(To Learners) The most common errors you see foreigners make in your native language.

This is directed at non-native english speakers, but everyone is welcome to participate.

(I'm re-posting this because I had a duplicate account! I didn't even know I was on it!)

Through the years, I have seen many people struggle with certain phrases or rules in English.

One of the most common issues I have seen would be confusing different tenses. 

As an example: "I have plans yesterday." instead of "I had plans yesterday."

So, in the spirit of sharing cultures, I have one question.

What is the most common error you see foreigners make when speaking your (non-english) language?

This might also help you in your own studies. Try to think if you might be making a similar mistake in English!

In spanish the most common mistake is the spanish verbs "ser/estar" or in english " to be".  The english people usually use the verb to be to this. Also another common mistakes is with gender. In spanish the articles have a gender, the adjetives also have a gender.

I hope that this could be helpull and I'm sorry for my english, I´m beginnner
