25 Kesalahan Bahasa Inggris Mahasiswa Pintar


Melanjutkan pembahasan yang kemarin, tentang kesalahan-kesalahan berbahasa Inggris yang dilakukan oleh Mahasiswa tingkat dasar, tingkat menengah dan tingkat mahir, kali ini pembahasan lebih sulit dan lebih rumit dari sebelumnya; yaitu “25 Kesalahan berbahasa Inggris yang sering dilakukan oleh Mahasiswa yang sangat Mahir”. Dengan kata lain, posting ini jelas ditujukan untuk anda yang memang merasa memiliki kemampuan bahasa Inggris diatas rata-rata. Namun tidak salah juga jika ada yang memiliki kemampuan bahasa Inggris pas-pasan mau membaca posting ini sekedar mengintip kesalahan apa sih yang sering dilakukan mahasiswa yang jago Bahasa Inggrisnya. 

Seperti sebelumnya, referensi yang digunakan dalam posting ini adalah dari buku karangan Michael Swan yang berjudul Practical English Usage edisi ketiga. Judul yang ditawarkan Swan yaitu “Even very advanced students can make mistakes – nobody’s perfect! Here are 25” jika diterjemahkan ke dalam Bahasa Indonesia menjadi “Bahkan Mahasiswa yang sangat mahir pun bisa melakukan kesalahan – tidak ada manusia yang sempurna! Ini dia 25 Kesalahan Mereka”. Mengadaptasi judul tersebut, saya member judul posting ini menjadi “25 Kesalahan Bahasa Inggris Mahasiswa Pintar!!” seperti yang diungkap Swan, Check these out!!!
