Grade 7 Grammar Lesson 2 The past tense

The past perfect tense is formed with had followed by the past participle.

We use this tense to say that an action took place before a certain moment in the past.

When two actions happened in the past, it’s often necessary to show which happened first or earlier, then we use the past perfect for the action that happened earlier.

The simple past is used in one clause and the past perfect in the other.

We may combine the two actions using when, before or after.
