    Default Different Meanings- Interfere/Intervene...

    I am trying to answer a question for my course. I have to state the difference in meaning between
    a) interfere/intervene
    To interfere
    b) When I got there the party started/When I got there the party had started.

    Then I need to state a method I could use in class to enable students to understand the difference.
    Any information or ideas would really be appreciated.
    Thank you.
