thank u Adam for this lesson
I hope that all grammar mistaks become acceptable like mixing up the use of “as” and “like” :3

Saturday, April 13th 2013

    Thank you for the lesson, Adam! I have a question. 7 task(Jackson has been studying as though there were no tomorrow) Why is “as though” here?

    Monday, November 18th 2013

      because you are comparing an unreal situation .
      in this case, you use either ‘as if’ or ‘as though’. =)

      Thursday, November 28th 2013

    Nice lesson,extremely clear and very good examples.But “up to them” and the aureola gesture?

    Wednesday, February 12th 2014

God bless you..each lesson is better than the previous.

Wish you the best Adam

Saturday, April 13th 2013

Interesting and useful to be more confident and careful when using these expressions.

Saturday, April 13th 2013

As a Polish learner I’m glad to see you again :-)

Saturday, April 13th 2013

    Yeah, right. As a English learner from Poland I’m glad to see you again. ;-)

    Saturday, April 13th 2013

THANK you very much Adam for helpful lesson. I was looking for this lesson for many years. I’ve got 8/10

Saturday, April 13th 2013

thank you Adam, this lesson is very interesting and useful like all your previous lessons.
I kindly ask you if you could make a lesson about introduction IT- because i find it very difficult to deal with .

Saturday, April 13th 2013

    Hi Obay,

    Can you give me an example?


    Wednesday, April 24th 2013


Saturday, April 13th 2013

You’re helping me a lot with your classes, thank you very much!

Saturday, April 13th 2013

Thanks Adam for this very nice show. I wonder if you could comment on “such as”.

Saturday, April 13th 2013

    Hi Ricardo,

    We use ‘such as’ when we are about going to give an example:

    I play sports such as hockey, basketball, and soccer.

    Hope that helps

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      Can I say

      “I play sports like hockey, basketball, and soccer.”?


      Thursday, June 29th 2017

Thanks, Adam. I always asked myself about this and I hadn’t known the answer.

Saturday, April 13th 2013

I think question 7 should be: Jackson has been studying as IF there were no tomorrow, according to what Adam had explained… I did not understand why the answer is “Jackson has been studying as THOUGH there were no tomorrow”…Is it really correct?

Saturday, April 13th 2013

    I looked into a dictionary and “as though” is similar with “as if”.

    Sunday, April 14th 2013

      In fact, I think “similar to” is correct(not “similar with”)

      Sunday, April 14th 2013

        Thank you for explanation, arinamg.

        Sunday, April 14th 2013

      Thank you for the explanation, arinamg!That’s very kind of you!

      Monday, April 15th 2013

        Hi Janilza,

        Arinamg is correct. ‘as if’ and ‘ as though’ are the same. as though is a little more formal.


        Wednesday, April 24th 2013

          Thank you, dear Adam! I need to say that you are an excellent teacher. One of my favorites!

          Sunday, April 28th 2013

Thank you so much.

Saturday, April 13th 2013

i got 4 correct outta 10 but no problem..that isn’t means i didn’t understand you..i got what you explained..i got the meaning..but maybe i’m a little bit confused..by the way can i say (as i do)instead of (as do i)thanks..and gimme an advice..

Saturday, April 13th 2013

    Hi Hussein,

    ‘as I do,’ and ‘as do I’ mean the same thing. As do I is very formal and is usually used to agree with someone:

    A: I think English is important these days.
    B: As do I (I do too)

    Hope that helps.

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      Adam, thanks for this lesson. It’s really very useful. But now I have a question. What is the difference between ‘As do I’ and ‘So do I’?

      Monday, October 7th 2013

        I think “as do I” is similar to “As do I” like “I do to”. please remember about eliptical sentence :)

        Monday, February 9th 2015

Thanks, great class!

Saturday, April 13th 2013

great thanks Mr Adam,

really i enjoy learning english here, it’s great website for everyone who want to learn english
Big thanks for all who helping us he on that website

please: could you explain to me why we don’t use “as” in thise sentence ( 6. I’m not the only one to agree with the decision; the manager agrees as well, ______ his staff).

Saturday, April 13th 2013

    Hi Izzyazima,

    Yes, this is a little confusing. You have to be careful here to notice that ‘as well’ means the same as ‘also’. Because of the comma (,) I didn’t mean as well as. I meant that the manager also agrees AND the staff does too. That’s why I need the second verb ‘as does.’

    Is that clear?

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      yeah thanks a lot Mr Adam,
      it’s clear now :) your difficult quiz is very support, we must focus for complete understanding.

      Wednesday, April 24th 2013

Thanks Adam, very interesting lesson, excellent explanation

Saturday, April 13th 2013

Thanks a lot ,and i hope you will do a lesson on that unreal situation.

Saturday, April 13th 2013

    hi medirock, you can search subjunctive on ENGVID.com and you will find it. He has already recorded a video lesson for you.:)

    Sunday, March 29th 2015

I got 60/100 :(
It seems no one has mentioned his or her score in the above comments; they might scored as I did.

Saturday, April 13th 2013

thanks Adam for this nice lesson.
wanna ask: why did you say: ” … there were no tomorrow” not “there was no tomorrow”, why were not was?

Saturday, April 13th 2013

    Hi raed15. Because in that situation, the clause is a subjunctive one. You cannot use “was” in subjunctive.
    Adam has recorded a video lesson about subjunctive. You can find it on his youtube channel.

    Monday, April 15th 2013

    Hi Raed,

    Quang answered correctly. In the subjunctive you should use ‘were’ not ‘was’. You can see my lesson on that. But also keep in mind that in informal speech, many people use ‘was’ so don’t worry too much about this.

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

thanks a lot.

Saturday, April 13th 2013

I have a doubt. Why you say as if there were no tomorrow, if it is singular?. It would not be as if there was no tomorrow?, thanks.

Sunday, April 14th 2013

    Hi Jose,

    In the subjunctive you should use ‘were’ not ‘was’. You can see my lesson on that. But also keep in mind that in informal speech, many people use ‘was’ so don’t worry too much about this.

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

Hi Adam, I would like to ask you a simple question.
Is “As do I” more frequent in usage than “So do I” ??

Sunday, April 14th 2013

    Hi Poslegg,

    Actually, no. As do I is pretty formal, so most people don’t use it. So do I is more common.

    Good question though.


    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      By the way, Adam, wanted to recommend you two themes, which can be really helpful for people, maybe it’s advanced level but question remains a question, how about:
      1.) Mixed conditionals (i.e. Third + Second conditionals)
      2.) Punctuation marks, like semicolon, for example I still don’t know when I can use comma and when it’s semicolon.
      Thanks in advance Adam, you are cool teacher, keep up the good work.

      Thursday, April 25th 2013

I got 100. Thanks Adam!

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

thanks thanks a lot! could you help me comparing among repaired, renewed, restored and renovated???help me, please!

Monday, April 15th 2013

    Hi Oliver,

    repair- something is broken or not working well, so you fix it.

    restore- for example an old car- you make it like new again.

    renew- when your membership at a gym or club ends, you renew it, or start it again for another year.

    renovate- make changes to the original. for example if you renovate a room in your house, you make it like new, but different than it was (take down a wall, add features, etc.)

    Hope that helps

    Hi Masoud,

    Yes, this is a little confusing. You have to be careful here to notice that ‘as well’ means the same as ‘also’. Because of the comma (,) I didn’t mean as well as. I meant that the manager also agrees AND the staff does too. That’s why I need the second verb ‘as does.’

    Is that clear?

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      Thank you for your response.I got what you meant,but Is following sentence with no comma correct?
      “the manager agrees as well as his staff” correct?

      Wednesday, April 24th 2013

Thank you so much !!!It helps me a lot !!

Sunday, April 21st 2013

hi Adam,
thanks for this lesson.
can you give us lesson about difference between three words yet,also and again please?

Sunday, April 21st 2013

    Hi Kays2mee,

    I’ll get on that :)

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

hi…sir thanks a lot
i had been having a problem with using as & like but now i’m comfortable with them

Sunday, April 21st 2013

sir…….if you don’t mind , could you teach me about “as+verb+subject”? plz…………

Sunday, April 21st 2013

    Hi Thusan,

    Do you mean for comparing? ‘as’ has other uses too.

    As the sun rose, the bird began to sing.

    Means at the same time.

    let me know if that helps.

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      I have a question. Basically the sun rose before the birds started to sing, right? I mean, the sun have to rise, and if it isn’t, the birds won’t sing. :)

      For another example:

      “As the sun rose, I saw that the whole village had been destroyed.” — There was a fight in the night, and after all the sun rose, and then I was able to see what has left from the village. — And one question about present perfect and past perfect tenses I used. — Did I use them correctly? I think I understand them a little bit more now, but I’m not sure.

      And also I have one more question concerning your example — Do the tenses in the first and the second part of the sentence have to match? Or if we use “as” here, the verb has to be in the past form. — that’s why “as the sun rose”.

      Thursday, April 25th 2013

      hi sir……
      i’m apologizing for being late to replay & i must tell you the reason why i’m late because i had sick for last week therefore i was unable to see the mail sir…..
      In this lesson you mentioned ;
      ‘A;i like swimming ,B;as do i’
      here ‘as+do+i’ is = ‘as+verb+subject’ this’s what i request kindly to explain sir…..

      Friday, May 3rd 2013

Hi, Adam. First of all, let me tell you you’re pretty good teacher, very understandable when you’re speaking. I have a suggestion to make. Could you make a lesson on the verbs finishing by ‘ing’ after ‘to’ like in the sentence ‘looking forward to seeing you’ or ‘this is my approach to teaching you’. I’m trying to find the answer since ages but no way. I’m French from Avignon (France) and I’d be very grateful if you answered. Thanks.

Sunday, April 21st 2013

    Hi Patple,

    I’ll try to make a lesson on that, but for now, just remember that the ‘to’ in these examples is not the same as the infinitive ‘to’. It’s a preposition that’s used to point to something.

    Looking forward to– to what? to seeing you. It’s very specific to certain expressions.

    Good idea though. I’ll work on it.

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      Hi Adam. At the moment I’m in Rochester NY but I keep studying your lessons and the other teachers ones. I am still very happy with them. I hope you’re keeping in mind the lesson on the preposition ‘to’ followed by ‘verbs + ing form’. Thanks a lot.

      Friday, May 31st 2013

Adam teaches like a father, simple and easy to understand. Keep doing this great job.

Sunday, April 21st 2013

It was very difficult.;
But I’ve got 1o correct out of 10.

Adam, Thank you.

Saturday, June 1st 2013

‘I like it’ – ‘So do I’ / I do too / Me too (spoken Am. Eng.) … But: ‘I like it same as you do’ …

2. Allen’s speeches sound a lot _______ his father’s.
5. ________ chief nurse, I also believe that the operating room must be as clean as possible.
6. I’m not the only one to agree with the decision; the manager agrees as well, ______ his staff.

Tuesday, June 18th 2013

    Hi adam,

    Your episode was so amusing, but when I started in an exam I got 7 out of 10.
    I wanted to explain my question :

    2. Allen’s speeches sound a lot _______ his father’s.
    My answer is : as ,because father’s is a shortcut to the word ” father is ”

    thank you so much , Adam

    Tuesday, June 18th 2013

Your lesson is excellent. I do not understand why in the question 9, it is incorrect to use “as” if “a little girl who has lost her doll” has a clause.

Tuesday, June 18th 2013

Interesting lesson! It’s very nice of you Adam.
Thanks alot. Could you help me to distinguish day and date, please?. I’m little bit confused.I hope to receive answer from you soon.

Tuesday, July 16th 2013

Hi ,Adam I’ve got a question , can you please tell me why do you say though at the end of your sentences ? Because I thought ”though” means the same like as ”if” :)

Saturday, July 20th 2013

Thank you!!!

Can I also use “So do I” instead of “As do I”? If yes, what’s the difference between them?

Monday, July 22nd 2013

i got 9 out of 10 thanks

Wednesday, September 4th 2013

Hi Adam, I just failed on your test :(

Monday, September 9th 2013


Tuesday, September 10th 2013

hi Adam! thanks you for your teachings!
could you tell me if this sentence is correct..
If I had been born in UK, I would have spoken English as a native language…
I hope your answer :)

Tuesday, September 10th 2013

hi Adam, thanks for the lesson.
could you help me to explain about Conditional sentences type I, II and III. Please teach me how to understand it simply, thanks before.

Thursday, September 19th 2013

Thks for that lesson.

Well, I’ve a doubt. As you said, we usually use AS + a clause and LIKE + noun.

As far as I know, if you’re talking about professions, you can not say: I’m working like an engineer. You must say: I’m working as an engineer. That’s a comparison, isn’t it? And it is AS + noun.

I guess that’s an exception. Are there more of it?


Thursday, September 19th 2013

Nice lesson Adam! I was wondering if you can explain a little bit more about the follow structure:
-as adjective/noun/adverb as-
Thank you so much! Greetings from El Salvador.

Friday, September 20th 2013

Thank you, Adam. It is very usefull lesson like like your previous… ;)

Monday, September 30th 2013

hi i’m rick I’ve been using this website to improve my grammar composition.
Thank You

Saturday, October 5th 2013

Hi Adam!

Why in the №4 is there no article “a”?
We always use an article “a/an” with the profession: a doctor, a teacher, a chief nurse, no?

Thanks in advance.

Tuesday, October 29th 2013

thanks adam

Friday, December 6th 2013

Hello Adam, I am Walker, I did not answered the 4 and 5 questions correctly. The 4th: I chose the “like”, because I didn´t find a clause….For the 5th in the same way: as does a chief nurse….or, like the chief nurse
Could you help me?
Thank you in advance

Thank you for this lesson, Adam. I hadn’t understood the difference between “We, as teachers, (…)” and “We, like teachers,…” yet. Your explanation makes it very clear.

Monday, December 16th 2013

Thank you so much teacher Adam. you covered most of my doubts; But there is one more thing I wish I could know. would it be ok if I said : ‘as I said before or like I said before’. I might be obvious for you, but in my case I have heard both of them so many times that, consequently, it is not clear. By the way, did I you ” consequently” right?

Tuesday, December 31st 2013

It not ok

Saturday, January 4th 2014

Hi Adam. Thanks for the lesson. I often do mistakes while using “like” and “as.” Is that correct to say “She wanted to help others as her mom did”? I would say “like her mom did, but after your lesson I feel that I should say “as.” Is that because we cannot use did with like? Thanks in advance.

Tuesday, January 7th 2014

I have enjoyed this video as I have enjoyed others :)

Sunday, January 12th 2014

I got 8/10 in the quiz :)

Saturday, January 25th 2014

Thank you so much for the lesson, but I have a question:First way is easy, the second one is easier, the third- easiest. Is there a degree of comparison like- The fourth way is more easier(but not easiest)? In Russian we have something like this.

Monday, February 3rd 2014

Dear Adam, thank you for this helpful lesson .
Could you tell me if there are other words used for comparisons .

Thursday, February 6th 2014

Hello friends!

Thanks Adam for your precious lessons

Wednesday, February 12th 2014

I didn’t understand the number 9 part of the quiz where the correct answer is ”he cries ‘like’ a little girl who has lost her doll”. I chose ‘as’ because ”the little girl…” is a clause…isn´t it? Anyway, it sounded more correct to me with ”like”.

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

Friday, June 27th 2014

Hi Adam can u help me in the following sentence
He walks ——- He is slightly lame
1. As though
2. Provided that
i found in my book as though was the answer
but as you say i read that as though and as if represent subjunctive mood and the clause after it should be in past ex — He orders me as though he were my boss ..
so what do u say what should be the answer provided that or as though

Wednesday, July 16th 2014

Sunday, August 17th 2014

I’ve always been confused about ‘like’ and ‘as’.
It helped me a lot! Thanks for great lesson, Adam :)
I got 100 but i was confused about quiz #6.
“I’m not the only one to agree with the decision; the manager agrees as well, ( ) his staff.”
At this sentence, the answer was “as does” but why can’t i also use ‘like’ here?

Thursday, August 28th 2014

    I think its because the sentence emphasize the action that ‘his staff’ does agree too, not only to compare. It was explained implicitly at http://youtu.be/6nDEvB5eWDU?t=5m21s

    Saturday, December 6th 2014

I understood the lesson but I would like to know how to pronounce the word: (AS), and how to use it in sentences, It’s very hard for me to pronounce that word, so I always use the word (LIKE)to comparate, when I have a conversation in English!

Friday, October 17th 2014

    How to use it the word (AS) but how to use the pronunciation in sentences.

    Friday, October 17th 2014

THanks for this great lesson, thank you Adam,

i have a question here,
Why did you use ” As do i ” ? This does not match with what you explained in the lesson, that comes after As a ” S. ” then ” V. ”


Sunday, October 19th 2014

thanks :3

Thursday, October 30th 2014

thanks adam! this is well explained lesson

Saturday, December 6th 2014

Hi,Adam. Thanks a mill.
I learned that in negative sentences we should
use “so”: He isn’t so brilliant as his brother.”

Then it changed to “as…as” no matter what the sentence is negative or not.

So, I’ve got accustomed to using “not so…as”.

Is it wrong?

Sunday, December 14th 2014

Adam, “as if” is the same as “as though”,isn’t it?

As you didn’t mention this when you were explaining the subject, I got this one wrong in the quiz.

Sunday, December 14th 2014

I like I can learn a lot english with adam thanks for the lesson

Friday, December 19th 2014

Thanks for this lesson.
It’s very interesting and helpful!!!
It’s kind of easy to understand how use these comparisons, but quite difficult to use them correctly

Saturday, January 3rd 2015

Adam, thanks a lot for this lesson. When you explain this, it looks easy, but on a practice, I do some mistakes.

Sunday, January 4th 2015

I make* some mistakes)

Sunday, January 4th 2015

Adam, you are great teacher! Thanks! )

Monday, January 5th 2015

Adam, you are great teacher! Thanks! )

Friday, January 16th 2015

Than you Adam.

Monday, January 19th 2015

Thanx a lot Adam for the lesson. This subject very interested to me. But, May you explain more to me about the answer of question number 4,5 and 6. I still have been being confuse about it. Thanx :)

Monday, February 9th 2015

Hello, thank you a lot for your video.
I have a question.
We could say :
do you know anyone who works as a DJ ?
Do you know anyone who works like a Dj

Thank your for your answer

Monday, February 23rd 2015

    My suggestion is `do you know anyone who works as a DJ ?’ cos’ as a dj ‘means someone who is a DJ. you may refer to the last example Adam provided in video. He has elucidated the distinction between as and like

    Sunday, March 29th 2015

Thank you so much for this lesson.
But I still have a doubt, can you please help me with this sentence?

“Do not follow our natural diet IS AS (/is how?) supply a diesel fuel car with gasoline”

Thank you!

Monday, March 9th 2015

Adam, let me know if this sentence is incorrect:
“I work as a teacher”.

Tuesday, April 14th 2015

Hi Sir Adam,

I have a question and this made me confused about the topic. I have heard a song and the lyrics says
“love me like you do” is this correct?

Sunday, April 26th 2015

Thanks a lot . I got 8 correct out of 10 :)

Tuesday, May 19th 2015

thanks !! :-)

Saturday, May 30th 2015

Great! Thanks a lot!

Monday, June 8th 2015

Thank you a lot Adam!
You said about “as do I” or “as does she”
Is it the same that “so do I” or “so does I”
For example:
“I like French potatoes a lot.
SO DO I!!!”
I could say: AS DO I! ?

Thanks a lot and I’m sorry about any mistake! :)

Monday, June 22nd 2015

    Correct “So does he” besides “So do I”.

    Monday, June 22nd 2015

Obrigado Adam! Enfim consegui entender a diferença entre “as” e “like”.

Pretendo falar Inglês COMO você!
I intend to speak English LIKE you!


Monday, July 13th 2015

I’ve got 10, thanx to you, Adam!

Friday, July 17th 2015

Thank You, Adam! It’s very useful lesson. And very understandable, as usual. But I can’t understand the sentence “Allen’s speeches sound a lot like his father’s” in the test. “a lot like” is something concerning to the degrees of comparison? Or it connected with the verb (sound a lot)?

Monday, August 3rd 2015

Thanks for another enlightening lesson, Teacher Adam:)

Just a quick question. When can I use “As are you?”

Monday, August 3rd 2015

Hi! Adam.
I can’t understand point 5 and 6 of test. ((
To what rule it belongs?

Sunday, August 9th 2015

Not a 100 percent but I learnt anyway. Thanks so much Adam. Let’s continue

Sunday, August 30th 2015

thanks a lot Mr Adam,
I always enjoy your lessons :)
but i have a question about this sentences:
{the stately government house in Annapolis serve (as / like) the residence of the governor of Maryland}
why we use as in this sentence

Monday, August 31st 2015

    In this sentence “as” is used to be a preposition. The meaning is the same with ” in the position of”. Check the Adam’s video at 7:50.

    Friday, January 8th 2016

great lesson MR Adam I understood the whole lesson but I confused in the quiz , I will check this lesson again until I take the full mark.

Wednesday, September 2nd 2015

There is a Justin Timberlake song which is “Like I love you”. Its name is incorrect but acceptable after all song’s name should have been “As I love you”. :)

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Thanks! I’ve got 10/10

Friday, October 9th 2015

hi mr.adam ! ^^ really nice to learn wth u. would u mind to explain me about “would and would rather” in ur next teaching topic? really wait for it. thanks a lot ;)

Saturday, October 24th 2015

thank you. This lesson is a little difficult for me, but I like it.

Wednesday, November 11th 2015

Very good explanation, thanks Adam! You are an excellent teacher, I like your lessons.

Wednesday, November 18th 2015

thanks a million

you’re so kind

Saturday, December 19th 2015


Wednesday, January 6th 2016

I’m confused in no.7 question. Are the meaning of “as if” and “as though” these two phrases the same ?
Besides, hope Adam could make another video about how to use “if”. Because I’m also confused that when should we use past tense or future tense or simple tense comes after “if”, I really wonder to know how to use it. Thank you.

Friday, January 8th 2016

I usually make mistakes about the use of “as” and “like”. This lesson was great for me.
Adam, thanks for your explanation once more.

Saturday, January 30th 2016

I failed this quiz :((

Saturday, January 30th 2016

10 out of 10
I like your lessons. The explanations are clear. I’m looking forward to watch your another advanced video….

Thursday, February 4th 2016

Man i only got 5 out of 10. This lesson is quite confusing for me. I will study more about this lesson. Thanks for sharing this lesson adam.

Wednesday, February 17th 2016

Thanks :) I understand it but I hope to use it properly while talking :)

Saturday, February 20th 2016

Wonderful lesson, Adam

Wednesday, February 24th 2016

Thanks Adam, it helped me a lot.

Saturday, February 27th 2016

Good morning Adam, thanks for the lesson!

Wednesday, March 9th 2016

Hi Adam, if I say: “as a painter. ” (making a comparison), why is not used the word “like” instead “as” if the next word is not a clause and if a noun? or maybe I am wrong.

And again because “As” in this sentence: ” From this perspective, institucions are understood not only as specific organisations, such as museums, but as social fields, like the art world, that encompass a range of structures”?

And the same, in the following sentence: ” As the primary institucional frame art, museums play a central role in defining what art is and means” Why is not used Like?

Could you explain me this, please?

Monday, April 25th 2016

Thank a lot, Adam <3

Sunday, July 17th 2016

I find this lesson very useful for me.
Thanks a lot.

Tuesday, August 2nd 2016

Hi Adam! I like your lessons very much!

I have a question to this lesson…

Tell me please, is these sentences correct?

“They have more money than we have”?


They have as much money as we have?

Thanks a lot :)

Thursday, August 4th 2016

Hi,Adam. I have questuion.
You saw example how this “Well,Lisa came as did Tom and Jerry”. But in next you used “He speaks as Kenndy used to”. There are clause switched. After v+s or s+v or it is no difference? I will want to simple answer. Thanks

Monday, September 12th 2016

Very interesting. So that if i say ” i would like to improve my english as i never did before”. Is it correct?

Wednesday, September 14th 2016

Thankyou for your lesson.
But why is ‘Jackson has been sutddying as there’s no tomorrow’ incorrect and ‘as though there were no tomorrow’ correct?

Sunday, September 25th 2016

Hi Adam,
thanks for this useful video
I met two example about this subject and I cant understand why `as` use these sentence?
First example: As part of the completion of the project, we required t supply our client with CAD drawings.
Second example: Going forward please complete your project as below:

Many thanks :)

Monday, September 26th 2016

Thank you very much for your lesson Adam. Can you help me with this sentence, please? “I haven’t got used to all the customs yet – like it’s rude to blow your nose in public.” I think it’s wrong, am I right?

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Hi adam!
In some past lesson, you said that when I want to agree with someone I just can say “So do I”. That has the same meaning of “As do I”? Thank you very much, I find your lessons very helpful.

Saturday, October 15th 2016

Hi Adam.
Many thanks for the lesson.
Is it possible to say “As his father used to, he speaks very well.” instead of ” He speaks very well as his father used to”…?!

Thursday, November 10th 2016

I have got to study more

Tuesday, November 15th 2016

I got 90.

Thursday, November 17th 2016

Saturday, December 17th 2016

Hi Adam.

In this lesson you said ´´like” is followed by a noun, but what happen with this example: she dances just like her.?

Monday, December 19th 2016

Always very worth!

Friday, February 3rd 2017

Adam is a great teacher as a Emma is. Is this centence correct ? :)

Saturday, February 11th 2017

Wednesday, July 5th 2017

Hi, Adam. thanks for the important lesson. I confuse them every time like more people.I think I can use correct one when I should use them. May be, I will not use as native speakers do, but I will try use correct one like more students.Thanks:)

Friday, August 11th 2017

Thank You very much, Your lesson is the best as usual! But I have one question. Another teacher gave us the example “He is as strong as a bear”, but can we say “He is strong like a bear”? If yes, will it be the same meaning?

Friday, August 18th 2017

hai adam can you explain number 6 for me . thankyou :)

Sunday, September 3rd 2017

Thank you, I got 8 out of 10. Your tricks in grammar are very useful. You should have been an examiner in ETS.

Sunday, October 22nd 2017

Mr Adam, please explain to me sentence number six.

Tuesday, November 14th 2017

Thank you so much for the way you explained this!!!

Sunday, January 7th 2018

these words are alywas we used in daily conve but we never know the deifrent both coz both have similiar meaning and common word we always listen is Like to compareing somtging or to rever something and as sometime we use it as somethng to describe that ” ur position ” such as ” as ur boss i asked u to finissh ur job before u going home ”

now we knew the difrent and we knew how the grammatically does.

thank u adam.

Thursday, January 25th 2018

I’m very thankful for this lesson, most of the lessons have helped me a lot to improve my English. All thanks to you, I sincerely appreciate the effort you put into your work to make us understand and learn this language in a much more simpler way. And I have a doubt regarding on which to use or which one is the correct while replying.
a) As do I (or)
B) So do I ?

Saturday, January 27th 2018

thank very much for the good lesson.

Friday, February 2nd 2018


Sunday, March 11th 2018

Thanks Adam for everything!

Sunday, April 29th 2018

this is good

Thursday, May 3rd 2018

Hey, Adam! Thank you for the lesson. Could you explain when it is correct to use “compare with” and when “compare to”?

Wednesday, June 6th 2018

“She treats me like a dog.” I do not understand. Who looks like a dog – she or I?

Saturday, June 9th 2018

Thanks for everything, I really enjoy your videos, you explain clearly the information and I can understand. Thanks a lot.


Friday, July 13th 2018

Thank you for very nice lesson. It was revelation for me.

Wednesday, July 18th 2018


Thursday, August 23rd 2018

Hello Adam
i think number 6 is confusing. The blank is followed by a noun but you have to use “as does” instead of “like”

Tuesday, August 28th 2018

6/10, Shameful result as i didn’t expect to.
But i am assure that i almost understand the points of this lesson.

Wednesday, September 12th 2018

Hello Adam,
I have a question. What’s the difference between these two sentences?
Jackson has been studying as there’s no tomorrow.
Jackson has been studying as though there were no tomorrow.

Monday, September 24th 2018

9 out of 10 😄

Saturday, December 15th 2018

hi Alan I did an exercise for cambridge exam and there was a phrase that I did not understand : I am speaking to you ..as… a frien. I thought that ‘like’ in the space was the right answer because is usually followed by nouns. Why ‘AS’in this example is the correct answer? Is it why it show a position? thanks in advance

Friday, January 4th 2019

It’s me Shahrose from India. I like the way you teach I got 90 out of 100. I follow you very much and I am unable to understand Ex,(6) if you can describe why do we use “does” in this sentence.

Friday, January 11th 2019

when do we use, so do i??

Tuesday, May 14th 2019

Hi Adam,

thanks for your useful lesson. I just want to make clear again, so the sentence ” She speaks like her father” and the sentence “she speaks as her father does” has the same meaning, right? So “like” and “as” have the same meaning, and the only difference is that “like” followed by a Noun/pronoun and “as” followed by a clause??

Tuesday, July 2nd 2019

Thank you so much!

Friday, July 12th 2019

Hello Adam, I got the difference between “as” and “like” thanks to your very good lesson.
My question is about the sentence of sixth question in the quiz:
“I’m not the only one to agree with the decision; the manager agrees as well, ______ his staff.” .

Can use “who” instead of “to” before the verb “agree”? What would be the difference between them and is there any video about it in engVid ?

Sunday, August 11th 2019

Interesting, also German native speakers use as and how relatively often wrong.

Sunday, February 16th 2020

Interesting, also german native speakers use as and like relatively often wrong.

Sunday, February 16th 2020

When I m watching your lesso everything is easy and clear but I get lots of mistakes doing exercise :-(

Monday, April 13th 2020

It is bad.

Sunday, April 26th 2020

    isn it?

    Sunday, May 3rd 2020

Thank you so much.

Friday, May 15th 2020

Hello Adam, I love the way you explained the grammar. do you have the online class? if the online class is available please show me the way enroll.

Sunday, May 24th 2020

Thank you so much sir.it’s helped me a lot.good lesson.

Monday, May 25th 2020

Thanks, Adam. I got 9 correct out of 10.

Thursday, May 28th 2020

Can you plz explain number 6? why is the answer “as” not “like”. In my opinion, “his staff” is a noun.

Monday, July 13th 2020

thank you, great video

Tuesday, August 18th 2020

9/10! I confuse with the No.6 question also. These tips are useful and make me speak like a native speaker. Thanks, Adam! I wish I can speak English like you and write an essay as a native English.
