  • Hi, everyone. I'm Esther.

  • In this first checkup, we'll take a look at

  • practice questions using the 'be' verb in the past simple tense.

  • Remember the 'be' verbs in the past simple tense are 'was' or 'were'.

  • Let's take a look at the first sentence.

  • 'He __ at work earlier.'

  • The subject here is 'we'. So do we use 'was' or 'were'?

  • The correct answer is 'was'. 'He was at work earlier.'

  • The next sentence says,

  • 'We _____ very happy yesterday.'

  • If the subject is 'we', remember the be verb is 'were'.

  • 'We were very happy yesterday.'

  • Next, 'My parents or they __ worried about me.'

  • If it's 'they', remember we have to say 'were'.

  • 'My parents were worried about me.'

  • If I want to use the negative, I can also say 'My parents weren't worried about me.'

  • And that's possible.

  • Now I want you to find the mistake in the next sentence.

  • 'We wasn't good students.'

  • We wasn't good students.

  • Can you figure out what's wrong?

  • The subject here is 'we', so we don't say 'was not'.

  • We need to say 'were not' or the contraction 'weren't'.

  • 'We weren't good students,' is the correct answer.

  • The next one says, 'Were she a teacher?'

  • Now, this is a question so the be verb comes at the beginning.

  • That's correct, but the subject here is 'she'.

  • Therefore, we need to start with 'was'.

  • 'Was she a teacher?'

  • And finally,

  • 'They wasn't at school.'

  • The subject is 'they', so the answer is

  • 'They weren't at school.'

  • You can use the contraction 'weren't' or 'were not'.

  • Let's move on to the next checkup.

  • Now, let's practice regular verbs in the past simple tense.

  • Take a look at the first sentence.

  • 'He ____ at home.'

  • The verb is 'study'.

  • Remember, when changing a regular verb into

  • the past tense, we add 'd' or 'ed' to the end of the verb.

  • However, there's a separate rule for words that end in 'y'.

  • Such as, 'study'.

  • We drop the 'y' and we add 'ied'.

  • So the correct answer is,

  • 'He studied at home.'

  • The next sentence says, 'We __ pencils.'

  • We want to use negative because it says 'not use'.

  • Remember for the negative, we always use 'did not', no matter what the subject.

  • You can also use the contraction 'didn't'.

  • Now, what do we do to the verb?

  • We keep it as 'is'. We do not change it.

  • 'We didn't' or 'We did not' use pencils.

  • The next sentence says, 'His friends or they walk to the gym.'

  • What's the past tense of 'walk'?

  • We simply have to add 'ed' because it's a regular verb.

  • 'His friends walked to the gym.'

  • Now, find a mistake in the next sentence.

  • 'She didn't likes math.'

  • 'didn't' is correct.

  • However, remember we keep the verb as 'is' in the base form.

  • So we don't say 'likes'. We say 'like'.

  • 'She didn't like math.'

  • The next sentence says, 'Did it rained this morning?'

  • Now this is a question.

  • In a question, it's right to start the sentence with 'Did'.

  • 'Did it rained?'

  • Do you notice the mistake?

  • Remember, we do not use the past tense form in the question.

  • We use the base form of the verb.

  • 'Did it rain this morning?'

  • And finally, 'They not play the piano.'

  • The verb is an action verb.

  • So we need a 'did' in front of 'not'.

  • 'They did not play the piano.'

  • Let's move on to the next checkup.

  • Now, I'll talk about irregular verbs in the past simple tense.

  • Take a look at the first sentence.

  • 'He __ to school.' And the verb is 'run'.

  • 'run' is an irregular verb, so the past tense form is 'ran'.

  • 'He ran to school.'

  • The next sentence says, 'We __ flowers.'

  • We want to use the negative because here it says 'not grow'.

  • Remember, no matter what the subject in the negative form,

  • we say 'did not'

  • or 'didn't'.

  • Then we keep the verb in its base form.

  • 'We did not grow' or 'We didn't grow flowers.'

  • The next sentence says, 'Where __ you teach last year?'

  • This is a question.

  • Again, all we need to put is 'did'.

  • 'Where did you teach last year?'

  • It doesn't matter what the subject is.

  • We always go with 'did'.

  • Next, try to find the mistake in the next sentence.

  • 'He didn't sold newspapers.'

  • Remember, in the negative, 'didn't' is correct for whatever subject there is.

  • However, we need to keep the verb in its base form.

  • So the correct answer is, 'He didn't sell newspapers.'

  • The next sentence says, 'Did she sing a song?'

  • You'll notice it's a similar problem here.

  • 'sang' is the irregular past tense form of 'sing'.

  • But in a question, if it starts with 'did',

  • we use the base form.

  • 'Did she sing a song?'

  • And finally, 'We taked it home.'

  • Does that sound right?

  • 'taked' is not correct.

  • The past tense of 'take' is 'took'.

  • 'We took it home.'

  • Great job, everyone.

  • Let's move on.

  • Wow, we learned a lot in this video.

  • Keep studying and reviewing the past simple tense.

  • It's an essential tense that will help you talk about the past.

  • Keep studying English and I'll see you in the next video.

  • Bye.

Hi, everyone. I'm Esther.
