Past Simple with regular verbs.
Based on Surprise 6 Unit 4 (Oxford Univ Press).
We turn a sentence into Past Simple adding -ed at the end of the verb in infinitive.
|I walk home
||I walked home|
For writing a negative sentence in past, we use the auxiliary in past tense.
|don't / doesn't
|You don't like it.
||You didn't like it
|She doesn't talk
||She didn't talk|
Notice that in negative sentences in past simple, when using didn't, we don't need to ad the ED at the end of the verb:
We didn't watched TV. -> We didn't watch TV.
For writing an interrogative sentence in past simple, we also use the auxiliary in past tense.
|Do / Does
|Do you like it?
||Did you like it?
|Does she use the computer?
||Did she use the computer?|
Notice that in interrogative sentences in past simple, when using Did, we don't need to ad the ED at the end of the verb:
Did you walked home? - > Did you walk home?
This rule aplies for the REGULAR verbs. Some other verbs (not many) are irregular and they turn into past in a different irregular way, without a clear rule to be followed.
