Topic: I eat or I have eaten
Posted: Wednesday, February 22, 2017 5:21:53 AM
Before I brush my teeth, I have eaten my dinner.

Is the sentence ok? Should it be "I eat" instead?

Thanks.

Before Mum brushes her teeth, she has eaten her dinner.

I think "has eaten" is not correct? I think should be "eats".

Am I correct? Thanks.

Topic: She and I, we agree on that.

Her and me, we agree on that.
She and I, we agree on that.

Which is the correct sentence?

Hello Koh Elaine.

I cannot give the grammatical theory, but the normal pattern of this type of sentence is "It was with great sadness that Emily gave her kitten away."

It actually corresponds more exactly with "Emily gave her kitten away with great sadness." or "Emily gave her kitten away. It was with great sadness."

Thank you.

Emily was very sad to give her kitten away.
It was with great sadness for Emily to give her kitten away.

Is the second sentence the correct transformation of the first sentence?

Thanks.
