LET'S START WITH SIMPLE PAST

Watch the following video and let´s start with simple past.





Past Simple "To Be"



To Be - Past


Positive


Negative


Question


I was
You were
He was
She was
It was
We were
You were
They were


I wasn't
You weren't
He wasn't
She wasn't
It wasn't
You weren't
We weren't
They weren't


Was I?
Were you?
Was he?
Was she?
Was it?
Were we?
Were you?
Were they?


Examples:

I was at my friend's house yesterday evening.
Bill Clinton was the President of the U.S. for eight years.
We were very happy to receive your letter last week.

You weren't at home last night.
Alice wasn't at work yesterday because of flu.
They weren't on holiday in August. It was in July.

Where were you at eight o'clock last night?
Was Winston Churchill the British Prime Minister for a long time?
How often were we in that restaurant last month?


Note. To make the negative, add not after the verb. To make the question, invert the verb and the subject.



 Past Simple Use

We use the past simple to describe an action which started and finished in the past. Whether the event was in the near past or distant past is not important in English. In many languages, there is this distinction!

JFK died in 1963.
The Egyptians invented paper.
I saw a great film last week.
I had muesli for breakfast this morning.

Remember to use the past simple to describe a series of finished events in the past. If you describe two actions that happen together, you may need to use the past continuous:

Yesterday, I got up at 6, had a shower, went down into the kitchen, sat down and had breakfast.

There are many time expressions which are often used in conjunction with the past simple.

Yesterday, last week/month/year, the day before yesterday
a long time ago, when I was young, six months/years/days ago
in 1996, before the war, in the 15th Century



Here there are some exercises.
