Hi, everybody

Please help:

"Happy to know that you guys like the cookies. Oh yea, and they are perfect match with coffee. Very often, Tommy and I can finish the whole box in few days!"

1. Is the first sentence correct without the subject like "I am" or "We are"?

2. Is the second sentence correct using the subject "they are"( I refer it to cookies) or I can simply use "It is"?

3. Do I need to use the article "the" before coffee?

4. For my last sentence, I want to express the fact that we love the cookies very much that we can finish the whole box very fast. How can I describe it in a more vivid way in English? Could you give me example? Thank you!

Hi,

1. Is the first sentence correct without the subject like "I am" or "We are"? Yes, but only in casual, informal English, usually written.

2. Is the second sentence correct using the subject "they are"( I refer it to cookies) or I can simply use "It is"? Say 'they are'. 'Cookies' is plural.

3. Do I need to use the article "the" before coffee? No.

4. For my last sentence, I want to express the fact that we love the cookies very much that we can finish the whole box very fast. How can I describe it in a more vivid way in English? Could you give me example? eg Tommy and I can't stop eating them!

Clive, thanks a lot!
1. Yes, but only in informal writing. It would be okay in an email or even a book, but not in an essay.

2. Yes, since "they" refers to a plural noun, cookies. However, you're missing an article before "perfect match" and you misspelled the word yeah. "Oh yeah, and they are a/the perfect match with coffee." You would use the singular article because you're talking about them collectively, by the way.

3. You don't need the article the unless you're trying to point to a specific batch of coffee. If you're talking about "the coffee you bought me" or "the coffee I told you about," then you should use the article. If you're talking about coffee in general, however, don't.

4. "Let's just say, the box didn't last very long."
