Hi, I hope you can help me with this doubt.
One of my students wrote today this: I went to a party in my aunt's house. I was spending my time when suddenly...
My question is about the expression "I was spending my time". I don't think it is common to say that, so, how would you express what she meant?
You say , I went to a party at my aunt's house. Like Bhaisahab mentioned you need to know what he /she was doing there...
"I was enjoying myself, I was having a good time, I was whiling away my time....." can be suitable options.
papirrines, please note that a better thread title would have been 'I was spending my time'.
Extract from the Posting Guidelines:
