    Hi,

    I was talking to Chris in English. We were talking about the past, one thing that we can't forget. I said I remember 10 years ago, when I first started to learn English, I talked to Ken in English and he helped me with that. Now, when I look on the past and that period of time makes me feel very warm and happy. I said:

    That was a memorable time.

    I wonder if describe that past like this.

    Thanks a lot

    You could also say, “I have fond memories of that time”.

    Native speaker said the above, perfect and well-written.

    Non-native the below:

    That was a memorable time.

    Dull and poorly-written

    Thank you so much, Little Ripper.

    Your suggestion works perfectly. Mine was simply an alternative. :)

    I missed that melodious part because I overlooked, I think I need to change my phone and computer system.

    Thanks a lot to both of you, AG, and Little Ripper.
