Past Continous e Past Simple

Past Continous


Il Past Continous si forma:

Affermativa

Soggetto+Were/Was+Verbo con -ing.

L'-ing si ottiene così:

Work> Work-ing= Working

se il verbo finisce in L, si raddoppia la consonante e si aggiunge -ing

Travel> Travel-l-ing= Travelling

I was working
You were working

Negativa

Si forma nello stesso modo dell'affermativa. L'unica differenza è che si aggiunge il -not. (I was not working)
La forma contratta è la seguente:

I wasn't working


Interrogativa

Were/was+soggetto+verbo+ing


Was I working?
Yes, you were.
No, you weren't


Were e Was, quando?


Were e was si usano per pronomi differenti.


I was
You were
He/she/it was
We/You/They were

Past Simple
