Well, I read lots of English related books and most of it were academic books. But, I must admit that I am still struggling to improve my grammer. Wink

OK friends let us be serious in this section. we must appreciate what has given to us here by Mr Admin.

OK now tell me, what is the difference between past continuos tense and past perfect continuos tense.

For me they're look alike each other thus it's hardly to distinguish them.

Share Ur Knowlegdes here for all benefit.

Thank you.

Past Continuous Tense ("I was doing")


There are three main uses of this tense:
1. To talk about what was happening at a particular time in the past and to give descriptions and background information.
2. To talk about temporary situations in the past.
3. To make polite requests.
1. Talking about what was happening at a particular time in the past.
"This time yesterday, I was reading a book."
We often use the Past Continuous tense with the Past Simple tense. The Past Continuous gives the background to an event in the Past Simple:
"When he got home, the children were playing in the garden." (The children started playing in the garden before he got home.)
"I was eating dinner when there was a knock on the door." (The knock on the door came in the middle of my meal.)
We can use the Past Continuous to give descriptions.
"The girl was wearing a yellow dress. She was eating ice-cream and was watching television."
2. Talking about temporary situations in the past.
"When I was living in London, I often went to the theatre." (Living in London was temporary - perhaps I only lived there for a short while.)
Compare with: "When I was a child I lived in the
countryside." Living in the countryside was a longer event - I was a
child for more than a couple of years. For more permanent situations,
we use the Past Simple tense.
3. Making polite requests.
If we want to make polite requests, we can use the Past Continuous tense. This is because we put a distance between ourselves and the person we are asking.
"I was wondering if you had time to see me."
"I was hoping we could discuss a pay raise."

Yes, thats the correct answer. If somebody greets us with that sentence, make sure we respond correctly using the same santence like that one used by the first speaker. study

Example:

John: How do you do bonging?

bonging: How do you do John?

See that?

what is that for aramaiti? why the second speaker must reiterate the words similiar to first person?
