Nghe đáng sợ vậy đấy, nhưng chúng ta chỉ cần cẩn thận và kỹ lưỡng một chút thôi là có thể tránh được những lỗi này ngay.


Hôm nay, các bạn hãy cùng Pandora xem qua và kiểm tra xem CV của mình có “vô tình” phạm phải các lỗi sau không nhé:

  1. ‘Your’ vs. ‘You’re’ and ‘Its’ vs. ‘It’s’

“Your” and “Its” are possessive pronouns, while “you’re” and “it’s” are contractions of “you are.” and “it is”

Example 1: You’re pretty. It’s raining

Example 2: Give me some of your whiskey. The dog chewed on its bone


  1. ‘There’ vs. ‘They’re’ vs. ‘Their’

“There” is a location. “Their” is a possessive pronoun. And “they’re” is a contraction of “they are.”

Example 1: There is a car on the road

Example 2: Their car is new and expensive

Example 3: They’re very rich


  1. ‘We’re’ vs. ‘Were’

“We’re” is a contraction of “we are” and “were” is the past tense of “are.”

Example 1: We’re very excited today

Example 2: We were very excited yesterday


  1. ‘Then’ vs. ‘Than’

“Then” conveys time, while “than” is used for comparison.

Example 1: We left the party and then went home.

Example 2: We would rather go home than stay at the party.


  1. ‘Affect’ vs. ‘Effect’

“Affect” is a verb and “effect” is a noun.

Example: How did that affect you?

Example: What effect did that have on you?


  1. ‘Two’ vs. ‘Too’ vs. ‘To’

“Two” is a number.

“To” is a preposition used to express motion toward a person, place, or thing.

And “Too” is a synonym for “also.”

Example 1: I have two email addresses

Example 2: I’m sending the email to you

Example 3: You can send me email too


  1. ‘Into’ vs. ‘In To’

“Into” is a preposition that indicates movement or transformation, while “in to,” as two separate words, does not.

Example 1: We drove the car into the lake.

Example 2: I turned my test in to the teacher.


  1. ‘Alot’

“Alot” isn’t a word. This phrase is always two separate words: a lot.


  1. ‘Who’ vs. ‘Whom’

Use who to refer to the subject of a sentence and whom to refer to the object of the verb or preposition. Shortcut: Remember that who does it to whom.

Example 1: Who ate my sandwich?

Example 2: Whom should I ask? (most of you guys probably say: “Who do I ask?”)


  1. ‘Whose’ vs. ‘Who’s’

Use “whose” to assign ownership to someone and “who’s” as the contraction of “who is.”

Example 1: Whose backpack is on that table?

Example 2: Who’s going to the movies tonight?
