usage of the emphatic expression "it is .. that who
Here is a brief excerpt from a translation from Russian in English:
The beginning of my career in aviation was similar to that of hundreds of Soviet fighters-pilots: the military school, then the regiment. The years after that which I spent with one of the celebrated flying regiments are also very memorable to me. It was here that my independent life started.
I bring the expression in bold to yours notice. I am very curious to know whether there everything is all right.
Would you be kind enough to tell me your opinion concerning the using of the emphatic construction it is (was)… that (who, which) in the mentioned above expression?
What do you think about the following sentence?
It was not she who had taught me English.
Thank you for your efforts.
