  1. 1. SIMPLE PAST : How was your vacation? Unit 9 1.Affirmative Form
  2. 2. Affirmative Form  To form the past in English you add ED or D to the verb. Ex: play – played. love – loved. The verbs that make the past with D or ED are called “regular verbs”.

  4. 4. But not all the verbs are REGULAR!  Some of the verbs don’t follow the rule!  Ex: go – went  I go to the gym everyday.  I went to the gym last night.
  5. 5. Look at this list!  See - saw  Be - was / were  Sell - sold  Drink -drank  Take - took  And there are more in your catalog Web!!!
  6. 6. And now the Negative Form  To make the negative form in past simple you need the auxiliar DID plus NOT: didn’t, and the verb goes in the base form.  Example: I played soccer yesterday, I didn’t play basketball.
