    Default sentences

    Could you help me, please?

    - I have difficulties IN/AT/WITH math.

    - There were a few good movies on TV last night in which I was interested watching.
    (Is this sentence correct?)

    - My sister invited me to go out with her friends and her. I decided to GO ( IS THIS GO CORRECT? OR, "decided to do so" ? "decided to go with them" ?) although I was really tired.

    Thanks.

    Say:
    • I have difficulties with math.

    There were a few good movies on TV last night in which I was interested watching.
    (Is this sentence correct?)

    (Preferable is, "My sister invited me to go out with her and her friends.")

    If you are talking about the subject "math", "with" would be the best. If you are talking about the "class", then "in" could be used also.

    I agree with Ron's answer.

    - My sister invited me to go out with her friends and her. I decided to GO ( IS THIS GO CORRECT? OR, "decided to do so" ? "decided to go with them" ?) although I was really tired.
    I agree with Ron here also, but "I decided to go" would also be acceptable. :wink:
