      Hi, I think you are wrong, in the sentence is “Have your cake and eat it too”. The sentence you’re writing on the board. Thanks

Hi Adam,
Thx for this lesson it is great. I extend my items in my English box.
I have question to question 4, I feel there should be put negative modal verb “should not” before idiom “take with a grain of salt”
Thx in advance for your explaining this.
Greeting from blooming spring’s Poland

    Hi Grzegorz,

    The negative is inherent (part of) the expression. Take with a grain of salt means don’t believe completely. So adding the should not would mean believe completely.

    Does this help?

Tasty, flavourful butter, with a little fat in it. Adam, spill the beans, what’s the recipe?

Profile photo of tomek11 tomek11

    I don’t think butter is flavourful. Maybe it’s tasty for someone but not flavourful.
    For me adjective flavourful means “have a lot of diffent flavours”. But I may be wrong.

    Profile photo of marcin95 marcin95

      I see why you would think that! But “flavourful” is also used to mean “has a strong flavour”. For example, these news articles mention flavourful flour and herbs. So butter can also be flavourful!

      Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

        It’s good to know. Thanks :)
        I have always thought “rich in flavour” or “flovoursome” mean “has a strong flavour”.

        Profile photo of marcin95 marcin95

        Nice job, Moderator! We didn’t have to wait for Adam to resolve the matter :)

          Good job indeed :)
          You too Tomek :)

          Profile photo of Adam Adam

Hi Adam, nice lesson, as usual! Could we say “bread & butter” also referring to a person? Like best friend or “twin soul”?

Profile photo of Emmegi Emmegi

    Hi Emmegi,

    Not in English. But you bring up a good point; people often translate expressions from their language or culture into English and are surprised when English speakers don’t know it.
    Be careful :)
    As for your expression, we have “kindred spirit”

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Ops! But I learned a new expression today! Kindred spirit, it sounds well! Thanks Adam.

Hello Adam,
Thanks for this lesson.
I must put the negative modal verb “should not” before the expression “take with a grain of salt”
Thanks to megsuto hand a lot and I would like to know more about these very good topics.

Profile photo of ramiro313619 ramiro313619

    Hi Ramiro,

    The negative is inherent (part of) the expression. Take with a grain of salt means don’t believe completely. So adding the should not would mean believe completely. (not not believe completely = believe completely)

    Does this help?

Hi Adam, my name is kady I am desperately in need to pass the toefl.I took it twice, and I am still struggling.I realize now I need a teacher to achieve my goal therefore, I think you should be the best teacher. I have watched many envid teacher and really learn a lot from the team but at the end you got to choose.I favor you so please if you help me achieve my aims it would be awesome. Also I in 1 month I am getting my license and the toefl constitute a huge wall in front of me. Thanks and I hope you are going to give me a feedback.

    Hi Fadija,

    Unfortunately, I do not teach directly these days. I do have my other channel (writetotop.com) for help with the writing section of the TOEFL and IELTS. Perhaps this can help a bit.

    Good luck with your preparation. :)

Hi Adam, I follow you for YouTube and your videos are very helpful. could you make a video explain about the word die, dead, death, dying? thank you

Profile photo of estheladoelman estheladoelman

    Hi Estheladoelman,

    The differences are parts of speech:
    die – verb
    dead – adjective
    death – noun
    dying – gerund or participle

    Does this help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      yes, it does. thank you

It´s hard to me take with a gran of salt, it´s not clear

Profile photo of naiomy naiomy

    Hi Naiomy,

    Take with a grain of salt means that you should not automatically believe the information you read or hear. The salt is like in food; it’s meant to add flavour, so you will add some doubt to make sure you are not being misled.

    Does this help?

So, does it mean that idiom about apple and apple tree is only about son and father, or mother and daughter ? can it be about son and mother as well?

    It can be about any parent and child! (Probably also grandparents, etc.)
