I urgently need to know if the following sentences are all possible. Thank you.
1)I didn't know your address but I manged to/was able to/ (but not could) find you.
2) When I was young, I was able/could play the guitar quite well.
3) I called Mary many times yesterday evening, but I wasn't able/couldn't/speak with her. (also: didn't succeed in speaking with her):
4) Would you like to have lunch with me?
5) He invited me to have lunch with him. (NOT: He proposed to have lunch with him/ He proposed having lunch..)
Does the word "writing material" exist?
3. last evening
The term "writing materials" (note the plural form) exists and refers to having pen/pencil and paper at hand.
those sentences seem great to me. With num 3 use (able). Try also to make your sentences as interesting as possible.
