    Default Are these sentences natural? March 31

    Hi,
    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. My question for you is when are they going to come out with their results.

    2. So If I want to do this on my own, where will/would I find the material?

    3. Do you need me to help with anything?

    Thanks,
    MG.

    *not a teacher

    These are fine with me. The first one is missing a question mark.

    I assume the semicolon is a typo.

    I would add "this":
