I learn pluperfect in German and recently ran into a web-page with English-German examples. One of the example seems to me incorrect, so I am bringing this out to make sure I correctly understand the English grammar.
I had already spoken Chinese as a child, but now I wanted to learn German.
seems to me grammatically incorrect because of now instead of then I strongly believe there must be then there, because now cannot be used in the past. Am I right or wrong? Is there any example of now in the past?
