    a little bit easy or hard? ;)

    it’s all a matter of practice.

    Adam

      try to conclude this lesson below:

      paragraph

      1, thesis statement(general) + supporting details (why important, reasons, examples)

      2, flow bridges (sentence to sentence), end with bridge (paragraph to paragraph)

      3, indent or skip a line, any length but 4-6 sentences in TOEFL

      “it is all a matter of practice”.

      many thanks.

      Sam

      It’s a matter of practice
      true PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

ursalso

ikiller

Very, very interest topic. After this lesson I’m sure that next articles or reports writes by me will be short and full understandable. Thanks.

Dennys Espinoza (Vzla)

Fantastic lesson Adam!!!!. It’s crystal clear but I know I’ll watch this video a few more times. This topic is probably my weakest point and your explanations are a big help for me. I think it would be very good for those of us with a certain level to go deeper in writing skills. Although it is not nice to repeat words in the same paragraph, FANTASTIC LESSON all the way.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I really like the way you teach, also
the subject of the paragraph and the vocabulary you used.

P.D. I’m looking forward to be enlightened by all of you with many more masterpieces like this one.

carlos

    Thank you Carlos :)

    Adam

Hi Teacher. I am very happy to see your vedio. You have explained each sentence very well, i love it. After today, I’m sure that i will follow your suggestions when i will start to write my thesis. Thanks.

    sondos.mohm

Im gonna have Ielts this week, so this lesson was really useful and helpful for me to understand all tricks of writing paragraphs. I have some problems with writing as sometimes i don’t know what to write about. If it’s not difficult for u, could u please give me some essential tips for writing tasks (1 and 2). Thanks in advance.
P.S. Once again – lesson was brilliant!

kate29

    Hi Kate,

    I’m afraid there is too much to tell you about that here. I will make some lessons on that but it might take some time.

    For now though:
    task 1- do not give an opinion.
    – first paragraph summarize the task given ( i.e., what are you looking at?)
    – next two paragraphs, mention highlights, that is highs and lows, major trends, drastic changes, etc. don’t try to include everything.
    – there is no need for a conclusion.

    task 2:- have an introduction that presents the topic, the question, your stand on the question, and how you will argue for it.
    – at least two body paragraphs, one for each line of reasoning you will take (as presented in intro)
    – conclusion should be a short summary of the essay. Do not introduce new ideas.
    – make sure you give good and realistic examples.

    Hopefully you have already passed your test so this is needless, but just in case. :)

    Adam

      Thank u so much for ur tips! I passed IELTS on 6.0! It’s very good result for me, because it’s my first time ever passing such kind of difficult exam!!! :) :)

      kate29

        Congratulations :)

        Adam

I’d like met you. And I met one person that will like met you, because he’d like learn your language, russian. ;) See you! Best regards! Congratulations for your test!Thank you!

      hello teacher.
      I have to ready for IELTS. I read 2 books about vocabulary(focus on vocabulary 1 and 2) also I read grammar. I read COLLIN and Longman about writing but I am really weak even to write one paragraph. I don’t know what I have to do to progress my writing.

      Fateme1

Thank you, Adam!

yankhonskiy

Hi Adam

I don’t really have understood the expression “key terms” in this video.

By the way, thank you very much for your excellent work.

artur72

sgmmm

Question #1, the number cups of coffee,a person should drink everday,I think they should be every day,because it is an adverb of frequency,it show how often it should be.

cuongchung1

    Good eye Cuong ta. You’re right, that was probably a typo.

    Adam

Thanks for the cognitive lesson!

Adam, whether you can help? I absolutely cannot understand the difference between From where/where from, What for\For what…
and when to use this?

kazumi7akiyama

    Hi Kazumi,

    Well, there are some old English textbooks that teach that you should never end a sentence with a preposition. It’s a little old fashioned, but some people still believe that and follow that rule. They think you should say:
    From where did you get that dress?

    not

    Where did you get that dress from?

    These days both are considered acceptable, unless you’re a purist. But they mean the same thing.

    Not sure if that answered your question, but I hope it helps. Let me know.

    Adam

      It helps me a lot! Thank you immensely ^-^

      Thus my conclusion is that If I want to say the well-known expression “Where are you from?”, I can also say “From where are you?”.
      At least this rule exists in our days .)

      kazumi7akiyama

This is a very good lesson about writing skills suited for writing in any language, not just in English.

Thank you!

arinamg

good job Alex. I’d like you to make many lessons on how to write an essay.

Hi Adam. Thanks for this lesson. it was very interesting and helpful for me.

ganbashir15

Thanks. It’s very helpful. I will keeping following and learning your lessons.

annachen2013

Hi Adam. A dent is also a bump on a car’s body isn’it? In French writing style, a dent is called an “alinéa”.

I am studying English le best as I can. With this aim, I am working everyday vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. One problem is the richness of the English vocabulary which probably counts more than twice the number of French words. In addition, a single word can become a verb or a noun and often, adding ‘ly’ or ‘ness’ to a verb, you get an adverb or a noun not to mention the phrasal verbs which are pure nightmares. However we can take advantage of this abundance of words to avoid repeating twice a word in one sentence.
Now, concerning grammar….
At last, I would say that pronunciation is capital to be understood by native English speakers, you are better off making vocabulary or grammar than pronunciation mistakes.
So, I can just say that learning English is a nice personal challenge..

patple13

    I agree Patple.

    Keep up the good work. :)

    Adam

I appreciate you and website for these lessons, i was wondering if you could give all the vocabulary word related to (ANGRY and SORROW) including phrase related to these words…
thanks to all

niravpanchal06

      Oh, Thank you for sharing the name of the book.

binyameen

I try to answers the quiz without watching the video.so,i only got 5 correct out of 10.that was so bad.

sitisyuhada358

    Hahaha! What did you get *after* you watched the video?

    engVid Moderator

60 — this is the worst score I’ve ever had, at least for a very very long time. I just can’t choose the better option. Sometimes two, or even three, variants sound good to me, so how can I decide? :)

The funniest thing is that in my country people use tab for starting a new paragraph, and I do not follow that way, and I’m using space (skipped line) all the time because I think this looks a way better than a little indentation. Besides in the internet, everyone uses spaces because you can’t simply make tab in these forms on www pages when you are commenting something. :)

morfik

    I agree. I skip lines as well, but it all depends on who you are writing for. Every publication has its own style guide. Academic writing, though, usually asks for indentation.

    Adam

thanks adam your lessons are really helpful.
I wanna know which English is considered standard world wide, British or American and why?

dschouhan

    Hi DSingh,

    Can’t really say there is a standard. I think American is more popular but that’s because America has a greater reach globally, in terms of Hollywood, CNN, etc. Internet English is mostly American as well. I’ll try to see if there is any research on this question and let you know.

    Adam

Please keep helping me with my English. Thank you

miguimgr

    Teacher Adam, Your explanation was very clear.. Big help for me on how to construct a paragraph.. Thank you so much..I got the idea.

Dear Adam,
1st thing 1st,A Warm Hi :)
Would u mind 2 lend me a helping hand pls??!!!
So do I….So am I….Me 2….So have I….
In my book,they use in accordance with the verb o helping verb which sb is saying.
e.g. :A: I do my homework at the weekend.
B: So do I.
Right???????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!

Regards,
:) fatiima!

fatiima8

    Hi Fatima,

    Yes, that’s exactly right. Always agree with the verb.
    A: I love English.
    B: So do I

    A: I’ve never been to Paris.
    B: I haven’t either.

    :)

    Adam

What’s up? How’s everything?

I’m having too much dificulty understanding the difference and usage of “on to” and “onto”. Could you explain them?

She held on to her child in the crowd.

Let’s step onto the dance floor.

So, how did you get onto this deal?( does get onto here mean to know about sth?)
Thanks

henry19

    Hi Henrique,

    With on to, remember that the on goes with the verb, the to goes with the object.
    so, hold on, means grab, or hold tight. to what? to the rail.

    ‘onto’, basically means ‘on’. It’s not used as often as plain ‘on’.

    As for the ‘get onto this deal’, it means as you said, to come to know/be involved with something.

    Adam

Thank you so much. Adam

dhissie

Really awesome. but hard to me . Got long way to go…

johnman1015

Wow!!! This is an amazing video. The BEST VIDEO I’ve ever seen in my life. Many thanks Adam. I’m awfully obligated to you.

Thank you so muchhh! :)

thank you a lot for support have luck……

samirpro

Hi Adam, great lesson! I thought it was going to be a pretty boring aspect of English ( sorry, but it’s not as much fun as say, idioms or vocabulary :)) ) but you made it really interesting and what’s the most important – useful :)

My question concerns putting quotations. I’m not sure if my inquiry is within the subject, but if it’s not too much trouble, can you please explain how I should quote in say, MA thesis? Just to be sure that we’re on the same page, for example ” learning should be an autonomous process” Brown J. … should I use ” or ‘ ? What else should I write, the year, the page, what if Mr. Brown is also quoting someone else ? Sorry if I haven’t explained my question thoroughly enough but that’s just it- I’m really confused when it comes to these quotations in e.g. MA thesis. Thanks a lot!:)

cornellie

    Hi Cornellie,

    You’re not alone. It is very confusing. First of all, you need to find out which style guide you’re supposed to use (APA, MLA, Chicago). Your MA syllabus shouold tell you that.

    Next, try OWL at Purdue. This site will give you all the formatting info you need. It’s a very useful and easy to use site.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Adam

Thanks for the great comments everyone :)

Adam

Hi Adam,

I’ve been seeing that part “yet, it is this..” so much but nothing clear so far :(( I would be delighted if you could tell me with other explanations :) [and I will have an exam four days from now, please correct my mistakes if you see any :)]

Erkin

first of all, thank you so much =)
but I have another problem. next week I have an exam at Uni, level FIRST(B2) and for the writing, it could be an article, a report, a formal letter or an essay. I would know which are the main rules of each types of writing? For example: when and where phrasal verbs can be used, when not, or how many paragraphs there are for an article, how many for a report or an essay? and so on. I hope that you understand what I mean. Thank you so much another time:)
p.s.I’m sorry if there are grammatical errors in this comment :P

I watched your video about writing paragraph and would like to improve my writing skills. I have belief that only by practice i can improve my writing skills. Do you have any books where i could write, and then i could check the answers myself. Or Do you have any other better suggestions.

Thanks

Thanks, 40%

Abdul Qayum

Thank you Adam for this lesson, it reminds us how important vocabulary is to avoid repetitions.

Roy Egan

on the video, I find the sentence “they have access to means with which to enforce the law and punish offenders.” advanced. I am not familiar with the term “with which”. If I were to write it, it would be something like “they have access to resources which can enforce the law and punish those who violate them.”.

Adam, do you mind explaining this? does this give extra points to the essay?

kungfutofu

TEACHER ADAM WOULD YOU MIND DOING A VIDEO ABOUT USAGE OF ALL TENSES PLEASE IT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL

arturoguillermo

    THAT WOULD BE A VERY LONG LESSON, CAN YOU NARROW IT DOWN A BIT?

    engVid Moderator

Great Class!!

It´s the sort of class that i´ll watch several times and take good information each time i watch. It´s not easy to make such explanation!!

Thank you Adam!

The video is informative! Would it be possible to tell us the difference between writing body paragraph with listing reasons and comparing or contrasting?

Hai Sir,I became a huge fan of yours.After watching some of the videos of your teaching I could understand that excellent teachers are still available in this world.Your videos are really useful………I donot have much vocabulary to explain my sincere respect and thanks to you…..
I have a request….I will be so happy if you are able to suggest some books(In different category) having good vocabulary(Not having tough words).
Please suggest if there is any website having a facility to correct the writings……..

Hi Adam,I just bumped into your videos about a week ago. I happen to like the way you and other teachers highlight English piece by piece. I am a
Filipino Nurse working in Saudi Arabia planning to take IELTS 2-3 months from now or when I seem ready. Unfortunately, I don’t know how and what to start. Please help me and guide me on this. Thank you very much.

Ahmad Arief

Hi Adam thank you. Good lesson, it was very helpful for me. I like very much your classes.

labrilm

Hi Adam,
Can you explain the pronunciation of word “directly”?
You pronounced the “i” in it like “e” in the word “be” I have heard somewhere the “i” in the word “directly” like “i” in “lie”, “die”.

Li lit

Hi Adam! This is a great lesson. I am planning to retake my IELTS because I did not quite reach the writing band score that I had wanted (I had a 6.5 but I was opting for a 7 or a 7.5). I like writing, to be honest, but I struggle a lot when it comes to academic writing. Your video made it easier for me to understand how ideas should flow within a paragraph and how to transition to the next paragraph without making the reader confused as to what I am trying to convey.
Thanks once again. Im looking forward to more videos from you regarding the IELTS and IELTS Academic Writing.

kat23

Sir
Really impressive VIDEOS. I must say you are in the real sense a fab teacher.
I have a doubt in writing.HOW LONG AN INTRODUCTORY PARA SHOULD BE.
BECAUSE IN VIDEOS DUE TO COMPLEX SENTENCES IT SEEMS TO BE OF LONG ENOUGH.
EXCELLENT JOB DONE SIR.
HOPE TO SEE MORE VIDEOS ON WRITING AND PARAPHRASING .

asees

Hello,Adam
your way ou explaining is really intersting, what i want if you don’t find any problem about that is i have a serious problem in my academic writing essays i’m a failure on them please if you could help to get over that situation ( and sorry about my english i think its bad ) thank you in advance

Rida1Attar

marydelle

Your lessons are really helpful. You teach very well. Both the introduction and paragraph writing videos helped me alot. Could you give a video on concluding paragraph as well?? Thank you.

SaKo

Loved your presentation. I might use the concept in my class, but will have to adjust the topic/thesis for my students. I am working on paragraphs and teaching the inter to an essay.

Bozeana

I FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR EFFORT.I THINK IMPROVING IN WRITING NEEDS MORE AND MORE PRACTICE IN ACCOMPANYING WITH THE TEACHER’S CORRECTION .

Alaa Noori

Thank you teacher Adam for all these lessons , I know it’s hard but very helpful , but I have a request if you can guys make few lessons about you know…far away of grammar on the streets for example ,things we see in our life, or find by walking on z garage when we find for example some sand pieces of wood a fence and all these stuff ,it will be very nice !!

sofiane.s48

Hi Adam!
First of all, thank you! This is a very useful lesson, like most of your lessons.
I was wondering, is the paragraph you gave as an example not too long for an essay? If you have 3 paragraphs like this + introduction + conclusin it’s gonna be more than 350 words, or even more than 400. I thought that an essay should be more concise and not too oversized, otherwise you may loose points. I though that perfect essay size is between 250 and 300 words.
Not even to mention that very few people could write such a long essay with good coherance and grammar in less than 40 minutes.
Could you comment on this, please.

Ann222

hi Adam help me out with this question

Indicate which underlined portion contains an error.

The collision happened on account of the brakes were faulty. Had the brakes been functioning properly then she would have been able to stop.
– happened
– on account of
– functioning
– then
I know the answer, but I need to understand why . It sounds perfect

Hi, Adam! Your explanation was clear and easy, thanks a lot! But i have a question about assignment when the task given like “Do you agree or disagree” or “Give your answer to support” or “discuss” so what’s the differences between them. I’ve heard that they should be different from each other, i have difficulties in finding it?

rocksagar

I got 100, again. Wow!. Thanks Adam it’s a good lesson to practice.

saeful

Terrific tips, thanks a lot, I was wondering if you could possibly produce a similar video but applicable to the Cambridge CPE Writing test, the main challenge in the test consists of writing a discursive essay where the key points of two texts of approximately 100 words each need to be summarized and evaluated, it also requires expressing my own idea/opinion on the topic in approximately 240-280 words.

I know this is uncommon, but I am taking the exam early next year and you have a way of explaining things that actually make sense, thanks a lot.

carlosduran46

I have join this website just now. I really impressed by your lesson Sir. You the man great work for us who are actually learn to english as foreign language. Thank you

Masood Siddiki

Hi Adam! I will be taking the TOEFL in 3 weeks. Do you give private lessons? I would like to have my essays corrected by you, and if you do how much do you charge?

nydiaanai

That’s not easy please can someone help me!!!!!!!

Jihan.✨

Thank for the lesson, Adam! It is extremely useful for me. I’m taking a university contest in English in February. There is a task, in which I am to write a paragraph on the given topic. My problem is that it is not an essay, just ONE PARAGRAPH. I have to “state the topic, give reasons and make a conclusion” (it’s what the task says). Should I change the structure of the paragraph you talked about or it will stay the same? Please help! It is very important for me.

Annie_the_hobbit

Hii Adam . thank you for this interesting video .I just have one question ; what if we are supposed to talk about for exemple one of our stories or some experience e.g : to talk about an incident in which you felt courageous. and Thaank you

MEHDI-EL

hello sir.your video about paragraph was great,many useful tips in it.however,i took an English course just for that specifically.that was ok too,yet i still made 4 out of 10 correct of your quiz.oh boy i have to along way haven’t i?

violet74

Thanks Adam.
I wish I was born in America because of the English that I could not speak or write well.

Tammyjang1

First and foremost I would really like to appreciate what you have done.Then, Will I be asking you to make another video on grammars used in this lesson? Such as:
1. Offenders ( who are ) individuals and ..
2.Yet, it is this very .. ( this here I think should not be used )
3. limit anyone BUT the government .. ( the usage of but here is eye-catching. Please explain it)
4. May might “it” change ITS WAY OF DOING BUSINESS ( I think you should not use capital part because of using ” it ” ).
Thank you in advance

Hello Adam,
I’m studying APP and I think to write a paragraph for me it’s the most difficult part. I liked your explanation, but when I have to write I can’t. :(

roalmeida

IT WAS A VERY CLEAR LESSON. IT HELPED A LOT.

THANKS ADAM.

Franklin Paz

Hi Teacher Adam. i am a new student here. it is still difficult for me to write a paragraph.
How can i improve my writing?

Flexible

Hi teacher Adam,

Have a nice time.

My question is how to deal with a new topic, unfamiliar to you or you have no ideas to write about, especially ,when you have no choice just to write.Knowingly, you are in exam and no way for using any other resources to get information.

Thanks

Sofian Al-ameri

Hi Teacher Adam. I am always confused by pronouns. The second sentence in the model paragraph in the video: ‘The governments have the …the law to support them’. The last word ‘them’ in the sentence is referring to the ‘governments’ or the ‘great changes’ which mentioned in the first paragraph?
Thanks

kaisoo

Hi Adam,

How can I start to describe an example one the paragraph? And can I put any mine example?

Thanks.

Lucilia

Hi Adam,
I have a question. Before My question I want to say something. First of all thank you for everything which you taught. Second in your opinion , your prefer is about indent and skip. which should I use for toefl. Thank you again.

Thank you mr.Adam . I have a question for you. In the paragraph. They have acess to means or They have acess to mean.

617 khaled

Thank you for the lecture Adam! I just have a question for you. When I tried to write “flow-bridges” especially at the end of the first body paragraph, it seemed a bit off of the main idea because it is rather more about the next paragraph. If I skip the flow bridge at the end, and just starting next paragraph, would it be too dramatic?

e30n

After the quiz I can understand much better the areas where I need more improvement. Thanks!

J3nnif3r7777

Love you Envied teachers the lesson was totally useful many thanks😊 this is my first time to learn writing skills and I was wondering if you “Mr.Adam” offer an online writing course ?

yama

Adam,
Brilliant video, so helpful!
Do you do skype tutoring? How much would that cost? If you do not do this could you recommend someone to me?!
If you could pm me i would appreciate that immensley. I have also messaged Editproof.com (is that your company also?) I have tried about 6 tutors already and I deperate to find the right tutor
thank you so much

Bradez007

Hi Adam,
I would like to thank you for all the English lessons you have done for us. Much appreciated! I’ve learnt a lot from your videos. All the best!

Sasangi

Without words Adam. Great and difficult lesson. Thanks for your knowledge.

capi007

I think that’s the most difficult part if you’re taking the TOEFL test, like I’m about to do soon. I wish there were a platform where we could get our essays corrected, even that in a general way, like… correct just a few so we see the most common mistakes. Mine would probably be the lack of vocabulary.

MicktF

Also, Adam is one of the best teachers here. I like how he goes straight to the topic and is very clear when talking about something. Thanks!

MicktF

Thank you sir for what you have learned to us .
Thank you very very very much 😊😊

SAMPAL

Hi Adam,
I have been watching your videos quite a while, and I really want to let you know that you have been a big help to me.
I am preparing to take my TOEFL and GRE as part of my MBA admission requirements.
I have a question. What tips could you provide that will help me find ùy ideas during the writing for the TOEFL? I think that the grammar, the vocabulary and following the essay structure will be easy because those are standard. However, having the correct idea will also help you write faster your essay.
Would you mind sharing some tips please?
Thank
Mohamed

odongop

If you’d rewrite the last sentence of the example paragraph “Yet, it is this very question of costs that limits anyone but the government to act against pollution.” how would it be? I am having a hard time understanding what it means… Thank you for your help.

I’m disappointed that I only got 40% on this test.
