    Grammar question

    Hello,

    Please, can someone correct the sentence below? I'm not sure about the tenses here.



    This is my husband. He returned home today. He has been on holidays.



    Thank you

    There are three sentences, not one. All of them are correct, although I would normally say "holiday" in this context, rather than "holidays".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    The tenses are fine.

    Please note that 'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed' (Posting Guidelines).

    'This is my husband' would have been good for this.
