LEVEL: Beginner

In today's article, We are change our habits a little bit;
We are going to study English grammar !!
For some of you who have read my article about English grammar, They should be chocked right now!

Well, I've seen that many English students do want to study grammar, I don't why but I've said that English Grammar is not so terrible, but it is only useful for a specific kind of English students.

So, read my articles about grammar if you ONLY believe that English grammar is done for you.
If you don't know whether English grammar is good for you or not, you can read my article English Grammar .

If you're reading right now, it means that you found English grammar good for you, ok?

So, let's start with the past tense:

We use the past tense to describe or talk about something that happened in the past, not only this but also finished in the past.
For example, if you started traveling one hour ago, and you're still traveling right now, it's NOT past tense.
But if you started traveling one hour ago, and it's finished: This is past tense.

Now you know when to use the past tense, so I don't want to see you using the past tense instead of the present or...ok?

Well, how can you get the past tense?
It's simple, but before you should know that there are two kinds of verbs: regular verbs and irregular verbs.
How can you a verb is regular or irregular? well, this is the biggest problem, you should know it before, you should have found the verb before, you should have a list of irregular verbs in your head!! (is it difficult?)

For many English students, they say: "I can't use the past tense, I can't know the irregular verbs, there are a lot of verbs, I can't memorize all English verbs!!"
Yes of course, no one can memorize all the English verbs even native speakers!! but you should know at least the verbs that you use everyday, verbs that you use in your field...

Once you know if a verb is regular or irregular, the next step is this:
Regular verb --> ad "ed" at the end of the verb, for example: to travel--> he traveled, (do the same with all the pronouns)

Irregular verb--> no way!! you should memorize them.

It's finished now,  I hope that you will use the past tense correctly next time!
