My friend called me early in the morning to get ready to leave for picnic.

I replayed him

"We are already woke up and doing packing."

Is the use of We are already woke up is correct?

  • Too complex to say what you want. "We woke up and are (now) packing." woke up is a completed action so you don't need already. – user3169 Oct 22 '17 at 20:46
  • Can woke up be status of completed action like we are done. We – user4084 Oct 23 '17 at 0:59

No, it is not correct and neither is the second part "doing packing". It should read either,

"We are already awake and [are] packing." (adjective)


"We have already woken up and [have] started packing." (past participle)


"We have already woken up and are now packing." (past participle and present continuous with emphasis using "now")
