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

Thanks in advance for your help!

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 �ll find something useful....
