Error común al hablar de cifras en inglés

Al hablar en inglés, un error común es decir “10 thousands of people”

What you should say: 10 thousand people

 When we talk about a specific quantity of something, we don’t use ‘of’ in English. A common mistake occurs when students talk about money – we say ‘three million euros’ and NOT ‘three million of euros’. Notice that when the quantity is not specific, we do us ‘of’ in English: millions of people, thousands of cars…

 

Tokyo has more than 15 million inhabitants. – Tokio tiene más de 15 millones de habitantes.

You make 70,000 euros a year! – ¡Ganas 70,000 euros al año!

Over a long weekend, there are thousands of cars on this road. – Durante un puente, hay miles de coches en esta carretera.
