    never knew

    I never knew you had a twin sister.
    I never knew Egypt was so large.

    In the two sentences above, could we use 'have' and 'is' instead?

    Could I ask native English teachers to help me please? Thank you very much.

    I am a student. But I just want to give this a try.

    Re: never knew

    In this case, both "is" and "was" are fine. Right?
