American Way: Cách dùng từ
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - bottom

Dear admin,

I have a list of some common English mistakes. I need some ideas of what to do with really helpful sentences I have collected. Would it be a good idea to open a topic called "American way: common mistakes?" Well! Actually, it's not really a mistake. It's just a contrast between Asian way and American way. For example:

Asian way: Who cooked this salad?
American way: Who made this salad?

Asian way: Little Children are difficult to understand that.
American way: It is difficult for children to understand that.

So, how is my idea? By the way, please correct my sentences if you see any mistakes. Thank You.

The idea is excellent. Move on.

----------------
Earlier in the paragraph you mentioned mistakes in plural so later you should keep the same. Either one of bellows is ok:

. Well! Actually, it's not really mistake.
. Well! Actually, they are not really mistakes.

Thank you for your quick feedback and correction.

Hi BLTC !

Your collection of common mistakes is very useful. Pls continue and thank you so much.

117826 top -

Excellent! Yeah! This topic is very interesting! C'mon baby!

117872 top -
Yeah, I love this. Please, keep going on...

Quite a useful topic, buddy.

Asian people tend to speak English by translating what they want to say from their mother tongue into English. Your sharing in this topic points out the correct words and the proper ways used by the locals there.

It's really helpful for new immigrants as well as for those who study English as a second language.

Many thanks.

@BaoLaTinhChua:

Cám ơn bạn, tôi vẫn hay dự thính những lớp học này.

Cám ơn chú Nghị. BLTC chỉ phụ với admin một tay post mấy cái câu mà BLTC sưu tầm được. BLTC nghĩ nó sẽ giúp ích được phần nào cho những người đã, đang, và sẽ định cư tại Mỹ.

P/s: Chú Nghị đừng coi là lớp học nha, BLTC thấy ngài ngại, hihi.

Thích quá! Thích quá!
MM chỉ biết nói vậy sau khi đọc xong những câu viết so sánh ở trên của BLTC!
Dù BLTC nói là "sưu tầm" nhưng không phải ai cũng biết chỗ để "sưu tầm" đâu!
