#4 Common Mistakes from the Homework
Which sentence uses “I sleep” correctly?
- I sleep at 10:00 p.m. every night.
- I sleep for eight hours every night.
Option #2: I sleep for eight hours every night.
Why? “To sleep” is used for the time you are already asleep, not when you start sleeping.
When you start to sleep, you need to say:
“I go to sleep” OR “I fall asleep”.
10:00 p.m. – “When do you go to sleep?”
My brother’s wife is my ___________________.
Option #3: sister-in-law
Which sentence is written correctly (grammar)?
- Sandra no mother or father in the United States.
- Sandra has not mother or father in the United States.
- Sandra hasn’t a mother or father in the United States.
- Sandra doesn’t have a mother or father in the United States.
Option #4: Sandra doesn’t have a mother or father in the United States.
Which sentence is written correctly (grammar)?
- Aisha daughter in middle school.
- Aisha daughter is in middle school.
- Aisha’s daughter is in middle school.

verb + noun + verb:
Aisha has daughter is in middle school.
“Aisha has a daughter in middle school” would be correct (no “is”).
