I left out these last sentences. Thank you very much.



1) I was having dinner / I had been having dinner when the telephone rang.
(If the two actions happen at the same time only the past continuous is possible)
2)I'm going to go on a scout camp for two weeks.
I'm going to stay there with forty other students in the age from ten to sixteen.
3) I have't heard from you for a more than a week. I really hope you'll reply to my last email. Next week my workmates will report about their partners to me. It is extremely important for us to get to know your opinion about the partnership.
4) You'll have to keep your money handy because the sales representative will be delivering the books to you by the end of this week.
You'll need to collect the money by tomorrow.
