Normally we say "spelling errors/mistakes" but don´t sweat it too much, with time you see them even if you don´t want. Practice makes perfect they say.
Besides, you didn´t made something awful, even natives sometimes make mistakes. As you can see in this outdoor:
"15 best things about our pubic schools." http://now.msn.com/spelling-errors-a-ph ... y-mistakes
Can you help me with some questions, please?
For example, the so called “American way of life”
I myself, made a mistake there. Instead, I should have written "so-called", used to introduce a new word or phrase which is not yet known by many people
. In Portuguese "o assim chamado/o que chamam de." or if you wish, the second aception I found on a dictionary (I think that one is even more apt to fit there) :
"used to show that you think a word that is used to describe someone or something is not suitable or not correct
-It was one of his so-called friends who supplied him with the drugs that killed him.
In a way, the text is going to say that just swallowing "other culture" without weighing the pros and cons it´s not always suitable, so in this way the "so-called" carries an opinion on it, of sorts.
" It isn’t difficult not to notice "
Again you have a point, on second thought I spotted the double negative (but just after you having warned me, he he.)
Yet, I have noticed that on blogs and sites (anyway I will check it on with my friends on an English Forum. Then I will be back to you.)
I recall something about "negative in meaning", if it´s the case, here you would have an affirmative statement, altough you have the word "difficult". Because you are affirming something positively, namely, that "it´s difficulting not to notice...something"
For the time being, you can use that:
"It isn’t difficult noticing the influence television and movies may have in fashion."
It´s closer to what you had in the beggining.
