    he was at us?..

    Как сказать по-английски "он был у нас"? He was at us?.. at our place?...
    Например, "сегодня утром он был у нас".

    Спасибо.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Maybe it's:

    He was with us.

    He came by this morning (but we were not at home)
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.

    No you can't. He was with us means something different.

    у нас = at our place

    I think that may be more American than British. I think in Britain we would be more likely to say At our's
