The past simple is the tense used to talk about situations that occurred in the past and have now concluded.
Many common verbs have irregular past forms.
Below you can see a list of the most common irregular verbs:
|VERB||PAST SIMPLE OF VERB
- I bought a cheap shirt yesterday.
- He drank a lot last night.
- They bought a lot of chocolates last week.
There is not a rule that explains how to obtain the past form of these verbs. The irregular verbs are used like the regular verbs in the past simple but each verb has a special form which you should learn by heart.
We use the past simple tense when we wish to talk about situations that occurred in the past and have now concluded. There are many verbs which are irregular in the past.
— “I wrote a letter to my favourite writer.” / “
I writed a letter to my favourite writer.“ = The verb write changes to wrote because it is an irregular verb.
