    Cool enter

    Hello!

    Is "the room" redundant in this sentence?:

    "Yesterday morning, I was working in my office when my colleague entered the room."

    Thank you
    W

    Re: enter

    If you use 'entered', then 'the room' is not redundant, though it's not essential. More natural would be:

    ... I was working in my office when my colleague came/walked in.

    'The room' is now redundant.
