Let say you know someone is coming over to your house, so when he/her shows up at your door which of the following sentences is more logical to say to the person:

1) I know you are coming.

2) I knew you were coming.

3) I knew you are coming.

Which one makes more sense and why?

No. 2.
The knowing and coming are both in the past.
I believe that sentence 1: I know you are coming is also correct.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
1. is not correct because they have already arrived. If they are on your doorstep they are no longer 'coming' - they are there.
Nona The Brit1. is not correct because they have already arrived. If they are on your doorstep they are no longer 'coming' - they are there.
But say you discuss the party with them over the phone. You may want to use then:
1) I know you are coming.

Hi

"when he/her shows up at your door "
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
New2grammarwhen he/her shows up at your door
And that should be corrected to "when he/sheshows up at your door" while we're at it. Emotion: smile
