A common mistake in English is when people use similar words in a different context. Some words are pronounced in almost the same way and people get confused sometimes when to use which word.
One of the most common mistakes in English is the use of there, their and they’re in the wrong context. These forms sound similar but have completely different meanings. You can find an overview of the differences below.
|there||when you are talking about a place or location||Where is he? He is over there.|
|their||when you want to express possession||What is this? It is their book.|
|they’re||they are, from the verb ‘to be’||They’re late for school!|
