    The day before yesterday's session.

    "The day before yesterday's session."

    Please check.

    Re: The day before yesterday's session.

    If today is Tuesday, write The session we had/attended the day before yesterday. Possessives on noun phrases like day before yesterday​ are awkward and hard to understand.

    Note that neither your version nor GoesStation's is a complete sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Can you use that phrase in a sentence? You can write one sentence with each variation if you want advice on which one to choose.

    Re: The day before yesterday's session.

    And please, please, find a way to avoid using 'or something else' in your sentences. Put brackets around it, make it a different colour, whatever - don't make it part of the sentence. It just doesn't help in understanding your sentences. (Maybe that's what GS is saying.)

    See above.

    Re: The day before yesterday's session.

    Did you really manage to miss the correction I made in bold and red in post #8? Please add the missing word and use the correct punctuation mark at the end of a question.
