I/You/He/She/It/We/They ……. Worked I/You/He/She/It/We/They ……. Didn’t work Did I/You/He/She/It/We/They Work ? Past simple. We use past simple for states and actions which happened in the past. We often say when the action happened. I saw someone famous yesterday.. The action can be short or long, single or repeated. I dropped the glass and it broken on the floor. He took the train to work everyday.. We also use the past simple to talk about states in the past. When I was young, I loved playing with my toys.
I//He/She/It/ ……. Was Worked You/We/They ……. Were work was I/He/She/It Working ? Were you/we/they working ? Past continuous. We use past continuous for action in progress at time in the past. I living in London then.. Sometimes this includes a specific time or another(completed) past action. We were having breakfast at 8 o’clock. I heard the news on the radio while I was driving home.. The past continuous often describe the situation or background to a story. The sun was shining and I was walking a long the road. Suddenly, someone shouted to me I//He/She/It/ ……. Wasn’t Worked You/We/They ……. Weren’t work
. Sometime the past continuous action is interrupted. They were walking about me when I walked in the room, then they stopped.. We use the past continuous for actions we see as incomplete. I read a book about Italy on the plan. I was reading a book about Italy on the plan.. The past continuous has the same characteristics as other continuous forms. _ continuous forms describe activities in progress. He’s reading the newspaper. He was reading the newspaper. _ We use continuous forms to emphasis that situations are the temporary. She’s staying with us at the moment. I was sleeping on a friend’s sofa. _ We don’t use continuous forms with state verbs. I hated vegetables when I was young. Not I was hating vegetables when I was young.
I//He/She/It/ You/We/They ……. Used to work. I//He/She/It/ You/We/They ……. Would work. I//He/She/It/ You/We/They ……. Didn’t Use to work. I//He/She/It/ You/We/They ……. Wouldn’t work. Did I//He/She/It/ You/We/They ……. Use to work ? Would I//He/She/It/ You/We/They ……. work ?
. We use used to and would for habits in the past. I would go to the gym every day. My sister used to have really long hair.. There is no equivalent form of used to or would in the present. I usually go to my parents’ house on Sundays. Not, I use to go to my parents’ house on Sundays.. Would is common when we are telling a story or remembering an event. Those were the best years of my life. I would spend all day on the beach and go out every night..for states in the past, we only use used to, not would. I used to live in Dubai. Not, I would live in Dubai.. We can always use he past simple instead of used to or would. I went to the gym every day. My sister had really long hair.
. These phrases mean that an action or state was true in the past, but is not true now. I used to play volleyball every Friday, but I don’t any longer.
. We use still when we are want to emphasise that an action or state has not stopped or changed, but up to the present. I still remember how frightened I was.
