    Post past simple and continuous

    Dear all,
    Would you mind correcting the past simple and continuous verbs in the following sentences?
    Thanking you.
    1. The first time I saw them, they were playing football in the park.
    2. I couldn’t sleep because my neighbors were arguing very loudly last night.
    3. The exam lasted nearly three hours.
    4. When I was walking into the room, every one stopped talking.

    All okay except the last one. When I walked into the room, everyone stopped talking.
