One of the most common mistakes my students make is due to their translation of the Spanish equivalent . “Somos seis”
Teacher: How many people are there in the class?
Student: We are six
“we are six” actually means ” we are six years old” so when the teacher asks
How many people are there in the class? the correct answer must be
There are six of us
unless, of course, you really are six years old, which I very much doubt if you’re reading this.
Do you make this mistake? If so, now you know how to answer properly!
