Focus on meaning (10-13 minutes) • To allow students to get the rules of the grammatical pattern themselves.

We use the simple past to talk about events, actions or situations which happened in the past. * Did Sam phone us in the past? * Is Sam still phoning us now? * "I was watching TV at 8 o'clock." Past Continuous is used to talk about an action that was in progress at a past point in time. CCQ : * Did I start watching TV at 8 o'clock? * Was I still watching TV at 8 o'clock? * So, was this action in progress at 8 o'clock? "We were having dinner when the phone rang. The phone rang while we were having dinner." Actions which were in progress when something else happened. * Did we start having dinner before the phone rang? * Did we finish having dinner after the phone rang? "He loved me and then he forgot me." We can not use Past Continuous with stative verbs. "People travelled by camels in the past." We can not use Past Cont. with repeated actions of the past. CCQ: * Can we say "I was needing you."? * Which one would be right? : - I sucked my thumb when I was a baby. - I was sucking my thumb when I was a baby.
