Past Simple vs Past Continuous Error Correction

This worksheet comprises the common mistakes my students do during the years of my teaching. They are typical mistakes that students do in Past Simple and Past Continuous tenses. 

What are the common mistakes in Past Simple and Past Continuous tenses?

The typical mistakes are usually made in the forms of two tenses. Students confuse the conjugation of these two tenses. Also, the use of simple past tense for completed actions is not implemented correctly in sentences. Students tend to use past continuous instead.
