For regular verbs, we add -ed. For irregular verbs, there is a special past tense form.
regular verbs: play – played, watch – watched, want – wanted
irregular verbs: eat – ate, write – wrote, go – went
When we use the negative, we don’t change the main verb. We use ‘didn’t’ instead.
I didn’t watch TV.
