    Default Re: simple sentence

    This is an informal communication, so you could use a contraction (which is easier on the English ear - Americans seldom seem to use them.)

    This is colloquial speech:

    I didn't apply for this seminar (myself), but I sent it on to Irene to see if she was interested or not.

    This is formal speech:
    I did not apply for this seminar (myself), but I did forward it to Irene to see whether she is/was interested.


    'is/was' depends on whether the seminar has been held or not.
