    Default As/While/When

    Dear Teacher,

    I donít have enough idea how to use As/When/While to explain the correct sense in a sentence.

    Please check my sentence and explain:

    As/While/When I came back from outside, found a letter lying in front of our entrance door.

    Regards,

    Regards,
    'When I came back' = At the moment I came back.
    'As I came back/was coming back' = During my return.
    'While I came/was coming back' = During my retun. 'While' is more often used with continuous tense.
