I know for an ESL learner, all you want to do is to speak perfectly, but so often when you listen to a native speaker speak, they really don’t speak with the correct vocabulary usage. And often they don’t actually know that the words they are saying are in fact wrong.
So let me set the record straight here and give you ten really common errors that native speakers make:
What they say
What it should be
|2||whip cream||whipped cream|
|4||far be it for me||far be it from me|
|5||ice tea||iced tea|
|7||in regards to||with regards to|
|8||on the same token||by the same token|
|9||I’ll think on it||I’ll think about it|
So now tell me if you know the correct ways to say these phrases:
…a whole n’other thing….
So go on tell me the correct answers! I dare you!
