  1. masih bingung penggunaan Simple past sama Simple Present. Sama2 masa lampau ????
    kalo misal kek gini gmn kak?
    He played badminton last week = He was playing badminton last week
    bukannya sama aja? atau gmn? ???? thanks before

    • Umumnya past continuous tense untuk membicarakan aksi yang sedang berlangsung (belum rampung) di sekitar waktu tertentu di masa lampau, sementara simple past tense menunjukkan bahwa aksinya di masa lampau telah rampung (completed action) Angga. Past continuous tense hanya menggunakan dynamic verb, tidak stative verb, beda sama simple past tense.

      coba lihat contoh dan penjelasannya di https://www.wordsmile.com/perbedaan-antara-simple-past-continuous-tense

    • maaf kak sebelumnya yaaaa …. perbedaan fungsi simple present tense dan past continous tense adalah jika s.p.t fungsinya dalah menyetakan rutinitas atau kebiasaan sehari hari, jika p.c.t fungsinya adalah kegiatan yang sedang berlangsung pada masa lampau ..
