        It was a great class on euphemisms Adam; as you noted in the video there are many. However, this is a good start.

        “We’re letting you go” is an euphemistic expression for “You’re fired”.

        See you soon.

Thank you for your interesting lecture as always. May I ask you a few questions?

1. Is “restroom” a soft expression for toilet, too?

2. Are the following expression also soft expressions for pregnant?

She’s expecting. She’s going to be a mother. She’s going to have a baby.

Thank you. I’d appreciate your feedback.

Profile photo of imatak imatak

    Hi Imatak,

    1. Is “restroom” a soft expression for toilet, too? Yes, it is. For some reason, people don’t like the word toilet :) (you can also say bathroom or powder room (for ladies))

    2. Are the following expression also soft expressions for pregnant?
    She’s expecting.–yes
    She’s going to be a mother, and She’s going to have a baby are just direct statements, not softened expressions.

    Hope this helps. :)

Dear Adam,

Your lessons are so great! It’s almost perfect![note:100% perfection is limited in the world:)]. I’m gonna to watch all of them one by one soon as I found they are amazing, extremely practical and useful.

I love your professional teaching style, practical context/contents/ topics, very clear explanation, simple lively examples (easy to understand), your unique presentation skill with a sense of humor sometimes, your kinda gentleman manner,and etc. (i’m sorry if you are offended but it’s just my personal feelings & impression).

I love this lesson “Be Polite” so much because I seldom can see or learn them in a specified topic from regular learning lessons. Besides, may I suggest some topics for your lessons in the future please? I would love to learn about interjections / words / phrases to express feelings & emotions. When I make comment on social media, sometimes i have some hesitation on using appropriate wordings to express exactly what i expected.

I deeply appreciate for your teaching. Thank you very much Adam! Have a lovely day ahead.

Cheers, Winsome

      Dear engVid Moderator,

      I have discovered engVid no long, but I’m very fond of Adam’s videos since then. I even love reading Adam’s replies to learners as some questions asked by others are also my questions or actually common questions of other learners :) It’s my first time to leave comments here so I don’t know much about its posting approval procedure and practice. I’m even not aware that an engVid Moderator is being here. I’m so glad to know that my comment is your favourite one (p.s. if i didnt misunderstand that you refer to my comment). I take it as a nice compliment:) Thanks so much Mr Moderator!

        Nice to meet you! All first-time commenters have to have their comments approved by hand, but after that your comments should show up automatically. There are really only a few comment rules:

        – no one-word comments
        – don’t be rude or ask us to do your homework for you
        – don’t post a lot of similar comments in a short period, they’ll get flagged as spam

        Enjoy exploring the lessons, and if you have any ideas or requests, just tell us in comments!

Euphemisms – different forms to express the same meaning. Could the sentence below be considered an euphemism? “Carla, have a bun in the oven, she was laid off, after being previously enjoyed by is boyfriend in the little boys room, during the party” (I’m playing with the expressions of course….)

Profile photo of Jorge Pedroso Jorge Pedroso


    Profile photo of majid3663 majid3663

    Of course ;)

    Be careful how far you take the game though Jorge ;)

    The only thing that doesn’t actually make sense is the laid off part. This happens from work, not from a relationship (break up).

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Hi Adam,
      This topic about euphemisms has nicely entertained me ☺
      It’s weird to realize there are some slight differences in the way we use words to refer to the same thing. For example, in Italian we usually find more ‘elegant’ to call bathroom ‘toilet’, with the original French pronunciation ☺ Sometimes it’s only about the sound of a word that seems better to listen.
      Do you think these euphemisms are understood by native speakers usually?
      I must admit I like the ‘powder room’ used for Ladies ☺
      If I were to ask you where the gentlemen’s room is, would you understand me? I don’t like ‘little boys’ room’, ha ha ha…
      Also, probably because distracted, I wronged toilet sometimes at the restaurant. My face got purple from shame when I realized to be a UFO in the wrong planet. Anyway, smiling always gives you enough courage to get to wash your hands before taking your leave of the wrong room

Interesting enough, in Italian we have an even more politically correct expression for ‘handicapped’, which is ‘diversely abled’.
One could apply the same construction for other attributes. For example, most women find Adam is ugly. Instead, I can say, ‘He is diversely handsome’

Profile photo of Antonella Antonella

    I’ll take that as a compliment ;)

and wash room in place of ladies room and second hand instead of previously enjoyed

Profile photo of burger burger

    Hi Jeetesh,

    To say he is no more might actually offend people. It is technically correct and people will understand it, but it is not ‘soft’ but rather direct.

    washroom, powder room, etc. all work for ladies room.

    secondhand is also correct, but again, if you are trying to sell something used, secondhand sounds a little cheaper than previously enjoyed.

Hello, Adam. I am Haridan from Thailand.
I would like to bother you about my worrying. Why can’t I listen English clearly ? Even if I can translate while I am reading the subtitle. But when I don’t read the subtitle I am confused and can’t understand what they are speaking. In one topic or lesson (if I read the subtitle) I know almost all of words, there are just 1 or 2 words that I don’t know.
This is my big problem when I talk with a native speaker or other.
How can I improve ? I have been trying to listen such as BBC radio, engvid lesson, Introvert by Jade ect. But my listening skill is still got good. Are there trick or technique for coping, Could you please please recommend for me ?

Profile photo of Haridan Haridan

      I’ve whatched… Very nice video.. Thank you for the recomendation.

      Profile photo of Danddan Danddan

    Hi Haridan! Excuse me, I just wanna say that daily practice is very important. There are softs(programs) in Internet, which are able to print subtitles on paper. So you can read them and understand clearly.(after that you can watch those movies)And you must know that radio language is different(and BBC(is British)).
    Good luck with your studying!

    Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

      Hey! Katrin777, could you tell me where I can find those programs on the Net?

      Profile photo of Lucivan Lucivan

        I don’t remember precisely, something like subtitle workshop or etc.

        Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

    Hi Haridan,

    As Katrin mentioned, it is a matter of daily practice and patience. You can try doing some dictation practice with programs that have transcripts so that you can check yourself. Ted.com is a great site for this, though it will be difficult at the beginning.Also Google: ESL listening practice. There are plenty of exercises to help you build these skills. Just remember that it takes time and a lot of effort.
    The main thing is don’t doubt yourself. Everybody struggles at some point in their learning.

    I hope this helps a little :)

Very interesting and usefeul lesson Adam!
I have a doubt. When we say “lay off” we want to mean that no jobs anymore in the company or lack of service in the enterprise. Therefore, the company has to lay off your employees. Am I correct about that?

Thanks in advance, teacher.

Take care!

Profile photo of Wellington Porto Brito Wellington Porto Brito

    Hi Wellington. Technically, when a company lays people off it is because it cannot afford to keep them or there isn’t enough work to do. In theory, someone who is laid off has the opportunity to return to the job if circumstances at the company change. Usually, however, once a person is laid off, he/she will look for another job. If a company needs employees again, it might call back the worker, but usually they just hire new ones.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Great! Now I understood the difference between “get fired” and “laid off”.

      Thank you very much.

Profile photo of tomek11 tomek11

    Hi Tomek,

    People are too easily offended and as soon as someone complains about something, others try to change it. I’m sure it will change again ;)

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      The word originated from disabled veterans in England during King Henry VII’s reign (15th-16th century). Unable to make a living for themselves after war, they were forced to take to the streets with their “cap in hand,” begging for coins. The present term used in India officially is ‘persons with disabilities’ which is a term adopted by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to which India is a party. In India the name ‘disabled’ or ‘challenged’ is also not acceptable to those people and they say (and I agree with them) they are not disabled or challenged but they are specially abled. So we have now started to use this term also.

Hello, Adam.
It is always a pleasure to watch your video classes. If it is possible, I would like you make a video talking about the difference between “respond”, “reply”, and “answer”. I guess that as a verb, “respond” is used in a context related to the reaction of a system under a physical stimulus. “Reply” sounds more natural in writing, i.e., someone wrote you and you write him/her back. On the other hand, the verb “Answer” sounds more natural in speaking, as an example, someone asks you something and you answer them back. It is correct?
Take care,

Profile photo of cesarmnfis cesarmnfis

    Hi Cesar,

    Mostly, you’re right. Though answer can also be a noun (math questions usually have one correct answer). Reply can be both written and spoken. It is a little more formal than answer. Respond can be thought of as react (to a letter, an action, a stimulus, etc.)

    I’ll see what I can do in terms of a video though.

I want to ask you for help!
I’m taking a Test Called MET(Michigan English Test)
I don’t know if you’ve heard about it, I need help mostly in Grammar, because sometimes it appears some expressions I don’t know in the grammar section, and I really want to improve it!
Recommendations for the Test?

Thank you very much!

    Hi Luiso,

    I’ve helped people with MELAB, but not MET. I looked it up, and it seems they test common grammar structures. Get a good SAT book and study the structures they test there. I think it would be very similar.

    Let me know if that helps.

Is it true about Niharika or just an coincidence? :-(

Thanks! The funniest part was ‘previously enjoyed’. :-) I have pretty vivid imagination to finish lesson under my chair. )

“Her shame have got her passed away in ladies’ room because she could not pretend she as never previously enjoyed but merely full-figured girl actually having bun in her oven..”
Sad story but it sounds a bit better indeed with euphemisms. =)

    I actually didn’t write Niharika in the original quiz. I think it was edited. (I actually don’t know who Niharika is).

Tnx for this video.

Adam, could you please make a video about the difference between REMAIN and LEFT.

Profile photo of lenny001 lenny001

    Hi Lenny,

    That’s a bit too focused for a video.

    Essentially, these words can be used as synonyms and are mostly interchangeable. Remain has the idea of a continuation, while left has the idea of the portion that wasn’t used.

    Also left is more casual than remain.

    After my friends left the bar, I was the only left to pick up the bill. (the only one remaining to pick up the bill– this sounds a little too formal)

    Left can also be used like an adjective (How much time do we have left? How much time do we have remaining?)

    Not sure id this helps. I’ll see if I can do a video with some other confusing pairs.

Thanks, Adam.
I would like to ask a question.
I know the phrasal verb ‘save up’ money.
But can I say ‘save up’ water?

Profile photo of Sophie Sophie

    Get one more question, sorry.
    A lava plateau is a flat, wide surface that is formed when lava comes out of the ground and spreads out very quickly.
    Why is ‘of’ used behind ‘come out’? I don’t understand this sentence structure.
    Hope you can help me. :) Thanks.

    Profile photo of Sophie Sophie

    Hi Sophie,

    Save up means to accumulate– save to a certain level, or a certain amount for a purpose. I am saving up money for my vacation next year.

    second question–we can say come out from the ground, but generally we use of rather than from. Think of it as a phrasal verb (come out of room so we can talk; come out of car and put your hands up; etc.)

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Thanks so much!
      But can I say save up water? or just save water?

      Profile photo of Sophie Sophie

        Save up for a particular purpose (save up water in case there is a drought). Other wise save water is ok (we should save water so as not to waste it)

what is the difference between stuff and fill ?

Profile photo of ryanzbinden ryanzbinden

    Hi Ryan,

    Stuff means fill aggressively, to full or overfull. Fill means put in nice and even until full enough. You can also fill in the blanks, but not stuff them.

    For example: you don’t usually fill a turkey with stuffing- you stuff it until it can’t hold any more.

    Does this help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Yes, it does. Thanks a lot.

Hi again my dear teacher I hope you’re doing fine.
I have a big doubt I can’t find the real meaning or context there is among these expressions: tomorrow I will have been gone, i have gone , tomorrow I will have been merried for 20 years and etc, that is to say, I would like to know what they refer to when you speak , what tense in the time? thank you very much , I would like you to explain in a video.
Best wishes!

    Hi The Best,

    I think you’re referring to the future perfect, which is not common in many languages. I will make a video about it. ;)

Hi Adam. I have a question,if you please help me. I watched video about using WILL and BE GOING TO(after watching the first video I understood something, but after next videos I became more confused than I was at beginning) In previous lesson I asked you to help me with answers on the text @ Mary and Philip Swan are talking to a travel agent about future holidays………..@ I became confused with 8 answer. Please explain me why answer IS GOING TO. Thank you Adam. And maybe you will recommend me lesson about that.

    No, you needn’t, they are happy to have children on board! Your son (8) _____________ play water games, take part in toy boat races and beach parties.

    is going to — because all these activities have already been planned, so it is a definite future plan. She is not thinking of these things as she speaks.

    Does this make sense?

Adam,one more question:
1.Is this the bus to New York?(I saw it in net)
2.Is this bus to New York?(I always thought that after THIS,THAT we needn’t use article).

And the second question:
Why didn’t you like it?(is it OK?)(I’m asking somebody @for what reason he didn’t like it@.

Thank you Adam.

Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

    Hi Katrin,

    Is this the bus to New York?– this is the correct one. The person is asking about (pointing to) a specific bus, so it needs a definite article.
    Is this bus going to New York?– this is ok now.

    Why didn’t you like it?– this is correct

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      I think,I see the difference now. IS THIS(in the first sentence means NOT THIS BUS but IS IT the bus to…) Thank you.

Hi Adam !
You are a really good teacher:) I really like the way you explain things
I had a doubt
Since my mother tongue is Spanishwe obviously have a different way of using that (we use it almost in everything )
Is there any rule /trick to know when should we put that?
For example I think he is a nice guy
You wouldn’t put I think THAT …..
Would you?

Profile photo of C.p01 C.p01

    Hi C,

    Generally, if there is already a subject (meaning ‘that’ is not the subject) and removing the ‘that’ does not interfere with the understanding of the sentence, then you can take it out. That being said, there are occasions when you can’t remove it. I’ll see about making a video about this.

    I think he is a nice guy.– I also wouldn’t put it in this example. But in certain contexts, I would.

    Hope this helps a little.

Hi Adam,

your lectures are of great help always.

I framed a sentence using one of the expression, just wanted to know if its structurally and gramatically correct.

Being a FULL FIGURED,its sometimes embarrassing on occasions where you find ladies dressed in sexy attire.

Thanks Adam. It is a very interesting lesson. I think English speaking people go too far with the euphemisms, and they give that habit to the whole world ! In France, your damn politically correct is just a continual headache ! I just love “letting himself go”. Why, it is even worse than “fat” ! It suggest it is the fault of the man if he is fat. He didn’t exercise, he drank too much beer, he ate too much junk food, he wasn’t active enough… But it is possible to be fat because of an illness, for instance.
