    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?
