compound adjectives. These are adjectives built of more than one word. You’ll see common examples that you can use, and learn how to write them correctly. I’ll also teach you how to avoid a common error that many English learners make, so that you can write correctly and confidently. Impress your friends, co-workers, and teachers by using compound adjectives. Want to practice what you’ve learned? Do the exercises on engVid!
Hi! I like your videos. Thank you so much and see you )))
I wanted to sound a bit smarter this morning Rebecca. So while surfing on the net I ran across your video lesson. Thus, the next thing I did was to watch it.

Thanks Rebecca, this lesson was great and easy to understand..:)
Thank my best teacher, and I have a question why did you spill a number in question ( 3,7 and 9) when it was over ten? why did not you writ a number?
SOM3A, it’s a general suggestion and shortcut you can use, but you don’t have to write in numbers all the time. It also depends what style your company prefers.Thanks for paying attention so well! I wish you all the best.

You guys doing amazing work, helping my kind of poors to grow in life. Thanks you so much!
Thank you!!! 9/9
100%, thank you for your help
Hi Teacher, you deserve that big recognition; Great lesson, kind of advanced, but easy explained with all the basics, some of your co-workers avoid the basics or reference to past lessons that not help at the moment; One improve idea may you like to take or talk with the website administrator/owner is to re-make the old lessons, the bad think with this lessons is the sound, sound like was recorded inside a box, is kind of annoying comparing with the new lesson records, and don’t forget to delete the old versions.
Eduardom49, thanks so much for your very kind and thoughtful comments. We are, in fact, re-recording some of our earlier videos. I hope you made progress with the essay part of the exam you had mentioned last time. May your improved English help you achieve your highest goals. My warm wishes to you, Eduardo.

Nothing in life is so hard that you can’t make it easier by the way you teach it
That´s is my quote
Thank you kindly for these insightful comments, PacoBe. I totally agree with you and think you are quite remarkable, by the way! All the best, my friend.
Thank you, Rebecca… I love your classes … You are full-package teacher ;)
That’s creative! Thanks for the feedback, NLucas! I wish you all the best.
thanks for the lesson, it’s very importan tips !!
Thank you very much Rebecca! You always make things easier to understand.
Thanks so much, Frances2. I try my best to do that. I really appreciate your feedback. My best wishes to you.
No one likes YOU!
Yurei78, I think you wanted to say:
There’s no-one like you.
No-one like you!
In this case, if you add the “s” to the word “likes”, it means that no-one cares about you. I think you didn’t mean that, but if you did, then that’s fine too! I wish you all the best.
Hi. Why don’t I need hyphens in “Seven Mile Bridge”?
Technically, you do need a hyphen. They forgot.
Glad you know better now! All the best to you.
100\100 thanks teacher
THATS FENOMENAL!!! its completly information…. nice ill hope learn a little bit more!!–
Rebecca, you are really a very very good teacher! I love your way of teaching.
Thank you kindly, eugeneraf. A big compliment from someone who has done so much learning to become a surgeon himself. I wish you all the best.
you are welcome. Really you are a very good teacher and you help us a lot. I have just a question, by curiosity how did you know that I am a surgeon because it is no mentioned in my profile? Thank you again
Thanks Rebecca, this lesson is very useful….!!!
thanks a lot
Thank you teacher!
Thanks for the wonderful lesson.
i got 100 thank you.
Thank you :)
Thank you very much teacher. T้his lesson is nice and clear for me.
the lessons was great
can anyone explain me question 3 7 and 9
You are concerned because the answers are written in words, instead of numbers. Please see my reply to SOM3A above. Writing in numbers is a stylistic option, not a rule. All the best to you, xirin4u.com.
It has been a review lesson about compound adjectives, a basic topic that it’s easy to fail or mistake it you forget the rule of dropping the “-s” and writing the hyphen, that it is also a very common error when you haven’t often practised them, it’s a normal situation to change compound adjective by other words in the sentences. Thanks a lot, teacher Rebecca, without your advice and aid, it would be more complicated to learn English grammar, this video class has been very useful as always.
Thanks for your generous feedback, angardiobel. Much appreciated. I wish you all the best.
Thank you very much teacher.
Thank you very much teacher.
Hi, your lessons are very helpful & wealthy which is making me to watch more and more videos, thank you.

Thank you so much for sharing this precious knowledge.
May I suggest something, it is possible to put a number to the videos. It would help a lot to find one, there are so many right now. You are wonderful.Thanks.
Thanks for your kind words and feedback. I will pass on your suggestion. Are you a fan of King Crimson? They had some beautiful songs, back in the day! I wish you all the best, my friend.
Thanks for your answer. Yes, I love KC specially the old songs in the ’70. Thanks again Rebecca, the best for you.
My thanks to all of you for your kind and useful feedback. It always means a lot to hear from you. Sorry I cannot reply to each one, but I do read every comment and appreciate the sentiments and suggestions. Telling your friends and teachers about engvid, and subscribing to my youtube channel, would also help a lot, so we can continue to make new lessons. Thanks again.
By the way, some of our viewers wrote “Thank’s”. Please note we do not need the apostrophe in this word. Just make your life easier and write “thanks”!

Hi Rebecca, I love your lessons thx! I have a doubt about one of the questions of the quiz: you wrote “You have to watch it all! It’s a __________ series.” the verb and the subject are singular… why did you use serieS with the plural??? I hope it was clear!!
Hi! I’m not Rebecca…but “series” is the singular and plural! It’s a bit confusing.
Rebecca , the way you motivate students is applaudable.keep it up.
Loved the lesson,Ms. Rebecca.Very important subject.

Hi Rebecca, I just want to address your example sentence about compound adjectives which is ‘the conference was three days long.’ You changed it to, “it was a three-day conference.’ I was wondering if we could possibly include the word ‘long’ in the compound adjectives so we could write instead, “it was a three-day-long conference.” is that possible or is there a certain rule about it? Thank you!
thank you Rebecca
