Common English Mistakes #2 - narrow/wide

In English narrow and wide are used to describe the width of things...

"Central Street is very wide"
"The hallway is very narrow"

...but not to describe the size of spaces.

NOT "My room is very wide" X
BUT "My room is very big" O


NOT "Inside his car is narrow" X
BUT "Inside his car is small"O

I hope this helps
