All these sentences basically mean the same thing: Barney started eating dinner first, and this action was happening over time when the cat jumped in the soup. 54 Extra Stuff about Past Progressive Part 3: Extra Stuff about Past Progressive (You May Not Need to Know This) 1. I want to know more than the simple rule; what’s the difference between past progressive and simple past? Let’s start by reviewing what we already know about these two tenses. First, simple past can be used for several different types of actions: • actions that happened quickly, • actions that happened repeatedly, or • actions that happened over time.

Example: Every day when Alicia gets home, her roommate is in the kitchen. ) or *it can mean that the action happened shortly after the other action (like most verbs). Example: Every day when Alicia gets home, her roommate is really happy to see her. ” As far as I can tell, the only way to know is context. You just have to look at the situation and guess what the speaker means. 42 Extra Stuff about Present Progressive 4. Present progressive (and other progressive tenses) can be used for temporary habits Present progressive can show a temporary habit in the present When you first started to study verb tenses, you probably learned that we use simple present for present habits and present progressive for actions that are happening right now (actions still in progress).

Both the simple past and the past progressive can be used to show actions that happened over time in the past. Because of this, there are many times when both tenses are okay. Examples: While John studied for his history test, Ludwig watched TV. While John was studying for his history test, Ludwig was watching TV. ) Miguel played soccer all yesterday afternoon. Miguel was playing soccer all yesterday afternoon. ) However, there are some times when only one tense is okay. Examples: Ward drove was driving to work when his car ran out of gas.
