Hello Adam! I have a request. Could you please make a video on neither (nor), either (or) and both. Thank you!

Sunday, September 17th 2017

Hello Adam ,
Thank you for this lesson
I have never taken time to practice math terms in english although it is very useful , even in every day life especialy when you want to describe the shape of something and give its dimensions or to describe how you get a result .
Let us confirm that sum , difference , product and quotient can be named result .
See you

    Indeed, they can Tsamp ;)

Hello Adam.I am a Asian.My English level is at B1 level.what topics should I really have to know for getting 7 band in IELTS

Monday, September 18th 2017

    Hi Doloran,

    It’s not about topics as much as it is about vocabulary. To get band 7 you need enough vocab to be able to read, talk about, or write about any topic.

    Friday, October 6th 2017

I got 10 out of 10
;)

Monday, September 18th 2017

Dear Adam,

10:4=2,5 (not 2,2)

:-)

Monday, September 18th 2017

    I advice you to think a bit before giving the stupid comment)

    Monday, September 18th 2017

      Hi Klim,

      It’s better to explain than to attack ;)

      Friday, October 6th 2017

    Hi Adriana,
    You misunderstood Adam’s explanation. Ten divided by four is two, and the REMAINDER is two. That is 2×4 + 2, or: 10/4 = 8/4 + 2/4 = 2 + 2/4; the fractional part is 2/4, and 2 is called the remainder.
    D.

    Monday, September 18th 2017

      Yes, I see it, I am so stupid.

      Monday, September 18th 2017

        No worries, Adrianna. Sometimes it’s worth watching twice ;)

        Friday, October 6th 2017

It is a great class! I have worked as a math teacher in bilingual schools in Colombia and I improved my prononciation with this video. Thanks a lot. Is it possible to scratch physics, chemistry and other topics as well as maths? thanks again, you are a great teacher!

Monday, September 18th 2017

    I’ll see what I can do Pesabe7.

    Friday, October 6th 2017

Wow!Useful lesson, You remind me the school :).

Monday, September 18th 2017

    Yesterday we won the match and we boarded to the world cup 2018 in your country ( Russia ) . is it easy to travel to Russia 4 watching the world cup

    Monday, October 9th 2017

      i have no idea about it, sorry. i don`t travel in Russia, i live here.

      Monday, October 9th 2017

        ok thanks for your reply , i am going to travel to Russia in June 2018 , may be i can see you there

        Monday, October 9th 2017

          don`t think so. Russia is huge, World Cup will be not in my city).

          Monday, October 9th 2017

          ok thanks again

          Monday, October 9th 2017

that is a useful lesson. thanks a lot!

Monday, September 18th 2017

Thank you for your effort

Monday, September 18th 2017

ok Adam,you are so skilled in teaching that we can manage to digest,for once, such a boring matter as math..thank you, as usual.

Monday, September 18th 2017

very useful course

Monday, September 18th 2017

Oh! 5/10 this time. My bad…
I’m afraid I couldn’t absorb many of those math terminology even though you did the great lesson in clear way. Despite, I’m interested about using decimal at sport event announcement.
Thanks Teacher Adam.

Monday, September 18th 2017

that’s what i was looking for ,thanks a lot Adam

Monday, September 18th 2017

Thank you Adam, very useful !!! :)

Funny tongue-twister in your video at approx. min 5:50 (about the fraction 5/12)
Good to know that native speakers have sometimes also the problems with so many consonants.
Especially me too in combination with -th- :)))))

Monday, September 18th 2017

great!!! I am Electronic Engineer, and this lesson
it is very useful, thanks a lot !!!!!

Monday, September 18th 2017

Thank you for the lesson a lot!
1. What do we call a root less than cubed? Like the opposite of “2 to the 4th power”. And how is “power” of root called?
2. Are non-parallel lines (on a surface, in planimetry) called intersected?
Thanks.

Monday, September 18th 2017

    Hi Cam,

    Each root can be expressed as follows: n-th root (x) = x^(1/n). The n-th root of x equals to x to the power of 1/n. So the term is “the n-th root of x”.

    In the Euclidean plane, parallel lines never intersect. If they are not parallel, eventually they will intersect somewhere in the place. Check this one out:https://www.quora.com/Can-two-parallel-lines-intersect

    By the way, if you are interested in maths in English, coursera.org is a great resource of online courses.

    Hopy you find this helpful.
    Cheers,
    David.

    Monday, September 18th 2017

      *somewhere in the PLANE.

      Monday, September 18th 2017

    Hi cam,
    I’ve written you an explanation. It is waiting to be approved by engVid. Hope it appears here soon.
    D.

    Monday, September 18th 2017

      Thanks! I’ll be waiting:)

      Monday, September 18th 2017

    Hi Cam,

    David gave a very good explanation. As far as roots go, I’m not all that clear beyond square root and cubed root. then it starts to get complicated. Better to find a good math textbook for the finer details.
    As for lines, if they are not parallel, they will eventually intersect as David mentioned.

    Friday, October 6th 2017

Thanks Adam! I was looking for a lesson like that! I’m a student of Engineering and I didn’t know how to discribe someting in math. Now I know \0/

Monday, September 18th 2017

thanks teacher Adam

Monday, September 18th 2017

Don´t be so modest Adam. You´re an expert on maths!!!And also a great English teacher. What I didn´t know about you was your knowledge in philosophy. It would be interesting that you teach the basis of the philosophy history ;)

Monday, September 18th 2017

    Thanks Knopler. Not too sure this can be done in a short lesson other than to introduce the main thinkers. I’ll see what I can do, tough.

    Friday, October 6th 2017

Great lesson, I really need it, You deserve thousands of thanks.

Monday, September 18th 2017

Hi Adam! Talking of shapes, in portuguese the word egg is ‘ovo’, so when we say something has a ‘oval’ shape it means that thing has a shape similar an egg (ovo). This is interesting that in English oval is oval… Thanks!

Monday, September 18th 2017

Te lesson was very crear. Thank you

Monday, September 18th 2017

Very interesting! I know everything about math you taught us in the video but the point is ‘English math terminology’ and that’s exactly what I learned in this lesson. It was very useful!
Thank you very much Adam.

Monday, September 18th 2017

Congratulations Adam. It will be useful for me .Everyone needs math and sometimes we deal with things there are a lot of terms related to numbers and statistics , even if you work with stuffs very different from maths. A lawyer , a taxi driver , a dentist , all of us aplly math routinely but without awareness. This class was a great idea!

Tuesday, September 19th 2017

I got 09/10. Adam you forgot to tell us about “base ” in geometry . The side opposite to perpendicular is hypotenuse. And the 3rd one side is called ” base”. This lesson brings me back to my golden time ☺ I really enjoyed by memorizing it. Nice lesson. Thanks a lot.

Tuesday, September 19th 2017

Thank you Adam, I love math.

Tuesday, September 19th 2017

The word “plus” is Latin. Is it right to pronounce it as it is written?
Thanks for your answer.
Very useful lesson, Adam.

Tuesday, September 19th 2017

    Hi Byte,

    Plus like bus (with an l) in English. In French it’s plu (ploo). Not sure about the Latin ;)

    Friday, October 6th 2017

Very thanks. I wish you success

Tuesday, September 19th 2017

Thanks.

Tuesday, September 19th 2017

Thank you Adam… I need more classes like that, but a little bit more pronunciation.

Wednesday, September 20th 2017

    I’ll work on it Rodrigo ;)

    Friday, October 6th 2017

Excellent lesson! Thank you so much!

Wednesday, September 20th 2017

thanks teacher for the lesson everything was clear for me .

Wednesday, September 20th 2017

Hello Adam,
Could you make a video on Seek, Find and Search?
Please sir I have a request, because I’m always confuse in that words.
Thank You.

Thursday, September 21st 2017

    Hi Rahul,

    Don’t be afraid to look things up in a dictionary and look for sample sentences to demonstrate.

    Seek = look for something specific (especially a goal) (seek one’s happiness)
    find = reach your goal of looking for
    search = look for something specific or look in a specific place (search for information, search in books)

    Does this help?

    Friday, October 6th 2017

hello teacher.please tell me if my sentence is correct.
I was an interesting person for others some time back.
but these days “I am missing being interesting”.
Here we have continues form and gerund and after that adjective.plzz tell me if it is right. thank u

Thursday, September 21st 2017

    Hi Ghost Rider,

    We don’t use ‘miss’ in a continuous form. This is a state verb(like love, think, believe, etc.)

    I miss being interesting = I am no longer interesting, but I ant to be.

    Is this what you had in mind?

    Friday, October 6th 2017

A basic level of maths as a really interesting explanation and very useful for English students, this video class remembered me the elementary school when I used to start thinking about all these concepts. Thank a lot, teacher Adam, a very sweet video class about maths.

Thursday, September 21st 2017

Adam, if I’m talking about the gas price, for ex, imagine that it is US$ 1.24, I think I can say ‘one dólar and twenty four cents per liter, but could I say ‘one point twenty four’ or should I say ‘one point two four’?

Thursday, September 21st 2017

    Hi Dudunto,

    Because money is discussed pretty much every day, it has understood terms. You would likely say gas costs a dollar twenty-four. If you want to be precise, you can say it costs a dollar and twenty-for cents. Money doesn’t use ‘point’ as the point is simply the distinction between dollars and cents.

    Does this help?

    Friday, October 6th 2017

Thank you Adam. It is really useful lesson.

Friday, September 22nd 2017

what is up?

Monday, September 25th 2017

Thank you, Adam!!!

Thank you.
very usefull lesson

Thursday, September 28th 2017

Thanks for nice comprehensive lesson about mathematics and geometry, could I recommend to add a dashboard to monitor my watched videos and pan my future ones. It would be wonderful. great effort and very good team.

Thursday, September 28th 2017

    I’ll pass this idea on to the administrators Aloraby.

    Friday, October 6th 2017

    This is coming in the near future. Make sure you always watch while logged in, even now, so that you will benefit when we make this feature available on the website.

    Friday, October 6th 2017

thanks a lot,it was very useful! but i don`t understand about average\mean

Friday, September 29th 2017

    Hi Grypis,
    If one child is 10 years old and another child is 12 years old, their average age is 11.

    mean is essentially the same.

    Friday, October 6th 2017

Hi sir Adam…i really like all your videos here at engvid.com… can I ask you a favor? Actually, I am planning to take the IELTS maybe this coming December..My reading is very poor..can you give me some tips or website that i can study what are some strategy to get..I think I am running out of time when i start to read the text because its very hard to find the answers..can you help me?I really appreciate your help…Thanks..

Sunday, October 1st 2017

    thank u Adam very useful lesson

    Monday, October 2nd 2017

    Hi Darwin,

    There are some good videos on this site. You can do a search here. You can also get some tips from my other site:
    https://writetotop.com/ielts/ielts-reading/

    Hope this helps.

    Friday, October 6th 2017

Thanks

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

Thanks.

Thursday, October 5th 2017

Thank you, Adam! Great lesson.
Please explain these phrases: “straight forward” and “cutting edge”. I think I don’t understand those at all.

Thursday, October 5th 2017

    Hi Alexander,

    Straightforward means simple, easy to understand, uncomplicated, direct.

    Cutting-edge means the latest/newest technology, method, etc.

    Does this help?

    Friday, October 6th 2017

      Hello Adam

      First of all I’d like to offer you my sincere gratitude for all the hard works you guys put in to create these videos and make them available to public. I’d also like to suggest something that I think would most certainly improve this website and also very beneficial to all the audience. The videos are great however in my opinion it would be really beneficial to everyone if you guys could make a PDF format of each lessons and the quizzes where we can download at the end of each video and print them out. This way we can make our own text book where we can study and perhaps highlight the parts we need to study/review more before our exams either TOEFL/IELTS or whatever it would be.

      Thank you in advance

      Thursday, October 19th 2017

Thanks everyone :)

Friday, October 6th 2017

    Yes, it’s become straightforward.
    Thank you a lot for your dedication. We learn a lot here.

    Saturday, October 7th 2017

Great lesson with a less math.

Friday, October 6th 2017

Hello Adam,

First, I would like to thank you for lesson. It is grat :) But I have one a note: If you use different numbers, equals will be more clearly (at least in my case).eg 1+2=3, or 2*3=6, or 12/3=4.
Thank you again and I’m back to learn English :)

Sunday, October 8th 2017

Hello Adam,
First I would like to think you veyr much for the diffentes lessons, I am back to learn English “the bigenner”.
thinks

Sunday, October 8th 2017

Although it’s a difficult lesson , i got 10 out of 10

Monday, October 9th 2017

I want to ask you about practicing the language and I have some questions about that .First,do you have a English community I mean like a chatting rooms if you have please let me know how to join it. If anyone knows any websites that can help me in practicing please leave the link of it.

Wednesday, October 11th 2017

Hi Adam:

Thank for this and all lessons that you have gave us, I like the math and this was a very interesting topic for me. ENGVID have a presential course for foreigners? I´m from Ecuador South America.
Alexi

Thursday, October 12th 2017

Thanks, Adam. Clear and objective lesson.

Saturday, October 14th 2017

Oh, God! I’ve done!!!!I got 90!I’m glad…I thought this would never end.

Sunday, October 15th 2017

As a math teacher, I’d say this lesson is very useful. I’ve never watched a lesson like this, with math terminology. I hope I can teach math in English some day, it’s one of my dreams! Though I know about math, I still need to improve my English.
