Last year I was walking to school every day

Use the simple past tense to express a habit in the past, and not the past continuous

Use the past continuous tense to describe events in the past happening at the time another action took place: I was walking to school when I met him.

Next
I'll see you when I shall come back.
I'll see you when I come back

If the verb in the main clause is in the future, the verb in the time clause must be in the present tense

Next
If he had asked me, I would have stayed.
If he would have asked me, I would stay.

Express a counterfactual (that didn't happen) condition by the past perfect and use the past conditional in the main clause. This use of the past perfect doesn't indicate a time but an impossible happening.

Next
The clock struck.
The clock has struck.

If we are speaking of an action just finished, we must use the present perfect instead of the simple past tense. For example, immediately after the clock strikes, we shouldn't say The clock struck, but The clock has struck.

Next
Since he came, we're happy.
Since he came, we've been happy

The verb after a since clause of time is generally in the present perfect tense.
