    using noun as a verb

    Dear Teacher,
    I'm trying to use a noun---<a friend>---as a verb. For example, a sentence I'm trying to make is: "He had befriended him in his yenger years."
    Now, my question is if i can do that or it is something not quite correct?
    Thank you in advance for helping me to impruve my English.
    Respectfully Tencrife.

    Hello Tencrife

    "He had befriended him in his younger years" is fine.

    Bye,
    MrP
