"There are times that I have fallen short of my own standards. Thereís certainly times when Iíve fallen short of Godís standards."
I came across the sentences above and I feel confused and puzzled by it use of "There are" and "There's".
In colloquial language, you will find people using there's + plural. Formally, it would be regarded as an error, and it does look a bit strange as the first sentence uses the plural verb. However, it is the kind of thing you will hear native speakers using.
