I don't really understand the difference between た/ている/plain form + とき. I want to understand this form so, if you can give me a lot of examples and explanations, I'll be grateful !

Thanks !!

The only differences between these three are the tense of the verb. Attaching 〜時{とき} holds the same function in all three cases.

  1. 〜た:past tense
    • 行ったとき。。。When (I) went...
    • 勉強したとき。。。When (I) studied...
  2. 〜ている: present progressive (continuous) tense
    • 行っているとき、。。。When (I) am going...
    • 勉強しているとき。。。When (I) am studying...
  3. plain form:
    • 行くとき、。。。When (I) go...
    • 勉強するとき。。。When (I) study...
