Until now, all is clear.
I dare say: so far so good!
Thanks for your tips, Adam.

sir graduating is continuous work. so how can i use by with it?
as in 4th mcq.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    You can use ‘by’ in relation to two things: I will graduate(1) by the time my sister starts school (2).
    Also, graduating is a one time event (when you have completed all course requirements). Until then you are studying.

    Is this what you had in mind?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Hi Adam,
That’s a great lesson! Thanks a lot.
I did the text, and I was able to score 90% of it. I believe if I watch the video again, I will get the last part.
However, I need a bit of explanation on the ‘ by time + an adjective clause.
Thanks again!

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi Abduldala,

    By the time–which time? by the time (that) you read this…

    In other words, the adjective clause identifies the specific time something will happen.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      Very good lesson videos, a great help to learn English,

      Monday, February 27th 2017

      thank for your lesson

      Monday, March 20th 2017

Thanks very much for this useful lesson, i got 8/10.
In the question 6, the answer “no sooner then” is suitable, but i still see that “no later than” is also can be as answer.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    I want to thank you for what you give us to help to write better in the web WRITETOTOP, i am a member in it
    By the way that you have allowed for asking :P
    i wonder whether there is a possibility in WRITETOTOP, to get a feedback on essay or not ?

    Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi Struggle,

    The person is telling him that even though he is in a hurry, nothing can be done to speed things up because the shipment will not arrive before noon tomorrow. the client doesn’t care how late it will come but how soon it will come.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      Wednesday, January 11th 2017

        I agree with you, people here just want to learn English have fun and , sometimes, are curious to know people from foreign countries.
        that’s it.

          reemabousaid dear, although I couldn’t read kotoz comment but please don’t ever take such comments serious. Different people have different point of views, we should just ignore the one we don’t like, If you can’t shut others mouth you can atleast close your own ears and eyes. I hope you understand. Don’t ever get upset and be happy

          Thursday, January 19th 2017

          kotoz behavior is really absurd towards the engVid management,he should behave himself and should know that this site is solely to provide a great opportunity to people all around the world to improve their English, and there for we all should thankful to them for their efforts and appreciate them.All students at this forum are all like siblings and the teacher is like our spiritual father, we all should respect each other specially our teacher and engvid management.I personally on behalf of all students on this forum make an apology on kotoz reckless behavior towards the management.Thanks.No such comments can make you people small uoy are all the great specially our Great teacher Adam.

          Thursday, January 19th 2017

          Tuesday, January 24th 2017

          Kotoz, please focus on the English and let all else slide. Adding to this conversation doesn’t help anyone. I’m sure no-one is trying to offend you. I haven’t seen your original comment so can’t say anything other than let’s all move on.

          Wednesday, January 25th 2017

          Ty mr Adam 4 ur kind words but the moderator has been deleting my comments and he leaves the others 2ward me he makes me anxious and he drives me 2 angry and i have told him delete the cat pic but he hasn’t done

          Saturday, January 28th 2017

          Hi ADAM. i’ve just joined your English class and my first English lesson test result is 4/10. I think it’s not good. So, What i need to do now? Repeat the lesson or jump to the next stage? Thank you.
          By the way, is there any mistake my above written sentenses or it’s perfect? :))) I would be very happy knowing my mistakes.Thank you again.

          Wednesday, February 1st 2017

          Hi. Everything is ok by you .

          Friday, January 13th 2017

    Hi Reema,

    It’s important to look at the whole context. The person is telling him that even though he is in a hurry, nothing can be done to speed things up because the shipment will not arrive before noon tomorrow (i.e., after noon). The client doesn’t care how late it will come but how soon it will come.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

easy peasy lemon squeezy)

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    yes indeedy ;)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Again a great lesson, Adam

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Great lesson Adan! I missed the number 6 exercise because I didn’t know the meaning of the word “hurry” in the context. I realize that to use prepositions correctly it is necessary to keep in mind the grammar rules and make a logical effort in each sentence. Thank you!

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Absolutely, Daniel. Context is always important to be aware of.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Hi,
Why don’t you use until in the last question?
Thank you in advance!

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi Sigoda,

    The action is leave (a one-time, quick action), whereas we use until with continuing actions.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Will have had….Please share few more examples

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Examples of what, Ashutosh? Future perfect?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

100 % . You are a great teacher !

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

I got 6 out of 10. :(
Can you explain no.6 again? Thank you.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi TzuYing,

    It’s important to look at the whole context. The person is telling him that even though he is in a hurry, nothing can be done to speed things up because the shipment will not arrive before noon tomorrow (i.e., after noon). The client doesn’t care how late it will come but how soon it will come.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      Thank you Adam. It is clear now! :)

      Wednesday, January 25th 2017

I got 7/10…. I must work yet ! Thanks for this lesson.

    Hi Doc
    what’s up in Italy?
    are you from the north or from the south?

    Tuesday, January 10th 2017

      Hi, I’m from the north of Italy very close to France…!
      Bye

      Tuesday, January 10th 2017

      Lemarvillois,You’re right,you are really interested in knowing people from all around the word!does it have an special reason? You asked me a question about my country too. I wanted to say I answered to your question in the last training video. You can see you answer there.

      Wednesday, January 11th 2017

        hi , I’m glad to write to you again
        I want to know people from every where ,there ‘s no special reason. I ‘m interested to know others countries and cultures. The internet is a wonderful place for that .Last time , I made a very big mistake and I’m sorry about that, I’m sure now you’re from Iran (not Irak, with a K in France)
        let’s leave messages sometimes to each other it would be nice!

        Wednesday, January 11th 2017

    Almost Lucas. Change the so to such ;)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      Thank you Adam!

      Thursday, January 26th 2017

Hello Adam, I’m searching for a lesson about how to use words (by or using) in examples like:
‘I repaired the server [by/using] restart application.’ of ‘I wake up by drink (means with help of) a cup of coffee’ I don’t know what part of grammar relates to this problem and do not know how to search it. Could you help me to find something about it?

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi Seingen,

    You probably need to look at the preposition ‘by’ as used to discuss how something is done.
    By + -ing (gerund)
    I improve my English by practicing every day (how improve? by practicing)

    Hope this helps.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Great lesson Adam!!!Perfect to make this difficult topic clear.
Thanks ;)

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

“To take advantage of this incredible offer, please drop by the car dealership _____ noon on Sunday. Don’t miss the deadline!”
The answer is “no later than”, I answered “until” instead. I would like to know why I can’t use “until” in this case. :) Thanks from now.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi Maria,

    Firstly there is a deadline (noon), and drop by is a quick finite action, not a continuous one (you can only drop by once).

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      Yes, it does help! Thank you very much Adam :).

      Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Great lesson Andam. This was my first quiz and i got 7/10

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Well done Rafa ;)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Adam , you’re almost the best teacher on Engvid.
you would be the best if you would work more than 3 hours a day :)

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

The topic seems to be clear and discussed a lot, but I have found more details here than in Emma’s lesson. Good tips are to think about verbs and the perfect tenses. Unfortunately, I got 8/10.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

could you please make a lesson about past perfecet

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi Schneider,

    Type past perfect in the search box above and you will see a few videos about this.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Hello Adam! It’s a very good lesson, as always. Thank you.
I think we need a lesson about future perfect. Sometimes I have a trouble with it.
But today when I was reading I faced with a strange phrase I guess. It said “There ain’t no reason to do this”. That seemed very strange for me because from EngVid I know that double negative is bad, but it exists as I see. Of course sometimes the “ain’t” drives me mad.
Can you help me to figure it out?

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi Alexander,

    I’ll get on the future perfect for sure.

    As for the ‘ain’t’ it’s slang, mostly in the US. If you watch Hollywood movies, you’ll hear it. Just let it go ;)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Thanks very much for this great lesson

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Great lesson! No more confusion from now on:)
Thanks Adam.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

20 :( the worst score ever. Don’t get it.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Try again, Siguros :)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

08/10 Thanks Adam for the unique Lesson.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

GREAT LESSON, CONGRATULATIONS.
MAY I USE “ABOUT” INSTEAD OF “BY”.
EX: I’LL BE THERE ABOUT 7.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi NJDS,

    You can say I’ll be there at about 7. About means approximately, not a time reference.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Hi Adam.
Thank you for your teaching.
In Persian, my native language, when something is 100% certain for future and it will happen for sure undoubtedly, you can even use past tense!. for example, if I’m being expected at a party and I’m on way and my friends call me and ask me where I am. I can reply: I arrived there; instead of “I’ll arrive there”.

I was wondering if there is a same concept in English?

by the way, it’s interesting when you think about it. if something WILL happen, it’s like something happened in the past.
I suppose this exists in Arabic language as well. maybe Arabic speakers here would approve.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hello compatriot, I’m so glad you are here. I have a question, where you took your picture? Is it Phin in Kashan??? I’m just curious, that’s why I asked

    Wednesday, January 11th 2017

      Hello there.
      you’re right. It’s Fin Garden in Kashan City.

      Wednesday, January 11th 2017

        Oh my God. That was Fun not Phin!!!! 😶

        Wednesday, January 11th 2017

          Oh my God. That was Fin not Phin!!!😶

          Wednesday, January 11th 2017

          Yes. The spelling doesn’t matter, its beauty does.

          Wednesday, January 11th 2017

        Hello Mr. Kashi. Are you sure that using past instead of future is grammatically correct in our language ? I think it is used in speaking only for emphasize on a thing we are sure about doing it. Best regards

        Wednesday, January 11th 2017

          Hi there. I think you approved my meaning; “to emphasize on a thing we are sure about doing it”.
          and that’s exactly my point is it exits in English or even other languages as well?
          Good Luck.

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          It rarely happens in movies ! When some one for example asks ” What happened to them ?” And the other one replies ” Imagine them dead ! Or they were killed ” . But really they are still alive ! I think it also happens in natural situation and we cannot say we use it or we will use it in future . It ,in fact depends on the mood of speaker ! However It’s my personal idea .

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          I’m not sure about the answer . To know if there is in other languages or not I should study more .

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          to for for !

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          to emphasize not for .

          Thursday, January 12th 2017

          nice

          Friday, January 13th 2017

    Hi HR.

    I’m afraid we don’t have this concept. Past is always a completed action.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Hi Adam,thanks for these useful lessons.I have learned many grammer topic and so on. However, I want to say that ı have some trouble with reductions. Such as reduction of Adjective clauses and adverb clauses. For example: John is the only person to understand me. where did “to” come from? Could you help me to understand this? Thanks in Advance!

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Hi Tom,

    This isn’t a reduction actually.

    You can say John is the only person who understands me, or the original with to. The to verb here is used as a complement to complete the meaning of person. The complement allows you to avoid a tense verb (understands) and make it a general observation.

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

7/10 thanks adam

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

thanks.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Ty
BTW ur lessons mr Adam is the hardest lessons at all

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

It’s hard for me to understand this well. Anyway, thanks for teaching Engvid. I’ll review and try to understand.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    according that you are native speaker in fact it’s easy to understand aallmaras.

    Thursday, January 12th 2017

I still confuse :'( Doesn’t matter. I’ll watch it again.
Thank you, Adam.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

    Me to, I’ve got 5/10. I’ll try tomorrow again.

    Saturday, January 14th 2017

I reckon the cultures vary about this lesson anyone go along with me on that???????

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

08/10,Thanks for this useful lesson, Mr Adam. I will review it.

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

Question

Is it Okay to say “I’ll finish washing dishes in 5 minutes”?

or “I’ll have finished washing dishes in 5 minutes”?

Thank you for the lesson

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

    Hi Learning,

    Depends on the context:
    I’ll finish washing the dishes in 5 minutes- from now
    I’ll have finished washing the dishes in 5 minutes. – means something else is going. The show is starting in f minutes, you’ll be late. Don’t worry, i’ll have finished…

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Hello Adam, it was so useful, as usual. Thank you a lot

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

Thanks for the tips

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

10/10 this time.

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

    yes you should review lessons to succeed

    Wednesday, January 11th 2017

thank you so much Adam for your lessons..could you please do a video about adverb clause as soon as possible me and my friends are waiting for it ..pleaaase

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

    It’s coming Samira ;)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Thank nice lesson

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

Thank you Adam.it’s not easy for me.

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

    Hi Pavanut,

    It will get easier ;)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

I Got 9/10 :)

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

Thank you Mr Adam. There are many things that we should khow about English !

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

Well, in the 6th question I have had a doubt about the time when the shipment would have to depart because I thought that it was at the pier by then, so I used “until”, but the question is focused on the time that the shipment will arrive tomorrow because it wasn’t there at that moment, so you used “no sooner than”, in fact, it is a question focused on the future. Besides in the 10th question, I have another doubt with the answer because this question uses an imperative like “have”, and its answer isn’t a precise time using “by the time” or “around the moment the speaker is in his office”, and I thought the answer would have more precision at the moment the speaker wanted the project. Anyway, I will have to review again the lesson and get more feedback. Thanks a lot, teacher Adam, a very good explanation.

Wednesday, January 11th 2017

WOW, Nice lesson really
Thank you Adam

Thursday, January 12th 2017

Hi dear,

Many thanks for your great job. You always lighten things we cannot notice.
I would like to watch lessons about ‘ prescriptive grammar’.

have a nice day Adam.

Thursday, January 12th 2017

Hi Adam
Mr Adam I should metion that your lessons are very entertaining and well-organized. Learning grammar with your lessons is very enjoyable. I have a favor. Can you explain how can I use this words correctly ? Rather , either , neither , I would be grateful if you explained it as well as I expected. Thank you in advance.

Thursday, January 12th 2017

    I’ll see what I can do Jaloliddin ;)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

This lesson is the Easies one of ur lessons Mr Adam

Thursday, January 12th 2017

    lol. Above you mention it’s the hardest Kotoz.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

why that idiot supervisor hide my remarks?

Thursday, January 12th 2017

    No need to use names here.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Thanks, Adam.
But I have a question and hope you can help.
‘grow crops on a field’ or ‘grow crops in a field’;
‘plant crops on a field’ or ‘plant crops in a field’
Which of them are correct?
If I change field to farmland, is there any difference of preposition?

Thursday, January 12th 2017

    Sorry, get one more questions.
    ‘Now Scotland is implementing a similar program as this idea is has diffusing around the world.’
    is ‘is has’ a grammar mistake? Why?
    Thanks in advance. :)

    Thursday, January 19th 2017

      Hi Sophie,

      in a field (a contained area, and in the earth). On farmland (vague reference, not limited).

      is has is a mistake. Only one helping verb needed. The editor missed it. ;)

      Wednesday, January 25th 2017

That was very easy for me. thank you Adan

Thursday, January 12th 2017

Thank you my dear

Friday, January 13th 2017

It’s was very confusing for me. Do you have any other axamples to practice with?. Thank you!

Friday, January 13th 2017

    Hi Cart,

    I recommend a good grammar book. It will have plenty of exercises.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Interesting and useful. As usual, however. Thank you.

Friday, January 13th 2017

Hi there Teacher Adam. Thank you so much for this lesson. I’ve learned a lot. Hope you can make a lesson about the difference between setback and obstacle. Thank you!

Friday, January 13th 2017

    Hi Lou,

    A setback has stopped your progress and taken you backward. An obstacle is in front of you and needs to be overcome.

    Hope this helps.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Sir, this statement is correct or not if not then what is the correct statement “Work hard until you dont have to introduce yourself”

Saturday, January 14th 2017

    Hi Apaashish.

    It is correct ;)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

I m unfortunate this time ,cannot watch the video today just tomorrow.Nevertheless, is it inappropriate, dear Adamto ask you agrammatical question and be directly answered.
A sentence that need to be corrected,any sentence of mine.because i either dont know how to adress you properly,or dont get answeredor loose sight of my questions and have no clues where they areIt would matter that I get answered,It matters to me,I think english since haing turned 15,faults in it i dont bear

      Sunday, January 15th 2017

    By all means, Delphoi, ask me your question.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Sorry “Catcher in the Rye”.

Saturday, January 14th 2017

    “Catcher” really helped me to improve my North American accent.

    Saturday, January 14th 2017

      Hi Katrin,

      Try 1984 (with North American accent)

      Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Great teacher great lesson.I got 8/10.Thanks teacher

Tuesday, January 17th 2017

Hi Adam
literally speaking,finding where we should use these two words are quite confusing.I got 7/10.
I think native speakers use these two words interchangeably and it is understood by most people.

Tuesday, January 17th 2017

    For the most part, you’re probably right, Haman. But that doesn’t mean it’s correct ;)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      U are definetely right Adam,But this lesson is still point of confusion to me and maybe other students.

      Thursday, January 26th 2017

great lesson. and many thanks but unfortunately i got 6/10.

Wednesday, January 18th 2017

my score is 1 / 10. Absolutly terrible.

Wednesday, January 18th 2017

Wednesday, January 18th 2017

thank you Sir.

Thursday, January 19th 2017

prepositions are so difficult to me :(

Thursday, January 19th 2017

Hi,
Sir…
I like your videos so much.

Friday, January 20th 2017

Sir,
Please approve my new registration, because I have lots of English questions to ask for you…

Friday, January 20th 2017

    Done! Welcome to engVid!

    Saturday, January 21st 2017

    Welcome Ayush :)

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

“I’ll be done by 7” same as “I’ll be done before 7”?
by = before?

Sunday, January 22nd 2017

    Hi Man,

    by suggests a limit. Before can be anytime before. IN this case, though, they will essentially deliver the same message.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

I got confused by the last example. I won’t be there by/until noon. Can we used the other preposition sir adam/? Just like AT? I won’t be there at noon.
BY; it means you won’t bee there by noon? but rather after the noon?
then UNTIL, it means you won’t be there right after the noon and you must leave at your post? please do help me to clarify that things. thank you sir Adam.

Sunday, January 22nd 2017

    Hi fmj86,

    I won’t be there by noon means I’ll be there later than noon.

    I won’t be there until noon, means I’ll be there at noon or later.

    I won’t be there at noon means I’ll either leave before noon or come after noon (need more context for this one).

    Does this help?

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Thank you, Adam!

This lesson is really important. I am going to study hard until I speak like a native English speaker!

See you later!

Sunday, January 22nd 2017

1. Please have this project finished until i leave the office

Thursday, January 26th 2017

    Hi Gaurav,

    It should be by the time. Means before I leave. Does this clear it up?

    Friday, February 10th 2017

Here is my question,
If someone says ” I will have holidays until october” does it mean he will be back to work from Novemver?

Friday, January 27th 2017

    Hi Dungrany,

    In this case he would have to be more specific. I will have (be on) holidays until the beginning/middle/end of October. If end, then yes, back to work November.

    Does this help?

    Friday, February 10th 2017

Excellent explanation.
By the time continue my english lesson with Engvid.com

Wednesday, February 1st 2017

Saturday, February 4th 2017

Hi Adam! Another awesome lesson, even though a bit difficult! Anyway I got 9/10 and I’m quite happy!
Only a question:
in the last question it would be really wrong to say “no later than I leave the office”? It sounds right to my ears! ;)

Saturday, February 4th 2017

    Hi Calibardo,

    You can say no later than when I leave the office. Still need a time expression/clause/ Does this sound ok?

    Friday, February 10th 2017

Thanks for your explanation

Monday, February 6th 2017

Sir, I love your lessons. I have a doubt. When to wright ram’s book and when to wright book of ram. Please help sir.

Monday, February 6th 2017

    Hi Sibbi,

    The Book of Ram sounds like Ram is an animal or a person. If an animal, can’t be Ram’s. If a person, then too personal. If it’s a religious text, then Book of Ram

    Does this help?

    Friday, February 10th 2017

This video it’s a good explanation. Thanks

Tuesday, February 7th 2017

hold on i get 10 /10 easily,is me getting sharper or the quiz painless or perhaps nor of the above, it could be the side effect of double espresso :) however thanks a million Mr.Adam looking forward to learn more

Wednesday, February 8th 2017

Hi Adam,
Thanks for your valuable lesson.
By the way, Could you please help me to explain when to use amount of vs amounts of? I’ve got so much confusion about it. Hope to see your reply soon.

Wednesday, February 15th 2017

he is best teacher to me on engvid

Monday, February 20th 2017

Thanks Adam now i feel ready to start using these prepositions

Wednesday, February 22nd 2017

it is little bit confusing
can you please explain me with more examples?? :)

Thursday, February 23rd 2017

Hi Adam;
I think answers to questions five and seven should be ” by the end of the month ” and ” had had “, respectively. Would you mind dreadfully if I ask you to explain more about that?

Monday, February 27th 2017

Sometimes it`s difficult because I truly feel you could use more than one preposition, at the end I got 9/10 but it was a great lesson.

Monday, February 27th 2017

I have to watch lesson video again to clear confusion.

Monday, February 27th 2017

Tuesday, April 4th 2017

Then, has these phrases the same meaning (can I use both in the same situation)? If I Understood, both are correct…
– By the end of the lesson… (short) or
– But the time that we ended the lesson… (long)

Thursday, April 6th 2017

What a brilliant lesson. It’s great. And I think this lesson is for intermidiate.

Sunday, April 30th 2017

Nice, very useful, thanks

Saturday, May 6th 2017

Hi Adam,
In the fourth sentence the verb ” he arrived ”
was adjective clause but it changed to adverbial clause in the sixth one and usage of “by” was denied. what’s happening to it?

Wednesday, May 10th 2017

Hi Sir!! the lesson was very helpful.
Can your team put more quiz on different topic wise.like quiz on preposition, adverbs, adjectives, tenses etc.
it will be more specific and helpful.
Thank you.
