Stop calling it “pocket money”. Say this instead

English as we are already aware was never part of us until we were colonized by the British government.

Even at that, it is still very rare to see people speak English fluently as many people did not have the acess to proper education or due to tradition and beliefs like denying a female child acess to education.

As we have it, civilization has played a lot of significant role in making education accessible.

Today, we will be looking at some common mistakes we make either by speaking or writing English.

You will agree with me that no one is perfect in anything, but at least we should try to avoid some grammatical blunders.

A portion of the English we speak ordinary are erroneous yet the vast majority of us speak without noticing some of the errors we make.

The following are some regular mistakes we make in English language.
