Hello respected teachers,

I've just remembered that's my evening class night.

Would the following be a good paraphrase of the above?

I've just remembered that I have an evening class that night.

I am looking forward to your answers.

I just remembered that I had an evening class that night. IMO

To paraphrase something is to say it in different words, but keep the same meaning. What you have here is not really a paraphrase because it is too much the same in wording.

Very short sentences such as this are difficult to paraphrase because of that, but an example for this one might be something like:

"I think I have a class on that night."



A great many people will think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices. ~ William James ~
