    Default Are these sentences natural? Oct 30



    Hi,

    Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. I wanted to get his approval of how I calculate that account’s income.

    2. We might go there just shake hands with management.

    3. Sure I will come with you, take a stroll.

    Thanks,
    MG

    1 is OK.
    2 - We might go there just to shake hands with the management.
    3 - Sure. I will come with you to take a stroll.
    or
    Of course I will come with you to take a stroll.
    Sure. I will take a stroll with you.
    Of course I will take a stroll with you.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
