I have already written four posts where I have shared my experiences regarding how I polished my English skills. I am always there for you whenever you need any sort of help. The post is further going to help you in your aim of speaking as well writing in English.
In all the earlier posts, I have been trying my level best to tell you intricacies as well in order to help you further.
Grammar is regarded to be the backbone without which you possibly can’t polish the English skills. Hence, make sure that you are well versed with the tenses.
English is all about learning the intricacies. One of the most common mistakes which people commit while making the use of “older” and “elder”
Both the term means that you are younger to the other person. However, both of them are used in different ways. For example,
- He is older to me (correct)
- My brother is older to me (Wrong)
Now, I am explaining to you.
We use “elder” with those people who have blood relations with us. While for others we use “older”
I am going to give you another example in order to help you understand in a better way.
- I am elder to my cousin brother. (correct)
- My friend’s father is older to him. (correct)
Hope, you have got the difference between the two.
Another most common mistake which people mistake pertaining to 12o’ clock
If it’s day time, then we will be saying, It’s 12 noon and if its 12 at night, then it’s 12 midnight.
One simply cannot say 12 am or pm.
I will reach there by 12 noon. (correct)
I will return home by 12 midnight. (correct)
One of the other mistakes which we make at the time of examinations
We usually say,
I have given the examination (wrong)
We should say
I have taken the exam (right)
Even though, it’s literal meaning is totally opposite to what we want to say. Isn’t it?
These are few of the most common mistakes which we do. I am going to tell you more in the other posts.
- Due to the rampant use of internet, do take out time to read online newspapers in English since it will give you enough boost.
- How can you forget to go through the posts of renowned bloggers? This is another sure cut exercise by which you will become more confident in your approach.
It is not possible for me to explain each and every tense, but in the event if I get any special request, then I am surely there for you.
Do, give me feedback if you want to say any thing or looking to understand any new thing as well.
