  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 314 . The title of today's lesson

  • is "When Enough is an Adjective Place It Before the Noun" or at least

  • most of the time it's probably better. So let's look at the note. When enough is

  • used as an adjective, it usually goes before the noun , and it's often used in

  • sentences that begin with there is or there are.

  • All right. So let's look at some examples. The amount of seats are not enough for

  • the guests. It's a little awkward. It's not quite proper. Would it be understood ?

  • Yeah. It would be understood. It wouldn't be confusing. A westerner would

  • understand this if you said it this way, but let's look at the check here. This

  • would be more proper. This is more correct this is more common to say there are not

  • enough seats for the guests very simple. But the amount of seats are not enough

  • for the guests it's a little ... it's a little awkward . It's not quite right.

  • It's not the best English. Even though it would be understood. The same thing with all

  • these examples here. The money is not enough for a trip. I don't know you know,

  • sometimes in an awkward way well we're thinking it might come out this way. But

  • it's much better to say there's not enough money for a trip, very very clear,

  • very concise, very short. That's the better way to say it. Or again with the X.

  • The time is not enough for us to visit her. Again all these would be understood,

  • but it's better to say it this way. There's not enough time to visit her.

  • Very common. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your

  • time. Bye-bye.
