Thanks for video and I am interested .I have recognized my doubtful points and I got this lesson.
I will greatly admire if you would teach a lesson about how to use “may”,”might”,”will” and “would” in sentences and their differences.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

7/10…not bad. Thank you, Adam, for your clear explanation.

Tuesday, September 18th 2018

2/10 very bad

Tuesday, September 18th 2018

    Keep trying Edwin. It’s all about the practice ;)

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

Sorry Mr. Adam! I got 6/10. I’ve concerned with Th pronunciation (ð). Sometime I heard the voice of (d).I know this is out of our lessons but could you explain me please. Thank you sir!

Tuesday, September 18th 2018

    6 isn’t bad Vongvilya ;)

    It’s a little hard to explain pronunciation with only typed words. Essentially, the ‘th’ sound pressed air between the teeth and tongue whereas the ‘d’ sound is a pop sound.

    Not sure if this helps. I’ll try to make a video about this.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

50/100))) While you were teaching me I was playing FreeCell… sorry

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

I got 7/10 as well. It was little confusing. I didn’t understand the real destination of “underneath”))

Tuesday, September 18th 2018

    Hi Mir,

    Generally, if something is touching the top of it, then it underneath that something. Does this help?

    Hi love don’t worry

    Saturday, December 1st 2018

Thanks

Wednesday, September 19th 2018

I didn’t watch the video first

Wednesday, September 19th 2018

I am so sorry I have started my quiz before completed the lesson. I have got 3/ 10 !!. For me, the most common is the under and below only. Sure I will listen to it, again and again, to reach them all understand.

Wednesday, September 19th 2018

Hi Adam. I was always taught that we use UNDER when one thing is exactly under another, and we use below when one thing is below a level of another thing. So when things are exactly vertically one over another we use OVER and UNDER and when things are on different levels but not exatly vertically we say ABOVE and BELOW. So it is completely different from what you said. ???

Wednesday, September 19th 2018

    To be honest, Jarek, most people will understand your intention based on the context. If they are not sure, they will ask for clarification. That said, there are technical definitions as well. Over is most commonly used to include movement, and below is most commonly used to include level.

    Was there a specific example that was new to you in this lesson?

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

70/10. Thank you!

Wednesday, September 19th 2018

Thank you Adam! These words are sometimes very confusing to use…

Wednesday, September 19th 2018

    You’re not alone John. It’s just a matter of experiencing these words as often as possible. you will see that context plays an important part.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

Thank you so much.

Wednesday, September 19th 2018

Thank you Adam! In my mind, I had a lot of questions to use these words. Now everything is okay. I understood how I can use it. But of course I need to make more practice.

Thursday, September 20th 2018

    Keep working at it Aysedemirel :)

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

Friday, September 21st 2018

    Try it again, Panjshir. It’s all about the practice ;)

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

Thank you very much, it helped me a lot….!!!

Saturday, September 22nd 2018

Mr. Adam can you help me with fifth question? I don’t get it.Can I use below?

Monday, September 24th 2018

    Hi Raging Beast,

    Technically, yes, you can, but the implication will be different. If you dropped it there on purpose (with intention) then it would be below. If it is accidental, then underneath. This is because the idea of something on top covering it and making it difficult to reach would use under.

    Does his help?

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

This topics aren’t very easy to learn because they are very similar each other and they create confussion among them, but we have studied them a little more than before and then we know how to use them better. Thanks teacher Adam, it has been a very interesting lesson as always.

Monday, September 24th 2018

    Sorry, “These topics…”

    Monday, September 24th 2018

    You’re right, Angardiobel. These words can be confusing, but in most cases the listener will understand you even if you use a slightly different word. Just make sure the general idea is clear and practice until these become easier.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

oh thanks 7/10
i think its enough to start

Tuesday, September 25th 2018
