      Friday, August 15th 2014

    Hi Grazisil,

    By no means did I intend to do suggest that women are all the same. However, terms like ‘chick flick’ appear because they reflect on real life situations.
    I hope i did not cause you offense.

    Thursday, March 6th 2014

      ‘chick’ – it is woman …. mmm… sounds not very nice… :-/ thanks for your apologizing Adam… :-)

      Friday, March 21st 2014

      Great tip as always….love it.

      Thursday, November 20th 2014

Nice lesson. Thank you so much, Adam.
I usually read English, and sometimes I try to read aloud.
But I need to listen more; the word “genre”, I would never pronounce this one right by just reading…

Monday, February 17th 2014

HAHA! Excellent explanation Mr. Adam! thank you very much :)!

Monday, February 17th 2014

Nicely made lesson, and interesting quiz. Thank you so much.

thanks a lot !

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

I suppose they use the word “cast”, because the screenwriter ask for character and the casting guys have to “cast” someone “in the shape” imagined by the screenwriter. In Romanian the word for cast is “turna”. I suppose we have to use in English “Brad Pitt was cast in a movie”.

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

    Interesting point Geotip. Thanks :)

    Thursday, March 6th 2014

Thank you Adam. Love your vocabulary lessons. They always very clear. I’m not perfect at grammar but my vocabulary is like my own Achilles’ heel. My 4year-old niece reminds me of myself speaking English when she eagerly wants to say something momentous. It’s like her every second word is …ammm:-)

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

    how are you so nice writing.i like to learn also

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

I have a 9/9 very useful lesson. I really didn’t know the difference between the director and producer. I think it will be useful, especially for me because I want to become an actor. Thank you very much

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

Hello Mr Adam, Thank You so much,I have got 100 % and I am so happy,

I just need your advice, I will enter the Ilets Test after 3 Months, please give me an advice
Thank You so much indeed :)

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

    Hi Asmaasaad14,

    In such a short note, the best advice I can give you is to read as much as you can from now until then and build your vocabulary. But also look online for IELTS sites with exercises.
    Good luck

    Thursday, March 6th 2014

Thank you Adam, It’s helpful God bless you!

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

Tu est formidable ! Je t’adore toujours; jusqu’à respirais …

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

    Hi Emanuela. Nice compliment to Adam who deserves it and thanks for using French, nice language for love ;-).
    Adam should be a A-list teacher.

    Tuesday, February 18th 2014

      It’s my pleasure , I love french !

      Tuesday, February 18th 2014

      Oh yeap he should be an A-list teacher because he is the best one :), also is my favorite teacher.
      Quand’il parle d’amour <3 tu me comprends tres bien… (le FranÇais mon ami est toujours romantique ;))

      Wednesday, February 19th 2014

        Hi Emanuela Papazisi!

        I am unable to understand your compliment which is in French for Adam. From my perspective, If you had given your compliment in English all of us would have understood that nice compliment.

        Moreover I don’t know about Adam either he understand french or not. If he doesn’t then… Would you please translate it into English for my SWEEEEEETT Teacher ADAM??

        By the way I am not against french… I love french Kkkk…sss.

        Friday, February 21st 2014

        I don’t know but it seems you’ve fallen in love with Adam and you’re right. “Quand’il parle d’amour <3 tu me comprends tres bien… “ I didn't understand what you wanted to say, particularly “<3“. Do you think Adam is speaking about love? I thought is was speaking about…English ;-) but I'm sure he's very pleased with your love!!!!
        By the way we're all talking about Adam, he's the only one who doesn't.

        Saturday, February 22nd 2014

          Merci patple 13 :). I know you’re a great friend! I was thinking about what you wrote…
          You know ,here the most important thing is learning english!(the other things are just topics,which make english more interesting… that’s all)

          Saturday, February 22nd 2014

          Voila, je suis ici :)

          Sorry it took so long.

          English can be quite a romantic language as well if you know how to weave it well.

          Thursday, March 6th 2014

        Thank you Emanuela,

        I love French as well. I wish I could speak it better, but I only have the French I learned in school (in Canada… so Quebecois– not the same :( )

        Thursday, March 6th 2014

You are great, clear and polite as usual! Love it, thanks.

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

I’m so happy that I found this website, it’s really awesome. Your lecture was great, but I think more examples about a new word make it more clear.

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

Thank you Adam ! I have learned new words about cinema ! Thats cute !

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

Hi, I want to start from the beginning to study the lessons in English, I may say that I follow order of the lessons, I do not understand very well by the lessons or find them?

    Tuesday, February 18th 2014

thank you

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

Hi Adam! Thank for another great lesson. Tell me. What do you think about create lesson about difficult pairs like “stuff vs. thing”, “stuff vs staff”, “see vs. look” and so on….. (“and so on” I heard in Yours lesson in 2012). Often this pairs are very confusion for students.

Wednesday, February 19th 2014

    Good ideas here Euro,

    I’ll see what I can do about getting some of them up here.

thanks Adam :D

Thursday, February 20th 2014

Adam, what is the difference between “part of” and “a part of”. Just look at the following text:

“When this option is on, if a simple command fails for any of the reasons listed in Consequences of Shell Errors or returns an exit status value >0, and is not part of the compound list following a while, until, or if keyword, and is not a part of an AND or OR list, and is not a pipeline preceded by the ! reserved word, then the shell shall immediately exit.”

I’m not sure whether the letter “a” is missing because I’ve seen both “a part of” and “part of” many times.

Thursday, February 20th 2014

    Hi Morfik,

    I was hoping to give you a more definitive answer, but after searching around the net and in some books, I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no real difference and they can be used interchangeably.
    That being said, the article (a), to me, suggests an individualizing element, such that ‘a’ part of is a distinct part that can later be referred to as ‘the’ part. Part of, therefore, would be an element in the whole.

    This does not necessarily help you here anyway, because in the example you gave, both terms refer to the same thing — a simple command’s place in some list.

    So, where does that leave us? being frustrated by, yet loving this language ( but that might just be me again ;) )

    Thursday, March 6th 2014

      Part of, therefore, would be an abstract element in the whole

      Thursday, March 6th 2014

thanks a lot for you about this lesson

Thursday, February 20th 2014

Thx u its useful for foreigner practice listening

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Thank you very much Mr.Adam …

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

Thanks Adam for the class..
Could you please tell me the difference here,which one is correct?
Frightful incident/frightening incident
Terrific attack/terrifying attack
horrible accident /horrifying accident/horrific attack

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

    Hi Pinyuk,

    In all the examples, the adjectives ending in -ing describe the feeling that the noun instills in the observer.
    So, a terrifying attack, means that those who witnessed the attack (not necessarily the victims) were terrified.
    The other adjectives describe the noun itself, in strong emotional characterizations.

    Does that help?

    Thursday, March 6th 2014

Many thanks Mr Adam for this useful lesson.Frankly,I have never heard these expressions before.

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

So clear. Have someone ever told you that you transmit confidence and god vibrations ?

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

    That’s nice to hear. Thank you Thinopar

Wednesday, February 26th 2014

Hello teacher

Wednesday, February 26th 2014

Hi teacher how can I do know?

Wednesday, February 26th 2014

    Hi Solhy?
    How can you know? ask :)

    Thursday, March 6th 2014

Thanks Adam.

I would like to ask you a question, though not regarding the lecture but related to my English learning.

Problem is, when I write English essays or write on any topic, I can write long and even complex sentences very easily with out making mistakes of grammar and can use strong or high level words But while speaking, either on phone or face to face I cannot speak even a very short sentence correctly. I forget even low level words to complete my conversation.

This is very serious problem for me. kindly guide me through this and tell me how to tackle such conditions……..


Wednesday, February 26th 2014

    Hi Naveed,

    Yours is not an uncommon problem. From my experience, the main issue is time. When you write, you are in a quiet place and in no hurry. When you speak with someone, you have to construct your sentences quickly while at the same time preparing for the response. This can be distracting.

    Try reading out loud what you write, and record yourself. Listen to your good English and remember that you can construct good sentences. Then, when you speak with someone, don’t be in a hurry. If they want the conversation, they will wait for you.

    Mostly, though, just practice speaking every chance you get. This problem will eventually go away.

    I hope this helps a little

    Thursday, March 6th 2014

      Thanks Adam,
      one thing I must ask you, why I always used to be in hurry while speaking?? I really don’t know…

      Monday, June 9th 2014

    Oh beleive me Naveed, you are not alone, as Adam said. My writting his much better than my speaking and I have the same feeling as yours. When I forget the “s” whith he, or she at the present, that hurts my hears as soon as it comes out of my mouth. I am so annoyed by this ;)But it has to be practice, practice and pratice, the only things which can fix it. Oral language and written one are not at the same level though. Nobody speaks like the way he writes. The opposite happens : peole writting like they are speaking. But usualy it is not considered that good ;)

    Friday, March 7th 2014

wow, it is a surprise!

Wednesday, February 26th 2014

Hi Adam, how are you today? About film I know a word I’ve be long to look for (laziness) which is “footage“. Before I new what it meant I thought it was related to soccer :-). One grammatical question I could also ask Rebecca: I read many English books (I love this language) and I have remarked there were very few punctuation marks which renders reading quite difficult above all in the very long sentences. Also, watching again your lesson about “How to use etc., …, and so on, etc., I noticed you didn’t like some food such as pizza, hamburgers, pita, etc., you called “junk food“ and I agree with when you get them in supermarkets, fast-food restaurants… . However, when you cook them

Thursday, February 27th 2014

However, when you cook them at home, le result is quite different since you use excellent and fresh products and no the junk products we are served in McDonald’s and similar. I remind you that you are welcome in Avignon to share with us splendid meals I am sure you will love.

Thursday, February 27th 2014

    Hi Patple,

    Thank you :) To tell the truth, I make very tasty pizza at home.

    I forgot to mention before that I have been to Avignon once. Too bad I didn’t know you 10 years ago. I went there to the arts festival.

    Anyway, when I return there, I’ll be very happy to share a meal with you :)

    Friday, March 7th 2014

100 :D thank you.

Thursday, February 27th 2014

Adam, could you tell me if the word “shutdown” may be used as a gerund, or does it have a continuous form — shutdowning? I wanted to write “while rebooting or shutdowning my pc”, but my dictionary underlined the word in question. So, there’s “reboot”, “rebooting”, “shutdown”, but no “shutdowning”? I’ve been seeing the word “shutdowning” all the time, but it looks like the word doesn’t exists at all. I even came across the following statement: “This site is dedicated to educating people about the common misuses of words like “shutdown.” It is meant for both non-native speakers who may not know any better, and for native speakers who should know better but don’t.” . I’m wondering if I can say “Shutdowning a pc via the power button isn’t a good idea.”. Adam, what would you say about the sentence? :)

Friday, February 28th 2014

    Hi Morfik,

    I’m a little surprised when you say you’ve seen the word shutdowning all the time. It isn’t a word. Shutdown is a joined phrasal verb to create a noun or adjective. As a phrasal, it’s ‘shut down’, so the gerund would be shutting down. So: “Shutting down the PC via the power…,” is the correct way.

    Hope this helps.

    Friday, March 7th 2014

Thanks :)

Friday, February 28th 2014

Thanks Adam.

Very good lessons!

Wednesday, March 5th 2014

Hi Adam. Thank you for sharing these effective lesson to us. Truly I like and prefer American English than British English and Unfortunately in my country most of the vocabulary English books cover British English not American English. Now I need your advice. would please introduce some vocabulary and idioms books for Intermediate level to up to buy them.

May the Force be with You

Thursday, March 6th 2014

    Thanks Sunflower.:)

    To be honest, wouldn’t recommend vocab books. I’d prefer you read newspapers, magazines, online articles, and so on. It’s much more valuable in vocab building.

    If you still want some books, I’ll do some research and recommend some

    Friday, March 7th 2014

      Thanks Adam, I like your idea and I’m sure it works better than vocabulary books, I love Britannica articles and sometimes I read some articles and learn new words and phrases. but I think I read more and more especially mag and articles as you said.

      Thanks again and good luck

Hi Everybody,

Sorry for the (very late responses this time. I had some family issues to take care of, and then my internet went down.

No worries, though. All is well now.

See you soon.


Friday, March 7th 2014

    I hope everything goes well

    Hi Adam,

    Better late than never ;) => Is this expression correct in English ? That is what we would say in French – mieux vaut tard que jamais.

this man is the best teacher! Congratulations, Congratulations.

Tuesday, March 25th 2014

Thank you Very much Adam :)
I’ve just signed up in this website and I’m really happy to watch this video :) :)
but can I ask you question .. what is the difference between “prequel” and “sequel”? sorry I can’t get it :\

Tuesday, March 25th 2014

    The prequel is about things that happened before the original movie; the sequel is about things that happened after. For example: the 1979 movie Alien was set in the year 2122. The next movie, Aliens (1986), was set in 2179 — it is a sequel. The 2012 movie Prometheus is part of the same story, but takes place in 2093 — that makes it a prequel.

    Wednesday, March 26th 2014

      And Mr. engVid also thinks that Prometheus is better than Alien and Aliens, though engVid Moderator I’m sure will disagree :)

      Wednesday, March 26th 2014

100% :))))))))) Great lesson!! Mamy thanks!!

Saturday, November 1st 2014

Hi Adam :)
Can you do vocabulary lesson about television series ? What´s the meaning of the word spin-off (or spinoff)? How do you explain it?
Thank you so much :)

Monday, November 17th 2014

    That’s a good idea!

    In the meanwhile: a “spinoff” is a new TV show about a supporting/side character from another show. For example, the character Jack Harkness, who appeared a few times in Doctor Who, became a main character in a new show called Torchwood.

    Monday, November 17th 2014

I love movies. I not only see a movie. I study it, copy vocabulary, slangs, and most of all
I repeat what the actor/actress says a zillion times.
I’m not a showing off kind of person but, believe me, I know some movies by heart.

” This is the beginning of a beautiful frienship.” Bogart Casablanca.

” Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

Clark Gable Gone with the wind.

” He even took the gramophone on safari. Two
rifles, suplies for a month and Mozart. He
started our friendship with a gift….”
Meryl Streep Out of Africa.

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

    The sign of a true movie lover! (Also, Meryl Streep is one of my favourite actresses.)

    Tuesday, December 9th 2014

      Wow!!! I’ve finally got my comment approved and
      you’ve responded me…to me it’s like my first
      Christmas present!!!!!!!!!!!!

      And Meryl is your favorite actress too.Welll, she
      is the best actress of course,and I’ve read
      somewhere she is the best actress to reproduce
      any kind of accents.

      I do thank you a lot for being so kind as
      responding to a comment that isn’t about the
      most beautiful language in the entire world:

      Thanks again.

      Wednesday, December 10th 2014

…I think I should have written..” so kind as
to responding” if it’s wrong, when possible,
correct it, okay?

Thanks again.

Wednesday, December 10th 2014

Thank you for the lesson!!!!
