Hi all. I'm following a few accounts on Instagram to improve my English grammar skills. but I have noticed in some videos people use:
"Anyways"
and in some videos people use:
"Anyway"
and I saw a video where the teacher was telling that "anyways" is incorrect. I'm so confused about which word is correct or which is wrong if both are correct then how and where to use them.

Thank you.

Anyways is incorrect grammar.
Depends where you live.

It's non-standard or esp in US, dialectic, according to most dictionaries.

To be pedantic, it's a usage, not a grammar issue.
It's not the end of the world if used occasionally informally.
Anyways is meaningless
dannyk13 is perfectly correct Fatemah.
It might help you to think that there may be many ways to get to a destination say, but you will need to pick only one to get there.
The term 'anyways' is colloquially understood, but actually incorrect.
It's really just lazy speech.
Anyways is a slang/informal way of saying it, and so is fine in that context.

It would be wrong to use in a formal sense such as a legal document for example.
Instagram may not be the best place to learn grammar.
Where would be the best place NJ?
"Where would be the best place NJ?"

At school.
I have never heard the word 'anyways' used in the USA - very sloppy it is. Also, while I am it, I hate the word 'simples' too - nearly as bad as 'bestest' - as used by the Duchess of Pork as in 'my bestest friend' - which lesser public school did she attend? How in blazes can you have a superlative of a superlative?
"Anyway" is correct.

"Anyways" is either used deliberately wrongly, by people being a bit playful, or it's used unknowingly wrongly by people who don't know what they're doing.

If you're trying to learn English and always be correct, never use "anyways."
-- answer removed --
people may say "anyways" - I think it's mainly American slang - but you should never write it; always write "anyway". They have the same meaning.

It's more to do with usage than with grammar, though.
Hi Fatemah, Anyways is grammatically incorrect. As far as I know, Anyways is the most popular slang version of anyway and should never be used in formal writing. Anyways is typically regarded as informal speech and grammatically incorrect. As a student, I am using this https://fixgerald.com/ website that can help me identify any grammatical types of grammatical error words or sentences.
I hate bad grammar. I watch Judge Judy (yes, I know) and sometimes wish she would correct people who say sentences like “We had gotten a dog.. etc”. Or “We had went there”.
"Had gotten" is the correct form in the USA, Smurfchops:

I know what you mean though. Our local rag's website keeps referring to a 'driving license'! Grrr!
Fatimah.

The object of language is to be able to communicate.

Very few people can speak a second language fluently.

It matters not, that you use "anyway" or " anyways ", as you will be understood. Also with "driving license" or "driver's license " you will still be understood.

Don't , please ask the British about second languages as we certainly are no authority.
Fatimah, Sqad has given you the best reply yet, in my opinion.
It is all about being understood.

Remember that replies you get on AnswerBank may come from a wide range of people, both in terms of their education and age. I am old and when I attended school a lot of importance was given to the correct use of grammar and spelling. I continue to be influenced by my education. Perhaps others here may not have had the same type of education and be a lot younger. Such differences do make themselves known in written and spoken English.

If you continue to study this language as well as you have written your question I am sure you will have no difficulty in communicating with people. I wish you well.
SQAD, in that usage, it's "driving licence" here, the other version is the American spelling.
Thank you Corby.
Fatemah, my apologies for misspelling your name.
