    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?

    Thursday, August 31st 2017

      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

Tuesday, August 29th 2017

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

Tuesday, August 29th 2017

    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?

    Thursday, September 14th 2017

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 :)

Tuesday, August 29th 2017

    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.

    Thursday, September 14th 2017

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? ;-)

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”

Tuesday, August 29th 2017

    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?

Tuesday, August 29th 2017

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

    Wednesday, August 30th 2017

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.

Tuesday, August 29th 2017

Thanks for the lesson by the way.

I was thinking of using it like this btw

I did my homework.

I act my homework.

but that makes no sense.

:)

Tuesday, August 29th 2017

    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?

    Thursday, September 14th 2017

      okay, thanks :)

Wednesday, August 30th 2017

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

Wednesday, August 30th 2017

    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.

    Thursday, September 14th 2017

VERY NICE PRESENTATION WELL DONE MR.ADAM

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.

Tuesday, September 19th 2017

nice lesson! Thank Adam for this video!

Tuesday, September 19th 2017

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.

Wednesday, September 20th 2017

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

Regards
Martina

Wednesday, September 20th 2017

Very good website,l see that every day

Thursday, September 21st 2017

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.

Thursday, September 21st 2017

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

Saturday, September 23rd 2017

Thanks very much. I learned new things.
