Does the verb "continue" always require an action-describing word right after it? Can I drop it if the action is clear from the context?
For example, can I say:
Throughout the whole first semester Linda remained passive and didn’t participate much. She was never naughty, but didn’t show any enthusiasm either. In the first half of the second semester she continued in the same way.
or should I say
...she continued to behave in the same way
