    Default My friends will arrive soon to my apartment

    In the sentence "My friends will arrive soon to my apartment" is the grammar correct?

    Context: Ron and Patrick are talking at the phone. Ron ask if he can go to Patrick`s house.

    Patrick answer: I don`t know. My friends will arrive soon to my apartment

    Thanks

    My friends will arrive at my apartment soon.
    My friends are due to arrive at my apartment soon.

    And the two people are talking on the phone or by phone.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Change the grave accent to an apostrophe, please.

    It should indeed be an apostrophe, but it's a grave accent, not an acute accent.
