Errores Comunes en Inglés: Depends on vs depends of


Hey this is Joel from In this lesson, I want to talk about a common mistake.

The mistake is to say, “It depends of” something. For example: “It depends of the money.” That’s not correct. In Spanish, you would say, “Depende de” – So I think for that reason a lot of Spanish speakers translate it literally from Spanish to English.

But in English, we say, “It depends on...” So, the correct way would be to say, “It depends on the money.” I’ll give you some other examples:

“It depends on how much time we have.”

“It depends on if I have enough clothes.”

“It depends on who else goes.”

Alright, so just remember, it’s “depends on” –not “depends of.” Well, hope that this was useful for you and that you can fix this mistake if it’s one of the mistakes that you’re making.
