Hi, everybody...I am new here and I really don't know how to use this forum, but I want to learn more about this forum and about english too. My english is not very good, I have really problems with grammar. But I hope here I will fined the help what I need for my study.
"...and the relationship will have been built up before (the work on) the book begins.' is correct. (the sentence talks about the future)
The following past tense sentence are correct:
