Mistake 26: Two more tickets or two tickets more?

This is a common mistake among Spanish speakers because of the influence of our language. ‘More’ in these types of sentences is an adjective in English and as a result it precedes the noun: ‘Two more tickets‘.

In Spanish, however, it is considered an adverb and used after the noun: ‘Dos tickets más‘.
