    Does this sound natural?

    Sorry if the tittle is wrong, I didnt know what else to put.

    A conversation between me and my teacher

    "Teacher: Drop90, what happened? why did you miss last class?

    Drop90: I missed because when I was leaving the appartment, one of the main pipings broke and the water started to leak out strongly. The stairs turned into a river and the appartments were filling up with the water. It took about 1 hour for the cleaning man to shut down the valve and for us another hour to clean up the mess."


    Any unnatural phrase? mistake? something hard to listen?

    A comma splice.

    Re: Does this sound natural?

    Titles should include some relevant words from the parts of your post that you are unsure about. A good title for this would have been "Teacher: "Drop90, what happened?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
