    Smile wondering about 'belong to'

    does it make sense?
    "you have belonged to our group, we are going to do our group project"

    did I have to use passive form?

    I used this sentence to let my friend know that she is going to do something with us.

    if there is a better expression, please let me know and correct my grammar mistakes. thanks!

    You can say "you belong to our group." Or "you're part of our group."

    If you say you have belonged to our group without any time reference, it sounds as if they're no longer in the group.

    did I have to use passive form?
    No
    Which verb were you thinking about making passive?

    Also, I would connect the two parts with and.
