    Dear teachers,

    I am writing some sentences in my:
    But I don't know whether they are correct or not:

    1.
    I am trying to recall my memory and write some interesting things that happened in my childhood in my diary.

    2.
    The first time I watched Movie A on TV was 3 years ago when I was a teenager.

    Please help, teachers.

    We don't say "recall my memory". You might say "recall some memories/a memory".

    1. I am trying to recall some childhood memories and write them in my diary.

    2. The first time I watched "Movie" was three years ago, when I was [still] a teenager.

    Note that that suggests that you are no longer a teenager.

    By the way, your post has nothing to do with your title - there are no adverbs involved.
