Unit six was all about past tense. The unit described past simple, past continuous, past perfect, and past perfect continuous. Past simple is broken into regular verbs and irregular verbs. for regular verbs ed, d, and did/didn?t are used for form past simple. Irregular verbs do not follow a rule so they need to be memorized. Past simple is used when an action/situation is at a definite time in the past. Students often make errors with irregular verbs and the use of did/did not. Some teaching ideas for past simple are card games, narrative storytelling, and interview role-playing. Past continuous if form through the addition of was/were and ing to the verb. This form is used for interrupted past actions and almost always required some form of time reference. A common mistake is an omission of was/were or ing. Some teaching ideas are detective games, use of diaries/journals, and telling stories. Past perfect is formed through the addition of had to a past participle. The usage for past perfect is to represent actions that occurred in the past before other actions in the past. Finally, past perfect continuous is formed by adding had been and ing to the verb. This is used to talk about longer actions/situation in the past that had been going on continuously up to the past moment that we are thinking about. Common mistakes for this are forgetting had, been, or the ing.
