    what do you call this?

    Hi,


    "I was a teacher in China last year"
    we call this a sentence

    "teacher"
    we call this a word

    "in China"
    what will you call this?
    a clause? a phrase?

    "in China last year"
    what will you call this?
    a clause? a phrase?


    Thanks

    "in China"
    what will you call this?
    a clause? a phrase?
    : a phrase

    "in China last year"
    what will you call this?
    a clause? a phrase?
    : also a phrase

    If the whole sentence "when I was in Korea, I was studying English" is given, then one clause is "when I was in Korea," and the other clause is "I was studying English."

    I'm not a teacher, but a student studying English very hard.
