gavin.tien

Thank you Adam. I watch some shows such as The Big Bang Theory, The Flash. CBC Radio helps to understand some of Canada’s actual problems, discussions, etc.

Leonid Ramzaev

    That’s a good idea Leonid. Keep it up.

    Adam

Could you inform me what does the idiom “in inverted commas” mean?

Tornike Kenkebashvili

    Hi Tornike,

    I’d need to have the full sentence. Inverted means opposite sides or direction. An inverted comma would then be quotation marks. Not sure I am familiar with this as an idiom though.

lclucasalves

so can we use these words in writing like in SAT – essay or for a school essay exam

Humaid shams

    Hi Humaid,

    No, these are mostly too casual or too cliche for academic essays. Some are usable, but if you are not sure of the right context, better to avoid them.

    Adam

Thanks, teacher Adan how to you your video because what we don’t understand, to understand you so we haven’t understood anything about in English in this knowledge we know some about English thanks Mr: Adan Keep going best teacherm

Hi, Adam. Thanks for the helpful video. You promised to make video about sport vocabulary. It will be great! You know, a lot of teachers try to explain grammar? different between DO and MAKE, Perfect tense or something like this. There are a lot of videos related to the same topics in Internet. But there aren’t enough videos for listening skills. Recommendation to watch TV are good. But many student, like me, who passed English grammar with red Murthy and have 3000 words in their vocabulary can’t watch TV and movies. Because they have high speed, use more vocabulary and many specific words and expressions. I can valuably watch only Peppa Pig and also I use Mad English channel for listening skills. YouTube is good things for students because we can reduce speed turn on subtitles. We’d like to have 5-12 minutes videos for listening. For that I guess teacher may use any events and tell as their opinion or reaction and along the way explain the words . Thanks again!

NinaAstra

    Hi Nina,

    I’ll see what I can do, but I don’t schedule the lesson topics. Hopefully it will come up soon.

    As for listening, it’s all about training the ears with practice. ;)

    Adam

Thank you, Adam!

Eliana Elias

Hai Au

Thank you very much, teacher.

Thanks for this class, Adam!! I have a question: can you explain why you used the word “TEMPO” instead “Time” in the basketball exemple? :D

Gabrielvs

    Hi Gabrielvs,

    No-one can control time. Tempo means speed, which you can control (i.e., play fast or slow– this allows you to use more time on each play or les time to have more plays, etc.).

    Hope this helps :)

    Adam

      Thanks for the great question and explanation here.

      queenie0326

All your tips sound very sensible.
Thanks a lot Adam ;)

Jacinto

Hi Adam, Thank you for useful video. You show a greate idea about learning language. If you create new lesson about sports term, I and a lot of your student will be happy. For instanse, what the difference between take away and give away.

Erazm

    Hi Erazm,

    In sports, a take away is a steal (you take the ball away from the other team). At the same time, the other team gives it away (lose the ball).

    Of course these terms have other meanings in other contexts. Too many to list here though. Type “define take away” in a search engine and you will see some of these.

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

This’s an amazing lesson I learned a lot of things. My way to understand more spoken English is to take a script of my favourite TV show and print it out and then I highlight all the new words and phrases. I then use Anki app to make my flashcards and I learn them for like 2 weeks and when I feel ready I watch the episode to test my comprehension. I know this is a long process but during making the flashcards I actually absorb the words and when I’m learning on Anki it generally feels like reviewing really. And I actually get to know a lot of advanced words and phrases using this method. Thanks again Adam.

Jude Benyamin

    That’s great, Jude. Effort like that will certainly pay off in the long run. Keep it up :)

Hi Adam. Indeed, whole life in a different culture, speaking a different language. Not easy to make up for :)
Perhaps a little bit different issue but challenging to me too – how to understand the weather guys on tv (particularly on the British news channels)? I usually only grasp “sunny spells”. I’m not sure if it is just speed or they use some special syntax. I’d love to watch a lesson in which such a speedy weather forecast was broken down into understandable pieces. Regards.

tomek11

    Good idea Tomek.

    A spell is a short period of time. Keep in mind that British, American, Canadian, etc. English each has its own particular phrases. Learn the one you want to use most.

    I’ll see what I can do about the weather forecast ;)

    Adam

Thanks everybody :)

Adam

I thank very much for this fantastic lesson!

This relates to my situation. Its a big help. Thank you 😊

Ralphkda

In this video You are teaching us “how to sharpen our saw” not “how to cut the trees”. please do more of these stuff. These are more useful than some grammar rules or vocabulary lessons.

Grazely

I like Adam the way he teach.

polsafid

My First classe Adam, very nice!!

Anderson Pestana

Thank you Mr. Adam.

Alex-1956

Now my vocabulary got enriched! Can’t wait to use one or two of these! Adam, would you care to make a video about proverbs? Seems like idioms are everywhere, all teachers have at least one video on idioms, but not so many lessons on proverbs. Myself, I often use “every cloud has a silver lining”. I bet you could come with a bunch of really useful ones.

nutondev

thank you)

tabarakrm
