Vreme Past Continuous (ili Past Progressive) je prošlo vreme u engleskom jeziku. Za razliku od običnog prošlog vremena, ovo vreme se koristi za radnju koja je trajala u prošlosti.

Kako se gradi Past Continuous?

potvrdan oblik: Subjekat + TO BE (was / were) + infinitiv + -ing

We were sleeping.

upitan oblik: TO BE (was / were) + Subjekat + infinitiv + -ing

Were we sleeping?

odričan oblik: Subjekat + TO BE (was / were) + not + infinitiv + -ing

We were not sleeping.

Kada se koristi Past Continuous?

- za prošlu radnju koja je trajala u prošlosti

I had a good time while I was living in Paris.

When I woke up this morning, the sun was shining.

- za dve radnje koje su se istovremeno dešavale u prošlosti

He was reading newspapers while she was preparing breakfast.

- za prošlu radnju koja je trajala u prošlosti i bila prekinuta nekom drugom prošlom radnjom
(ta druga prošla radnja obično se izražava vremenom Past Simple)

They were watching TV when Sarah entered the room.

Priloške odredbe za vreme koje se najčešće javljaju u ovom vremenu su: while, when.
