Erros comuns

Escolha a opção correta
Jill loved money; she was miser.
Jill loved money; she was a miser.

Miser i s a noun, and we can't use it as an adjective. The adjective is miserly: She was miserly.

My sister is taller than I.
My sister is taller than me.
Also possible:
My sister is taller than I am.

The word than is a conjunction, and can only be followed by a pronoun in the nominative case. The verb coming after the pronoun is generally omitted.

Use the ob|ective case in spoken English. You're much taller than me.

Janine talks as if she knew everything.
Janine talks as if she knows everything.

Use the past tense after the phrase as if or as though. He talks as if he knew everything, means He talks as he would talk if he knew everything.

Use the subjective were with the verb to be after as if: He acts as if he were a rich man.

Do you understand the problem?
You understand the problem?

Place the auxiliary verb do (does, did) before the subject to ask questions in the simple present and simple past tenses.

Don't use the auxiliary do with modal verbs, like can, may, must: Can you meet me tomorrow?

My little brother is at school.
My little brother he is at school.

Never repeat the subject by using a pronoun after the noun My little brother and he denote the same person. Therefore, use one or the other as subject, but not both.
