Past simple of verb be: was / were
-We use was/were – > to talk about the past
-We often use was/were with past time expressions, e.g. yesterday, last night, in 1945 etc.
-We use was/were with born: I was born in Hungary
We use the past simple for finished actions in the past.
Spelling rules for regular verbs:
-Regular verbs in the past afirmative end in -ed, e.g. worked, lived, played.
-The past simple is the same for all persons ( I, you, she, etc)
-Use auxiliaries did/didn´t + infinitive for past simple interrogative and negative. Did is the past of do
-Use the irregular past form only in afirmative sentences: I saw a film last night
-Use the infinitive after did/did´t for past simple interrogative and negative. Idid´t go last night.
Remember word order in questions = ASI or QUASI
Can you…? Can / Can´t → Past of can = Could
-Can you introduce yourself? / Could you… ? -> for past interrogative
-Couldn´t -> for past negative
Would you like … ?
