    "Immediately that I arrived" doesn't work for me.

    Does the issue remain unsolved?

    ems, a British teacher, gave you a couple of 'immediately after' examples; her post was 'liked by an American writer and an American teacher. SoothingDave, an American who is interested in language, confirmed that 'immediately after/when' are fine in AmE. bhai, a British teacher said that 'immediately' without 'when' is fine in BrE, as did Michael Swan; riquecohen said that this was almost never used in AmE. The British bhai and the American SoothingDave said that 'immediately that' is not acceptable in either variety.

    So - what remains unsolved?
