English Grammar – Past Continuous – Teaching Ideas – TESOL
In this video we look at a TESOL teaching idea for the past continuous tense. For this activity students are put into groups and are handed pictures of people doing different activities. The pictures are placed upside down in a pile and the students take it in turns to turn them over. When they have turned over a card they must make a past continuous sentence based on the picture they have. For example: If they turn over a picture of a woman swimming they would say: She was swimming yesterday.
For more advanced students this activity can be used to compare past continuous and past simple. For example: While I was doing the washing up, I broke three plates.
