    Question Yesterday

    Is this incorrect? :
    Sam was yesterday playing in that garden?

    Is it necessary to say :
    Yesterday Sam was playing in that garden?

    I thought that first one could also be used :/

    Welcome to the forums, sarcastic.
    The first one is wrong.

    Yes, the first one is wrong, but you can also say 'Sam was playing in that garden yesterday.'

    1. Please remember to write all words in full. Please don't use the "textspeak" abbreviations like "u".
    2. You don't need to write a new comment to say thank you. You can just click the word Like in the bottom right-hand corner of any post you wish to say thank you for.
