Hi all.

Is it idiomatic to use the word "find" in this context? Thank you very much.

Thank you very much Raymott. I am happy to hear that, really.

My teacher corrected me as she would say:


  • Even if we have families and are busy with work, we should be able to spend (some) quality time with our friends. She added that my original sentence was not idiomatic. :cry:

Well, you have to find the time before you can spend the time. You are correct.
