    a sentence

    Dear teachers,

    How to connect semantically one part before comma and other one:

    'To Joan's proffer of a week or two at one of Bournemouth's best hotel, she had hesitated.'

    Thanks in advance,

    Re: a sentence


    There are many rules to use comma. One of which is being explained-which is in applicable to your illustrated sentance.
    1. To mark off an introductory Adverb Claus.

    Applying the rule to the illustrated sentance

    The reason for her hesitation is: Joana's offer, so you have puntuated the sentance correctly to mark off introductory Infinitive Clause (Clause starting with "To").

    Warm regards,
