I’m not good at note taking.
Taking note was difficult because I forgot my code :(
So I should make list, should I. Thank you for your great lesson, Adam. Code and abbreviation look mysterious and curious :)

    As far as I can tell, this new version of the TOEFL Test follows a computer-based format. It means that your typing skills also play a key role on test results, don’t they? or do they use voice recognition software?

    I think the IELTS test is a bit more reliable than the TOEFL when it comes to integrating language skills since in the IELTS speaking section you do not respond to a machine (computer)during the test; you actually talk to the test administrator who is usually an English native speaker.

    It is a fact that standarized tests and language courses are changing to unconventional formats to face the new challenges of ICTs.

    Thanks for all these great test tips Adam.

    P.S. You are a man of your word, You talked a bit faster than we were used to.

    Regino

      Actually, Regino,IELTS is becoming the more popular test around the world. And yes, typing skills do play some role, but on the IELTS spelling counts, which is why some prefer the TOEFL.It ca be argued that these days spelling is less of a concern because of spellcheckers, but then again, that is why people are losing their spelling abilities. ;)

      Anyway, glad you liked the lesson.

      Adam

        Thank you Regino and Adam :) I think your comments are useful for everyone who take IELTS and TOEFL.

    Hi N. Gouda,

    Vheck my site. there might be some good information for you there as well. In the meantime, I will prepare more material for here.

    Adam

Hello Adam! What difference between:
– I was to London
and
– I was in London.
Thank you.

KATRIN777

    You should say I have been TO london. or I was IN london.
    in Past simple we use IN . In present perfect we use TO.

    Dzhemil

      At any rate I can say “I WAS TO LONDON” if some one would ask me “WHERE WERE YOU GOING?”.

      KATRIN777

      Well, when you say that you have been TO somewhere, it means that you went to that place and you are still there, but you do not live there.
      But when you say that you have been IN (somewhere), it means that you have been living there for an amount of time.

      frailyn5

        Sorry.. you use TO when you went somewhere and you are back now. My fault.

        frailyn5

          Of course when somebody says I’VE BEEN TO LONDON it means
          that he’s back now, but what about I WAS TO LONDON?

          KATRIN777

          I think what changes is the tense of the verb but the meaning is exactly the same.. Lets ask Adam.

          frailyn5

    I been to London or was to London means that you are not longer exist there ! you been there but you left
    – i been in London, it means you still live there
    <3

    anwarLawer

    Hi Katrin,

    A good discussion going on here :)

    I have been to London means that you have had the experience in your past of going there. You are not there now.

    I have been in London– if someone asks where have you been? they usually mean recently. So your answer (I have been in London), means that is where you were for some time and now you are back where you are.
    To answer the same question (where have you been?)you can answer “I was in London.” because the time reference is understood.

    I was to London is grammatically incorrect. You could say I went to London. The preposition ‘to’ shows direction of a movement, so you generally don’t use it with a ‘be’ verb.

    Does this help?

    Adam

      one more point: I have been to London means I have gone there in the past. That’s why we can use it with the ‘be’ verb in this sense.

      Adam

        Thank you Adan. I didn’t expect that I HAVE BEEN TO LONDON means experience in the past. I thought it is just happened right now.

        KATRIN777

          Also I knew that WAS TO the same with OUGHT TO, so I WAS TO LONDON incorrect. Thank you very much Adam.

          KATRIN777

          Sorry for the mistake in YOUR NAME!!!!!!!!!!!
          I can’t improve it. S O R R Y!!!
          I wasn’t attentive!

          KATRIN777

          Hi KATRIN777 ,

takwa wanderlust

Thank you Adam
It is a good tips for TOEFL & IELTS test
we must remember those notes.

Adam i love you and i am really a fan of you, i wish i had you as a teacher in real life,your way in teaching is awesome.

Zoaldyeck

    Thank you Zoaldyeck :)

    Adam

There placement test before the study in British institute could you tell me about that exam and how can I get a high score because I want to study from intermediate
thank you a lot you are a great teacher.

LOL1LOL

    Hi LOL,

    I’m afraid I don’t know about the placement test at the British Institute. I assume they create their own test. You might be able to email them and get a sample. But, having said that, the point of a placement test is to see where your English level is at so that they can put you in the right program. I’m not sure you are supposed to study for it.

    Let me know if I can help though.

    Adam

Thanks Adam, you are a great teacher, you always give us good advice:)

byte

Thanks a lot:) ….I didn’t do well at the quiz :/ however it really needs a lot of practice.

Rahaf

    hi . can i speake english with u to improve myself and yourself in english … kkapo87@yahoo.com

    Muhammad samy

can we use the abbreviation “ex” instead of “eg” for examples??? I mean if we use it,will the others know that we mean the same as “eg”??

Rahaf

    Yes and Yes. ex is just less formal than eg.
    Actually, you just use what you understand better and faster when you reread your note again. :)

    Tety

    Hi Rahaf,

    As Tety said, yes, ex. will work as well as eg. On the test your notes are for you, so whatever works for you is good. Others will also understand ex. in context. On a formal academic essay, however, use e.g.

    Adam

I’m very happy that I got 6 correct out of 6 for this quiz.Thank you,Adam, for this great lesson.
———————————-
By the way, I appreciate someone can practice English with me via Skype ( ID:jarods).Thank you,every one.

jarods

thank you Adam for that Great lesson.

I have a question.
what is the difference between (one another)and (each other)?
thank you in Adavance !!!

fathy elmalt

Thank you Adam, your lesson very useful, but I just got 3/6 question :(

Khiem An

thanks adam it was a useful lesson . i just wanna suggest an idea … why doesn’t engvid add a reading section practice? … for example teachers put texts twice a week about diffiente topics like scientific .. economic … stories .. whatever .. then we take the quiz as always.. so we can improve reading skills.. it also helps students who are going to do iElts and toefl exams .. i hope this idea would be accepted :) … thanks again to all staff of engvid u r doing agreat job:)

aboood1994

    Hi Aboood,

    It is a great idea, but not as easy as it seems. I am working on this for my site. I will let you know when it is up and running.

    Adam

please .. i want to get all your lesson in CD or DVD
How can i ?

humood

    Hi Humood,

    I’m not sure that they are available on CD or DVD. I will find out and get back to you.

    Adam

it was greatt, i really enjoyed it,but i need to improve the attention like my first teacher said

efren64

Hi Adam, your lesson are so interesting. I would like to ask you what is the best way to study for the TOEFL test, it has many things and for me have been so difficult to create my study plan. I practice my listening everyday, with difrerent issues and I write sometimes abou it. However I think that I should have a better methodology. Thanks again.

manuelco

    Hi Manuelco,

    Actually, practicing every day is the best way. Read a lot and build your vocab. Create questions based on the TOEFL structure and answer them. As for the writing, have someone check it for you and learn to self-edit.
    Also, record yourself speaking and listen for your own mistakes.
    Concentrate on a different skill each day, and once a week take a full practice test to build stamina.

    I hope this helps a little.

    Adam

Your sound are so wonderful. Can you tell me some methods of speaking English well?

princessbeautiful

    The only way to improve, Princess, is to do it every day. Find a prince and practice :)

    Adam

    you are just kidding. Iam so young that I can’t have a boyfriend at my age

    princessbeautiful

      Yes just kidding :)

      I thought you were Avril Lavigne, that’s why lol

      Adam

thanks Adam..very well

Owaid

Thanks Adam, your classes are as good as usual, and I really keen on your teaching style, and I’m trying to learn all these approaches and knowledge that you put online as much as I as can, cuz I really want to be a English teacher in the future, can you give me some advice of using English in daily life and being a teacher ?

tomchang2017

    Hi Tom,

    Ideally, as a teacher you want to learn as much as you teach. Start learning new things all the time, just do it in English. This way you improve your language, and you will have more to offer your students. It makes it much easier for students when the teacher can come up with different examples to illustrate a point. So you need to have a lot of examples, which will come from your own learning.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Adam

thanks a million Engvid :)

syarah18

When the subject is notetaking I have to learn much more! Skills for notetaking that’s something I need to overcome. And the proof was this quizz. 2/6. The worse score ever since I attend to the EngVid.

Jorge Pedroso

    I did the same worse score!!!
    Now we are surprised about ourselves,aren’t we??

    Rahaf

      Yep, that´s life.
      By the way in portuguese you use ex. for example but in English I think you must use e.g. (you say for example, but write e.g. the truth is I dunno why?). Cheers

      Jorge Pedroso

        Thanks my friend :)

        Rahaf

Where’s that video about “looking forward to”.I can’t find it,could anyone help me,please??

Rahaf

it will be hard but we will do it

gokseltuzun

Wow! I got 100. Thank you Adam. U ar d bst tchr (you are the best teacher)
I did IELTS G and got 8 for reading and 6.5 for each other papers. I need 7 each. In first time I did Lots of past papers and didn’t know about the Engvid.com. Anyway I’m practicing again and looking forward to do the exam again. Thank you again.

Dilanka

    Good luck Dilanka :)

    Adam

Unfortunately you can´t take notes on my country, it is not permitted to write anything down on either the answer sheet or the examination paper.

Roger1

    Hi Roger,

    You should look into that. IELTS and TOEFL both allow it. Ask around.

    Adam

this is the best webpage ever made

conan0723

Now that I realize how important it is to take note while listening. I never took note before! Thank you so much Adam! That’s useful for me :)
Hope to see your next lessons!

lasso

please teach me how to do editing and omission

palakshi nautiyal

    Hi Pallo,

    That is a whole course in itself. Actually, not sure what you mean by ‘omission’. Anyway, If you have excellent grammar, you can be an editor. It’s just practice to get the speed for it.

    Adam

Hi again, Adam.
I can see in text books “I LIKE READING BOOKS”,”I LIKE PLAYING GAMES”. But can I say ” I LIKE READ BOOKS” and so on.
Thanks.

KATRIN777

    Or “I LIKE TO READ…” and when we have to use “TO” in before verb?

    KATRIN777

      There must not be IN. Sorry…

      KATRIN777

        Hi Katrin,

        I’ll make a lesson about this. In the meantime, I like to play games and I like playing games are both correct. It must be either ‘-ing’ or ‘to’ after verbs such as ‘like’.

        I know this might not help, but I’ll get to it soon :)

        Adam

          That’s helped me Adam, thank you.

          KATRIN777

oh! Great!

Cuc Duong

Guess I need more practice! Thank you Adam! Another helpful tips for taking TOEFL and IELTS.

Jaecee Sponge

I think that I need more examples for to practice before that I take the TOEFL test

cope144

    Hi Cope,

    Make sure you get yourself a good book with complete practice tests. It’s very useful.

    Adam

Yeah, I know how note taking’s important in a TOEFL test. As a Toefler, I appreciate your precious tip for note taking. :)

hawaiian66

Adam I’m still confused when I use (GO,WENT). In dictionary I can see two different meanings of these words(IT’S A SINGLE ACTION AND PLURAL ACTION). For instance: I WENT TO LOCAL SCHOOL means that I visited that school for some definite time in the past(but WENT in the dictionary means also a single action). Or must I say: IT WAS YESTERDAY. I DID GO TO LOCAL SCHOOL AT 8 O’CLOCK( or I HAD BEEN GOING TO LOCAL SCHOOL AT 8). SUDDENLY I SAW HIM. It’ll be great to
know more about that. Thank you.

KATRIN777

    The Google translator gives me that I WENT TO LOCAL SCHOOL is a single action in the past(in one day).
    I HAVE BEEN GOING TO SCHOOL also a single action in
    the past(but in the middle of action(at 8 o’clock for instance ).

    KATRIN777

      I WILL HAVE BEEN GOING TO THE LOCAL SCHOOL – is it means that I will visit that school every day for some period of time?

      KATRIN777

        Hi Katrin,

        I’m not sure what you mean by a single and plural actions. Verbs don’t take numbers really, except for their relation to the subject in the present tense(Jack goes, Jack and Jill go). The difference between went and have gone is definite and indefinite times in the past. Use went as the simple past (known time in the past) and have gone as a present perfect for the indefinite past (unknown time in the past). The future perfect (will have gone)suggests that an action will be completed by a known time in the future.

        Where did you go yesterday? I went to the local school yesterday.

        Where did you study as a kid? I went to a local school. (here ‘went’ is used to mean ‘attended’)

        Does this help at all?
        Both answers are correct for their context.

        Adam

          I’ll rewrite you Adam, just couldn’t explain it to you. Thank you.

          KATRIN777

I think it’s a little bit confusing when we have to use infinitives or (to + infinitives) after verbs. Could you help us by giving some tricks you probably know? Either you could make a lesson about this, or not; we all appreciate your time teaching us.
All the best to you!

albertejy

Hi Adam, My favorite teacher. You do a great job in every next video as usual. I am very thankful to the Engvid team for such a wonderful lessons that has made the language learning easier across the world. I wish i keep enjoying the lessons on Engvid.com

Yashwant Kumawat

this is really usefull thanx alot

mounir kabbani

Not bad)) Thanks, Adam!

AnuarUniverse

Great teacher… I took my first lesson today.

patrikza

Hi Adam. I’m not sure I can ask that kind of question here or in some other lesson. I mean does it depend on issue of lesson what I can ask) Anyway I wonder what’s the difference between “it doesn’t matter” and “it no matter”. In what case can I use one or another phrase. I hope I was totally clear. Sorry If I wasn’t.

Katrin Naito

    Hi Katrin,

    All questions are welcome :)

    It depends mostly on context. It doesn’t matter means something is not really important. It no matter is grammatically incorrect.
    No matter.., means regardless
    No matter what is an expression meaning regardless what happens.

    It’s not a matter of… means it’s not about …

    Does this help?

    Adam

      Thank you, Adam, it was quite helpful. Yes, I noticed my mistake “it no matter” is incorrect of course.
      It needs to to work with a little more, but I guess I got it.
      But could you please explain me one more thing about this issue? Why then M.Jackson sings “It DON’T matter if you’re black or white…”? (or I’m just misheard)

      Katrin Naito

        :)

        Song lyrics are probably the last place you want to learn grammar.

        Adam

One more question Adam! It looks easy, but what is actually difference between GOT(or British HAVE GOT) and HAVE. For instance: I GOT(HAVE GOT) a car. I HAVE a car.
I think I can’t say: I HAVE GOT a nose.

KATRIN777

    Or may be I can say: I’VE GOT my nose from my parents.

    KATRIN777

      So, when to use GOT(HAVE GOT) and when HAVE?
      Thank you very much.

      KATRIN777

        Hi Katrin,

        Both are OK. Some people think that have got is more formal than have, or it’s a matter of British vs. US English.

        It’s a personal choice.

        Using only ‘got’ to mean have got is grammatically incorrect, though you might hear it often amongst Americans.

        You got your nose from your parents. Not have got. Also in the perfect tense, some people use gotten.

        Does this help?

        Adam

          That’s clear Adam, thank you.

          KATRIN777

You are awesome..

shanthi547

i was not bad on this lesson 4-6

zaheed

Hi Adam,could you plz explain me the meanimg of “in terms of conversation” here is context. To be honest, i was scared we would be the only ones there with brooke, i mean she is fine in a group ,but after we have compared nail polish colour’s, thats’s it in terms of conversation.

fari.immy

and here’s the other one. A boy asked his friend; how did practice go? and his friend said it went well why did not you come. He replied, (I thought i would let you newbies settle in without feeling overshadowed by my superior skill.)I would like you to explain me the last one sentence in brackets.and also tell me the meaning of overshadowed.

fari.immy

I want to know the meanings of following words here.what does trippy, purge and nark on mean.

fari.immy

    Hi Fari,

    in terms of means speaking about… or in relation to.
    (If we speak about our conversation, it was about nail polish and that’s it)

    Newbies- new to something
    overshadowed- feel less than someone in terms of their power
    (I didn’t want to make you new guys feel bad because I am so much better than you so I let you settle in)
    trippy- weird, crazy, wild
    purge- get rid of something
    nark on- call the police and tell them you/someone have drugs

    :)

    Adam

Thanks everyone. Don’t worry if it was difficult. It takes practice and patience. It will come :)

Keep working hard.

Adam

Thank you so much Adam. I got it. it becomes easier to understand when you explain meanings of words and you explain very well. you are a Great teacher. I am so excited to find you.:)

Hello Alam, I’m going to take the TOEFL test in some weeks but I’m very nervous about it. I’m learning new vocabulary, I’m improving my listening and speaking skills, I’m learning advanced grammar and I bought some books about TOEFL test but I don’t feel still ready. what do you recommend me to do to get ready quicker (because the test will be in a couple of weeks) and what skill should I improve specially to get a high score? My thanks in advance for your answer :)

Melissa Corzo

Hi. First of all I am thank full for you tips for both exam, these are useful, but reality I have feeling worried to get codes, so it’s first time to see like them. I have special codes for me, but not like your exact codes. Therefore in the IELTS exam I am going to write my especial codes as I know. I don’t know if I can ? Could you tell please how I can learn like these (( your codes ))? Really I am upset now, is it important to know them??!!

Hi, Adam, I’m back! I had some health problems.

My little heart got angry..I needed a surgery.

But, now, I think I’ll get better with all the
medication I’ve been taking, and eating properly.
I’ve never smoked or drank alcoholic drinks in my life, that’s why everything came as surprise for me and my doctors.

Now, I can sit as long as I want to study my
beloved language: English. I might get a little
tired, eventually, but at least I can listen to
you and learn from your wonderful teaching.

I loved this lesson,but I didn’t do well.
As you said in your explanation, it’s paramount
to have my own code.

I hope you still remember me. I’m from Brazil and I’m taking a TOELF exam this coming September.

Thanks for everything,Adam.

Did I use the eventually word correctly???

Sonia1234

Correcting mistakes.

1)I’ve never smoked or DRUNK

2) I might get tired, at times/ now and then.

What do you think? I hope you read this!!!!!

And “paramount”? Should I have written “is of

I like your lecture about notetaking very much and it perfectly fits into my need for improving my TOEFL. At the the end of the lecture, you said that you will give more examples on engVid.com, but I have not found them yet. Could you tell me where I can get to look at those examples?

Hi Adam,greetings from El Salvador in Central America.

My question is: what is basically the difference between the different English exams? I mean, Why are there TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC and what are the strong points when you make that exams? I mean, one of them is more academyc and the other ones are more about daily speaking or what?

Adam, I have seen your videos for a while and I have done twice the TOEFL test (I need a 90 plus 24 on writing; I got first time 86 and second time 88), and still I have made the same mistakes! For me is hard to know how to write what I heard… What can I do? How can I practice this skill? Do you have any example of the task 1 or where I can go and so some search… Please!! Answer me or someone else, I really need and want to tackle the TOEFL!

Hi Adam! What is the best choice (TOEFL or IELTS) for a foreigner get a job in Canada or USA? I’d like to try some of these tests to obtain a professional VISA in the future (2 or 3 years).

I Adam! Thank so much for making this video.
I took the TOEFL a few months ago, which made me realise what my weaknesses are. I believe that my listening ability is the high level, but it comes to speaking and writing essays I am not very good at it.
I am planning on taking the TOEFL again soon because I really need to apply to college this year to finish my degree here in this country.
My question is, How long it will take me to improve my writing and my speaking skills to be able to pass this test?
Thank you so much and I will keep watching videos and taking notes because they really help.
