Whenever you open your mouth or type an email, people judge you. If you make mistakes in your use of English, you could lose business. You may fail to get a contract or a job because some people assume that you are as ignorant of your subject matter as you are of your language. No-one is saying English grammar is easy. It sometimes seems like every rule has an exception. This video, sponsored by Hampshire Workspace, will help you avoid seven of the most common mistakes.

The seven common mistakes are

  • Mixing up ‘affect’ and ‘effect’
  • Mixing up ‘lie’ and ‘lay’
  • Homophones (words that sound the same but mean something different)
  • Apostrophes- when to use them, when not to use them
  • The Dangling Modifier Clause- what it is and why it shouldn’t be left dangling
  • Using ‘could of’ instead of ‘could have’
  • When to use ‘I’ and when to use ‘me’
