    Help

    Hi,

    I want to tell a person 'A', that person "B" had just entered in a room before the person "A"

    can I say: He just came before you came

    or he just came before you

    is it correct, if not please tell me the correct way to say this.

    Re: Help

    Yes, but the repetition of 'came' is inelegant.

    'He arrived just ten minutes before you.'
