    It's common English mistakes. With me, however, mistakes are uncommon.

    :wink:

    You might want something more descriptive, like mistakes commonly made by ESL learners. Of course, that's somewhat longer than the other one.

    :)

    common, English errors.

    common English errors. (Could mean, English is common; it's the language that's common.)

    By they way, technically, they are errors, not mistakes.

    All the best,

    What is "With me, mistakes are uncommon?" I seldom make mistakes?

    Thanks.
