The past simple tense of the most english verbs (regular verbs) is formed by addinged"/"-
d" to their base form. (If the verb ends in "-e", we add "-d" to form the past simple.)
There are also some verbs called irregular verbs that have special past tense forms.
To understand thoroughly how to use the simple past tense of verbs, study the following
discussion. Simple past tenses of verbs are also used to express specific situations
USE # 1 Completed A c t i o n in the Past
Use the Simple Past to express the idea that an action started and finished at a specific time
in the past. Sometimes, the speaker may not actually mention the specific time, but they do have
one specific time in mind.
 I watched a movie yesterday.
 I didn't see the play last Monday.
 Last year, I travelled to Japan.
 We arrived at 9:00 o'clock.
 This morning I went to the supermarket.
 Alec bought his little sister a book by Carly Philips.

USE # 2 A Series of Completed Actions

We use the Simple Past to list a series of completed actions in the past. These
actions happen 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and so on.
 I finished work, walked to the beach, and found a nice place to swim
 The Gazette Band arrived from the airport at 8:00, checked into the hotel at 9:00, and
met their fans at 10:00.
USE # 3 Duration in Past

The Simple Past can be used with a duration which starts and stops in the past. A
duration is a longer action often indicated by expressions such as: for two years, for five minutes,
all day, all year, etc.

 I lived in Brazil for two years.
 Shauna studied Japanese for five years.
 They sat at the beach all day.
 They did not stay at the party the entire time.
 We talked on the phone for thirty minutes.
 The Rose princess slept for fifty years.
USE # 4 Habits in the Past
The Simple Past can also be used to describe a habit which stopped in the past. It can
have the same meaning as "used to." To make it clear that we are talking about a habit, we often
add expressions such as: always, often, usually, never, when I was a child, when I was
younger, etc.
 I studied Niponggo when I was a child.
 He played the violin.
 Did you play a musical instrument when you were a kid?
 She worked at the movie theater after school.
 They never went to school, they always skipped class.
 Shana owned a car when she was in junior high school.
USE 5 Past Facts or Generalizations
The Simple Past can also be used to describe past facts or generalizations which are no longer
true. As in USE # 4 above, this use of the Simple Past is quite similar to the expression "used to."
 She was shy as a child, but now she is very outgoing.
 He didn't like tomatoes before.
 Did you live in Texas when you were a kid?
 People paid much more to make cell phone calls in the past.
