Past Simple – Part 3

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

Past simple questions are Did + subject + infinitive?

Did I

you

he

she

it

we

they

go?

Past simple questions are the same for both regular and irregular verbs!

  • Did Mary buy a new shirt?
    No, she bought new pants. (or: No, she didn’t.)
  • Did Jacob sleep late today?
    Yes, he slept until 11:30 AM! (or: Yes, he did.)
  • Did you speak English at the conference?
    Yes, I spoke English with many people. (or: Yes, I did.)

Be careful to use the infinitive of the verb:

  • Did you enjoyed your vacation?
  • Did you enjoy your vacation?
  • Did they went to the party?
  • Did they go to the party?
