Simple Past


The Simple Past is used to talk about actions or situations in the past. It is also called Past Simple.

Have a look at the following examples:

1) action finished in the past (single or repeated)

I visited Berlin last week.
Andrew watched TV yesterday.

2) series of completed actions in the past

First I got up, then I had breakfast.

3) together with the Past Progressive/Continuous – The Simple Past interrupted an action which was in progress in the past.

They were playing cards when the telephone rang.
1st action: Past Progressive were playing
2nd action: Simple Past rang

Information taken from:


Affirmative Negative Interrogative
I drew my life I did not/didn’t draw my life Did I draw my life?
She said her idea She did not/didn’t say her idea Did she say her idea?
