Aulas Online - Avançado - Past Simple

Study this example:


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 are all past simple.

Very often the past simple ends in -ed (regular verbs):
• I work in a travel agency now. Before that I worked in a shop.
• We invited them to our party but they decided not to come.
• The police stopped me on my way home last night.
• She passed her examination because she studied very hard.

But many verbs are irregular. The past simple does not end in -ed. For example:
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.



Exercise

Write / buy / catch / cost / drink / fall / hurt / sell / spend / teach / throw / win

1) Mozart … more than 600 pieces of music;
