Penggunaan

Penggunaan paling umum dari Past Continuous adalah menyatakan atau berbicara tentang sesuatu yang terjadi di sekitar waktu tertentu.  (Digunakan untuk mengungkapkan sesuatu yang sedang berlangsung, tetapi pada waktu lampau)

Pola kalimat Past Continuous adalah:

  • (positif) : Subjek  + to be past ( was/were)  + present participle ( Ving)
  • (negatif) :  Subjek  + to be past ( was/were) +  not + present participle ( Ving)
  • (Kalimat tanya): to be past ( was/were)  + Subjek + present participle (Ving)
    • What were you doing at 8 o’clock last night? I was watching televesion.
      (I started watching television before 8 o’clock and I continued watching it after 8 o’clock.)
      (Saya mulai menonton televisi sebelum jam 8 dan saya terus menontonnya setelah jam 8)
    • In 1999 he was working in a small town in Sumatera.
    • At 6 o’clock on Saturday morning we were travelling to the train station.

Past Continuous dan Past Simple sering digunakan secara bersamaan. Ketika digunakan secara bersamaan, Past Continuous menggambarkan tindakan yang lebih lama, dan merupakan ‘latar belakang’ dari suatu kejadian/peristiwa, sementara past simple menggambarkan kejadian/peristiwanya.

  • When I woke up this morning it was raining and my sister was singing in the kitchen.
  • I was walking home, whistling happily, when I saw two motorcycles crushed at the road next to me.

Seringkali, tindakan/kejadian yang digambarkan oleh Past Tense mengganggu situasi yang sedang berlangsung yang digambarkan oleh Past Continuous.

  • I broke my leg when I was skiing.
  • I was playing a mobile game when the doorbell rang.

(Kedua kejadian diatas terjadi saat mereka sedang skiing dan playing)
