How can I request that someone stop correcting my grammar and/or pronunciation of words?

This is in a social setting and the person who does this frequently is a friend's husband. I do value the friendship and I often enjoy doing things with both of these individuals.
I'm really tired of the constant corrections, which probably occurs at least 1X/visit. I do believe that I can/could improve my grammar and/or pronunciation of words, but it is not something that I want to spend hours correcting.
I have also considered spending less time with these people, but it may be at the expense of the friendship.
