      Gee!!! I had to watch this video twice.

      You need to be able to notice the subtle nuances of meaning of each word in order to get all quiz items right?

      Do you all agree? I´m open to suggestions guys.

      Thanks again Mr. Benn for all these great Video lessons.

      P.S. I learned a new word today “Nuance”.

        Oh, Gosh!!! Making mistakes as usuall . . .

        Correction: “You need to be able to NOTE the subtle differences IN meaning of each word . . .”

        Profile photo of Regino Regino

          hahaha no problem Regino, in italian we use to say: Sbagliando s’impara… ( it means: By Trials and errors you learn) However , I think that “usuall” is spelled “usual” :))
          I do lots of errors too. So I decided to watch all the “Beginners ” videos so I can refresh my English ,( I’m sure that I’ve made some errors as well… let me know…:)) )

          Tall and High: As I understood Tall is used for objects that were in a certain way “growth by an action ” A building is, let me use this term, “growth” by people who construct the building, but a mountain is not “growth” by anything, it’s been there forever . So Tall implicates the reuslt of an action and it’s mostly used for physical objects. High is suitable to refer to abstracts ideas. (I know I made some mistakes, so feel free to correct

    Great quiz, Adam! We can learn English and general knowledge; “The Dead Sea is the lowest place on Earth.” I didn’t know this! ;-)

As always your lesson is very interested and clear. But what do you mean by “don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel”?
What is the objective?
How to do that?

Kind regards.

why answer is 2 i e Do ,could you explain by taking lec on dishes and kitchen terminology<I'll be very Thankful to you if do so.

Profile photo of rajpal90 rajpal90

    Hi Rajpa,

    First, make or do depends on what comes after. It’s mostly a question of remembering. I’ll try to make a kitchen lesson.

    As for public speaking, the only way to get rid of fear is by doing it as often as you can. Remember also that the wort thing anyone can do is laugh at you, and in the big picture of life, that isn’t so bad.

Could you tell me a difference between hard and difficult? It is possible to use them interchangeably?

Profile photo of namur namur

    Hi Namur,

    Technically we use hard to describe something that is not soft. Difficult is something that is not easy.

    Many people do use hard in place of difficult and it is acceptable, but technically difficult is more correct. “This is a really difficult math problem.” “The bread was too hard to eat.”

    Does that help?

Thanks a lot Adam, was a very helpfull class.

Profile photo of Arthur Unti Ferrer Arthur Unti Ferrer

Excellent! I do like your classes. I was wondering if you talk about collective nouns and the verb usage. I still confuse when I should say “My family is” or “my family are”…
Could you please help me?! Thank you very much!

    1. My family are coming for Easter. 2. My family consists of three people. The first sentence stresses single members of family and in the second sentence family is treated as one body. Another example could be: The police are looking for the burglar. The police is more reliable recently.

    Profile photo of dako dako

    Hi Marcia,

    If you are talking about the group (collective) as one unit than the unit is singular, but if you talk about the individuals in the unit, then it is plural.

    The staff are expected to adhere to the rules of service laid out by the company.- means everybody

    The staff is going to be recruited by the president only.-all the staff

    but this is a good question. I will make a lesson about it.

Hello Adam:

I would like to ask you following question please if you can help about conditional:

What is the differnce between:

If I had’t paid my rent, I would have had to move to the hotel. ( one action in past causing another necessary or urgent possible action (past necessity)

If I had won the last weekend lottery, I would have paid all my loan. ( past conditional but not past necessity)

Could you explain please,



Profile photo of Rob788 Rob788

    Hi Rob,

    If I had’t paid my rent, I would have had to move to the hotel.(means that you did pay the rest so didn’t have to move)

    If I had won the last weekend lottery, I would have paid all my loan (means you didn’t win so still have a debt.

    Past conditional is about past events that can’t be changed.

    Does this help?

Well~ I got 8 correct out of amount. :) This lesson is very useful specially for non-native English speaker like me. I always heard when someone talking about money and they used the word “big” to describe large money. I know which one is better to use after this lesson. Thanks~ Another question is, can I say huge money?? And what is the difference between huge money and large money? Personally what I understand is, huge money is like a million, but large can be like hundred, am I right?

Profile photo of ゞ(≧▽≦*)o ゞ(≧▽≦*)o

    Hi Bian,

    It’s a matter of perspective. f a house costs $10 million and you’re Bill gates, it’s small change. But, if you’re an English teacher, it’s huge money.

Hello Adam, thanks for your lessons!
Frankly I don’t agree with your question no. 5, because the correct answer is depend on what you want to say.
If you choose “little ” it means that you don’t believe.
If you choose “small ” it means that you believe but chance is not good (big).
Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    Cheh, personally i think that reason isn’t a physical object, so it’s like in a case with “high season/price/cost”. Of course, we can count reasons but we can’t measure them, at least if we’re talking about dimensions. Let’s see what Adam will answer us))

    Profile photo of natie2051 natie2051

Adam, could you explain the fourth question in your quiz – The forests along Canada’s west coast have some of the ____________ trees in the world.
The right answer is “the tallest”. Why is it so? I would choose – the highest. You gave us an example of a “sitting” mountain and i think that trees and forests aren’t standing (i mean people ddin’t plant them, especially along the coast). If they are, it means that a mountain stands as well. What do you think about this?
Thanks for your very useful video!

Profile photo of natie2051 natie2051

    Hi Natie, first of all, let me tell you that you explained yourself clearly.

    Once I was told by a native English teacher that when you talk about buildings or trees you should use the adjective “Tall”. But if you talk about mountains or peaks the adjective is “High”.

    Hope it helps.

    All the best.

    P.S. I didn’t know you were an English teacher until I read your profile. That’s great!

    As language teachers put it, “your performance in the target language is quite good”.

Tom collects spiders. He has a ________ tarantula in a glass aquarium.

Which highlighted word in the sentence would suggest that the tarantula is “cute”?
Here you said that little is correct(I have chosen small considering that there was one spider:)) I cannot understand the connection between cute and little:( p.s.: Thank you very much for such useful lessons!

I can use the right one most of the time. I just have a question.

“A small tarantula” and “a little tarantula” are both correct, but the differences are similar to “a small man” and “a little man”, am I right?

E.i You are my little boy (it sounds cute)
You are a small boy. (His stature is short)

Thank you very much Adam. I’d appreciate your feedback. =)

Hello, Adam! Your videos are very helpful. I watch them with big pleasure, you are interesting person, and thank you for your clearly pronounciation))So, I have a question. In the test the last expression says “Lhasa, a city in Tibet, is one of the _________ cities in the world.” – how can the city be highest or tallest? I’m confused)Thank you)

Profile photo of Alexys Alexys

    When we talk about “high” or “low” locations it usually means how far they are above sea level. Much of the Netherlands is so low-lying, they need dams to keep the sea from flooding in. But Lhasa is over three kilometres above sea level! Hence, one of the highest cities in the world.

    “Tallest city” is not a common usage, but could describe the city with the most skyscrapers (probably New York), or the city with the tallest building (Dubai).

      I see, thank you! I thought about the location and sea level, but in my language we don’t say so, that’s why I made a mistake in the answer) I’ll do my best )

    Come on Magda! You’re still young.

    What you need is to go over the lesson and take the quiz again, that’s all.

    Hope you follow my advice.

    All the best, for ever young.

    Thanks for your feedback Perlamar.

    You’re right, most of the times we learn by TRIAL and error -of course by MAKING mistakes/errors- and it is a good approach.

    …a mountain is not GROWN by anyone, it’s been there forever.

    Growth— it’s a noun

    Grow— it’s a verb

    Hope it helps, regards.

Very good lesson. Before this lesson I couldn’t understand the difference between “big” and “large” or “tall” and “high”. I actually thought they’re synonyms of course, but they’re interchangeable and means almost the same thing.
Thank you, Adam.

I find this really useful. But the important thing is how can I remember each situation to put the right word in!!

what wicked means

Profile photo of romysa samy romysa samy

    The regular meaning of “wicked” is “evil”, like a witch, or like the “bad guy” in superhero and fantasy movies. The slang meaning of “wicked” is the opposite—it means “cool” or “impressive”. A really cool skateboard trick is “wicked”.

    In some dialects, it is used as an intensifier like “really” or “extremely”. Something that’s very good is “wicked good”.
