MELHORE SEU INGLÊS PODCAST 116 – Past continuous (I was doing)

Yesterday Karen and Joe played tennis. They started at
10 o’clock and finished at 11.30.
So, at 10.30 they were playing tennis.

they were playing = they were in the middle of playing, they had not finished

was/were + -ing is the past continuous:

I was doing something = I was in the middle of doing it at a certain time.

The action or situation started before this time, but had not finished:

This time last year I was living in Hong Kong.
What were you doing at 10 o’clock last night?
I waved to Helen, but she wasn’t looking

Compare I was doing (past continuous) and I did (past simple)

I was doing (= in the middle of an action)

We were walking home when I met Dan. (in the middle of walking home)

I did (= complete action)

We walked home after the party last night. (= all the way, completely)

I was doing (= in the middle of an action)

Kate was watching TV when we arrived.

I did (= complete action)

Kate watched TV a lot when she was ill last year

You can say that something happened (past simple) in the middle of something else (past continuous)

Matt phoned while we were having dinner.

It was raining when I got up.

I saw you in the park yesterday. You were sitting on the grass and reading a book.

I hurt my back while I was working in the garden.

But we use the past simple to say that one thing happened after another:

I was walking along the road when I saw Dan. So I stopped, and we talked for a while.

Some verbs (for example, know and want) are not normally used in continuous forms (is + -ing, was + -ing etc.).

We were good friends. We knew each other well. (not we were knowing)

I was enjoying the party, but Chris wanted to go home. (not was wanting)

The following verbs are not normally used in the present continuous:

like | want | need | prefer | know | realise | understand | recognise |
believe | suppose | remember | mean | belong | fit | contain | consist seem |
