Das Error Spotting ist eine neue Aufgabenform. Hier werden Sätze untersucht, ob sie richtig sind.

Entweder muss man falsche Wörter verbesssern oder den Satz durch das Streichen eines falschen Wortes in korrektes Englisch bringen.

Meist sind es kleine Funktionswörter, deren Streichen dem Satz dann Sinn und Richtigkeit geben.
