Daca la Present Continuous avem ‘to be‘ la Prezent, aici vom folosi ‘to be’ la trecut. Verbul +Ing ramane la fel. Nu se schimba. For example:

  • I am doing my best. Fac tot ce pot. (Prezent Continuu)
  • I was doing my best. Faceam to ce puteam. (Trecut Continuu)
  • You are walking. Tu mergi. (acum) Prezent Continuu
  • You were walking. Tu mergeai. (Trecut Continuu.)

Ce exprima Trecutul Continuu?

Asa cum poti intelege si din numele sau, exprima o actiune continua in trecut. Nu este nevoie sa stii perioada in care are loc actiunea. Este de ajuns sa stii ca aceasta se afla in desfasurare sau progress in trecut.

  • What were you doing yesterday?  Ce faceai ieri?
  • I was cleaning my room. Imi faceam curatenie in camera.

Ma intereseaza un anumit moment din trecut. Nu intreb:

  • What did you do yesterday? Ce ai facut ieri?

Trecutul Continuu – actiune in desfasurare in trecut

Ma intereseaza progresul sau desfasurarea unei actiuni in trecut in raport cu o alta actiune sau moment.

  • What were you doing at this time, yesterday? Ce faceai ieri pe vremea asta?
  • What were you doing yesterday when I called you? Ce faceai ieri cand te-am sunat?

Nu conteaza cat de departe sau aproape in timp se afla acel moment din trecut fata de prezent.

  • You were thinking about something else. You were not paying attention to me. What were you thinking about?

Te gandeai la altceva. Nu erai atent/a la mine. La ce te gandeai?

Trecutul Continuu – actiune continua intrerupta de actiune in trecut

Trecutul Continuu poate exprima o actiune in desfasurare in trecut, intrerupta la randul ei de o alta actiune in trecut. Avem Past Contnuous si Past Simple Tense. For example:

  • I was coming home when I saw our friend. Veneam acasa cand am vazut pe prietenul nostru.
  • She was having a bath when the phone rang. Ea facea baie cand a sunat telefonul.
  • There were getting ready to leave when we arrived. Ei se pregateau sa plece cand am ajuns noi.

Pot folosi trecutul continuu, intrerupt de o actiune in trecut si la forma negativa.

  • She wasn’t paying attention to the road when she collided with another car. Nu era atenta la drum cand s-a lovit de o alta masina.
  • I wasn’t looking at you when you called me. Nu ma uitam la tine cand m-ai strigat.
  • You weren’t doing anything when she walked in. Nu faceai nimic cand a intrat ea.

Pot folosi trecutul continuu, intrerupt de o alta actiune la trecut, la forma interogativa. For example:

  • What were you doing when I called you? Ce faceai cand te-am chemat/ sunat?
  • Who were you talking to when we saw you? Cu cine vorbeai/vorbeati cand te-am/v-am vazut?

Actiiuni in progres in trecut in acelasi timp

Pot folosi trecutul continuu pentru a exprima doua actiuni care aveau loc in acelasi timp in trecut. For example:

  • She was reading while I was washing the car. Citea in timp ce eu spalam masina.
  • He was playing the guitar while she was eating. El canta la chitara in tip ce ea manca.

Pot folosi si forma interogativa cu doua actiuni concomitente. For example:

  • Was he really playing the guitar while she was eating? Chiar canta la chitara in timp ce ea manca?
