I wonder answering number 9.!! Is there any mistake?

Can

    Hi Can,

    No, the answer ‘knockout’ is correct. It’s a noun.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

Thank you. I made three mistakes. It’s great for me. But I can’t catch 6 item. Explaine please!!!

Алексей Окунев

    Hi Алексей Окунев

    When we say someone is a knockout, we say he/she is very good looking. It’s an adjective. So, the girl is so good looking that I want to date her.

    Does that help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      But in the description of this lesson you used the “knockout” as an adjective to change the word lesson. Which I understand as “super awesome lesson”.
      And I left the comment meaning that you are a knockout (super awesome) teacher.

Hello Adam,
thanks for the lesson, I really appreciated that.
But in the Quiz number 9 the answer knock out is correct but when it shows the correct answers it shows the wrong answer knockout .

shad

    Hi Shad,
    \
    This one was a bit tricky. Knockout is correct. Here we are asking about the situation (it), so are looking for a noun. IT is called A knockout.

    Does that help?

Adam, what does mean this sentence: ” Knocking off your hat or mooning the judges will not impress anybody.”?

Profile photo of adyce adyce

    Hi Adyce,

    That’s a pretty funny sentence. Not exactly sure what the writer meant, I’d need to have more context. But if I had to guess, I’d say it means clowning around won’t help you. knocking off your hat, might mean hitting it off your head. Mooning is slang for pulling down your pants and showing your bum. Sounds like it might be at some contest.

    Funny anyway. :)

Profile photo of anglina117 anglina117

    Hi Anglina,

    I have a Picasso painting in my house. I don’t have millions of dollars, so it must be a knockoff (fake). Some painter knocked off Picasso’s ideas and made paintings to sell cheap.

    Although, knock off can also mean finish, like I knocked off work early today.

    Does that help?

how many phrase verb, I should learn for understand the fist sentences in English.
There a mechanism for easily memorize ??
Thanks Adams is interesting you class

Mario

    I don’t learn them in the way you try. For example, I heard once an expression “spill the beans”, and I asked a native English speaker for explanation. He tried his best, but I couldn’t understand what that means. And then, suddenly I got it. How? I was watching a movie — there was a scene I understood well, and someone said the phrase. I knew exactly what he was talking about. I think there is no better way to learn stuff like this — you have to listen to native speakers and pay attention to what they do and how they act.

    Profile photo of morfik morfik

    Hi Mario,

    There are books dedicated to phrasal verbs and idioms that you can study, but I agree with Morfik– learn by seeing it used in context. When you watch a movie or read something with an expression you don’t know, write it down then try to guess it’s meaning in the context of the conversation. If you can’t guess it then, google it.

    good luck :)

Hello,

Thank you for the lesson and for quiz but it seems to me that I didnt get it very well. I made 2 mistakes. Could you, please explain why at the below question the correct form is Knock off? As you say in the video Knoff off = to steal or to knoff off the table. 7. Bill Gates may never be knocked ______ the list of the top ten richest people in the world.
• in
• over
• down
• off
Thank you again :)

Luiza

    I have the same question!! I don’t understand why know off is the answer… POlease Adam explain us!!

    Profile photo of caro caro

    Hi Luiza,

    If I knock the glass off the table, I basically remove it from the table, make it fall, right? If Bill gates gets knocked off the list, he is removed, he falls from the top ten to a lower number.

    Does that explain it?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      But, for the same reason, the answer “Knocked down” wouldn’t be correct? In your own words “If Bill Gates gets knocked down the list, he is removed, he falls from the top ten to a lower number.”

      Profile photo of Marcio07 Marcio07

Hi Mr.Adam,
This was a fantastic lesson and the way you explained, absolutely very nice.
Please arrange a lesson on “Elder vs Older” which is very confusing for me.
I shall be very thankful.
Thank You
best Regard,
Riaz Noor Afridi

Riaz Noor

    Hi Riaz,

    It might take some time to get that lesson up, but for now, remember that older can only be used as an adjective and a comparative (old + er). Elder can be used as a noun or an adjective. You should respect your elders (that is, people older than you). Elders here is a plural noun. to compare age, older is more common that elder.

    Does that help?

Hi teacher! I did not understand question nine of the quiz. It says: 9. When one boxer punches another and the second one falls down and can’t fight anymore, we call it a ________. According to the quiz, the right answer is “knockout” together, but in the video you said that “knock out” separate, means “put someone unconscious”. So i don’t get it.

I have some questions:

1. Do we use a preposition “to” when someone wants us to do something? For example:
“join us” — “join to us”
“give dad” — “give to dad”

2. Quantities + people. When we talk about people and we want to express how many entities there are, do we use “of”?

million people — million of people

3. How to pronounce following numbers:

1/3, 2/3, 3/5, etc.

4. How pronounce 0,764 and other similar numbers. Do we only use “point” after zero, or is there other way to say it?

5. When we are talking about time, what does exactly mean “by 10”?

Profile photo of morfik morfik

    Hi Morfik,

    1. Usually when we have both a direct and indirect object, we’ll need the to if it comes between them. (Give it to dad- it-direct ob., dad-ind. obj) However, if the order is reversed, then don’t need it. (Give dad the key vs. Give the key to dad)

    2. A million people (one million people). Millions of people. (don’t forget the s.)

    3. 1/3- one third, or a third,
    2/3- two thirds,
    3/5- three fifths (the ths is a bit hard to pronounce, but not as hard as 5/6 five sixths) ;)

    4. How pronounce 0,764 and other similar numbers. Do we only use “point” after zero, or is there other way to say it? Nope- zero point seven six four. It’s called a decimal but we always say point. 1.23- one point two three

    5. By means on or before. It might be a little confusing to compare by/until, but that might make a good lesson. Anyway, 10:10 is too late. Unless of course I completely misunderstood the question.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

Ana

could you plz, give a lesson about: money. what’s the meaning of, I owe you and you owe me?
what’s the real meaning of balance?

Ana

    Hi Ana,

    I will definitely try. For now:

    I owe you suggests that you did something for me or gave me something, and now I need to return the effort. You owe me is the same but in reverse.

    As for balance, you’ll need to give me a more specific situation. otherwise it just means equal.

    Hope that helps :)

It’s very useful to learn some use of phrasal verbs because it’s not that easy to get access to them. Thanks a lot!

hi teacher Adam..i want you to give me a lot of examples about every word..knock over and knock out.. and i want you to make a lesson about the verb when he followed by up..cause any verb had meaning but when it followed by up completely the meaning will be changed or increased..

example (wake)not like(wake up)not like(wake them up)..and get not like get up not like get them up..so i really want you to explain this point..thanks

Hi, Tanks for you’re lessons!!!
Today I were Tinking about why people sometimes say: I gonna….(read a book) and sometimes they say gotta? can u explein me that I have asked to my teacher, but she doesn’t did not how to explein me that….

Profile photo of gatito22 gatito22

    “Gonna” is short for “going to”, and “gotta” is short for “got to” — so “I gotta read a book” means “I have got to read a book”, or “I must read a book”. Hope that helps!

Hi Adam. The other day, I came across a knockout girl and I was eager to talk to her. Unfortunately, as soon as I started talking to her, I found myself on the ground knocked down by a kind of gorilla, her so-called boyfriend (she would be better off with me as a boyfriend). The monster was wearing knockoff Hugo Boss suit and Church shoes and a Rolex watch. I wanted to knock him out but, you see, I’m so tender that I didn’t. I had just enough time to tell him next time I would meet the girl I’d knock her up, I saw thousands of stars being knocked out I don’t know why. Life isn’t smart!!

Adam I have one doubt but not about this topic. what’s the difference between words AMONG and BETWEEN? thanks

Profile photo of fernando302 fernando302

    Hi Fernando. I guess the diference is: when you use between, it means that you are talking about two things/places/people. For example: I must to choose between these shirts (I must to choose one of these two shirts). Otherwise, when you use among, you’re talking about three or more things. For instance, “My socks were among hers”. I hope you get it.

Could you give me a short explanation why its so easy – to understand Adams’ lessons. And at other hand, i cant understand even 10% of what native english speakers talk about. I mean Discovery channel, news on TV, etc.
Are these lessons (hopefully not) are used to improve students, who are really good with english daily talking already? Thanks.

thanks a lot mu best teacher..But there is another meaning of “knock up” an example.. The players have a couple of minutes to knock up before the match start…. Is it mean to “warm up”?

Profile photo of samir yehia samir yehia

    I looked it up, and apparently you’re right — for sports played with racquets, like tennis, it means to hit the ball around for practice before a match. However, as someone who knows very little about sports, if I heard that I would assume the players had to very quickly get some people pregnant!

Hello,Adam! Thank you for your excellent lesson! But I do not understand one of my mistakes. It is a sentence 7 about Bill Gates. Why is “knock off” used there?
As I understand “knock off” means “steal”. So, how could Bill Gates steal the list of the top ten richest people in the world. I think he is not a thief.

Profile photo of Nikitosik97 Nikitosik97

    Also, before Adam defined it as to steal he said that, for instance, you can knock off something from the table. Типа, смахнул крошки со стола. You should listen very carefully to his explanations.

Hi Adam. Thanks for your efforts about teaching, first of all.
Can we say about question 7,
knock down means fall off table etc.
knock off means drop to the bottom of the list…
so knock down uses about physical, tangible and knock off intangible things

And you have said that
knockout means very very beautiful
but in Question 9, knockout have used for noun of knock out
Am I wrong
