Journal Entry Error Correction


Look at this journal entry that Cynthia has written. She uses the past continuous a lot! Which examples of the past continuous are mistakes?

I finally spoke to Darren today! I'm so happy. I was leaving the school with Alice, then we went to the ice cream parlor on Grant Avenue and we saw Darren outside. He was talking to his friend, Steve. I went inside with Alice but I know Darren was watching me. I was very excited. We ate some chocolate ice-cream with walnuts - it's new and it was tasting fabulous. I love ice-cream!!

Anyway, after 15 minutes or so, I was leaving the ice cream parlor with Alice when Darren shouted to me. He was still outside! We walked over to them and it was perfect: Alice was talking to Steve and I was talking to Darren. He's gorgeous! I can't remember what we were talking about. Everything and nothing. He asked me if I want to go to watch the big baseball game next weekend. He's playing. I said "yes" (of course!) so I'll see him again.

Now I have to go and do my Biology assignment. Boring!!!! Premium
