Next Question


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


    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.


hi.thank you so much teacher .you’re my favorite teacher in videnglish ,as always you’re the best of the best .plesae .i have a question : could you plan lessons about business english ? i’d to pass TOEIC soon and i need some helps .thank you again .i apréciate your work a lot .great job


    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 :)


Thank you so much Adam!!Not an easy lesson btw…

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?


    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.


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


you wrote 5 year old boy.it is plural, isn’t it?

Theodor Adorno

    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.


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!


    I’ll see what I can do Saul :)


OMG!2 out of 10

Biplob Rangsa

    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.


    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.


      Thanks, Adam.

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


      It will be great! Thanks Adam!


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

Little bear

    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.


Cool! Thank you teacher.


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?


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.

Malinie V.A.

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.


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?


    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?


      Thank you Alex. It helps a lot. I understand now. I have been watching your videos for years. It’s always a pleasure. Have a nice day!


I got 8!!
My English is not good, but I really love your teaching and engVid lessons.


Hi Alex, I just wanted to thank you:)


Hi Adam, would you suggest a good grammar book?


Hi, teacher, a nice class, thanks so much! I appreciate your work.


Hi Adam!
I really like your lessons!
Thank you!


I’ve got 30. I have to review this lesson definitely.
