Janyl

Thanks so much, Adam.
I got confused of the questions 1 and 9.
What is the difference between hear of and hear about?

Abdullahaae101

    Hi Abdullahaae101,

    Good question. Usually hear of means have knowledge, while hear about means have information.

    If you never heard of someone, you didn’t know they exists. If you didn’t hear about someone, you know the person but not what he/she did, for example.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thank you, Adam!

Hi Sir Adam. This may not related but this from the video, in which you explained the usages of Phrasal verb “set.” I’d like know if it’s necessary to put a preposition here?

Fear sets in ____ my find.

carlo012717

    Hi Carlo,

    No, the sentence is good as it is. Fear sets in means it takes a hold on the mind.

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

I need to study the verbs with preposition

Like

To think of
To heard of
To afraid of

I’ve got 40 Sir Adam! ????

carlo012717

    *To be afraid of

    carlo012717

    It’s a hard topic indeed Carlo.

    I’m working on it ;)

    Adam

It’s difficult

Lalananana

I’ll try to make an example like this.

The teacher of whom I’m afraid will be here.

Is my sentence correct, Sir Adam? ?

carlo012717

    :)
    Technically, yes, but not very comfortable.

    Better to be simple:
    The teacher (that/whom) I am afraid of will be here.

    Sometimes a reduced clause is better.

    Adam

Very useful. Thanks

Saeidreza

Thank you Adam for sharing the lesson!
I got 10 out 10.

Mahdi Rahimi

Hi Adam, if possible, please also explain the difference between “in which and where” “at/on which and when” in your upcoming videos. Is it correct to say: “The book where she discusses…” instead of “The book in which she discusses… “?

Saeid525

    Hi Saeid,

    I’ll do that, but in the meantime, consider the context:

    A book is not a place. It is a thing. It holds information inside it; so…
    The book in which she discusses… OR
    She discusses ___ in the book… (not where)

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

Only 6 from 10… I will try to improve my knowledge.

A.G.

    It’s all about practice A.G.. Keep at it ;)

    Adam

Hello…I’d like to brush my speaking up. Is there anyone else who is interested in speaking to me on a regular basis? My whatsapp number is +88 01812788727. Thank you. Rasho

Rasho

4/10! I can’t get the point! Crazy grammar! What can I do?

Jerry Gu

    Keep trying, Jerry. It takes time and practice.

    You can also ask questions here ;)

    Adam

7/10. I mark the 4th option in question no 9 because of the comma missing right after the (the boy).

Ajmal Andewal

    Hi Ajmal,

    Do you mean question #3?

    Adam

Thank you everyone :)

Adam

I got 7/10. Thanks a lot.

Sithu zaw123

Thank you so much. It’s fun learning.

jcal1995

Thanks

Hieu Tr๏ng Khau

Adam, help us to give the description and function of the following question:
” I will sell the house to whoever comes first”

the underlined clause is “whoever comes first”

tawo

    Hi Tawo,

    whoever comes first — this is a noun clause acting as an object to the preposition ‘to’
    to whoever comes first– this is a prepositional phrase acting as complement to sell the house.

    Does this help?

    Adam

thanks teacher , i got 90%

koky111

Dear respected teacher,
I meant question #9. The comma is missing right after the subject (the boy). Could you please explain it.
Thanks

Ajmal Andewal

    Hi Ajmal,

    The boy I was talking about is over there.
    The boy about whom I was talking is over there.

    In both cases you don’t know which boy I am talking about until I identify him. So as this is an identifying adjective clause, there is no comma.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thanks

@shadhin

Thank you!

MD WAQAR HASHMI

Why examples in the video need to add comma?For example,in”The book,in which she discusses her long career,is a real eye-opener.”,The book hasn’t been identified.

Happy55

    Hi Happy,

    You’re right, it is not identifying the book, just says what’s in it in a general way. To identify, would need to name it. Non-identifying adjective clauses are between commas.

    Does this help?

    Adam

I thought I understood the subject, but I had a hard time solving the question, what can I do? Please help me.

sedefyildizzz

    Hi Sedefyildizzz,

    Watch the video again and try the quiz again.

    You can also ask spefic questions here.

    Adam

THANK YOU GEAR ADAM!

Zohreh Moradi

Hi teacher! Could you explain 7th one please? I guess I had to choose ”for” because ”cast for” might be correct usage for cast verb, but i am not sure.

Emrecancelik

Such an interesting stucture! A little theatrical/poetic, imo)) I should practise it more often. Thank you Adam!

Lolamen
