⚠️ WARNING ⚠️ If you listen to this podcast it will be a RISK! Well… that’s not really true but that’s what we talk about! ? Dan the Man manages to constantly embarrass me ?♂️, we talk about KIDNAPPING children (and The Queen) ?, sexy STUDS ? and lots more! So just keep CALM and keep on ROCKin’! ???
In today’s show, when Dan was explaining the story about him entering a talent competition, he said:
“I had been practising my football skills for days”
As mentioned in the show, this is the Past Perfect Continuous. It is a real RnR tense and is obviously very similar to the Past Perfect – where we talk about 2 actions in the past and one comes before the other one (in this story, the 2 events are Dan at the competition and practising for days which obviously happened earlier).
Anyway, we use the Past Perfect Continuous here to stress the DURATION of the action. As he had been practising FOR DAYS, so it was a long action!
Use this term when you speak and your English will ROCK! ?
When you have listened to the podcast and read the above, then you’re ready for the quiz below! ?
