longloveu

    Hello! I am a medical student from China.Can I ask you a question about this website? How can I watch these videos in mainland of China?

    Grace-liu

      Hi Grace,

      China blocks YouTube, so you may need to use a VPN to get around that.

      Adam

Well done mr.Adam!!!

hi Adam
How are you?
i wonder what is diffrence between

saeednazari

hi Adam
How are you?
I wonder what is the difference between this two phrases? Hold it back and Keep it in
It’s about handling anger.
Thank you

saeednazari

    Hi Saeed,

    In terms of emotions, these expressions essentially mean the same thing– don’t express the emotion. Hold it back can be a bit softer, meaning you can let the person know you’re angry, but don’t show the full level of your anger. Keep it in means don’t say/do anything.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Fantastic lesson Adam, thank you! Can I ask you something very specific?
Immagine you are the owner of a guest house: what would you say to greet your guests, to ensure that they’re having a comfortable stay, what would say to say goodbye when they’re leaving and thanks them for choosing your guests house? Can I suggest a lesson about this? Thank you :)

Cecca

    Good idea Cecca. I’ll see what i can do about that.

    In the meantime, best to be simple and direct:

    Welcome to our guesthouse. We hope you enjoy your stay with us.

    We hope you’ve enjoyed your stay. We’d love to have you here again soon.

    Adam

very good Adam. Thanks.

Luigi

Great lesson Adam, as always!!! Thumb up!!! :-)

I booked once upon a time in a big city-hotel, and in the room was these amenities (see at my profile-photo) fresh apples every day. A very nice service, right? ;-)

Ralph-GER

    Indeed, Ralph ;) Not very common though.

Pedir para o recepcionista guardar a chave do quarto I posso falar (save my keys).
Ask to for front desk save my keys room Can I to say “save my keys”

Ricardo Schubert

    Hi Ricardo,

    If you mean that you don’t want to carry your keys with you, you can say “Can you please hold my room key for me.”

    Is this what you had in mind?

    Adam

      Thank you so much for your answer Adam! :)

      Cecca

I can’t see the video, why…

Foxdd

    Hi! It looks like you’re posting from China, where YouTube is blocked. You will have to use a VPN to see the videos.

Good morning

I found a page on Engvid.

It has verbs that are powerful than common ones.

For Example

Instead of writing did.

I can write act, apply, activate.

The title has alternatives.

I may have misunderstood that.

Yaqob

    Hi Yaaqob,

    Did is a very general verb while the others are more specific.You also have to keep in mind collocations, which are word pairings that always go together.

    I did my homework.
    I completed my homework.
    I finished my homework.

    Does this help?

    Adam

      okay, thanks :)

      Yaqob

Great advices about waitress:-)

Sonia1234

Hi, Adam. Thanks for the video but I have a question: how much to tip for bellhop and maid services? Any suggestions ?

GrumpyHungry

    Hi Marcos,

    Good question. Firstly, keep in mind where you are. In the US or Canada, for example, a bellhop usually gets $1-$2 per bag he brings to your room. For a maid, $2-$5 per night. Of course, more high-end hotel staff expect somewhat higher tips. Ultimately, it’s whatever you feel comfortable with. In Canada $1 and $2 are coins, so some people feel it’s too little so they give $5 regardless of bags or nights.

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

VERY NICE PRESENTATION WELL DONE MR.ADAM

drhazim

Hello,Adam
Could you talk about Intensifiers and Mitigators (for adjectives)? Thank in advance.

    I’ll get on that Sabina :)

    Adam

Thanks a lot for the lesson!
Out of topic: why do you (and not only you:-)) pronounce etc. as [iksetre]? not as [etsetre], or [etsetrae]? Is it a kind of a local pronounciation or a normal, correct variant?

Cam

thanks.

arthurkomiyama

Thank you for your lessons, Adam. I have unusual question.. Some time ago i had a big problem at reception of the Hotel. I tried to ask them “to save” my luggage when i would be travel (about 1-2 days) in other city. Later i thought to return in that hotel again and continue my vacation. And i did not want to take all my luggage in that short trip – i want to leave Luggage at the hotel. They could not understand me for a long time. May i ask you, what should i say them at that reception? May be i said them wrong verb.. I like to travel and this problem is common for me. Thank you, Adam.

Lidibka2655

    Hi Lidibka,

    You can ask them to “hold” your luggage for you for a couple of days until you come back to pick it up.

    “Can you please hold my luggage for me for a few days?”

    Or you can say “Can I leave my luggage here for a few days?”

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

nice lesson! Thank Adam for this video!

Trangnguyen99

Thank you Adam . It is a useful lesson and added to my information .It was surprised for me to know that tips are spread in the western countries , I always think that tips are part of my eastern culture . Anyhow , it is not something good at all.

Samiaessawy@hotmail.com

Hi Adam
Thanks for useful information I am a bigener I need you help about which courses should I start with

Regards
Martina

Martina Gad11

    Hi Martina,

    Start with the beginner videos while you build up your vocabulary. Once you are comfortable with the intermediate lessons, start watching them.

    Adam

Very good website,l see that every day

chenyusheng

Very useful lesson when we are in holiday resorts because sometimes you have to look for the names of the different staff jobs and being sure that it’s not easy to remember all of them. It has been a great explanation of the names like frills, bellhop, valet and does not disturb tag and so others. Thanks a lot, teacher Adam, enjoying and learning English with you video classes.

angardiobel

Thank you, Adam. I have a question. How can I know that how much I should give to as tip?

liding

    Hi Liding,

    Firstly, keep in mind where you are. In the US or Canada, for example, a bellhop usually gets $1-$2 per bag he brings to your room. For a maid, $2-$5 per night. Of course, more high-end hotel staff expect somewhat higher tips. Ultimately, it’s whatever you feel comfortable with. In Canada $1 and $2 are coins, so some people feel it’s too little so they give $5 regardless of bags or nights. In restaurants, usually 15%, taxi about 10%

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

      Thank you for your reply, Adam.

      liding

      If a restaurant adds 15% service charge to your bill, should you give them an additional 15% as a tip???

      Egghead

Thanks very much. I learned new things.

Cho Cho Thet Lwin

May I ask what is VPN ?

yudian711

    It stands for “Virtual Private Network”. Like a proxy, a VPN is a service that lets you connect to the Internet without revealing where in the world you are from. You can use VPNs to get around geographically restricted content—e. g. to watch YouTube in China, or to watch UK-only video from Australia.

Hi,
can we say the reservation is FOR my name or only UNDER is correct? The same with the table at the restaurant – when I confirm to my boss can I say the reservation is for your name?
Thanks

NoorMajed

Goodevening, teacher. The title of this lesson is “Staying AT a hotel”, but at the very end of the introductory paragraph I find “your next stay IN a hotel”. What is the difference between “staying AT” and “staying IN”?

Hi. Adam It is a good lecture. I like your clear voice and appearance. Thanks

Yundoo

Hi Adam.I hope you’re doing well. I watched several videos and I enjoyed it a lot. Your sentences are clear and easy to understand. However, I do have one request if you don’t mind. Being a trainee lawyer in Lebanon, it is very essential to write or draft contracts using the right punctuation (especially commas) as I was french educated and I wasn’t able to learn all the basic rules properly. So I had to count on my self. Is there any video related to this lesson(especially for complex & compound sentences)? If not, is it possible to have one anytime soon?. Thank you

Raniagh

Thank you teacher. I think it is going to help me a lot when I travel.

marce0329

Again,I try to answer,but already the correct answer has been checed on the display.

Hello Adam, thanks for this lesson. I understand you very easily and I hope to make progress this way. I would have been very interested to know what they do with your food if you don’t tip. Maybe in another lesson ?

Good Mrs Brown
