"I found you while you were teaching"

Translation:Nilikukuta ukifundisha

June 25, 2019



I don't understand when you use the extra verbs "ulikuwa" or "ulipokuwa." In one example, I saw you when you were... the lesson says to use the -po- form. But in this example, I saw you while... neither form is used. Is the -kuwa form optional before the -ki- form?


Niliwakuta mkifundisha should also be approved (reported Jul' 19)


"Nilikukuta ulipokuwa ukifundisha" should be the right answer here, I believe.
