Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video,

0:05

I am going to teach you about some mistakes a lot of students make.

0:11

So, I've been teaching English for about five years now, and the

0:14

mistakes I'm going to teach you today, I've seen students make many times in both their

0:20

speaking, as well as their writing. Okay? So these mistakes are mistakes students make

0:27

when they're talking about people.

0:29

So, I'm going to give you some examples of some of these mistakes.

0:33

The first one I want to show you: "Some Canadian people hate winter."

0:41

It's true, I'm one of those people; I hate winter.

0:44

So, "Some Canadian people hate winter." There's a mistake, here.

0:48

I want you to take a moment to look, and think: What could the mistake be?

0:54

"Some Canadian people hate winter."

0:58

I'll give you a hint: The mistake is somewhere here. If you thought

1:03

"people" is the mistake, you're correct. "Canadian people", it's redundant. We don't need the

1:13

word "people", because "Canadian"... If we add an "s" here, this means "Canadian people".

1:20

Okay? So, instead of saying "Canadian people", we would say "Canadians".

1:25

"Some Canadians hate winter."

1:28

It's the same if we wanted to talk about Americans. We would not say:

1:33

"Some American people hate winter." We would prefer to say: "Some Americans"

1:39

-with an "s"-"hate winter".
