PAST SIMPLE AND PAST PROGRESSIVE - INTERMEDIATE 1

Two teachers tell us about a scary situation when they were walking home late at night. This gives us the opportunity to see the way they talk about past situations and the way they combine the use of the past continuous (for longer, background situations) and the past simple (shorter actions that interrupt the action in the past continuous).

Self-study activity: Listen as often as necessary until you feel you've got the grasp of what really happened to them. Then retell the teachers' anecdotes in their own words. Make a point of using the past simple and past continuous all the time, and don't jump to the present.

Finally, can you think about a scary situation in your life? Retell the anecdote using the past continuous and past simple.
