In this unit, I learned about forms, usages, and typical student errors for the past tenses, including the past simple, past continuous, past perfect and past perfect continuous tenses. The structure of past tenses are similar to those of the present tenses. The past simple is used for actions completed at a definite time in the past. The past continuous is used in several ways, including for interrupted past actions and to indicate gradual development that took place in the past. The past perfect is used to indicate actions that occurred before other actions in the past. The past perfect continuous is used to talk about longer actions or situations that had been going on continuously up to the past moment being described. Common mistakes with these tenses include misuse of did/did not, omission of the verb to be or -ing, or omission of the auxiliary verbs 'had' and 'been'.
