"During the meeting that Dr. Edward Smith coordinated last month, I had the chance to meet with you and hear the possible projects ..."

English is my second language, and I usually feel that my sentences sound weird and ambiguous, so I need your help.

Is the top sentence meaningful and grammatically correct? Do you have any suggestion to improve it if necessary?

  • I'm voting to close this question for the reason Rathony gives—but as an aside, I don't see anything wrong with the wording in your quotation. – Sven Yargs Jan 10 '16 at 6:00

You wrote: "During the meeting that Dr. Edward Smith coordinated last month, I had the chance to meet with you and hear the possible projects ..." is grammatically correct but not quite idiomatic to a native American English speaker. You might want to say instead, "During the meeting that Dr. Edward Smith coordinated last month, I enjoyed having the opportunity to meet with you and to learn about the possible projects...."

  • Except that "enjoyed" is adding something MEhsan didn't say. Perhaps he didn't enjoy the experience! – Colin Fine Jan 9 '16 at 1:03
