    combine the sentences

    He is late for the class. He doesn't come to calss at all.
    Is this one correct? He either is late for the class or doesn't come to class at all.
    I need a permanent job. (my children)
    Do we say either I or my children or either my children and I or it doesn't make any difference?
    Thanks

    Do we say either I or my children or either my children and I or it doesn't make any difference? You have to use "or" with "either"; you can't say 'either.....and....'. It doesn't matter if you say "I" or "my children" first.
