In case you don't realize it, I'm asking if you used it *while* you were
in the corridor.  What you said was that while you were in the corridor,
you *had* used it.  It makes it sound a lot like when you were together
in the hallway, speaking Chinese was complete.  The meaning I assume you
want and the grammatical implications of what you wrote are at odds with
one another.
