Form the habit of proofreading whatever you write. The following isa list of the most frequent errors made by beginners of Englishwriting before their writing habits are formed. Study them carefullyand do your best to eliminate them. 
(
初習英文寫作者,必已具備基本英文文法知識,但在練習時,作文中還是出現最常犯的錯誤,可能自已都不相信。為甚什麼?因為尚未養成英文寫作習慣。例如早已知道第三人稱、單數、現在式,動詞要加
s”
可是寫作時就是會忘了加。
) 1.1.
 
In titles you should not capitalize prepositions, articles, and conjunctionsunless they begin the title. All other words are capitalized.(
在書寫作文標題時,每一個字的第一個字母要大寫,但是前置詞、冠詞、連結詞則不需要,除非它是標題中的第一個字。
)Wrong: The title of his composition is "My Life
 In The
United Kingdom."Right: The title of his composition is "My Life
in the
 United Kingdom." Note: Prepositions of more than four letters are frequently capitalized.Example:In the first hour our teacher asked us to write a diagnostic composition on"A Little 
 About 
Myself." 2.2.
 
You should not use the verb which does not agree with the subject in personand number.Wrong: The number of the students in my English Composition class
are 
limitedtothirty.Right: The number of the students in my English Composition class
is
limited tothirty.(the number of 
是某某的數目,後跟單數;
a number of 
是多數的,後跟複數。
) 3.3.
 
You should not use "to" after the following verbs: behold, bid, feel, have, hear,help, let, make, observe, perceive, see, watch.Wrong: I made him
to go 
to a movie with Susan last night.Right: I made him
 go 
to a movie with Susan last night. Note: You may use “to” after “Help.” 
 
4.4.
 
You should not use an infinitive after a verb which must be followed with agerund.Wrong: It seems no one enjoys 
to read  
textbooks.Right: It seems no one enjoys
reading 
textbooks. 5.5.
 
You should not forget to add "s" to plurals.Wrong: There are fifty
 student  
in my English Writing class.Right: There are fifty
  students 
in my English Writing class. 6.6.
 
You should not forget to add "s" to the verb following third person, singular number, and present tense.Wrong: He
  go
to school every day except Sundays.Right: He
 goes
to school every day except Sundays.(Note: everyday
是形容詞,如
everyday life) 7.You should not use illogical sequence of tense.Wrong: He said that he
will  
come to see me yesterday, but he did not show up.Right: He said that he
would 
come to see me yesterday, but he did not show up. 8.8.
 
You should not use "but" after "though" or "although."Wrong:
 Although
I am a teacher,
but  
I cannot answer all your questions.Right:
 Although
I am a teacher, I cannot answer all your questions.I am a teacher, 
but 
I cannot answer all your questions.(
在中文中,在雖然之後,一定跟但是。在一句英文中,兩者誓不兩立。
) 9.You should not use "so" after "because."Wrong:
 Because
 he is not interested in English,
  so
 his English is very poor.Right:
 Because
he is not interested in English, his English is very poor.He is not interested in English,
 so
his English is very poor.(
在中文中,在因為之後,一定跟所以。在一句英文中,兩者誓不兩立。
) 10.You should not use illogical or double comparison.Wrong: Hislifeis like amovie star . (illogical comparison) Right: His life is like 
that of (the life of)
a movie star.Or: His life is like a movie
 star's(life).
(
同一類的東西才可以比較。
life
movie star 
非同類。
) Wrong: He is
more poorer 
in English than most of his classmates.
