Why FAQ is used singular.this is fak not fax

Saturday, October 12th 2019

    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?

    Thursday, October 31st 2019

Hello!
Is the verb to MC or to emcee?

Saturday, October 12th 2019

    Hi Emmolina,

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

Hi, I took the quiz got 90.

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

Saturday, October 12th 2019

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

    Thursday, October 31st 2019

      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:)

      Thursday, October 31st 2019

        Will do ;)

        Thursday, November 21st 2019

Sunday, October 13th 2019

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

Sunday, October 13th 2019

    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?

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”.

Sunday, October 13th 2019

    You’ll find him or her eventually Astri :)

    Thursday, October 31st 2019

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?

Monday, October 14th 2019

    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.

    Thursday, October 31st 2019

Thank you

Monday, October 14th 2019

Thank you, Adam!!!

Monday, October 14th 2019

I want to improve my speaking and grammar skills.
If any body help me .
I am ready for Skype video.

Monday, October 14th 2019

    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!

    Thursday, November 14th 2019

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.

Monday, October 14th 2019

    Yeah, I’m thinking the same.

    Monday, October 14th 2019

    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?

    Thursday, October 31st 2019

      Sure, it helps a lot. Thanks again!

What should I do ?

Friday, October 25th 2019

    Hi Sunnatbek,

    You should start building an idea bank to collect ideas before your test. I made a video about this on my other channel so you can see how to do it:

    Hope this helps.

    Thursday, October 31st 2019

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?

Sunday, October 27th 2019

    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.

    Thursday, October 31st 2019

      Thanks sir Adam for giving me the best idea.

      Saturday, November 2nd 2019

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

Tuesday, October 29th 2019

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

    Thursday, October 31st 2019
