Dear English learners!
Below there is one mistake in each sentence. Can you find and correct them all?
1. This is beginning of the project. CORRECT
2. We're having a new manager. CORRECT
3. They have meetings often. CORRECT
("They meet often", "They often have meetings", and "They have frequent meetings" are a tiny bit better because they place the modifier closer to the word it modfies.)
4. Do you go to lunch with your colleagues?
5. I myself feel unhappy.

#2 makes sense in a context where you are in the process of bringing in a new manager. The old manager will be leaving so you start looking for a new one. During that interlude when you know a new manager will arrive soon, it makes sense to say "We're having a new manager". It makes sense in the same way that it makes sense for a woman to say "I'm having a baby" until the moment when the baby is born.
