    Taqveem Ul Haq

First I want to thank this very useful site and perfect teachers,and then plz help me with memorizing vocabulary.I mean in English a lot of words have several different meanings.For ex “advance” has several meanings just as a noun,so how can I learn them.Thx a zillion.

Zahra mansouri

    Hi Zahra,

    The best way to learn vocab is to read a lot. That way you will see these words in their different uses and remember them better. Also, if you see a word you know but not sure how it’s being used in a sentence, look it up in the dictionary and find its other meanings. Other than that, it’s just time and practice.

    Adam

Great job Adam

Chloe.Lee

Hello Adam,I have visited at your website.It is showing under process,and it is not getting opening when will it be open.

Wajahath Ali khan

    Hi Wajahath. It’s running now :)

    Adam

Fortunately we don’t have to pass none of these exams in my country, though our kids start to learn writing essays pretty early; even at gymnasium. Yet, some of us, adults, still have problems with “good waffling”.

everden

    Nothing teaches better than constructive self-criticism – what a beautiful double negation :) (possibly the exaggerated make-up blunted my sight) .

    everden

This is my worst quiz grade, but I ‘ve realized that my English has to improve if I want to speak it fluently.

    me too…

    Nora1986

This is really helpful! Thank you Adam. Your lessons are always so great.Althrough I don’t have to take these exams, I also learned a lot!

Xiaowei

It’s amazing,I just go to 5 correct out of nine,I should Think of it carefully.question three,I prefer the last one,I like this way,say something 1234,finally get conclusion.

Bob1975

Hello Adam ,
Not easy but I got just one mistake and I congratulate myself . If you want to do it , don’t hesitate . Ahah !!
It seems that in the first quiz question paragraph the sentence “exposure to and ability to acquire” has a mistake . It should be “exposure to an ability to acquire”
Am I right ?
Thank you to wake our brains up .

tsamp

    Hi Tsamp,

    There is no need for the ‘an’ before ability because exposure and ability both serve as objects to the possessive “students'”.

    That being said, the ‘to’ after exposure could have been omitted. :)

    Adam

OMG!! 3 Correct out of 9 :(

Baki Duman

Thanks for great tips about writing. The lesson was easy to understand but the quiz wasn’t. I got the worst score ever ;(. I need to take it one more after wahtcing the lesson again.

Question #10. Let’s pick a random native English speaker. What is the chance they can pass the IELTS or TOEFL, assuming it is Adam who marks it?
;)

tomek11

    Lol. You’d be surprised how many native speakers wouldn’t do well on these tests ;)

    Adam

Adam, my congratulations with your hockey-team victory

Thanks Adam for these highly valuable instructions to write a better essay!

These points seem universal, because probably they can fit to other languages too!

Fabio Cicerre

… fit other languages too …

Fabio Cicerre

Useful advices! .. Great lesson! .. Thanks!

Luke

hi, I have a question.. you told several times ‘he’ talking about a child. I read that it’s not correct to call a child just ‘she’ or ‘he’ and it is recommended to use ‘they’, ‘he or she’, ‘child’s’ etc.. It is important to know for students who are going to do a TOEFL test, because there might be questions about children. what do you think, is it correct to use also ‘he’ in this case? thanks

Sofia1

    Hi Sofia,

    Good question. It’s ok to choose one pronoun (he or she) as long as you stay consistent. Many writers choose to go with the plural to avoid the gender issues in writing, but that’s a personal choice. On the TOEFL you won’t be penalized for choosing one gender.

    Adam

Hi, Im Haridan from thailand. I love you so much

    Adam

      Thanks!

      audrysilva

Hello Adam!
I need your help. How can I improve my speaking english without practicing with native speakers

Finnar

    Hi Finnar,

    You can find online talks (like ted.com) that have transcripts. Listen and follow along with the transcripts, then record yourself as you repeat the talk. Compare your intonation to the native speaker and pay attention to when they stress or destress things, when they speed up or slow down, accent, etc.

    This is a good way to practice.

    Adam

Adam! I need more time to get better understanding.

pavanut2

    Take all the time you need Pavanut :)

    Adam

thank you teacher

LILY

The more I know about IELTS/TOEFL exams, the more they are extremely subjective to me.
Anyway, thank you Adam for good lesson.

Dr@g0n

    Quite right Dragon :) To a limit. The writing and speaking is more open to being subjective, but there are two graders, so they do have to follow some standards.

    Adam

any one want to chat with me to practice english this is my number 00963504515767 on the whatsapp

abostef123

    ur number is not showing any wats app contact??

    siva chaitanya

I love this teacher. He’s awesome. :-)

Albuquerque Junior

Hello Adam, I want ask you for passive sentence with “go to”

I go to college
Some people say it can be translated in passive As
“The action of going to college is done by me.”
Is it right sentence or, not?
I’m waiting for your reply.

AdeelKhamisani

    Hi Adeel,

    Technically, the sentence is correct, but you will almost never see this sentence used. Anyway, that’s a passive of do, not go. Go is not used in a passive form.

    Adam

Hello Adam. I have a doubt about the question number 3. The setence given as correct was ” International students are thus able to kill two birds with one stone; they gain mastery over a new language, while at the same time building a network of like-minded people with whom they can collaborate in the future”. The question is: isn’t redundant to say “while at the same time”? Aren’t those expressions synonymous?

Danddan

    Good point Danddan. You could remove the “at the same time” but leaving it in emphasises that they achieve both results by the one action , not as separate actions (they build a network by taking to people, which allows them to practice speaking and improve their language skills).

    If I left only the ‘while’ then they are doing the two things separately, which doesn’t support the use of the idiom.

    Adam

      Thank you very much for your great explantion, teacher!

      Danddan

Adam, please help me again with present perfect.
There’s a letter:

Dear Lisa,
a lot of things have happend since you went to London.
We have bought a new car.
My brother………a new job.
My parents……..on holiday last week.
My sister……….how to ride a bike.
Our Pussy cat……..part in a cat show.
It ……….two days ago.
She………..a prize.
I …….already………two leters to you.
But I…………from you yet. Write to me
soon.
Best wishes,
Olga.

You can use verbs:
knew
written
took
done
flown
swam
won
gone
came
was
went
swum
wrote
ate
seen
got
been
made
taken
bought
learnt
ran
eaten
heard
spoken
ridden
found
spoke
rode
drawn

Adam if you please, explain me why did you use past simple or present perfect. Thank you.

KATRIN777

    Of course – it was two days ago, I have already written two letters to you.
    I would say ” My brother has got a new job” but I heard resantly that HAVE GOT is not present perfect.

    KATRIN777

    Dear Lisa,
    a lot of things have happened since you went to London.
    We bought a new car.
    My brother found a new job.
    My parents went on holiday “last week”.
    My sister learned/has learned how to ride a bike.(this can be both because she might still be learning as it takes time)
    Our Pussy cat took part in a cat show.
    It was two days ago.
    She won a prize.
    I have already written two letters to you.
    But I haven’t heard from you yet. Write to me
    soon.
    Best wishes,
    Olga.

    Technically, all the “events” should be simple past because they are randomly listed as happening in that time period (since you left until today). The letters show two actions in that period, so they are perfect tenses since they happened over two unknown times, and still waiting to hear from you, so the action continues.

    Adam

      Adam, thank you. I begin to understand this topic better. I will write you again.(about P.P and P.S)

      KATRIN777

7/9 :)

JuanPablo01

It was really hepfull Adan, These are what I need to improve my writting. I have to practice inded to be good on it,I always try to put “big words” as you told before; It does not work very well. You are a great teacher, keep on this way. God bless You.

Carlos Martinho

Hello, I understood the lesson despite I´m beginner, but my test was very bad because I think it was very long.

jjhenao

very good

Anhoainguyen

Adam are those idioms commonly used(often)?
1 don’t put words in my mouth
2 a deal’s a deal

KATRIN777

    or should I just say “don’t lie” in first case?
    Thank you.

    KATRIN777

    Yes, they are quite common. The first is often used about the media whose reporters conduct interviews and then claim the interviewee said something that they didn’t. (the reporters “interpreted” it that way.)– it’s not necessarily a lie, but not the whole truth either ;)
    The second means you can’t changed your mind about an agreement that’s been made.

    Adam

      But, Adam if I in a speach will say you “don’t put words in my mouth” will it be not weird? If I will be doing it often?

      KATRIN777

        It’s not something that’s said often. You can say it when you think someone is trying to twist your words to make it seem like you are saying something you’re not saying. You probably won’t speak to that person very often or for very long, so it’s not that common ;)

        Adam

Uhh… 5/9 i have to work on this. thank you for this lesson.

Montans

Thank you m.r Adam

Artties

I hope you will upload more video about IELTS because you taught very easy to understand. Thank you for your reading my comment.

MalekAburaddaha

Hi Adam, I did the quize and I got 4 correct out of 9. I’m confused with the quize.
Thank you very much.

bellatimor

    It’s not an easy quiz Bellatimor. Try again :)

    Adam

thank you very much, Adam!

doraruz

Adam, could you make a lesson, please, about using “there is and there are” because it is so confusing sometimes.
Some grammar textbooks say you must use “there is”
when you make a list. For istance:
– there is a desk, a chair, a blackboard in the classroom. There is a wolf and seven little goats in the house. I use “there are” in those cases.
Thank you.

KATRIN777

    I’ll get on it Katrin ;)

    Adam

      Thank you!

      KATRIN777

Adam, is the next correct:

– Forget him!
– How can I? Wherever I go, everywhere is his name.

KATRIN777

    I would write:

    – How can I? Wherever I go, I see his name.
    or
    – How can I? Wherever I go, his name is there.

    Though technically, you don’t see a name. Wherever I go, I hear his name.

    Adam

      or
      wherever I go, his name comes up.

      Adam

        Thank you Adam, I just wanted to know, could I put the subject after BE-verb.

        KATRIN777

          I’d need to see an example to be sure what you’re asking, but in an inverted structure, yes, you can:

          Not only IS HE clever, but HE IS rich too.

          Adam

This lesson is very interesting. Thank you Adam!

TatianaKushch

Very hard quiz
You are a great teacher

zuura

    Hi Zuura,

    I’m afraid I can’t assess essays here. I do offer this service though at writetotop.com if you are interested.

    Adam

Childhood is a period of life between the ages of six to sixteen. In this period, people are approaching to adulthood doing different kinds of things, for instance going to schools, joining clubs, playing with friends, learning skills, exploring the world and etc. More or less these activities might make person’s life happier, better and more memorable. In my following paragraphs i will try to give examples and reasons why I agree that childhood is considered to be the best and happiest time of a person’s life.
First reason of why childhood is the happiest moment of life is when you are a child, you do not worry about earning money, providing family or dealing with some problems which are faced later period of life in almost everyone’s life. It is a period of time when there is no anxiety of what to do and how to act in order not to be judged by society. This is already a big plus of always wanting to stay a child.
Second reason is you always feel you are healthy and young, because the older you get, the sicker you feel. When you are ill, you need to go to hospitals a lot, you cannot jump, play and run as fast as you want. Furthermore, when you are a child, your life is full of colorful moments, joy and happiness as well as entertainment, which lead you to think that this world is like a paradise, Children usually think that there is nothing wrong, that everything is perfect, life is wonderful.
Third reason is when you are a child, you have big dreams, aspirations and goals, which you believe you will get without struggles and obstacles, because in your world everything is easy and everyone loves and supports each other. For me, this is the most important thing to think that childhood is the happiest momet of life.
To sum up, I would like to emphasize that childhood is the best time and say that when you are a child you always want to grow up faster and become adult, so you can make your own decisions and you think that adult life is more fascinating and glamorous. On the other hand, when you are already an adult you want to turn back time and go to your past to relive it, because that was the period when you enjoyed your life more.

zuura

Thanks Adam/ Its excellent

Thank’s Adam I get 9 points for this quiz … It’s good material for writing practice. You are not just cute native english tutor but you also smart to give a direct method for us as non-native english speaking. It is very useful and I will be happy to watch your videos for another material.

anna.wijayanti

Hey, Adam I wanna know if you can upload a video explaining the prepositions of place, please. I need it

mmateoabreu70

Can I send you my writing?

nuFf

First of all, thank you so much for very useful tips. I personally feel that how people express their opinion and then provide supported reasons, it is sometimes complex and confusing depending on each culture in particular. For example, as a Thai, I am often sure that I have already given all supported reasons but it seems like it is not enough for a native reader eventually. It appears to me that the way Asian thought and how we support our ideas are a bit different from English native speaker; we normally do not have to provide lots of concrete reasons. However, practice makes perfect undoubtedly, I will try to keep practicing in order to get used to the way native speakers think and create a structure of writing.

Ammy Yourcat

I have a question, do you prepare student to the TOELF in some school in Canada?

Hello,

My name is Mohamed.I’m from Egypt and I’m studying for the Academic IELTS test.I will do the test because I want to apply to a British univeristy for a postgraduate Master’s programme.I’m really afraid as I believe that it is hard to get a good score in the academic IELTS.By the way, my sister did the general training IELTS last year and she got 8! She told me that she studied two weeks for the exam.She now lives in Toronto, Canada.

Hi Adam. I have question about 5th mistake. 1)As far as I am concerned,… 2)In my opinion,… 3)It appears to me that… 4)I would argue that… 5)I am inclined to believe that… and so on. It is right or wrong if I use variety of these expressions in the beginning of each paragraph. For example, First paragraph. 1)As far as I am concerned,… Second paragraph. 2)I would argue that… Third paragraph. 3)I am inclined to believe that… and so on until conclusion not in the beginning of conclusion.

Hello Adam,
Thank you very much for your videos! They are really helping me with my writing.
I have a question about the use of “may”, “should” etc… I think I tend to use it a lot on a text.
Should I say:
“In my perspective, the friends’ role in building a character MAY be greater then the parents’ role” or “In my perspective, the friends’ role in building a character is greater then the parents’ role”?
When should I make stronger statements (“is greater”) and when should I use a less strong statement (“may/should be greater”)?

Thank you,

Akbari bilqis

I Adam! Thank so much for making this video.
I took the TOEFL a few months ago, which made me realise what my weaknesses are. I believe that my listening ability is the high level, but it comes to speaking and writing essays I am not very good at it.
I am planning on taking the TOEFL again soon because I really need to apply to college this year to finish my degree here in this country.
My question is, How long it will take me to improve my writing and my speaking skills to be able to pass this test?
Thank you so much and I will keep watching videos and taking notes because they really help.

Mannyb26

aqadeer065

Again very useful information shared and i learned from them. Apart from this, how to differentiate between essay topic given in exam for one task statement and asked as: 1. Do you agree or disagree ? and 2. What extent do you agree or disagree ? Any information on this will be useful for me and everyone.

Maulik

Sir can we include opinion in conclusion paragraph

Adam, it was difficult test. I got 6/9 only. Need to know more about use of idioms or have to skip them at all. Also need to practice on opening sentence and Hi-end words.
Thanks for your great tips!

mtariq

Thank you, Adam!!!

JJulian

This helped me a lot with understanding what is expected from an essay, thanks!

I have some feedback too:

I find “All of the above” options on questionnaires to be somewhat unhelpful: they drive the person to pick it as the answer, since it’s usually not present when it isn’t the desired answer; all options then are correct, but no credit is given if some option other than it is selected.

Also, it is possible to continue to next question without picking an answer on current question.

adrikei

Thank you, Adam.
Very useful.
but a bit of extra explanation is needed for the correction.

fara2002

Hi Adam,
I need to know that what is the difference between “To what extent do you agree or disagree” and “Do you agree or disagree”
Do we need to respond in the same way or there is a slight difference?

Hussain Syed

Thanks Adam I been watching your videos in YouTube and here. I still don’t get it :( I failed in the test. Now, I feel worried about my incoming PRAXIS Test. Do you have more examples of your Reading (passages) and Writing lessons? I wonder if you can make a couple of practice for PRAXIS Test. I’m preparing my teaching certification but this two subjects are my biggest concern.

I heard it is better to do not use personal example, but by using that, supporting the reason is much easier. What should I do?
