Thanks a lot, Adam! I cannot see any minuses in your explanation. My vocabulary has grown exponentially since I subscribed to your channel. What I particularly love about your lessons is that you never go off on a tangent and everything in the videos adds up.
I have heard one more ‘math’ expression – ‘find a common denominator’ – do you use it in everyday speech?

Tuesday, December 11th 2018

    This comment was so well-written that at first I didn’t guess what lesson it was for!

    Yes, “find a common denominator” is also used in everyday language. For example, from this news story about a proposed change to Spain’s time zones:

    “Let’s give the European Parliament an opportunity to see if it is able to find a common denominator between countries that are in such different geographical situations.”

    Hi SpicyBunny (I like the name :) )

    Indeed, that was very well written.

    A common denominator is a common expression. We also use “the lowest common denominator” to find what is common to the lowest level so that it can include everyone. For example, some teachers teach to the lowest common denominator so that no-one is left behind.

    Hope this helps.

Hi Adam,I appreciate your effort.
I got 9 out of 10.
Would you mind making a video about using modals (should – have to – must )in IELTS essays when we are giving our perspectives

Tuesday, December 11th 2018

Hi Adam,I appreciate your effort.
I got 9 out of 10.
Would you mind making a video about using modals (should – have to – must )in IELTS essays when we are giving our perspectives about issues we have to debate , because I got confused while reading a training essay two days before on a book called ((Vocabulary For IELTS)).
Thanks in advance

    I’ll see what I can do Muhammad.

    Friday, January 4th 2019

It is a great lesson; congratulations.

Tuesday, December 11th 2018

Very interesting lesson Adam! Beyond two expression: what’s his angle? and add up, that are new for me, all of the others have an equivalent and an exactly same meaning in Spanish. Thanks!

Tuesday, December 11th 2018

Hey Adam, thanks for the expressions!!!!! really usefull!!!I’ve heard once that math can be a friend of english learners, now i know why kkkkkk. Now replying “Rezarayan’s” he said everyboby could answer him so here it goes. The question, i believe, would be: who’s the 44th president of US? or which president of US is Obama?

Tuesday, December 11th 2018

    Ok but If we dont know that the Obama is 44th president thus how should we ask it?
    Because we have two kind of number first numbers like 1,2,3,4… and the others 1th , 2nd, 3th and etc…
    Which number mean : 1 or 2 or 44 but the type here is 1th or 44th.
    So how can we ask our question.
    Thanks

Friday, December 14th 2018

Thanks so much Adam!!Fortunately, most of the expressions are used in Spanish as well, which helps a lot ;)

Friday, December 14th 2018

Thanks Adam!
i have one quetion,like we always say He is interested in playing football but we never say he interests in playing football…is that a passive voice or what?
i will be grateful if u give me the answer.

Friday, December 14th 2018

    Hi Poklimgon,

    We can say he has an interest in playing football. or, his interests include playing football. These are both simple sentences with ‘interest’ as a noun.

    Does this help?

    Friday, January 4th 2019

Dear Admam!
i don’t really understand about ” lowest common denominator”, can you give me more examples about this?

Saturday, December 15th 2018

    Hi JennyN

    We use “the lowest common denominator” to find what is common to the lowest level so that it can include everyone. For example, some teachers teach to the lowest common denominator so that no-one is left behind.This means that the teacher figures out what everyone can understand and teachers that. It’s not a good approach, but a common one.

    Does this help?

Very original and creative lesson. Thanks Adam.
Happy Christmas and a smile.

    Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year to you too Byte :)

Dear teacher! I highly appreciate your lessons and the Engvid is one of the teaching materials for my students together with four books of C. E. Eckersley, BBC World Service, CBC Radio, VOA. I’m not quite sure that I can ask for a favour but sometimes life creates such situation that I need help in some points, especially in the sequence of tenses or tense agreement. Yes I use forums and ask questions there and get really good advice, but in some questions there is some misunderstanding, I think, from my side. Would it be all right to do so, and might I ask some questions if there is any need?
Thank You very much indeed!

Wednesday, December 19th 2018

    By all means, Tarasevol. I’ll do my best to answer :)

    Friday, January 4th 2019

Dear mr adam, firstly thank you very much for your lessons. i have a question to you to understant a topic very well. There is a statament below that i took it from dictionary but i could not understan why this sentence prepared like this.
“If a clock strikes, a bell rings to show what the time is.” This is the sentence.
In this sentece why ‘is’ come after word ‘time’. Can it be true like this. If a clock strikes, a bell rings to show what the time is it?
I am looking forward to you to response my question.

Thursday, December 27th 2018

    Hi Gsam,

    If a clock strikes, a bell rings to show what the time is it? — in this example, you are starting with a sentence and ending with a question. This doesn’t work.
    what the time is — this is a noun clause, which follows the standard structure of sub-verb. what is just the noun clause conjunction.

    Does this help?

    Friday, January 4th 2019

Dear Mr Adam,I appreciate for your help,for your valuable lessons.Thank you very very much!!!

Friday, January 4th 2019

Thanks everyone :)

Friday, January 4th 2019

Thank you for your quick response. That’s enough for me. Also, i follow your lessons from youtube channel. I listened noun clauses lesson and now undrstood why the sentence prepared as written in dictionary.

Friday, January 4th 2019
