- For Teachers
Hi dear experts. Does the underlined part in the sentence below sound OK in English?
"I have left my watch at home and I hate to be unaware of the time."
Yes - it's OK.
I'd say '. . .and I hate not knowing the time'.
Maybe I would say "forgotten" instead of "left", so as to stress that I did so unwillingly.
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor (at present) a teacher.
