“Returning to Study at Lexis after 11 years”

Vic and Chris have been a Lexis homestay family since 2004. We had a request from a student to stay with Vic and Chris from a student who stayed with them 11 years ago!  Junko wanted to reconnect with the Guise family because she had made memories all those years ago. The family have a book that they get all of their students to sign and found Junko’s message in the first book (of four) all those years ago.

Thank you Vic and Chris.

Ben’s Grammar Tip of the Week

Past Continuous

The past continuous is a great tense when talking about a story that happened in the past.

The form is was/were + verb ing


The main use of Past Continuous is:

  • to talk about 2 actions happening at the same time.


  • One action + one time.


Let us take a look!!!!!

I was eating dinner when my mum rang me.


*Did you see what we did?

We decided which action was the:

  •  LONG action

and which action was the

  • SHORT action that interrupted.

We use Past Continuous for the long action and Past Simple for the short action.


*How can you practice?

Easy – Try writing some stories about something that happened to you in the past.

Bring it to G.I.L and get it checked!
