Common Errors in English: Actually and Currently

Don’t say: “Actually, I work at the university.”

Say: “Currently, I work at the university.”

Currently means “now, at the present moment.”

Actually means “in reality,” and it is often used to make corrections:

  • “You’re from Brazil so you speak Spanish, right?”
  • “Actually, Portuguese is spoken in Brazil.”
