Good material, I think I'll use it with my students. Helpful since students can realize mistakes they make.

I found the list of errors to be quite extensive.  The accompanying explanation is helpful.  I can see how this reference can be used in an assignment for students to improve their usage.

A nice page for language learners. One may find interesting things about the language even if he's not looking for answers to his questions.
