Past simple (I did) - Простое прошедшее

Урок 5

Изучите этот пример:

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was an Austrian musician and composer. He lived from 1756 to 1791. He started composing at the age of five and wrote more than 600 pieces of music. He was only 35 years old when he died.

Lived/started/wrote/was/died - это всё - past simple.


Очень часто глагол в past simple имеет окончание -edправильных глаголов):

  • We invited them to our party, but they decided not to come.
  • The police stopped me on my way home last night.

write → wrote Mozart wrote more than 600 pieces of music.
see → saw We saw Rose in town a few days ago.
go → went I went to the cinema three times last week.
shut → shut It was cold, so I shut the window.
