A. Correcting student mistakes.
Each of the following sentences contains a mistake. For each one:
- underline the mistake
- write the correct version
- write the explanation you would give to a student for the correction.
1.I need some advices.

Explain that advise is when you have a problem and you go and ask someone what they think you should do.
So you are asking them for advise.
There is no such word as advises.
2.I am watching T.V. every night.
- I watch tv every night.
Using the word watching is used in the present tense. So you are doing this now.
Are you watching tv now? In the classroom?
When do you watch tv?
The words every night . Means you are watching tv every night.
So if I ask:
Do you watch tv every night ?
