Hi Adam !
Glad to see you again.
The French word for savor or savour is “saveur”. Close, but a bit different ;)
Have a very nice day :)

I wonder if French people use English phrases?

Profile photo of Valery teacher Valery teacher

    I’m sure they do, Valery. I’ve heard English “absorbed” into many languages.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

    Hi Valery,
    Phrases, I’m nt sur, except some “happy birthday to you. We mostly use words.
    We leave our cars in “parkings”. We assist to “meetings”. We have a “boss”. We eat “steaks”. We go “camping”. We do “brainstorming”. We use more and more “team” to call a group of people. We do “afterworks”, read “bestsellerse”, say “bye bye”, listen to a “crooner”, use a”cutter”, do “crowdfunding”, read “fantasy”. There are hundreds of examples :)
    Browny, crubble, cupcake : many sweets stay in their original language ;)
    Bon appetit ;)

Hi Adam.This is a very useful lesson for all of us.
But I wanna ask you a question about “all or whole”.
Could you tell me which of these sentences are correct?:
I wish success to everybody for all year.
or
I wish success to everybody for the whole year.
I think that the second sentence sounds much more correct than the first one.But there is an uncertainty that disturbs me very much.
Am I right?If not could you explain it to me?
Thanks a lot!!!
P.C. I want to become an English teacher.And as it’s clear to everybody a teacher must be well-educated to be able to teach students.Note that if I’ve done any mistakes please correct them.

    Hi Asmer,

    I wish success to everybody for the whole year. is better.
    However, if ever you are unsure, you can change the sentence:
    I wish everybody a successful year.

    Whole suggests a complete period. All means more of throughout.

    I wish everybody is successful all year. This is also correct.

    Does this help?

      Thank you very much:))

      Profile photo of Asmer Pashayeva Asmer Pashayeva

Hi Adam
Would you tell me which one is correct to say,’I will wait you’ or ‘I will wait for you’

Profile photo of HOSSEINmadjidzadeh HOSSEINmadjidzadeh

    Hi Hossein.

    You need the ‘for’ in this case.
    Or, you can say I will await you., but this is a little too formal.

    Hope this helps.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

What a great lesson. Thank you so much, Adam. The piece de resistance of the whole class is its lucid explanation and usefulness. I really savor your video.

Hi Adam, could you please clarify one little question?
I can say “There is a pencil, it’s made of wood.”
Can I say “There are pencils, THEY are made of wood”?
Can I say “they” with inanimate objects?

Profile photo of Sergei Tishkov Sergei Tishkov

    Yes you can!

      Thank you! Despite having English lessons for more than a year, I got the answer for this little question just right now.

      Profile photo of Sergei Tishkov Sergei Tishkov

    Yes, Tishkov. They is the plural of he, she, or it.

    Cars are expensive because they cost a lot to produce.

    Hope this helps.
