    "Because he had been born into a poor family, he left school at the age of 10.."



    ---> Being born/ Born / Having been born in a poor family, he left........

    which is the best of the 3 for rephrasing ??

    thanks

    Creo que la mejor, para mi personalmente, es tu tercera opción, "Having been born".

    Si, la mejor es "having been born," pero tambien puedes usar solamente "Born" con la preposicion "into."
