    Hi,

    clusteres<--------WRONG SPELLING!

    on either side of me = on 我左右方

    I would change your sentence to " past tense".

    The other girls CLUSTERED.......................................................

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    How to use " either"?

    1) Either your teacher or you should come to my meeting.

    ( Your teacher or you ( either one) should come to my meeting.)

    2) You are advised to take either path.

    Path A or Path B ( two paths)<----- You can choose either one.

    3) " either" can also be used in short answers.

    A: I do not like apples.

    B: I do not like apples EITHER. I do not like.... ( negative)

    A: I like apples.

    B: I like apples, too. <------------ I like .......( positive)

    4) Trees are on either side of the road.

    On either side of the road= Trees are on both sides of the road.

    Bye

    5) When you have two choices, you may use " either" as well.

    Example:

    You may either watch TV or do your homework in my house.

    either watch TV or do your homework<--- either XXXXX or XXXXX

    Footnote:

    A: I don't like Chinese dishes.

    B: Neither, do I. ( Here we use" neither" NOT " either".)

    全句意思:

    其他的女孩們 在我的左右方 聚集成群, 還

    興奮地聊天(說閒話)。

    either可以解:(兩者中)的每一方,如:

    He had a bag in either hand.

    他兩手各拿一個提袋。

    所以,on either side of me,即在你左右兩面

    全句:The other girls clusteres , gossiping excitedly, on either side of me. 

    其他的女孩,聚集成群地在我左右兩邊,興奮地說閒話

    希望幫到你!
