Commonly confused words are a problem for both native English speakers and those learning English for the first time. Shine some light on this confusion to help your students become effective users of English!
This PDF contains 42 pages of commonly confused or misused words in English, across all levels of speakers and writers (including native). Altogether, 86 words are explained, along with an example sentence and corresponding picture.
The words explained range from beginner level (e.g., a vs an), all the way up to advanced level (e.g., elicit vs illicit), and everything in between!
You can use this resource as letter size posters for your classroom (place together to make a collage) or a booklet for students. It could also be the basis for a ‘word of the day’ type of activity, or used as daily writing prompts (just to name a few ideas).
Enjoy, and happy teaching!
