I would love to see your opinion on these questions.
What are the most common mistakes students and teachers make?
What advice would you give to your teachers or students?
My answer is:
The most common mistake students make is ignoring basic grammar. We all know how important talking is, but understanding grammar is an absolute must.
But I am talking about BASIC GRAMMAR here.
You don`t need to spend time on grammar at all once you understand the BASICS.
Hey, whats up!
I disagree with you, paying attention on grammar makes me stuck and struggling on the place. In my opinion, the students and teachers usually concentrate more on grammar than it's really needed. So, they mostly learn literal English, insted of learning practical English.
