the idioms in this lesson are very hard, they are illiogical and rarely see in conversation everyday, maybe my level English is still low so i don’t reach it, anyway thank Adam and hope your next lesson will eassily

    Yeah ! I have just heard one of them several times. Obviously , they are make no sense when you try to understand the meaning. But after watching this vid , I’m totally able to understand and know how to use them. You need to focus on how native speaker use them in daily life. Don’t stress about idioms that much.


    Hi Nguyen,

    Now that you have seen them, I am sure you will notice them a bit more in natural dialogue. Sometimes idioms are slipped in and by the time you notice that something doesn’t make sense, you will be concentrating on the next part of the conversation and will have forgotten the idiom. I hope you’ll understand them now :)


I’m Russian. I have been studying English for a year. I mostly study it by myself and learn a lot on the internet. I think that my listening skills are not good. What can I do? Please, help me! Do I have a slim chance to improve my English using the internet? It appears to be as clear as mud. But as I’m head over heels in love with the English language I do believe it’ll help and everything will be all right – right as rain… Thank you, Adam.

    Hi Larissa :) good idiom use.

    The internet is actually a great way to learn English. As for listening, the more you do, the better it will become. You should look for transcripts or captions whenever possible to read along as you listen. Eventually, you won’t need them, but for now they will help.


Hi Adam. I’m glad I see your lesson every time because you’re my favourite Engvid teacher and I like your style of teaching! 🙂❤👍 Adam, do you have Instagram or Facebook? I’ll be keen to follow you.🙂
Adam, maybe could you make a lesson about fluency, I know you have fluency lesson about IELTS theme, but generally, the one about related it? Thank you in advance, Adam!🙂 All the best to you and your family…🙂👋

Hello Adam
Thank you for the lesson. We use similar expressions here in Germany. So we know “Hals über Kopf” which literally means neck over heels for head over heels. What I wanted to say is that we talk and think similarly to you. kind regards from Germany


Hello, Adam Thank you so much for your amazing lessons, I imploringly want you to do me a favor and do/put a lesson on ‘Preposition+which’ like of which, by which, at which, in which, etc.
God bless.

    Hi Seyed,

    I’ll get on that ;)


That was Great Adam, thank you. In my language, we have the same or very similar expressions / idioms, so theoretically, it should be clear as mud but it can be confusing in real life. :)


Thanks a lot Adam!!Nice lesson ;)


Brilliant lesson


Thank you Adam for your brilliant lesson again.
The expression/idiom “CAN´T HELP IT BUT” is in my language with the exactly same meaning as in English. This is why it´s easy to understand and use it now.


thank you engvid teachers
I am really enriching my vocabulary through this platform.


Thank you Alex!

thank you so much


I am a new subscriber and I think that this decision is right as rain and once I saw the NOUN CLAUSE video , I subscribed . Can you please tell me the meaning of HOT POTATO 🥔🥔 . IT IS MY DOUBT . PLEASE 🙏🙏REPLY


    Welcome Venkat,

    A hot potato is a controversial topic that no one really wants to discuss, so they throw it to someone else, like holding a hot potato in your hand hurts so you throw it away. Hope this helps.


Thank you, Adam, this class was very nice!


thanks alot for your effort :)


Thanks a lot.

HI Adam, I have discovered you about two months ago. I am very pleased to take lessons of English with you. I really appreciate your style ans the information you provide. I have a question.
I am reading a book written by Nelson Mandela. He often use a tense I don’t really understand why.

He says for example to describe a past situation I would drive whole night in the country or that night I would arrived late.

Why use this tense instead of saying I drove or I arrived ?

Thank you for your answer and thank you to be there.

Gerard Chagnon

    Welcome Gerard,

    Good question.

    We often use would to talk about past habits. Check to see if he is using it mostly to discuss things he normally did, not specific events.

    Also, would is used in narration (storytelling) to remove the author a little bit from the situation, that is, to make him a character in his own story.

    I hope this helps.


Hey Adam,

I like all your videos.
There is the same stuff with the current one! :)

Just would like to clarify with the quiz #5:
“5. Noah: So, that’s the end of the lesson. Is everyone clear on how to do the equation?
Britt: Sure, it’s _______. The answer is 42, right? Just a guess.”.

Why “clear as mud” answer is correct?

Here are my thoughts:
– “clear as mud” means “don’t understand at all”.
– “right as rain” means “very good”

So, if Noah asks “Is everyone clear?” and after that Britt starts off with “Sure!” next I expect to here “it’s clear” or “it’s understandable” or something like that.

So, my answer is “right as rain”.

Could you please clarify if my reasoning is wrong.

I’ll appreciate your feedback.


    Maybe for last sentence: “Just a guess” which means Britt is not sure about his answer. And the word “sure” in beginning is for: Britt is confident that he not get the equation & problem is unclear for him.


      Good answer Jamalsr ;)


    Hi Marsius,

    I can see how this is confusing.

    The clue is “just a guess”, meaning that she doesn’t actually know because it is not clear. Also, if she knew, she would say “Sure, it’s answer.”

    Also, right as rain is more about a feeling than knowing something. I feel right as rain, or this situation feels right as rain.

    Does this help?


Thank you for this useful lesson!!
