Sequence of tenses : The Student and the Rose (2) (en modif
HOW TO USE TENSES CORRECTLY IN TEXTS.(2)
Be careful ! Such a title obviously announces all kinds or traps ... Once again, you won't only have to use 'the right tenses', but also the right voice or form (active or passive), to pay attention to the context, to the sequence of tenses and also to the form of the speech which is used (direct or reported), so as to make the necessary adjustments !
This part is the sequel of Part 1.The story is logical, the text and the tenses must be coherent. Take advantage of all the clues which are given to you, the milestones which are indicated, the words playing the role of time-markers (which are given or just alluded to). All these elements will help you find THE RIGHT verbal form!
THE STUDENT AND THE ROSE (Part 2 )
Here, we are still in the universe of fairy-tales ... The young Student in Love had planned to go to the Prince's Ball, and to bring his beloved Lady the supremely romantic present : a red rose.
He loved her and would like to build a future with her. Unfortunately, in the wonderful garden where he was crying passionately, there were no such roses : There were yellow roses, white roses for sure, multitudes of flowers of different colours... but no red roses !
Among the animals of the garden, a nightingale decided to help him and did her best to find a solution ... in vain ! But the white rose-tree restored hope ...
Are you ready to go on ? Think well ...
This story was adapted from The Nightingale and the Rose by Oscar Wilde.
