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 :)

Sunday, December 30th 2018

    Thanks Annie :) I stand corrected.

    Have a great day as well.

    Saturday, January 19th 2019

Thank you so much Adam!!!It´s always a pleasure to watch your videos to learn new vocabulary ;)

Sunday, December 30th 2018

I wonder if French people use English phrases?

Monday, December 31st 2018

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

    Saturday, January 19th 2019

    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 ;)

I savoir the menu du jour!😉

Tuesday, January 1st 2019

I would mean : I savour the menu du jour but my french phone has corrected my sentence.

Tuesday, January 1st 2019

    As do you Oropezajo :)

    Saturday, January 19th 2019

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.

Saturday, January 5th 2019

    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?

    Saturday, January 19th 2019

      Thank you very much:))

      Saturday, January 19th 2019

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

Sunday, January 6th 2019

    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.

    Saturday, January 19th 2019

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.

Sunday, January 6th 2019

Hi Adam, could you please clarify one little question?

Can I say “they” with inanimate objects?

Friday, January 11th 2019
