OK, so the sentence is meant to be a transformation of this one:
She realized how much she hated England only when she went to live in France.
And then comes I'm not sure which version is correct:
a) Only when she went to live in France, did she realize how much she hated England.
b) Only when did she go to live in France, she realized how much she hated England.
I'd be really gratefull for any help. Thanks in advance,
I'm not a teacher
a) is correct.
Only when Jill got the office did she realise she was dealing with a company called Personal Travel Group and the £100 prize was just a lure to get her to come to this meeting. BBC - Watchdog
Thanks for such a fast help :)
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.
Barb is more observant than I.
Welcome to the forum, jacobb.
If you want something countable, you can say 'a [helping] hand'. But a hand (meaning help) usually refers to practical help - doing something helpful, rather than being helpful by giving information/advice.
