1. Introduction: In our guys, many English students make errors and make mistakes in English all the time. And these mistakes in English are made by students of all levels from beginner to advanced. And this glass, we are going to look at various grammatical errors giving you the opportunity to ensure that you are able to remove them from your language and sound more like a native speaker in all guys, there are many common English errors students make in their everyday conversations. In this class, we are going to help you understand these common errors so you can improve your English, improve your accuracy and fluency at the same time, many English students seem obsessed with perfecting their English-learning and become frustrated when they make errors and spend hours trying to correct those errors. Shame and embarrassment bother every one of us from time to time. However, while you might try it to prepare for embarrassing moments, you can never fully prevent them. With a little bit of skill. Those uncomfortable moment can turn into opportunities for learning, Hume or maybe even friendship. As John dried and says, errors like straws at Panda's surface flow. He, who would search for pearls must dive below. This course has been designed to meet the requirements of students whose mother tongue is not English. Its main purpose is to help to correct the common mistakes to which foreign learners of English are liable. The method adopted throughout this work is uniform. All the errors dealt with are singled out for they have to be recognized before they can be corrected, then correct forms are substituted for incorrect ones. Finally, simple explanations are given wherever necessary to justify particular usages. Exercises are sets at the end to ensure that the principals may become firmly fixed in the student's mind. The difficulties tackled are real and they examples are representative of the mistakes commonly made by foreign students of English being the result of observations made over a long period of time. Much Kara has been given to the preparation of this course. Now let's get started. 2. 1 use of the wrong tense part 1: Hello guys, welcome to Part 1 of using the wrong term says, you know, many students, they use the wrong term says when they speaking delish. It makes lots of troubles and communication, variety of different situations and cases. We are going to understand these problems and errors and we are going to correct them. So understanding these correction will help you to actually communicate better and improve your English actually dramatically. Okay, Let's start with number one, using the past tense after did instead off the infinitive without to to ask a question. So don't say Did you went to school? Yes. Survey. This is the mistake many students make. This is wrong. Say Did you go to school yesterday? Did you go to school yesterday? Number two, to make negatives. Don't say I didn't went to school yesterday. This is completely wrong. Don't make this mistake. Say I did not go to school yesterday, I did not go. So we use a simple verb here. Use the prisons infinitive without to, not the past-tense after the auxiliary DID. And the answer to a question beginning with DID is always in the past tense. For example, did you see that picture? Yes, I saw the picture. Or we can say Yes, I did. Okay, so we should keep this in mind and we must understand these kinds of errors that happen many times by English students and foreign students. Using the third person singular after does instead of the infinity without two. So to ask questions, don't say, does that garden or waters the flowers, this is wrong. This is not correct. You should say. Does the Gardner water the flowers not waters. Okay. Because we have does here. And to make negatives, don't say the man doesn't waters that flowers. This is wrong. We should say the man doesn't water the flowers. The man doesn't water the flowers. This is the correct forum. For third, actually, person singular. After the auxiliary does use the infinity without two and not the third person of the present. So the answer to a question beginning with dogs is always in the present tense. Third-person. For example, does he like the cinema? We can't say yes, he likes the cinema or yes, he does. Okay, This is a correct way to speak about third-person singular. Okay, guys, let's go to the next part. Using the third person singular after chem, mass, et cetera, instead of the infinitive without to. Okay. So don't say she can speaks English very well. No, this is wrong. We should say she can speak English very well. She can speak English very well. Not she can speaks English very well. After the verbs can, mosque, may, shall and will use the infinitive without to, and not the third person of the present. This is a very important point and you must actually understand that these points, wrong sequence of tenses. Don't say, Rachel asked me what I am doing. Now. You should say your Rachel asked me what I was doing. When the verb in the main clause is the past, Tim's use the past tones in subordinate clauses. This is another very essential point that many students miss when they use these kinds of tenses. Okay? Perfect. Using wel, l instead of wood or D. In this subordinate clause. Don't say He said that or he said he will come tomorrow. Say he said that he would or or heat to come tomorrow. Okay, This is very important. Using may in a set of mind in subordinate clause. Don't say last Sunday. Actually. All saw told me that she may come say last Sunday. Ailsa told me that she might come. Okay. She might come. So here, made changes to, might, make changes to mind and subordinate clauses when the verb in the main clause in the past simple tense, okay? The conjunction that he's never preceded by a comma. This is a very important point. They can junction that is never preceded by a comma. 3. 2 wrong tense errors part 2: Welcome to part 2 of using the wrong tenses. Actually, in the previous lesson, we got familiar and we understood lots of rock tenses. In this part, we are going to continue actually Parts 1, and we are going to give you some examples of rock tenses used by foreign and English students. And as I told you, it makes lots of troubles and communication and in writing. Okay, Let's start with number nine. Using can instead of could in a subordinate clause. So we use can instead of good. Don't say Ben thought he can win the prize. Say Ben thoughts, he could win the prize. Because the first sentences in the past we should use could hear. So can changes to code in subordinate clause when the verb in the main clause is in the past simple tense, as I told you. And this is a very common mistake made by many students. Using the past simple tense after actually to infinitive. So don't say he try to kick the ball away. No, no, no. He say he tried to kick the ball away. Okay. This is a correct way. So don't use the simple past tense after to. Never, never make this mistake. Using the past simple tense after an auxiliary verb instead of the past participle. This is a very important point. So don't say, I forgot to bring my book. No, this is wrong. We should say, I've forgotten to bring my book. Have or has plus PP. Number 12, using masks or O2 to express a past obligation. So we use master ought to to express a past obligation. So don't say you ought to come yesterday. No, no, no. We should say you ought to have come yesterday. Okay. You ought to have come yesterday. Or you should have come yesterday. You should have come. What do we say it very fast? You should have come yesterday. When we express past obligation, don't use mast and A2 as past tenses to express a past duty which wasn't done. Use the present infinitive without to after, A2 or should to express actually four expressions such as had two, was obliged to. Okay. Next one is number 13, using the present perfect instead of this simple past. And this is the mistake the actually many students make when they speak English. So don't say, I have seen a good film yesterday. No, this is wrong guys don't say this. We should say, I saw a film yesterday because we speak about something in the past, something finished. So use the simple past tense and not the present perfect for an action completed in the past at this star, at this data time. Okay? So when we, when we speak about something that finished in the past, use simple present tense, not present perfect. And this is actually a very common mistake, an error, using the simple past tense instead of the present perfect. So don't say, I saw the Parthenon in Athens. Now this is wrong. Say I have seen the Parthenon of a thumbs. Okay. If we are speaking of the result of the past action rather than the action, we must use the present perfect tens. When somebody says I have seen Parthenon, he or she's not thinking so much of the past act of seeing goods. Okay? And you must understand this very important point. Number 15, using the simple past tense with the recent action instead of the present perfect. So don't say the clocks truck. The clock struck. You should say that clock has truck. If we're speaking of an action just finished, just finished, we must use the present perfect and it's set up this simple past tense. For example, immediately after the clock strikes, we shouldn't say that clocks truck, but the clock has struck. Okay? So here we are speaking of an action just finished and we must use present perfect in sit off simple past tense. And this is another very, very common mistake made by many foreign students. Use the present, simple present instead of the present perfect. Don't say, I'm at, this is cooled to yours. Say, I have been at this school two years. Use the present perfect, not that simple present for an action begun in the past and continuing into the present. For example, I've been at, this is cool to yours means I'm still here. Okay. Don't make this mistake. Please try to understand this. 4. 3 understand the wrong tense part 3: Part number 3 of using the wrong tenses. Okay, let's understand Mar, mistakes and errors. Are you ready? Let's start number 17, using the simple present in setup that present perfect after our sins clause of time. So don't say since he came, we are happy. We should say since he came, We have been happy. The verb after a sense clause of time is generally in the present perfect tense. Do not forget this. Boeing's many English students, they miss this point. The verb after a sense clause of time is generally in the present perfect tense. A very important point. Next one using the simple present instead of present continuous. Don't say, look, two boys fight. No, no, this is wrong. Say look two boys are fighting. This is a correct way to say. We also use the present continuous for the future when something is prearranged or expected with some certainty. For example, Lorna is arriving tomorrow at six. Tom and I are eating out tonight. A very essential and important point. Try to understand your mistakes, please, and try to correct them when you speak English, when you communicate, when you write something in English. All of these points are very important and many English students do not understand them. 18, sorry, 19 to the continuous form of the tense misused. Don't say, I'm understanding the lesson now. Say I understand the lesson now. As a role verbs denoting the state rather than an act. Have no continuous forums like understand, No, believe, like love, belong, prefer, can seize, mean here, c, etc. So keep it in mind that these verbs take no I-N-G and they are not continuous. Using the present continuous for a habitual action and set up this simple presence. Don't say every morning I'm going for a walk. This is wrong. So every morning I go for a walk, we use the present continuous for habitual action. Okay. So the correct one is every morning I'd go for a walk. Use the simple present and not the present continuous to express a prison habitual action. Okay? This is its number 21. We use the verb to use. Actually, we use the verb use for the present habitual action to don't say, I used to get up at six every morning. This is wrong. It should say I get up at six every morning. Okay. Or I'm accustomed to getting up at six every morning. The verb to use doesn't express a habit in the past, in the present. Use means employee, for example, I use a pen to write with, but used to expresses a past state or habit. And it usually refers to some old situation which no longer exists. For example, I used to see him every morning, every day. My father used to play football very well. So we use use to express, to speak about past state or habit and usually refers to some old situation. Okay? Try to understand this. Number 22, using the past continuous for a habitual action instead of the simple past tense. So don't say last year I was walking to school every day. No, we should say last year I walked to school every day. So we should not use past continuous. Okay? Use the simple past tense to express a habit in the past and not the past continuous. We don't use past continuous here. Keep it in your mind. Number 23, using a past tense instead of the past perfect. Don't say the train already left before I arrived. Now we should say the train had already left before I arrived. Use the past perfect when the time of one pass action is more passive than that of another. I mean, put the action which was completed first in the past perfect. And the second action in the past tense. Don't use the present tense and the past perfect in the same sentence, it would be incorrect to say my brother says that he had not gone to the cinema last night. Okay. We was actually passed perfect. To speak about something that happened before another thing in the past. And this is a very common mistake. I think many, many, many students make this mistake. Number 24 using the past perfect and it's set up this simple past tense. Don't say I'd finished the book. Yes, sir. They say, I finished the book here. Survey. Don't use the past perfect unless there is another verb in the past tense in the same sentence. Okay? And don't try to make these kinds of mistakes. Try to understand them. You just need to focus and understand your mistakes that many English students make. 5. 4 What are the wrong tenses in English ? part 4: Hello, Welcome to part number 4. I'm using the wrong tenses. I guess we have learned lots of mistakes and errors made by English symptoms. But this is a last bar, is going to focus on some more important mistakes and errors that are very common. And I'm trying to save you from these problems and mistakes that you sometimes make. Where do you communicate with other English people, native people, or when you write something in English. Okay, Let's start with number 25, using the future in the clause of time instead of their present tense. Don't say, I'll see you when I shall comeback. This is wrong. I say, I'll see you when I come back very simply. I'll see you when I come back. If the verb in the main clause is in the future, the verb in the time clause must be in the present tense. As I said, I'll see you when I come back, I understand perfect 26 using the future in the if clause instead of the present tense. This is another mistake that students make. Don't say if he'll ask me I or II will stay. This is wrong. Say if you ask me, I will stay. If he asks me, I will stay. Use the present tense in the, in the future, conditional in the if-clause, and the future tense in the main clause. But the future tense may be used in an if clause, expressing a request. If you will, if you will, give me some money, I will buy you a drink. Okay? Number 27, using the present tense after as if or as though instead of the past as if or as though. So we should use present tense. So don't say Jan n talks as if she knows everything. You should say. Jan and talks as if she knew everything. So as you can see, we should not use present tense here. So use the past tense after the phrase as if or as though he talks as if he knew everything, means he talks as he would talk if he knew everything. Use their subjective where with the verb to be after as if like, he acts as if he were a rich man. We use where here because we speak, we speak about something imaginary, something that doesn't exist. So it's a kind of hypothesis. Number 28, using the past conditional of wish instead of the present indicative. This is another mistake students make. Don't say, I would wish to know more English. No, no, no, this is wrong. Say I wish I knew more English. I wish that I knew more English. So use the present tense of wish to express a present meaning followed by that clause containing get past tense. Do not forget this point. Next bar 29, using the wrong tense with them. Improbable condition. For example, don't say if he would ask me, I would stay. Now. Say if he asked me I or I would say if he asked me, I would stay. So express an improbable conditioned by the past terms and use the conditional in the main clause. This use of past tense doesn't indicate a time, but degree of probability. Number 30, using a wrong tense with the counterfactual condition. Don't say if he would or he'd have asked me. I would I'd state now say if he had asked me, I would have state if he had asked me, I would have stayed. Experts a counterfactual that didn't happen, conditioned by the past perfect and use the past conditional in the main clause. This use of past perfect doesn't indicate a time but an impossible happening. Keep it in your mind and try to understand this point. This common mistake. Number 31, using the infinitive instead of affinity verb. Don't say sir, to go home to get my book. Say sir, may I go home to get my book? So the infinitive simply names and action without reference to present, sorry to person, number or time. Therefore, it can't make sense without the help of affinity verb number 32, mixing up the tenses, don't say they asked him to be kept them, but he refuses. Say they asked him to be kept them. But here, if use the if you begin with a verb referring to pass time, keep the verb forms in the past. The same rule applies to tenses throughout a composition. 6. 5 misused form part 1 : Hello guys, welcome to this new lesson. Different types of misused forms. Part number 1. And this part we are going to check out some new and different actually misuse forums and mistakes that are very common. And many students actually misunderstand and misuse these kinds of forums. Are you ready? Let's start. Number one, confusion of gender. This is a very common mistakes. Actually. Don't say that door is open. Please shot her. No, no. Say the door is open, please shut it. Shot at. So in English only names of people and animals have gender. In animate things are neuter and take the pronoun it in the singular. This is a very important point, and we must understand this using the possessive S with inanimate objects. This is another common mistake. Don't say harems window is all pen. No. We should say that window off her arm as ball pen. This is a correct way to speak about actually possessive. With animate objects, we usually use the structure of, for example, the door of the car, the leg of the table, the surface of the water, with the names of places on our organization. We can use either London street or we can say this trades of London, Italy's climate, or the climate of Italy. This cools main office or that main office of the school. So we can use both structures and actually either of them are correct. Number 3, using the objective case after the verb to be objective. Don't say it was him. It was him. No, say it was he. It was he. The pronoun coming after the verb to be must be in the nominative case and not in the objective. In a written composition. However, the objective case is now usually used in conversation. For example, it's me, it was him, It was here're, it was them, et cetera. So it's used in conversation. Now are four is using the objective case after that conduction them. This is another common mistake. Don't say My sister is taller than me. No, this is not correct. We should say My sister is taller than I or than I am. So the word then is a conjunction and can only be followed by a pronoun. In the nominative case, the verb coming after the pronoun is generally the meeting ID and delete it. This is another important point that we should understand and we should pay attention to in order to, in order not to make these kinds of mistakes. Number five, using the subject pronoun after between beats. When, don't say it's a secret between you and I. This is a mistake many students make, say it's a secret between you and me. Okay? So between you and me, between is a preposition and all preposition take the objective case. This is a very essential point. Number 6, using an object pronoun before neurons. This is another common mistake. Don't say Haim laughing at her. Who was what made her angry? No. Say he's laughing at her was what made her angry. Okay. He's laughing gets her was what made her angry. So don't use objective pronoun before I draw. And when we use an I-N-G verb as a noun, the preceding noun or pronoun must be possessive. This is another important point, and we must not make these kinds of mistakes. Number seven, using an objective pronoun in a double genitive. In a double genitive, don't say a friend of ham told us the news. Now, say a friend of his told us the news. Okay. A friend of has told us the news. And number 8, the misuse of cell forms. Don't say Michael and myself are here. Now. Say Michael and I are here. My kill and I are here, not myself. Don't make these mistakes and try to understand your problem is when you speak English with native, What do I do You write down something in English because of these mistakes prevent you from communicating. The message. Number 9, misuse of noun, verb homonyms. Don't say Bagchi played a good play off chairs. Now say Becky played a good game of chess. Some verbs and nouns do have the same form and analogous meaning in English. The police, for example, the police fight a hard fight. Heather dreams along vivid dreams. If you lie, the lie will eat you out. That company downsized an African dance. However, we sell them, use the same word like this. Usually we try to avoid it in some way. For example, we should say, she fought a long battle with them. If you lie, he will be cut out. That company didn't African dance. So this is a correct way of using the verbs and nouns. Using the relative pronoun which for persons. So they're all t pronoun which for persons. Which is that this is actually a very big mistakes students make. So don't say, I have a brother which she's at school. No, say I have a brother who is at school we use we should use a relative pronoun, who for people not which only use which as a relative pronoun for animals or things. The right pronoun for actually the lie. The right pronoun to use for people is just who, Who's, and home. That's the following. And then the next lessons, we will explain that preposition. Sorry, we will explain the, actually the relative pronouns who was at home. 7. 6 different types of misused forms part 2: Parts number 2 off different types of misuse forms. Again, In this part two, we are going to investigate and chip count more misused forums. Focus and try to understand your mistakes. Number 11, using watts or which after everything, this is a very common mistake. Don't say, I heard everything wage or what he said. Now, this is wrong. Say I heard everything he said, or I heard everything that he said. So don't use their relative pronouns. Which and what after everything, all something, anything, a lot, a little, or nothing. We can use that after these words or age can be emitted are removed. Do not make this mistake and try to understand this very important 0.12. Who and whom. Don't say, I saw the woman whom you said lives next door. Say I saw the woman who you said lived next door. We rarely use home in modern English, we still use it after prepositions to buy With, After, on, etc. For example, the girl to whom you are speaking gaze Nigerian. We prefer to avoid this nowadays by changing the order of the sentence. Like the girl you're speaking to is Nigerian. You can also use it that in place of who? The girl that you are speaking to ease Nigeria. Now we can understand the differences between who and whom. 12 using Who, home or wage after this superlative instead of that, this is another common mistake made by many students don't say it's the best, which I've seen. Say it's the best that I've seen or it's the best I've seen. Used their relative that not who, whom or which after a superlative. It can, however be emitted. So we can remove it. Sometimes. The same as same that don't say Emilia bought the same bag. That's me. Say Aemilia bought the same bag as me. After this same we use as, unless it's followed by a subordinate clause. In which case? In which case we use that or immediate number 15, using who or what inset up wet etch. Don't say who of the two boys is taller. Is the taller? This is a mistake. Say, which have the two boys? The taller. Okay? Use the interrogative pronoun, which for both people and things. Which who and whom. Who don't say Whom do you think will be chosen? Say, who do you think will be chosen? And whom? Don't say, who do you think I saw yesterday? Say home. Do you think I saw yesterday? Using one? Are there instead of another? This is another common mistake. Don't say Please give me one other book. Please give me one other books. Say please give me, give me, gave me another book. And other is formed from an AND other. But instead of being carried in an another, It's Rodin as one word. And now there are another using this superlative instead of the Kemper too. So don't say John is the tallest of the two boys. No, no, no, no, this is wrong. Say John, is that the taller of the two boys? So use the compared to when people or things are Kemper. So we should always use that compared to for number 19 using from after that comparative instead of that, this is another mistake. Don't say Amy is taller from her brother. Actually, this mistake is done by many students because they think in their own language. They don't think in English. If you just think in English, say Amy, he's taller than her brother. Taller than her brother. Not from her brother. Adjectives or adverbs in the comparative, our followed by, then, not buy from. Okay, keep this point in your mind, police number 20, using the comparative and sit out this superlative. So don't say Cairo is the larger city in Africa now, because we are speaking about superlative form, I guess. So we say Cairo is the largest city in Africa. So we should use the superlative. When more than two persons or things are Kemper. 8. 7 missed forms in English part 3: Parsed number three, different types of misuse forums. Okay guys, we got familiar with different kinds of misuse forums. Let's continue. Let's understand more common mistakes. Are you're ready, Let's start using the more inset of most. Don't say the more people will agree with me. Now, this is a very common mistake. Say most people will agree with me. This is a correct for most people will agree with me and use most dot. The more When you mean the majority of a note, use the more in sentences like the more we write the half here our tutor becomes. And these kinds of sentences we can use, the more 2002 using more good or more bat instead of better or worse. This is another mistake, actually very common. And foreign students because they think in their own native language, they make these kinds of mistakes. So don't say this one ball, this one looks more good than that. Say, this one looks better than that, better. The adjective good and bad have irregular forms of comparison. So good is better and best. For bad, we say worse, it's comparative and superlative is worst. So please do not make these mistakes. Number 23, using home instead of at home. This is the question of many English students, the misuse of these kinds of forums. So don't say in the afternoon, I stay home, stay in the afternoon, rice, stay at home. So here's the phrase at home to mean in the house with such verbs as calm or go. No preposition as necessary. For example, he wants to go home. He wants to go home. Using from instead of a one-off or a mine. Don't say she is from the nicest girls. I know, No, this is wrong. Say she is one of the nicest girls. I know. Avoid using from, in this sense of one-off or Amman. Okay? Number 25, using the passive infinitive to be past participle instead of the active to infinitive. This is another mistake. Try to understand this common mistake. Don't say English isn't easy to be learned. Now, say English isn't easy to learn. The adjectives, easy, difficult, hard, heavy, good, et cetera, are generally followed by the active infinitives. Remember, active infinitives, not passive infinitive. Using an intransitive verb in the passive for don't say she was disappears from the house. Say she disappeared from the house. As a rule, don't use intransitive verbs like appear, seem, become, consist in the passive form. Intransitive verbs don't have an objects. In transitive verbs don't have an object. Number 27. Mixing up one form of the verb with another. For example, don't say it's better to enjoy yourself when you are young her other than wasting time worrying about the future, say it's better to enjoy yourself when he Arjan then to waste time worrying about the future. Why I will tell you, don't make swan form of the verb with another. If the first verb in comparison is the infinitive, the second must also be the infinitive, so we should use to infinitives here. Next, one, wrong sequence of moods. Don't say if you would do me this favor, I would be grateful to you. Say if you would do me this favor, I would be very grateful to or if you will do me this favor, I will be very grateful to you. Okay. Number 29, the unrelated participle, don't say being in a hurry. That door was left open. Say being in a hurry, he left the door open. Tag character provide the logical subject relating to the participle phrase in this sentence, given the logical subject to being in haste is, hey, not that door. Number 30, the question phrase, isn't it misused here? Don't make this mistake. So don't say he played well yesterday, isn't it? Say he played well, yes, certainly didn't. He used the question of phrase, isn't it? Only when the preceding statements consist, sorry, contains the word is it is a hot day, isn't it? This is a correct way. It's a hot day. Isn't it? Perfect. 9. 8 Understand the misused forms part 4: Hello guys, welcome to part number 4 are different types of misused forums. Okay, I'm going to explain some more misuse forums and some common mistakes that students make when they speak and communicate in English. Number 31, misuse of the Durand to express purpose. Don't make this mistake, please focus. Don't say, I come here for learning English. Say I come here to learn English, to learn English. So express purpose by using the infinitive, not the Durand, don't make this mistake. This is a very common mistake. I have seen many students make this mistake. So for purpose, use the infinitive, not the Durand. Yes or no in answers to negative questions, question, didn't choose c, the gain, and the answer should be yes. That is, I saw it and know that is I didn't see it. In answering a negative questions. Say yes if the answer is an affirmative information and know if it's a negative. That is answer without any regard to their negative form of the question. 33 using a double negative, don't say She says she's not F right up nobody. No, no, no, please don't make this mistake. Say She says she's not afraid of antibody. She's not afraid of anybody. Or say she's, she says she's afraid of nobody. In English, two negatives are equal to an affirmative statement. Focus on try to keep this in your mind. No, two negative in one sentence. You should avoid using to negative words in the same clause when not is used. Non changes to any, nothing to anything, nobody to anybody. No one to anyone. Know where to anywhere, uh, neither a nor changes to either. Okay. Thirty-four, using one time or two times instead of once or twice. This is another common mistake. So don't say I was absent one time or two times. Now, say I was absent once or twice. Number 35, using a day, it's it's raw instead of one day, et cetera. Don't say a day they went sightseeing in Florence. Now, say one day they went sightseeing in Florence using one not a or N with day, night, morning, afternoon and evening when the one means on certain honest certain day 36 using the other day instead of next day. This is another mistake. Don't say David slept well and was better than the other day. Say David slept well and was better than next day. The next day, not the other day. Using 1.5 instead of half past one. So don't say listens began at 8.5. This is not correct. Say lessons begin at half past eight using as usually instead of as usual. So don't say as usually he lived his pen at home. This is a wrong. Say. As usual, he lived his pen at home. And as usual means like all ways. Number 39, using according to my opinion, instead of in my opinion, don't make this mistake and don't say according to my opinion, she's right. No. Say in my opinion, she's right. This is a correct way to speak about opinion. Using at the end, instead of in the end. Don't say at the end they reach to this city. No. Say in the end. They your rage to the CD in the end. In the end means finally are at last, but at the end means at the farthest point or parts. This is a difference between in the end and at the end. 10. 9 Learn the most common part 5misused forms : Welcome to part number five, different types of misused forums. And this part again, we are grant to explain some common mistakes and different kinds of misuse forums. And it's better for you to focus on understand these mistakes in order to improve your English. Using the reason is because instead of the reason is that, don't say the reason is because I believe it many students make this mistake. They say, We should say the reason is that I believe in the word racism denotes cause. Therefore, the reason is because is a repetition. That correct EDM is that reason is that the reason is that number 42, using a cons for instead of the country, many students do not understand the difference between a country and that country. Don't say I spend my holidays in a country, say I spend my holidays in the country. A contrary is a place like France, India or Egypt. But they're contrary is a rural area where there are no towns or cities. This is a difference between a country or the country number for disparate using f and set up whether Don't say I ask powerful if he was going say I asked powerful whether he was going to wear or not is implied. Use whether not if unlike whether if doesn't expect a yes or no reply, using any 42 instead of either. Don't say any of these two books is good to say. Either of these two books is good. Either means one or the other of two. But any means one of three or more. This is a difference between any NP there are in these kinds of sentences. Using likes me instead of I like. So don't say this in ML likes me very much. Say this, I like this cinema very much. And the cinema we can say the cinema appeals to me. This is also correct and means I like the scene. I'm very much the senior appeals to me using neither or instead of neither nor. This is another common mistake. Try to understand and focus and don't make this mistake. Unfortunately, I see many students, they make these kinds of mistakes. So don't say Sarah speaks neither English or French. Say sorrow speaks neither English nor French. Remember, or neither must be followed by NOR and nots by or, and either is followed by or. For example, she speaks either she drinks either orange juice or apple juice. So either comes with are neither CMS will leave. Nor number 47 using both in a negative sentence instead of neither, don't say both of them didn't go to school today, you know, you should say neither of them went to school today. Neither of them went to school today. Remember, change both into neither in a negative symptoms and use a positive for using also or two in a negative statement instead of either, don't say Joe hasn't come also, or to say Joe hasn't come either. Okay. So we should use either in a negative symptoms. Don't say, I don't like red and orange. I want the blue orange. And in a negative sentence instead of no, don't, don't make these kinds of mistakes. You should say. Actually, I don't like red or orange. I want the blue one. Okay, So using and in a negative sentence is, or this is a common mistake. And we must understand this. So say, I don't like her red or orange, I want the blue one. Using tail instead of before or when. I don't say I'd reach to this cool teal till the rain started. Say I reached the school before the rain star beds. Or I reach this cool when the rain started. 11. 10 non English expressions part 1 : Hello guys, welcome to part number 1 of non-English expressions.
