Hardly ... when or Hardly... than?
This is what I found in Oxford dictionary:
Hardly had she spoken than she regretted it bitterly.
Hardly had we arrived than the problems started.
But they also say:
Hardly/Scarcely had we sat down at the table, when the phone rang. Note that you usually use when in these sentences, not than
not a teacher
Did you copy the word correctly? I thought 'than' (used for comparison) should be 'then'(at that time) A conjunction (as/but/because/when etc) is required to connect the two clauses. 'When' is more appropriate.
2) a very cheerful an energetic woman, Joyce's always first to sign up when there's work to be done
Why not the first but first?
Joyce is always the first
