9.3.1.1 Formazione del simple past continuous

Come abbiamo già visto nel simple present si forma il tempo continuo che corrisponde con il verbo to be. Nel l simple past si utilizza il simple past del verbo to be. Salvo questo, non ce nessuna differenza.
esempio          
  forma di 'to be' + verbo pieno + raddoppiamento della consonante + suffisso -ing = past continuous  
  I was

ing I was reading
  you were

ing you were jumping
  he was
buy
ing he was buying
  we were
sell
ing we were selling
  you were
wait
