The past continuous tense is used to describe actions or events that were ongoing or in progress at a specific point in the past. It is formed with the past tense of "to be" (was/were) and the present participle of the main verb (-ing form). For example, "I was studying when the phone rang." This tense helps to provide context to a past event and can be used to express interrupted actions or background information in a story.
