Most Common Grammar Mistake Ever!! (Don’t Do This!)

Sometimes you can greatly improve English in a very short time
and today we will do just that.
I want to show you one thing today that will really improve your English.
I am 1000% sure that this is the bug I fix most of all,
more than any other mistake.
It is the error I hear in teaching most often.
And here’s the mistake. Listen to the answer the girl gives.
Did you hear the mistake in her answer?
Use the same error, but in another example.
Which this time? No? Let’s go for another one.
Something is missing here. Let’s fix it.
This is a very common mistake. So do not worry if you have not recognized it.
One word is missing –
you know which?
And remember – she said this:
“Yes I want.”
In Romance languages, perhaps in other languages ​​…
it is enough to say something like “I want” in such a response.
However, in English we must have a subject.
In this case, the verb is “to go”.
You can of course say:
“Yes, I want to go.”
That’s fine – no problem.
However, it is much more common, more natural
just say “I want to.”
“Yeah I want to.”
Similarly with another verb.
“Do you want to sleep?”
“Yes, I want it, very much.”
Let’s replace the verb with a noun.
For example, “Do you want coffee?”
In your answer, the subject still needs to remain.
Which item will I use for “coffee”?
Simply say:
“Yeah I want one.”
… I always want one “
This speaks of something general.
But when you talk about one particular thing,
the question may be: “Do you want this?”
“Do you want that?”
In this case, the answer will not be “I want one”.
We are talking about specific things. The answer is:
“Give it to me!”
Frankly, this is happening in many other cases.
This is an example when you do not use an object when you should.
For example, if you want to ask: “Did you like / love / hate this thing?”,
it is one particular thing.
Then your answer should not be “Yes I Loved”.
He misses the subject.
Here is a specific thing.
We are talking specifically, so what is the subject?
It’s a pronoun
“it” of course.
So do not forget the subject, do not forget the pronoun.
But watch out! In terms of modal verbs, this is not the same.
On the question “Can you dance?”
note that the verbs do not associate with the verbs with “to”.
That’s why it works differently.
You must not answer:
“Yes I can.”
Neeee! –
– because the question is not “Can you dance?”
In answer also no “to”!
So do not forget in the sentences on the subject and the particles “it”.
Thank you very much for looking.
