    Re: Help me to rewrite these sentences...

    Hi, and welcome to Using English.

    The way the forums work is that we expect you to make your best attempt first.

    You can't post the questions and expect others to answer them.

    So give it a try first, and then someone else will take a look.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Help me to rewrite these sentences...

    Thank for your comment... But...
    Actually I have a lot of exercises and I have done most of them. These are ones that I have thought for so long but I couldn't ... and I am working with it

    Here are my answers for 2 of those... I've just find them ... tell me if I made any mistakes
    1. Andrew pretends not to have a lot of musical talent.
    4. If she wins she will be showered with congratulations.

    Now... It's too late in Vietnam so I think I need to sleep. I will think about it tomorrow
    And... Thank you again, Mod

    For the rest... can you give me any hints or structures of the words in bold? I think it would help me to remember the structures much better.

    Thanks.

    #2 - stroke of luck
    #3 - and what's more...
    #5 - breathe a word

    So, with those hints, you can try the others.

    Re: Help me to rewrite these sentences...

    Thank you so much for your hints. Here are my answers:
    #2 - We had stroke of luck to find somewhere to park so quickly.
    #3 - She is rude, and what's more, she is dishonest.
    #5 - Don't breathe a word of it to the boss.

    can you check these sentences and the other 2 above there. Thank you
