    Past perfect tense


    We form the past perfect tense with had and the past participle of the main verb.

     

     If we conjugate the verb 'to go' as an example in the past perfect tense we're going  to have :

     Subject + had + gone ( past participle of  'to go' )

     

                      I had gone                                 We had gone

                     You had gone                             You had gone

                     He had gone                               They had gone

                     She had gone

                     It had gone

     

    When do we use the past perfect tense ??   

    We use the past perfect tense to describe an action that took place in the past before another past action.

         

    Examples :

               

                        By the time we arrived , they had gone.

                        She said that she had seen that movie.
