Free Online English Lessons Spotting Mistakes

Grammar, Level B1+

When you are writing, checking your work is one of the most important stages. Here is some practice in spotting mistakes: some of these sentences have mistakes, and some are correct. If you think there is a mistake, try writing down the correct sentence.


Mark which sentences are correct and which are incorrect. See if you can spot the incorrect words yourself!

2. Patsy went home early yesterday for she had a headache. 
3. Today is Friday so tomorrow is Saturday. I like the weekends. 
4. David is going to Spain next week. Isn't he lucky!
