    Question "they all"

    In my country, we often use the term 'they all' and I'm unsure if it's proper English.

    Sentence Example: "Hey, did you see John they all?"

    My take on the meaning: "Hey, have you seen John and co.?"

    Feel free to correct any grammatical mistake and thanks in advance for your response.

    "Did you see John they all?" is not a correct sentence. Your explanation sentence is fine - "Did you see John and co?", or "Did you see John and the others?", or "Did you see John and the rest of them?"
