Tercera lección de nuestro curso de inglés en su nivel para principiantes. Hoy vamos a dedicarnos por completo a las preguntas y respuestas en pasado continuo, por ejemplo: "What were you doing last week?" "We were working all week": "¿Qué estabas (estaban) haciendo la semana pasada?" Estuvimos trabajando toda la semana.
Beginner - office talk
This lesson is all about past continuous questions and answers.
What were you doing last week? I was studying for my exam. We were working all week.
First we will review some words about work. How are the clients at your job? Clients are people who buy products or services. In your job, do you have to talk in front of many people? This is called a presentation. Sometimes we use pictures in a presentation. A projector shows the pictures on the wall.
We are going to watch a video. A worker is talking to his boss.
Lets talk about the grammar. Sometimes, we use past actions that continued for some time. We show that they continued using the past continuous. Read these sentences:
"I was studying last week. They were studying last week." Notice how they use to "to be" in the past: "was" and "were". "Was" is for "I",
"he", "she" and "it". "Were" is for "you", "we" and "they". We add "-ing" to the main verb. This is the past continuous. It shows that the action was continuing in the past.
I will show you sentences from the video with some words missing. Read these sentences and guess which works are missing:
"So tell me, what _____ you doing when I was away last week?" "Well, I _____ working pretty hard all week."
Let try another:
"What ____ John doing during the presentation?" "He ____ helping me with the projector".
Today we have practiced past continuous questions and answers. "What were you doing last week?" "We were working all week".
