Mensagem:  Hello I was typing some exercises to my students and then I came up with this phrase: Ann brought her daughter to spend her holiday with us. After writing I had noticed that the clause is ambiguous (who is going to spend her holiday with us? Ann or her daughter?) as I was rushed I left the phrase this way ,but the question still remains in my mind...can anyone help me to fix this phrase? I'd like a way that I wouldn't need to express the word "Ann" or "her daughter" twice, is that possible? Thanks in advance.
