    Simple Past tense





    When we are doing something now (=right now !),

    we use the correct form of the verb to be (I am, you are...) and add -ing to the action verb.

    When we are talking about something done in the past

    (yesterday, last week...), we usually add -ed to the regular verb.


    Quand on est en train de faire quelque chose, on doit employer la forme appropriée du verbe

    to be (I am, you are...) et ajouter -ing au verbe.

    Quand on parle de quelque chose qui a déjà eu lieu (hier, la semaine passée) ,

     on ajoute généralement -ed au verbe régulier.



     Write the following expressions in the preterite.

    Écris les verbes suivants au prétérit.
