I got 10/10 thank you Adam :) I was wondering if you could make a lesson about usage of “rather” and quite, because I have a little trouble with them. I mean, I learned that sometimes meaning of them can be different in a sentence but I can’t understand why and when it happens. It’s confusing. Does it depend on construction of a sentence? I’d appreciate it if you could help me with this :)

Anyway, I enjoyed the lesson as always, thanks :)

    I’ll get on that Hubert ;)

    Adam

      Hi Adam, thanks for great lessons. Actually, I believe I have very bad writing skill. I always get confused between different tenses and sometimes not able to connect clauses. Can you help me out to cope us with this problem? Any suggestion ?

      Regards,
      Shabaz

      skhan.lalbagh@gmail.com

Hi Adam.Tx a alot. I’ve got 7:)
I think as long as is same also and it isn’t used for condition formed. But I am confused in question 1. Plz help me ?

mgh

    You can think of it as a time clause as well (for as long as), but essentially it means if this situation continues…

    Does this help?

    Adam

Can someone tell me how to use whereas please.

Hemant Rawat

    Hello Hemant, “Whereas” is a conjunction, it means ” but on the other hand.” It shows contrast between two things, actions etc.
    Example: I like to go swimming whereas Hemant likes to sail.Hope it is clear now.

    Stranger444

      Thank you stranger444.

      Hemant Rawat

    Hi Hermant,

    Stranger444 gave a good answer, but I’ll try to make a lesson about it as well.

    Adam

Great and very useful lesson !

Stranger444

While Lamborghini is a wonderful car, I think that Ferrari also merits a minimum of consideration.
However, I think, it is much better to eat a pizza with friends in front of the beautiful bay of Naples rather than getting stuck in traffic alone.
Thank you for this difficult (for me) but very interesting lesson.

Riccardo S

Good lesson, as always.
Thanks Adam

PacoBe

Grammar is very sophisticated and It’s not easy to catch it up. Many thanks for this great important lesson, Adam.

Chloe.Lee

This is a bit confusing, but really important to learn. Thanks Adam!

Aleachi

This lesson is very interesting since it’s advanced english. Although I like it, I got a 6 under 10 because it’s kind of confusing. If I study more then I will get it. Thanks for this lesson so that people like us can understand better English language.

manuelacorredorb@gmail.com

The more clauses in the sentence , the more complex it gets . In fact there are sentences called complex sentence , but the hardest ones are the compound sentences, which are 3 clauses in one sentence. I think is one independent and 2 dependent clauses, , would you please tell us some about complex and compound sentences, I know a little bit on this kind of sentence, but I would like to polish myself on this material ,Thanks .

sox123

very interesting. Thanks Adam!

Menna Shehab 87

Very good

Amr shahat 222

Thanks, Adam.

Júlio César L Sousa

Mr Adam you are the only one who knows this language.

Thanks Adam

Aweysalqarni

Hi Adam. Is possible to say “so” instead of “so that”. I love the way you explain in your videos. Greetings 😊

Rosa 7

    Hi Rosa,

    So alone is a coordinating conjunction, so make sure you have two independent clauses on either side.

    Adam

Hi Adam! You know? I have found it really challenging to fully understand the lessons about clauses ( I’ve seen them all) but the way you explain them is like a comfort ’cause you know exactly how to do it so that your students may get them. Let me tell you that I am really into grammar. So a big thank you to you Adam! I really appreciate what you do because teachers today aren’t sincerely interested on the student’s progress and you do. Please keep doing your best!💛💛

blueapplee

By the way I’ve got a question: In your last sentence you said that the word ‘there’ is the subject. So my question is how the word ‘there’ can be used as a subject? Thanks Adam! 😊

blueapplee

    Hi Blueapples,

    Firstly, thank you :)

    There (and it) are preparatory subjects.I will make a lesson about this as it’s important but can be confusing.

    Adam

    I think we could write like this.
    “You should stay home because it will be trouble if you go there”.

    We can think of the clause “if you go there” as a noun (may be the subject) which was used in old English.

    For example, To remember your telephone number is easy. It can be changed into “It is easy to remember your telephone number”.

    I hope it will help you to understand.
    Cheers John

    MooreJohn90

thanks Adam, the exam is very good,
I’m just practicing…
It helped me a lot

JuanF7

I’m a good learner.

Luis Rojas

I got 7/10 not bad but I will try again

rosanita

This advanced level of grammar isn’t easy, I have doubted many times, overall with the relationship of contrast, I haven’t understood it very well yet, but I think it’s a matter of chance to find all those adverb clauses, the problem is that you may be in trouble when you remember that a conjunction of a relationship works out with another different relationship, I believe it’s a question of deep more than remembering a conjunction word, then you have to study hard if you want to improve this subject. Thanks a lot, teacher Adam, this advanced lesson has been a brainstorm.

angardiobel

    A conjunction in the relationship of contrast may be “however”, I have been thinking on it…

    angardiobel

      Hi Angardiobel,

      However serves the same function, but it is not a conjunction. It is a linking word or transition. It’s placement can vary. I’ll make a lesson about this.

      Adam

ok thanks

yuser44

“Although I have been studying English for many years, sometimes I think that it is all Greek to me.”

Júlio César L Sousa

thank you .. but what the different between REASON and CAUSE ??

mahmoudedlbi

    Hi Mahmoud,

    They can sometimes be the same thing, but reason involves an element of intent (why) whereas cause is a trigger (what).

    Does this help?

    Adam

Hi, good evening, like the idea of the lesson, advanced, but poor developed for a general mix of English level students, few and not clear examples/advances examples only. BTW: Wear a polo shirt out of the drier is OK for teenager on day off not for a professional international Teacher.

eduardom49

It was very hard I don’t understand it

amirrezaee

    It takes time and practice, Amirrezaee. Keep trying. It will come to you ;)

    Adam

Hello,

The lesson was really nice, I´ve been watching your videos for so long, today I decided to subscribe to get more English information. I just did my test of adverb clauses, this has been a struggle subject for me and the result wasn´t good at all. But I know I must to practice as much as I can.
Thank you for this lovely webside!

Best regards!

Diana Rueda

Sandibel

Hi everyone! Although I’m stressed at work these day, I’ve found several minutes for watching the video. Since it’s very useful, I’d recommend my friends not to pass it by. I knew that Kotoz is banned, unfortunately… but where nkh is?

nataanna

    Kotoz is not banned, but I am manually approving his comments for the time being, so they may take longer to show up. nkh last commented here.

Sir please clarify my doubt

A person who knows many foreign languages?

1.linguist. 2.grammarian
3.polyglot. 4.bilingual

Simha143

    Polyglot Simha :)

    Adam

“Polyglot” is one who can speak several foreign languages. “Bilingual” can speak two languages fluently. “Linguist” studies or interested in foreign languages. Luck!

KATRIN777

    Thanks for your reply mam. Many of my friends are asking me what the correct option is. I think it is a difficult
    qquestion b

    Simha143

    Good answer Katrin ;)

    Adam

Sir please give me answer to my above question.please

Simha143

Sir Adam, I think, i am gonna be the fastest as well as the biggest fan of your teaching method in English so far.
Your words are so easily understandable what i did not even understand in my academic life.

relaz69

Adam, could you please make a video on the participle forms such like doing, being done, having done, done, having being done and how to use them correctly??? I would be super grateful and I’ sure that many others too.

Andrew

    Exactly I also asked teacher to make a video on such topics a thousands years ago but he still has’t made the one. I hope he listen to our request before my hair turns grey😊

    eichi

      Lol. Don’t worry, it’ll come ;)

      Adam

    I’ll get on this, Andrew.

    Adam

      O, thank you, thank you very much, Adam!!!

      Andrew

Thanks Adam! 7 of 10! Think i need to practice a bit more.

Hello teacher,Hello engVid moderator and hello all my dearest friends after a few days gape I am back now.Scince its Easter tomorrow so I would like to wish all of you over there.Happy Easter teacher,Happy Easter moderator and to all my dearest friends including nataanna,Skikda, Soei,nkh and others.My best wishes are for all of you specially for our one and only great teacher Adam.May the day bring lots of hapiness to your life.I wish I could gift you a Lamborghini on this special day but since its tooooo expensive so I can only pray to Almighty that he bestow you every thing that you ever wish for including thousands of Lamborghinis, rather you become the owner of this brand Ameen.Although these are only words but I believe when words combine and make a prayer then this become the world’s most powerful weapon that can even shake the mountains.I remember my mother’s words,she says I prayer can make a slave a king.May God accept my prayers and bestow you everything I asked.My best wishes and regards for all on this forum.

eichi

    Thank you Eichi. Best prayers to you as well :)

    (btw, I agree about the edit option– I make my fair share of mistakes too.)

    Adam

Let me correct my mistake I wrote ‘I prayer’ instead of ‘a prayer’.And please Engvid moderator do something for there should be an editing option in your comment box because once we make a mistake we have no other choice but to make a cofession in another comment and apology to all instead of just editing our mistakes.please, this surely is not an uphill task for you.

eichi

    Glad to see you’re back, eichi! I will ask about adding an edit option.

    engVid Moderator

      Thank you so much Moderator.

      eichi

    Welcome, Doc John :)

    Adam

Explaining clearly than Chinese,thank you Teacher Adam

hardEnglishlearner

Hi,could you please teach me how can I use nonfinite verb.

it is very hard to me.

Vincelv

Hi, Adam
I got 2 false out of 10 and confusing about these two letters below when we say the relationship between sentences
(contrast & comparison)

for #6. Adverb clauses must have a relationship with an independent clause.

sorry I cannot say what type of matter I met in this question…(maybe it is a YES or No question about whether the Adv clause is important to the main sentence)
I remember you say it as a subordinated clause, -less important than the main sentence. (so I believe it includes Adj clauses, Adv clauses, noun clauses and others auxiliaries/or accessories under the main clause), but why we use the emotional verbs’MUST’ in the sentence?
it would be better for using ‘might’

Ex: It is raining outside although not having thunder, (but)I have to buy some tiny things at a store nearby my house.
I thought this Adv clause totally has none of the relationships to the main sentence. But, I have to add it to explain what I meant as I mentioned before.(hope you catch it.)
so can we say it in other words:
Adv words are a part of one sentence, meanwhile, Adv clauses are a part of one compound sentence. they only show their structure relationship to the main sentence, but might not be involved in some logical relationship to the main sentence.

I very apologized to my long-run trash letters.

Yours
sincerely

simon@Beijng

    Hi Simon,

    I’m sorry, but I am not 100% sure what you meant. I’ll try anyway:

    It is raining outside, although there is no thunder, but I have to buy some small things at a store near my house.

    You have 3 clauses in the sentence– an independent clause, an adverb clause (although), and another independent clause joined by a coordinating conjunction (but).

    It is raining although it is not raining very hard (I know this because there is no thunder), but I have to go shopping (contrast – raining but I have to go outside).

    Does this help at all?

    Adam

well, I have to say Adm, Rebecca and, James
you all concentrate me in your lessons for your graceful tones and coherence (I am very very like this Frequency:) thanks, to all of you)
Indeed, other lectures have their miracle personality in their speech when I watched the recordings, I will catch it~

BTW, I prefer to use ‘confused’ instead of ‘confusing’ in letters above,

simon@Beijng

Very good lessons. Thanks a lot. I always have troubles with conjunctions. Please make more lessons and exercises about them

Taleya

Hi Adam! I’m a new student of yours (but probably the oldest one :-D ). I find your lessons really useful and I love your way of teaching, yet, as an Italian, I can’t avoid being a little angry with you… You said that pizza is unhealthy, and in a less recent lesson you called it “junk-food”! I can’t even imagine what kind of pizza you’re used to eating in Canada, but I’m sure that if you come to Italy you’ll change your mind: the real italian pizza is not only good, but also healthy, take it from me! ;-) Ok, I’m just joking, of course, I’m not really angry with you, indeed, you’re my favourite teacher in engvid.com! Take care and see you soon!

sandra55

    Hi Sandra,

    If you came to Canada and saw our pizza you would be very angry indeed :)

    Actually, pizza is my favourite food, but here it actually is unhealthy. I’ve been to Italy and had many great pizzas there, so I know what you mean :)

    Adam

Hi sir I m from India I always used to start my English prepration with your videos. Thank you so much I have no word to thank you before I watched so many videos of other. But one day I got your video and watched n listen then I noticed that now I found what I actually want I like the way u teaching or expressing the things very clearly some time u make me laugh also when u using some funny examples I think this is best teacher I have.

OsiZuza

thanks

warsame766

Thanks for your good lesson, Adam. I would like to ask that what’s the difference between ‘whereas’ and ‘but’. Thank you in advance!

ijunglee

Hi Adam. I have a few questions.

1. What is the main difference between Adverb and Adverbial? For example, if we look at this sentence: “I rarely eat pizza”, I can say that “I” is a subject, “eat” is a verb, and “pizza” is an object. Should I say that “rarely” is an Adverb or Adverbial? What word is more correct in this case?

2. Here is the sentence: “The girl who sold me the car said it was hers”. The adjective clause is “who sold me the car”. Can we say that the whole adjective clause is a complement to the word “girl”? Can Adjective Clauses be only complements in a sentence?

3. “She was really happy that I met the right person” . In this sentence I would like to know how I should call this clause: “I met the right person”. What term is more correct for the clause, “complement” or “dependent clause”?

If someone ask me to tell about each word in the sentence, I will answer following:

She – subject
was – verb
really – adverbial
happy – subject complement
that – conjunction
I – subject
met – verb
the right person – object

Is that correct?

Thanks

Elhameh

Is adverb clause same thing as conjunction ?Because I’m using these words when I speak with someone else all the time ,for the beginning of this lesson you mentioned that today’s lesson we are going to look at a adverb clause then it switched to reason,contrast,condition,time,purpose,comparison.How could I understand?As I’m studying writing English more so that check the mistakes,I’ve write now.Please correct my grammar.Thanks

Hi Adam! First of all, thank you for you great job! Your lessons are extremely helpful.
But I have a suggestion to prepare a couple of lessons about Complex Object and Complex Subject.
Also, it would be very helpful to see a lesson devoted to the word order in the english tense (I mean, when the indirect object follows by the direct one, when vice versa, maybe some other special cases..)

VadimV

Hi Adam,

Thanks for your video which is very useful.I have a question about the sentence that followed indown:

She was a celebrated actress whom he had known and loved, on and off, almost since her first appearance on the stage

Hi, Adam. I enjoy your videos a lot. Your explanations are cristal clear.
I’d like to ask a question about this sentence:
“Have you ever had an accident where your car overturned?”

I got a little confused because of the use of “where”. Shouldn’t that be “which”?

Thanks.

Adam, since your tutorials are so good, I watch them so often! Although learning English takes a lot of time, I often do this to improve my English skills. If I were lazy, I would not have learned about adverb clauses today. After I get my salary, I will donate for the good of this website. Even though my comment may sound strange, it is a very good practice of what we just have learnt :) Thank you Adam again!

misogun

Dear Mr Adam. In a previous lesson called “The Adjective Clause” I noticed you said that you were a grammar purist and you hate to see the collocation “the reason why”. It was at 08:55 time point.
But in this lesson you use this collocation yourself at the time point 06:50.
How come? 🙂

Roman

Hello Adam! Your classes are really nice! I am improving my english a lot! Thank you very much!

Hi! do you have sentences in which I can identify the adverb clauses?

jdebbiea55

Question, does each subject and verb in a sentence signify a clause?

jdebbiea55

    Yea… a subject and a tense verb makes a clause .

Hi Adam I have a question how ‘it’ is a dummy subject give example

Atul Pandey

Hi Adam , On Youtube, In the seccond last example of this lesson ” joe took a week off so that his wife could take a training course”, Could you kindly tell why is there no comma brfore ” so” ????

Gulsa

7/10! Few mistakes! I will make note for this lesson.

Jerry Gu

Isn’t “After many attempts” just a phrase since it doesn’t contain a subject and a verb? Don’t all clauses (subordinate and independent) need to contain a subject and verb?

Barness

One more question, Adam. In the sentence below, can you tell me if “as its name implies” is a clause or a phrase? Houston Cancer Treatment Center, as its name implies, treats cancer patients.
If it is a clause, please tell me which kind. Thank you so much.

Hi Adam, You are indeed an excellent teacher: i practice your work every day. Am always excited to try the quizzes, but always scared to see the results, because of the level of your work. But by committing to daily practice, i am having improvements, and success in my assignments. my quiz grade has improved significantly also, i just want to say thank you.
