I got 9 correct out of 10 questions/ How about the sexual organs? Are they less important? )

Tuesday, October 30th 2018

    You can live without it, but – is it life?

    Wednesday, October 31st 2018

    Hi Valery,

    As Volodymyr mentioned, the sexual organs are not vital, meaning you can live without them. So, though not less important, they would be subject of a different video.

    Wednesday, November 21st 2018

thank you Adam.

Tuesday, October 30th 2018

That’s good lesson. I think using illustrations can help us to learn quickly and easily.

Tuesday, October 30th 2018

    Hi Iman,

    That’s probably true, but there are copyright issues to consider. You can do an online search for these. There’s lots out there ;)

    Wednesday, November 21st 2018

      Thank you for your lesson, it really is useful.
      But I have a question, umm… why do our bodies have such parts? And each part has a defect or not.
      I will support you forever, Adam. Thank you if you answer my question.

      Wednesday, September 4th 2019

I believe that “exhale” could be the correct answer in the question 6 as well.

Tuesday, October 30th 2018

    Yes, I think the same

    Tuesday, October 30th 2018

    Exalar (em português) é passivo (deixa sair)[como o perfume, uma fragrância]
    Expelir é ativo (botar para fora) [como um cálculo, urina, fezes etc.]

    Monday, November 5th 2018

    Yes, I think so.

    Monday, November 19th 2018

    Hi Marcio,

    That’;s a good point, though the lungs expel (get rid of). Generally we exhale from the mouth. The action involves more than just the lungs. Does this help?

    Wednesday, November 21st 2018

      We can say that “oxygen is inspired and carbon dioxide is expired by the lungs”, can’t we?

      Friday, December 7th 2018

        You could, but no-one really does. It’s more technical.

        Friday, January 4th 2019

great lesson thank you very much.

Great, Adam! Since now I won’t be afraid to talk to English-speaking doctor. Of course, I’d better be healthy!

    Wednesday, November 21st 2018

Thanks

Tuesday, October 30th 2018

Hello Adam~
I can not understand Whythe answer is *expel*, not *exhale*? Could you explain his? Thank you so much.

Tuesday, October 30th 2018

    Hi Carol,

    Good question. The lungs expel (get rid of). Generally we exhale from the mouth. The action involves more than just the lungs. Does this help?

    Wednesday, November 21st 2018

It was a very good lesson very useful for me, thanks Adam

Tuesday, October 30th 2018

it´s so good! hearing and remember about some subjects and finally to be checking the different meanings of words that sometimes can be easily confused.
Thanks.

Thanks, Adam.
I would like to ask “the popularity of social networks across/in/among all age groups is rising.” Which preposition should we use in this sentence?

Saturday, November 3rd 2018

    Hi, I would also like to ask in the following sentence ‘The government’s own Central Pollution Control Board lists 15 substances in fireworks which it says are “hazardous and toxic”.’ Why do we need to use it after which? Can we omit ‘it’? Then ‘which’ represents what and ‘it’ represents what? When do we need to use ‘it’ after ‘which’?

    Friday, November 9th 2018

      ‘which’ goes with fireworks, which of course can’t say anything. ‘it’ is the Board. Technically. which should be that ;)

      Can’t take ‘it’ out. Can rewrite like this:
      The government’s own Central Pollution Control Board lists 15 substances in fireworks that are “hazardous and toxic”. (the ‘it says’ is redundant).

      Wednesday, November 21st 2018

    Hi Sophie,

    I would use across, but like this:
    The popularity of social networks is rising across all age groups. (among can also be used, but across suggests a spectrum).

    Hope this helps.

Adam i have question, if i don’t know word where can i translate this word for georgian? i seen your youtub videos and i don’t use google translate and when i went oxforddictionary there is only english translate and i want to transalte for my tongue and can you help me?

Monday, November 12th 2018

    Hmm. Two good alternatives we know of, DeepL and Bing Translate, don’t have Georgian. Have you tried translate.ge?

    Monday, November 12th 2018

    Hi GiorgiKacho,

    I’m afraid I don’t know where to find Georgian, but the moderator’s suggestion might help.

    Wednesday, November 21st 2018

I know it has nothing to do with my body & organs, but could anyone please explain to me which of the following alternatives is (or are) correct: (1) a few hour instruction, (2) a few-hour instruction, (3) a few hours instruction or (4) a few hours’ instruction?

When I was writing a text a few days ago, I decided to go for the last option — though it was not any decision in the truest sense of the word but the very first and natural choice of mine which I had not pondered over for hours before making it… I just made it. Now, however, as I am proofreading the text, some doubts have arisen.

Options (1) and (3) are clearly wrong because of the lack of punctuation marks – the hyphen and the apostrophe, respectively. But what about the other two options? I read a post on the Internet (though the website was not a one I would call “a reliable source”) that “a few hours’ instruction” is an archaic and “more dramatic” (whatever it means) expression, and that the author of the post would basically never use it personally. But why? Whereas “a few hours’ instruction” has around 15,000 Google hits, “a few-hour instruction” has none…

Also, should I use the article “a” before “few hours’ instruction? Here (https://ell.stackexchange.com/questions/5577/should-you-say-hour-or-hours-in-this-type-of-sentence) one person says I should not.

Monday, November 12th 2018

    And one more thing: what about “a few(-)hours(-)LONG instruction”?

    Monday, November 12th 2018

    “A few hours’ instruction” may sound a bit more formal or old-fashioned in some situations, but it is correct. You can easily find similar examples, like “a few minutes’ work” or “a few hours’ drive” (though most people, even native speakers, get the punctuation wrong). A more natural way to say it might be “a few hours of instruction”.

    I’m not exactly sure why, but you generally only see compound adjectives like this with exact numbers (“a two-hour wait”, “two hours’ wait”), and not with words like “few” or “many”.

    Tuesday, November 13th 2018

      OK, so, generally, the possessive form is a bit more old-fashioned (and perhaps more British than American) but both are perfectly correct.

      Here: http://random-idea-english.blogspot.com/2014/01/a-ten-minute-walk-ten-minutes-walk.html, this is all well explained and exemplified, too.

      One should just pay attention to their punctuation and remember that before the possessive form there are no articles — it’s a two-hour instruction, but: it’s _ two hours’ instruction.

      Thanks, endVid

      Tuesday, November 13th 2018

    Hi Ernest,

    The moderator gave a good answer (a few hours’ instruction).

    When in doubt, change the structure:

    After receiving instructions for just a few hours, …

Tuesday, August 6th 2019

Hi Engvid Team,
could you please explain the difference between the word of ‘Expel’ and ‘Exhale’?

Wednesday, August 14th 2019

    Expel means “to push out”, not just physically. For example: “squids swim by expelling water behind them”, or “I was expelled from school because I got in a fight”.

    Exhale has a more specific meaning; it means “to breathe out”.
