    Right or wrong? Grammar

    Hi there,

    What do you make of the following sentences:

    1. There have already been many other problems before.

    2. They lived in very bad conditions before.

    Thank you!

    You don't need "already" in the first sentence. Instead, say:
    There have been many other problems before.
    The other sentence is fine as is.
