常見錯誤 Common mistake – habit vs hobbit

I sometimes hear people say hobbit when they mean habit.

The mistake is more common with those who score below band 6.

Habits are behaviours or actions that you do automatically from doing them repeatedly.

I usually sleep late due to my bad habit of playing on my mobile phone at night.

I’m trying to quit smoking, but it’s a hard habit to break.

On my way to the dentist’s, I got off at the wrong station through force of habit. I normally get off at that station on my way to work every day.

Hobbits are a fictional race of human-like people in the story Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien.
