In this unit, I have learned that, very much like the present tenses, past tenses are sub-categorized into past simple, past continuous, past perfect and past perfect continuous. The most common usage will be found in the past simple and past continuous forms. In order to identify each one relies on the combination of the subject, auxiliary verb and the verb form being used. Past simple depends solely on making the base form of the verb past tense by adding "-ed" to the end of most verbs. For example - "I watched." Irregular verbs have their own set of rules. For example, the base verb, catch becomes caught in past simple terms. Past continuous is the combination of auxiliary verb, was or were and the "ing" form of a verb. Past continuous is used for interrupted past actions -- "While I was eating lunch, the phone rang." It can also be used to describe gradual development that occurred in the past without time expression. It may be used when expressing an action that began before the time of which we are speaking and may have occurred after that time. Past perfect is essentially describing the past in the past. For example - "When I arrived, everyone already ate." Past perfect continuous is used when speaking of longer actions in the past that have been going on continuously up to the past moment being talked about. The combination for past perfect continuous is "had been" plus the "ing" form of a verb. It is important to understand these usages in the English language especially in order to better understand sentence structure. Once the tenses, are grasped, fluency becomes stronger.
