Hi dear teacher, I have a suggestion, please put a number or date for each of your lessons. It’s better and easier for us when we talk about them . For example I can say: Adam’s lesson 6 is about…., his lesson 68 is ….. Talking about your lessons with numbers ( or dates )of them is so better. It’s the second time that I talk about this suggestion on this web site. The best

Thursday, February 27th 2020

    Hi Soei,

    Good idea. I’ll pass this suggestion on to the administrator.

    Wednesday, April 8th 2020

It was very helpful I realize that I need to work on identifying nouns and verbs. thanks.

Thursday, February 27th 2020

Some words in english have in portuguese her respective meaning then it’s easy to know which class of word she belongs, and they have exactly the same meaning. Some words have many others meanings.
It’s interesting how much is important to know the grammar rules like adverb ” already” and adjective ” ready” to understand better. How much knowing the grammar classification of word help to understand.
One more useful lesson Sir. Thank you.

Thursday, February 27th 2020

Thank you Adam for this difficult and daunting lesson.

Friday, February 28th 2020

Hi teacher, thank you. I’ve understood your lesson. You always speak in a clear way. Bye

Friday, February 28th 2020

Hi, Adam. How’s it going? Can you just explain why in question number 8 that “much” present in the sentence isn’t working as an adverb? And btw, thanks for the lesson.

Friday, February 28th 2020

    Hi Celioos,

    It is describing time (a noun), while too describes the adjective much.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, April 8th 2020

Hi Adam. Great lesson. What part of speech is ‘much’ in the 8th question?

Sunday, March 1st 2020

    Hi Dionisis (nice nickname :))

    Much is an adjective describing the noun time, while too is an adverb quantifying much.

    Hope this helps.

    Wednesday, April 8th 2020

      Thank you very much for your answer and your compliment. It helps. Actually, Dionysos is my real name. It’s a Greek name. Some trivia from wikipedia: ‘Dionysus or Dionysos[a] is the god of the grape-harvest, winemaking and wine, of fertility, ritual madness, religious ecstasy, festivity and theatre in ancient Greek religion and myth’.

      Tuesday, June 9th 2020

Hey Adam. I did not understand in fourth question why “not” is adverb?

Sunday, March 1st 2020

    Hi DinDim,

    Not modifies an adjective (not hungry, not sick, etc.) Adverbs modify adjectives or verbs.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, April 8th 2020

Hi Adam ,I can remember those types of adverb and ajectives.I Just do not know how to use it to describe a subject or a object .and i do not know how to organize them in a correct space.It really makes me very confused.Because our CHINESE is so different with ENGLISH ,In CHINESE we put the adverb in front of the subject and adverb and ajectives.

Monday, March 2nd 2020

    Hi Vincent,

    Chinese grammar arrangements are very different. The key is not to approach English through the view of another language.

    Adverbs are always placed close to the words they modify. It really has nothing to so with subject or object since you can use an adverb to modify an adjective or a verb. An adjective can be used with a noun subject or object, but it can also be used with other parts of the sentence. The key is to know which word is modifying which other word.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, April 8th 2020

Hello I want to take this special opportunity to thank you
Your the special man. I have a question?

Monday, March 2nd 2020

    Hi Silas,

    Thank you. What is your question?

    Wednesday, April 8th 2020

Hello Adam,
How are you getting on?
I have a one question to you.
How about this: “I’m thinking?” Is it correct?
It’s stative verb but I’ve seen it many times.

I look forward to your reply.
All the best

Monday, March 2nd 2020

    Hi Marcin,

    Think is a special verb. It can be an action verb (actually calculating something in your mind) or a stative verb (have an opinion):

    I’m thinking about getting a new car– considering it in my mind in terms of cost, insurance, safety, etc.

    I think cars are bad for the environment– opinion.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, April 8th 2020

      Yes, it did. Many thanks Adam.
      Stay healthy.
      Talk soon. ;)

THANKS PROFESSOR

Monday, May 18th 2020

There are two similar adjectives: accountable and responsible (for). There is a slight difference in meaning, but I have heard people say ‘responsible’ where I would rather expect ‘accountable’. How much of an error is it, if at all? Can one say ‘he should be held accountable for that’ or ‘be held responsible’ – interchangeably?

Monday, June 8th 2020

Hi Mrs. Adam my vocabulary very poor. what kind of advice have to me

Saturday, June 20th 2020

Hi Adam. This lesson is very help full, but I would like you give us a whole sentence of new vocabulary then circle adverbs that we have been learning about different types of verbs: such as active/passive, transitive/intransitive, state, linking/copula, modal, and auxiliary. I have a little confuse.
Thanks so much . You’re awesome a professor.
