Past Simple

Past Simple

The Past Simple is used to talk about an action that started and finished at a specific time in the past.


Many past tense verbs are made by adding ~ed to the verb.


For irregular past tense verbs, the entire word changes (See the List of Verbs in the Downloads section for examples). 



For example:


A: What did you eat for breakfast this morning?


B: I had some toast and juice. What about you?


A: Oh, I was busy, so I didn't eat anything.
