Realy nice lesson Adam. it´s funny to say amber to the streetlights collor. Here in Brazil we say yellow instead.

    In my country…. orange

    Friday, April 24th 2020

    Yellow is a signal of attention. Not only in traffic, but also in civil construction and many other places. Orange too, but not ambar kkk

    Friday, April 24th 2020

      ambar is also. My mistake kk

    Hi Jaciel,

    Most people say orange, but if the police stop you for running the lights, they’ll call it amber ;)

Wow, this is one of the subjects or topics where I am working nowadays as a bus and truck driver although I also fly. This lesson has remembered me some words and it has improved my skills to understand some new slang words like etiquette or behaviour, yield or give way, cut…off, tailgate, honking and cruise…This was a very important and interesting video class lesson for me

Hi Adam,thanks for the class.
What is more common use, streetlight or traffic light?
Have a nice day.

Wednesday, April 22nd 2020

    Hi Eudelisgb,

    Most people will refer to the red-amber-green lights as traffic lights and the lights on the sides of the roads that light up the street as streetlights, but you might also here them use it for the traffic ones too.

    Thursday, May 14th 2020

Thanks, Adam, for this very helpful class!

Wednesday, April 22nd 2020

Traveling at high speed can be more stressful than traveling within limits. A distance for 300 miles, for example. In the end, the driver, like other people in the car, may be exhausted because of dangerous driving, speeding. If nothing worst happens.
I enjoyed this lesson. Thank you Mr. Adam.

Hi, Adam!
Thank you for the lesson, it’s very informative)
In the quiz, I saw the following: “Streetlights have three colours: red, amber, and green”. I have a question: what’s the difference between: 1) streetlights, 2)street lights and 3) traffic lights? Are these words interchangeable?

Monday, April 27th 2020

    Hi Nelly,

    Traffic lights are more commonly used to describe the ones with green, red, etc. Street lights are on the side of the road, and streetlights can be both. The best thing to do is refer to the coloured lights as traffic lights and the side ones as street lights.

    (I should have used traffic lights in the quiz ;) )

    Thursday, May 14th 2020

      Adam, many thanks for your clear reply :)

      Thursday, May 14th 2020

you’re amazing.

Monday, April 27th 2020

Very nice lesson, never heard before about amber light

Tuesday, April 28th 2020

Here in Australia, GREEN, YELLOW AND RED.

Tuesday, April 28th 2020

Hello. I got 9/10. Yay Hooray.

Tuesday, April 28th 2020

Very good lesson Mr Adam..
I think if we follow this steps when we drive,, we will be enjoying, but some people come in the road only to make us crazy…
thank you again

Wednesday, April 29th 2020

Adam, I really need your help. Please. I encountered an unknown structure “noun + to be + Ved” in a sentence “Volunteers to be infected with coronavirus for £XXX in bid to find vaccine”. It looks like I got it after all, but it is still not clear about the root of this grammar. One guy told me it’s kind of contraction of “to be going + to be + past participle”, in another book I found “to be” is used to be a modal verb and that was one way of its using. And there is a lack of lessons regarding this topic. If there is any chance could you please make it clear? Thank you

    Hi Fatman,

    This sounds more like a headline you might see in a newspaper article. They often take shortcuts to save space. If you notice, there is no main tense verb, meaning that, technically, this is not a complete sentence.

    “Volunteers (have agreed) to be infected with …”
    The words ‘have agreed’ is understood from the word ‘volunteers’, so they can be cut out.

    In terms of tense, it is infinitive passive with a future understanding (they haven’t been infected yet;they are going to be infected).

    Does this help?

    Thursday, May 14th 2020

      Omg Adam, thank you very much! Finally somebody made it clear! You are the best!

      Thursday, May 14th 2020

Hi Adam, after watching this video, it made us like the watchers are familiar with driving very well. This is very productive for learner and your students.

Tuesday, May 5th 2020

Thank u.

Thursday, May 7th 2020

Thank you everyone. Drive safe :)

Thursday, May 14th 2020

Adam, would you consider recording a vocab lesson about situations when things are worth(while) or not worth the effort, or at least trying?

Friday, May 15th 2020

    Sounds interesting, Nutondev,

    I’ll see what I can do.

    Sunday, May 31st 2020

Great ,class i learned anew vocabulary here :) lets have aride >>>>>>>

Friday, May 15th 2020

Good job, Adam!

I really appreciate your lessons, because we don’t only learn grammar rules but also knowledge for life. That’s amazing!

The part of etiquette was especially interesting for me. According to the Brazilian Traffic Code, “the biggers have to protect the smallers”. Therefore, pedestrians and cyclists usually have the right of the way here as well.

Thank you!

Hello….I’d like to brush my speaking up. Is there anyone who is interested in speaking to me on a regular basis?
My whatsapp number is +8801812788727.
Thank you.
Rasho.

Sunday, May 17th 2020

hey!
THNX for the lesson I always had a problem speaking and remembering this. Now during the virus I open my laptop and watch ENGVID :D

Monday, May 18th 2020

Thanks Adam. It’s a very useful lesson. Driving is a must in all over the world. When the light is changing from green to amber, we should stop the car. But sometimes I push the gas pedal to pass because when I suddenly stop it can be more dangerous for the car right behind me. It’s just my personal opinion. :)

Friday, May 22nd 2020

thanks for your lesson it’s very amazing i learn some new words

Monday, May 25th 2020

hi adam, what is the color of amber?

Friday, June 12th 2020

    Hi Vignesh,

    It’s a brownish orange :)

    Thursday, June 18th 2020

Thank you Adam. It is really useful information, I am going to pass my driving test. So I need to know all of this.

Saturday, June 20th 2020
