Past Simple (простое прошедшее время) – это время, которое говорит о законченных событиях, которые произошли в определенный момент в прошлом.

Мы также используем Past Simple, когда мы описываем несколько событий, которые произошли в прошлом одно за другим

Вместе с Past Simple часто используются указатели времени, такие как yesterday, twodaysago, lastweek, in 1999, etc.

  • В английском языке глаголы делятся на правильные и неправильные(regularandirregular). Правильные глаголы образовывают прошедшее время при помощи окончания ed. К ним относятся livelived, workworked, cookcooked и многие другие.

Неправильные глаголы не подчиняются никаким правилам и их формы приходится запоминать. Например, go-went, have-had, do-did.

e.g. She lived here when she was a child.

        I had to wear a uniform when I was at school.
