Pattern of Past Continuous Tense

Hello.. Nice to meet you again. Here we are in this lesson . We will study about Past Continuous tense.

What is past continuous tense? Past continuous tense is used to express a continued or ongoing action in the past, an ongoing action which occurred in the past and completed at some point in the past.

Past continuous tense ini biasanya juga digunakan untuk menunjukkan dua kejadian yang terjadi pada saat yang bersamaan di waktu lampau, tetapi satu kejadian terjadi lebih awal dan masih sedang berlangsung ketika kejadian kedua terjadi. Lihatlah contoh kalimat di bawah ini :

"Yesterday Diana and Batara played tennis. They began at 10 o'clock and finished at 11.30. So, at 10.30 they were still playing tennis."

Pada kalimat “They were still playing tennis” ini berarti pada jam 10.30 mereka masih sedang di tengah-tengah permainan tenis.”
