1. Is it possible to use "recently" with the Past Continuous Tense?
Example: They were working in Germany recently.
2. I later wrote to my grandfather. What does "later" mean in this sentence??? Shouldn't I use it just at the end???
3. I'm going to work in Peru never. / I'll see you never.
Why was "never" used at the end???
I saw these sentences in a book (Upper-Intermediate) and I'm sure you can help me.
Thank you so much!
1- Yes. The 'rule' about the present perfect doesn't reflect usage- we often use 'recently' with the past.
2- after that point in time. It's OK where it is, but at the end would be more usual.
3- I wouldn't put 'never' there. You might hear it in colloquial speech as a way of raising the dashing someone's expectations.
