    Default attracted very much

    Dear all,


    Do you say, "The woman attracted our attention very much"?

    Or is it better to say, "The woman attracted a lot of attention from us"?

    Thank you!

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Optimist Pessimist,


    If you want to retain the idea of "very much,"

    I think that many native speakers would say:

    The woman really attracted our attention.


    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****
