Friday Feedback Takeaways

‘Most people/of the people in my country.’

It’s good to use ‘many/most/some people’ in order to ‘hedge’, because you never know exactly how many people your statement applies to.

However, there is a danger.

Most people = general

Most of the people in my town = specific

Common mistake:

Most of people

Most of people in my town.

When to use ‘of’:

‘of’ is used before a specific determiner e.g

– most of my friends

– most of the time

– most of our life

Do not use ‘of’ when you’re speaking generally e.g.

– Most people

– Most cities

– Most countries
