6th bel311 class grammar and tenses class

On 17.12.2012, class bel311 was held at dsp.The wheter was unpredictable as it sunny then it became raining out of sudden. Eventho it was raining day, still I make a run through the rain to go over there. Miss Zur organize another activity today for bel311 class. In the beginning of the class, Miss Zur say to us that she was worried about our grammar mistakes. There were a critical problems on our grammar mistakes. Miss zur wants to polish our grammar skill to prevent more coming mistake especially on our outline task and blogger. The way to improve our grammar and to prevent us from making more grammar mistakes is we must make the grammar as one of importance in our life. Another way to improve english vocabulary is by speak english frequently even if we get it wrong at first, eventually we will get the correct one.

We use the past continuous tense to describe a past action over a period of time
Q) "What were they doing yesterday?" A) "They were working all day.

 Past Continuous : We use the past continuous to say that somebody was in the middle of doing something at a certain time. The action or situation had already started before this time but had not finished.

Compare the past continuous (I was doing) and past simple (I did): Past continuous (in the middle of an action)

  1. I was walking home when I met Dave. (in the middle of walking home) 
  2. Ann was watching televison when the phone rang. Past simple (complete action) 
  3. I walked home after the party last night. 
  4. Ann watched televison a lot when she was ill last year

Past simple and past continuous are used together when something happened in the middle of something else

Tom burnt his hand when he was cooking the dinner.
I saw you in the park yesterday.  You were sitting on the grasss and reading a book.
While I was working in the garden, I hurt my back.
