In this section, your explanation is quite rush, I feel. But After jotting down on a piece of paper and taking quizzes test, I got 90 makes of them.
Anyway, I do appreciate your lessons, teache.

We have an expression that looks like “Dot the I’s” and in Russian it sound like ” to put all dots over the I/i/” but we use it when we want to say that someone wants to make the situation clear, to discuss all the details.

DOMENICOADONINI

    I’ll see what I can do about that Domenicoadonini ;)

    Adam

I forgot a fundamental thing, in a video Alex says never to use prepositions at the end of a sentence, while in your videos you often use prepositions at the end of the sentence … who should I listen to? :-) Excuse my ignorance!

DOMENICOADONINI

    Not at all, Domenico.

    Many English teachers will tell you the same as Alex. This is considered correct English. That being said, most people do not worry too much about this rule. In everyday conversation, people don’t want to think about “correct” grammar and prefer quick expression. Also, that rule sometimes makes for uncomfortable sentence:

    Who did you go to the movies with? (commonly used)
    With whom did you go to the movies? (correct, but not commonly used).

    Ultimately, in everyday situations do what feels right for you. If you are taking a language test, follow the rule.

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

You guys do this for free and it means a lot for community which don’t really have money to pay a course. Thanks so much you are the best

Thank you for your effort Mr. Adam

Thanks for the class. Alex, about the question 10, the answer couldn’t be the “the i’s dotted and t’s crossed”, as well?

Marcio07

    Hi Marco,

    I guess you could, but in this sentence we are referring to steps in the process. Dot the is … usually refers to texts and single things that need to be perfect. If it was just about the presentation, for example, then that expression would work better.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thank you!

Very useful but I think that in the test item #10 the correct choice (only one variant) is rather controversial. Of course before approaching a client with a proposal it`s important to have one`s ducks in a row, but not less essential that everything be completed. In other words all i`s should be dotted and t`s crossed. Am I wrong?

kratkoag

    Hi Kratkoag,

    No, not wrong. But, in this sentence we are referring to steps in the process. Dot the Is … usually refers to texts and single things that need to be perfect. If it was just about the presentation, for example, then that expression would work better.

    Does this help?

    Adam

OK, Hello.
Sorry I have a grammar problem and i thought you might be the perfect person who could answer it
This is my question :
Is ( more and more good ) grammatically correct ?
I mean we say ( better and better ) but can we say ( more and more good ) as well ?

777 Shadow 777

    Hi Shadow,

    We never use more good. There are actually reason for using ____-er and more ___ than, but good, bad, and some other examples always change for the comparative.

    However, if you use good as a noun (As humans, we should all strive to do good whenever possible.) In this case, you can say more good:
    Philanthropists do more and more good as their wealth grows.

    See this video as well:

    Does this help?

    Adam

hi Adam,thank you for a very useful lesson.Can you tell me which idiom that you have introduced for us can be use in formal writing?

Jessica Nguyen

    Hi Jessica,

    These can be used in some formal situations:
    by the book off the ground
    think outside the box cut corners
    back to square one Word-of-mouth

    However, don’t overuse these and be sure you are 100% of their meaning and use.

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

Thank you Adam .
