Past Simple: regular verbs


We form Past Simple of regular verbs by adding -ed to the verb.

play → played, ask → asked, start → started, wash → washed

They waited for two hours.


Look at these other regular spelling rules:

Add -d to verbs ending in -e.
like → liked, share → shared

Change -y to -ied in verbs ending in consonant + -y.
study → studied, cry → cried

Double the last letter and then add -ed to most verbs ending in one vowel and one consonant.
travel → travelled, chat → chatted

We use did or didn’t and the base form for questions and negative forms.

When did you start that book?


Who, where, what, when, why, how

We use question words (who, where, what, when, why and how) when we ask for information.

Questions with question words usually have the same word order as yes/no questions.


Do you like it? Yes, I like it. Why do you like it?
Is he leaving? Yes, he’s leaving. When is he leaving?
Did it happen? Yes, it happened. How did it happen?
Will you go? Yes, I’ll go. Where will you go?
Did you do it? Yes, I did it. What did you do?


We often use who as the subject of a question, without do, does or did.

 Who likes pizza?
Who wrote this?


We can also use it inthe same pattern as a yes/no question.

Can you talk to someone? Yes, I can talk to someone. Who can you talk to?
