· 文法跟讀單元 In-Tense

Welcome to 15mins.today the home of English Shadowing. I am your host Gavin and this is In-Tense Episode 13. Now in this episode today we will be looking at the past perfect tense and we use this tense for something that has finished at some point in the past but it finished before something else happened.

So basically something finished, that's what we use it for and then something followed that event for example, “I had walked to the cafe and then I came home.” Great, so don't forget we use it for something that finished in the past, but it has been followed by something else. So let's do our questions.
