Your language is always your bargaining power to make it skilled everyday; therefore, it’s imperative that we broaden our horizon and own it entirely. 

Often times the problem is not rooted in what to say, but how to say it makes a lot of people not want to speak at all. It’s an indisputable fact, while we’re striving diligently dairy to grasp the English Language and make it our own, we sometimes get trapped at a point where we can’t just do anything about it; but the only solution at hand is to quit. This implies that we all want a perfect experience in life, but the fact is, perfection is an illusion that can never be realized. What we can do instead, is to manage our imperfections and make the best out of it.

Kudos to our English tutors, and grammarians who have been with us since childhood – feeding us with the right content, style and dynamics of the English language; and sometimes wish that they could fill our mind with all of it till it got full.

Frankly, there are certain mistakes we’ve been committing ever since we began our educational journey, especially in the area of literature and grammar.

A typical example this: Sister Asaabea, I think I’m now matured to live on my own. Although, the speaker might think he or she is right with the usage of the verb ‘matured’, but in actual fact, he or she is wrong. ‘Matured’ is only used for things other than human beings. For instance, after leaving the mango for two more weeks, it has now fully matured

Instead to say, Mr. Ibrahim is matured enough to get married; just remove the letter ‘e’ and say, Mr. Ibrahim is mature enough to get married.
