Many of the sounds created from the standard "U" sound is captured in many different sounds such as "oo" and the "Y" lesson, but the short form of "U" as in fun and run will be covered here.

|Front||Yesterday - The Past - General Statements Listen to the Entire Lesson In daily conversation, talking about the past is done very frequently. Whenever you meet a friend, you always tell each other what you have been doing recently. Friends are always interested in each other so they want to know how you have been spending your time in the past. Today's lesson is going to target past tense communication. This goes hand in hand with the last two lessons and changing a few words around can make a future or present tense sentence into a past tense sentence. To begin, here are a couple of sentences that are common to say: I went to the airport yesterday." I met Bob last week." I was an hour late for my meeting." I went to the bus stop, but I was 30 seconds late. A person on the street told me the bus just went by." I completed that task this morning." Speaking in the past requires past tense words. Let's take a closer examination for the sentences above. Past Tense Present Tense Future Tense Went Go Going to go Met Meet Will meet Was Am Going to be Completed Complete Will complete As you can see by some of the examples in the chart, some words change when speaking in the past tense. Besides some words that change, many times a word with the letter 'd' or 'ed' at the end changes the word to past tense. Here are some examples: I was being polite so I opened the door for him." I stapled the papers together to keep them organized." The paper ripped on the bottom, so I taped them together." I switched the presents around because I found out Jane doesn't like red lipstick." I was very interested in the topic so I paid close attention." The tricky part is to know when to add a 'd' to the end of a word to make it past tense. There are exceptions that can cause confusion, for example, I rode my bike to school." It would be incorrect to say, 'I rided...' I built the house from scratch." Incorrect way is to say, 'I builded...' I sat on the chair next to the emergency exit." Incorrect way is to say, 'sitted...' So remember to use past tense words correctly or the other person might not understand what you are saying. Yesterday - The Past - Questions and Answers When asking questions about the past, you can ask questions like: How did you enjoy the movie?" What time did you get home last night?" How was your date with Jackie?" How was the traffic going to the airport?" What have you been up to?" What did you do last weekend?" How was the party?" How come you didn't come to class yesterday?" How did your presentation go?" Here are some ways you can answer these types of questions. Remember to use past tense because these actions already occurred. How did you enjoy the movie?"

What time did you get home last night?" I got home at two in the morning." I didn't make it home until eleven last night." I made it home at midnight." How was your date with Jackie?" The date went so well. We had dinner at a seafood restaurant. And then we saw a movie together." I don't think it went too well. We hardly had anything to talk about.
