- When is the past perfect exactly needed? 3 answers
The last time Lara and I had been to Paris, Lara had told me all about how much you loved living in Paris.
The last time Lara and I had been Paris, she told me all about how much you loved living in Paris.
Her telling me, and our being there is at the same time at a time before the past. So, for the construction to be interpreted that way, are we to use the past perfect following the TOLD, or are to use just the simple past?
If we used the past perfect there, would the time frame mean
Her telling me how much Jenny loved living in Paris- 1st.
Our being somewhere together.- 2nd
My telling someone else what jenny had told me.-3rd. ?
