Thank you very much. I just have one more question.

I've written a paragraph on Wordsworth's life using the past. At the end I included the following sentence:
The power of his imagination enabled him to communicate his knowledge, so that he becomes (not became) a moral teacher who shows men how to understand their feelings and improve their moral being.

Which one is correct? Become or became?

  • English -

    Since you used "enabled" in the first clause, I'd use "became" in the second clause.
