Great, fantastic lesson, but Adam, you wrote all words in capital letters. For my understanding is as you were yelling, crying , hight voice or something like that. Sorry about that but again excellent 20 minutes.

Pedrop Guijarrog

    Hi Pedrop,

    Thank you :)

    Actually, we received comments that block letters are easier to see on YouTube. Most videos will be like this now.

    Just imagine me always calm ;)

    Adam

Why do not schools study the soft skills? Because the school’s teachers did not learn the soft skills…

Bitaly

    Hi Bitaly,

    That might be part of it, but modern education is about results (i.e. tests), so they do not spend time on these things. It’s too bad.

    Adam

John was an oppressive boss at his work. He always wanted everyone to ask him for a permission. He would not listen to people actively. When they began to speak for example, he always would think what he would say next and interrupt them frequently. No one would see any gestures on his face while he was talking or listening to anyone. He would look like a robot for this reason. If someone told him about something with the best of intentions, he would always take them the wrong way. He would yell and scream at them. Worst if something went wrong, he always got angry easily instead of focusing on how to solve. Employees would usually feel miserable because there was no flexibility, creativity, vitality, motivation, and innovation at work. So, they generally would drop out of the job. The rest was the people who had to work with him because they could not find a better work. He could not interpret this situation correctly. He would always think that the people who left did not like working and they were lazy. One-day John saw a beautiful girl named Susan. He felt drawn to her immediately. On the first date Susan realised what a difficult man he was and then she ran away from him without looking back. John tried to look at himself out-of-the box to understand her behaviour. Finally, he told himself “it would figure she did not have enough capacity to date me”.

Thanks Adam !

I enjoyed this lesson from an English teacher psychologist. It is a good method to learn English and the behavior at the same time.
Thanks Adam.

Note: I needed to look up for the meaning of STFU because I had no idea about what those letters stood for ;)

knopfler86

    I think it means shut up and it’s not very polite

I am improving my writing skills but there is no one to check my essay or any other writing material. I want an English teacher who could correct me and give suggestions and advice. what to do now?

binni

    Hi Binnin,

    I offer this service on my website, writetotop.com for IELTS and TOEFL writing.

    If you can find a local tutor, though, that would be best.

    Adam

Hi Adam
First, I have to thank you and engvid.com for such sincere and helpful efforts.
In fact, it happens that I have seen a lesson for you since several months ago has the title of; ideology.
And because I follow special rituals before starting to listen for the English lessons to avoid any sort of disturbance or interruption and have a clear mind, I postponed listening to that lesson. But when I became ready to listen I didn’t find it.
SO, could you return it so that we can benefit from it like all your gorgeous lessons on this site, and all the lessons of this unique site in general.
Best regards.

Msgdy Alhaddad

    Hi Msgdy,

    I’m not too sure that would be the title. It seems a bit too general. Do you remember what it was supposed to be about?

    Adam

      Abou politics, I would say .
      Thank you anyway for your answer.

Hello my best teacher.could you please lecture on the hard skill?

Musa kenneh

    Hi Musa,

    Hard skills are technical skills that can be learned and practiced in whatever area you’re working. There are endless hard skills, including English speaking and writing. This website is full of these lessons.

    Is this what you meant?

    Adam

Great lesson, it is very important for any person who works or wants to work in a business organization.

There are still many technical hurdles to making the digital and physical worlds work together.how should i understand the form of “to making” in this setence,thak you

AnderEvanseeee

    Hi AnderEvanseeee,

    hurdle to something.

    In this case something = making the digital and physical worlds work together.

    making is a gerund, not a verb in this example.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thanks Adam. You’re a really good teacher

“The existing ones are partial studies with commentaries on individual critic, an amalgam of critic and critical opinion ”

Sir in the above sentence ” amalgam of critic and critical opinion ” what is this phrase?
Is it subjective complement or an object of “on”please tell me. I am always confused about these kind of sentences.

Please tell me any trick how should I know that it is subjective complement or an object of preposition

jadhavsagar

    Hi Jadhavsagar,

    This is a bit difficult because the phrase ‘an amalgam’ suggests this is another way of looking at something. The problem here is that there is no singular item before this phrase to refer to.

    critic is singular, but it should have an article (an individual critic)or be plural(individual critics).
    If the sentence were written like this:
    “The existing ones are partial studies with commentaries on individual critics, amalgams of critic and critical opinion”–amalgams would then refer to the type of commentaries.

    In this case, the phrase would would be a reduced adjective clause (which can be seen as amalgams…) but because it follows a different noun, using the full clause would be confusing.

    Does this help?

    Adam

9/10! Thanks, Adam! This lesson is useful for me.
I have a team to lead, these good tips can help me working well.
