    I do enjoy your grammar-oriented videos Adam, but I had had to watch some of them more than twice, I must confess.This one was not the exception to the rule, by the way.

    Writing academic reports demands the use of formal language and more complex grammar patterns. This lesson provides a useful tool to do so.

    Very useful lesson indeed.

    Regino

      Gee! Making mistakes as usual. I had no time to proofreed my comment:

      ” . . . but I have had to watch some of them . . . ”

      Does it sound much better now to you Adam?
      Thanks in advance for your feedback.

      Regino

        Hi Regino,

        I see you’re a perfectionist :). Have had is correct given that this one is not an exception. Otherwise, had had would have worked but implied that this one was easier ;)

        Adam

    The same as you.

    Gerald Chan

Thanks, Adam. Very informative and clearly explained. Great lesson, as always.

Vicbuk

Thanks, Adam. Lesson very interesting.

At last I understand the difference between adverb participle and adjective participle, and now I see that the same sentence can be understood in two other ways. And what you said about adding “while” in the beggining of a sentence, it’s something new for me, but I thing it really can help to speak in clear way, especially for beginners. Good work Adam!Your grammar lessons are the best on engvid. As always, thank you.

HubertPoland

    Thank you Hubert.

    Just keep in mind that when speaking you can bend the rules more than when writing, so there is less pressure to use these perfectly and sometimes people might confuse you.

    Adam

Thank You Adam

Thanks, Adam

laphon

I have realised that the questionary hasn’t been so difficult to understand that the video class explanation. I have had to listen to it twice to make sure that I had understood all the concepts but I think that I will go back to listen to it again, more than twice although it hasn’t been very complicated to understand the meaning, but to use the strict grammatical rules when participle sentences are used. Thanks a lot, teacher Adam, we have learned and enjoyed another lesson which enriches our knowledge and the good sense of the English language, very useful as always.

angardiobel

Thank you Adam,I’m new here and i really like your videos.I love the way you teach us, you are a amazing teacher around the world.

    Welcome Shumail :)

    Adam

Thanks Adam. It`s very useful lesson.

isakibrahim8315

Hi Adam, thanks for your work. I got 6 correct of 9. In the second quiz, I noticed you added a complement explanation, which is an adjective clause. But what if I understand it like this: After Cal was dressed in his finest clothes, he went to the party with high confidence. Am I right this way? I still got a sentence, please correct me if I am wrong. “How did I manage to get up at 8:30 while sleeping at 4?” Thanks again!

wdlll

    HI Wdlll,

    You need to be careful with this change:
    After Cal was dressed in his finest clothes, he went to the party with high confidence.

    Grammatically, it is correct. However, the meaning changes. Firstly, you’ve introduced a time sequence (after). Secondly, saying ‘he was dressed in” means that someone else put clothes on him (passive verb). To keep it active, you would say “After he dressed in his…” and to make this a participle you would say “after dressing in …” or having dressed in …”.

    Sorry if this is confusing.

    As for the other sentence:
    How did I manage to get up at 8:30 after going to sleep at 4? or
    How did I manage to get up at 8:30 having gone to sleep at 4?

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thank you Adam :) I have one question using a conjuntion with an adverb clause. Can I use another conjunction besides WHILE, such as because, although, if, follwed by a participle-ing or ed?

Because loving super high speed, I got an accident by a super car.

smet

    Hi Smet,

    No, in the case of because or although, the relationship must be very clear and the conjunction removed (reduced). If the relationship is not clear, then you would have the conjunction, which would then require the full clause.

    Adam

Hi Adam,
thank you for this lesson it was really helpful.I feel that finally, I catch up with Participles coz the last one when you mention them I was lost.

reemabousaid

Hi Adam,
I appreciate your challenging lessons. For this quiz I scored 8/9. Hope to see any new helpful lessons.

    Hi! It looks like you’re posting from China. Your government may be blocking YouTube, where all our videos are hosted. You’ll have to use a VPN or some other way.

    engVid Moderator

      Hello Adam,

      I have 2 questions:

      Dressed in his finest clothes, Cal went to the party. Can I use “Dressing”?

      Realizing that the police were on to him… Can I use “reslized”?

      What are the rules of using “ed” / “ing” participles?

      Thanks and Happy New Year!!!

      LizC

hi there, Adam do you mind people writing you but on that domain? if you don’t, why don’t you send your email address. there is sth i’d like to share with you. arek, here’s mine: fulatatpost.pl

infulat

    Hi Infulat,

    You can email me at info @ writetotop.com

    Adam

Hi Adam,

Thanks for the lesson! I was wondering if you could say more about contexts of use for these sentences. In other words, could you give us the key to know when we can use the adverbial or relative clause at the beginning of the sentence and when we have to leave those reduced clauses just next to the modified noun?

Best,

Cristianrj

    Hi Cristianrj,

    Firstly, you never have to use them. They just make the writing more interesting and add variety. The key is to make sure the subject of the clause (even if reduced) is the same as the subject of the independent clause.

    Feeling angry, the boss yelled at everyone. — the boss was feeling angry and he (the boss) yelled.

    As for adjectives that modify nouns, these are reduced clauses that reduce to just one word, and then this word acts as a regular adjective.

    Not sure if this actually answers your question, though.

    Adam

      Hi Adam!
      didn’t get, why should I use “before” in the last question?

      Kirill.Bell

HI Adam thank you for all your lessons you are the best teacher for me thanks a lot.

RAJABISSA

thank you Adam. your video is great as usual.
could you please make a video about the phrasel verbs of the verb “wear”
wear on
wear away
wear out
wear off
wear down
and so on.

Omar Minoo

    Will do, Omar ;)

    Adam

9 out of 9 answered correctly! Great lesson. “Accused for his acts of corruption by millions of citizens, the president resigned, but the entire nation still claimed justice.”

Jose67

    Good sentence Jose ;)

    Adam

I just get 6/9. I am still confused in this lesson. It is difficult to get it.

lethitran

    You may have to watch it again Lethitran. You can also ask questions here.

    Adam

Hi! Adam
please! make a video where the indefinite and definite article may be or may not be used like in the following sentences.
1. Cut the cake with knife.
2. Cut the cake with a knife.
3. cut the cake with the knife. ( referring to the whole knife in general )

Arjit Singh

    I’ll get on that, Arjit.

    Adam

Great lesson.Great exercise. Thanks again, Adam

    oops 9/9

    jahn399

thank you.

jahn399

I follow ENGVID for about 4 years and have learnt a lot from you specifically.
Many foreign students are living and studying in English-language universities and they commonly have difficulties in “paraphrasing techniques”. How to read and understand a paragraph and then change it into my own words, is may main issue.I know it is an extensive subject, I will be very grateful,if you make a video about this subject, please.

Mak1985

Dear Sir

I want to know the difference in present participle and past participle in a sentence started with present and past i.e
1.Providing the information, I went to office….(I provided… or I who was provided)
2.Provided the information, I went to office (I who was provided the …)
pls tell the difference

errajeev2005

    Hi errajeev2005,

    Firstly, it is not past and present, but passive and active.

    As for the examples, the first doesn’t seem to make sense as is. If you write, ” Providing him with the information…” then it is is more clear.

    The second– Provided with the information, I went… — means that someone gave me the information I needed.

    Does this help?

    Adam

    Adam about the word “either”(sometimes I can hear you pronounce it /ˈiː.ðɚ/ and sometimes /ˈaɪ.ðɚ/. Is there any rule or it is going on just spontaneously?
    Thank you.

    KATRIN777

      Good question Katrin,

      Actually, there is no rule. You will hear native speakers use both. I don’t really think about it when I say it, though I think I tend to use ay more than ee.

      Adam

        Thank you!

        KATRIN777

    Well, these are not used ONLY in present perfect, but when related to the present, they don’t need a time expression. For example, single-celled organisms evolved into more complex creatures millions of years ago. (simple past).

    regardless, I will make a list of more of these types of verbs ;)

    Adam

      Yea,I just put the question in a wrong way, sorry. Thanks.

      KATRIN777

    At school they teach to put ALREADY only between HAVE/HAS and VERB. And put YET only at the end.

    KATRIN777

      Yes, they teach many things in oversimplified ways that later confuse people. It’s unfortunate.

      Adam

        Yea…

        KATRIN777

Hi Adam,
I am very glad to take the lessons from you. I am very thankful to you for these beautiful lessons.
Adam, could you please help me understand if the following sentence is correct.
‘I am your English teacher’.
I have had many discussions on which one is correct- ‘I am your teacher of English’ and ‘I am your English teacher.’
Please help me understand which one is correct?

Yashwant Kumawat

    Hi Yashwant,

    They are both correct. I am your English teacher means that this person is leading this subject. I am your teacher of English might imply that this person is teaching you the language.In most cases, the first will used for both situations.

    Does this help?

    Adam

      Thanks a lot Adam.
      Love you so much and your teaching as well.

      Yashwant Kumawat

        You are my favourite teacher. Thanks.

        Yashwant Kumawat

      Thanks a lot Adam. You are my favourite always.
      Love you so much and your teaching as well.

      Yashwant Kumawat

Adam one question more. In American English I sometimes can hear using ON instead of IN(AT).
For example: “How many players ON the team?”,
“Good luck ON school!” etc. Could you do a less-
on about the differences of using them by British and Americans or give me some more information
about it? Thanks.

KATRIN777

    Hmmm. on the team is correct (though in a group or band, but on the committee).

    On school I’ve never heard. With, at, yes, but never on.

    I will see if this lesson hasn’t already been done and get back to you.

    Adam

      (Good luck ON school!) I’ve read it under one of American teenagers video.(without doubt this guy is about 12 and speaks American very good on his video).
      I’ve heard British people say “How many players in your teem?” a few times.(And somewhere in the textbook too)

      KATRIN777

        Also I’ve heard about the next difference (on the street(American)/in the street(British).
        What about that?

        KATRIN777

          Yes, British and America English do have these differences (in on the street), and in the team (I would use this to refer to members of a team in business or school, but in sports, they are on a team).

          English can be strange :)

          Adam

          Thank you Adam.(I really thought IN THE TEAM(about sport)). It is not clear pronounced in movies.(and there’re not many of them about sport)

          KATRIN777

HI MR. ADAM you very good coaching i have your channel
i would like to tech the people grammar how i can native speaker. please send your advice to me

EMAD MAHRAN

    Hi Emad,

    Is this what you had in mind?

Ali Hyder kumbhar

Thank you for nice lesson.what is the difference between participles and adjustive phrase or adverb phrase.

umerismail

    Hi Umerismail,

    A participle is a type of phrase that contains a participle (active or passive) and can be an adjective or an adverb. An adjective phrase describes a noun and an adverb phrase completes a verb.

    I will try to make lessons on these.

    Adam

Having attended a tormenting Deutsch class for beginners, I took a break, took the quiz above, and got nine out of nine right away.

damhazana

Hi, I have a question which confuses me. Question is that If I can change this sentence from “The boy that went to Canada is getting used to his new life.” to ” The boy gone to Canada is getting used to his new life.”

As I wrote that I am confused about this because I am not sure whether I have to use -ed phrase for “be v3” or “v1”

In fact, Does “The boy gone to Canada is getting used to his new life” always mean “The boy who is gone to Canada is getting used to his new life” ? or can we say “The boy who went to Canada is getting used to his new life.” ?

Thank you…

Your lecture is excellent.

toronto

Great lesson. Thanl you. ;)

abaggrace09

Hello, Adam. First, thanks a lot for the very clear explanation of particles in English. I have the one comment and the one question.
1. In the quiz, we have the question:
“Dressed in his finest clothes, Cal went to the party with high confidence.
What type of participle is ‘dressed’?”
The possible answers are the following:
“present participle adjective
past participle adjective
past participle adverb
present participle adjective.”
I believe the fourth choice being the same as the first is just a typo. Am I right? Or, it is put here intentionally, isn’t it?
2. Here is my question. In scientific papers, I often meet the phrase ‘the data obtained’. For instance, ‘The data obtained show that this value is increased.’
What is the difference between ‘the data obtained’ and ‘the obtained data’?

NatalyaMashta

Very good lesson.Thank you,very much.

zigmund

Hi Adam, can you explain problem 3. I thought “left” is the past tense, so the action “feel” should happen in the past as well. So I chose “felt”.
Thank you very much.

AndyLong2018

Thanks for your lesson! But my question is in “3. Kelly left the interview feeling confident about her chances.” there should be a noun before the “feeling” if it is a adjective participle. if it is a adverb participle there should be”because” before “feeling”.

justinyuan

    Same question here. Kelly left the interview feeling confident about her chances. Should there be an adverb participle like while or when before feeling?

    lurker119

After watching all the grammar related videos, I finally could get a perfect score in the tests.

Thank you Adam!

Dear Sir, Adam,

Please, accept my heartiest gratitude for your unique and outstanding lectures, based on various aspects of English language teaching and learning methodology.

I think, you don’t know how many ESL, ELT students and teachers are being benefited by your lectures. It’s truly unbelievable.
I’m trying my best to enrich myself from your lectures which are uploaded in “EngVid” and “Write to the top” websites.

Thank you for your endless help for non native learners.

At last, please accept my apology for my poor writing skills.
I’m trying my best to get the speaking fluency and writing accuracy.

Thank you very very much, Sir!

AMMIE D. MACATANGAY

Many thanks, Adam for the great lesson. I have a question: When we need to change the passive to the active while we put the participle at the begining of a sentence (for instance: realized to realizing)?

Mohammad2956

Thanks for brilliant lesson. I have a query…

Main Sentence: The loans, which was distributed from early 2018, the loans were accompanied by a Dollar 15,000 grant to each farmer to buy seedlings from Govt. nurseries.

Short Sentence: Distributed from early 2018, the loans were accompanied by a Dollar 15,000 grant to each farmer to buy seedlings from Govt. nurseries

now can i say this short sentence as reduced adjective clause as well as past participle in passive sentence? Seeking your guidance here.

zahirbd

Thanks Adam and I have a question:
“ But officials remain optimistic, saying they are confident the rail link will not incur a loss.” Is “saying”in this sentence a participle?
Thank you.

or is it correct only “Standing near the window, Marie could see the entire village?.
Thank you

This is my first time taking the airport train.

I meet this sentence while learning English. I guess this sentence ommited some connections. What is the structure of this sentence. Is this adverb participle?

Hi Adam! Thank you for the great work you do for all of us. I am sorry, bu I am lost in the participles, clauses and gerund. Could you tell me what is the difference between: participles and subordinate clause? And what is the difference between active participle and gerund? Thank you.

Irinavatolina

I am still not sure when participle phrase functions as adjective or adverb. Can you make it clear?

Sokleaph

Hi Adam. Great learning from you. I`ve been learning a lot with all of you guys. Keep on doing these amazing videos.

Ivomar

Does adverb participles function as adjective modifying subject in main clause? My teacher call it verbal phrase. Does particle phrase function as adjective all the time?

Sokleaph

I got 8 out of 9. Thank you Adam for the useful lesson. I confused about Q3.
Keep going!

Thanks, Adam, Although I made 100% in the quiz, I am still confused and want to practice more. Can you make one more lesson on it?

TahseenB Bhutto

Hi Adam. Could you tell me the difference between the object complement and the object of a possessive.(Different ways to use a GERUND). How to identify object complement from others. I’ve found this on Engvid.

1.I saw Jim riding his bike (obj.com)
2.He doesn’t like your bossing him around (obj.of a possessive)

And could you please explain to me the difference between these sentences.(The grammar point)

1. I saw Tony riding his bike.
2. I saw him riding his bike.

3. I saw you coming.
4. I saw you were coming.

5. I saw Tony was riding his bike. (Is this actually a reduced adjective clause? Not sure…)

I’m sure some sentences are wrong, but not sure which ones. Not much information available regarding this on the internet.

Thank you Adam, and love your work. And thanks for the reply on my last question.
THANK YOU :)

Hello Adam,
Thanks for you lessons.
I’d like to ask about putting participles with a conjunction, would that be OK

pavelkondrin

Hello Adam,
Thank you so much for you lessons.
I’d like to ask about putting participles with and without a conjunction, would that be OK if we wrote without a conjunction:
targeted by media, she refused to cooperate
and she, targeted by media, refused to cooperate,

pavelkondrin

Hello Adam, Thank you so much. But I got 6 out of 9. I’m still a little confused it. I Wanna request you to elaborate it more.

Thanks for the quiz

Kingsley Kunda

Would anybody explain this sentence for me
3. Kelly left the interview __________ confident about her chances.
the right answer was “feeling” but why?

hayder_99

    Hopefully someone could do us a favor answering it.

    Oops, looks like I just replied with the same way as it is used for the answer.

    lurker119

    I have the same question about this but I guess this is a reduction of the adverb clause ” Kelly left the interview because he feels confident about her chances”. Someone give the correct explanation please?

    nguyenducnam

hi,adam,don’t understand question 8 and 9……….

ren133

Hi Adam.
I think even without adding anything in the sentence about “Scoring a touchdown,….”, the meaning is still still complete.
Am I missing something?

FahimMahmud

Thanks for this lesson. I have a question for you about Partciple. Can I use: Having realised that the police were on to him, Bernie quickly moved his millions off shore. Will the thanslation of this sentence change? Will it be correct?

Viktoria30

Hi Adam, thanks for this intersting lesson. I would like to know in which case “Knowing can be used as adjective.

Thanks in advance for your answer

Emmanuel Moreno Chinamula

Hi Adam,

I just so confused about how this sentence “Being unsure of what to do next, Paul decided to wait for his boss to give him instructions.” is changed from its adjective clause, could you help me with that, thank you.

LimChew

Sir, I know the logic in this lesson but, is always verb past form will always consider participle?

Arshad 1122

Although that was a hard lesson, I got 9 out of 9.

Hi Adam! Can you please explain the grammatical fifferece betweet these two sentences.
1. Battered by hail, the car collapsed.
2. Having americanized, de Nomes became “denim”.

Liza Orlova

Thanks Adam.

Hasan Soledad

★A rolling stone gathers no moss.
In these sentence rolling is adjective/participle? What’s the correct option? Please reply me.

jahid32hasan

Hello Adam! I was quite confused about what you said at the beginning when you are rephrasing the sentence, “The Marine, who was dressed in class uniform, looked like a recruitment poster”. should we need to put a comma before the subject if it’s defining adjective clause ? or it isn’t needed.
Because base on your previous lesson regarding the adjective clause, I Remembered it clearly that you said no need to put a comma if the subject is being identified by the conjunction who.

Thank you, Adam!

8/9! I got a good mark! But I didn’t understand the whole lesson, I need to learn this one more time.

Hi there!
Question about one of the examples:
– Realizing that the police were on to him, Bernie quickly moved his millions off shore;
I understand that at first he got the information that the police were on to him and after that he moved his money off shore
So can I say “Having realized that the police were on to him, Bernie quickly moved his millions off shore”.

Dmitry1987

I got 8/9.it was a nice lesson. Thank you, Adam.

aarushpro09

Hello Adam,

I have 2 questions:

Dressed in his finest clothes, Cal went to the party. Can I use “Dressing”?

Realizing that the police were on to him… Can I use “reslized”?

What are the rules of using “ed” / “ing” participles?

Thanks and Happy New Year!!!

LizC

    I have the same question ! hahahaah ! Hopelly, someone can clarify them

    PachoVict

Hi Adam, how are you doing? Regarding to the last example of an adjective participle: “The station chief was fired, meaning there’s an open position”. I associated this sentence as an adverb clause, since which is also a conjunction. Isn’t it ? How can I differentiate then ?

PachoVict

Hi Adam.How’s it going?I have been trough this lesson it seemed to me a bit tough however your explanation made me deeper comprehension.I’ll use these tips in writing and communication.Thanks a bunch!

Attila

Getting 8 of 9 scor, i need more practic, but thank you So much,

Ibne hojat

Great lecture. Could you explain the differences between these two sentences: 1) having read the book, John knew how to respond. 2) Reading the book John knew how to respond. More generally, when do we use having plus past participle in a participle phrase. Thank You.

farhad1

Hi Adam, thank you for your revealing lesson. There’s a question I want to ask you. These are two sentences that I picked from a novel:
1. People were in and out picking up snacks all day.
2.”Excuse me” said a man approaching the table.
Can I rewrite each one of them into two ways as following:
People were in and out while picking up snacks all day. / People were in and out who were picking up snacks all day.
“Excuse me” said a man while approach the table./ “Excuse me” said a man who is approach the table.
while reading the novel, I had no problem with these two sentences. But after watching your lecture, I really want to analyse them a bit deeper. I am grateful if you can take some time to read my comment and give your advice.
