Review:
The Past Tense describes the things you did yesterday, last year, back in February, in 1973, or an hour ago.
Regular verbs, such as learn, take an "ed" ending after the subject.
work---worked, learn---learned, visit---visited
Irregular verbs change their form entirely or not at all.
eat---ate, go---went, be---was/were, hit---hit, cut---cut
The form of the past tense is not dependent on the subject. See the example below:
