1. ## paint the scenery

Ming-ting and her classmates took a bus to the zoo last weekend. On the bus, one of them was listening to the music, while two of them were playing cards, and the others were singing the songs happily. Soon after, they arrived at the zoo. In the zoo, they took photos with the elephant, shook hands with the monkey, and painted the scenery in the zoo. They also interacted/played with many animals. After playing in the zoo, they enjoyed their meal in a fast food restaurant. They ordered lots of Cokes, fries, and hamburgers. They talked and laughed about funny things which happened on that day. What a nice day!

Your member profile shows that you are an English teacher so you should be able to correct any errors (if there are any) yourself.

Yes, there is no reason to use the past continuous tense there.

So did no one else think that contiluo should have been able to make those corrections himself/herself?

Surely an English teacher would have no trouble doing that.
