    Hi guys,

    Please check. "We are of the same age. He is of the same age as mine"?

    Re: Age

    Do I can say "we are the same age or he is the same age as us or he is the same age as I am".

    You need to separate the sentences you're suggesting more clearly. Remember that "Do I can" is not a grammatical way to start a question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I admire your patience and perseverance in pointing out tufguy's mistakes to him, ems. Unfortunately, he does not take such corrections on board and I guarantee he will continue to make the same mistakes.

    Re: Age

    Can I also say "He is the same age as ours or mine"?. I hope I have not made any grammatical or capatalisation mistake. I have one more question "He doesn't take it on board". What does it mean?
