I want to ask whether British people make grammatical mistakes when they're talking?

Patrick Chan, Hong Kong

Some British people might say "I done that!" "It cost me five pound." "We wasn't there." Some people say they are mistakes while some others disagree.

What seems like a simple question: "Do British people make mistakes when they are speaking?", is actually rather complicated. Why is that?

In this programme Wang Fei and William interview Dr John O'Regan, a lecturer in education at the IOE (Institute of Education at the University of London) and try to find out the reasons. You will also have a chance to listen to many British people's opinions about today's question.

Watch your mouth! Have you been caught saying the wrong thing?

Have you ever heard "Where yam going?" and "I haven't seen yous for ages?" Do you know what they mean? You'll find the answers to this in today's programme.

You will also learn a lot of useful words, expressions and good advice about English learning.

一个有趣的问题:英国人说英语会出错吗?为什么有些不正确的英语用法却不能称作错误呢?在本期节目中,伦敦大学教育学院的 John O'Regan 博士还有 BBC Learning English 的英语专家 Alison Konieczny 将为您解答这个问题。听一听专家对英语学习的建议,千万别错过!
