Thank you Adam for your interesting and very good explanation.
Although I’m an intermediate student, I learned a couple of new vocabularies in this lesson. Terrific!!! :)

Tuesday, February 6th 2018

    Hi Adam! I don’t want to teach you but are you sure you can use the word “vocabularies” in that case?

    Tuesday, February 6th 2018

      “I learned a couple of new vocabularies…” sounds strange to me too.

      I think it is better to say:
      “I have learned a couple of new words in this lesson.”

      Or maybe:
      “I have extended my vocabulary.”

      By the way, “I learned” is Past Simple Tense, I think it is better to use Present Perfect in this case “I have learned…”, because lesson has effect on your knowledge and it happened not too long ago.

      Also “couple of” strictly means two. Maybe better use “few”.

Thank you Adam !

Interesting lesson as always but I think you’re wrong about nordic combined. As far as I know nordic combined is both cross-country and ski-jumping, not alpine.

Hi Adam! Thank you for your lesson it was very informative but I have one point to say and I don’t want to be annoying, you forgot to say about Russia as a hockey country, we have a lot of achievements in this kind of sport equal with Canada, but you said about Sweden,Finland and so on, I hope its not some kind of discrimination from your side as we have today in side my Country, I hope its not in your case, thanks for lesson Adam.

    Russia is great at hokey. I don’t think Adam involved ‘politics’ in this case. He just pointed out few of the countries.

    Wednesday, February 7th 2018

      Ok) I don’t like to talk about politics but today we are all involved in my country in this ugly situation which was initiated by Canada with USA direct order, that is why for us its disgusting, to get rid of strong sport country in this way makes me a little bit suspicious, sorry but truth is always on surface.

        Russia is not a winter country.
        (say thanks that Russian team are there)

Its so interesting lesson………

Wednesday, February 7th 2018

Hello Adam!
Thank you for a lesson and I have three breaking news for you.
One: luge may be twoseater, i.e. two sportsmen simultaneously ride one luge.
Two: 6-point system (where each referee give from 0.0 to 6.0 points) has not been being applied in figure skating for a long time.
Three: nordic combined is ski jumping with following cross country.
So… Things happen.
Anyway your lessons are interesting and I’ll be waiting for next ones. Bye.

Wednesday, February 7th 2018

Thanks, Adam !Your lesson is very interestins and useful

hi Adam,
I played ping pong with someone from Pakistan.
I tried to say some words during the match like throw the ball or it is not correct but I felt these sentences is not correct. Please explain to me what should I say during ping pong matches.

thanks Adam!!!

This lesson is like the ring on one’s finger. I really liked it! :D Thank you.

After a period of absenteeism, I can realise that it is possible to continue learning English with enthusiasm and profitability while I am listening to our teacher Adam, generous and kind as always, and then focus on the topic on this lesson, not very common in all the countries but interesting at the same time, new vocabulary and remembering the name of some of the winter sports less expanded than others. I have seen all of them but it’s difficult to remember all its names. Thank a lot, teacher Adam, it’s a pleasure and an honour to learn English with you, very useful comments and explanations as always.

Wednesday, February 7th 2018

    Sorry, I think I have written a wrong possessive adjective, it would be “their names” instead of “its names” which is a singular adjective with or before a plural name, the mistake, anyway it would be “its name”. Thanks.

Good video, Adam.
I have a question. Is there a difference between
1. He wonders whether or not to believe this.
or
2. He wonders whether to believe this or not.

Are both forms correct?
