Debby

An International Baccalaureate, Cambridge IGCSE, IELTS Trainer and General English Teacher

Hello, my name is Debby and I’m currently an International Baccalaureate, Cambridge IGCSE, IELTS trainer and general English teacher in Batam. I have been teaching English for 5 years as I started teaching since I graduated from James Cook University, Singapore. English is actually fun and easy subject to learn as I’m going to deliver some strategies, so you can learn English easier and faster.

I understand some of you might find difficulty in learning this language since it is not out mother language. But if you understand the tricks, practice what we have learned during the lesson as you give your best effort, English is not that hard. Many students of mine even got 7 and above for their IELTS test, and achieved 8 for their speaking test. Two of my IB students; IB is international curriculum applied by many countries, got 7 and 6 (IB’s highest score is 7)for their last semester test.

In my spare time, sometimes, several schools invite me to be a judge for debate’s competition. Trust me, we can make the lesson becoming easy and fun. I’m going to guide you step by step and help you to conquer all the difficulties you encounter. I’ll see you in my class

Past Continuous Tense

Past Continuous Structure

Subject + Was/Were + Verb +ING

Contoh dari Past Continuous:

  • I was sleeping when you called me.
  • She was playing in the park
  • While we were talking, the pizza arrived.

Penggunaan Past Continuous Tenses:

  1. dipakai untuk menjelaskan ada sebuah kejadian yang sedang berlangsung dimasa lalu yang telah diinterupsi atau disela. Interupsi adalah berupa peristiwa yang waktunya lebih pendek.

Jadi diinget ya, biasanya kita pakai past continuous tenses ini buat jelasin 2 kejadian yang terjadi di masa lalu, dimana untuk kejadian yang sedang berlangsung kita pakai past continuous; was/were +V+ING, dan untuk kejadian yang menginterupsi  kita pakaikan simple past; S+V2.

Contohnya:

She was playing in the park when it started to rain.

 

 

 

 

I was playing game when John called

 

 

 

 

The car crashed when we were walking across the street.

è  pendengar bisa mengerti bahwa ‘she was playing’ adalah kejadian yang sedang berlangsung pada saat itu, dan ‘it started to rain’ adalah peristiwa yang menyela atau menginterupsi kejadian yg sedang berlangsung.

 

è Menjelaskan bahwa ‘I was playing game’ adalah kejadian yang sedang terjadi pada waktu itu (lampau), dan ‘john called’ adalah kejadian yang menganggu/menginterupsi.

 

è ‘We were walking across the street’ adalah kejadian yang tengah berlangsung di waktu itu (lampau), dan ‘the car crashed’ adalah peristiwa yang menginterupsi.

 

 

  1. Parallel Actions
  • Past continuous juga dipakai untuk menunjukkan dua kejadian yang berlangsung  dimasa lalu dengan waktu yang sama.

Contohnya:
While she was sleeping jack was doing his homework.

  • Dari contoh diatas pendengar dapat memahami bahwa dua kejadian yang disebutkan terjadi pada waktu yang bersamaan.
  • Di Indonesia kita biasa bilangnya “ ketika dia perempuan sedang tidur, Jack sedang mengerjakan prnya”

 Penggunaan While and When
Dalam penggunaan past continues, while and when paling sering digunakan, dimana perbedannya adalah:

  1. While
  • Digunakan jika kedua peristiwa terjadi dalam waktu yang bersamaan/ parallel actions.
  1. When
  • Digunakan ketika adanya peristiwa yang menginterupsi.
