Use of the wrong Grammar

Using the passive infinitive (to be + past participle) instead of the active (to + infinitive).
Don’t say: English isn’t easy to be learned.
ΓΌ  Say: English isn’t easy to learn.
The adjectives easy, difficult, hard, heavy, good, etc., are generally followed by the active infinitive.
