El Pasado Continuo, es un tiempo verbal que describe acciones que estaban siendo realizadas en un momento del pasado al que se hace referencia y que luego continuaron. El pasado continuo equivale ala forma española "estaba o estuve haciendo algo". Se hace con el pasado del verbo "to be" y con el gerundio del verbo conjugado. El pasado del verbo "to be" es "was" para la primera y tercera personadel singular y "were" para todas las demás. Como es el verbo "to be" el que se conjuga en el pasado continuo, las formas interrogativa y negativa se hacen siguiendo sus reglas.
