Student or Learner
Iīm having a hardtime with verbs, tenses and all, if you could give me some help, that would be much appreciably! My doubts are basically from how to transform one tense into another.
"I went to get some popcorn. Why didnīt you told me?"
How would I transform this sentence into PAST SIMPLE?
"What were you doing yesterday?"
Want to transform this into PAST CONTINUOUS
"What have you done yesterday at 9 o`clock?"
In this one I would lie to transform it in PAST PERFECT, if I change "What had you done yesterday at 9 o`clock would it be Past Perfect?
Thanks for any help.
Part of the issue here is that these sentences are questions, and in English we often use forms of "to do" to generate questions.
Perhaps it would help to stick to declarative sentences at first. Then see how the word order changes for questions.
Thanks for your corrections, not only in those sentences but also in my previous text, I must overcome my difficulties. HARD WORK HERE!
Thanks Frank, Iīm studiyng verbs and grammar by Murphy`s book, so I will get there (some day... )
Sorry you all!
Iīm the one who is confused here.
The first sentences "I went to get some popcorn. Why didn`t you told me?"
I want please some advice on changing it into PRESENT PERFECT, that`s my doubt..
And a couple more:
"when did you saw him." is this PAST SIMPLE?? Or Should I say "When did you see him?"
"I was eating when you called me." PAST CONTINUOUS?
"When you arrived I was dressing myself." PAST CONTINUOUS? or should I say "When You arrive I am dressing my self?"
"I was waiting there for five hours!" PAST CONTINUOUS?
"I have wrote it slowly." PAST PERFECT?
"I have cleanned the kitchen" PAST PERFECT?
"I have gone when you arrive." arrived? PAST PERFECT?
"When I was young, I was thiner." PAST PERFECT??
"I have been studying chinese for five years." PAST PERFECT CONTINUOUS?
"I had been waiting for the doctor when you arrived." PAST PERFECT CONTINUOUS?
"She has been tired because has been working late." PAST PERFECT CONTINUOUS?
"I had brushed my theeth." PAST PERFECT
"She had been playing tennis?" PAST PERFECT CONTINUOUS??
If you, Mr Moderator, could help me with these that would be great!
All of you have a great day, please!
