    Re: sentence

    can you please tell me which one is correct or both are correct:

    I thought you were on your semester break?
    I thought you were on semester break?


    Both are correct, but might ...might be said under different circumstances:

    I thought you were on your semester break?
    This sounds like what a person who doesn't attend/is not a member of staff of the college/university might put it: it is 'your' break - I don't get a 'semester break' because I don't go to college.

    But, in effect, either would be correct.
