    Adam

      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

      AmyLe

    Well said FattySpaggeti :)

    Adam

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

Grzegorz Bak

    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?

    Adam

Thank you so much Adam, the lesson was awesome…

Hi there
Thanks

Thanks Adam,

great and excellent lesson.

Let´s transplant all this lovely and common idioms into our everyday English.

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

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.

    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!

      engVid Moderator

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

        marcin95

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

        tomek11

          Good job indeed :)
          You too Tomek :)

          Adam

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

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”

    Adam

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

      Emmegi

Hey Adam! Thanks for the lesson.

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.

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?

    Adam

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.

Fadija

    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. :)

    Adam

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

estheladoelman

    Hi Estheladoelman,

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

    Does this help?

    Adam

      yes, it does. thank you

      estheladoelman

Thank you very much, teacher Adam

abayaful

Thank you Adam, I’ve got 10!!

Vitao1800

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

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?

    Adam

so easy Thank you

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?

Ekaterin

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