Simplify Your Language!

Here are some suggestions as to how you could simplify the complex sentences that you studied, so that you could express them even if you only have a fairly basic level of the foreign language :

1. I started learning German three years ago.
2. Perhaps you left it on the bus.
3. He's late!
4. There was another meeting in the room so we couldn't use it.
5. I'm sure he'll arrive late.
