This unit is about Past tenses.
There are four past tenses in English. Use them to talk about things that started and ended in the past or things that started in the past and continue to the present.
? Simple Past for actions starting and ending in the past.
? Past Continuous for actions starting in the past and continuing to the present.
? Past Perfect for actions that started and ended in the past before another action that is also in the past.
? Past Perfect Continuous for actions that were going on in the past up until another action in the past happened.
With most verbs the past tense is formed by adding -ed: call >> called; like >> liked; want >> wanted; work >> worked
But there are a lot of irregular past tenses in English, such as: break-broke, drinak-drank, fall-fell
The past continuous describes actions or events in a time before now, which began in the past and is still going on at the time of speaking. In other words, it expresses an unfinished or incomplete action in the past. It is formed was/were + verb- ing.
The past perfect refers to a time earlier than before now. It is used to make it clear that one event happened before another in the past. It does not matter which event is mentioned first - the tense makes it clear which one happened first. It forms had+past participle.
The past perfect continuous tense (also known as the past perfect progressive tense) shows that an action that started in the past continued up until another time in the past. The past perfect continuous tense is constructed using had been + the verb’s present participle (root + -ing).
