    what form of "graduate" I could use?

    I dont know what kind of tense used for "graduate" here and why
    "Tim doesnt seem to be particularl fond of his school but, of course, when he declares that the very day he....(graduate) he'll make a bonfire to burn all his books, this is some sort of axaggeration"
    Anyone could help me? Thanks

    The tense should be present: "graduates". Your punctuation could use some work.

    Would you like to try to fix the punctuation?

    You last post should be: Thank you so much.

    Please see my corrections to your punctuation above. If those spelling and punctuation errors all appear in your homework, you won't get a great grade.

    I am closing this thread. Do the best you can with your homework and when you get it back from your teacher, look carefully at any corrections. If you don't understand any of your teacher's comments or corrections, you can come back to us for help.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
