Past simple – sentences
We can use past simple sentences to talk about things we did in the past.
I played football.
We had lots of fun!
She didn't watch a film.
How to use them
For regular verbs, the past simple ending is ed, for example:
play - played
like - liked
want - wanted
For irregular verbs, there is a special past simple form, for example:
go - went
eat - ate
write - wrote
have - had
For negatives, use didn't and the verb, but don't change the verb to the past form.
I didn't play hockey.
They didn't go to school.
