Plus-que-parfait vs imparfait
Why is "She had been dreaming" (in the writing exercise) translated with the imparfait "Elle rêvait" instead of the plus-que-parfait "Elle avait rêvé"?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate regular -er, -ir, -dre verbs (+ avoir) in Le Plus-que-parfait (pluperfect tense)"

Could you let me know which writing exercise this refers to or the context ?
Hi Cécile, It is the May 25 Writing Challenge, Level B1: Trip to Paris
Kwiziq does not allow me to do the challenge more than once so I cannot show you the English sentence, but I think it was "She'd been dreaming of it (the trip) for ever, and the given translation is "Elle en rêvait depuis toujours."
