Miss Takoua Becha 1 Miss Takoua Becha Academic year : 2010/2011 Reminder (2) : Past Simple vs. Present Perfect The simple past tense is used to tell about past events, actions, or situations. It is often used to indicate that a past action or situation does not exist in the present time. It is called definite past as it is used to tell specifically when something happened. The present perfect is used to talk about actions and states which start (or have their roots) in the past but which have a link with the present. The simple past: Form: Affirmative Negative Interrogative Regular verbs Subj + Verb + ed e.g. She received a message. S+ did not (didn’t) + inf e.g. He didn’t receive my letters. Did+ S + inf ? e.g. Did you wash your car? Irregular verbs Subj + Verb + n e.g. I slept early yesterday. S+ did not (didn’t) + inf e.g. She didn’t find a job. Did+ S + inf ? e.g. Did you meet him today?
