    Dear Dessi, your work was posted in a separate post. It’s OK. Your homework had no mistakes.

    So Clara, make sure you check Dessi’s, OK. Clara, the first present participle clause is wrong (both are prsent cont.) and the other two are not what I was looking for, though, yes, they are -ing forms on their own.

    So we need to review this in class, together, OK? Please, bring it up! Check Dessi’s and see if you realize the difference! See you! ‚̧

    And thanks for doing your homework and letting us know! ‚̧ ‚̧ ‚̧

    This is an overview, and what I meant is called “participle phrases”, have a look:

    FOUND IT!!! This will be very useful for you, I think: read it and let me know (and there’s a video, too)
