    Default common mistakes

    I am a teacher of English and my pupils usually make these two mistakes 1) Congratulations for instead of "on" How grave is this mistake?
    2) When ordering tea, Can I say two teas, please instead of two cups of tea, please?
    Thanks a lot

    Definitely - and hope they do a 'silver' (oh, well, stainless steel teapot) tea service rather than a tea bag in a cup.
