English Common Errors : actual – English Editing

Actual = real (as opposed what is believed, planned or expected): ‘People think he is over fifty but his actual age is forty-eight.’ ‘Although buses are supposed to run every fifteen minutes, actual the waiting time can be up to an hour.’ present/current = happening or exiting now: ‘No one can drive that car in its present condition.’ ‘Her current boyfriend works for Shell.’
