PAST SIMPLE- REGULAR VERBS

Do you know what these people are talking about? The answer is: they are talking about the past. They are talking about what they did yesterday. But you know that there are two groups of verbs when we study the simple past: REGULAR and IRREGULAR verbs. This time we are going to talk about the REGULAR VERBS.

When we study the past simple of the regular verbs we have to study the SPELLING and the PRONUNCIATION. Before practising, you can study the rules you need about these two aspects if you click on the following link:

past simple-spelling and pronunciation rules.doc

You need to practise all this:

Practise with songs:

Yesterday by the Beatles (don’t worry about the irregular verbs, just enjoy the song)

PRONUNCIATION
You need to listen how the ending -ed is pronounced so here you are a web page to do so: pronunciation of -ed. This is quite difficult to do, but if you practise a lot it will be more easy. Here you are two pages where you can practise the pronunciation of the ending -ed.
1 Listen and choose how the past ending -ed is pronounced.

2 Listen and choose if the pronunciation is correct or wrong.

SAXON GENITIVE

This is one difficult aspect of the English grammar. Here you are the grammatical rules and explanation with examples, and links to some web pages where you can practise with some exercises.

Good luck!

To form the possession with the Saxon genitive we put ‘s (apostrophe s)to the noun (the person that has something) and then the object that he/she has.

For example,

John’s mother – la madre de John
The Queen’s daughter – la hija de la reina
John’s school – la escuala de John
It is John’s car – es el coche de John

To form the possession of plural nouns we put only (apostrophe) to the noun and then the object that they have.

For example,
The teachers’ school – la escuela de los profesores
It is my brothers’ toy – es el juguete de mis hermanos

Now it’s time for practise!!

  1. Hello!
    I have just found your post and it is very interesting. It cover mainly all the basics when you start learning English. I would like to suggest you a website I have just launched and it is very popular with teachers. http://www.linguasorb.com/es/ingles/verbos/verbos-irregulares
    It is a free resource for learning languages (Spanish, French and English) with the full conjugation of every verb, in negative, affirmative and contracted form . I hope you like it, and I am open to any suggestion for improving it 🙂
    Regards,

    Cristina
