Why FAQ is used singular.this is fak not fax

soozi

    Hi Soozi,

    Some people do say FAQs, but technically, the s is part of the word being shortened, so don’t need to add an extra s.

    Also, these usually come as a single group (on a website for example) so treated as one thing.

    Does this help?

    Adam

You got 10 correct out of 10.

Marat-Pokrovsky

Is the verb to MC or to emcee?

Emmolina

    Hi Emmolina,

    Yes, MC can be a noun or a verb: to MC the event means to be the MC for the event.

Hello Adam. Is it possible to make a lesson about parasite words: thinking sound, meaningless fillers, interjunctions like “You Know”, “Like” etc (sorry, i don’t know a lot) to recognize them in a regular speech? It’s very interesting. Unfortunately, some of your colleagues on Engvid (I suppose you know it) use these words very often. Thanks for your lessons. You’re the best teacher for me because you love your language as I love mine

Andy Dixi

    Hi Andy,
    That’s a good idea. I know I’m guilty of this myself :)I’ll see what I can do.

    Adam

      Well, maybe you use them too, but you do it very quickly, so I don’t notice. You can advise your colleagues to get out this way:)

      Andy Dixi

        Will do ;)

        Adam

thank you very much Mr. Adam,

Aml Mounier

nguyen van long

Sir i didn’t understand the concept in 6:56 can u please explain that

amina1akter

    Hi Amina,

    An example: when police are looking for whoever committed some crimes, they often have an idea if these crimes were committed by the same person of different people. If the crimes have a lot of similarities, this will demonstrate the criminal’s MO, or his preferred way of doing things. This can also be applied in business as some managers have a particular MO when it comes to supervising staff.

    It essentially means way of doing.

    Does this help?

    Adam

I used to wish to have a BFF but now I don’t believe that there’s such one in this world. At least in “my dictionary”.

Astri

    You’ll find him or her eventually Astri :)

    Adam

Dear Adam,
Would you please make an episode about tense in normal daily conversation.
When I am speaking with my colleges and I tell them that I do something, should I use present or future tense?

CyrusKing

    Hi Cyrus,

    It depends, are you doing it now or will you do it in the future.

    There is no normal conversation when it comes to tenses; they simply function as intended.

    I recommend you get a good grammar book to practice all of them.

    Adam

Thank you

Gokulk

Thank you, Adam!!!

Jakub Alvarez

kiran kumar

    Hi Kiran! If you want to practise your English, we can talk by Skype as you said.
    Let me Know, so you can arrange.
    See you!

    GmZuanazzi

Hi Adam. In the first question, the “asap” couldn’t be a correct answer as well? I mean, “The manager is so angry, that if I were you, I would hurry!” Thanks in advance.

Marcio07

    Yeah, I’m thinking the same.

    Dikrahabsaoui

    Hi Marcio,

    If it is part of the first sentence, then yes:

    The manager wants to see you in her office ASAP. Oh, and FYI, she’s really angry!
    The manager wants to see you in her office. Oh, and do it ASAP; she’s really angry!

    Does this help?

    Adam

      Sure, it helps a lot. Thanks again!

      Marcio07

I got 10/10

Dikrahabsaoui

I got 8/10. thanks Adam

    Emmolina

Dear,Adam
I have one question for you.
How to write essay If I have not idea for essay ?
What should I do ?

Sunnatbek

Hi Sir!
I have a big problem I know english but in many cases I cant speak and words lost in my mind what should I do?

Hosna1997

    Hi Hosna,

    Try listening to lectures and then reading the transcript out loud. Record yourself and compare. The more you speak out loud, the more your inherent English will come out more easily.

    Try ted.com for some lectures.

    Mainly, just speak, even alone. It’s all about practice.

    Adam

      Thanks sir Adam for giving me the best idea.

      Hosna1997

Hello Sir,
I wrote a cover letter but I need you to check it if it is well written or not. Could you please?

Somia Bin Naqeeb

    Sorry, our teachers cannot check your writing for you. This site is for more general learning.

Khalil Camara

    Hi Khalil. It seems there may a problem with your system audio. Check the volume, the mute button, etc. Hope this helps.

    Adam

Thanks Adam!
Great Class!,

GmZuanazzi

T.Adam, can I ask what modus operandi means?

vicker

    The way of doing something.

    VitaliiSmirnov1994

    Hi Vicker,

    It means the way of doing something. Once people develop a pattern in how they do certain things, we call this an M.O.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thanks Adam, ^^

Alhamed
