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 were, we’re, wear and where in the wrong context. These words sound very similar but have a completely different meaning. You should really pay attention to the context in which these words are used. You can find an overview of the difference below.
