    Mir Murad

Mr. Adam, thank you for your motivation, I got 30 from 100, which is forcing me to watch your video again and mark everything that did you say.

Mir Murad

    Hi Mir,

    It’s all about practice. Keep working on it and it will get easier ;)

Hi…I’d like to brush my speaking up. Is there anyone else who is interested in speaking to me on a regular basis? My whatsapp number is +88 01812788727. Thank you. Rasho.

You’re my lifesaver.

The question with the bullies got me. It seems it is not clear to who the last pronoun is referring. If “them” means the weak, then “stand up for” is not wrong. What do you think?

sonofsun

    Hi Sonofsun,

    Technically, you’re right. But then there would be no reason for them to be scared in the first place. Because no-one stands up to the bullies, they feel they can do whatever they want.

    That said, others are essentially the same people as no-one, if that makes sense.

    Anyway, I hope this helps a bit.

    Adam

Thanks a lot Adam for this video I Got 60/100 I still need to practice more.

“Get up, stand up, Stand up for your right” – Bob Marley.
Great lesson Adam, thanks a lot!!
P.S.: the last question of the quiz wasn´t explained in the video, was it? I reviewed it, but I didn´t find that meaning of stand up.

knopfler86

    Hi Knopler. I failed this particular quiz question. I’ve googled up “stand up” and It means to fail to meet someone for a date without informing them beforehand. Sad.
    Bye! ?

    Agustinn

    You’re right Knopfler. I had meant to explain that but I guess I must have forgotten.

    To stand someone up means to not appear for a scheduled meeting or appointment, or as in this example, a date.

    I’ll change the question in the quiz.

    Adam

It is nice to start,even though I got 60.

Cosme Saldanha

    Adam

It’s my pleasure to know this site i hope i’ll get many things from u frinds

Joseph A Mbise

I am not sure about the last question, why it is stand up. Could you please explain more? Thank you very much.

leoflier

    Hi Leoffler,

    That was my mistake. I had meant to explain that but I guess I must have forgotten.

    To stand someone up means to not appear for a scheduled meeting or appointment, or as in this example, a date.

    I’ll change the question in the quiz.

    Adam

Sorry! There is any online English course I can be enrolled. Thanks in advance

Baba Lameck

this isn’t a lesson related question. but there is no one to ask this. i watched a movie called ”The Power Of The Dog” and there was a line mentioning that ”you could take her out without putting sack over her head” i need to know what this means? if you could help me with this.

Kasun Madusanka

    Hi Kasun,

    I haven’t seen the movie, but to “take someone out” can mean to kill someone. Without the sack means without putting a bag on her head. Does this fit the context you are describing?

    Adam

Thank you Mr. Adam.

Alex-1956

very useful lesson, Thanks for your help.

Seif Eldawla

This may not related to the video but,

Sir. Adam I have a question about your video (https://youtu.be/oOeEP82DEZQ), where you explained possessive gerunds. You gave some examples:

1. I appreciate you seeing me on such short notice. (Wrong)

2. I appreciate your seeing me on such short notice. (Correct)

3. I love you singing. (Correct)

4. I love your singing. (Correct)

My question is why sentence 1 is incorrect, but sentence 3 is correct according to your video? I mean they are both the same, right? You seeing, you singing.

I hope you could respond. ?
Thank you.

carlo012717

    Hi Carlo,

    If you notice in the video, I mention that sentence 3 and 4 have very different meanings. In 3, singing is a participle. So, I love you. when? when you are singing.
    In 4, singing is a gerund. So, I love the singing. Whose singing? Your singing.

    In sentence 1, I don’t appreciate you, I appreciate what you did, so need the possessive.

    Does this help?

    Adam

      Thank you so much sir Adam. You’re affable. I hope you make a lesson about embedded clauses.

      carlo012717

THANKS FOR THESE VERY USEFUL VIDEOS!! Excellent work. I hope you will do more, e.g. phrasal verb videos about prepositions. If you dot an UP video, do not forget to mention this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2W3aG8uizA, “Stand up for your rights” by Bob Marley. It is probably a good idea to include famous quotes including new words every time you can. It would be great to know more about the origins of some phrasal verbs. Does anyone knows about it? The story of many words is really cool. For example, the French word for steal comes from the word for “fly”, “voler”. It comes from falconry, when a hawk “flew”, i.e. caught, a smaller bird. At first it was a special kind of theft, when someone snatched your property like a hawk, but nowadays “voler” is any kind of thieving. I am sure that phrasal verbs have a fascinating history of metaphorical movements and it would be fantastic to learn more about it. It would make the learning easier and more fun. PS: actually, there is already an UP video on Engvid: https://www.engvid.com/learn-10-english-phrasal-verbs-with-up/ THANKS FOR ALL!

Kiskrof

Hi Adam, well,, Although it is different kind of question and not related to this lesson, I want to have a question. What differences are in “The diamond was stolen by a thief” and “The diamond was taken by a thief”?
I know, steal=without permission, take=with permission + intend to return
But, Does the word “take” have no meaning of stealing something? I look it up for almost two hours, but, There’s no useful information, not merely adam but also all the people ,to whom may it concern, please give me any saying, Thanks you

killi

    Hi Killi,

    Technically, when a thief steals something, he/she takes it. Take doesn’t have to mean with permission. In fact steal and take can be synonyms. Someone might want to use take instead of steal because to say steal is to accuse someone of a crime. You can imply this with the word take, which is softer, until you have enough proof to say steal.
    There is also the “evil” intent n steal and the softer action of take.

    I hope this helps a little.

    Adam

Thanks everyone :)

Adam
