- For Teachers
I'm terribly sorry for the continuous questions. You know, it takes me a long way to the town center of my province in Vietnam to access the Internet!
The original sentence in my teacher's book is:
She had been looking rather miserable recently and they wondered what might have happened to her.
I wonder if I replace looking with seeming or appearing, is the sentence still correct?
And I still don't know why looking can be continuous? I've been taught that look never has the continuous form if it is followed by an adjective.
I hope to receive answers from you soon. Thank you.
