    usage of time adverbs

    Hi, I don't think your sentence is correct. We say on Monday, Tuesday..but we don't say On yesterday or On tomorrow as these adverbs cann't come with a preposition. I agree with Tdol, the man proposed to his wife the following week. However I feel a little confused. :)

    Simple past and Past Perfect

    Hi, As I know, "before" is a prep and be followed by a noun or a gerund. So I don't think we should omit the subject (He). How about you?
