Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?
1. Was their contract terminated or they left on their own accord?
2. I have never been there, someone else must have told you about it.
3. I have got it down pat / have it down pat. (I was talking about a routine task)
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
In BrE ir is more normal to have things off pat, in my opinion.
