To conclude, we studied the Past Simple Tense! This Tense is very important because it tells us the actions that happen in the Past. So when we tell others about our life's story we cannot speak without using this Tense.
The purpose of this task was to motivate pupils to talk about their past events; students practice the using of past verbs by telling a story about themselves or about person’s life. Also, this task lets students know regular and irregular verbs in simple past tense.
