Hi,

I don’t understand the explanation about the milk word. Can you explain of other form? Grateful.

PS: i recommend this site for all my friends, to learn english at home.

Joao Lopes

    Hi Joao,

    To milk a cow means to squeeze its udders (milk bag, sort of) and get the milk out of it. To milk someone or something means to squeeze all the benefit from him/her/it. For example, if you hurt yourself and everyone is being nice to you, you might milk the sympathy for all its worth, which means you like being treated extra nice and want it to last as long as possible, so you might even pretend to be hurt after you are ok so people will continue to treat you extra nice.

    Does that help?

    Adam

      hello:
      i don’t get the exact meaning of watered down. can you explain further?

      lenz

        TO WATER SOMETHING DOWN MEANS TO REDUCE TO QUANTITY AND QUALITY OF SOMETHING. EXAMPLE: BEING SHORT OF TIME, THE PROFFERSOR WATERED DOWN HIS SPEECH. THIS MEANS THAT THE QUANTITY (HERE LENGTH)OF THE SPEECH WAS REDUCED.

        HOPE YOU UNDERSTOOD IT :)

        utkarshjain

        Yeah, you’re right Adam, but to some extent. But I think there are some rules in English that should not be broken or bent -even in spoken English- like for instance in the following example:

        “How am I supposed to know other words/more words without Adam here to explain them?” ( a sentence taken from the video).

        It is understandable, but not correct. You EXPLAIN something TO someone. You do not EXPLAIN someone SOMETHING.

        Great lesson Mr. Benn.

        All my best.

        Regino

      You are grate Adam. I like your teaching program.

      Phyo

        Hey, Phyo, I found a typo by chance. GREAT instead of GRATE.

        jlg234bob

orabella

Hello, We are really appreciative for what you are
doing here.
as you know nowadays most people apply for studying
abroad. so, I would like to ask you talk about
university vocabulary.
The things that a student needs to know about Foreign
universities from applying to studying there.

jafarasady

Very interesting lesson, thanks Adam!

lluispinyol

Hi Adam,
i learned a lot and i think you watered down the lesson very well.
thanks man

i. man

Interesting lesson. Using of same words in unusual meanings make us similar to native speakers. Thanks Adam.

Elisa

Good lesson Adam, thank you

ilfabri1966

I just knew that milk can be used in different meaning. But the rest of the words I didn`t know.
So thank you … good lesson.

Fabricio

you are great teachers in a great site. thank you very much Adam and other teachers.

HoneyMody

Thank you Adam! Your lesson gave me surprising?

Han Nguyen

Thanks Adam, but could you give me more examples of water and down, because i didnt understand very well the meaning

karem95

    Hi Karem,

    If you have some very bad news to give someone, and you are worried about how they will react, you might want to water down the news so that it will be easier for them to hear it. For example, if you were fired from your job and you had to tell your family, you might water it down by talking about the job interview you have next week, that way the news is not as bad.
    Is that example useful?

    Adam

      Yes, it is. Thanks Adam

      karem95

      Mr Adam ,actually I ‘d like to show my admiration to your perfect way to simplify these meanings so clearly like that . My sincer gratitude for you

      honestheart

good lesson thanks

rabbani

Thank you for good lecture :D I’ll milk knowledge from here :)

singminho

a great lesson from a great teacher. I want to milk you teacher Adam and hole site:). you water down the lesson for me.

honeymody

    Thank you honeymody, but please be careful; you always want to milk someone FOR SOMETHING. Otherwise it might lose its meaning a little.
    :)

    Adam

I appreciate your help. First time , I am posting here. On the website, I couln’t find the option to post the questions. I am confuse about when to use expression,’matter of fact’. And ‘mine as well’. Can you help me ?
Thank you

sonishruti

    Matter-of-fact, as an adjective, means commonplace or straightforward or unimaginative. You might read a matter-of-fact news story that gives you plain details about something. Or when a public official announces some new law in a boring voice, they are speaking in a matter-of-fact way.

    The expression “As a matter of fact…” is used the same as “actually”. “Don’t you work at that store?” “Yes. As a matter of fact, I just got promoted to manager.”

Why don’t have any examples sentences?

Diana

Hi, Adam, you have done your job excellent. I really appreciate your way of teaching. It really helps me a lot. Thank you. Take care.

bhaskarbtv

There’s a typo, I think make = maker.

yay

    Hi yay,

    Actually, that is the point of this lesson: MAKE is the correct word. Instead of maker you would say manufacturer, but when talking about the product itself, we use make (and model). That’s why people get confused.

    Adam

      Good lesson , thank you Adam

      adegis

new useful lesson to me.thanks adam.

hai Adam, how are You? Soory Are you new teacher in Engvid.com? Thank you, kindly

Jon waldinson Pereddy Damanik

Thanks Adam, this data is very important, because usually we learn only one meaning and then we find it difficult to understand when others say something in a different context. Thanks again for this information.

andrew28

    The first paisano I’ve ever seen at engvid.com!

    jonath689

To all teachers of engvid thank you and congrats for excellent job , I hope you will never get tired because you are doing a good to others by helping us to developed our skills, and maybe you are going to correct my grammar because i’m not really sure in my grammar but maybe soon I can say to my self that “Wow! sanny you really improve yourself ” :)
Ps. thaks a lot guys.

piroo

i could not understand what the forth question mean

Hasoos

    Hi Hassos,

    When we talk about cars we talk about make and model. For example, Honda Civic– Honda is the make (manufacturer) and Civic is the model. In q4, the make is Lamborghini, which is a very expensive car so very expensive to provide insurance for.

    Does that help?

    Adam

thanks Teacher Adam !!

odir

hi Adam
your lesson very interesting
can you make an other similar.
thanks

moez

I got 10 out of 10!! If i don’t listen this class, maybe I will only get 1score~

Jajaja 9 out to 10!
Actually I’ve only failed in your quizzes. But that’s cool, cause I found the other ones too easy for me and I’m not an advance student.
Finally a real Challenge :D

I had the same problem with word “train”. I thought it is a noun and it means a thing on a rails that carries passengers and cargo. And I was very surprised when i know that this word was in use in 14 century.

Etimology dictionary will help a lot.

dimz

    Hi dimaz,

    That’s a great point, but I think most people don’t go that far. Good for you, though, that you do. Keep it up.

youness128

Hi Adam!
I`m a brazilian taxi driver, from de city of São Paulo and a friend of mine, she´s an English, German, Italyan, Spanish and French teacher ( authorized technical traducer ) recomended me your link. I felt that fucking great, because while you was explaining the tricks I could understand each word like it would be portuguese.Tha´s because you speak a “very polite English”. I learned that in the English School in wich I studied ( Cell Lep ). Unfortunately, not all of the foreigner people that come to Brazil think that way. They think that you have to comprehend them the way they speak, fast, full of slangs and tricks. That´s why I´ll be in my vacations during the Brasil´s 2.014 world cup. But I wil continue watching your lessons on the net. Tehy are great! Congratulations!
Your brazilian friend Beto.

Beto

Sorry about my English. I know I made too much mistakes like “de” where it should be “the”.

Beto

thanks for the 6 words..

lhem76

Hi there! You rock Adam. I’d like to thank you for yours 2 lessons so far, and I want to you to know I’m looking forward to watch more and more lessons from you. Thank you very much. See you on the lessons coming up, soon, I hope.

Regards

Leandro from Brazil.

leandroaraujo

Hello, Adam, Thanks for thos very interesting lesson. I have one question. At the begining of the lesson you said :…..you are not understanding. Why did you use present continuous.. Isn’t understand a state verb or is it an exception? Thanks for your reply

danip

    Hi danip,

    Good ear–you make an excellent point, and in fact you are correct. Understand is a state verb and can’t be used in a continuous form. But, to tell you the truth, spoken English is a language whose grammar rules can be bent, even broken sometimes, without losing meaning. The reason I used understanding is to make the context of the situation more immediate (ie. you are (actively) trying to understand something but are unable to at the time). Is it correct? Not really. I would never write it that way. But, again, spoken English can get away with a lot.
    I hope that explanation helps.

    Adam

      Yeah, you’re right Adam. But I think there are some rules that should not be broken or bent like for instance:

      How am I supposed to know other words/more words without Adam here to explain them? ( a sentence taken from the video).

      It is understandable, but not correct. You EXPLAIN something TO some one.

      Great lesson Mr. Benn

      Regino

Thanks!!! it is a good lesson and a wonderfull site

Jonathan

HI everyone,

Thanks again for the great feedback. i really appreciate it.

I just want to explain why this lesson is labeled ‘beginner’– words like make, meet, water, etc., are among the first words students of English learn. The problem is that they learn the traditional meanings and become comfortable with them and don’t pay attention to secondary meanings, which are just as important. The most important point I want you to take away from this lesson is that you need to use your dictionaries all the time, even for simple words; you need to milk them for all they’re worth ;)

see you all again soon

Adam

Thanks to you sir ..you just water the lesson down …you are great teacher ..please post more and more lessons

dear sir, i just want to clarify that the word ‘mean” itself is an adjective but also act as a noun..in the quiz
The mean score of the people taking this quiz is 8.

Here, mean is used as:
an adverb
a noun
a verb
an adjective
i mark as a noun just learn from your lesson but its adjective.How sir?

allcolorslife

Thank you Adam!

andreiafreitas36

Hello, I think the answer for question number 2 is wrong because ‘the mean score’ means the average of score right? so it is a noun. Why the correct answer is an adjective?

And also the answer of number 6. You said that water down is to make it less intense so I think the correct answer would be lowering the price. Why the correct is ‘adding water to the alcohol to get more shots from each bottle’?

Vita

    Hi Vita,

    Here it is used to describe the score, so acting as adjective. If used by itself, it would be a noun.
    Check this out:
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/mean

    As for the watered down drinks, they charge the same price but serve weaker alcohol because there is water in it.

    Does that help?

    Adam

Thank you, it was interesting.

Amir

Would you help me with the IELTS reading I just don’t know why but I find it difficult I don’t think it’s the English because I have been studying English all my life and i know iam as. good as a native.I think ielts is a skill where we need a tactic to tackle the reading it’s not really a test to know people’s level of English.
is there a way you could help me overcome this problem.

edgarvargas

Hello!
Is there any difference between WEAR, WEAR OUT and WEAR DOWN?

Thanks.

victoria230593

    Hi victoria230593,
    “wear” has very extended dictionary entries. For example the verb “wear” means “to have something on your body as clothing or decoration” (e.g. to wear a T-shirt; to wear glasses), “to have a particular appearance or expression” (e.g. to wear puzzled frowns) or “to become weaker or thinner because of intense usage” (e.g. His shoes are wearing at the heel).
    “To wear out” and “to wear down” are phrasal verbs, that means the verb and the following preposition belong together. In this case “to wear out” means “to make someone feel very tired” (e.g. to be worn out by working hard) or “to use something a lot that it can no longer be used” (e.g. the tyres had worn out). “To wear down” means “to make someone gradually lose their energy or confidence” (e.g. to wear down an opponent) or “to make something gradually disappear or become thinner by using it a lot” (e.g. the old stone steps have been worn down by years of use). Check various online dictionaries as well! Hope it helps…

    lauftammo

      Thank you very much.

      victoria230593

thanks sir,it’s really helpful.

megi

very interesting lessen , it is dictionary give just the different meanings for the we search for, but we have to understand the context of the word searched to explain it succesfuly

simsima

Dear mam..
i hope you’d like to help me with this prob which is irrelevant to this lesson..this is a very important grammar point which nobody of my friends could explain of…

mam i know how to use ”where”with other ways..

how to use where with words like these??

1 That is the RELATIONSHIP where one thing makes a change in another.

2 if you have gone to a WEBSITE where you have to create an account for yourself..

3 This procedure should be followed in CASES where dishonesty has been alleged.

4 Due to the volume of emails we receive we are unable to respond to the EMAILS where the answer can be found on our web site itself.

5 I got to the STAGE where I wasn’t coping any more.

These are a few sentences i have a lot..please explain to me with some of your own sentences how to use ”where” with these words.

THANKING YOU

thanks,this lesson said “wear” also means weaken something like clothes.
“what are you wearing?” is this question could be double-meaning(confusing)?

    Shona91

Dear teacher,
Thank you so much for all your lessons,
Now I can say that my 4 years of studying english in the unversity were useless.
Did you teach in Morocco? if yes, in which city?

Shona91

hi adam!
thank you very much…I like your teachings.

I have 2 question :
1. here :
“The mean score of the people taking this quiz is 8” why mean is an adj??
2.when we use “milk” as verb , we must tell sth for the reason??
I read this answer of you and consused :(
“but please be careful; you always want to milk someone FOR SOMETHING. Otherwise it might lose its meaning a little”

Thank you for your lesson.

Oh,isn’t the English language surprising?

The more you learn the more you have to study.

Sonia1234

Adam, we need a teacher like you… thanks to Engvid and to all the teachers…

ttenaj

Adam, the “wear” thing doesn’t have anything to
do with “worn out” which is a phrasal verb.

Am I right?

Sonia1234

Hi Adam :) You’re great teacher ! I think that you should teach in polish school ! :)

Insignificant

I never think that i will be surprised of these words.

kido

Thanks Mr Adam for the lesson, but in my perspective i found ambiguity here.

Why did you not put NOT ONLY … BUT ALSO formula in the 8th question.
“A good employee is one who NOT ONLY meets expectations, BUT goes beyond them.”

What is going on here!!!!????

kido

Can I milk you fo me? Is the sentence right?

Perla Diniz

Hi,
does the noun “meet” only applies to sports events or to every big event?

Tadeth

In spanish the verb milk have the same meaning that in english so I just milked this lesson and achieved more knowledge of the english language!!!!By the way, thanks Adam.

AlejandroTorres

I was confused with the words “use” and “wear” now it´s all clear to me, we must use wear when something becomes less for using it a lot, Am I right Adam???

AlejandroTorres

Nice to see you again Mr Adam. Oh my God… in the next semester, on March, i will teach English with about 200 local students divided into 6 classes. I need to boost my knowledge by following your video… You always seem awesome and energetic… You are very much to look at… It makes me endure to learn English ))

kido

Dear Adam. Thank you so much for your lessons. Could you give me a favor ? Please recommend me some novels with watered down versons for ESL level.Hope to have your response soon.

linhndk

That was fun. In Russian language phrase “water down” have the opposite meanings, as I understand you correctly. Just meaningful, technical words, not “bla-bla” words, not simple sentences.

balaban

hello guys

Tommy Chen

abnormal as a lesson, thanks

moezbesbes

it was a great lesson

Ravinath

Hi Adam. You know, the first time I used the word “Make” in the sense of “brand, manufacturer, OEM etc”, it was at work, when I composed a short introductory report with regards to “long term car leasing”. I work in a multi national company and as you well understand, English is far more used than our native language. Although I was absolutely aware and sure that the particular word could be used to describe what i intended to, it was a bi surprise for me to realise that many recipients (even foreign colleagues) were actually confused when they read about the “X Make & Model” vs the “Y Make & Model” (and so forth). Including this word, was a very good choice. Cheers.

George66H

Nice video

Nimarjeettbajw@gmail.com

Hello Adam, great video! I wanna ask you if you could make a video tip talking about how to diminish the accent. Thank you so much.

Fabio Camilo

I didn’t understood the word tear, could you please explain again?

Fabio Camilo

Instead of saying “meet your expectations”could i say “reach your expectations”?

Fabio Camilo

thanks teacher.ALLAH blesses and guid you.say amene

youssef 01

Hi, Adam. This is Irene. Here is one thing that I don’t understand. In this lesson you mentioned about “mean is a noun to be average.” But why “the mean score of the people taking this quiz is 8.” in this case, mean acts as a adjective?

Irene Ding

its very useful thank you

kajalpreet

Thanks Adam,
it is very useful for me

saeedred

Thanks Adam.

ajprapu

Hi! I have a question. When you speak or write about someone and you don’t know if it’s a she or a he what do you say?Eh?

For exemple: I know someone who’s a huge fan of Twilight. She’s truly madly deeply in love with Edward.

I know what to write since I know her and I know she’s a girl.

But what if I don’t know wheter it’s a girl or a boy and it doesn’t really matter.

For exemple: When someone is depressed, it means he/she/it doesn’t have any friends.

Is it possible to use -they- ? When someone is depressed, it means they don’t have any friends.

I know you can say something like -one-(which is the same thing as you i think like in this sentence) but then what pronoun do you use?

Hope my question’s clear

Ccruckp

    Yes, they and one both work. With one, pronouns can get a bit awkward. For example, “One should go to the doctor if one’s mood swings are interfering with one’s everyday life”. Ronnie has a lesson on this too.

Belkhiat

Dear Sir,
It is really nice to have you as my teacher. Hope you are well. I have a question. In your tutorial you said the meaning of the word; mean (noun) is average. But in question #2, ‘mean’ is used as an adjective. I thought it was used as a noun. It would be very nice if you explain the matter.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Azizul Hoque

I did not understand it at first, but in the test got 8 of 10 .. Thank you anyway

malak.66

Hi,
I have a question about ‘wear’
Is that can used just ‘wear’ or with ‘out’? I have some sentences which relate what I’m saying. Forexample ‘Her shoes wear out quickly when she goes walking.’ Is there any difference between wear and wear out?

leventg

10/10 you watered down it fantastic

HI, Adam.

I wonder if there is a better way to group the lessons, so that the student can follow its study in a more appropriate order. It`s kind of frustrating to go through the lessons in the wrong order.

Sofia123

The “mean” word is a little confusing. I thought the ‘mean’ was used to be a noun in the second example. But in fact it is an adjective. The others are okay. I suppose, thanks to you Adam, i’ll never forget the peculiar meanings of these words :)

YaseminYb

Nice lessen thanks

“It’s a good idea to milk EngVid.com for all its English help. Your English will only improve”
This is genious xD

Marshall the spitter

I guess in #09 “milked up” more proper variant:
These are shorter, “milked up” versions of real novels that ESL students can use to improve their reading skills.

Thank you Adam.. l have learned something new today!.. it’s brilliant.👍👍😎😎

Arbee

hi there, Adam
Thank you very much for the wonderful videos; they have significantly aided my vocabulary and English comprehension.
I started viewing ingvid three days ago and have already completed your 29 beginners videos in the six topics that I have chosen for my advantage, so I think I’m already milking the knowledge out of engvid, lol ^_^
I just have one question: you mentioned that wear can also be used as a noun, but when you placed it in a sentence, you indicated that your pants will wear than you said they were worn, so aren’t you using it as a verb
That has me puzzled, so I’m hoping for some clarification. Thank you in advance.

fatima@98

7/10 great lesson thanks Adam and it needs more practice
