Thank you Adam.It’s a bit difficult for me, but it will help me when reading a English’newspaper.

Saturday, April 21st 2018

This lesson was extremely difficult.
Therefore, I´ll see it again tomorrow ;)

Saturday, April 21st 2018

I tried,but this lesson is a little bit difficult for me. But I’ll try again. Thankyou

Saturday, April 21st 2018

İ think in this structure the important point is to be able diferentiate between the those words

Saturday, April 21st 2018

Tks a lot for that lesson. It isn’t an easy task. I’ve tried to do the quiz and my score was not good. I used to use that sentence a lot when I was an auditor, (kind of pattern). However I used it at the end of the sentence. “these financial statements encompass a series of actions relating to management, existence, evaluation and accuracy of assets and liabilities, as well as the presentation thereof. Can I use the rest of the transations at the end as well?

Saturday, April 21st 2018

    Hi Juju,

    Yes, if they imply the same message, then yes. Your example works well.

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

MR ADAM would you please repeat this lesson with an easy vocabulary and clear-cut examples as the transitions are almost similar which make things more difficult, waiting for a good response from your side

Saturday, April 21st 2018

    Hi Zaki,

    To be honest, if you are using simpler vocab, you can find other ways, more simple ways, to say these things as well. This is part of more advanced writing skills. Writing needs to have a uniform style, so if you use simple words and then connect them with these transitions, then it might not seem natural.

    Hope this helps.

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

Thank you very much!! I was confused about them, I met them in books frequently, and it is very pleasant you are paying attention to the comments and requests for new videos.

Saturday, April 21st 2018

Saturday, April 21st 2018

Thank you, Adam! I love this lesson. It is a pity that we can not use this website in China. It is like a treasure chest for English speakers.
Furthermore, I do want to know how to use a sentence with”; “.

Saturday, April 21st 2018

    Hi Yuxiayang,

    You can try to use a VPN in China, but the government there doesn’t allow YouTube, so not much else to be done. Hope you can keep watching :)

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

This is a really difficult lesson but it is very important to me. That is because I see those words many times when reading some international contracts in the company. I will watch this video many times, I hope. Thanks Adam.

Sunday, April 29th 2018

Thank you very much Adam, as an internal Lawyer, it is very useful to learn how to master these transitions, even more, I see many of these transitions used in the legal writing and commercial agreements, many thanks for the lesson, appreciate!

Monday, April 30th 2018

    Yes, Sofia, legalese can be very “wordy” :)

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

hi adam.you are doing a fantastic job.pls make a video phrasal verb and expressions with the verb cut and pull or go

Wednesday, May 2nd 2018

    I’ll get on it ;)

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

I have a thought that these words could remain in that shape from the germanic origin of English. I mean such german words as damit, dabei, dazu etc, where “da” in German in this context is kind of “that”. The etymology could be interesting.

Friday, May 4th 2018

    Hi Vadim,

    Etymology can go a long way in learning a language.

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

Thank you so much for your lesson, it’s quite difficult however i got 8 outta 10 :)

Friday, May 4th 2018

Hello from Bangladesh!!
i want to know about the difference between “i know that” and “i do know that”.
is it about to put some more contrast or something?
God Bless You

Saturday, May 5th 2018

    Hi Rashed,

    Adding the do to an active verb is meant to emphasize the verb. Usually it is used when someone might suspect the opposite. For example someone thinks you don’t know, so you correct them and say I do know.

    Does this help?

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

      Yes,sir. Thanks for your prompt response.

      Monday, May 14th 2018

I got 10 correct out of 10. I can’n believe it!!! :)

Sunday, May 6th 2018

    Good job Oleg :)

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

9/10!! Wow! I’m happy, given the complexity of the topic!

Sunday, May 6th 2018

    Good job Calibardo :)

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

Hi Adam. I adore you and your lessons. You are great teacher. Could you explain the different type of use of WOULD? I read some stories where its use in past tense is very often…but sometimes I cannot translate it to myself, especially in complex sentences.Thank you in advance.

Sunday, May 6th 2018

    I’ll see what I can do, Monik :)

    Tuesday, May 8th 2018

Very interesting this topic

Monday, May 7th 2018

Thanks everyone :)

Tuesday, May 8th 2018

The discussed topic has its importance in our understanding of an academic paper. The class was difficult for me, indeed, but incontestable useful. Certainly I’ll have to watch it again and use them in my writing countless times to fully comprehend the usage of those words.

Tuesday, May 8th 2018

You’re a great teacher, Mr Adam. Thanks.
I got 9/10 but, honestly, I don’t know how I did it.
I’ll keep practicing with your help. Looking forward to taking more lessons

Wednesday, May 9th 2018

Sorry Mr.adam, I unable understand this lesson
is it possible to teach any simple way to learn

Friday, May 11th 2018

    This is an advanced writing lesson Ramesh. I can speak more simply, but the material won’t change. Try reading some academic essays and you will see these used.

    Tuesday, May 29th 2018

it’s a bit difficult to understand the way to use them, but i will listen again, i think it will be useful for me to read the document and newspaper.

Friday, May 11th 2018

Hey Adam, any opinion on “ergo”?
Do you recommend using it in IELTS writing?

Friday, May 11th 2018

    Hi Sina,

    It’s old-fashioned. No-one uses this anymore. It sounds a little pretentious. I don’t recommend using it.

    Tuesday, May 29th 2018

thanks a lot, Mr Adam
I want to know there are differences between thereby and therefore.

Sunday, May 13th 2018

Hi Adam,
I got 5 out of 10. Thanks!

Sunday, May 13th 2018

I hereby restate that Adam is the best teacher in Engvid.

Tuesday, May 15th 2018

I got score 5 out of 10. As legal officer I’m still think this is a lot difficult event though often see it in the contract or agreement or clause of agreement. I should take more test and practice them on my writing skill within drafting such an agreement. Thanks Adam giving this lesson to know more how to put them proper and right way.. keep waiting new video lesson from you!

Wednesday, June 13th 2018

Hello adam
You r totally amazing teacher😍😍😍

Wednesday, June 13th 2018

Thank You, Mr Adam. I got 10/10 on this quiz…

Saturday, June 16th 2018

Thank you Mr. Adam! Your didactic, timing, subject, quiz, etc, represent a good set of learning tools and resources for all of us. 6/10 without proper study :( need to practice a lot more! Congratulations for a distinct and differentiated work.

Tuesday, June 19th 2018

Thanks for the awesome lesson.
I’ve observed that “thereby” is mostly followed by (verb+ing) form regardless of whether the sentence takes place in past, future or present. As in this example from the dictionary: “The number of uninsured cars will rise and the cost to the industry will increase, thereby pushing premiums up further.”.

However, I seldom see “thereby” followed by a verb in other forms such as past tense. For example: “This behavior increased demand and thereby pushed prices up still more.”, why isn’t it “pushing up the prices…”. Is either form right,?

Tuesday, June 19th 2018

Would it be possible to write ‘therefore’ instead of ‘whereby’.If not,could you please explain it!!!

Friday, June 22nd 2018

In the question number 2. Will it be – it clear or it clears.

Friday, June 22nd 2018

Thank you, Adam. For the first time, I achieved 6/10
thereafter I watched the video again and again then I achieved 9/10

Sunday, June 24th 2018

Hi Adam, thank you because of your greats videos! I’m an intermediate English learner and was thinking about to take a course abroad of about 4 weeks to ground up my English. Is there in Toronto any place that offers this kind of courses?

Wednesday, June 27th 2018

Oh wow, I expected I might have scored even less, but 7|10 look pretty good to me with such complicated topic.

Monday, July 2nd 2018

Hi Adam,
Thank you so much for the video. After learning from the video, I still confuse of some of them. I am not sure when to use thereby or whereby, therein or wherein. They are similar to me. Could you explain more the difference of them?

Tuesday, July 3rd 2018

The teacher in this video did a very good job thereby getting all the credit and was able to be understandable. the footage and all details therein; was very well explained by the excellent teacher. The lesson was so sophisticated, especially the words chosen thereof, and was pretty much informative, there is no reason, therefore, we should be confused. he elaborated on each part until we understood it, thereafter, It began simplifying. The video did not show wherein Mr. Adam had done anything wrong, whereby, all of us has benefitted. So given the above circumstances, I hereby declare the lesson was marvelous. How have I done? Please, would you explain the expression “he’s into surfing” or “he is just not that into you”.

Thursday, July 5th 2018

    amazing and ‘helpful’ reply. Thank You

    Saturday, July 7th 2018

      Thank you Laras, I hope it was helpful.

      Saturday, July 7th 2018

Hi Adam, the lesson is easier to understand than the quiz, but your explanation is perfect. Maybe ‘practice’ on phrases and examples is the key for improving :)

Saturday, July 7th 2018

Adam, you’re doing a good job. Keep up the good work. We’re blessed to have a teacher like you. :)

Sunday, July 8th 2018

Thanks for the lesson Adam. I am preparing for General IELTS and I have a question related to that. When you say these transitions need to be used for academic writing and formal writing, does it mean this is important for General IELTS as well? or it is only for Academic IELTS?

Thursday, July 19th 2018

Great, thank you. 8/10. I did better than expected. I learned your lesson.

Friday, July 20th 2018

I scored 90 in the quiz in first attempt therefore, I need not to take the quiz again.

Friday, July 27th 2018

4 out of 10
the worst result i scored in here
need to watch the lesson again until it become fully understandable

Friday, August 24th 2018

Wow, I like this this stuff, nonetheless it’s a way over my head, thanks a lot Adam. What Im doing right after I took a video, I shared it with my crew, it helps me to get a better comprehension and give some space to rehash about something that I learned from you.

Thanks a lot dude.

Thursday, September 6th 2018

hi ADAM,
what is the difference between where and wherein

Friday, September 14th 2018

Hi Adam,
could you please tell me what the differences between transitions and conjunctions?
And is it possible that a word like “since” act both as a conjunction and transition?
Thank you very much for your reply in advance.

Thursday, October 11th 2018

9/10 a half of a year has passed thereafter.
Thank you very much Mr. Adam

Friday, October 19th 2018

I think, it is a little bit for advanced english learner.

Saturday, October 20th 2018

Saturday, October 27th 2018

Thursday, June 6th 2019

Thanks, Adam for your video lesson particularly about the topic Transition.
I felt a bit confused about which letter to choose an answer for each number of your 10-item quiz. It’s difficult, yet challenging. I am happy with my score, though it’s not perfect, but at least I got only three mistakes (not too bad).

Monday, July 8th 2019

This was definately unexpected.
I hereby declare Adam a great teacher.
Thank you

Tuesday, August 20th 2019

I hereby declare that the transitions definitely enhance the writing level as long as we use them in the essay.

Wednesday, September 11th 2019

This was a little bit difficult for me, but I really have to learn how to use those words. I study a lot of essays about literature and sometimes I get confused. I think I am going to study one at a time, by reading all the examples of google translator, and thereafter take that quiz again… Thank you!!!
