I would really like to know the difference between these two sentences:
- Two years ago I was working in New York.
- Two years ago I studied English in England.
The way I interpret them:
means that in 2016 I was working in New York, I started before 2016 and my working was in progress. It is an action occurring at a specific time – that is, two years ago.
I am confused, because I am not sure what it means. Does this sentence mean I started studying in England two years ago, or does it actually mean I was studying in England in 2016, (like my first example) and would past continuous also be possible?
