The past continuous tense is was/ were + ing form of the verb.

I/ he/ she/ it/ singular – was

you/ we/ they/ plural – were

We use the past continuous tense to talk about an action that continued at some point of time in the past.

We also use the past continuous combined with the simple past to show an action in progress when another action took place.
