    It went like sort of like this

    Hi teachers,

    Is "It went like sort of like this" correct English? If it is, what does it mean? If it is not, please remove the mistakes.

    Thanks.

    Re: It went like sort of like this

    It is informal, colloquial English. Better would be: "It went like this". That means "It went this way", "It happened like this".
