    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?

      Hi Grace,

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

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

Profile photo of Saeed Nazari Saeed Nazari

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

Profile photo of Saeed Nazari Saeed Nazari

    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?

    Profile photo of Adam 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 :)

Profile photo of Cecca 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.

Profile photo of Ricardo Schubert 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?

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.

Profile photo of Yaqob 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?

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

Profile photo of Marcos Bevitori Marcos Bevitori

    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.

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?

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.

Profile photo of Lidibka2655 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.

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.

    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.

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.

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

May I ask what is VPN ?

Profile photo of yudian711 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 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
