hello Adam! thanks for these useful expression. I got 10. I have a question and I am so appreciated if you answer me. that is : how we read 1900s? nineteen hundreds?

Profile photo of reza2ok reza2ok

    good question +1

    Profile photo of at-LightSpeed "don't disturb me" at-LightSpeed "don't disturb me"

      I found its answer you should read that nineteen hundreds

      Profile photo of reza2ok reza2ok

        Hi Reza,

        Yes, anytime you see an ‘s’ added to a number, jut say the number as usual and add the plural s or es, etc.

        e.g.1970s = nineteen seventies.
        2000s – two thousands.

        Glad you found it out on your own though ;)

Great lessons!
In your opinion, what’s the best online English dictionary?

Profile photo of Gran Maestro Gran Maestro

    Hi Banana Joe,

    I personally prefer the Oxford (if writing in Canada or UK)or the Merriam-Webste (US), but dictionary.com is very convenient.

    Hope this helps.

    If it had a lot of links in it or was very long, it may have been marked as spam.

    Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

      Thank you for clarifying. I’m sure it wasn’t spam but I agree with you, it was very long indeed.

      Profile photo of Hassan ABS Hassan ABS

    Thanks Hassan.

    Keep in mind a full list would be very long indeed. Better to absorb a few at a time ;)

The most difficult part of this lesson, for me, was to well understand the questions of the quiz. I think that if I could understand all those sentences I had no need to study English.

Thank you, Adam.

I thought that “ You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” meant you can’t teach him new tricks because he is more smarter than you and he already know how smth is done/ how to resolve the problem in a better way. Actually you are saying that this old dog is simply used with his old way of doing things. (Maybe an outdated way ;) ) Thank you… Hopefully you will make more videos about body language and business English

      I think he is asking about pronunciation. You sound to me as an american guy:))

        Canadian and American accents can be very similar :)

      What a witty teacher! I praise you Mr. Adam.

A lot of ground to cover means what, Mr.Adam. I take the words from your explanation. I am a newbie

hey Adam sir. a ques pls tell”I think I know the truth” in this the noun clause is the object of which verb?

Profile photo of kshitij000 kshitij000

    Hi Kshitij,

    I – subject
    think – verb
    (that)I know the truth – noun clause as object to the verb think.

    Is this what you meant?

Adam, I have a question, about idioms…I have read the idiom “learn something by heart”. What does it really mean?

Profile photo of daloro daloro

    Hi Daloro,

    It means to memorize something. For example, if you have to give a speech, you will learn it by heart so you don’t need to reed it out.

    Hope this helps.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      It definitely helps! Thanks a lot! I like so much Engvid and your lessons Adam :)

Thanks, Professor!
Any example with: Make the grade?
Thanks

Profile photo of Tapicero Tapicero

    Hi Tapicero,

    To make the grade means to reach the right standard or level.

    Jim tried out for the swim team, but he ddn’t make the grade because all the others had many more years experience.

    Does this help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Hi Adam,
      Yes, it does!
      Thanks for your response and for all your great videos.

Hi Adam?
What is the meaning of the phrase “come from education”?
In Russian it does not sound quite correct
Give some synonyms of this phrase, please.

Thanks everyone :)

Profile photo of Adam Adam

Hello sir Adam can you please suggest ways about how can I master all the 12 tenses?

Profile photo of Alison Alison

    Hi Alison,

    You should get a good grammar book with exercises and an answer key. I’m afraid that when it comes to grammar, it’s all about good explanations and practice. After that, practice reading every day. You will see the tenses in action and learn their uses in context.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Thanks a lot Adam.

      Profile photo of Alison Alison

Thanks for idioms ,, but excuse me I have a problem with the expression “can’t teach an old dog new tricks”,, I think it’s not suitable way to speak with old people?

Profile photo of Ghydaa Ghydaa

    It’s just an idiom. There is nothing insulting in it.

    Profile photo of Egghead Egghead

    Hi Ghydaa,

    It’s not about the person’s age as much as it is about his or her established ways. Generally, older people have habits that are hard to change because they have been repeated for a long time. However, a young person who has done one job for 10 years would be stubborn to change as well, and this expression would apply as well.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

Some of phrase I heard early but most is new for me. Very usefull lesson. I hope I will cover a lot of ground with Adam.

Hi Adam, I was wondering if you could tell me(or us) how you think (that) older people have low ability ro learning more.

Excuse me for wrong spelling the word after the word ‘ability’; ‘to’ .

Mila can sing well but it makes her arrogant so I sing in front of her and hope I school her because I know I have much more experiences in singing than she does.
