    Many people mistake me for my brother

    Many people confuse me with my brother. So I use the sentence below to express that.
    "Many people mistake me for my brother". Is it right grammartically? Are there any similar sentences to express the same meaning?

    Re: Many people mistake me for my brother

    It's just fine. So is your "confuse me with."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
