3 GRAMMAR The past continuous
Use the past continuous to talk about an action that was in progress at a specific time in the past. It was working at this time yesterday. They weren’t working at this time yesterday. They were running for help.

4 past continuous [was/were + verb + ing] When we use past continuous?
The past continuous is formed from the past tense of be with the -ing form of the verb When we use past continuous? For actions happening at some time in the past TENSE I He/She/It We/They/You Present am is are past was were

5 The Past Continuous ( or past progressive )
How can we make the past continuous? Firstly, check that you know how to make the past simple with 'be' (subject + was / were). Then just add verb-ing. POSITIVE FORM : I was sleeping you were working NEGATIVE FORM : you were not (weren't) working he was not (wasn't) coming

6 Questions with past continuous
We have 2 ways to make question sentences : 'yes / no' question 'wh' question / information just like the past simple with 'be', to make a 'yes / no' question, put 'was / were' in front of the subject To make a 'wh' question (of course) put the question word at the beginning

7 EXAMPLES Was I listening? Were you working? Was she working?
Were they studying? Why was I working? Where were you living? How was she travelling? Where was he going?

8 Past Simple Vs Past Continuous
Here's a quick reminder of the rules of using past simple and past continuous together In this sentence there are two verbs: I was watching television when he arrived. The first action is a long action - it lasted for a period of time. We therefore use the past continuous. The second action is a short action that has interrupted the first. So for this we need past simple!

9 EXAMPLES The children (play) ………….. in the park when it started to rain. I was watching a movie when I (notice) ………. him standing outside. She arrived when I (have) ………… a bath, so I couldn't answer the door! I (see) ……….. a famous celebrity when I was shopping on Oxford Street yesterday. I (live) ………. in Cape Town when Michelle Obama visited. Answers : were playing – noticed – was having - saw – was living
