    Are these sentences natural to a native year 2015 Nov 20

    Hi,

    Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. What do you do when someone sleeps through the/their alarm?

    2. He cursed me / at me / out in public.

    3. Do you ever travel to downtown / travel downtown?


    Thanks.

    1. What do you do when someone sleeps through their alarm? (An odd question.)
    2. He cursed at me or He cursed me out.
    3. "Do you ever go downtown?" is more natural.

    musicgold, if you do not correct the information in your profile, your posts will no longer be answered on this site.

    Thread closed until the OP corrects the profile information.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
