    mrs foran

    Heeeelp,
    Can you tell me which tenses the following sentences are in:

    She had had that dog since she was ten.

    He became a recluse in later life.

    I met Mark as i was walking to the shops

    I am pulling my hair out trying to understand the different verb tenses.

    Much appreciated,

    Let me try:
    She had had that dog since she was ten. - past perfect
    He became a recluse in later life. - past simple
    I met Mark as i was walking to the shops - past continuous
    Teachers, am I right? :)

    Dzmitry's right. Some people say 'past progressive' instead of 'past continuous' and you will see 'simple past' used as an alternative word order.
