INTERMEDIATE - GRAMMAR CHECK 3


WHICH TENSE?

Look at the writing below. Think carefully about the time. Is it past, present or future? If there are two actions usually we think of one as a continuing action (past continuous) and the one is a short action which may interrupt the longer action (simple past).

Write the missing words. Sometimes more than one answer is possible.


I (watch) TV when I (hear) the news. It (be) terrible. More than 5000 people (die) in the earthquake. Hundreds of people (be) homeless.
