Woo to day I’m the first one.
Thanks, I found this lesson very helpful, but I have doubt about question 6 so help me.

    Hi Prashant,

    Shocks (or shock absorbers)are the coils/springs that absorb a hit so that your tires don’t burst or other damage happens to your car. Potholes are holes in the road that your tire falls into. Does this help?

Woo to day I’m the first one.
Thanks, I found this lesson very helpful, but I have doubt about question.

Sorry about that, my PC keyboard is not working properly.

Saturday, August 25th 2018

Got 80. Marvelous lesson. Thank you Adam! <3

Saturday, August 25th 2018

Got 90%. It’s very educative. Thank you.

I missed question 1. I think the answer should be “water”. Any types of fluid that are used to cool system is a coolant. Specifically, we use water as a coolant in the radiator.

Saturday, August 25th 2018

    HI Isma’il,

    Water evaporates when it gets hot, so as a coolant it wouldn’t work because it would be gone soon. Coolant is a chemical that stays liquid even in high heat.

Hi, Adam!
Why you call all wheel – “tire”?
I think that tire is a part of wheel.
Tire + Rim = Wheel

Saturday, August 25th 2018

    You are absolutely right. A tire is a rubber part of a wheel.

    Friday, August 31st 2018

    Cause speaking of cars in an informal way we use the word “tire” to indicate the entire wheel (tire+rim).

    Monday, September 10th 2018

    Hi AcidJumper,

    Sometimes people get confused by the term wheel because of the steering wheel. saying tire makes sure we are focused on the wheels outside the car.

    People will understand the full wheel even if you say tire because a tire by itself is useless. Also, in the trunk you have a spare tire, not a spare wheel.

    Hope this helps.

I found this lesson very useful… but hard to remember for me as I don’t have a car right now.. I finally know the difference between rearview mirror and sideview mirrors.. Thanks

Saturday, August 25th 2018

I have got 9 it’s quite good. But I still don’t understand at first question: the radiator usually use water for coolant engine, so i think choose water is correct but the answer correctly is coolant

Saturday, August 25th 2018

    At early stages we use water as a coolant but due to its low boiling point it cannot cool the engine fast and also it evaporate easily and cause damage. Also water is a good corrosive agent. And in Europe, Russia, USA, Canada etc. territories, where in winter is lower °C, water simply freeze.

    Saturday, August 25th 2018

      Very well explained.

      Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

    Coolant is the same as antifreeze.

    Friday, August 31st 2018

      Yes, it is Digranoff.

      Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

    Water evaporates at 100 degrees Celsius, coolant do not.

    Monday, September 10th 2018

    Hi Nguyen,

    Please read Acid Jumper’s answer if you haven’t already. it’s quite good.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

Thank you teacher….!!!

Saturday, August 25th 2018

Saturday, August 25th 2018

Brilliant lesson for an enthusiastic about cars like me. I specially like European classic cars. But I wouldn´t make a fuss if someone gave me an old Ford Mustang.
Just a question Adam: are there more manual or automatic cars in Canada??
Thank you so much Sir!!!

Sunday, August 26th 2018

    Hi Knopfler,

    Manual cars used to be standard, but these days most cars are automatic. You actually need to request a manual car. Sports cars are a bit different, but even they are majority auto I think.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

Hello i need your help in a lesson where i have been asked to rearrange a very long sentence. But words are mingled. They put verb first, then the object and subject… I would like to know if there is any technic to resolve it. Thank you by expecting a reply from your side.Thank you very much for your job. From Senegal see you soon!

Tuesday, August 28th 2018

    Hi Mols,

    The most common snetence type is S – V – O, but there are others. Figure out who/what is doing the action and to whom/what. then you’ll know the right positions for each.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

Shock absorbers or shocks. Which of these expressions is more commonly used?

Friday, August 31st 2018

    Hi Digranoff,

    For those who don’t know much about cars, it’s shock absorbers. Those who do know, simply shorten it to shocks.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

Hey Adam,
I hope my message finds you well
I would be glad if you could do me a favor and tell me tips on how could I be a better teacher, things I should care at class

Wednesday, September 5th 2018

    Hi Mehdi,

    The best tip I can give you is that you need to learn as much as your students. That said, don’t be afraid to say the words “I don’t know”– just make sure you do know for the next class ;)

    Good luck

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

Hi Adam,
Could you please help me?
Which dictionary is the best for us (English as a foreign language )
many thanks

Thursday, September 6th 2018

Hey Adam
Could you please answer my question
When we ask something we generally use do, does, did like (why do you need that book?)
So what happens if we ask like (why you need that book?) what is the necessity of using do in this question that’s kinda obvious

Friday, September 7th 2018

    Well, Mehdi, the simplest answer is that that is how the language is constructed ;) We can take lots of shortcuts, but then we would change the language itself. I’m sure you can do the same in your language. Keep in mind that if you ask a native speak “Why you need that book?”, he would understand you, but he will also understand that English is not your first language.
    Think of this as an example–I ain’t got none ( I haven’t got any)– This person would be understood, but his/her education level would also be understood.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2018

i got 50 % how can i re-take the Quiz again ? :)
