    "No, we never talked about that."

    Hello.

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

    "No, we never talked about that."

    Thanks.

    It's grammatically correct. Whether it fits the context or not would depend on what precedes it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: "No, we never talked about that."

    I'd say "we've never talked about that".
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    You may be right, but in post #2, emsR2D2 is right to point out that we can't say what we would say until we know what precedes it. That is, we need more context to know.

    Both sentences are grammatically correct, but they'd be used in different contexts.
