1)I sat on the terrace, drinking coffee. From there I could see the vineyard and olive groves bellow me
- Why do we use drinking here but not drank?
- Why use could here since could doesn't imply the idea" achievement on a particular occasion in the past", I think it would be better if we have were able to here. How about you?
2)She was planning to ring her friend but she forgot
Can I use: She was to ring her friend....
3) Every child will have chance to go to vocational school or schools?
Thanks in advance
