Voc: The English teacher was absent...

Hi all of you,

One of the English teachers at Bradful School ( I made that up) was absent, because she was ill. Being an English teacher myself I was called by the school to replace her during the time of her absence.

Did I use replace correctly in this context?
Is during the time of her absence used correctly?


It’s okay but sounds a little stiff and overlong. ‘… during her absence’ would be fine.

Thanks again/ Alex.

''to replace her"

sounds bad to my ear.


There’s nothing wrong with it.



Is it ok if I say: The teacher was absent and the school looked for a replacement?

Thanks Alexandro

It’s okay.

Thanks Beeesneees.
