Warum werden dies Fragen nicht in Englisch gestellt und in einem unverständlichem schlechten Deutsch?

Tuesday, February 20th 2018

    its automated translate from youtube ,its not accurate

    Tuesday, February 20th 2018

thanks a lot, Adam

Tuesday, February 20th 2018

Adam please help me
Peierrie tends to put … dealing with problems, rather than dealing with them immediately
1.off
2.over

Tuesday, February 20th 2018

    When you don’t want to deal with the problem right away, you want to delay solving the problem, then you put off the problem.

    Saturday, February 24th 2018

      Thank you

      Sunday, February 25th 2018

    Hi Sophio1,

    Rokaly is right, it is put off (delay).

Helo Adam! As always your classe was awesome. I learned important terms today. Day after day my English is improving with your support and all the teachers at Engvid.com. Thank you very much.

Tuesday, February 20th 2018

Shouldn’t be “email it” instead of “email them” in the first question?

Tuesday, February 20th 2018

    Hi Gdcc,

    Minutes, though it is the collection of notes, is referred to as the individual notes rather than the collection itself. This is called an aggregate noun. For example, clothes is really the collection of all the pieces, but we still refer to the plural pieces.

    Does this help?

    Friday, March 9th 2018

      Thanks Adam :)

      Friday, March 9th 2018

Wednesday, February 21st 2018

Thanks. It was a good lesson for me. And I got 90 out of 100. I’ve made mistake in the word “unanimous” even I know its meaning “everybody agree”. :D

Wednesday, February 21st 2018

Thank you Adam! This litsen is too short and lspecialized vocabulary is a ittle bit difficult for me too.

Wednesday, February 21st 2018

Hi Adam! IZ it right sentence?”I played everyday”Can we use everyday in the past ( sentence).Iz it possibile?

Wednesday, February 21st 2018

    1. Last year I was playing a football everyday.
    2. I stopped at my traffic light everyday last winter.

    Play is verb that last for longer period of time. It is better to use past continues tense:
    I,he,she,it + was + verb+ing …

    Stop is verb that is not lasting for period, but happens in a moment, so it better to be used as past simple tense:
    Subject + regular verb+ed
    or
    Subject + irregular verb (2. verb form)

    Saturday, February 24th 2018

      I made a mistake.
      Wrong: “at my traffic light”
      Correct: “at traffic light”

      Saturday, February 24th 2018

        Hi Rokaly,

        every day vs. everyday. The latter means common ;)

        Friday, March 9th 2018

    Hi Almazradio,

    Yes, every day is simply an adverb of frequency:

    When I was in high school, I used to read every day.

    By the way, I hope you noticed that I used every day, not everyday. Everyday means common.

    Friday, March 9th 2018

Thank you Adam for your very clean pronunciation!

Wednesday, February 21st 2018

Thank you
