Past continuous

Contingut exercicis

We make the past continuous with the past tense of the verb “to be” and by adding -ing to the main verb.

was / were + verb -ing

He was waiting for the train.

You were spending money.

We use the past continuous to talk about the past:

  • To show that something continued for some time:

Everyone was dancing.

  • For something that was happening again and again:

They were meeting secretly after work.

  • With verbs which show change or growth:

Her German was improving.

 

We usually use the past continuous to express something which continued before and after another action. The other action is usually expressed using the past simple:

While I was watching television the telephone rang.
