    Default Please Need Sentences Correction

    Hi Teachers,


    Could you correct these two sentences please? The idea is to include 'as ... as' in the sentence.
    a) My friends are playing as happily as me.
    b) My house is as far as my parents' house from work. Is it also possible, '... parents' house from my job'?


    Thanks in advance

    a) My friends are playing as happily as me/I am. OK.
    b) My house is as far from work as my parents' house (is). I prefer it like this.


    Thanks in advance

    If you are not sure, please do not post responses that could be incorrect. As it happens, yours are.

    a) My friends are playing as happily as me. Many people say this; some prefer '...as I (am)'.
    b) My house is as far as my parents' house from work. You could say '... from (my) work, from my job, from my/the office'. You could also put these phrases before 'as my parents' house'.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

    Hi,
    Don't go from white to black. There are many other colors in between.
