    That's not so strange, Mylevt. How about reversing the clauses?--

    "No matter where he goes, his mother goes with him."-- Or is that too much like the original?

    What is the goal of this exercise, precisely?-- are you required to use 'no matter what/where/when' in the sentence?

    Dear Mister Micawber.
    When you reverse the clause containing no matter where, it is no longer strange. I see the normality. Can I replace "goes" into " follows" ?
    I feel very interested when I reverse the sentences.
    I have another sentence I don't understand. Are you willing to help me?
    "It is sad, but nothing unemployment is unlikely to go down this year."
    You know whenever the word "unlikely" appears, I don't understand. Perhaps I understand too little about this word.
    Please help. Thanks.

    Yes: "No matter where he goes, his mother follows him." (no 'with')

    'Unlikely' is fine there, but 'nothing' is wrong-- delete it. Or change to 'but employment is unlikely to go down at all this year', if that is your meaning.

    Dear Mister Micawber.
    You are indeed helpful to me.
    Thanks to your help my knowledge about English seems to have a chance to improve.
    When you delete" nothing" the sentence becomes understandable.
    The sentence is written wrongly so I am very confused.
    Thank you a lot with all my heart.
    MyLevt.
