Common Mistakes in English. Do you speak Spanglish?


English grammar games
WRONG I play poker every 15 days.
RIGHT I play poker every other week.
RIGHT I play poker every two weeks.
15 days?! WHAT is THAT?! In English we count 7 days to make one week, so 2 weeks is 14 days. It’s arithmetic!
Notice these similar uses:
  • Every other day (NOT “one day yes, one day no”!!)
  • Every other year
  • Every two years
  • Every 10 years
If you make this mistake, try to correct it. Say it to yourself. Tell yourself a list of things you do every other week or every 10 days. You can do it!
