    Re: Past Simple/Progressive?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Is this a test for school?

    (Your member profile shows that you are a native English speaker. If that's the case, most of these should be really easy for you.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hi,

    This is a homework assignment. And yes, I am a native English speaker, but that doesn't mean my English is perfect. I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me. Thanks.
