hi there! this is something, i want to be clear with.
ok now, if there is an action wich HAPPENED, while a nother action WAS HAPPENING and that action wich happined is in the PAST PERFECT tense, then in what tense will the other one( the action that was happening) be???
can it (usualy) be in the past continue tenses??? like- WAS DOING something????
thanks for your help ;)
If the two actions are at the same time (or almost simultaneous) and short, use the past:
He leapt up when the pohine rang.
If they are are longer actions at the same time, use the past progressive:
While I was working hard, you were sitting around doing nothing.
If one came before the other, use the past perfect for the first (though often we just use the past)
When I got there, everyone had left.
Also, remember that these are generalisations.
