Hi Adam, hi everyone…
This is not much easy. I had a low score. But I guess I don’t know much about this material in my mother language. Studying a new language like english has been useful to improve my knowledge.
I know the same rules in my language. Some words are nouns, sometimes nouns and verbs, etc.
Thank you for assistance.

    Keep at it, Roberto. Many people don’t know the grammar of their own language. You just need to want to learn :)

Hi Adam… the word EXPRESS taken by itself and not in this spcific context.. can’t it be a noun? It could refer to a high speed train

Saturday, February 8th 2020

    Hi Maury.

    If you take the express, it’s actually just a shortcut for express train. So, adjective, but we use it as a noun if it’s obvious.

Saturday, February 8th 2020

    Hi Toufik,

    Check the search box on this site. We have a few business English lessons. We don’t really have any TOEIC lessons because this test is only useful in certain parts of the world and not applicable to most people.

    Anyway, good luck with it :)

Hi Adam! Can we use “run” as an adjective?
You said, adjective describes a noun.
How about “ runny nose”?
Runny nose is one of the respiratory problems of a human being.
It describes the noun nose. Isn’t it?

Wednesday, February 12th 2020

    Hi Mykulitz,

    Yes, runny is an adjective but run is a verb. Many words have different forms:
    beautiful (adj.), beauty (n.), beautify (v.), beautifully (adv.), beautification (n.), etc.

    Just make sure you have the right form.

    Wednesday, March 4th 2020

thank you Adam
i got 20 for the first time so i decide to listen video careful then i got 80 and i understand well different of adjective and nouns

Wednesday, February 12th 2020

Wednesday, February 12th 2020

    Hi Theodor,

    5-year-old boy is singular, 5-year-old boys is plural
    The boys is 5 years old.
    The boys are 5 years old.

    Hope this helps.

    Wednesday, March 4th 2020

Great class!

Hello dear Adam! At first i want to thank you for all of the videos that you’ve created. They’re very informative and useful. I want to ask you something. Could you please make a video (or even better, video series) about legal English? That would be fantastic. I am pretty sure that there are lots of law students out there, like me. Thanks a lot!

Thursday, February 13th 2020

    I’ll see what I can do Saul :)

    Keep trying Biplob. It’ll get easier.

Hi Adam,
For me a non-native English speaker it is difficult to identify the difference in the use of the following:
for example:
energy production
production of energy
I would like to know if there is a difference between them. I mean, when to use {production of energy}, and when {energy production}?
There are many more examples.

Wednesday, February 19th 2020

    Hi Donalicha,

    energy production– energy is a noun but it is acting as an adjective to production. IN this case production is the main focus.

    production of energy– both are acting as separate nouns. IN this case both nouns are equally important.

    I’ll try to make a lesson about this.

    Wednesday, March 4th 2020

      Thanks, Adam.

      It’ll be great if you make a lesson about this!

      Friday, March 13th 2020

      It will be great! Thanks Adam!

      Tuesday, May 12th 2020

Thank you Adam I was wondering if is there other way for a better understanding thanks again!

Wednesday, February 19th 2020

    Hi Litte Bear,

    I’m not sure about your question: a better understanding of this lesson?

    A good idea is to get a good grammar book with exercises to help you understand and practice.

    Wednesday, March 4th 2020

Cool! Thank you teacher.

Thursday, February 20th 2020

Thank you very much for the lesson. I got 9 out of 10 but I have a question about the last one.
I went to the Cambridge Dictionary and there is no definition of “online” as a noun. Could you explain this moment to me?

Thursday, February 27th 2020

I think that I have to start with very simple grammar lessons. All what we have learnt were totally forgotten. I will keep in touch with this program and thanks a lot for your devotion towards people who really need your help.

Friday, February 28th 2020

Interesting question, Roman.

I found this on dictionary.com:

Cultural definitions for online

A term referring to locations on or use of the Internet. The term can be used to refer to a specific location or Web page (“Our sales catalogues can be found online at — ”) or to a personal activity (“I went online to find the information you wanted.”)

Technically, it is not a real place, so maybe that’s why dictionaries don’t give it a noun assignment, though I’m sure this will eventually change.

Hope this helps.

Wednesday, March 4th 2020

Thank you everyone :)

Hi Alex. Great lesson, my score was 9/10. Are DETERMINERS part of speech? In some grammar books, I find 8 parts of speech. But in some others, I find 9. Determiners are part of them. What’s your view on that?

Saturday, March 7th 2020

    Hi Dionisis,

    There are different types of determiners. Think of a determiner in terms of function, not in terms of part of speech. Articles can be determiners, so can adjectives, so can pronouns. Articles, adjectives and pronouns are each a different part of speech but all are determiners.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, April 8th 2020

I got 8!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH MY DEAREST TEACHER.
My English is not good, but I really love your teaching and engVid lessons.

Tuesday, March 24th 2020

Hi Alex, I just wanted to thank you:)

Tuesday, March 24th 2020

Hi Adam, would you suggest a good grammar book?
