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.

Profile photo of Zahra mansouri 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.

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 .

Profile photo of tsamp 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. :)

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

Profile photo of Sofia1 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.

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

Profile photo of Finnar 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.

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.

Profile photo of AdeelKhamisani 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.

    Profile photo of Adam 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?

Profile photo of Danddan 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.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Thank you very much for your great explantion, teacher!

      Profile photo of Danddan 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
Best wishes,

You can use verbs:

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

Profile photo of KATRIN777 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.

    Profile photo of KATRIN777 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
    Best wishes,

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

Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

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

    Profile photo of KATRIN777 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.

    Profile photo of Adam 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?

      Profile photo of KATRIN777 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, 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.

    – 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.

    Profile photo of Adam 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.

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.

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”)?

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.

Profile photo of JJulian 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.

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?
