Simple Past Tense

 
 

Simple Past Tense #2

 

English uses verbs in the simple past tense to refer to
actions, situations, or events that are finished and that
happened before now. There are three ways to form
simple past tense in English. One way is what happens
with the verb be: it uses the special forms was and were.
Another way is what happens with regular verbs.
(They are called regular because they all add the same
ending--ed--or some variation on it.)
