Hi Adam .
Thank you for this lesson .
Talking about smartphones should not be a favourite topic in school . It made me fail at question 8 .
See you

    Hi tsamp!
    If there is an answer “all of these” or “both answers” that means it’ll be the right answer in most cases. Pay attention to all answers

    Profile photo of dolcom dolcom

      Thank you for your comment Dolcom .
      I know that in most cases where “all of these are correct” is proposed , I must tick this option .
      I keep on beleiving that smartphones cause troubles at school even in playgrounds and unless they are studying new technologies in high school , they should let them in the cloakroom .
      But maybe am I hold-fashioned .
      We are more than one and so différent , thus failure sometimes belongs to the one who thinks that there is only one answer.
      Bye

        Hi Tsamp,

        Remember, the point of this exercise is to have one topic and adapt it to different questions. A smartphone can be a good backup if you don’t have enough to say about a school subject. Begin with science, especially physics, then move the conversation to smartphones because you like to figure out how they work. It can also be regular cellphones.

        The point here is that the answers just have to well delivered; they don’t necessarily have to be true.

As always on the most extreme drive. No one can get bored. Continue to stay on this wave. Thank you so much, you are a motivator from God =))) I don’t know what I would do without the engvid team.

Hey Adam and Alex
Although I don’t write very often in the comment section I’m following the Engvid regularly
It might be a good idea to get a class from you talking like the way you use to talk with your friends, either in a party or at the bar. Speed and slang.
I’m telling you this because I and probably many students, understand you near about hundred per cent, but I wonder how it would be in a regular situation. Thanks and
best regards

    That’s a good idea Gori.
    I’ll suggest it to the Engvid team.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      OK.
      Thank you.
      I take this opportunity to wish you and the rest of the Engvid team Merry Christmas

      Oh, it’s a very interesting idea! I’ ll be looking forward to seeing such a video.
      Adam, your explanations are really great, absolutely clear and easy to listen to. I suppose, you won’t talk to your friends this way. ))) Please, let us see how you do it.

Hi Adam,
excellent lesson. However, the english idiom “to kill two birds with one stone” is really cruel. It made me sad in your lesson.

Profile photo of adrijana adrijana

    I’m sorry to hear that, Adrijana. Unfortunately, it’s not the only one. But that’s language. Better to know what people are saying and then try to persuade them to change certain habits. I’ll try not to use it again :)

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      :) In my language we say “to kill two flies with one hit”. It might be a little more human idiom.

      Profile photo of adrijana adrijana

        I’m afraid that this is exactly the same situation, Adrijana. First off, we kill thousands of animals every single day because that’s what people do to get food, and to say that killing a fly is “a little more human” than killing a bird is a little hypocritical — and even if we’re just talknig here about idioms, it remains so nevertheless.

        Profile photo of ernest ernest

          But we kill the flies only if they are annoying to us. Not for food. Not to have fun. It is a huge difference.

          Profile photo of adrijana adrijana

        There’s another English saying, “He/she wouldn’t hurt a fly.” It means the person (or, sometimes, animal) is gentle and won’t harm anything. Maybe you “wouldn’t hurt a fly”?

        Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

      That’s all right, Adam. You shouldn’t worry about that.
      In Russia, we say “to kill two hairs with one shot”, and no one says it’s rude, everyone knows it’s just an idiom, and no one is going to kill a poor animal. There is a collocation in Russian about such a situation: “a kindergarten!” It obviously means that a person doesn’t react as we expect him to, but in a very unusual way, finding a problem where it doesn’t exist.

      Profile photo of Lyubov SPb Lyubov SPb

        there was a misspell. Hares, of course. Sorry. (((

Hello Adam! As always, great lesson. Thank you!
Please, help me to figure it out. I often face the word ‘yet’ that put at the beginning of the sentence and I don’t understand its meaning. Here is the example: “Yet, arithmetic can be as difficult to learn as reading and some people never master it, leading to dyscalculia”. And there are many of sentences like this. Especially in magazines. It troubles me so, and I still can’t get this purpose of yet. Please, explain.

Profile photo of AlexanderR134 AlexanderR134

    Alex, “yet” means: Nevertheless or still.

    Profile photo of Saul Joury Saul Joury

      Is it a formal way to use it?

      Profile photo of AlexanderR134 AlexanderR134

    Hi Alexander,

    Saul is correct in saying it means nevertheless. But the key is that it is a conjunction with a similar meaning to but:

    I have tried very hard, yet I still have not been able to succeed.

    Starting a sentence with it is actually pretty common in academic writing.

    Does this help?
