    Tv video game

    "I am fond of playing video games. When I was in second standard I had a tv video game. So one day when I was in the school I thought I would play video game once I reached home" is it correct? espacially the last part. I want to say it with "Once". I know I can write "After reaching home" as well.

    Yes, "once" works.

    Is it correct, especially the last part? I want to say it with "once". I know I can write "after reaching home" as well.
    Note my amendments above. You can say "once I reached home" or, more naturally in BrE, "once I got home".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
