    His voice sounds so different that I thought it would sound.

    1) His voice sounds so different that I thought it would sound.
    2) His voice sounds so different that I expected It to sound/be. (Should I say sound or to be or both are correct?).
    3) He wonder how he will be like in real life when I see him in person.


    Did I construct the above sentences correctly?

    Hi Jit833,

    I think I know what you are trying to say. So I've given you a few more options to take a look at.

    If you don't think it's right, let me know and I'll try to change it.

    1) I thought his voice would sound different than what it is.

    2) His voice sounds so different than what I expected.

    3) I expected his voice to sound different.

    4) I didn't think his voice would sound so different.

    5) His voice does not match with the voice I expected him to have.

    Calvin

    If you want to keep your sentences more or less the way they are, you could say:

    "His voice sounds so different from how I thought it would (sound)."
    "His voice sounds so different from how I expected it would (sound)."
    "He wonders what he will be like in real life." (You could also use 'in person')
