Hello.

First of all, thanks for all the help and time.

I want to ask a question, that I asked before, but this time I will made my attempt in past tense (last time was in presente tense).

The reason is that I do not know if is I know how to change from present tense to past tense, because I made mistakes. (in the present tense I also made mistakes :roll: but I want to improve my written english.)

"In the living room, Cliff worked with Jess, adjusting the lights, looking for precise angles. Carl and Sue worked in the guest room placing and adjusting the smoke machines."

Thanks.

Thanks.
Note also that "will made" is incorrect; say "will make."
