      hi ahain dear adam

      I’d like you to make us a lesson on what is the difference between
      Difference between Time is up and time is over?
      and also “0h vs Zero”
      when we pronounce zero and when we pronounce “oh.”

      may thanks in advance

      Profile photo of nino31 nino31

        Hi Nino,

        ‘Oh’ is just slang for zero. For example, i live in apartment 501, or five oh one. It’s just easier to say. When we tell time, though, we usually use oh, such as 1:05, One oh five. we generally don’t use zero in telling time.

        As for time’s up vs. time’s over: time’s up is when you are given an set amount of time to do something, like a test. When the clock hits zero, time is up (ie. it is used up). When a person’s time is over, it means his turn is over, finished. It’s the next person’s turn.

        Does that help?

          Hi Adam.

          I don’t think that it’s a correct sentence.
          7. Some people live every day LIKE there is no tomorrow.

          In this case LIKE is a preposition (followed by noun, not clause).

          Thanks :)

Don’t know how but I did 100%. Thanks for the lesson :-)


you are a very pleasnt and an informative teacher. I like following your teaching in a very relaxed mood of enjoyment. Though I have been living in Cambridge,in the UK,for nearly 44 years,but English being my second language,I still have many gaps to fill when it comes to these various rules in the grammer and also in the everyday conversational phrases. In short…I do enjoy following up your lessons from time to time. I am actually from Turkey(Turkiye). All the best!!

first of all I would like to thank ENG VID very much .You are really helpful ,go on and keep the great job .my question here sir if please tell me the difference between the gerund and the noun .I think there is no difference .finally thanks a lot

haitham sakr

    Hi Haitham,

    A gerund is an -ing verb that is used as a noun. For example, Smoking is bad for you. Smoking is a gerund that means the act of smoking.

    Does that help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam



mr. adam your lesson is very good.
thanks for you.


Really the lesson I was waiting for. I always have problems about the difference between live (verb) and live (adjective) in the pronunciation. I always pronunciate windows live as a verb.


Thank you sir, you know it’s my first time and because of your nice lesson I got perfect score in your quiz. Thanks!

Ar Jie

I’ve seen too many The Walking Dead, and I have no problems with distinguishing live, live, life, alive, living. xD

But I have, actually, three short sentences to discuss.

“Don’t everybody speak at once.” — I heard this in Breaking Bad, and I understand it well despite that the subject doesn’t match the verb, but this isn’t the main problem I’m dealing with. Another example: “Don’t you dare look at him in the eye”. Why the word order in those sentences looks like the word order in a question? For example: “Don’t you have better things to do?” I saw some sentences like those, and I started to wonder why is that. :)

The second one is: “I’m done.” I usually hear it from a person whose job is finished. For example:
— I’m cleaning a window.
30 min. later…
— I’m done.

I would say that the window or the activity “is done” because of passive, and we are the person who cleans the window. So, why do we use passive here? Why “I’m done.”? Shouldn’t it be “I’ve done…” or something?

Profile photo of morfik morfik

    I’ll throw in my 2 cents.
    “Don’t everybody speak at once” is a phrase in the imperative mood. You use the imperative mood of a verb (the infinitive form of the verb – without to – is used for all persons) to express command, entreaty, appeal, prayer, advice, exhortation, etc.
    “Don’t dream it, be it” from the Rocky Horror (Picture) Show is a classical example. I always ask to try translating that in Italian, and the results are very funny!
    As for ‘done’, it’s an adjective.

    Profile photo of Mauro Mauro

      I think that it is what I’m looking for. — http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperative_mood#English

      As to “done”, ok, this is “do” in pp, acting like an adjective, but this is, I don’t know how to describe it, passive adjective? xD It describes us when we say “I’m done”, or if we say “Job’s finished” — the word “finished” describes “job”. And I’m wonder why, when we talk about job, we use “I’m done”.

      Look at this: If I am a corrupt politician and someone finds this out, he can blackmail me, and when I don’t want to cooperate with him, he can say “You’re done”, and this means that I probably go to prison. xD Am I right, or am I confused something?

      Profile photo of morfik morfik

        My other 2 cents.
        I don’t think Internet (including myself) is a good primary source for information when someone is studying a (foreign) language. My advice is: get good grammar books (in paper)!
        ‘Done’ is an adjective (please check its meaning on good dictionaries – Hope this doesn’t sound rude to you – sorry). Maybe in your language the pp of ‘do’ (‘done’) is used similarly in such cases, maybe you use ‘finished’ instead, or whatever. Check this: “It’s a done deed, and it can’t be undone (neglected)”; and also: “Have you finished eating your breakfast? – Yes, but I’m not finished, I’d like some more pastries!”.

        Profile photo of Mauro Mauro

          This is from a site that I’ve been learning English grammar:

          “There are three main uses for past participles in English:

          1. Perfect Tenses – I have broken my arm.
          2. Adjectives: My window is broken.
          3. The Passive Voice: My window was broken by that boy with the rock.

          Once, I asked Adam about similar thing, and he said something about “participial adjectives”.

          And I disagree when you say that internet is a bad source of information, especially when you learn foreign language. You should really go sometimes to forum.wordreference.com

          Profile photo of morfik morfik

        Hi Morfik,

        First, Mauro made a good point about the imperative. Don’t (you) dare do it! is an imperative with the added (though unnecessary) subject added for emphasis. It’s more a stylistic tool than a grammar rule. You’ll find English allows a lot of rule-bending for the sake of style.

        Which leads to the second point. ‘Done’ used in this sense, suggests finished. Even if i tell the politician he is done, I mean he is finished (doing the things he does because I will end his ability to continue). Again, more about style than grammar.

        When I finish a long, hard piece of, work, I sometimes say ‘I’m done like dinner,’ or ‘stick a fork in me, I’m done’

Profile photo of aboo253 aboo253

    Hi Aboo,

    From Meriam Webster’s dictionary:

    Although occasionally still disapproved, providing is as well established as a conjunction as provided is. Provided is more common.

    In other words, both have the same meaning and are correct. Provided is just more commonly used.

I gotta a question. If u said that if something was recorded u can’t say “Live”, it means that something was sent to the store to the fans buy it, so why i usually see on dvds I buy: “Live in London”, “Live in Las Vegas”, “Live in Rio”….? Thanx, i love your lessons!!! =)

Profile photo of RoSena RoSena

    Hi Angelroses,

    Excellent question :)

    Most albums are recorded in a studio with a lot of technical help and effects to “clean up” the music. When an album is recorded live, it means they record the concert, without the “clean up,” so it’s more natural.

    Does that help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Yes a lot, now i’m 100%, thank you so much =)

If you live each day as it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.

Hello Adam!

I like your lessons!
Could you explain to me why you said “I started LIVING in the apartment building 3 months ago” instead of “… TO LIVE …”. When should I use the infinitive and the gerund after verbs “start”, “begin”, “keep” “keep on”, “go on”, “go ahead”, “continue”, “finish”, “stop”.

Adam, thank you for your lesson.
I’m still confused. If I tell about my 90 years old grandpa, what should I say? “He is still alive” or “he is still live” or “he is still living”?


    “He is still alive”
    is it evident,, it`s the best one of`em

    Profile photo of hisham77 hisham77

    Hi Orangelass,

    He is still alive is best, but He is still living is correct as well. Different use of the ‘is’ verbs here. One is the main verb, the other is a helping verb.

    Does that help?

Adam,I have a question.Could you tell me about past participle (Third form of the verb)I know according to grammar past participle gets used

1-in perfect tenses
2-in Passive voice
3-as a adjective

But in the following structure,I am not able to get that in what sense past participle is getting used.

Here are examples.

1-Get started (Why past participle is getting used after get)

2-Get itemized
3-Get organized

and other examples like that

Please,if you make me clear this,I would really appreciate it.

Kinds Regards,


    I learn American English mostly, and I can tell you that Americans often use “get” instead of “be” in passive voice and both are acceptable. I don’t know why, maybe “get” is more modern or something. Look at these example:

    “The dog gets fed every morning.”
    “The dog is fed every morning.”

    and negative:

    “The dog doesn’t get fed every morning.”
    “The dog isn’t fed every morning.”

    Profile photo of morfik morfik

    as far as I comprehend your question :
    here`s the thing ,,
    with “get” there is a rule
    1- get + adjective
    e.g. I`m getting hungry . let`s eat soon
    get gives the idea the idea of change , the idea of becoming or the idea of beginning .
    in the example it means that I wasn`t hunger before , but now I`m beginning hungry .
    2- get + past participle ^ this is what you asking for ^
    e.g. I stopped working because I got tried

    get may also followed by past participle . the past participle function as an adjective it describes the subject .
    another examples :
    get drunk ,, get sunbrunt ,, get engaged ,,get arrested … etc.

    Profile photo of hisham77 hisham77

    Hi Farooq,

    Morfik and Hisham gave good answers. But at the end of the day, you must realize that Americans have their own sense of the language (as do Canadians, Brits, Aussies, etc). American English tends to favor brevity, ie. the shorter the better. ‘Get’ is often used instead of ‘become’ + p.p.(where the p.p. is used as an adjective) because it’s shorter.

    Does that help?

Hi Adam! Thanks for lessons. I believe You are the Best. Could you make a lesson, in which, would be very simple explanation about using “have,had,had had,have have,had have,have had etc” and what exactly that sentence would mean(in books one can’t find, what exactly mean using “had had” ). Thank you so much!


    Hi Ruslan,

    Had had is the past perfect form of the verb Have. I’ll see if I can make a specific lesson for that.

Hi Adam! Thx for you lesson. I try to read a lot as I can and after your lesson I cought up myself I read ‘live’ (adj) in wrong way. Almost all things are clear except for one. Could you please make me clear is any difference between alive and living?
Many thanks for you videos and for you answer in advance.


thanks,teacher adam


I liked the lesson! Thank you! ^^ It’s all okay, but I didn’t understand ” live ” as an adjective. I heard that sometime in the past with the words about concerts, but in general I don’t understand what that means :(

Profile photo of anins anins

2annis: You should just catch the difference between live and alive. It can be used live when you want to relate to, for example, concert record. It means that record wasn’t done in audio studio. It was concert somewhere on the scene for instance and someone did the record. ‘Alive’ usually uses for living beings so you can’t use it for the previous situation.

Would you be so kind to explain the following meaning of “live”, which I’ve found in BBC article: “One of the ways in which we can understand better is to look at other losses in our lives, each of which requires a period of adjustment.”
Thank you in advance,

Hi!sir, if ‘not only’ should be followed by ‘but also’, why in some cases they use ‘but’ alone, leaving the term ‘also’

Is there anyone else here from Thailand?
I come from Thialand.
I live in Bangkok.
I’ve been living here for a year,but I didn’t feel like home.
Livging in Bangkok it’s not easy.
I always have problems,but it wasn’t too bad.
Even though I have many problems,I still alive.
So that makes me realize how lucky am I. Life is not easy for everybody,but nothing lasts forever.

My English is very bad I knew it,but I’ll try harder. I came to this site because I would like to learn more and improve a grammar.
For Thai people are not easy to be native speakers. Thai is very different and all opposite from English.
I think I made right decition to came here because your lessons are very useful.

Thank you.

Adam, if you don’t like the life in Canada, come to the south of China. It’s warm here. We have sunshine almost all around the year. But this year it was much colder in winter. So just come here when there is a chance. The tasty food can satisfy you.

Dear Adam,
I am using these words below and be confused by them. They are cooperation and collaboration.
I have looked up in the English dictionary and I found that the meaning of these words is similar.
However, I am still confused with and I don’t know which one is correct to use in the sentence: “We want to cooperate with you in the coming time”.
Which one is better to use?
Could you please explain the difference between the words?
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you very much!

these are many ways how to express an one word with different meaning live,alive. living,life,live i guess we can use them with no problem because the teacher could explain us clearly he was to the point directly.

First of all I really want to say thank you for a great jod you’re doing! It’s very easy to listen and understand what you talk about! But I got confused with two words in this lesson, living and alive. If I point to any creatute which actually alive how should I say? It’s a living or it’s alive, because I used to was sure that alive, but you did say living..
