Our focus today is on those little grammatical errors we make when speaking English.
Some 'English' words when used by people with great accents sounds correct but if you check well, the obvious would be exposed.
1. He is lacking behind❎
He is lagging behind✔
2. Okon is a gateman❎
Okon is a gate keeper✔
3. We waved our hands at her ❎
We waved to 'her'✔
4. Don't say/call........................Say/call it
Never you say: Ear piece••••••••••••••••Ear Phone
5. Escape goat ....................................A scape goat
6. I have ten sheeps-....................................-I have ten sheep
7. Mother in laws-----Mothers in law
8. Plate number-----...................-- Number plate
Now we have touched other common mistakes we make, let's focus on the topic for today.
Today's about proper grammar. I'll show you the correct word to reply to a "THANK YOU"
Why should you learn proper grammar?
When it comes to English Language, People judge based on how someone writes and speak. Taking the time to follow the rules of Standard English in your formal writing and speech allows you to present yourself in the best possible light.
There's a way you will reply someone, even though it's not bad it makes the person feel a bit inferior. So instead of saying "You're welcome" to someone who just said "Thank you", just say "Anytime".
Trust me, the person will feel much better.
Let's see an example
Emeka: 'Thank you' for helping me out today
It's a more relaxing response.
Hope you've learnt something, stay safe.
