How I polished my English skills – Fifth post


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.

For example,

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.

    1. Yes sure,
      Here it is the conversation with the word “could you”
      Hope you like it as well,

      Customer – I have tried searching for the best “Sherwani” everywhere, but in vain. Could you help me find it really quick as I have to wear it tomorrow?
      Sales Assistant – Yes sure, let me know your size
      Customer – Could you simply know from my personality as my measurement seems to mis-match considering the fact I have put on weight of late?
      S.A – Could you give me 5–10 minutes?
      C- Yes sure
      S.A – Here it is, try these two.
      C- (After wearing them)- Second one looks perfect. Yes, this is the one, I was searching for a long time. It is the best possible “Sherwani” in terms of design, color and fit. Could you tell me its final price after discount?
      S.A – 15k
      C- Could you offer any further discount?
      S.A – Sir, not possible, as I am already telling you after discount.
      C- No problem, here it is.

  1. Sir can you please make a small paragraph of daily routine of my brother. It should be simple, innovative and should be in simple present tense. Use of words like normally and usually should be there.

    1. Ok, here it is

      Following a healthy routine is the best way to lead a systematic life. Let me tell you about what I usually do in my 24 hours of journey

      Well, I normally wake up at 5:30 o’ clock after after getting fresh, go to attend morning prayer. Followed by going for morning walk for an hour or so

      Later on, this is the time for me to greet my family members and after taking bath, my mother usually has breakfast ready

      I have it and usually go to attend my classes by 8.

      I normally study hard as I know success comes for those who hone their skills and involve their dedication with greater force.

      By 2o’ clock I return and my mother has lip smacking cuisine ready for me. Life is usually so beautiful more so, if we have lovely parents whom we equally respect. Isn’t it?

      After attending another prayer of afternoon, I normally sleep for a while to go for tuition. I usually take out time to revise the subjects which are taught in the class. My teacher is normally very satisfied with my performance.

      By 8o’ clock, I usually return home, keeping in mind my prayer timings for the obvious reason that Almighty has given my beautiful parents, teachers and so many luxuries of life and I normally have to thank him for this.

      Well, after taking dinner , I usually sleep by 10o’ clock.
