    Default would verb + verb in past tense

    Hi,

    Any different (in term of meaning and grammar) between, eg, "would prastice" and "prasticed"?

    Could you please explain my question based on my following 2 sentences?

    Finally, which sentence is more appropriate?

    Sentence1:
    3 years ago, when I was a teacher, in each lesson my students would prastice the questions on an exercise sheet and I would help them with their problem.

    Sentence2:
    3 years ago, when I was a teacher, in each lesson my students prasticed the questions on an exercise sheet and I helped them with their problem.

    Thanks.

    The verb is "practise". I would use the simple past version.
