#GrammarTrivia: Here vs Hear, Choose vs Chose vs Choice

Hi there fellas, so there will be a little #GrammarTrivia to share this evening =)

According to the CGP book for GCSE English Grammar, “here” and “hear” are one of the sound alike mistakes existed

Just remember these:

1. “Here” is like “There”

Sini seperti sana

“Here” artinya sini (di sini/ke sini)

E.g. “Come here!” = “Ayo sini!”

 

2. “Hear” think “Ear”

Dengar ingat telinga 

“Hear” artinya dengar 

E.g. “Can you hear it?” = “Bisa dengar itu?” 

 

Another common mistake will be leaving out important ‘o’s such as in the next three words:

Choose, Chose, Choice

Sometimes one tiny letter can CHANGE the meaning of a word completely.

LOTS of MISTAKES can occur here especially when you are writing in a hurry.

Remember these:

1. Choose = present tense, which means it is happening now

“Choose”artinya memilih/dipilih (sekarang)

E.g. “I choose the red dress because it suits the event’s theme.”

“Saya memilih baju rok langsung merah itu karena sesuai dengan tema acaranya.”

 

2. Chose = past tense, which means it happened already

“Chose”artinya memilih/dipilih (sudah terjadi)

E.g. “I chose the red dress last week for tomorrow’s event.”

“Saya memilih baju rok langsung merah itu minggu lalu untuk acara besok.”

 

3. Choice = noun (kata benda)

“Choice”artinya pilihan

E.g. “The red dress was my choice, not Lucy’s.”

“Baju rok langsung merah itu pilihan saya, bukan Lucy.”

 

So:

For here and hear, think there and ear

For choose, chose and choice, make sure it’s the right one to use on the sentence you are writing

Here’s what I captured from the book, hopefully it can be useful :D
