There are some simple rules of grammar which will help you to avoid mistakes and become a fantastic
English speaker. These include subject verb agreement, tenses and nouns. If you keep these rules in
mind you will minimize your mistakes and will become a communication expert.
These are some things you should keep in mind while speaking in English: -
Many times, while speaking in English we make mistakes in singular and plurals. For example,
the word people is a plural word meaning more than one person but many candidates use peoples
for more than one person which is incorrect. Also another example is when people use woman’s as
the plural of woman, while the plural of woman is women. Thus we should be careful while using
singulars and plurals and not make these silly mistakes while speaking in English.
• SUBJECT VERB AGREEMENT:-
The verb in a sentence must agree with its subject.it is the corner stone rule.
They both should be either singular or plural. Eg: A girl is driving a car. All the sentences that begin
with each, every will have a singular verb. Each student in the class is hardworking.
• TENSES: -
You should brush up your knowledge of tenses as many new English speakers make mistakes in tenses. One should be aware of three main tenses: past, present and future and four subcategories of tenses: simple, continuous, prefect and perfect continuous.
• DON’T TRANSLATE FROM HINDI: -
Another mistake new English Speakers make is translating from Hindi to English. You need to understand that both these languages are different and have different grammar and thus if you translate between them you will definitely end up making mistakes while speaking in English.
While forming a sentence, the structure of the sentence should be kept parallel. For eg, she likes to write, travel and dancing.
The above sentence is incorrect as the structure of the sentence is not parallel. The correct sentence will be: She likes to write, travel and dance OR she likes writing, travelling and dancing.
This means writing the same thing twice.
For eg: She returned back from Paris.
In the above sentence returned and back mean the same thing, so the correct sentence will be She returned from Paris OR She came back from Paris.
Thus, by avoiding these silly mistakes you can become fluent and good English speaker which will help you grow and prosper in your personal and professional life.
