Hello Adam,
I got 90 . I need to review this lesson one more time to have the quiz perfect.
I considered taking TOEFL some years before and this lesson makes it comes again to my mind. I am going to work out.
Thanks Adam


    Integrating skills makes the writing task more challenging for test takers. But does this test really meassure what it claims to meassure?

    A mock exam would be of big help. It will help us to get more familiar with the test format and type of items;not to mention the development of all the necessary skills to cope with this part of the test.

    Useful tips Adam! They provide a clear picture of the TOEFL writing task.

    P.S. By the way, what does iBT stand for?

    Bye for now.


Hi dear Adam. Excellent and exceptional It was. I personally did know plentiful about that however you taught it magnificently. But may you please present a lesson about the third and four skills in TOEFL speaking they are somehow challenging and also make me anxious. Thank you for your humble teaching

ahmad pirouz

    Hi Ahmad, I’ll see what I can do ;)


      Thank you so much. It is really helpful. Is it wrong to use templates, which we see on youtube, for writing?


Thank you very much Adam. Although I don´t think about taking an official exam, it´s always a pleasure to listen to your explanations and tips :)


I got 10 correct out of 10. Thanks again, Adam!


Even that you’re speaking a little bit faster in this video, I can understand you perfectly, and that makes me glad :)
Your videos are helping me a lot.
Thank you so much!

Jess M

    faster? have you forgotten about James? hahaha
    I speeded up thls vldeo!!
    Practice, practice and practice!!


Hi Adam. Thanks for sharing this. You are an amazing teacher. I do have one question though. Can we talk about the main points of the lecture and the passage each in two separate paragraphs? I can’t thank you enough for everything!


    Hi Maisy,

    You can do this, but it is better to connect ideas from each together, that way the contrast or support is more immediate. It will also make it easier for you to structure the summary.

    Ultimately, as long as you cover all the main points and o it in a comprehensible way, you’ll be ok :)


Thank you so much Mr.Adam,and God bless you.

Bushra hg

Thank you

Isn’t easier but I get points to answer questions of TOEFL

Haytham Adil Aldai

I’ve done the TOEFL test once and I can state this is not easy, nevertheless tips like yours are not given on any preparatory course I’ve attended so I thank you so much for these videos because when I was taking the test with a lot of work to do in a quite short time I just could remember your tips, it was like you were whispering in my ears lool, thus I got a better grade than I was expecting. Thank you Adam and keep up with the great job!

Felipe Torres

    I’m glad to hear that Felipe. Thanks :)


What a super guiding lesson! Thank you so much teacher Adam. :)


I cannnot hear the audio for this section. How can I use it?


    There is only the video with me speaking :)


Hi Adam,
What is the easiest way to learn Synonyms and Antonyms? Could you please make a lesson about this?
Thank you
Thiago from Brasil


    I’ll get on it Learner ;)


Hi Adam, great lesson.
Could you make a lesson on difference between various, diverse, distinct and similar.
I’ve tried to read about them but I’m not sure I understand it completely.
Keep doing great work!


    I’ll get on that Valera :)


thank you very much…


thank you sir ..this is interesting lesson


I did not understand anything


    Watch it again Fawze. It just takes practice. Also, keep in mind that this is about the TOEFL test, so if you don’t know this test, this lesson might be a little difficult.


hi adam
you’re speaking faster mr adam please speak slowly for better understand thank you

imane haddad

    Hi Imane,

    As I mentioned at the beginning of the video, I speak faster in the lessons for TOEFL and IELTS to give people practice for what they will hear on the test. Usually, I don’t speak this fast. :)


Thank you Adam.


hi Adam
I suggest you to make engVid telegram channel and upload all the videos there because in Iran we don’t have access to youtube :(
any way a telegram channel is an excellent way of sharing!
have fun ;)


    I’ll pass that idea on Hossein. Thanks :)


Thanks Adam for this very elaborate lesson!

Someday I will try the Toefl test. I think this will be a good method to use in the writing section.

Fabio Cicerre

Hi Adam.
I have a question.
please tell me the meaning of below words.
please help me Adam.


    And I’ll be happy if you help(tell) me how I can improve my English speaking.
    Actually, how can I improve my English speaking?


      And I want to get TOEFL license A.S.A.P, Any suggestion?


    Hi Mark,
    irony:noun– when the opposite of what was intended occurs
    sarcasm: noun- saying the opposite of what you mean in order to emphasize it
    sarcastic: adjective
    figurative: not the meaning the words suggest
    literally: exactly as the words suggest
    disapproving: not approving
    pejorative: putting something or someone down
    derogatory:- insulting, or putting someone down

    Type into Google:
    Use _____ in a sentence— this will show you examples.

    Hope this helps.


thank you Adam.


Hi, I should take the class again. I failed the quiz.


    You can try as many times as you need to Ishaja :)


    Lol. I’ll see what I can do. That’s a funny video, though most of the misunderstandings can’t be explained here I’m afraid ;)


      Thank you for your answer. I watched the whole movie https://youtu.be/LRvb5dPLhso, there are a lot of such situations, that could be add to a video and explained, what was said, what should be said and how…


        Thanks for the link Roman!(it’s funny) I think you can like something like this with Canadian accent – “The Grand Seduction” 2013.


        The problem with this video, Roman, is that many of the expression are sexual in nature and so I can’t really put them up here. I’ll make an expressions video soon though :)


Thank you very much Adam. I got 90 points in the quiz. I am going to take TOEFL exam only 13 days later. That’s why I feel more appreciated. I am looking forward to hearing from you a new lessons about TOEFL. This video has several beneficial tips.
You are a great teacher.Thank you again!


Hi Adam! How are you doing? I’ve a question. Could you help me?
– What’s the difference between WALK IT OUT and WALK?
(If I say to somebody WALK IT OUT and other time just WALK will be there any difference?)Which is used commonly in America?
Thank you!


Sorry! Two more!
1 Is there any difference in meaning between:
A. I came yesterday.
B. I had been coming yesterday.

2 Which is right:
A. I have worked at the factory for 20 years.
B. I have been working at the factory for 20 years.
(Which is more grammatically correct?)
Thank you! Bye!


    In textbooks more commonly used “I have worked at the factory for 20 years”, “I have played football for 2 hours” but I think there should be I HAVE BEEN ….


    Hi Katrin,

    I’m not familiar with walk it out, actually. I know walk it off means walk to relieve the pain in your leg or to calm down.

    A. I came yesterday.–correct
    B. I had been coming yesterday.–incorrect (come is not a continuous action)

    A. I have worked at the factory for 20 years.
    B. I have been working at the factory for 20 years

    both are correct and acceptable. If you want to make sure the listener knows you are still working there, use B


you are the best Adam :)


Dear Adam,
Thank you very much for your vivid explanation.


By the way, I got 10 out of 10 ;)


hello Mr. Adam , thank you so much for the info that you’re providing .. I’m really interested in what you’re doing ..

rami rh

Thanks, Adam.
But I want to ask ‘lots’ and ‘a lot’ what is the difference?


    Hi Sophie,

    Essentially, nothing. Both can be used interchangeably, though lots is more informal than a lot.


I got 90 point in this quiz.What do you guys think abouyt my point?If you don’t mind I would like you to connect me and share experiences which is related in all respects.Please contact me. See uu :)


Good morning Adam sir. i studied your all classes. I will certainly hug with you if i will meet.




Your comment is waiting to be approved by engVid.


thank you and this is very helpful. but what if the terminology is confusing me like medical words?


    Hi Yooniesta,

    Don’t worry too much about the technical words. They do not expect you to know them, and will only use common ones (like influenza) if they want you to include it.


Thank you everyone :)


Thank you Adam


Hi Adam can we take a short video call by Skype?


    Hi Tamir,

    If you have any questions for me, this is a good place to ask :)


I am so surprised,10/10.) Maybe I don’t confident in my opportunities. Thank you Adam very much!


I got 5 correct out of 10.


I haven’t try it yet.

Fedorovsky Arthur

    Sorry, I haven’t tried it yet.

Charaf Edd

Thanks sir


Hello Mr. Adam,
A Plenty of thanks for brilliant videos you prepare and publish here. Nowadays I’m preparing myself to get TOFEL internet based test, but I don’t know which kind of accents is better to be followed and speak accordingly (American accent of British accent)? or dose accent has a specific role in order to get more score?

Best wishes
Hasib Nasir

Hasib Nasir

    Hi Hasib,

    On the TOEFL you’ll here more North American accents in the listening section, though they are trying to be more global now. On the IELTS you’d hear more British and Australian.


In quiz, I got 9 of 10.

Hasib Nasir



9/10. Thank you teacher.


I want to ask
“sth might prove difficult.” is it correct?
If it is correct, why don’t we use passive voice “might be proved difficult”?


    Hi Sophie,

    It’s not about someone proving something, it’s about something proving itself (to be) difficult.

    Does this help?


I’m so grateful your help.
You help me a lot.
Thanks a million.


    I’m so grateful for your help.


hi adam

Mustapha Bin Adam

Hi Adam, I hope you are doing well. Please, would you tell me how would it possible to listen to the lecturer to response to the quiz? Thank you for all your videos are very interesting and useful to prepare TOEFL test or just to improve English.


Ok, I got it! I thought that I have to listen to another video to respond to the quiz. I got 9/10 because I didn’t answer to the first question. :)


You are probably the best lecturer with the clearest ideas in the site.
you made TOEFL seems easy, i think i will get my try, if it is as easy as this i’m gonna make it.
thanks for you and other lecturers as well.


Hello Adam! Thanks for this usefull video. I will take TOEFL soon and I want to know if is there a word counter on the screen or do I have to count words myself? Thanks in advance for your help.


Thanks Adam. I made 9/10 in my very first attempt! Ever since I found your webclasses on youtube I can feel my english has improved substantially.

Guilherme Cota

Hi Adam this Navneet.I am planning on taking TOEFL test some time in August so I can take admission in university coming fall.Bit problem is TOEFL test.I am scarred to take TOEFL.is there more study material or help that you can help me with I enjoy watching TOEFL related videos.


you are a good teacher Adam, thank you .
for me all your lessons are beneficial and helpful .
thanks again


Hi Adam, in your video you said that each paragraph should have a topic sentence, an explanation of that sentence and an example. I couldn’t understand the word “example”. Will I have to use an example of my own to support the idea or does it have to be from the passage?


Hello Adam, I want you to know that you are my real teacher :) I told everybody that my english teacher is Adam, I don’t know where is he from, but he is the best teacher I can ever see :)


Hi Adam, my english too bad, help..


Hello Adam. Thank you so much for your tips about TOEFL Integrated writing task. Though I am a bit confused. I follow TOEFLtv (a youtube channel) and there they advise you to write a conclusion statement at the end of your summary. Here, however, you recommend us not to do so. Please, can you help me with this doubt? That you so so much


Hi Adam. I have been practicing to take the TOEFL test.
I have watched one of your video where you have shared ideas on how to aproach the writing task #1. Is there a way to see one full answer about the writing task#1 that has gotten a score of 5. I would love to see one because I am visual learner. Thnaks so much for your time and all the excellent tips on that video I watched.


Hi dear Adam.Thans for your this video.I think you can give us very important points that we should do.


thank you so much teacher Adam.This is really helpful

Asmaa Naciri

Greetings Adem, I need a favour from you. I suppose I wouldn’t cause you much of a trouble but I wrote a short story, a humorous one and I want you to read it and reflect your ideas. Does that sound feasible?

Nathen Sol

Hi Adam! I have been watching your videos for years,and I have learnt alot from you. Thank you!!!
May I ask a have a question. I am confused about writing essays. My teacher said that it’s cheating


Hi Adam! I have been watching your videos for year, and I have leanrt a lot from you. Thank you!!! May I ask a question? I am confused about writing essays. My teacher said it is considered as cheating if I use the sentence from my resource. I was told, I have to read the article and then write an essay with my own word. But how about facts that is given in the article? If I read the article and write essay about that topic it’s still going to be the same. I hope I was able to expain what I mean. If you can can you please make a video about that. What can I use from my source and what I can’t.


ı took toefl exam and the result ı had was 79 , whıch was really upsettıng . however , ı dıd not study for the exam . ıf ı had studıed ıt properly , would ı have gotten more poınt .


Dear Sir Adam,
I have encountered some problems whilst completing the writing task 1:
1)I have acquired the topic sentences for each body paragraph. However there are points from both reading and listening. Which should I mention first?
2)Do I have to you flow bridges like “firsly, lastly”?
Anyway, yr guidance and tips are really helpful and appreciated your sharing of skills. Thank you.


Hello Adam,

Thank you for your wonderful lessons, but I have a question, I have watched most of your videos about writing. But if I do practice for writing an essay or paragraph, I can not check it by myself, as I am doing self study so internet is the only way to get help,although I have internet as help but still it can not check my essay or paragraph so kindly tell me any solution of this problem ?


Thank you Mr. Adam!
Great explanation.
I’m preparing for a TOEFL iBT test here in Kabul-Afghanistan at PDI section of American University.
Your lesson would help me as long as I read the comments of other audiences.

Karim Khan Wardak

amazing, all details became broken down for me, but i have one question what grammar structure you advise us to use in this task???

basel mac

hi Adam,
i m preparing for toefl exam by myself and i really liked your lesson but could you send me an example of writting task 1 of toefl exam? i would like to sse it because it will help me a lot to write any of my own.
thanks :)


How to get to the listening?


Hi Adam!

Great video! I’ve seen it more than 10 time by now.

Plus, i was wondering if you could help me with a concern i have on it. Look, I’m preparing myself to take the TOEFL, and got the “official Guide” from the online site. However, you mention that we must not leave a conclusion or summary paragraph, but the guide mention the opposite. Could you help me to understand it better?

Emanuel Mtz

Hi adam can you explain me the use of this ‘his or her’ versus ‘their’ in neutral gender?

Using “their” is this ungrammatical ?
thank you

the best

Hi Adam! I’m really confused about one of the rules you mentioned in the video. You mentioned that personal pronouns should not be used. I understand not using personal pronouns like I, me, mine etc. But wouldn’t it sound a bit awkward not using he/she while referring to ” The author” or ” The lecturer”?. Please help me with this.


hello everyone.I am trying to find the video for this quiz but I am not getting.Please tell me where I can find it?

SudhaPriya shrivastava

Creative lesson Mr. Adam! Thank you very much!


Hi! I really like your lessons.
Would you like to tell me what are the most common writing and reading topics for TOEFL IBT?
Thank you.


thank you so so much

Abdulrashed Hasan

Thanks a lot for the wonderful tips, Adam.


is there any website that has volunteers to review my writing for free ?


Hello Adam! This video is really useful for us. And i actually want to read more your sample essays to understand more and compare with mine. How can i find it in this site. Can you help me, please? Thanks a lot


An excellent explanation about task 1 of writing. Such valuable information can easily boost the chance of exam participants to pass the question well.


Thank u teacher I scored 90% that gives a great pleasure

Nur muhumed

Hi Adam , I couldn’t understand when you talk about counter and support in Task 1 writing explanation. You said “it’s gonna be one of those two things” What are refering to? Thank you!!!


Yes! I got 100 UwU


Thank you teacher you are the best of the best! English is easy and funny with you!


Hi, respected sir. Hope you are safe and sound. You are such a terrific teacher I have ever had. Thanks a million for helping us to learn this international language very easily. I have watched all your videos; they are really helpful.

Naseer Ahmed Aryen

Hi Adam,
With A Little Help From Adam…
Would you consider making a video about the verb “to help”. It seems to be used in a variety of patterns that I have honestly lost confidence as to which one is correct: (a) I need help filling in the form (b) can you help me (to?) fill in the form? (c) I can’t help loving you – this I got correct, I bet :) (d) the new automated assistant could help you in/at filling in the form, or: to fill in the form. (e) may I help you with another helping of tiramisu? (one too many?).
Thanks, Artur


hi haw are you


Hi Adam,
I would like to thank you for your humble and great help over this lesson. You inspire people by the way you teach and help us all. For that! thank you!
