English Grammar - Past Continuous - Structure - Teaching English Online


This video covers the structure and usage of the past continuous tense. This structure of this tense is: Positive: Subject + was/were + present participle. She was working last night. Negative: Subject + was/were + not + present participle. He was not teaching yesterday. Question: Was/were + subject + present participle Was she driving yesterday? The past continuous is used to talk about actions that were in progress at a time in the past. For example: I was watching television last night.

In this unit I learned how to fully assess the learning level of my future pupils, what I should o in order to foster a productive and participatory learning environment, and what not to do during lessons in order to ensure the student's continuous participation. I will be certain to reflect upon this lesson if I encounter problems with student's attentiveness in classes.This unit was a concise review of present tenses and a few tricky concepts such as the difference between for / since or gone / been. The usage is second-nature to native speakers but the definition is actually very difficult. A review of definitions can be very helpful. Particularly the continuous tenses can be difficult to teach, as they do not exist in some languages.
