    Smile to be occupied in doing sth

    Good evening everyone,

    Is it possible to say: "It seems as if the children are really occupied in doing their tasks?" [orally, as part of a picture description]


    Thank you for your help!

    Michael

    Re: to be occupied in doing sth

    They could be occupied with their tasks, but it's more economical to say they're busy​ with them.
    I am not a teacher.
