Unit 6 goes over past tense forms and it is pretty straightforward. Past tense forms include past simple, past continuous, past perfect and past perfect continuous. Like Unit 4, this unit goes over the pattern used for each form, usages and the common mistakes students make. The affirmative form of past simple is just the subject followed by adding -d or -ed to the base form of the verb; for example, ?I walked.? Sometimes the past form of a verb is irregular and these must be memorized by students. The pattern for the affirmative form of past continuous is: subject + was/were + verb-ing. Among its usages for this form include describing interrupted past actions (?I was cooking when the doorbell rang?) , to indicate a gradual development that took place in the past (?The students in the library were getting louder?), and to express an action which took place before a certain time and probably continued after (?At noon we were halfway through class.?) The past perfect form is: subject + had + past participle. It is used to discuss actions that had occurred before other actions in the past (?Before I got to work yesterday, I had to drop off some mail.?) The past perfect continuous form is: subject + had + been + verb-ing. The usage of this form is to talk about longer actions or situations in the past that had been going on up to the past moment being discussed (?Before the plane landed, she had been listening to music.?)
