    Everyday vs Every day
    (Explanation)
    Everyday is an adjective meaning "daily."
    Every day is a time expression meaning "each day" or "regularly."
    Examples
    Note the difference in the following sentences:
    1. Jane goes to class every day (each day)
    2. Jane has an everyday class. (a daily class)

    Drop down a few common errors.

    #1: Should have a period after the parenthesis.

    #2: Take away the period after the word "class" and then see Correction #1.

    Too vs. Two vs. To.
    (Explanation)
    Too means "also" and is generally used at the end of a sentence. "Too" also indicates too much of
    a particular quality.
    Examples:That car is too expensive for me!
    I'd love to come to the party, too.


    Two is the written form of the number 2.
    Examples:
    There are two applicants for the job.
    She has two cats.


    To is generally used as a preposition. It is also used as part of the infinitive form of verbs.
    Examples:
    I gave the book to him.
    The verb "to understand" is irregular.

    These two words are usually my problems.. "Do vs Does" sometimes can be very tricky.

    So, I've come up with these solutions: Use does when it's a matter of only one person or thing.

    Does he know?* Does your sister know?* Does the boss know?* Does that car cost a lot of money?

    Use do when it's a matter of more than one person or thing.

    Do they know?* Do your parents know?* Do the other members of the group know?* Do those cars cost a lot of money?
