Interested in Language
I know while can often be troublesome.
In most cases I don't know which tense I have to use.
I drive a car and someone is asking me questions and I say:
Please don't ask questions all the time while I'm driving.
Please don't ask questions all the time while I drive.
I always thought that while must automatically be used with the "Gerund".
While I'm driving, I'm not drinking.
While I drive, I don't drink.
However, I remember that it's also important how long 2 processes take.
While I was sleeping, the power failure happened.
(Sleeping = long process; power failure = very short process.)
But this could probably be a completely different story than the other sentences I wrote.
Maybe some of you can write a couple of sentences which describe the correct usage of while.
Would be very nice because I often want to use while.
