    with as many times...

    Which are correct:
    1) As many times as I have been here, I know my way around.
    2) With as many times as I have been here, I know my way around.

    3) As many times as I have been here, I still don't know my way around.
    4) With as many times as I have been here, I still don't know my way around.

    I think '2' is fine. I don't think '1' could substitute for '2', but I am not sure.

    I also have doubts about '3'. It is supposed to mean:
    5) Although I have been here a lot, I still don't know my way around.

    I don't think '3' works though.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Ali, I have deleted your post as the standard of English for a so-called native-speaking English teacher was appalling.

    As emsr2d2 told you in the Teaching English forum:

    Ali, your member profile shows that you are a native English speaker and an English teacher. As such, it is vital that you ensure that your posts are correctly written on this forum. Learners will look at your profile and assume that everything is correct. Please ensure you use correct capitalisation and punctuation at all times.
