GRAMMAR: THE SIMPLE PAST TENSE (pasado simple)---- IRREGULAR VERBS a) Affirmative form: The structure is the same that with the regular verbs, but you have to know the correct in the past for the irregular verbs (you have to study the past tense of all the irregular verbs that you can see in the “list of irregular verbs”).

Sujeto + Verbo (en pasado) + Predicado


Examples: 1. I went to the cinema on Saturday evening. (Yo fui al cine el sábado por la tarde) 2. He was at home yesterday afternoon. (Él estuvo en casa ayer por la tarde) 3. They read an interesting book last holidays.(Ellos leyeron un libro interesante las últimas vacaciones) b) Negative form: The structure is the same that with the regular verbs.

Sujeto + didn’t + verbo (en presente) + Predicado Examples: 1. I didn’t drink a glass of water. (Yo no bebí un vaso de agua) 2. She didn’t have chicken for lunch. (Ella no tomó pollo para almorzar) 3. We didn’t write a book last year. (Nosotros no escribimos un libro el año pasado) c) Interrogative forma: The structure is the same that with the regular verbs.

Did + Sujeto + Verbo (en presente) + Predicado

Examples: 1. Did you ride a bike in the park? (¿Montaste en bicicleta en el parque?) 2. Did you buy candies in the sweet shop? (¿Compraste caramelos en la tienda de dulces?) 3. Did he draw a picture at school? (¿Hizo un dibujo en la escuela?)
