Past perfect (I had done) Прошедшее совершенное

Урок 15

Изучите следующую ситуацию:

Sarah went to a party last week. Paul went to the party too, but they didn’t see each other. Paul left the party at 10.30 and Sarah arrived at 11 o’clock. Пол покинул вечеринку в 10:30, а Сара прибыла в 11 часов. Итак:

When Sarah arrived at the party, Paul wasn’t there.
Когда Сара прибыла на вечеринку, Пола там не было.

He had gone home. Он ушел домой.

Had gone это the past perfect (simple):

had (= I’d etc.)
(= he’d etc.)

The past perfect simple это had + past participle - причастие прошедшего времени (gone/seen/finished etc).

Иногда мы говорим о событиях, случившихся в прошлом:

Это начальная точка отсчета нашей истории. Затем, если мы хотим поговорить о событиях, случившихся до этого времени, мы используем past perfect (had ...):

Еще немного примеров:


Сравните the present perfect (have seen etc.) и the past perfect (had seen etc.):

  • Who is that woman? I’ve never seen her before.
    Кто эта женщина? Я никогда ее не видела.
  • We aren’t hungry. We’ve just had lunch.
    Мы не голодные. Мы только что пообедали.
  • The house is dirty. They haven’t cleaned it for weeks.
    Дом грязный. Они не убирали его неделями.
  • I didn’t know who she was. I’d never seen her before. (= до этого времени)
    Я не знал, кто она была. Я никогда ее до этого не видел.
  • We weren’t hungry. We’d just had lunch.
    Мы не были голодны. Мы только что пообедали.
  • The house was dirty. They hadn’t cleaned it for weeks.
    Дом был грязным. Они не убирали его неделями.

Сравните the past simple (left, was etc.) и the past perfect (had left, had been etc.):

  • A: Was Tom there when you arrived?
    B: Yes, but he left soon afterwards.
    A: Том был там, когда ты приехал?
    В: Да, но он уехал вскоре после этого.
  • Kate wasn’t at home when I phoned. She was at her mother’s house.
    Катя не была дома, когда я звонил. Она была дома у мамы.
  • A: Was Tom there when you arrived?
    B: No, he had already left.
    А: Том был там, когда ты приехал?
    В: Нет, он уже уехал.
  • Kate had just got home when I phoned. She had been at her mother’s house.
    Катя уже уехала домой, когда я звонил. Она была дома у мамы.
