    Kevin called like five hundred times to my house at high school.

    Hello.

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

    "Kevin called like five hundred times to my house at high school. It was terrible!"

    Thanks.

    Re: Kevin called like five hundred times to my house at high school.

    I'm sure the first part is OK if you're a teenager who insists on using "like" for no apparent reason.

    However, "to my house at high school" doesn't make sense. Did Kevin call at your house (visited the house in person) or did he call the high school (by phone)?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Dear emsr2d2:

    First of all, thanks for your answer.


    Kevin call by the phone at the woman's house (who is speaking) at the time were they went to high school.


    "Kevin called by the phone five hundred times to my house at the time we were going to high school. It was terrible!"

    Thanks.

    When Kevin and I were at high school together, he phoned my house about five hundred times. It was terrible!
