  • Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. In this lesson, you'll have a chance to review eight common

  • English errors. So, let's see how you do.

  • The first one: "Today morning I woke up late." So, what's wrong with that? There is actually

  • something wrong with each and every one of these. I'll tell you that in advance; there's

  • no... There are no tricks here. Okay? So, what's wrong with that sentence?

  • "Today morning I woke up late." Well, it should be:

  • "This morning". Okay? We don't say: "Today morning".

  • We say: "This morning".

  • Number two: "What's the different?" What's the different? Well, that's wrong too, because

  • "different" is an adjective. What you want to use here is the noun.

  • So, what's the noun of this word?

  • "Difference". "What's the difference?" Okay? This is a really common error, so make

  • sure you don't make this one.

  • Next one: "I met John two years before." Okay? What's wrong with that? Well, over here,

  • we can't say: "I met John two years before." We can say: "I met two... I met John two years

  • ago." All right? If you use the word "before", then you have to say before something. "Before

  • I graduated". Okay? "Before I got married", or whatever. But you can't use "before" by

  • itself. So the proper word there is "ago". "I met John two years ago."

  • Next one: "This is a six-months course." That sounds almost okay, but it's not okay. So

  • the mistake here is

  • with the "s". When we use this expression, it becomes... The entire

  • expression becomes an adjective for the noun "course". So we should say:

  • "This is a six-month course.",

  • "This is a million dollar contract." And so on. Okay? That's another... Each of

  • these is a different element of grammar, different aspect of grammar, and so on.

  • Next, number five: "Thank you. I really enjoyed." What's wrong with that? Well, the problem

  • is here. "Enjoyed" is a reflexive verb, so you would need to say: "I really enjoyed myself.",

  • "I really enjoyed myself.", "He enjoyed himself.", "She enjoyed herself.", "We enjoyed ourselves.",

  • "They enjoyed themselves." Okay? So there are certain reflexive verbs in English, and

  • we need to use them correctly. That's one of them. Very common one.

  • Okay, number six: "Did you loose your cellphone?" What's wrong with that? I helped you a little

  • bit by actually showing you where the error is. So, many people make this error. This

  • is actually a spelling mistake. You should be spelling the word this way.

  • "Did you lose your cellphone?" "Loose" is an adjective which means not tight,

  • and "lose" is the opposite

  • of "find". Okay? "Did you lose your cellphone?" Also, the pronunciation is "lose" and not

  • "loose".

  • Next one: "This is an academic course.", "This is an academic course." So, what was wrong

  • with what I said there? Okay? So, what was wrong was my

  • pronunciation of that.

  • So many people mispronounce this word. It is not "academic". It is "academic".

  • The stress is on the middle.

  • Academic. "This is an academic course.", "This is an academic program." Okay? So, if...

  • In case you make that mistake. I'm not saying you do. In case you do,

  • make sure you correct it.

  • Last one: "Yes, I have a free time."

  • Is that...? What's wrong there? What's going on? Okay,

  • here. We don't need to say: "A free time". We need to say: "Free time", because this

  • is a... Time is an uncountable noun.

  • Now, each one of these examples represents a different aspect of grammar. So, how can

  • you possibly learn all of them? Well, I'll give you two easy ways to help you out. One

  • is to go to our website:, because there, we have currently I think more than

  • 700 lessons on different aspects of English grammar and of English in general for exams,

  • for writing, speaking, all kinds of things. And by watching them, you can find the lessons

  • that you actually need. And the other thing is that we also have... I've written actually

  • a resource which might help you, which shows 50 such common errors that people make in

  • English, and that might help you out as well. Okay?

  • So, I hope you did well, and I hope you continue to do better and better in English.

  • All the best with your English. Bye for now.
