You can use use the flashcards on this site too. Pick any two cards. Express the events in the past tense. For example: Nick studied chemistry. Nick took a nap. Then, express the two events as one sentence, using the past perfect to show which happened first. “When Nick took a nap, he had already studied chemistry.”
