ASAP? Study the
ABCsof everyday speech. Native English speakers often use acronyms as regular vocabulary in order to shorten their speech. An acronym is a word formed by the initial letter or group of letters of words in a phrase. For example, did you know that
CEOis an acronym for
chief executive officer? Here is another acronym you may know:
LOLfor “laughing out loud”! In this lesson, we will look at some commonly used acronyms for everyday situations, like
AC, and more. There are dozens of very common acronyms in English. Start learning them now, or you’ll be
90. Thanks Adam!
Welcome AmyLe :)
Thank you!!! You’re the best teacher, Adam!!! =))
Why FAQ is used singular.this is fak not fax
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?

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
That’s a good idea. I know I’m guilty of this myself :)I’ll see what I can do.
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:)
Will do ;)
thank you very much Mr. Adam,
It will efficient when I try to read an English book. Thanks Adam.
20. OMG it is complicated
I got 8/10, the lesson is very useful and a bit difficut. Thank Adam
Sir i didn’t understand the concept in 6:56 can u please explain that
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”.
You’ll find him or her eventually Astri :)
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?
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.
Thank you, Adam!!!
I want to improve my speaking and grammar skills.
If any body help me .
I am ready for Skype video.
Hi Kiran! If you want to practise your English, we can talk by Skype as you said.
Let me Know, so you can arrange.
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.
Yeah, I’m thinking the same.
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?
Sure, it helps a lot. Thanks again!
I got 10/10
I got 8/10. thanks Adam
Thank you Mr. Adam.
But where is Adam?))
In my opinion, he is busy getting ready for Halloween.
I have one question for you.
How to write essay If I have not idea for essay ?
What should I do ?
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.
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?
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.
Thanks sir Adam for giving me the best idea.
I wrote a cover letter but I need you to check it if it is well written or not. Could you please?
Sorry, our teachers cannot check your writing for you. This site is for more general learning.
Thanks everyone :)
You’re welcome!!! :)
hello teacher, why i don’t hear the sound? and what can i do to hear it plese?
Hi Khalil. It seems there may a problem with your system audio. Check the volume, the mute button, etc. Hope this helps.
T.Adam, can I ask what modus operandi means?
The way of doing something.
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?
Thanks Adam, ^^
I got 10 correct out of 10! Thank you Adam
