    Rebecca walked through the room,

    Hello

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Rebecca walked through the room, trying to find where the laughter was coming from. As she suspected, once again, it was coming from the last row. Tim, a tall and robust fifteen years old boy, was distracting other students of her class."

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    See my suggested changes above. I would use "back row" but "last row" isn't wrong. I don't know what you're trying to put across with "robust" - can you explain it differently.
    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.

    I want to explain that Tim was a tall and strong boy, he was a bully.

    Thanks.

    Re: Rebecca walked through the room,

    OK, I can accept that "robust" could be taken to mean that he's strong, but it doesn't suggest that he's tall and it certainly doesn't suggest that he's a bully!
