Dear Sons,

So let's start: (Let's put the show on the road)

Part One

The Past Continuous Tense

Look at these examples and get the rule:

  • He was studying his lessons last night.

  • She was reading a book when the phone rang.

  • We were writing a letter when the lights went out.

  • While we were buying ice cream, we saw a car accident.

From the above sentences we can get the rule of The Past Continuous Tense. It's as follows:
The Rule
