Thank you Peter for answering me so kindly, I just have only a doubt. Can I put the question without "each other"? So: " We haven't seen for some time". Thank you again for your patience. Bye bye!

Hello lellablu,

No, that's not correct. 'each other' is needed in the sentence because 'see' is a transitive verb, i.e. it requires an object. You could use a different object, e.g. 'I haven't seen you in some time', but of course the meaning is slightly different.

Hello again....

I heard that there is a Carolina's blog somewhere here and could you tell me if it's true and where can I write to her.... Sorry Carolina as you know is a person from Elementary Podcasts.

Best wishes

Hello everyone! I'm not able to find the right way to say "we haven't seen each other for sometime". I think it isn't correct. I hope you understand what I want to say. Can you help me please? Thank you very much.

Hello lellablu,

That sentence is almost fine. You just need to change 'sometime' to 'some time'.

Best wishes,

Hello! Could you please tell me the right way to answer when somebody meet you saying: "Nice to meet you". Is it right "Me too"? Thank you very much.
