AEE 533: 3 English Mistakes Michelle Heard in India

English in India common misakes

Michelle traveled to India a few months ago and she heard three big mistakes in English.

Are you making these mistakes too?

Find out in today’s episode!

Here are the mistakes that Michelle heard:

  • Mistake #1:  Michelle heard “I was attracted on someone” but we should say “I was attracted to someone.” Be careful and be sure to use the correct preposition. Here are a few other ways to say this phrase:
    • “I like him” or “I like her.”
    • “I’m into him” or “I’m into her.”
  • Mistake #2: Michelle heard “He was angry on me” but instead we should say “He was angry at me” or “He was angry with me.” Other ways to say this:
    • “I am mad at someone.” This could also mean “crazy” but in American English it usually means angry.
    • “I am pissed off” or “I am ticked off.” Be careful because this phrase is rude. Don’t use it in the business world or when you’re trying to build professional relationships.

 

  • Mistake #3: Michelle head the overuse of “actually” but it should only be used to show surprise, to add additional information and a few other functions but it should not be used to state simple information.
