Are a) and or b) correct? If not why?

a) Je dormais quand tu m'as interrompu OR b) J'étais dormir quand tu... In sentence b) is être redundant as the verb dormir can be used?

Bonjour Andrea,

You can say :

a. je dormais quand tu m’as interrompu

b. j’étais endormi quand tu m’as interrompu

 

 

dormir = to sleep

être endormi to be asleep

s’endormir to fall asleep

endormir = to get [sb] to sleep

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!
