Hi kids from 9th A and B this is for you!

The Past Perfect Simple

The past perfect simple expresses an action taking place before a certain time or action in the past:

  • He had just finished his homework when his mother arrived.
  • When Gina got to the bank the robbers had already left
  • The doctor hadn't prescribed Jim any medicines before he had the tests results.
Auxiliary verb Have in the Past = HAD + Main Verb in the Past Participle
                              ( -ed for regular verbs or 3rd column for the Irregular Verbs)

Signal Words
already, just, never, not yet, once, until that day (with reference to the past)
