Based on the explanation given below for narrative tenses, could you tell me if I can use an adjective before ‘events’ in the phrase ‘… the time of the events’? Is it better to rephrase it? Suggestions are more than welcome.
Narrative tenses using the Past Progressive
It is used to describe the situation(s) in which the event(s) of the narrative was/were occurring. In other words, we use the past progressive to describe other events and actions that were in progress at the time of events.
To me it seems a bit confusing for the students because we have already used the word ‘events’ previously. Knowing that they refer to different events, I just don’t know if the students will see it so clearly.
Thanks in advance
