Gilbert: Good, but why did you change the verb "are" to "arrive"?
Karine: Check your verb tenses--you also changed that verb.
Irena: Good--but there is a problem with the verb "are" that I would like you to solve without changing it completely;-)

Irena said...

Sorry Veronica,
I am not sure what the problem is unless ...will be on time...is a better choice.

Irena: That's not the answer either:-( Think difficult verb problems--if nothing comes to you, watch for the answers in the blog on Tuesday.
