    Default refresh someone's memory

    Hello!

    Did I use the expression 'refresh someone's memory' correctly?

    He gave us a couple of minutes to run through the text so as to refresh our memory.

    We read the information in the gramamr box and refreshed our memory of modal verbs.

    She refreshed my memory of the use of determiners.

    Many thanks!

    The first two are fine, but I am not happy about the third. I can't think why at the moment. If inspiration strikes, I'll get back to you.
