First time poster here. Please forgive me for violating any rules if I have. I might also be asking a stupid question.
So... I have heard 'being' used in different situations and naturely pick up from what other people say (wrongly perhaps). I am not entirely sure if sentence structures below are correct:
(Noun) being (noun) (verb) ... e.g. English not being my first language does negatively affect my achievement in work.
With (noun) being (noun), ... e.g. With my first language not being English, my achievement in work is negatively affected.
Please kindly point out any mistakes made. Thank you for the help :)
Edit: I wanted clarifications on constructing a sentence after +ing following the noun part. A similar question has been asked before with slightly different sentence structures. Is it correct to use 'being' after a noun?
