Review Lesson 26

Hello! We have learned a lot in these last few lessons. Let us take a moment to review what we have learned.

First, we learned about the adverb “then”. The adverb "then" sometimes means: at a previous time or at a specific time. When it is used that way, we might say "We were young then." The adverb "then" is often used to mean next in order, in time. When it is used that way, we might say "We will have breakfast. Then we will go to work.” The adverb "then" is sometimes used to mean next in order, in location. When it is used with that meaning, we might say "Do you see the cars? The first car is Mrs. Smith's car; then my car; then Mr. Smith's car."Another meaning for the adverb "then" which we have seen in previous lessons means: as a consequence, or in that case. For example, we might say "If Jennifer and David had two cars, then Jennifer would not drive David to work."


Finally, we learned to use the past progressive tense, which is used for actions that were ongoing in a past time. We learned that the past progressive tense is formed with a past form of the verb "to be" and a form of the main verb that ends in "-ing". The past progressive tense is often used in one part of a sentence, while the simple past tense past is used in another part of the sentence.  The two parts are conjoined by the use of the word "when" or "while". This usage anchors the past progressive in time, and tells what was going on when a specific action occurred. An example of a sentence which uses the past progressive is "I was cooking dinner when the phone rang".This sentence means that the action of cooking dinner was ongoing, and that ongoing action was interrupted by the ring of the telephone. ometimes we use a specific time as the point of interruption. In this sentence, we see that "at 6:00" is a specific time which figuratively interrupts the action. "At 6:00, we were eating dinner." Sometimes one ongoing action in the past is parallel to another ongoing action in the past, such as in the sentence "While Jennifer was cooking, David was setting the table." The two ongoing actions in the past were going on side by side, at the same time.

Great! Now that you have reviewed each of these concepts, you have reinforced the knowledge you have learned thus far.
