After teaching English as a foreign language for a bit, I’ve come to know what the most common mistakes are (at least for Italian and Spanish speakers). Here’s my selection of the ten most recurring ones:
#1 to ask
to someone (to do something / something)
to him to call you.
to James that question.
Notice that the same mistake seems to be frequent when using ‘tell’: I told
to him to go away.
too’ instead of ‘me neither’
A: I don’t like peas.
If the sentence you want to agree with is negative, you have to use ‘neither’. You could also say ‘I don’t either’ or “Neither do I’. Use ‘Me too’ (or ‘I do too’ or ‘So do I’) when agreeing with a positive statement.
since‘ instead of ‘for’
I’ve lived here
since for five months.
