Tuesday, June 11th 2013

    very difficult lesson

    Thursday, June 13th 2013

      It’s quite difficult! Thanks Engvid.com so much!

      Saturday, June 15th 2013

      Thank you teacher! Ihave learned a lot!

      Saturday, August 24th 2013

    I got 9/10.It is a useful and helpful lesson with great teaching.

    Wednesday, June 19th 2013

      Hi,Mr.Adam.Can you show the explanations after quizzes.For instance, i just finished my quiz,i made an error on the first question.My answer is ‘so’.I am a bit confusing why it should be used in this case.

      Wednesday, June 19th 2013

        Hi Avonsim,

        yes, future quizzes will have explanations.

        In question one you need to reach a conclusion baswd on the information in the first sentence. This is a business situation that needs a little more formal English which is why we don’t use ‘so’ here. Another reason is that to use ‘so’, we would have to begin the clause with it. ‘so’ can’t be put mid-sentence. When you put ‘so’ directly in front of a verb it becomes an adverb of intensity, such as “I love Hawaii so much.”

        ‘Therefore’ is therefore the correct answer.

        I hope that helps.

        Monday, June 24th 2013

          Thank you so much,Mr Adam.You did wondersul lessons therefore I recommended you to all my classmates.The whole class likes you very much.

          Wednesday, July 3rd 2013

          Hello teacher, you told above that so can’t be put mid-sentence, but in the vídeo it was put. Could you explain that.

          Tuesday, January 3rd 2017

Very good Adam! Thanks!8/10 quiz!

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

    I got 8/10 too)

    Tuesday, June 11th 2013

      Adam, you are very dangerous teacher – you grade the TOEFL !!! and I wonder how tough your quiz is!!I only got 6.help me GOD

      Thursday, June 13th 2013

        hahha,so cute comment~

        Wednesday, July 3rd 2013

          Yes, I’ve been thinking about this point. If people like Adam mark IELTS, I would start studying all the time here at Engvid. These clues look dumbs, but at the end because of them we could lose a high score.

          Wednesday, July 24th 2013

very good lesson, thank you adam, 8/10 quiz :)

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

Again an excellent lesson. Consequently, I’ll be very attentive to my sentences structures relating to transitions. If you remember, I applied a lesson on the ‘ing’ form added to verbs following the preposition ‘to’ so I can get a better English.

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

    good stuff :)

    Monday, June 24th 2013

Thank’s a lot!

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

Awesome lesson plz make a video about punctuation

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

    Working on it :)

    Monday, June 24th 2013

Thank you for the lesson Mr. Adam! But I have a question. Aren’t those two phrases “too demanding” and “so many” informal? In the last example, the sentence,”The job was too demanding so many people quit,” can we write the sentence like this in an essay?

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

    Hi Felix,

    You can use these in an essay, though there are more formal ways to say it, such as ‘the job was overly taxing leading many to resign.’ However, when you need sentence variety in an essay, the original can be used as well. It is not necessarily casual, just less formal.

    Does that help?

    Monday, June 24th 2013

Thanks Adam. I’ve got 8/10

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

the word hence is derived from the arabic word “من هنا” which is read like mn huna =hence

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

    Thanks Aiman. Interesting.

    Monday, June 24th 2013

Adam,Thanks very much, I’ve 5/10 quiz

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

Well…. I think it’s a little bit difficult …. not really clear for me I’ve mixed up the 2nd question with therefore than 4th question with consequently then the 8th with therefore :(

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

Hey Adam
I did not get it (this video).Therefore I’ll watch it agaian.
If it is wrong using therefore here then
I really dont undersant this video lol .

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

    Hi oguz,

    Not wrong, but a simple ‘so’ would have been ok.:)

    Monday, June 24th 2013

That class was to too difficult, teacher. But the consequence was I watched it a couple of times, then I did 10/10 in the quizz, and, finally, as a result, I said: Yes, I did!

Thanks, your class have been very, very interesting and useful!

See you.

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

    I know… I told about my quiz score 10/10 and, hence, I will seem arrogant.

    Wednesday, June 12th 2013

      Nope. You will seem proud, as you should be :)

      Monday, June 24th 2013

Thanks Adam. I really need these type of lessons.

Wednesday, June 12th 2013


    Thursday, June 13th 2013

      Interesting! You’re asking me to teach you English! You should ask the EngVid teachers not me! I am a student just like many others.

      Thursday, June 13th 2013

        i dont about rules and condition,iam new for this.when i see you ,i think you help me.but keep help me in english.pleaase samira.

        Thursday, June 13th 2013

        you explained (raw deal)for someone here in the site…. you look like smart teacher, you are lucky

        Thursday, June 13th 2013

Great lesson!!
I know this does not relate to the lesson but what is the differences between implicit and explicit? Thank you so much :)

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

    They are opposites! “Implicit” means implied, hinted at. “Explicit” means something said outright.

    “Explicit” is also used to describe offensive material, like swearing or nudity, in a book, movie, etc.

    Thursday, June 13th 2013

It was a really good lesson, Adam. Thanks. Got 9/10 in quiz. :D

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

Thanks Adam.

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

thank you so much:) i got 7/10 marks.

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

All instructor are good but according to me Mr. Alex is superb bcoz he clears doubt very well in short example.

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

Thank you very much, Adam. Finally, I have found out the differences between them.
There are lots of questions, though. For instance, what about words “regardless”, “nevertheless, “however”? They are also to show some contrast, are they not? How can we use them in the right way?
And besides, it would be interesting to learn about words as “nonetheless” and “notwithstanding”. This is not just a question of curiosity to me. At work we sometimes receive letters of official character containing such words. As I understand, all of them are old-fashioned. I do not use them even formally, but sometimes I wonder, if they are appropriate for formal letters or speeches. How is it actually? I have no one to help me to figure this out.

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

    Excuse me for an inadvertency, I made a mistake. I was writting that question above to the topic on “though, although, even though, despite, in spite of”, actually.

    Friday, June 14th 2013

      Hi Denis,

      No worries. :)

      I make the lessons with one topic in mind at a time. The words you mentioned are used to show contrast, but in a slightly different way. i will make lessons about them as well, but for now, these words are used to first show concession, that is, that I agree with what was said…but…there is another perspective to look at.
      The equipment is very expensive. Nevertheless, we need it.

      Does that help?

      Monday, June 24th 2013

        Thank you very much, Adam! I got it.

        Monday, July 1st 2013

Cool, thanks! Very useful! ))

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

Hello teacher, it was a great lesson, and I think you should make more lessons on transitions, even though I’m not going to take the IELTS test I found this lesson very useful and interesting.

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

Thank you Adam!
It was a great lesson.

PS: I promise that I will never say: “Hence! ” :P

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

And yet, you’ve raised the bar!

Nice lesson and quite useful, butty.

See you soon. =)

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

thanks.got 7/10

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

Thanks Adam excellent

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

Dear Adam:

As I have already told you, I enjoy watching the EngVid.com videos; they are very resourceful and very powerful for both students and teachers.

When you write “The job was too demanding, so many people quit”, you do not write any comma after the first clause. I have always understood that when “so” has a meaning similar to “therefore”, it should be preceded by one. In sentences like “They had given me money so I could go shopping all day”, instead, in which “so” means “in order to” – although it is not grammatically used in the same way, no comma is needed. I might have been wrong, and that being the case, I would like to learn now.

Please get back to me with an answer as soon as you possibly can; I certainly look forward to hearing from you.

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

    Hi Ernesto,

    Generally, you’re right. However, keep in mind that rules shouldn’t be held onto too tightly.
    Consider this:
    The job was too demanding. So many people quit.
    In the second sentence, ‘so’ is understood as an adverb of intensity (so many). Sometimes you need to leave out or add a comma so as not to allow for a confusion. If someone reads the sentence with the so as adverb rather than transition, then they will see a run-on sentence. By leaving the comma out you can get rid of this problem.

    This is more a matter of choice than hard rule. If you add the comma,however, the sentence is correct and the meaning should be understood.

    Does that help?

    Monday, June 24th 2013

Oh, not bad…Got 8 correct! Many thanks, Adam!

Wednesday, June 12th 2013


    Thursday, June 13th 2013

      But EngVid is already the right place for you to learn English! Keep watching the videos and you’ll improve your English for sure!

      Thursday, June 13th 2013

thank u )))) can we use ” for that ” ?)

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

    Hi Sami,

    Can you give me an example?

    Monday, June 24th 2013

Hi Adam.
Does the rules that you’ve just explaint work for the first quizz? You have said that ”THEREFORE” are rather used between comas or starting a clause and in that case none are applied.
I’m lost something, did I ?

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

    Hi Adam.
    Do the rules that you’ve just explaint work for the first quiz? You have said that ”THEREFORE” are rather used between comas or when starting a clause to show conclusion,however,in that case none were applied.
    I’m lost something, did I ?

    Wednesday, June 12th 2013

      This comment section doesn’t allow correct mistakes as you can see mine.

      (Am I lost something, didn’t I?

      Wednesday, June 12th 2013

      Hi Larner,

      In the first question we are using it like an adverb. I could add the commas, but it’s not always necessary– it depends more on placement. If I wrote ‘It is recommended, therefore, that workshops…’ then I would have to use it because it is more of an interjection.

      Does that help?

      Monday, June 24th 2013

Great Class, Adam! I got 8 correct out of 10!

Best wishes for you (:

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

Thanks so much Adam !!! Great job !!!

Wednesday, June 12th 2013

Hi Adam,it is very easy to confuse the question(therefor,thus,consequently,so)please explain each answer.

Thursday, June 13th 2013

    Hi Cuong ta,

    Is there any specific question? Future quizzes will include explanations.

    Monday, June 24th 2013

Thursday, June 13th 2013

Nice lesson Adam. I’ve got 9/10 but I’m still not very confident about it; consequently, I’ll keep on this matter for a while.

Thanks a lot.

    Hi, Jordhan. I’m not an English teacher, but I’m studying hard and maybe we can help each other. Mail me and tell me more about what you need. (denyclass@yahoo.com.br) I guess we can be good friends!

    Friday, June 14th 2013

Very useful as all the engvid lessons, I really appreciate. Thanks a lot!

Thursday, June 13th 2013

7/10 … thanks

Friday, June 14th 2013

I often use “thereof” in my emails – it would fit in this lesson too. Tkx!

Friday, June 14th 2013

Thanks Adam :) Could you please do a lesson for “However, Nevertheless etc.?

Saturday, June 15th 2013

    will do ;)

    Monday, June 24th 2013

    Very useful.Thank you very much.Please do it with more examples to make it clear. especially MOREOVER and NEVERTHELESS.
    Thank you

    Friday, September 13th 2013

thanks for your qualified lessons, i got 9/10 . thanks.

Saturday, June 15th 2013

Thanks Adam.

Saturday, June 15th 2013

This lesson was a bit confusing to me. I didnt get it very well.

Sunday, June 16th 2013

Adam, could you make a vid about the difference between “have”, “got and “have got”? I’m wondering if I should say “I have a problem” or “I got a problem”, etc.

I also have a question about “no” and “not”. I asked you once about the difference between “I’m not a lord” and “I’m no lord”. And now I have two other examples that have “no”, and I started to wonder what is the rule and when to use “no” or “not”. The examples:

“it’s no surprise that things gotten worse”
“you are no good”

Is there any rule, or just when “no” is used, we do not use “a” or “an”. So, the lines would be rewritten to:

“it’s not a surprise that things gotten worse”
“you are not good” — I’m not sure, but both, the previous one and this one, appear to be good, isn’t it.

Sunday, June 16th 2013

    Hi Morfik,

    Have and have got are pretty much the same; the former is American, the latter British (in terms of common usage). Got is bad American English.

    As for no/not here is a lesson by James.

    My take:
    No is used with a noun to mean ‘not any’. It is usually more emphatic and is used more colloquially.
    Not is simply the negation of something.
    So… you’re not good, means you’re bad, or just that good cannot be used to describe you. You’re no good, means you are useless.

    “I’m not a lord” and “I’m no lord”.
    the first states a fact about my situation.
    the second suggests that you can’t hold me to that expectation, or make that comparison.

    in terms of rules for usage, can’t really say there are any. it’s no surprise= it is not surprising.

    Does that help at all?

    Tuesday, June 25th 2013

      Thanks for the vid. It should be useful, but I need to watch it several times and also pay attention to how people use no/not because it’s a little bit difficult to me. Thanks for the have/have got/got explanation too — now everything is pretty clear.

      I understand the difference between “I’m not a lord” and “I’m no lord” , but I have to think about the two other examples — “no good” and “no surprise”.

      Tuesday, June 25th 2013

I got 9/10 — I failed with 10th question. I really don’t use the word. xD

Sunday, June 16th 2013

It was a very difficult lesson and I got 6 out of 10. mmmh I need practise. I’ll watch it again.

Sunday, June 16th 2013


Monday, June 17th 2013

A little difficult. Could you explain us the way to use “at”, “in” and “on”? Thank you very much :)

Monday, June 17th 2013

    Hi Fab8,

    There are a couple of lessons on that on the site. type the words into the search box and it’ll come up. If not, let me know.

    Monday, June 24th 2013

Thank you. Now I have understood the distinctions between these transitions. Yahooo!!!:D

Monday, June 17th 2013

Dear Adam,
Please could you help me in some important expressions which are usually used in IELTS task1?
These expressions are such as proportion, percentage, relatively percentage…etc
I need you to explain them with more different expressions related to them to use a wide range of vocabulary in the exam.
I have exam after two weeks and I still confuse about their meaning.
Thank you so much

Tuesday, June 18th 2013

    Hi Moutaz,

    Hope this isn’t too late, but look at Emma’s lessons. She does a good lesson on Task 1 writing.

    Monday, June 24th 2013

hair is a singular noun or plural noun?
after this we can use singular verb or plural verb?

Tuesday, June 18th 2013

    Hi Risk,

    Although you can technically count the hairs on your head, we usually refer to it as a noncountable, as is ‘my hair IS black.’

    Does that help?

    Monday, June 24th 2013

      thanx adam.

      Thursday, June 27th 2013

I’d like to know what kind of english is taught by you. Thanks!

    Hi Alex,

    I teach all levels of English, but I specialize in IELTS and TOEFL (and TOEIC and SAT verbal).

    Monday, June 24th 2013

      I wanna know, if your english is the same of United States.Is there any difference?

      Tuesday, June 25th 2013

        My English is Canadian which is a bit of a mix between British and American. Sound is more like American though.
        There are some differences, but they are subtle.

Help me please to understand in which cases I must use except,apart from,besides,but,save?

Friday, June 21st 2013

    Hi Nikara,

    Except- something that is different from the normal, or accepted rule.

    apart from- to isolate something from others

    besides- similar to apart from

    but- similar to except ( a little formal)

    save- like but (a little old-fashioned)

    Though these words are mostly interchangeable.

    I like to eat everything except for green veggies.
    I like to eat everything apart from green veggies.
    I like to eat everything besides green veggies.
    I like to eat everything but green veggies.
    I like to eat everything save for green veggies.

    Does that help?

    Monday, June 24th 2013

      Thank you so much!
      Sure that helped me but I hope you will make a video lesson about that with more examples :)

      Thanks again :)

Hi Adam

I am writing to you ask about how can I make a good grammatical questions, I often make a wrong questions.
For instance,
1. How many ways do you know people greet each other?
2. How many ways people greet each other?
3. When were you go to the park?
4. How do you assess me?
5. How is my knowledge?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Your Sincerely,

Thank you

Friday, March 14th 2014

Hi, Adam! Many thanks for your class. It was really helpful! But, as it is an extremely complex topic, I still have some doubts. Look at the following sentence. “Firstly, the player in turn has to roll the dice. Then, he moves his token according to the number taken.” Is a common mandatory or optional after ‘then’? I’d appreciate if you could help me.

Saturday, March 15th 2014

Adam, you have the extraordinary ability to not make confused the listener ..
Learning English has finally become easy and fun .. thanks for your very useful lessons and thanks to you because you really know how to teach. You are to me the best teacher ever!!!

Good Lesson! Thanks. Can you explain this sentence sructure please. I choose “so” but answer is therefore.
The survey results suggest that most of the senior staff lack motivational skills. It is _________ recommended that workshops be set up to train managers in this area.

Saturday, August 9th 2014

Whoa, what a difficult lesson to learn! But I’ve learnt a lot, thanks Adam! You’re the best

Friday, August 15th 2014

This lesson is just what i was looking for.
I still have a little problem with the difference between “Therefore” and “Consequently”.
I only got 7 out of 10 which shows that I’m not really comfortable with those words.
However, the lesson was really useful and I enjoyed it.
Thanks Adam and a big thank you to EngVid.

Wednesday, September 3rd 2014

Hi Adam, your lessons are awesome, I learned a lot from your class. And now I have a question about the fifth question, I am confusing that why I can’t use “consequently” in this sentence.

Wednesday, September 10th 2014

I got 9/10

Monday, September 22nd 2014

Hi Adam I got 5/10, I need a lot more practice.

Friday, September 26th 2014

Thanks a trillion! I’ve been knowing this website but I didn’t sign up. So, now, I’m new member. Please help me to improve my English.
Thanks again!

Saturday, September 27th 2014

Adam, first of all, thank you very much for contributing to improve our English.

I didn’t agree with the last question’s answer. It is not proper to repeat words in the same prhase. Thus, in my opinion, the best answer for that question would be “Therefore” or “Consequently”. What do you think about it?

Tuesday, September 30th 2014

Adam its a great learning experience with you.So i subscribed to your channel.Is this correct English ?

Wednesday, October 15th 2014

Thank you, Adam.

Wednesday, October 15th 2014

9/10 thanks! I should learn harder

Sunday, October 26th 2014

Could you explain,
in 7th question why we can not use thusly.In addition that question, instead of ‘consequently’ is therefore suitable for the answer?

Thank you so much Adam for the great lesson. I really appreciate your efforts. Hope you’ll teach us about punctuations.

Sunday, April 26th 2015

My result was only 6 out of ten, so it means, I didn’t much attention to the lesson, or I just don’t understand everything right.

Great lesson. Keep up the good work :) 9/10

Sunday, June 7th 2015

Thanks mr.Adam.

Lmao I got 8/10, but you have used strong words, XD!
I find some difficulties to understand all of these words I kept reading on without figuring out what the sentences are talking about XD, I understood how to use them very well, and I was paying attention on their positions like you can’t use ;thus should be like thus; , so I have used these things to answer some of the questions excluding what are the sentences talking about and answered some questions through their context as well even though I’m not good at context. anyway I really enjoyed this lesson thank you very much I appreciate that, I will take on improving my English.

Thanks mr.Adam :)

Wednesday, June 10th 2015

Monday, July 6th 2015

Thanks teacher!

Sunday, July 19th 2015

Hi, I have a question about punctuation. I am really confused of correct usage punctuation. Especially, when I want to use such adverbial conjunctions. Would you please provide a comprehensive lesson about this issue. Consider below sentences; Which one is true ?

X=1 therefore X+2 =3;
X=1, therefore X+2 =3;
X=1, therefore, X+2 =3;
I was gold so I decided to set fire.
I was gold , so I decided to set fire.

The rain was heavy thus the government announced ..
The rain was heavy, thus the government announced ..
The rain was heavy, thus, the government announced…

I don’t know the correct punctuation when these conjunction must be used in the middle of a sentence.

Best Regards.

Dear Adam,
I have been watching your English lesson on utube for a few weeks and have decided to register to Engvid membership. I like both of your teaching style and content. You make it easy to understand and fun to learn. I took a quiz on this lesson and got 7/10, I was quite pleased with my scores. However, I would really appreciate if you can add explainations stating the reason why does each correct answer has its power over others. Thank you so much for all you do to help English learner all over the world.

Monday, November 2nd 2015

Great Teacher!!! God Job!

Tuesday, January 12th 2016

Thank you Adam.

Saturday, February 27th 2016

The last one is almost a joke! Hence/hence or so/hence? This is the question! (Hamlet). Thank you Adam! Great lesson.

Thursday, March 17th 2016

Thank you soooo much!

Saturday, March 26th 2016

I got it. So, thank you.

Monday, April 18th 2016

Thanks Adam

Tuesday, May 17th 2016

Hi Adam,

I am still not sure with the usage of Hence, Consequently, So, Therefore… could you please make it a little more easy. Too much of information, and I was confused at the end. Would you please redo this?

Thursday, May 19th 2016

Hi! Please, could anyone explain the difference between consequently and therefore? Thanks!

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

Thank you very much

Saturday, June 18th 2016

great lesson

Wednesday, June 22nd 2016

Hi Adam,
In question 2.
After only three months on the job, the new CEO announced his resignation effective immediately; __________, the board of directors was.

Why the correct answer is consequently but not therefore ? please explain. Thanks

Sunday, July 17th 2016

In my opinion in exercise number 1o the word “hence” is stylistically incorrect because it’s been already written even when the person who writes the sentence likes old English. Give me feedback on this Adam. I admire your work, thanks!

Saturday, July 30th 2016

    What can I do to edit my comments? Cause I can’t I meant question 10 not question 1o . Thanks!

    Saturday, July 30th 2016

T.T.. I only got 6/10 for this test. Therefore I should practice more on this topic.

Monday, August 1st 2016

a little difficult I got 8/10 in the quiz
Thank you Adam

Sunday, August 7th 2016

Very good lesson

Wednesday, August 10th 2016

HI everyone. Even though, Adam mentioned in this video that we shouldn’t use the word Hence or he preferred not to , there were questions about it in the quiz. 🤔🤔🤔

Wednesday, August 31st 2016

Please I like you to give us more videos about these words, and thanks a lot for your help.

Wednesday, August 31st 2016

Hello Adam!
Do all writing tasks in the Toefl involve formal writing? Or are they mixed up (casual and formal)?

Thursday, September 22nd 2016

To summarize it:

1) You are stating, that THEN is possible to use instead of THAN even in cases, when it does nor connected with time whatsoever – this is what you are essentially clearly stating in the first half of the video (in the center or bottom half of the board) as well as in the second one – on the very bottom of the board.

2) You are essentially stating, that before so called BAD BOYS it is not essentially necessary to use commas – the second half of the video on top of the board.

Am I right?

Wednesday, October 12th 2016

Now I got 60 :(

Thursday, November 17th 2016

thank you adam, very useful lecture from you. i got 10/10 but i think i should study more about it because sometimes i still confused about this topic

Sunday, November 20th 2016

Great video thanks Adam

Saturday, December 10th 2016

I love “hence.” Students like such ancient sounding words.Once used properly, students sound far intelligenter then they actually are

Thursday, December 22nd 2016

rare 50/100 id have to repeat the test

Thursday, December 22nd 2016

Good morning teacher !
I didn’t get the difference between result and consequence. Because of that, therefore, thus and consequently (that you said it was slightly differente) seems the same to me. Could you explain me again?

Tuesday, January 3rd 2017

It is difficult lesson and quiz. But it really helpful for English learner. It should have more lesson about transition to make sure the learners are clearly understand on how to use each word.

Wednesday, January 4th 2017


Thursday, January 12th 2017

Nice test! Thank you so much

Tuesday, January 31st 2017

The meaning of these words is very similar.
