Często popełniane błędy

Choose the correct option
We remained in a very good hotel.
We stayed in a very good hotel.
Not many figs have stayed on the tree.
Not many figs have remained on the tree.

Here, to stay means to live for a short time as a guest or a visitor, and to remain means to be left after part has been taken or destroyed.

Use either verb when the meaning is to continue in the same place or condition: I'll stay (or remain) at home till tomorrow. Remain is more formal.

Next
Please remind me to give it back.
Please remember me to give it back.

To remember is to have in mind: I remember what you told me. To remind is to make a person remember something.

Next
Some men are repairing the road.
Some men are correcting the road.

To correct is to make something right: to correct mistakes, a composition, a translation, one's pronunciation, etc. To repair or to mend is to put in good condition after being damaged: to repair or mend a road, clothes, shoes, etc.

To repair a watch is to put it in good condition again, but to correct a watch is to set it to the right time.

Next
We've always beaten your team.
We've always won your team.

To win is to get something you wanted, to beat is to overcome an opponent: The girls beat the boys, and won the prize. Remember the principal parts of each verb: beat, beat, beaten, and win,
won, won. 

Next
