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

Wednesday, June 27th 2018

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?

Wednesday, June 27th 2018

Many many thanks! So useful !

Thursday, June 28th 2018

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” :-))

Thursday, June 28th 2018

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

Hi guys, I liked this video and I have to thank our teacher Adam. Is there any WhatsApp group for the students on this platform?

Monday, July 2nd 2018

Helpful ,very pleased myself.thanks

Monday, July 2nd 2018

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…

Monday, July 2nd 2018

    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.

Monday, July 9th 2018

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 :-).

Monday, July 9th 2018

I got 10 .awesome! !

Monday, July 9th 2018

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?.

Tuesday, July 10th 2018

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.
