Description

When we talk about a single, completed event in the past, we add '-ed' to the end of a regular verb.There is no third person '-s':John works in an office everyday.Yesterday he worked from nine o'clock in the morning to five in the evening.NegativesTo make the negative form of the past simple, we put 'didn't' or 'did not' before the main verb. ('Did' is the past form of the auxiliary 'do' - this shows that the action is in the past).Last Sunday, he didn't go to work.Irregular verbsIrregular verbs all have different past forms.When he was a boy, John didn't want to work in an office.Question FormsTo make a question in the past simple, we add the 'did' auxiliary and put the subject after it.What did he want to do?
