  1. Thanks for posting. I’m just learning my way around Cambly to see all of its features. In Q4, you’ve put: Did you ever when a prize? This question should be: Have you ever won a prize? For general experience it is better to teach students to use present perfect, and of course ‘when’ just doesn’t make sense with the question.
