    comma splice

    During our meal is when we all come together as a family, where we catch up with our life.

    What do i do where there is comma, should i add "because that when we ...."


    "... depended on the nature for their food,..."
    where the word "the" my teacher highlighted it and wrote art. So what changes should i put in?

    Hi. I don't know if I'll be able to answer all your questions because I don't understand all you've written... (please try not to forget writing question marks because, in spite of the fact that sometimes it can be understood that you are asking something, it'll help you in not making many grammar mistakes)

    *"because that when we" --->This is grammatically incorrect

    *Your teacher wrote 'art' (=article) because you mustnīt put an article before 'nature'. (the correct for would be: "... depended on nature for their food,..."
