Improve your English. Practise using -s.

Apr 04, 2012

Hello again! Ready to learn some English?

Obviously know quite a few teachers who have to correct mistakes that students make everyday. They often say that errors with -s, with plurals or with uncountable nouns are the most common problems. Here are some examples of things that students have written on their courses. Can you correct them? One is ok.

1. Here’s a good advice for you.
2. She have 3 dogs and a cat.
3. They became famous for attacking 5 woman.
4. There are quite a lot of firemen on the roof.
5. The police isn’t happy about the number of drugs being sold.
6. No one think this is a good idea.
7. I’m hoping to watch a comedy serie tonight.
8. There’s a lot of people outside the stadium.
9. My housemate is looking for a new accommodation.
10. We only have 5 fruits left.
11. They have just got 3 baguettes, 2 fishes and some milk.
12. She really need to find a place to work.
13. Our favourite mean of transport is bicycles.
14. Do anybody have any question.
15. The childrens were late so I punished them.
