Grammarian

We were privileged to have Joyce point out to us the grammatical errors, wrong usage and pronunciation mistakes we made during our speeches at the 30th January meeting.

Joyce is a lecturer with a private educational institution and teaches English as a profession.  Here are what she shared that day:

Vocabulary

  • Like I said; As what I have said

 

Pronunciation (stress)

  • proJECT (v) vs PROject (n)

 

Grammar

  • secret of happiness; not secret to happiness
  • listening to music [activity]; not listen to music
  • reading/speaking [activity];
  • I’ll take you through what chakral is; not I’ll take you through what is chakral
