But, if you prefer to learn alone, here is a summary of the most frequent mistakes made in Spanish:

  • Words that get confused : like / how, what / what, if not / if not, go / go ….
  • The comma of the vocative, that great forgotten. That is, when small particles are introduced in order to call or name someone: Juan, come here! Hey Sara, listen to me when I talk to you.
  • Some confusing imperatives. In general, we tend to use the infinitive instead of the imperative, but it is not a correct form, unless we add the preposition “a”. In other words, we cannot say: “* Come here right now!”, But we can say “Come on, everyone to sleep!”.
  • Unnecessary capitalization. Due to the influence of English, the predominant language in the networks, we tend to abuse capital letters and use them incorrectly. This is the case when we write the months of the year and the days of the week.
  • Gerund of posteriority . Also due to the influence of English, the use of the gerund with a sense of posteriority is more and more frequent, especially in the journalistic field (“There was an accident, * 5 people were injured”). This use is completely incorrect in our language, since, after all, the gerund is used to express simultaneity.
  • Concordance errors. These types of errors are very common in spoken language, but they also appear frequently in written texts. For this reason, we must be careful with expressions such as “the majority of the students”, since the verb must agree with “the majority” (singular) and not with “the students” (plural); In other words, the correct thing to do would be: “Most of the students went to the party.”
  • Incorrect use of prepositions . Who has not heard someone speak “from their point of view” or remember “objectives to bear in mind”? Each language uses specific prepositions in each expression or with each verb. Thus, in Spanish we say “from my point of view” and we do not use the construction “a” (preposition) + infinitive, because it is considered an erroneous Gallicism in our language. Instead, we must use a subordinate clause (“the objectives to be taken into account”).
  • If you work steadily, you will be able to advance quickly.
  • Do not forget, evaluate yourself and practice with exercises on the Internet.
