Past Simple i Past Continuous

Zaczynamy czasy przeszłe. Dziś Past Simple i Past Continuous.

Na początek małe co nieco ;)...

Once upon a time, a very long time ago now, about last
Friday, Winnie-the-Pooh lived in a forest all by himself under the name of Sanders. (1)
One day when he was out walking, he came to an open place (2) in the middle of the forest, and in the middle of this place was a large oak-tree, and, from the top of the tree, there came a loud buzzing-noise. (3)
Winnie-the-Pooh sat down at the foot of the tree, put his head between his paws, and began to think. (4)
First of all he said to himself (5):  That buzzing-noise means something.  You don’t get a buzzing-noise like that, just buzzing and buzzing, without its meaning something. If there’s a buzzing-noise, somebody’s making a buzzing-noise, and the only reason for making a buzzing-noise that I know of is because you’re a bee. 
Then he thought another long time (6), and said:  ‘And the only reason for being a bee that I know of is making honey.’ 
And then he got up, and said (7): ‘And the only reason for making honey is so as I can eat it.’ So he began (8) to climb the tree.
He climbed and he climbed and he climbed (9), and as he climbed he sang a little song to himself. He was getting (10) rather tired by this time, so that is why he sang a Complaining Song.  He was nearly there now, and if he just stood on that branch… 

A.A. Milne Winnie the Pooh, chapter 1

Ponumerowane zdania w tekście służą jako przykłady w tabelce poniżej tam gdzie jest odniesienie do Winnie-the-Pooh.

Past Simple
Past Continuous
Czas przeszły prosty (dokonany)
Czas przeszły ciągły (niedokonany)

Używamy czasownika z końcówką –ED jesli czasownik jest regularny i drugiej formy czasownika w przypadku czasowników nieregularnych:

I/you/he/she/it/we/they  worked

I/you/he/she/it/we/they  swam

Używamy przeszłej formy czasownika BE, czyli WAS lub WERE oraz czasownika z końcówką –ING:

I/he/she/it was working

You/we/they were working

Używamy DIDN’T i bezokolicznika:

I/you/he/she/it/we/they  didn’t work

I/you/he/she/it/we/they  didn’t swim

WASN’T / WEREN’T + czasownik +ING

I/he/she/it wasn’t working
You/we/they weren’t working



Kiedy używamy

      1.    Do mówienia o przeszłych dokonanych wydarzeniach kiedy wspominamy lub wiadomo z kontekstu kiedy miały miejsce:

I went out yesterday.
Two days ago Megan bought a new house.
We met with the Browns last week.

Winnie-the-Pooh (3), (5), (8)

      2.    Do mówienia o czymś co rozpoczęło się i zakończyło w przeszłości:

I lived in London for 3 years.
Mark worked for some time as a lawyer and then resigned.
Winnie-the-Pooh (1), (6)

      3.    Do mówienia o serii wydarzeń w przeszłości, kiedy wymieniamy je w chronologicznej kolejności:

Winnie-the-Pooh (4), (7), (9)

      4.    Do mówienia o przeszłych rutynach, nawykach oraz preferencjach:

      1.    Do mówienia o czynnościach które miały miejsce w przeszłości i wykonywane były przez jakiś czas:

Winnie-the-Pooh (10)

      3.    Do mówienia o czynnościach które odbywały się w tym samym czasie w przeszłości:

Past Simple 
i Past Continuous razem 
w zdaniu

Bardzo często oba te czasy występują w zdaniu razem. Past Simple opisuje wtedy ‘krótkie’, dokonane wydarzenie, któro miało miejsce w trakcie jakiejś ‘długiej’ niedokonanej czynności wyrażonej za pomocą Past Continuous:

When I went to the room, Mark was reading a newspaper and the rest of the family were eating dinner and talking.

Betty called to tell me she would be late while I was going out.

When I was waiting for the bus, I saw my ex-girlfriend with her new boyfriend.

Winnie-the-Pooh (2)

  3. 5-1 if you’re a female user and 0.7-1.2 if you’re a male user Despite the complications and cost attached with getting your hands on (yikes!) synthetic urine, the product almost always delivers when aimed (pun intended) in the right direction with the help of the manufacturer’s instructions. That being said, make sure to thoroughly read up on your brand of choice when making the decision. You can do this in the ways showcased below, but make sure it stays in the 90-98-degree range. Once you’ve done this, you can shake it and use it!  If we haven’t stressed it enough, then let it be said once more – the temperature is crucial to fake urine. Visit:
