They were eating lunch when I arrived.

Oh and I forgot to mention that I was in my room, drying my hair when I got the verbcast message this morning!(not random, we were asked in the message this morning!)


Lol - liked your first example, Anna! Is it true? From your post on "Verbs everywhere" I think it may well be true! Hope your fish enjoyed the performance of pouvoir! Which tense did you perform it in? ;)


The present although they got very enthusiastic and asked me to do it in the perfect tense. Luckily, thanks to the verbcast I could, phew!Lol


I like it Anna!
