This is a very typical mistake in English. Even advanced learners make it.
In English, we can say all, everybody and everyone, but we cannot use all if there is no following noun. Let’s look at the different possible structures below.
In English, we use everybody or everyone when there is no following noun:
- Everybody likes her.
- Everyone likes her.
Remember that everybody and everyone are singular. We say Everybody likes her, not *Everybody like her*.
We use all or all of before a plural noun:
- All the people like her.
- All of the people like her.
Before us, you and them, we say all of:
- All of us like him.
- All of them like him.
We can also say we all, you all, they all:
- We all like her.
- You all like her.
- They all like her.
