    Smile How can I use in the context of attend?

    Hi Teacher,

    I would like to know How to use attend in the sentence as below;
    1. We're attended to make a cook. Is it correct?
    2. We're attended the party to make a cook. Is it correct?

    I wonder that attend follow by noun/place only? and I would like to know that it can follow by verb or not.

    Re: How can I use in the context of attend?

    Welcome to the forum.

    "Attend" is a verb so I'm not sure what you are trying to say.

    Sentence 1 does not make sense at all. "We are attended" is ungrammatical and "to make a cook" means nothing.
    Sentence 2 has problems too. Again "We're attended" is ungrammatical.

    Are you trying to use the past tense of "to attend"? If so, it's just "We attended", meaning "We went to".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thumbs up Re: How can I use in the context of attend?

    Hi Teacher,

    I would like use the passive voice in present tense as "we are attended the party to sing a song" Is this sentence correct?

    Re: How can I use in the context of attend?

    No. If you really needed to write a passive version of "We attended a party", it would be "A party was attended by us". It's very unnatural in the passive.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
