Mr. Adam. Watched your prensation on compound subject earlier. So is the following sentence correct?
What colours and shape are in the flag of USA?

Denise101

    Hi Denise,

    In this case, both descriptors (colour and shape) refer to one item (flag). So, What colour and shape is the flag? The flag is rectangular and blue, white, and red.

    Does this help?

    Adam

In regard to question # 8,I would think that even with someone who do not get an indirect message, our tone of voice might help to soften a direct one.

ana18680

    Good point, Ana.

    But, in some cases, if they’re not getting the indirect message, they’re probably not listening very carefully, so tone might not be noticed either.

    Pay attention to the listener’s reaction and adjust your message.

или я усложняю?

Please explain. Which way is correct, better or more often used in regular conversations.
1. He is twice her age. = she is half his age.
2. She is twice as young (as he is)
3. She is twice younger than him
Thank you.

    Hi EddD,

    I work more, he pays less.
    I work twice more, he pays half as much.
    I work twice as much (as before), he pays half as much as the others.

    Please explain. Which way is correct, better or more often used in regular conversations.
    1. He is twice her age. = She is half his age.– both commonly used. Who do you want to focus on more, him r her?
    2. She is twice as young (as he is)– use half his age
    3. She is twice younger than him– use half his age

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

when to omit relative pronouns? can “But” be used as a relative pronoun? Please reply Sir

Danish1525

    Hi Danish,

    This is not a simple answer to post here. Essentially, you are referring to reduced clauses. I’ve made a few lessons on clauses, so you can do a search for these here. Look especially at participles.

    Also, but is not a relative clause. It is a conjunction, but it can be used as a adverb for transitions.

    Hope this helps.

    Adam

Thank you, sir!

Thanks Adam

Some people do not understand indirect messages. In these cases, should you be direct? – you might hurt their feelings, by being direct, and they might be thick, so i would deliver the negative message in a subtle way such as giving them an excuse or telling them a white lie

mark444

    Hi Mark,

    You should always pay attention to the person you are talking to and try to understand how they might react. Some people will appreciate a direct message, while others may be offended. There is no right way that applies to all people.

    If they are thick, it might not matter what you say and how… they won’t get it.

    Adam

Thanks Adam

ZeinaK

Hello Adam, first of all, I love all you do for us who are trying to learn a foreign language, I’m from Argentina and I really enjoy your videos, this is my first time commenting a video here, sorry in advance for my grammar.
I think it’s a bit confusing when you use the sentence “I’m not sure that’s interiley accurate” like it’s a polite way to answer and later you tell it’s not a polite way to say ” I’m not satisfied with”
Thanks for all the hard work you all do and keep it up

bame1001

    I talk about the use of “I’m not” in both sentences but considered in different ways.. I hope I’m clear enough
