Teaching Past Continuous
 
Hi friends! I īm teaching a 9 years old boy who doesn īt know speak English very well. In fact, he doesn īt understand past continuous sentences. I īd like to have some EASY exercises, games or something like that to make his learning useful and fruitful because he īs also absentminded and it īs exasperating!! 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Ana.

Hi Ana,
I just put the age and the level of your students in the searchbox on top of the forum and entered "past continuous" as key words and it gave me a lot of hits:
maybe you īll find something useful....
