simple past tense by Dynamic IELTS with 100 simple past tense examples

Simple past tense we use for things that completely finished or happening in past

 Let’s start with an example

• I worked hard.

Sub + main verb(past form) + obj

Firstly, there are two types of verbs which we should learn first

1 regular verb

2 irregular verb

1 regular verb

The regular verb always ends with -ed/d in the past tense

For example,  work – worked

                         Live – lived

2 irregular verb

An irregular verb is variable so we need to learn it from bottom of our heart.  i.e.,

                      Base form          past form

                           Go                     went

                          Sing                    sang

                          Drive                  drove

Let’s learn the basic structure of simple past tense

Subject + main verb(past) + obj

i.e., I + worked + hard

 For question sentences,

Auxiliary verb (did) + sub + main verb(base) + obj

i.e.,  Did you like that gift?

For negative sentence,

Sub + did +not + main verb(base) + obj

i.e., They did not play cricket with us.

        Let’s see some examples

I loved to play cricket.

Did you like to play cricket?

Why did she not like cricket?

You worked very hard.

Did you know about that?

She knew everything about us.

Why did you not buy that car?

She did not buy that car.

But when you ask questions about who, the sentence structure will be

Who + main verb(past) + obj

i.e.,  Who lived in London?

         Who did that?

         Who worked as a doctor?

And when we us was/were as the main verb, we don’t need to follow past tense rules

Sub + auxiliary verb(was/were) + obj

For example,

I was there.

You were smart boy.

We were not happy.

Were you smart ?

Was I there ?

Where to use

2. something that happened again and again and true in past
