Can you explain grammatically the construction if this phrase? I get that it means "we got home from school", but it seems unnecessarily complicated. Could you not say "nous étions retourné de l'école"?
Freeform Writing Exercise B1
The two expressions we accept for 'to be home / back from school' are
être de retour de l'école
être rentré de l'école
'retourné is wrong here.
Bonne continuation !
Thank you Cécile ! I was confused by the "de"s in the phrase, but I see they are just a part of the phrase.
