    Is this sentence grammatical?

    Dear teachers,

    Can you please tell me if the following sentences are grammatical?

    1)Do you sense that there is somebody behind you when you watch a horror movie?
    2)Have you ever felt that you lived a moment like experienced before?( I want to mean defa vu but in a different way)

    See above in red. I haven't tried to correct the second sentence (apart from the spacing around your punctuation) because I don't know what you mean by "I want to mean déja vu but in a different way". What sort of "different way"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The reason that I wrote ' I want to mean deja vu ....' is that maybe my sentence has grammar mistakes and it may seems not logical for you because of my English and you may not understand it.I want to learn if 'felt that you lived a moment like experienced before' is a correct use and refers to deja vu.

    OK, now I understand. No, "felt that you lived a moment like experienced before" is not grammatically correct.

    Have you ever felt that you have already experienced a moment you're actually experiencing for the first time?
    Have you ever had that 'I've been here before' feeling?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
