Hello there! How's it going?
OK. Now, we're going to talk about Wh-questions with did, was and were.
What are the Wh-questions? They star usually with a wh and an h and there's one exception. For example, it can be:
For example: When did you move to Mexico City? When we use When, when we use the auxiliary verb Did, our main verb goes in the present tense; When did you move to Mexico City? ; Another questions, Where did you grow up?
And, in order to answer these questions you need to use the verb in the past tense. For example, the answer to the first question When did you move to Mexico City? I moved there in 2000. Moved is in the past tense. Where did you grow up? I grew up in Canada. So, in the question we use did and our verb goes in the present tense. But, when we answer our verb is in the past tense.
OK. This is with did. We always use did and with another verb. When we use Was and Were, if we use a verb it has to go in the present continuous tense. For example: What were you doing at 9:00 o'clock?; were doing I was watching TV; was watching. Because was is used for I, he, she and it, and were for you, we and they. Why was he late for class? Why was he late? Because he didn't get up early. We can combine them. Why was he late for class? Because he didn't get up early. Who was your teacher last year? Oh, my teacher was Mr. Brown. Was you teacher Mr. Brown? Yes, he was/No, he wasn't. Were you late for class? Yes, I was/No, I wasn't.
Again, OK? So, remember the wh-questions, you start out with one of those words; What, Where, Why, When, Who and How. How did you feel? I felt fine.How was you day? It was OK. How were the programs? They were difficult.
Do you have any questions?
