Past Simple – Part 2

Use the past simple to talk about finished actions in the past.

For regular verbs, the past simple negative is didn’t + infinitive:

I

You

He

She

It

We

They

didn’t(did not) work

 
Be careful to use the infinitive of the verb, not -ed:

  • We didn’t worked yesterday.
  • We didn’t work yesterday.

The past simple negative is the same for both regular and irregular verbs!

  • I didn’t go to school last week because I was sick.
  • Mary didn’t see John at the party.
  • They didn’t buy any milk at the supermarket.

It’s very easy!  🙂
