    Who, when

    Hello, teachers.

    I have a question.

    I want to write a long sentece.

    "I have a foreign friend who is a chinese when we met on a trip"

    Is it correct? We can use two relative pronoun in one sentece?

    Hello, CCC!

    You may use as many relative pronouns as you like, as long as you use them correctly. Isn't life good?

    Many Americans never say whom. It's right, though.

    Thank you for your answer!

    But I don't know what you say.

    What is the mean "Many Americans never say whom. It's right, though" and "Isn't life good?"

    Sorry.

    Hi.
    "I have a foreign friend who is Chinese, whom we met on a trip"
    Would you accept I in the second part "..., whom I met ...," please?

    Re: Who, when

    Your sentence would be better as "I met my Chinese friend on a trip." The rest of the sentence is unnecessary.
