Every week on the IELTS exam, Arabic speakers are making the same grammar mistakes! Get more strategies for increasing your IELTS scores at ielts.allearsenglish.com..
Of course, Arabic and English are very different languages! Learning any language is difficult, but for many students the countless grammar rules are the hardest part.
So, after analyzing many, many Arabic-speaking IELTS candidates, in both the Speaking and Writing exams, I’ve come up with the 4 most common grammar mistakes that are made.
“I have more homework.” “More” does not mean “a lot” or “many”! More is only used as a comparative. For example: “My house in Saudi Arabia has more bedrooms than my apartment in Seattle.”
“I have a lot of homework; because that, I am tired at night.” You cannot say “because that”. You must say, “because of that.” For example: “I have a lot of homework; because of that, I am tired at night.”
Missing the verb “be” Remember, every sentence in English has a subject and a verb. You cannot say, “My teacher good.” You must say, “My teacher is good.”
Noun + adjective In English, the adjective goes before the noun. You cannot say, “teacher good”. You must say, “good teacher.”
