Past continuous in english

To speak in the past tense in English we have two conjugations: the past simple (past simple) and the past continuous or progressive (past continuous or progressive). Let’s look at their rules of use and how they differ so that we can travel to the past without getting dizzy.

I was walking along the road when I saw Dave. So I stopped and we had a chat (I was walking along the road when I saw Dave. So I stopped and we had a chat) – everything that happens after you saw your friend while you were walking has to be in the past simple.

Be careful with static and dynamic verbs in English. There are some verbs such as querer (to want) or saber (to know) classified as static verbs. Well, when conjugating this type of verbs we can only use simple forms such as the past simple and never continuous forms such as the past continuous.

Perhaps this is a good time to remember how to conjugate both past tenses in English. We should never take anything for granted, especially when it comes to grammar, so here is a good grammar refresher to understand the past simple and the past continuous.

Past simple and past continuous exercise

One of the keys to improve your level in English is to control the nuances of different verb tenses and to know when to use each one of them. Today we are going to review the past continuous tenses: the past continuous, the present perfect continuous and the past perfect continuous.

This tense is used to talk about actions that have started in the past but last up to the present or have recently ended. We want to emphasize the results of the action in the present.

The past perfect continuous is used to talk about actions that were occurring before another. As with the past continuous, we use this tense to talk about the action that was in progress and the past simple for the action that interrupts it. Since we are talking about periods of time, we can use for and since.
