Nog een keer in het kort: Past Simple in bevestigende ("gewone") zinnen
Past simple
Om aan te geven dat iets in het verleden is gebeurd.
Met -ed OF een onregelmatige vorm.
Yesterday, last week, last month, two days ago, four days ago, months ago, etc.
He walked her home last night.
I talked to him on the phone yesterday.
She tried to close her book but a fly got caught in between the pages.

Slide 3 - Slide

Past Simple
Bij de verleden tijd verandert het werkwoord.
Er komt -ed bij, bijvoorbeeld: walkwalked.
Er zijn spellingsuitzonderingen bij sommige regelmatige werkwoorden
Sommige werkwoorden zijn onregelmatig, dan krijgen ze geen -ed, maar dan hebben ze hun eigen vorm.

 bevestigende zinnen
Past simple

The teacher talked all day.
The woman screamed very loudly.

Slide 5 - Slide

Read the comic and find the verbs (ww) in the past tense. How many did you find? Fill in your answer on the next slide.

Slide 6 - Slide

How many past tenses did you find?

Slide 7 - Open question

ontkennende (negative) zinnen
Bij een ontkenning moet je ‘not’ gebruiken. Plak deze aan het hulpwerkwoord ("did") in de zin.
Denk eraan dat het hulpwerkwoord in de verleden tijd gezet moet worden!
Do not  = don’t -> tegenwoordige tijd
Did not = didn’t -> verleden tijd
Na didn't volgt altijd het hele werkwoord (dus zonder -ed)!

 ontkennende zinnen

I didn't like dogs.
The teacher didn't talk all day.
