    It’s the first time I leave a message and it is to Adam. The only way I could get into it was this way. I am teacher in Brazil and my students and I have been watching the engvid vídeos a lot. The ones I have already presented to them were Ronnie, Adam and also REbecca – we haven’t checked the other teacher yet, but there will be a time to do so. I really would like to have a bigger space to write or to change ideas, suggestions, etc. Is this the only way?

mahmoud33

Thanks a lot!!!

benzalez

Adam, I noticed that you used twice the form: not only… but also
It is correct in the way you used it???

benzalez

    Hi Benzalez,

    I’m pretty sure I did use the expression correctly. Not sure what you’re asking, to be honest. Can you make it more specific?
    Not only does subject(1) do A, but subject(1 or other) also does B.–Subject does two things, or two subjects do one thing. But different contexts will explain the use better.

    Let me know if this helps?

    Adam

Thank you kindly!

egirardelli

    Hi Egirardelli,

    This is the subjunctive voice:

    It is important (that) he arrive on time.

    The doctor recommended (that) I be hospitalized.

    It is a specific structure. Look for it in your grammar book. if you want to know more, you can also check out Alex’s lesson on this site.

    Adam

      It is important that he arrive on time or he arrives on time?. You are a great English teacher.

GREAT LESSON! THANKS A LOT SIR!

sona123

Question 9 – I thought that is no connection between the first and the second paragraph, because in the first paragraph the last two phrases are about what we must to do(take responsibility, educate our children). But probably the connection is with the first proposition – climate change affects all nations (The second paragraph – moreover affects individuals and businesses)

arinamg

    Hi Arinamg,

    Excellent point you make here. And you are right; I would reintroduce the main topic to begin the second paragraph and add another perspective. This way I am still adding ideas, but reminding the reader of what this essay is about, climate change. If I wanted to add to things we should do, but focus on one idea, I would probably use ” a third action we can take,…” “another thing we can do is…”

    Good stuff :)

    Adam

I have enjoyed this lesson. Thanks Adam !

oscargutierrez502

Excellent explained. I wish I had had such a teacher when I was young. Do you workout the quiz by yourself?

daiki14

Thanks a lot Mr Adam

izzyazima

Hi Adam,

May you please explain for me why you wrote ” to transition”on the board? I was excepting a verb after the preposition to , otherwise you put a noun. It sounds a bit weird for me. Thank you for you help.

dora86

    You reminded me a question. I learned once (for two weeks) Spanish, but from English book, and there was written something about “what” and “why”. I don’t remember what that exactly was, but I try to give two examples:

    “What is this used for?” vs “Why is this used for?”

    Can we substitute “what” with “why” or vice versa? Maybe this example isn’t adequate, but I have that feeling there is something else I should know about this.

    morfik

      Hi Morfik,

      You can ask “what is this used for?” and “why is this used?” (no for in the second). These are actually two different questions. The first asks the purpose of something (i.e. to what end), and the second asks the reason for it. Two different this, but quite commonly used interchangeably.

      Adam

    Hi Dora86,

    There are many nouns in English that don’t have a verb form but can be used as a verb. I explained to transition means to bridge. Bridge is also a noun that can be used as a verb. What might seem weird to you is ‘-ion’ ending. That is a bit rare to see, but it happens. Here are a few words that are the same as verb and noun. Hope it helps.

    audition, caption, condition, fashion, mention, etc.

    Adam

I was expecting*
your help*

dora86

thank you….

sumananand

Thank you Adam , very useful lesson . I got 9 correct of 10 .

renanfernandes

Hi, please help me with pronunciation: “focus”.

juliagiovannetti1

    Hi Julia,

    FO sounds like toe, Joe, low, snow,…

    the ‘u’ in CUS sounds like ‘i’ in fist, list. But it’s a pretty short sound so it sounds like ‘kiss’ but said quickly.

    Hope that helps

    Adam

Very interesting. Thanks!!

spous67

useful lesson,thanks

Many thanks, bro.

bilgenu

Adam,
Could you make a lesson about expression “… as well”? English native speakers often use it at the end of the sentence. Sometimes it is hard to understand.

My name is Peter.

piotrproc

    Hi Peter,

    as well means too, or also. We can use it at the end of a sentence just like too or also. “I want to go too= I want to go as well.” Even when you see it after a comma , as well., it works in the same way.

    Does that help?

    Adam

      oh~~~ I see.
      I have often confused as well and also.
      Thanks~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Adam^^

      ea9436

Hello from London & thank you.

wojtek45

I am very confuse in preposition and conjuncton as well.
It is my humble request to Mr. Alex. Please teach me. How to use preposition and conjuction as well.

mohdkhalid88

This is first time to me…But i’ve enjoyed and learned..thanks adam…

wakeelahmedchanna23

What did you mean by “…to do so”?
I looked it up on Cambridge dictionary but I didn’t get the real meaning.
Thanks

henry19

    Hi Henriqe,

    The confusion might be with the word ‘so’ at the end. Look at this example:

    I want to learn to play the guitar. But to do so would require more time than I have available.

    so in this sentence is used to point to something that was just mentioned before. To do so means to do what was just mentioned before. In this case, to do so = to learn to play guitar.

    Does that help?

    Adam

good lesson, pretty useful thanks a lot…

robinhmorph91

I got 100!!
Thank you for the lesson!

rodrigo837

This lesson difficult for me

zina918

thank you very much , really i need this lesson

madawoud

Hello again, I have three questions:

1. How to use “in addition to”? For instance how to rewrite the example from the vid:

“His laziness caused the company to perform badly last quarter. Moreover, his attitude toward the board has put his job in jeopardy.”

We can say: “In addition, his attitude toward the board has put his job in jeopardy.”

But when we want to use “in addition to”, we have to refer to “his laziness”, right? So, it would be:

“In addition to his laziness, his attitude toward the board has put his job in jeopardy.” — is that correct? (I think I just get it, but I write it anyway.) :)

2. “Which” and “which one” — For example: “Which one of them is better?” and “Which of them is better?” Do they mean the same, and can we omit “one”?

3. “play in games” or “play games” — I’m not sure how to use “play” properly in this case. If I want to ask my friend: “Do you want to play…” should I use “games” or “in games”, or “Do you want to play…” “this” or “in this”.

morfik

    1. Yes, you are correct. If you add the ‘to’ you must refer back, because that is what the ‘to’ is doing, it is referring.

    2. They basically mean the same. You can omit the ‘one’ though usually when we have only 2 things, we add the ‘one’ to specify, “which one is better?”

    3. Usually we’d use play games. But… Michael Jordan played in some of the best games in NBA history. In this case we talk about actual competitions, (usually pro sports.) play a game, the game itself. Play in a game, the sporting action. Hope that makes sense.

    Adam

      So, basically “play in” means participation in an event? I mean “I play hockey”, but “I’ll play in a hockey tournament that will be held in my town next month.”, right?

      morfik

        yup :)

        Adam

Awesome explanation, it was easy to understand, thanks.

josedelgado

So important to know it

hassan1abdul1samad

Thank you very much Mr, Adam. I really appreciated!.
It was useful and practical lesson.

شكراً = Thanks by Arabic :)

hany1979

It’s always a pleasure to watch these useful videos. However, I’ve got a question. Sometime I see the construction ‘there is’ with ‘too many’ eg. ‘There’s too many cars on the road.’ Is it right?

dmitriy1986

    Hi Dmitriy,

    No, grammatically it is not correct. However, it is quite common to hear it. You probably won’t see it written as much though. The reason many people say it though is that it is easier to say there’s than there’re.

    Hope that helps

    Adam

Hi Adam,
I want to ask you a question. A very common question for job is “why do you want to work for this company?” and “What is your motivation?”
Could you kindly tell me what is the best answer for the same.
Bless you dear.

sajjadafzal

    Hi Sajjadafzal,

    These answers would take to much space here, but to answer the first one well, make sure you research the company well and highlight their best features in your answer. They want to see that you know who they are and are genuinely interested rather than just be looking for a job. they also want to see that you came prepared. For the second, be honest. Say that you hungry for success and your dreams motivate you.

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

Hi, Adam. I’ve just watched Emma’s “Writing in English – Comma Splices” video, and I think there is small error in the sentence “So the internet…”. Comma before “it also makes” should be replaced by period or semicolon. Shouldn’t it?

hiubhp

    Hi Hiubhp,

    I looked at the quiz and video but didn’t see that sentence. Where is it?

    Adam

      Hi. I’m sorry for confusion. Sentence, that I mean exists in your video. It appears about 6:13. There is: “So the internet not only helps people connect to friends and family anywhere in the world, it also makes it cheap to do so”. According to Emma’s lecture it should be:
      1) “So the internet not only helps people connect to friends and family anywhere in the world. It also makes it cheap to do so”.
      or
      2) “So the internet not only helps people connect to friends and family anywhere in the world; it also makes it cheap to do so”.

      hiubhp

Adam, hello again, I have two examples to discuss. Lately I watched some episodes of “Friends”, and there were many questions like these below:

What did you just do?
What the hell did you do?

The questions were said immediately after a situation occurred. Why is there simple past and not present perfect? I remember the scene from “Star Wars”, the moment when Mace Windu was killed by Anakin Skywalker, and after this, the killer said: “What have I done?” What is the difference between those three questions?

morfik

    :)

    Technically, it should be the pres perf, but again, in everyday English, people let this stuff go. More importantly, did you notice the tone these questions were asked in? That’s where the meaning comes from I’m guessing.
    Let me know

    Adam

      Yes, I noticed that. I mean, when Anakin Skywalker killed Mace Windu, he said “What have I done?” as, I think, he really regretted what he did. And also the deed has bad consequences. I can think about some RPG games in one of which some people freed those bloodthirsty creatures, I mean dragons :), and now the beasts will destroy all the world. They also could say “What have we done?”

      Maybe I’m wrong, but I think that “What have I/you/we done?” is often said when something bad happens. In the RPG example, no one actually needs/wants to know why the dragons fly at the sky (maybe they already know this). But they surely know what that means. :)

      When someone says “What the hell did you do?”, I think he wants to know what actually happened. I don’t know, but it’s the only one thing that comes to mind. :)

      morfik

        You’re right, but it’s also clear that the person asking the question knows you’ve done something bad. It’s more for emphasis.

        Please don’t hold it against me, but I’ve actually never seen Star Wars :(

        Adam

          Don’t worry. I’m not so big fan of Star Wars, I mean, I saw it once or twice, that’s all, and I remembered the scene. :)

          morfik

Thank you very much indeed.

dmitriy1986

you are real man Adam!

hkn48

Thank you so much Mr Adam. Please can you help me? Can you explain how I can use those complex connectives but can you explain in a simpler form please? Thank you :)

houdah

    Hi Houdah,

    Adam

dejyunhou

    Hi Jyun,

    It means that it might be grammatically correct, but in terms of style (aesthetics) it doesn’t really work well.

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

      So does it mean that we don’t use this word that way? Just because of habit of use?

ahmedelbaz

Thanks Adam, a very good lesson.
The 3rd question of the test is very useful so as to understand the correct use of these transitions. What about the correct word to use in that phrase instead of ‘furthermore’? Could ‘too’ at the end of the sentence be correct? (Facebook has a lot of fun games too).Cheers

Hi Adam,
Is it fine if you can use the same transition in the same paragraph?

For example: IN ADDITION to being a good person, she is one of the kind, supportive mother……. IN ADDITION, I described her as being a wonderful mom.

I understand the transition words but I’m having a difficulties on how to use them well.

Henrique82

Hi Adam, I don’t really understand the answer of question No. 9. Would you please explain it more for me? Thanks

lynnieana

    The above paragraph uses ‘furthermore’ already. Is …it correct to begin the next paragraph with ‘furthermore’?The answer is
    Yes, but it is not recommended because it is stylistically not attractive. Why? Because you have used furthermore in the last paragraph, begin with furthermore again is a redundancy, is possible but preferably use another transition like moreover or in addition to…

Hello. Thanks for the lesson. Could I ask a question?

If we want to go from one idea to another but not connected with the first one what connection word or phrase can we use?

For example:
“Social networks are great for business because they allow you to connect to many people.”
“Social networks have a lot of fun games…..”

Hi, Adam. Could you please make a video explaining the difference between avenge and revenge, reserve and preserve, audience and viewers and spectators,…As a non-native English speaker, I am confused with these and don’t know which word to use in a specific situation. Thanks in advance. Looking forward to watching new lesson videos from you.

waynedo

Hi, Adam,

I have a question on the concept of connected ideas. What do you mean by saying that? I feel more confused. When I used to write my essays, for the second and third arguments, I used these transition words you mentioned. For example, if the topic is the benefits of the social media. I will have 3 arguments. One is that it makes us make more foreign friends. Another one is that it provides a cheaper way for us to communicate with our families and friends. Third one will be it keep us updated about what happens around you every day. Are these are three connected arguments? Before, I just used moreover and furthermore at the start of the second and third arguments paragraphs. Thanks.

I will wait your answer. Thank you in advance.

in 5th question you already used furthermroe transition word. Isn’t it incorrect to use ”another reason” after furthermore? It is something which sounds repetitious and unnecessary.

Hello Adam,

First of all, thanks a lot for the all excellent lessons you have. In the third question of the quiz where “Furthermore” is used incorrectly, should we use “Besides” instead or just a simple “Also”?

I love to learn English, first of all because, in general, I enjoy discovering new languages: it gives me a feeling of intellectual, aesthetic, and “musical” pleasure. It’s also interesting and fun to see the mysterious links between language and psychosociology, or to recognize the similarities between terms from a tongue to another, and the word’s origins and constructions. Furthermore, English is a wonderful key to worldwide international communication, and that can create so many opportunities of meeting new people and beginning great relationships either in the personal or the professional field. Another reason I’m so happy to be learning English is that it gives me access to a huge amount of cultural material: articles, books, movies and series that haven’t been translated in my mother tong, and which can be highly worth knowing! Moreover, to me, learning English is exciting and motivating because I can reasonably hope to be able to speak it quite well one day. That is due to the fact that there are many resources in the internet, and many people available for English conversation. That makes it easy and exhilarating at once! You see, when I do something, I like to do it fully, deeply, and that’s possible with learning English. It’s not as frustrating as learning Hindi, for example. And that’s thanks to people like you guys! Your videos and your quizzes are so helpful! So thank you sooo much to all the team!

6.
(Many students choose to study abroad because of the life-lessons that travel provides. This way they not only improve their academic skills, but their personal and cultural skills as well.)

About this question number 6, i tkink personaly that they have talked a little bit about the advantages of studying abroad, therefore the second idea should be about the difficulties of learning abroad; otherwise, is like developping the same idea.

Hi Adam
One question I have that how can I start my body paragraph the way that attract the reader and say my first reason of thesis very well.

MustafaNajimyar1

Hi Adam
I am Moni from India.After watching this lesson,I opened dictionary to see sample examples and check my understanding regarding ‘Moreover’.I have few questions.

1)”The government officials who will decide when to reopen their states are facing competing pressures, moreover.”
As you discribed,there must be two ideas,but here there is only one sentence/idea.Where is the connection of two ideas? And how to use ‘Moreover’ at the end of a sentence?

2) a)”The crash, moreover, was an “unavoidable accident,” the company’s attorneys said”
How to use moreover within a sentence?why here is only one idea? Is there another idea begining of the sentence that dictionary doesn’t provide us?
Thanks in advance.🙏.

Sk Monirul

hello teacher
I read two books(focus on vocabulary 1&2) and grammar and books such as collins and Longman about reading, but
I can’t write well even one paragraph. if it is possible for you, guide me.
i see your lesson that’s very interesting. i have to become ready for IELTS.

Fateme1

claude faos

Thanks a lot!

AndreMikha

Thanks a lot for your efforts here and at your channel , I’ve been searching for such a lesson for long :) , and I didn’t know that we can use “Moreover” and “Another reason” in the same sentence.
Do we have always to put comma after these transitions and to use them capitalized after full-stop.
