*Bill´s day*

It was Saturday. The sun was shining and many people were going to the park. Bill was there. He was riding his bike when he met his math teacher, Mrs. Bells. She was running around the lake. There were some boys playing soccer. He also met his neighbor, Mr. Ford. He was doing some exercises. There were some kids eating popcorn and drinking soda. It was great!

O passado contínuo é usado para se referir a uma situação que estava em andamento em um determinado momento do passado. A construção do passado contínuo deve ser dada segundo a forma:Sujeito + verbo “to be” no passado (was/were) + verbo com “ing” + complemento.She was working yesterday night. (Ela estava trabalhando ontem à noite).
He was working at the college. (Ele estava trabalhando na universidade).
The dog was barking a lot yesterday night. (O cachorro estava latindo muito noite passada).
Para a forma negativa, basta acrescentar o “not” após o passado do verbo “to be”(was/were):They were not studying when I arrived home. (Eles não estavam estudando quando eu cheguei em casa).
I was not traveling last week. (Eu não estava viajando semana passada).
We were not playing cards during the class. (Nós não estávamos jogando baralho durante a aula).
Para elaborar uma frase interrogativa é necessário colocar o passado do verbo “to be” (was/were) no início da frase:Was Lisa copying Marianne’s exercises? (A Lisa estava copiando os exercícios da Marianne?)
Was Bob riding a horse with his friends on the farm yesterday? (O Bob estava andando a cavalo com seus amigos na fazenda ontem?)
Were you two dancing during the P.E. class yesterday? (Vocês dois estavam dançando durante a aula de Educação Física ontem?)
