What really irritates me is when people mix up 'accept' and 'except' as well as 'affect' and 'effect'.\n\nLet's just clear this up.\n\n'accept' is to give consent to receive or undertake (something offered).\nFor example: ' I accept your apology\

At my school teachers get mad if we write or say “would of” “could of” etc

I hate it when people say 'too much' when talking about plural things. It's okay when saying 'I've had too much to eat' but not like 'I've had too much sweets'

Teens saying LIKE a thousand times a day - I don't like that.

Okay the 'can I get' is rude right? But what if i say 'excuse me can I get' is it equally rude?

I watched in another YouTube channel (also British YouTube channel) and 'I was sat down' is widely used in England. Eventhough it's wrong in grammar, why is it widely used there? That's confusing.

#2 seems really petty. #5 is a parasite word, I'm not sure you could call that a grammar mistake. #8: I'm not sure if that also comes from the States, but the phrase \

Inung_food Diary
I'm not a native speaker and English is not my first language. One thing i hate most is shortening of words in text messages or comments. For example writing hw r u? Or y u do dat? Instead of the proper how are you ? Or why did you do that? /why are you doing that? 😅 😂😂as i mentioned before I'm not a native English speaker this really confuses me alot.

Merci beaucoup Madame, je ferais de mon mieux pour apprendre l'anglais, je vous le promet .
Lisa McClymont
Anyone who speaks even reasonable English doesn't EVER SAY sorry unless you're APOLOGISING for something it's just really annoying we have to put up with morons lol 😂

A mi me da verguenza hablar ingles con otras personas, aunque lo estudio hace muchos años, porque pienso que si cometo errores gramaticales pensaran que soy bruto o tonto. Una vez intente hablarle a una mujer angloparlante y fué un desastre. Creo que los que hablamos español somos mucho mas tolerantes con los extranjeros y su pronunciación y gramatica. Saludos Lucy eres muy guapa y me ayudas mucho con mi ingles
Mariana Catrangiu
Thank you for mentioning “h”!!!!

Certain areas of England they say \
Maurycy Kuc
So, like, when I was sat down at my computer with me and my friend we thought all them like examples should of been better, no offence. Apart from that you did good with the editing in this video, but would of enjoyed it better if you did you're examples better.

This video made me fear to write a comment because I thought that I will somehow make a mistake...

People at my old school used to say to the teacher “ can i go to the toilet?” And the teacher would say “ can you?” Then the teacher would say” you mean MAY i go to the toilet?” This was so funny 😂😂😂
Rae Ginter
It funny because it is so British to say “I was sat on the bench” or whatnot and she is saying not to say that!

Hi Lucy, my word you're looking good. I really hate people saying done instead of did, as in so thats what I done and give instead of gave as in she give me a call yesterday. It's just bloody lazy speak and the mark of a chav. Love your videos so keep them coming xx
But what happens when more people speak \
All this complaining I don't think is any good. People will continue to use language incorrectly, and linguists will continue to complain. But, as long as the main idea that one wants to communicate is understood, then people will keep using that \

I liked this video. Thank you.

What drives me absolutely bonkers is the common use of 'I could care less' in stead of 'I couldn't care less' .....do people not think about what they are saying?

I'm British and I think I've been watching too much American shows or American youtubers. lol.
Let's all mourn the loss of the adverb in English. It's disappearing very quickly. Or as they say, it's disappearing quick.

when i came to uk and listened to the people around talking in english, i lacked my confidence, thought i was wrong and felt to improve a lot but after watching your shows i am glad that my English is ok and now i regain my confidence. thanks for such a informative videos.

“Can I get...” in America is very common, especially at a place like a coffee shop as you said, but I think most people would say “I would like...,” “I will have...” or “Can I have...” instead, especially if the place they are ordering from is more formal such as a restaurant. It still sounds less polite then the alternatives you offered but it is such common phrasing over here that no one sees it as rude or improper.
My four pet peeves: 1) Refusing to use the Oxford comma and 2) You didn't touch on the issue of subject/verb agreement. Drives me crazy! It seems every subject takes a plural verb...The family were going. The group of cars were sold. Gang of youths attack dad with baby buggy... 3) using \
