There are a lot of common errors in English can be encountered among my students, friends, colleagues and other Malaysians basically. Sometimes, I don't have the heart to tell them upfront as it might hurt their feelings. Besides, I don't want them to think that 'I think I'm too good' because I'm not that good and still learning. Hopefully, this blog will help us to correct our errors so that we can practise good & standard English together.

COLOURED PENCILS or COLOUR PENCILS?
They are called as 'coloured pencils', not 'colour pencils'.
A photograph can be described as a 'colour photograph', not a 'coloured photograph' because of its natural colours.
