Hi

Hi

I did not choose "Leila is finishing the soup very quickly" because, to me, that expression is in the Present tense.

With these two answers it seems you are teaching that Passé Simple is past tense and present tense. I am confused.

Why should I have chosen, Leila is finishing...?

Hi Michael, I think you must have overlooked this note in the lesson:

Note that for regular -IR verbs, the je/tu/il/elle/on forms of le Passé Simple are exactly the same as for le Présent. The context will help you know which tense is intended in those cases.

I missed that note!

Thank you...I'll review the lesson again.

Oh I made the same mistake! Worse, I actually did read it but then disregarded it in my mind. 

The good thing is that I'll learn from my mistake! (hopefully)
