Thank you Mr.Adam
I got a lot of new words from this video-lesson. I just wanna try to use these words while I am driving.
:)

    Hi Adam, how’ve you been? Long tine no see.

    Road trips sound interesting, however . . . how safe are the roads in Canada Adam?

    If all of the sudden you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and see a vehicle approaching . . . are you sure they are going to help you out? I have serious reservations about it.

    Just one observation Adam, as far as I know GPS stands for Global Positioning SYSTEM not satelite.

    Thanks for this supeb video-lesson Adam. Have a great weekend!

    Saturday, May 6th 2017

      Hi Regino,

      Long time indeed ;)

      Firstly, I believe that Canadians would actually stop and help you out. At least, I’d like to think so.

      As for GPS, you’re right. Actually , it’s global positioning satellite system. Not sure why I tend to drop the system not the satellite. Anyway, good point.

      Wednesday, May 24th 2017

    Now we are ready hit the road.Thanks

    Sunday, May 7th 2017

Great lesson. Thanks, Adam.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

You’re simply the best. I’m always looking for your new lessons. Thanks, Adam.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

I finished the test with the best mark. Now im loking formard for you next video. Hello from Ukraine :))

Saturday, May 6th 2017

ohh i’m very sory

Saturday, May 6th 2017

Thank you so much for giving me the English lesson.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

    I want to know how to learn english at this? I don’t see the video, where is it?

    Thursday, May 18th 2017

      Hi there! According to your profile you’re in China. All our videos are on YouTube, which is blocked there. You may have to use a VPN or find a mirror to watch the videos.

      Friday, May 19th 2017

      ok,I konw,thanks

      Friday, May 19th 2017

      Hi Adam,good job!I wanna ask you an extra question, if we can write the “to do something” after ANY transitive verb with an objective.Such as “I VT somebody TO DO SOMETHING”(VT here means a transitive verb). I am very looking forward to your reply.Thanks.

      Tuesday, May 23rd 2017

        Hi Patrick,

        You can use ‘to do something’ as a complement to the direct object or as an object itself to the transitive verb.

        I need to call my mother.(object)
        I need you to call my mother. (complement to object ‘you’)

        Does this help?

        Wednesday, May 24th 2017

I truly believe this is a pragmatic lesson for all those who are planning to go on road trips, whereas, I’m from a small island in the Caribbean and usually we are completely careless about those good advices. I love you Adam! Thanks!

Saturday, May 6th 2017

Thanks a lot, Mr.Adam , very useful lesson, full of the new vocabularies.
but, if you don’t mind Sir, would you make a lesson about the ” Tourism” and the words and vocabulary that we need to know.
Thank you again, Sir.Adam, and we always appreciate your effort.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

    I’ll see what I can do, Antar. In the meantime, look for the search button on this site and type the word ‘travel’–you will see a few good videos here already about this topic.

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Thanks, Adam

Saturday, May 6th 2017

Scenic route is always the best choice when we have time.It’s the less boring:)
Thanks Adam for this useful lesson.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

Hi Adam! nice lesson! thanks. You made me travel in imaginary. My longest road trip was in California, I drove more than 1600 km part of them on the scenic route 1.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

    I’d love to take that trip someday Jorge. On a motorcycle maybe :)

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

“L/100km” will be more correct.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

    In the US they might not understand you Happyman ;)

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Very useful and complete explanation about road trips in English, very entertained and amused, we can imagine us traveling a long journey or long haul trip between two cities in a big country or continent. Very interesting lesson overall for the people who even work as professional drivers too, very interesting class. Thanks a lot, teacher Adam, we are learning and enjoying the English as if it was our own main or first language.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

Thank you very much Adam for this useful lesson for me . I have a RV an I love to travel with my family around Europe.
But I thought that these vehicles were called also motorhome .
Might have more names depending if we are in UK or America ?
Here we have also small vans , called ” camper ” in Spain with kitchen and beds . I don’t know if these vehicles exist also in America and how does it called .

Saturday, May 6th 2017

    Good point, Cascoxa. We have these names as well, but less commonly used. regional word choice does make a difference indeed.

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Thank you! I found many new words such as “itinerary”, as I understood it means the same thet “route”. Probably few people knew such word as “wheat”. The most importante that if you are interesting while you are lisening it will have result. I went to such trip every year with my wife or friends, in one or two cars, it was inside of Ukraine from Kiev to Krimea until Russia invaded to this part of my country. The distance is about 1000 km, climate is warmer, other view, mountains, sea and good time with close friends, it was olways full of fun.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

Thanks, Adam.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

Good lesson. Thank you very much.

Saturday, May 6th 2017

Perfect Adam and, perhaps one day, you’ll talk about your bad experience on a road trip. A road trip across the Canada should be a very interesting souvenir.
Thank you

Sunday, May 7th 2017

So many new words. Thank you, Adam.

Sunday, May 7th 2017

Thanks Adam it’s very nice lesson, appreciated

Sunday, May 7th 2017

Sunday, May 7th 2017

100%=) It’s very useful lesson. Thank you Adam.

Sunday, May 7th 2017

Only once, I’ve got caught for speeding. Of course there was a fxxxxx speed trap. Police is so evil that I hate it. It cost me 15,000 yen (approximately 150 dollars). It was totally ridiculous.
So I no longer drive too fast since then, and am trying not to get caught for it.

Sunday, May 7th 2017

    Probably safer for you too, Juneriver ;)

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

100 … thank you Adam

Sunday, May 7th 2017

Adam, regarding Recreational Vehical, can I call them as motor-home?

Sunday, May 7th 2017

    Yes, you can, Dudurito.

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

hi, vocab videos like this one are really great for learners. but it would be better if you add the words and phrases that in the video. and maybe add to memrise.com too. it would be greater :D

Sunday, May 7th 2017

    I’ll pass this on to the administrators Angelsdemos ;)

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Thanks a lot Adam!!!Very interesting lesson.
Just one question: how much is one litre of the most used petrol by cars in Canada??

Sunday, May 7th 2017

    Hi Knopfler,

    Do you mean the price? Today, 1 liter of regular unleaded gas is C$1.15. (87 octane)

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Thank you so much Adam)

Sunday, May 7th 2017

Thank you so much!!

Sunday, May 7th 2017

I definitely agree with you, Adam, because enjoying a long and pleasant road trip, driving my car, is surely the best way of travelling that I know.
We don’t have the (almost) infinite distances that you have in Canada, but consider that Italy is almost 2.000 kilometers long from the Alps to the extreme South; and, moreover, from here we can reach by car distant countries like Greece, Turkey, Spain, Portugal, the scandinavian peninsula and more.
Greetings from Europe,ciao!

Monday, May 8th 2017

    I would love to do a road trip in Europe, Canardo. Maybe some day :)

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Thanks a lot! Mr. Adam
Your lesson very useful. We found many new vocabularies here especially to me as learner. As far as I concerned, MPG depend on brand of cars exactly asia cars difference Europa cars to need consumtion of petrol.

Monday, May 8th 2017

    Hi Jon,

    In the US they us imperial measures. Most of the rest of the world uses metric (L/100km). Good to know both.

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Thanks,very interesting lesson

Monday, May 8th 2017

Tuesday, May 9th 2017

Great lesson, Adam! I’ve got a question what is the difference between carpool lane and hov lane? And what is the reason for having those lanes? What does it influence? Thank you!

Wednesday, May 10th 2017

    Hi Polluxtroi,

    Essentially, they are the same. Both are reserved for cars that carry two or more passengers. The idea is to discourage single-user car use (only driver) and thereby reduce emissions and traffic congestion.

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Thank you Adam.

Wednesday, May 10th 2017

Hi Adam,good job!I wanna ask you an extra question, if we can write the “to do something” after ANY transitive verb with an objective.Such as “I VT somebody TO DO SOMETHING”(VT here means a transitive verb). I am very looking forward to your reply.Thanks.

Tuesday, May 23rd 2017

Thank you teacher for such great informative lesson, It was amazing cause there wasn’t any grammar,this clause and that clause in it, rather I would say you should teach only conversation and not the grammar because once we learn the language we will automatically learn its grammar like the natives do,don’t you think? Its been long since I have been learning this language but I couldn’t yet get a hold on it because when ever I try to speak it I get confused with the grammar rules and that affects my fluency and because of that I recently lost an opportunity of getting job at the American consulate…so sad.Teacher please help me and guide me how I can improve my English speaking skills without getting involved in the grammar.And please do tell me about my writing level I mean what do you think my English writing level is? Is it beginner or even more worst.I didn’t even dare apply for the job because they asked for speaking, writing and reading level of the language while I don’t even know what my level really is.I am so disappointed teacher cause there are no good English teaching institutions in my country whatever I have learnt so far is with my own hard work but am still unable to speak the language fluently and there for unable to get a good job at a good organisation despite all skills and abilities I have.I need your detailed guidance.here is my email address : eichikhan@yahoo.com

Tuesday, May 23rd 2017

    Hi Eichi (nice pic lol)

    Actually, your English writing is quite good. And you’re right, too much focus on grammar often takes away from students’ fluency in spoken English. As for writing, it is essential to know the grammar rules.

    If you want to know your “official” level, you can take a test, such as the Cambridge tests, or the IELTS.

    Ideally, you need to find someone to practice speaking with. You can also listen to interviews and take the part of the interviewee and try to mimic his or her responses; pay attention to intonation, pace, stress, etc. If you can find transcripts and follow along the first time then repeat, that might work.

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Thanks Adam. It’s easy to understand in this section for an non-native English speaker.

Tuesday, May 23rd 2017

Thanks Adam.
That reminds me my road trip experience in AU.

Tuesday, May 23rd 2017

Hi Adam .I have been listening to your YouTubes for a long time. I got your lesson about the adjective and noun clause. I have also been reading a novel and from that I found the following sentence which I can not recognize if it is adec

Wednesday, May 24th 2017

    ……if it is adjective or noun clause. .
    It was like that was so imamazing
    Could you please explain it and where is the conjunction here

    Wednesday, May 24th 2017

      Hi Alor82,

      To be honest, I’m not sure what this sentence is saying to be honest. Can you give the sentence or a couple of sentences before it as well?

      Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Thanks everyone,

Just a quick note (thanks to Regino for pointing it out):
GPS is global positioning satellite system. Not sure why I tend to drop the system not the satellite (global positioning system). Anyway, keep the system, drop the satellite if you want ;).

Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Hi Adam and thanks for replying
“The night before, she had freaked when Muhammad Ali, who was cumming out of retirement to try to become the first four-time world heavyweight Champion, was beaten convincingly by the current champ Larry Holmes.It was like that was symbolic.”
the last sentence I asked you about.
and I have another confusion sentence I will ask:
“i was so glad Id tolerated those Teddy Kennedy posters on my Jeep and that I had not make an issue about my own political opinions.Because for the first time, I felt that I really, truly had a partner.” before these two sentences the author had told how the mentioned man has attracted his partner. and the question is about the second sentence I think there “Because” should be completed with extra sentence. It does make scene but the structure does not convince me. Thanks for your patient.
Ali

Thursday, May 25th 2017

you mentioned in the noun clause lesson about type of clause comes after the adjective working as adjective complement and it called noun clause as well. but in the lesson of dependent clause you mentioned to cause called that clause and you separated it as a dependent clause different from noun clause. That a bit confused me could you please explain it.I am too greedy in learning as I know all the lessons is free.

Thursday, May 25th 2017

I ,herein, have to mention that I learned from engvid more than I learned from log term curse I had taken. The way you explain is the thing Ive gotten familiar with.So I do not like to ask some body else to address my weakness in English to avoid any confusion.
