Verbos modales

Verbos modales:

Los verbos modales, son verbos auxiliares que no pueden funcionar como un verbo principal, a diferencia de los verbos auxiliares "be", "do" y "have" que sí pueden funcionar como un verbo principal.
Los verbos modales expresan modalidad. Pueden expresar habilidad, posibilidad, necesidad u otra condición. Los verbos modales no funcionan sin otro verbo. Este otro verbo siempre va después del verbo modal y tiene que estar en infinitivo (sin "to"). No se conjugan los verbos modales, y no tienen tiempo.
Los verbos modales son:
- Can.
- Could.
- May.
- Might.
- Will.
- Shall.
- Should.
- Ought to.
- Must/have to
- Would.

Past continuous

Past continuous: 
El pasado continuo se utiliza para acciones que ocurrieron en un momento específico en el pasado. Como el presente continuo, se forma con el verbo TO BE y el verbo correspondiente en gerundio (ing).

I was eating.
you were eating.
he was eating.
she was eating.
it was eating.
we were eating.
you were eating.
they were eating.

El pasado continuo lo utilizamos para una acción larga que en pasado fue interrumpida. La acción que se interrumpe está en pasado continuo y la acción que provoca la interrupción está en pasado simple.
"When" y "while" señalan el uso del pasado simple y continuo. Generalmente, usamos el pasado simple directamente después de "when" y el pasado continuo después de "while".
- Jose called while I was watching the news.
- He was walking to work when he fell.
- Was it rainning when you left?
También usamos el pasado continuo para acciones que estaban ocurriendo al mismo tiempo en el pasado.
- My son was reading while I was cooking.

Tringlish presents: The Box
2nd year students  of semipresencial English at the CEPER Pintor Zuloaga (Classroom Arbolí), on  the 6th of April went to  the Assembly Hall of the School of Languages * EOI, with other students of the School and our 1st year, online teacher Mayte, to enjoy this funny and interesting live show.
“The Box” is an interactive comedy about a woman, a box and thousands of possibilities born from it, a play to learn English, where an expressive actress named Tricia Audette, interacts with people in a kind of storytelling for adults.
There was a screen with a presentation that made the show very visual and easy to follow. On the screen appeared English sentences:
“It’s in English.
It works for any level.
I come to you”

“What is a box? a container with four sides
usually the shape of a square.
An area enclosed within straight lines”.
She distributed cards of characters between the students to encourage them to participate and be part of the show. Tricia told us that we didn’t have to have “verguenza” (she said it in Spanish for everyone to understand) because we must strive for progress, not perfection. “Feel free to make mistakes. It's not about perfection”.
It was funny (Tricia promised to look like the biggest idiot!) and interesting, we practiced English and learned listening positive sentences:
“Live a dream”
“Remember to be happy”

It is a show created not only to practice English, but also to make people think outside the box. Tricia is a teacher and often finds that students do not always know  want to do with their lives. Tricia said: “Imagine a school where every student and teacher just went for their dreams with no inhibitions. That's the objective of The Box, a live interactive comedy show. Not saying I can open everyone's mind, just saying it's worth a try”. Take risks. Dream big. Believe in yourself.
At the end of the show, in the box you can read in red capital letters: “Be you”
