Here is my final update for 2020, and this week we complete the perfect tenses article with focus on the future perfect and future perfect continuous. A reminder that I've also updated my controversial Christmas Blogspot text. If you aren't already familiar with it, it is an expanded text for my students outlining why Christmas in Poland isn't as good as the ones I'm used to. But it is tongue-in-cheek and not meant to be taken seriously! I hope you enjoy it for what it is and allow for the fact it also moans at the British Christmas too. Finally there is the addition of the annual collection of Miserable student quotes from the past year. Merry Christmas everyone, and let's hope that 2021 can only be better.
If you rearrange the letters to 'Merry Christmas', you get 'Mr Starchy Miser'. That describes some people at Christmas perfectly.

the author's website:
Hello and welcome if you are visiting this website for the first time. This is the official website of the book - Typical Errors in English.
It is a collection of English language mistakes (usually) made by students studying English as a second language. And even by the occasional native speaker. Often there are no easy explanations as to why they are errors (and the fact native speakers often do the same thing), but TEE will tell you, often in an unconventional and fun way.
As well as some examples of errors that are both new and from the book, there are also several other features you will find only here on this site. We have quizzes, extra articles, your questions, grammar queries, cartoons, and links to other useful sites.
Like the book, the site does not want to be too serious - after all, English grammar can be a very dull and boring subject, and we want to make it fun with some additional cartoons, jokes and generally funny comments.
As regards the book, well, you could shout at your bookshop for not stocking this, but you could get your bookshop to order it, or you can also order it online from many bookshops - the links page mentions some of them. But you can also CLICK HERE FOR A TWENTY-PAGE FREE SAMPLER TO DOWNLOAD!
