Having left the country in 1964, just as Ling Tung University was being established, at the time, I wasn't aware that it was such a big university with so many departements.

1. Is my original sentence grammatically correct?

2. I wanted to say that I havn't heard of such a university back home since I left the country so early. Can I say:

Having left the country in 1964, just as Ling Tung University was being established, I am not aware that it is such a big university with so many departements.


Thanks.

Sorry. It was ungrammatical. :(

But, you are aware now, at this moment, so I'd use "I wasn't aware that is it... / I didn't know that it is.... :D

What's wrong?

Hi bmo,

the tense in the second part of the sentence isn't correct:

Having left the country in 1964, just as Ling Tung University was being established, I did not know that it is such a big university with so many departments.


I'll try:

Having left the country in 1964, just as Ling Tung University had been established, I didn't know that it was such a big university with so many departments.

Please let somebody else check this :wink: :idea:
