Simple Past Tense

Fill in the Blanks Game

We use the simple past tense to express the idea that an action started and finished at a specific time in the past. Example:
- I saw a movie yesterday.

Also, we use the simple past to list a series of completed actions in the past. These actions happen 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th an so on. Example:
- I finished work, walked to the beach, and found a nice place to swim.

The simple past can be used with a duration which starts and stops in the past. A duration is a longer action often indicated by expressions such as: for two years, for five minutes, all day, etc. Example:
- I lived in Brazil for two years.

The simple past can also be used to describe a habit which stopped in the past. Example:
- I studied French when I was a child.

The simple past can also be used to describe past facts or generalizations witch are no longer true. Example:
- He didn't like tomatoes before.
