Common mistakes in English 8

1 – I have sure the report was on my desk yesterday.

 

O verbo é to be sure e não to have sure.

 

Desta forma:

 

 I am sure the report was on my desk yesterday.

 

 

2 – Could you borrow me your book?

 

Borrow or lend????

 

Lembram-se dos famosos pegar emprestado e emprestar??? Pois é, just the same in English:

 

I usually borrow some books from my friends. I borrow.

 

He always lends me his book’s. He lends me.

 

Assim:

 

Could you lend me your book?

 

                    or

 

Can I borrow your book?

 

 

3 – You should talked to me last week.

É passado? Lembrem-se da fórmula: should+ have+ past participle of the verb (a nossa famosa terceira coluna dos verbos…)

O mesmo vale para os demaismodal verbs no passado: could, may, might, must.

 

A forma correta é:

 

You should have talked to me last week.
