    He is celebrating this good news in a restaurant with his parents.

    He is celebrating this good news in a restaurant with his parents.
    With the changes I made, they are both correct. (It is also the same sentence twice. )

    He denies that his parents contribute anything toward his tuition at Harvard.

    You may thank me now. (Click the "Thank" or "Like" button or both.)

    Re: Help

    You turned the first sentence into a comma splice.

    I also managed to screw up the second sentence. (Maybe I need a nap.)

    They should read:

    I am French, and I have a lot of questions.

    Is this sentence correct?
