Simple Past

Kita menggunakan past simple  untuk membicarakan tentang kegiatan pernyataan yang kita anggap selesai di masa lalu.

Kita menggunakannya untuk membicarakan tentang hal-hal khusus di waktu tertentu.

  • She came back last Friday.
  • I saw her in the street.
  • They didn’t agree to the deal.

Dapat juga digunakan untuk membicarakan rentang waktu.

  • She lived in Tokyo for seven years.
  • They were in London from Monday to Thursday of last week.
  • When I was living in New York, I went to all the art exhibitions I could.

  • from March to June
  • for a long time
  • for 6 weeks
