0:05 Hey, I'm Andy, and I teach English.
0:09 Today's lesson is a busy day in the past progressive.
0:15 Yesterday, I was walking the dog when my phone rang.
0:21 It was my boss. A teacher was feeling sick,
0:26 so she needed me to fill in.
0:31 As I was running to my car, it started to rain.
0:38 When I arrived at the school,
0:41 my boss was waiting outside.
0:45 She told me another teacher's car broke down.
0:51 I was working rest of the day.
0:55 So, why use the past progressive?
0:59 One reason is to show the order of events.
1:04 And how do you use the past progressive?
1:09 Write a subject, plus a form of "to be," plus a verb-ing.
1:19 For example: You were saying...
1:23 It was snowing,
1:25 They were laughing.
1:28 All right, your turn. Fill in the blanks. Click pause.
1:44 What were you doing yesterday?
1:48 Next time, we will learn about the present perfect.
1:53 This is American English, and thanks for watching.
