    Are these sentences natural? Sept 24

    Hi,

    Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Who is on the phone with?

    2. Is it a Jewish holiday today?

    3. It is quite small from European standard. (I was trying to say that the room was quite small)

    Thanks,
    MG

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
