LEARN INDIAN ENGLISH, LESSON 4
1. Use the phrase "out of hundred" instead of "percent." Don't say "I got 100 percent on the test." Say "I am getting hundred out of hundred." Instead of "I gave it 110 percent effort," you can say "I am giving it one hundred and ten out of hundred effort."
2. Instead of saying "he is older than me," you can save a couple of letters by saying "he is older to me."
3. In most instances, you can avoid using the definite article "the." Don't say "We went to the Jagjit Singh concert in the stadium," when you can merely say "We went to Jagjit Singh concert in stadium."
