1. Put the story in the correct order.

2. Did you order the story correctly?

It was just after midnight on November 8th last year.

She was wearing a light colored raincoat and a red scarf.

…on his face and he shivered. Everything felt strange.

Suddenly, a young girl stepped out in front of him.

Since then several people have seen her ghost here.”

Frank Sharpe was driving home from work.

While he was looking under the car, he felt a cold wind…

He was still looking under the car when a police car pulled up.

“A girl was killed in a car crash on this road in November 1965.

The road was clear and he was driving carefully.

The police officers weren’t surprised when Frank told them his story.

…to his surprise, there was nothing there.

He got out and looked under the car but…

Frank tried to stop but it was too late.

The past progressive is used to talk about an action in progress in the past

“Yesterday lunch time I was eating lunch.”

The action is often interrupted by a shorter action (past simple) or a time expression

“Yesterday lunch time I was eating lunch and suddenly my telephone rang.”

“Yesterday evening I was watching TV when somebody knocked at the door.”

“While I was studying in America, I met so many great people.”

“My mother found my cigarettes, while she was cleaning my bedroom.”

“Last nightat 6pm I was eating dinner.”

“In 2006 I was living and working in Thailand.”

  • - i.e. dinner was in progress at around 6PM

  • “I ate dinner at 6pm last night.”

  • i.e. a shorter, completed action in the past
