Aquí está el texto que estoy leyendo:

Texto en inglés: pasado simple, continuo y perfecto

Susan had a party last week. She had invited all her friends to her house. She had invited her friends from work, her friends from university, and her friends from her neighborhood. The guests started arriving at around 7 o’clock for dinner.

Susan’s best friend, Cindy, was there, wearing a red dress. And Susan’s boyfriend, Tom, was wearing a blue suit and looked very handsome.

Cindy’s boyfriend wasn’t there, because he was travelling for business. He was negotiating a big contract in Sao Paolo that day. He had left the day before, and wouldn’t be back for two more days.

Susan had made lasagna, which was very good. She had made enough lasagna for 30 people! She had also made salad and stuffed eggplant. Everything was delicious.

Her friends brought wine to the party. Everybody talked and drank wine and had a good time. While they were eating, they talked about their lives and about the political situation in their country (which was terrible, like everywhere else).

Susan hadn’t made anything for dessert, so they ate chocolate ice cream, which was delicious.

Around 11 o’clock everyone left, except Cindy, who stayed to help Susan clean up.

Some people caught taxis to go home, and some people took the subway. Other people walked.

After Susan and Cindy had finished cleaning up, they sat on the sofa and had another glass of wine and relaxed. It had been a good night, and they were both very tired.

Buen aprendizaje,

Daniel.
