As long as I live I will remember the day, Barack Obama was inaugurated as president.

ANASTASIA: Well done!
JOANNE: You need to rethink this one--you have added an adverb clause of time but also added an independent clause;-)

Joanne T said...

Thanks Veronica. I had trouble with this one. Is this better?

I will always remember when, Barak Obama was inaugurated as president.

JOANNE: That's still not a time clause, and don't use a comma after 'when'. Check pg. 72 of your textbook for help with time clauses;-)
