    Question Those days there were no schools

    Hi,

    I came across this sentence:
    1."Those days there were no schools."

    Somehow it seems better if you say
    2. "In those days there were no schools."

    Is #1 above considered correct in
    colloquial English?

    Thanks

    Default Re: Those days there were no schools

    2. sounds right. Otherwise there'd be two subjects. As to whether 1. is colloquial or not, I don't know. What I can tell you, though, is this, I understand it.
