We use the simple past to talk about things we did in the past.
With most verbs, the past tense is formed by adding –ed at the end of the verb (Verb + ed).

- I liked the movie!
- I worked late last night.
- I called you yesterday.

But there are a lot of irregular past tense forms in English. Here are the most common irregular verbs, with their past tense forms:

• Be = Was/Were
• Do = Did
• Have = Had
• Go = Went
• Come = Came
• Give = Gave
• Get = Got
• Begin = Began
• Know = Knew
• Keep = Kept
• Make = Made
• Meet = Met
• Take = Took
• Tell = Told
• Think = Thought
• Write = Wrote

Past simple questions

We use did to make questions with the past simple: (Did + subject + verb)

- Did you live in London?
- Did you meet?
- When did you meet?

Past simple negatives

We use didn't (did not) to make negatives with the past simple.

- They didn't go to Paris.
- We didn't get home until very late last night.
- I didn't see you last week.
