The positive form of Simple Past

The positive form of Simple Past Tense is used to describe actions or events that occurred in the past and were completed. It is formed by using the base form of the main verb in the past tense, which typically involves adding “-ed” to regular verbs. Here’s the structure:

Subject + past tense of verb

For example:

  • She danced at the party last night.
  • They finished their homework on time.
  • He ate breakfast this morning.
  • We met at the park yesterday.

Note that irregular verbs have their own unique past tense forms and do not follow the regular “-ed” pattern. For example:

  • He went to the store yesterday.
  • She saw a movie last night.
  • They had breakfast together this morning.

In these cases, you need to memorize the irregular past tense forms of these verbs.
