Thank you Adam. What’s does it mean ” Heather’s mother in law and Dad are spending time together” ? Heather’s mother ?
Have a good day.

beernaard

    Hi
    We use ( ‘s) in English to show that someone is theowner of something .
    Mary’s car
    John’s room
    I hope it helps.

    Soei

    Or : The teacher’s son,
    My father’s sister

    Soei

    Hi Beernaard,

    Heather’s mother-in-law is heather’s husband’s mother. It sounds like her mother-in-law is divorced or widowed and heather’s dad is the same so the two are spending time together.

    Does this help?

    Adam

      Ha ha ha ha :D

Hi, Adem! Wow, it’s really interesting and useful for me! Thanks a lot)))

What if I want to build a sentence with two or more subjects which are both present participles? For example: “Approaching the problem (of sth) from this and that perspective, and focusing also on how multidimensional (whatever) it is, seem/seems to be of the greatest importance here.” (I know it’s not the most… vivid example, perhaps, but I hope you know what I am driving at anyway.) Personally, I’d use “seems” as the second subject (or clause, maybe) is a bit digressive – it just adds extra information. Also, it is separated with commas. Would the sentence be correct then? Which subject should I use if there were no commas in the sentence?

ernest

    Hi Ernest,

    Here’s one example:
    Approaching the problem of energy from the perspective of sustainability, while keeping in mind economic considerations as they apply to the consumer, seems to be of the greatest importance. here.

    In this case I use an adverb clause separated by commas and therefore only one subject (approaching).

    Approaching the problem of energy from the perspective of sustainability and applying the findings of leading researchers seem to be of the greatest importance. here.

    In this case you have two distinct subjects (and plural verb) with no commas.

    Does this help?

    Adam

      Just as I thought… But yes, this does help. Thank you, Adam.

      ernest

      I was wondering about this too.. now, I know.

      AliciaG

      I love this explanation. And the sentences make good sense.

vovchick

Thank you Adam for this interesting but a little bit difficult lesson.

In your video; from minute 7:35
So, it is in german too, I think in other languages as well:
I can remenber as a student; the teacher told us: “… Be polite, the “I” always in second or last place!!!”

There is a german idiom about the “I” in first place.
Literal translation: “The donkey calls itself first” :-))

Ralph-GER

    :). Interesting perspective Ralph.

    Adam

WOW. I’m so happy, thank you very much. You teach very clear that I really appreciate it.

Why in question No.8 “were” is correct?? “his deputy” is not plural?!!!!

Mahtabi

    Hi
    The sentence has two subjects, there is ( and) between them. The best

    Hi Mahtabi,

    Soei is correct. Also, as soon as you see “both” look for two parts ;)

Shiine10

    You can create one Shiine ;)

    Adam

Helpful ,very pleased myself.thanks

jozomanij

Hi Adam
u said because spagetti and meatballs are in the same category we must use “is” when we use “and” between them.
I’m wondering why we can’t use “is” in ur second example between “doctors” and “nurses” which are in the same category/group too…

haman87

    It’s because spaghetti and meatballs is just ONE type of a dish: spaghetti (pasta) plus meat(balls) equals the dish. These are the most important ingredients of it, but we speak of them to refer to the dish as a WHOLE. And the whole is singular. As for doctors and nurses, these are in turn TWO different professional groups, and thus they have to be plural. They do not belong to the same category. It’s like BOTH doctors and nurses are off this week.

    ernest

    Hi Haman87,

    Ernest gave a good answer, but I’ll just add that doctors are in the same sector (healthcare), but are two distinct occupations. Though you will often hear the two mentioned together, they are not one unit.

    Adam

Hi Adam

Yeep!I got 10 out of 10 but I am still confused where to use is or are like in the last example give by sir Adam -loosing and winning… one.

Alison

    Hi Alsion,

    If there are two distinct subjects, use are. If the two items make up one subject, use is.
    Is this what you meant?

    Adam

      Ay thanks..

      Alison

I didn’t know myself to make so many mistakes in this subject… until you came along to illuminate us with your glow! Thank you Adam! As always your help is much appreciated!

Thank you so much!

hhoc26

Hi Adam, you’re really good teaching grammar. By the way, In spanish, we don’t put the first person pronoun first either, it’s considered a bit impolite. And one take a risk that somebody tell: the donkey ahead :-).

Jorge

    Apparently it’s the same in German. Thanks Jorge :)

    Adam

I got 10 .awesome! !

îkrãm chãllãl

Hi, Adam. In the sentence number 7, I answered “me” instead of saying “I”. Why am I wrong?. Should have the answer been the same as the number five answer?.

CART

    Hi Cart,

    in #7 me doesn’t work because it is an object pronoun and you need a subject pronoun for the verb ‘is’. She is the only singular subject.

    Adam

That is what i got. it appears to me is very low. so how can I improve my level?.
I am happy to receive any comments.
Thanks for all

Ashifa

Hello Adam I have some doubts. Can you please clarify.This is not related to this video but still.
As words are divided into different classes according to the work they do in sentence,we cannot say to which part a word belongs unless we see the sentence.Please explain how and with examples.

Alison

    I meant why….

    Alison

      I’m not really sure what you want me to give examples of… words that don’t work in a sentence?

      Adam

        No I actually mean that by just looking at a particular word can we say that it belongs to a particular part of speech or is the whole sentence should be defined, referred to to say about parts of speech?

        Alison

Can you help me understand better this question from your quiz: (The admissions officer concluded that neither Tracy nor ______ is eligible for the scholarship.) ?

answer choices : we, she, me (and) I
now I figured it is the word she that belongs there. I have not submitted my test yet. But, its important to understand why I could or couldn’t be the word (me) there too. they both hold the same purpose: writer identifying that person as (not eligible for a scholarship)?

Kathryn3232

    Hi Kathryn,

    Me is an object pronoun. You need a subject pronoun in this case, for the verb ‘is’. She is a subject pronoun that is also singular.
    (I isn’t one of the choices).

    Does this help?

    Adam

Hey Adam if you don,t mind will you please tell us about the tenses I mean where we should use the 1st,2nd and 3rd form please tell us about this. please

Muhammad Uzair

    Hi Muhammad,

    If you’re refering to the verbs, it’s base or simple present, past, and participle to use in perfect tenses:

    I am here.
    I was thee.
    I have been other places.

    Is this what you mean?

    Adam

thank you for lesson Adam. I learnt very important things thanks to you. 8\10 not so good but I thing good :)))

seda dede

I love this…. there’s a “hint” …:-)

Em Em

Hi Adam,
I enjoy watching your classes. I watch them several times. In the quiz, I have a confusion regarding Q3.(The teacher_______ going to conduct an experiment in the lab). Why the second option is correct? It says-“, together with his students, is”. I thought here the verb should be are as the students is pleural.

lubabashahrin

    Hi Lubabashahrin,

    Because it is separated with the commas (,), it is not part of the subject. In that case, only the teacher is the subject so the verb is ‘is’.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Yours and this web site courses are better to learn for whole life.

leo2liu

Hi Adam the quiz of the number 2 i feel confused. so would u mind to teach me ?

LIYIZHONG

    Hi Liyizhong,

    There are two groups in the subject (team and squad (squad is a synonym for team), so the subject is plural as it has two items, so they are going…

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thanks a lot, very important for us

Auriclessio Lima

Adams, thanks for your job!

Marsius

Hey Adam, Q7. Could be “Me” interchangeable with “I” in that case? Thanks dude, your topics are superb!!

Bons

    Hi Bons,

    No, because nor joins two parts in the subject, and so you need a subject pronoun. Me is an object pronoun.

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

Q5 I mean. Because I thought My managger and me would also be a correct answear.

Bons

    Same answer :) If the pronoun works with the main verb, then it’s a subject.

    Adam

Thanks Adam; I got 80 Percent. Need to improve.

SJ SINGH

When you are saying about bad things, we should use, for example, I and The manager got into a heated argument in the middle of the meetings. In this sentence, argument is bad expression. So, it is better use I and the manager instead of the manager and I

Sham shu Anwar

    Hi Sham,

    In terms of the language, argument is not a good or bad expression. It’s just a situation. This doesn’t affect the order or the compound subject.

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

very helpful.Thank you Adam!

Thomas Bi

Happy New Year Adam,

How do organic fruits differ from non organic ones?
Ans. They had more vitamins and anti-oxidents.
I would like to ask you why “they” is refered to non-organic fruits instead of organic ones.
Are there any rules for this?
Thank you so much.

Here is the question from my textbook, the answer to the question is enters… Can you explain it to me what is the reason to make the verb enters?

Before each new session of Parliament, the Governor General of Canada, accompanied by the Prime Minister and other dignitaries, enter the Senate Chamber to deliver the Speech from the Throne.

hannah.T.C

Adam, the clarity you bring into my mind with your lessons is captivating. Sometimes I even use it as a lullaby so that I can end my day well. While watching many other videos of yours I failed to generate doubts. However, in this video, I have a doubt. Consider the following sentences

1. The founder and CEO of the company is ready to sell.
2. The founder and CEO of the company are ready to sell.
3. The founder and the CEO of the company are ready to sell.

I used to think that the third sentence specifically tells that the founder and the CEO are different persons just by using ‘the’ before CEO. But in your video you have shared that the second sentence can also mean they are different persons. So, is the third sentence a better alternative to the second one to bring more clarity?
