Even the most proficient and fluent speakers of English as a foreign language can make errors without realizing that they are doing so. Sometimes these errors are made so often that they become a natural part of the person’s speech. These are known as fossilized errors.

One major factor, for example, is the influence of your own first language (your mother tongue).

Read the instructions for each question VERY carefully as they can differ from question to question. Make a note of problem areas and use the explanations to help you.
