Simple Past Continuous Tense

Simple Past Continuous Tense : Dipergunakan untuk menyatakan suatu perbuatan atau peristiwa yang sedang berlangsung pada waktu lampau.

Pattern : S + to be (was, were) + V 1 (ing) + …………………

Example :

I was watching TV when you came (+)

She was studying when you phoned (+)

They were swimming at nice yesterday morning (+)

  1. Jika kita hendak membuat kalimat tanya (interrogative) maka to be (was, were) kita letakan di muka subjek.

    Example :

    Were you watching TV when I phoned you ?

    Was he studying English while I was listening to the radio ?

  2. Jika kita hendak membuat kalimat menyangkal (negative) maka kita menambahkan not (n’t) di belakang to be (was, were)

    Example :

    I was not (wasn’t) watching TV when you phoned me.

    Rian and Ellys were not (weren’t) sleeping when I sang a song last night.


Time Signal : when, while, as, all day yesterday, the whole day last Monday, yesterday, last night, etc.
