Thanks Mr.Adam for your top-notch grammar class

Jannyl

Thanks for the informative video.
How about the phrase “I would like to do sth” or in question form “Would you like to do sth?”
Here “Would” isn’t used for expressing politiness and to be formal?

Mehdig84

    Hi Mehdi,

    Yes, ‘would like’ is a set expression that means ‘want’. It is a bit more polite and formal.

Hi Adam,
Thank you for the grammar lesson will vs would.
What is the meaning or implications of the following structures?

I’d say…
Example:
I’d say he’s fifty years old.

I would argue that…
Example:
I would recommend that…
I would argue that the benefits exceed the drawbacks.

Example:

To alleviate the issue of constantly thinking about work, I would recommend trying techniques such as meditation.
Thank you in advance for your answer.

    Hi Saeid,

    That’s a great question.

    In this case, using would is a ‘soft’ way of expressing a statement. It essentially means “If someone asks me, I would argue that…/recommend…/etc.”

    Otherwise consider this:
    To alleviate the issue of constantly thinking about work, I recommend trying techniques such as meditation.

    Same meaning with or without ‘would’ but one is ‘softer’

    I hope this helps.

I tried solving the questions without watching the lecture. I’ve got 6/10. OMG.

    Not bad Norikenshi :)

    Try again after watching.

    Adam

Hi Adam,
Could you please do a series of videos on grammatical mistakes students make on IELTS writing exams, particularly band 6.5 to band 8?
I think such videos will be beneficial to many students.
Thank you in advance.

Can you explain numbre 3 for me,plz?

Ashrakt

    Hi Ashrakt,

    This is a reported speech. In reported speech, the verb goes back one tense.

    The original statement was ” I will let you know by the end of the week.” The will changes to would when reported later.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thanks so much for the lessons

Thanks a lot,Mr.Adam

Monica-

Hi Adam. Please find below queries about usage of will and would.
– I would like to ….
– How would I know….
Why don’t we use will in above sentences?

namu

    Hi Namu,

    ‘Would like’ is a set expression that is a polite/formal way to say ‘want’.

    How would I know…. means I don’t know. It usually refers to something that already happened or a situation that already existed.

    How will I know means that in the future there will be a signal that tells me the answer, so I want to know what that signal will be.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thank you teacher Adam ,you are GREAT.

I got 8/10, could you please explain number 10.

Ali Soltan

Dear Adam
I have been following your exelent way of teaching for years and really appreciate from your good efforts. Regarding the will and would subject I really request to go a little bit deep because I think one of the major challenges for any foreign English learners would be this very subject. For example as you mentioned one of their usage is to cover a range of guess or speculation. For instance, ### As you will have noticed I am using from new glasses### or another example #### the tennis match will have started by now ###or for the past tense we can have ### the plane having crashed last night, it would have been flying for spying perpuse ### or ## the shooter hit the target from 2000 meter away, he would have had to consider all factors like wind speed and temperature in his shot###
Please let me know about your advice. Regards Aria Rousta

Aria Rousta

    Hi Aria,

    Firstly, thank you :)

    I understand your question, but the uses of will are many. The first two examples you mention are future perfect tenses (will have past participle). The next two examples (would have) are hypothetical uses of would (these sentences should be part of an ‘if’ structure).

    I’ll try to get deeper into this as soon as I can.

    Please see my other channel (youtube.com/writetothetop) and ask me direct questions there as well and I’ll answer in the videos.

    Adam

Thanks everyone :)

Adam

Dear Adam
I found two good example from credible website in which we see the guess aspect of would have pp’s usage.
1- One congressional source said that given the sophistication of the attack, Iran would have had a role, since Hamas does not have the ability to buy weapons at this scale.(CNN website)
2- The family believes the couple were inside their tent, likely reading, when the attack happened. Tris, their seven-year-old dog, would have been snuggled up next to them.( guardian news website)
First example’s Meaning is clear but I can not figure it out the second example.
Thank you

Aria Rousta

thank youu

Dear sir,
I was studying my study text and I found that there is a use of would. Please check the below text:
“Apple Inc. knows that it has a strong market share in the USA. It would be difficult for a company to do any better than it is already doing. It will therefore consider expanding into new markets”
Why they have used would. Is this unrealistic past?

naveed42927k
