Esta es la gramática del pasado continuo:

Uso práctico del pasado continuo


Uno de los usos más importantes del pasado continuo consiste en hablar acerca de una actividad en progreso que es interrumpida por otra acción (estructurada en pasado simple) que tuvo lugar al mismo tiempo.

En resumen; se va a usar:

Pasado continuo: Acción principal
Pasado Simple: Acción interruptora

Ejemplos:

1.- He was cleaning the closet when he found the money.
(Él estaba limpiando el armario cuando encontró el dinero)

2.- We were driving to work when we had the accident.
(Estábamos conduciendo al trabajo cuando tuvimos el accidente)

En estos ejemplos la actividad que estaba tomando lugar está colocada al principio de la oración. Es viable, de igual forma, colocar la acción principal en segundo lugar.

Ejemplos:

1.- He found the money while he was cleaning the closet.
(Él encontró el dinero mientras estaba limpiando el armario)

2.- We had the accident while we were driving to work.
(Tuvimos el accidente mientras estábamos conduciendo al trabajo)

Nota:
When = Cuando
While = Mientras


Ejemplos de reforzamiento:

1.- I was riding my bicycle when a car hit me.
(Estaba montando mi bicicleta cuando un carro me chocó)

2.- George hurt his back while he was exercising.
(Jorge se lastimo su espalda mientras estaba ejercitando)

3.- Julie cut her finger while she was making a Salad.
(Julie se cortó el dedo mientras ella estaba preparando una ensalada)

4.- Mike and Sophie were working late when they heard the the sound.
(Miguel y Sofia estaban trabajando tarde cuando escucharon el sonido)

5.- The employee was checking his e-mail when the computer froze.
(El empleado estaba revisando su correo cuando su computadora se congeló)

En conclusión:

El pasado continuo, como su nombre lo indica refiere a un tiempo en el cual hablamos acerca de una actividad que estaba siendo ejecutada en un tiempo especifico del pasado. Si se combina con una oración en pasado simple se puede describir una acción que interrumpe dicha actividad llevándose a cabo.
