Hi Teachers,

I've rewritten this paragraph from my previous one. Could you help me correct it please?

Arthur, Deborah’s husband, got up really early this morning. He got up at six thirty because he wanted to take the eight o’clock train to London. Unfortunately, when he arrived at the train station the train wasn’t there. Arthur was puzzled, so he told the station attendant, Where's the train? It’s only seven fifty-five and it always leaves at eight. The station attendant said, "The train left at eight sharp. It's now five after eight. Your watch is ten minutes slow."

Thanks in advance

Hi Clive,

Thank you so much for your correction and help.

One more question, is it at 'six-thirty' or 'six thirty'? Someone, who is British, told me to use a hyphen between them.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi,

Use the hyphen.

But - in today's English, I think many people are pretty casual about hyphens. Including me!

Hi Clive,

Thanks again for your reply.
