In this tricky grammar review you will meet a character named Marie.
Marie took this course and her family is really excited that she's taking English lessons online.
Her husband Theo and her 70 year old sister Layla both text Marie in English because they wanted to practice English too.
Marie is now confident after taking this course and enjoys correcting their mistakes.
See if you can correct their mistakes too.
>> 8 AM at the office.
[NOISE] I think that's my husband.
Honey, where is my red pants?
Did you include them when you clean the laundry?
Why does he need his red pants?
Theo really should be more careful instead of saying where is my red pants?
He should say, where are my red pants?
Because pants is a plural noun and it requires a plural verb.
And I also remember learning that laundry does not collocate with clean.
It collocates with do.
So he should have said, when you did the laundry 9 AM, still at the office.
Another message from Theo!
The bus came late again.
I am in the bus now, but I'll be 20 minutes late.
Aww, my poor husband.
I hope his boss doesn't get too angry with him.
But I noticed he said in the bus when he should have said, on the bus.
Like on a plane and on a train.
12 PM, lunch at the park.
[NOISE] It's Layla!
Hi, big sister.
Could you helping me find an university?
I want study chemistry.
[NOISE] There is a lot of informations.
I don't know where to start.
I see a lot of mistakes here.
Instead of saying could you helping, she should have used the base form help.
Could you help?
And university begins with a consonant sound, so
instead of using an, she should have used a, a university.
And after the main verb want she should have used an infinitive form.
So she could add to and say I want to study chemistry.
And maybe she doesn't know that information is a non-count noun.
So no s is needed here.
Hm, what can I tell her?
I know, 12:04.
Still at the park.
[SOUND] It's Layla responding.
Thank you, Marie.
You always give me the best advice.
Also, can you borrow me your silver dress for my graduation?
I see a couple more mistakes.
So instead of using advise, the verb, she wants to use advice, the noun with a C.
And I think she means can you lend me your silver dress.
She would borrow it, and I would lend it to her.
4:15 PM, back at the office.
[SOUND] That must be Theo asking about dinner.
Honey, don't worry about dinner tonight.
Myself will make dinner.
Yay, I don't have to make dinner, but instead of saying
myself will make dinner, I think Theo meant I will make dinner.
[SOUND] Can you bring desert?
But no more fruit please.
We have much fruit already.
I'm sure he meant dessert.
And I remember learning to use much in affirmative sentences sounds very formal.
So it would better to say a lot of fruit.
Hm, I think I'll buy some chocolate ice cream.
6:30 at the market.
[SOUND] It's Layla again.
You are the best sister in whole world.
Me, you, and Theo should have dinner soon.
Aw, she's so sweet.
But instead of saying in whole world,
she should've said the whole world because there's one world.
And instead of saying Me, you and Theo, she should have said, you, Theo, and I, putting herself last.
And after Miss, you need to use a gerund, not an infinitive.
So she should have said, I miss hanging out with you guys.
I miss hanging out with her too.
[SOUND] Honey, where is cat?
I don't see her anywhere.
Is he talking about our cat?
Where is the cat?
I better get home right away.
Night time. The end.
>> You might feel like Marie, noticing mistakes and fixing them.
Thanks to the lessons that you've learned in this course.
English can be tricky, but that's okay.
You can fix your own mistakes and the mistakes of others and learn from them.
Thanks for all of your hard work.
We hope that you come back and learn from us again, bye.
