panic the first few times. And when I felt stronger earthquakes like 3/11 (I forgot the year), I hid under the table wishing it would stopped soon.

      Friday, September 26th 2014

I got 9/10. I thought the cancelation of the flights was due to a squall, but it was a VOLCANIC ERUPTION. Iceland is a country, haha! Duh! There’s a capital letter. That was a great lesson, Adam! Thank you very much!

Thursday, September 11th 2014

It doesn’t have any of those phenomenons here in Brazil, I guess. It snows in the South, but I never saw it. I live in Southeast. My dad saw a lot of typhoons, he lives in Hamamatsu, Japan.

Thursday, September 11th 2014

    Yeah,here in Brazil we have so much sun. But in the south area,it snows in the winter. I think we’re lucky to live far way from these natural disasters!

    Tuesday, September 16th 2014

Hey, Adam, could you do a lesson on transitive and intransitive verb? I barely know in Portuguese, haha, but I’d like to know it better in English. Thanks a bunch! ;D I’m done here. :D

Thursday, September 11th 2014

    Hi Renata,

    I’ll get on it. :)

    Friday, September 26th 2014

    Hi. Retana
    I’m sorry when asked you this. What do you mean “bunch”, when you say: ” Thanks a bunch”. I just don’t understand it

    Wednesday, October 15th 2014

Thanks Adam. I got 10/10. I’m from Indonesia. There was a Tsunami happened here in 2004.
Btw, it’s should be “avalanche” not “avalance”. I’ve checked my dictionary :)

Thursday, September 11th 2014

    Absolutely right, Erikaris. That was a typo on my part. Good eye. :)

    Friday, September 26th 2014

I GOT 100, thank you Adam

Friday, September 12th 2014

10/10

Friday, September 12th 2014

Hi, Adam! Thank you for the very useful lesson.
In Japan, we have a lot of heavy rain nowadays. And then in Hiroshima, many people died because of mudslide.
We have a not few typhoon during summer to autumn. And at the same time, we’re afflicted by earthquake almost everyday.
Why are we living in such a country that have a lot of disasters?lol It’s just a kidding. But then we have very beautiful place to visit such as Mt. Fuji, Nikko, and more!
I envy climate of Canada. Because it seems to not too hot during summer. But if I visit Canada during winter, I would suffer its massive coldness. Because I get cold very easily.

Thank you.

Friday, September 12th 2014

    Hi Juneriver,

    I lived in Japan 6 years. I used to ask that same question ;)

    Friday, September 26th 2014

Thank you Adam , very useful lesson .

Friday, September 12th 2014

I got 10/10 thanks Adam

Friday, September 12th 2014

10/10. Very well explained, speaking in terms of definitions and meanings. By the way at the same time you Adam were recording this video lesson, in Iceland occurs another volcano eruption, this time was the Bardarbunga (strange name for a Volcano, isn’t it ?) BARDARBUUUUNGA.

Friday, September 12th 2014

Thank you Adam.I am very appreciate your help. The very awesome teaching. God bless you.

Friday, September 12th 2014

The lesson is perfect. Thank you, Adam.

Friday, September 12th 2014

Here in Reunion Island (Indian Ocean) we have cyclones every summer, volcano eruptions sometimes, and low earthquakes (due to the volcano activity). No tsunami till now, but it happened we got very strong swells…

Friday, September 12th 2014

I got 100 point. Adam can explain very well. I will try to plactice English anymore.

Friday, September 12th 2014

Thanks, Mr. Adam. That was so interesting, but what is the difference between magma, ashes and lava?

Friday, September 12th 2014

    Hello Mr. Salem

    Magma and Lava, both are the same thing. The names depend on the location of the molten rocks. When it is in the interior of the earth. But when ‘Magma’ comes out of the volcano, it is called ‘Lava’. ‘Ashes’ are the solid black remains that are left behind after you burn something, for example – a paper.
    hope it helped,
    regards
    abhi

    Saturday, September 13th 2014

      So basically, we call the molten rocks, ‘Magma’, when they are in the interior of the earth, and ‘Lava’, when they come out of the volcano.

      Saturday, September 13th 2014

    Hi Mr. Salem,

    Abhi gave an excellent answer. I would only add an example of ashes. When someone smokes a cigarette, they drop ashes on the ground.

    Hope that helps.

    Friday, September 26th 2014

Here in Brazil we are about to face another big disaster, with the arrival of the presidential elections … And, unfortunately, few people will not suffer from this major storm!

      Saturday, September 13th 2014

    Hi Tejalkk,

    It’s nice to see that you want to go to visit Canada. A TIP :- Don’t forget to get a ride on the Rocky Mountaineer train journey. It will leave a lasting impression!
    regards
    abhi

    Saturday, September 13th 2014

      Hi abhi,
      As far as I know Canada’s snowfall is incomparable with snowfall in India.I live in Mumbai where there is no snowfall :-( I am bit upset for that but anyways i can compensate it by going to canada as it would be totally different and awesome as compare to snowfall in India :-)
      I read out your comment,it seems that you had been to Canada several times..i am just kidding you ;-)
      Well,thanks a lot abhi for suggesting me some tips regarding my canada trip.I will definitely try out your trip whenever i go to Canada.thank you again.
      Regards,
      TEJALKK.

      Monday, September 15th 2014

        yeah sure, tejalkk :)

        Wednesday, September 17th 2014

I wanted to write MUMBAI instead of India in earlier comment..Sorry..

Friday, September 12th 2014

What a luck that in Poland there are no such bad climate events like that.
As a matter of fact there are same small flood and other events but not such catastrophic in the effects.

greetings to everyone!!!

Friday, September 12th 2014

Thanks Adam. My district has considerably suitable climate.

    Friday, September 12th 2014

Yeah! I just got 100 points thank for useful subject of weather.

Friday, September 12th 2014

Hi Adam,
are you sure that the symbols of the cold and warm front are correct?? The red line, warm front, should have round bulges and the blue line should be spiky. But it was a very good and understandable lesson, thank you! :)

Friday, September 12th 2014

    Hi Stefan,

    You are right. I mixed them up. semi-circles, like waves, for heat wave. triangles, like icicles, for cold front.

    Good job. I’ll let everyone know at the end of the comments.

    :)

Thanks Adam. I’ve really sppreciated this lesson:simple,clear, useful.
You are a great teacher.

Friday, September 12th 2014

I’ve got 10/10 :) Thanks a lot Adam!

Friday, September 12th 2014

What a wonderful lesson Adam. Here in Brazil I never heard many of this terms. (In Brasil we don’t have snow, earthquakes, tornados, volcanos, tsunamis) That was very interesting to hear about all this events that I personaly only knew watching the news. Here we have floods at region south and droughts at the north. Here in São Paulo (southeast of Brazil) we’re living for the first time a critical situation. Our water reservatories are very very low. We are 12 millions of people at the metropolis and more than 20 millions with the closest cities around. We’re almost praying for rain drops. I mean for a great storm to refuel our reservatories.

Friday, September 12th 2014

    Here in Brazil, in my turn, I’ve listened to lots of news about snow, earthquakes, tornadoes, vocanos, tsunamis, etc but they are not common in the our routine. In the central part, sometimes, it occurs earthquakes, and in São Joaquim City, you can see frequently icestorms and even snowfall.

    Friday, September 12th 2014

      I know Edinho. But we cannot compare the earthquakes that we experience here to a real earthquake, like in Japan or Chile. Our country lies inside a big tectonic plate. What we feel here it’s just a distant reflex of some real seismic shaking. The frosty that rarely happens in the south of Brazil it’s ‘nothing’ compare to the north of Canada. That’s more or less what I tried to expose. Our weather is sunny and hot almost 70% of the year. I never experienced a negative temperature. In Sao Paulo the worst weather I experienced was 4 ºC. That was the coldest winter I ever lived.

      Friday, September 12th 2014

Thank you, Adam! I didn’t know about differencies between tornado, hurricane and cyclone.

Friday, September 12th 2014

I learnt a lot of vocabulary with this lesson! =) I didn’t know that hurricane, typhoon and the others are the same thing but in different places. Good to know!
In my country (Brazil), we haven’t snow, or typhoons, or hurricanes (I don’t remember what happens in the South America hehehe), but we have drought (even having a lot of rivers) and floods.

Friday, September 12th 2014

    Brazil is a continental country…

    Friday, September 12th 2014

    better… It’s a enormous, large country and sometimes we cannot know it enough!

    Friday, September 12th 2014

      But I didn’t speaksomething wrong?

      Monday, September 15th 2014

        Nope, all good Carol :)

        Friday, September 26th 2014

        It’s because we have snow here in Brazil, specially in SC, and we had a cyclone called Catarina, 10 years ago.

        Sunday, October 26th 2014

Very good class Teacher. Congratulations.

Friday, September 12th 2014

:)

Friday, September 12th 2014

Thanks for this wonderful lesson, dear teacher Adam. I live in State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and we are now suffering from a severe drought, the worst I’ve ever seen!

Friday, September 12th 2014

Good Class, Teacher! Just a little comment: the representation of the cold front and the hot waves is wrong. The colors are right. But the cold front is showed as triangles and the hot wave is showed as semicircles.
Congratulations for your facility in teach English and Meteorology. You have showed a very good knowledge about this subject. Thanks!

Friday, September 12th 2014

    Hi Ruda,

    You are right. I mixed them up. semi-circles, like waves, for heat wave. triangles, like icicles, for cold front.

    Good job. I’ll let everyone know at the end of the comments.

    :)

    Friday, September 26th 2014

I love your videos, thanks :D

Friday, September 12th 2014

10/10! A pretty easy to follow lesson. Thank you, Adam.

I live in Teresópolis, and we had a terrible natural disaster here a few years ago;
a heavy storm accompanied by mudslide. Lots of people died, it was a really sad event.

Thank you Adam for the very intersting lesson. Best greetings from Germany.

Saturday, September 13th 2014

Thank you very much for the lesson! Very useful information.
I remember a day,long time ago,in March 1977.I was a child at that time, living in a small town, with my parents.There was in the evening when the earth began to quake.We took cover under a doorframe.I was hearing the walls creaking, crackling, everything around was shaking.It was a dreadful experience.
Fortunately for me,the earthquake wasn’t so strong in my town, so our house only got some cracks in the walls. But in our capital, Bucharest, a lot of buildings fell down, and a lot of people died.

Saturday, September 13th 2014

    Wow, that sounds terrifying! I’m glad you were OK.

oh Adam really u the best thanks alot your lessons helped me alot ..dear Adam would u teach me about transcripton pls??really Iam suffering from phonetics !simply it make me sad !!

Saturday, September 13th 2014

    Hi Haboosh,

    I’m sorry, I’m not sure what you mean. Do you want to learn how to transcribe what you hear? English phonetics is a little strange. You have to write down what you hear as you hear it; then, check the dictionary. Once your spelling is good, it will be much easier to transcribe things.

    Is this what you had in mind?

    Friday, September 26th 2014

Thank you so much :)

Sunday, September 14th 2014

Sunday, September 14th 2014

THank you Adam, it’s a nice class! But I think the symbol’s colors of the “heat wave” and “cold front” are just opposite.

Sunday, September 14th 2014

    Red hami-circle represents to “heat wave”, and the blue tri-angle represents to “cold front”.

    Sunday, September 14th 2014

    Hi Fuchen,

    You are right. I mixed them up. semi-circles, like waves, for heat wave. triangles, like icicles, for cold front.

    Good job. I’ll let everyone know at the end of the comments.

    :)

    Friday, September 26th 2014

Hi Adam I have a question again. I hope you or Abhi will help me again. What is the meaning this sentence: your jaw is scraping the floor.

Sunday, September 14th 2014

    yani diyorki sana bi vururum bi de yer vurur diyo. çeneni yerden toplarsın diyo. sanki.

    Monday, September 15th 2014

    Hi cerenacar

    Sorry for the delay. Although i think ecankul has answered your question but i am not sure about it because it is not in English.

    ‘scrape the jaw off the floor’, is an expression. This means that you were so surprised on seeing something, that your jaw dropped a long way down in astonishment, and you had to scrape it up!

    I could also mean, ‘injuring’ your teeth when you fell down hard against the floor.

    But i prefer the first meaning. Do let us know if you are still confused.

    regards
    abhi

    Wednesday, September 17th 2014

    Hi Cerenacar,

    Abhi explained it well. Think of cartoons you’ve seen where the character is so surprised or shocked that the lower part of the face (lower mouth and chin) drops to the floor.

    :)

    Friday, September 26th 2014

Thank you, Adam! Very useful lesson.In my coutry people say:”If you have nothing to say, speak about weather”

Sunday, September 14th 2014

    Hi Kiyara,

    I think that’s a global thing ;)

    Friday, September 26th 2014

It was a dream lesson. Thanks Adam.we had a huge earthquake in istanbul on 17 august 1999 , at 3:02 a.m local time. It was measured 7.4
Killed more than 17.000 people. I was in Istanbul that time. I felt it . I woke up then I took one of my twins but I didn’t other. One who I took didn’t wake up otherwise one who I didn’t take woke up then he said to me ” do not shake my bed”

Sunday, September 14th 2014

Thank you mr.Adam for this lesson.

Sunday, September 14th 2014

Dear Adam,
Hi…hope everything goes well around you.

There’s a grammar ? by me, would you mind 2 lend me a helping hand pls ?!!

“two other books” o “other two books” o “both” r right ?

Tnx in advance,
fatiima!

Sunday, September 14th 2014

    Hi Fatiima,

    I think it depends on the structure of the sentence.

    It could be, “Do check out the ‘TWO OTHER BOOKS’ of mine” or “Do check out my OTHER TWO BOOKS”. Adam sir will be able to give the correct explanation :)

      lol :D sorry. I typed ‘abhi’ twice :)

      Wednesday, September 17th 2014

        tnx.

        Friday, September 19th 2014

        It’s all good )

        Friday, September 26th 2014

    Hi Fatima,

    As Abhi said, it depends on the context. And yes, both can be correct.

    The professor recommended this book, but there are two other books that I think will be useful for you.( meaning other than this one)

    The professor recommended three books. This one is the best, but the other two books can be useful as well. (The other two of the three mentioned)

    Does this help?

    Friday, September 26th 2014

      1st thing 1st, a warm hi & thanks dear Adam…

      Tell you the truth, in the English class of mine with kids, as a game, I hide some flash cards around the class, then I ask them to find & say the names of the pictures on the flash cards. After finding some by them, I say for instance : just 2 other flash cards are remained, you have find 2 other flash cards. This is the exact situation of my ? .

      Is my ? right in this position?!!? “2 other flash cards” are remained.

      Many thanks dear professor.
      Kind Regards,
      fatiima!

      Tuesday, September 30th 2014

        Oh sorry…
        You have to find 2 other…

        Friday, October 10th 2014

          Hi Fatima,

          You have to say:

          Ok, there are still 2 cards. Find the other two cards.

          Or:
          there are two more cards. Find the two cards.

          :)

          If you told them there were 5 cards and they found 3, then they would have to find the other 2.

          Monday, October 13th 2014

          How can I thank you,dear friendly Adam ??!!!

          Really nice of you.
          Regards,
          fatiima!

Tuesday, September 16th 2014

Great lesson! I loved to study a geography few years ago. Your lesson reminded me a lot of knowledge!

Tuesday, September 16th 2014

Thanks a lot for this lesson! I learned too much from it.

Tuesday, September 16th 2014

Hi Adam, thank you Adam very nice lesson. could you plz tell me what does it mean?. “I can’t stand sweet potatoes, but I manage to force them down just to keep from making a scene”. I dont understand the meaning of “just to keep from making sense”.

Tuesday, September 16th 2014

    Hi Fari

    ‘To create a scene’ means ‘to cause public disturbance’. For example, if two people start fighting on the street, they will create a scene.

    If you and your family are having dinner and suddenly you start moaning and behaving like kids, just because you don’t like sweet potatoes, you will create a scene.

    Now you want to know what ‘just to keep from making a scene’ means, right?

    It means, “Just to ‘AVOID’ making a scene”.

    ‘to keep from’ means ‘to AVOID’ :)

    AGAIN! In simple words, the sentence means, “I don’t like sweet potatoes but I still force them down my ‘food pipe’ just to AVOID creating public disturbance”

    do let us know if you still have any confusion.

    regards
    abhi

    Wednesday, September 17th 2014

    Hi Fari,

    Abhi gave a definitive answer. I’ll just add one more note: making a scene also suggests attracting too much unwanted attention.

    Friday, September 26th 2014

wow, i got 10/10. But I’m still confuse all those words. Hope i can remember it and use it in real :):)

Hi Adam. I am wanting to do exchange in the Canadá. So, i would like to know about good exchange schools in there. Thanks for help, I hope.

Saturday, September 20th 2014

    Hi John,

    To be honest, I don’t deal with exchange schools, so can’t make a good recommendation. Your school should have a list of these though. Have you discussed this with them?

    Friday, September 26th 2014

      Hi Adam. They said about BLI school in Montreal. Do you know? I’m waiting study 6 months there.

      Friday, September 26th 2014

        I don’t know it, bu the site looks nice :)I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. As long as they have students, it’ll be good for you.

Tuesday, September 23rd 2014

Sir. What is the different b/w mudslide and landslide?

Wednesday, September 24th 2014

    Hi Syedjavad,

    A landslide usually occurs on a slope (side of mountain or hill) and can include rocks and trees and anything else. A mudslide can move along flatter land and is really just mud (or debris) that flows along a channel (like a river).

    Does this help?

    Friday, September 26th 2014

Thank you so much, Adam !!! :)
I got 10/10 after your lesson
I had learned all your lectures and my English skills have improved day by day.

Hi buddy :) I like to dance in a snow squall! It’s very funny tasting the snow and having it all around your body and then became a snow man/snow girl ! ;) hahahaha

Friday, September 26th 2014

    If you lie on the grass that is covered by snow and move your arms and legs in their arches, when you stand up, you will leave a snow angel on the ground :)

    Friday, September 26th 2014

Great job everyone.

A couple of notes:

A few of you have noticed that I made a mistake in the lesson – for a heat wave, the line is red with semi-circles (look like waves). For a cold front, the line is blue with triangles (look like icicles).

Also. avalanche with ‘h’, not avalance.

Good eyes guys :)

Friday, September 26th 2014

    :) Thanks Adam! Avalanche :)
