Speak in the Past Tense: Verb List 3

To practice speaking in the past tense, use these questions as a starting point. Answer the question and continue speaking to tell a story or elaborate on your answer.

Example: Name something you agreed to do.

I agreed to work on the weekend. This decision later became a big regret for me when my friends told me they wanted to take a spontaneous boat trip.

* In this list, all the -ed endings are pronounced with the “D” sound, because of the “b, g, l, m, n, r, w, v, y, a, e, i, o, u” before the “ed,” e.g., agreed sounds like agreeD.

agreedName something you agreed to do.
believedName something you believed once, but do not believe now.
calledName someone you called on the phone.
carriedName something you carried recently.
explainedDescribe something you explained.
followedDescribe a person that followed another.
happenedWrite a common expression with this word.
learnedName something you learned as a child.
livedName a place you lived in the past.
listenedName something you listened to recently.
playedWhat sport or instrument did you play during high school?

Success! You're on the list.
