Common Mistakes in Writing Task 2

Below are some extremely common mistakes made by candidates in their Writing Task 2 essays. Can you correct them?

1. In the present time

2. Due to globalization, we have western products in my country.

3. There are many problems in the social

4. The traffic is very jam

5. There are many drug addicted
Answers:

1. Should be ‘at present’.

2. ‘Due to’ cannot go at the beginning of a sentence – it should be: ‘We have western products in my country, due to globalisation’.

3. ‘Social’ is an adjective – should be: ‘society’ (n).

4. ‘Jam’ or ‘traffic jam’ are nouns – here you need an adjective to describe the traffic, so it should be: ‘The traffic is very jammed’… although nobody ever says that – just try ‘the traffic is bad’ or something similar.

5. ‘Addicted’ is an adjective – should be: ‘drug-addicts’ (n)
