Sherlock Holmes’s grammar corrections

If you can’t watch the video on this blog, try this link.

I find really interesting how English is perceived by both students and teachers. The way we approach grammar and how we see it may well influence how we speak, and more importantly, the way we sound.

This video is an example of ‘good grammar‘ vs. ‘bad grammar‘. The clip was taken from the BBC series Sherlock.

  • What are the mistakes?

  • If you made those mistakes, how do you think you would be seen by the other speaker?

DON’T WORRY, YOU WON’T BE SEEN AS A CRIMINAL, THAT’S NOT WHAT I MEANT!
