Thank you very much Mr Adam


    Well, as far as I can see talking about the stock market is complicated.

    Getting familiar enough with all these terminology, however, it is a must for those planning to invest in the Stock Market soon.

    By the way, have you ever invested in the stock market Adam? You handle the terminology with great ease.

    Just one more question, do you MAKE or DO an investment?

    Tough lesson, but interesting.

    Have a marvelous week!


      Excuse, the question is not adressed to me, but the answer is ‘ make an investment’. Have a good day, dude!


        …Make money, etc…


          Video Time (6:46)… ‘make some money’…


          …’make some investment”…*


      Hi Regino,

      Yes, I have played the market, but it’s nerve-wracking so I stopped :)

      You can make an investment, but ideally you will invest in something.


Thank you Adam. Very useful lesson.


90%! Good class! Thanks Adam!


70% first time done! Thanks you very much Mr Adam!


For me…it was very difficult lesson but good study. Thank you, Adam :)


Great skill of teaching ,Adam

Thank you….


Thank you so much Adam your lesson is quite difficult but however I got 7 correct out of 10 . I am happy with my score. Thank you Adam and Engvid.com


Thank You Mr. Adam


Thank you very much. Your explanation is easy to understand although the topic is total new to me.


thank u very much Adam, i got 90 scores :)


I would like to appreciate you Adam for touching upon this vocabulary.Thank you very much for that:)
I have chosen “Capital market and Securities laws” subject for my higher studies.Even though this topic is confusing to understand,i really enjoy it in fact i have to deal with this kind of concepts daily.
I am quite curious about the bull sculpture which is generally put up in front of stock market.I don’t know whether i am right or wrong but i think it is considered as an auspicious sign for overall trading of stock market because bullish phase means market is going up which is a good sign.So i think we can relate it in this way.
Anyway,Adam your overall explanation was excellent as usual :-)Many thanks for that once again.
I would like to get a video on LAW VOCABULARY RELATED WITH COURT.


    Thanks Tejalkk, I’ll see what I can do about the legal vocab lesson :)


Good for you)

tania tania

bond: a sort of government spy! LOLLLL


Thanks, Adam.
But I have a doubt.
“I will be back soon.”
then “I want to be back to… (a place)”
any grammar mistake here? esp. “to be back to”?
Thanks if you could help. :)


    Hi Sophie,

    I would say I want to get back to… or go back to… or return to…


Fantastic lesson Adam, thank you. I am really thinking about investing money these days.


Great lesson!If someone wants to communicate with me, please add me on Skype cowberry120898


Thanks Adam, now i’am ready to invest a lot money to get rich!lol!!!


Thanks a lot, Adam. 80% i think not bad for my knowledge in finance )) Exelente lesson.


Thanks sir for your effort it was an interesting topic :)
But I was wondering if u could please make a lesson about the news because they always use a high level vocabulary and I dont understand a word lol xD and also a lesson about the babies stuff and what they need because I dont know how to talk about them in English,,

Thanks sir you R the BeST ♡

Rena jackson

    Hi Rena,

    I’ll get on those ideas :)


hello sir i am so happy that i came to know a lot of things from your lessons. i want an email address of your to take advice for my future.


Great Class Adam!! I have to learn more about this 60 :(


Hi Adam,Thanks for your lesson.I got 100 score:)


I think it’s named BEAR MARKET because bears are clumsy and not very smart…am I right?


    Hi Katrin,

    It’s a good idea, but bears are actually quite agile. It’s the way they attack and bring prey down with their claws. :)


      Agree, Adam.


Hello everyone, I wish to all of you have a nice day. I am a newcomer to this website, and I would like to ask a question that I have had for a long time. My question is about writing in English. Could we deliberately replace words in a sentence in order to make it seem more complex? For instance, intead of saying “I am sad,” could I say “I am dismal?” And instead of saying “You have a good behavior,” could I say “Your demeanor is bounteous?(I’m aware that those sentences are a bit distinct).” And I know that exists a particular context when trying to write certain words, but as far as I’m concerned, English is the most rich language in the world with about 250.000 words. Anyway, I appreciate your attention to my question. Thanks.


    Yes, you can — but don’t overdo it, or else someone will tell you to put away the thesaurus! People can tell when you’re using longer words to seem smart, especially when you’re not 100% sure about the way the words are used. (For example, a native speaker would say something like “I am feeling dismal” and “Your conduct is exemplary.”)

    “Demeanour” means someone’s face, manner, attitude — less concrete than “behaviour”. Like “He said nothing, but his sinister demeanour made me want to leave.” “Bounteous” means “abundant” or “generous”, not just generally good. Like “We can look forward to a bounteous harvest this year.”

      All right. I got it, thanks for your time. I hope a happy day for you. :)


    Hi Anthony,

    First of all, welcome :)

    Just to add a point about language: complexity comes from sentences more than words. Using big words doesn’t make your writing better. Actually, it makes it less accessible to more people. It’s good to know these words in order to read a wider variety of books, but not necessarily for writing (unless you are writing poetry of some literary novels).

    Hope this helps :)


heloo Mr Adam. Can you give me any lesson about on the “IF CONDISHENAL”??


    Will do Grigol. In the meantime, so a search in the box at the top of the page and you will see some lessons already available.


Great class Adam, but i think that the stock market is not too good for investment in Brazil nowadays

    Hi guy, why my comment wasn`t approved?

    Faustino de souza alves

      Possibly because you hadn’t commented before! First-time commenters need their comments manually approved.

        Ok, thank you and have a nice day.

You’re the best always Adam Thank you so much <3
For my colleges Who needs to practice his Accent , you can be in touch on my FB account


Thank you


Excellent explanation Adam, please could you make a video about “Adverbs Collocation”?


    I’ll see what I can do Valgarv ;)


Thanks Adam! Important subject with interesting vocabulary very well explained!

Yields are generally defined to a certain period of time, such as one year, isn’t it?

Fabio Cicerre

    Hi Fcicerre,

    The yield is the gain, but it is usually expressed in terms of annual gain. Yield itself does not mean a time period.

    Does this help?


      Hi Adam!

      Thanks for the reply.

      Yes, you made this very clear.

      Fabio Cicerre

nice lesson, thank you Adam


I got 10 correct out of 10 questions again. With these good lessons it is easy. Congratulations and thanks for you Adam and the engVid.


I learned a lot with this video. There are a lot of theories about the origin of Bear Market and Bull Market terminology. I just though of one that sounds funny but make sense. Since Bears are great hibernators maybe it means that during negativism and pessimism we are forced to save more and invest less, a kind of “financial hibernation” quite what happened in the great depression.


    Hi Iconica (new name? :) )

    I like this theory. ;)


      Hello Adam, thank you for your videos they are awesome, and yes, I changed my name, ;).


It was not easy to learn the terms of the stock market for me. I have had to review again and over again this lesson for understanding and memorizing them.
Thank you, Adam for this interesting lesson.


Thanks for that


thank you Adam it was very useful

You are my hero!I petty like watching your video.

Vincent chen

Thank you!


very good lesson!


Good lesson!


Great Adam! Explanation very clear, easy to understand and simple. I think you will be an awesome finance teacher. I just got 100%!!! if you can come with more securities terms like that I will greatly appreciate it, just to refresh my mind in finance.


I am very passionate about that field. I think if you come with more topics, I will put more interest on it. I created my portfolio in CNNMoney in order to practice, but sometimes I didn’t have good understanding in term of strategy.


How are you? I hope you’re doing well!
I’d like to make a request for a video about the preposition “to” followed by a “gerund”, as the following examples show:
She admitted “to having” stolen the car.
He confessed “to having slept” through most of the film.
She gets “to fretting” if I stay away from home too long.
I know that “to” is acting as a preposition, and similar to other prepositions, the verb must be followed by a “gerund”. However, sometimes this gets really confusing ’cause we’re so used to using to+base form (infinitive) that it sometimes seems really awkward.
Looking forward to hearing from you and watching the next videos.


    I’ll get on that Henry :) I know it gives lots of people trouble.


Hello, …. yes? Can I speak with Mr “Michael Adam Douglas” please? And who wants talk to him? An old toothless yuppie from the 80’s you know, I still have some stocks from that time, I want to know if he is still interested on buying them!…..KLONG….?? Hello, ?? Hello? Are you there……? Hellooooo?!?

goog lerning with mr. adam
I hop contacte with evry one hwo spack english well


Learn well with mr.Adam
I hope to communicate with everyone who speaks English
By scype: amerbathich


Hi Adam! Is there any list of verbs after which ME,HER,THEM,HIM,US,YOU must be used with TO? For example:
I spoke TO him; I called her.
Thank you.


    Hi Katrin,

    I’m not entirely sure I get the question. You can say I spoke to Linda. Any verb that involves an action directed at a person can take to + pronoun.

    give, take, bring, etc.


      Adam but CALLED action too! I can’t get that…


        Oh, ok. You’re having trouble with transitive and intransitive verbs. Transitive verbs, such as called, need an object (so no ‘to’). Intransitive verbs don’t take an object, so if directed at someone, they need a preposition.

        John laughed at/shouted at/pointed to Bill.
        John cried to Bill
        John hit Bill.
        John insulted Bill.

        Does this help?




Hi Adam, thank you so much for this new lesson, it really helped a lot. I’m recommending engVid to my friends. It’s a very good tool for us who are learning English. You’re an excellent teacher as well your colleagues. Is there a way that I can contact somebody to practice my English?. Thanks for all your great lessons.


    Thanks Sahuayo,

    You can ask everyone here in the forum. I’m sure someone will be happy to talk to you.


i got 90; Suwun yo dam adam


last task, it must be “portfolio”, not fund, why??


    Hi Mukti,

    Actually, fund is the correct answer. It is managed by someone else. Portfolio is the collection of investments you own.


I really love this website! lol


Thank you Adam, this lesson helps me a lot to understand how the Stock Markets work.


Excellent lesson Adam….

If possible, I’d like to watch a lesson about Foreign Trade: Import and Export Goods, Custom Clearance, etc.

Thank you!

Enilson B@tist@

    I’ll see what I can do Enilson.

Adam one more question. The sentence:
– I just try to leave a little more room for diversity(room means opportunity).
Is this sentence OK or there is some more common way to say that?
Thank you.


    Hi Katrin,

    room here is more about flexibility (which includes opportunity). It’s about not limiting yourself.


      Thank you. The sentence is OK..?


        Yup, it’s good.


    Hey Katrin) please write to me


Excellent !!!


Thank you everybody. Good luck with your investments, whether in the markets or in English, or in everyday life ;)
