Well,well,well…This is me again.
Last week I went to an interview where I heard some people making some mistakes in English–including me. We were answering normal questions that an interviewer does.
Nevertheless, something that called my attention was the answer of an interviewee to this question:“What thing will you never buy?” Then he said, “a bottle of water”. Obviously, I know that the answer is wrong but my question is why…and at that moment I wondered. “Why is it wrong?”
Because sometimes we say “could you give me a cup of coffee?” and we know that’s ok. So, what does make the difference between saying “a bottle of water” and “a cup of coffee”?
Let me know your outlooks!
