    Re: help me to write beautifully

    We were there to attend the wedding and to meet Sam's cousin. I am sure we will be there one weekend.

    Out of context it's not easy to know if this is what you meant because the first sentence appears to be talking about a past event and the second about a future event.

    Re: plz correct this sentence

    Has this happened already? I'm not sure of the tenses.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
