How about

"A Decoy"

With the hint in mind,

You can take the missing letters from the misspelled words (u, fasinated, inglish, wenesday, alot and deer), to get "yo + c + e + d + "space" + a".

Then

You can take the anagram of "yoced a" to get "A Decoy".

This fits with clues because:

It is not the obvious answer, as stated by the clues.
There is a decoy used in the form of the obvious answer of "INCORRECT"

Second attempt:

The initial of the misspelt words (fasinated, inglish, wenesday, alot, deer) spell out "fiwad"

If you let Google Translate detect the language it turns out that

"fiwad" means "farewell" in Somali

Where did you use it?

You end the post with a "good luck": "farewell" is literally a wish of good luck on a journey.

My first answer was too trivial, this one is totally bonkers. It is left to the reader to decide which is worse

  • $\begingroup$ This answer is also incorrect. You are a lot closer than I had expected someone to come after just a few hours though so good job. You are on the right track. Although your answer was incorrect, I like the ingenuity so i gave you a +1. $\endgroup$ – Ankit Jul 2 at 0:17
  • $\begingroup$ Yay, I have never been on the right track before! I mean, in life, not just in puzzling. Still stuck and waiting for an epiphany though... $\endgroup$ – BarryPoppins Jul 2 at 17:19

May be too simple to be the right answer, but is it:

Incorrect?

Reason

The capital letters spell the word "incorrect", it is used in the last sentence and the English used is indeed "incorrect"
