Past continuous questions; reflexive pronouns
Transcript of Past continuous questions; reflexive pronouns
Past continuous questions
To ask questions using the past continuous, we move the verb to be (WAS/WERE) in front of the subject:
You WERE DANCING at the moment.
WERE you DANCING at the moment?
She WAS READING a book in the summer.
WAS she READING a book in the summer?
Remember: To ask questions using the simple past, we use the auxiliary DID:
DID you PLAY soccer last night?
DID you DO your homework yesterday?
We use a reflexive pronoun when we want to refer back to the subject of a sentence. Reflexive pronouns end in -self (singular) or-selves (plural).
