Some friends, especially those who are just learning English, often make the following mistakes.

The reason to make this mistake is not due to grammar knowledge. One reason might be she and he have the same pronunciation in Chinese.

These mistakes are made because of direct translation. Another similar mistake is: I very like Canada. You really like Canada, or you like Canada very much.
