Learn the IRREGULAR PASTS (column 2, see list at the end of your textbook). Repeat also column 3 (the third form of the verb) because you’ll need it next year to form the Present perfect!
The second form, “to go – went – gone” is the past simple, and we ONLY USE IT in affirmative sentences. In negative and interrogative sentences we use the past simple of the AUXILIARY, “do”, which is “DID” and the bare infinitive of the main verb: I didn’t go to the Málaga demo, but I went on strike! 🙂
REGULAR PASTS are easy: just add “(e)d”! But be careful with their pronunciation! ❤

About your listening diaries, you should listen to the audios in units 4 and 5, as usual, especially the important ones! For this week, dialogue “I can’t sleep” in 5B (neighbours). And about my podcast: Likes and dislikes, My Lifestyle, My Neighbours and for Semana Blanca, learn The Weather in Fuengirola and the Dialogue In a Clothes Shop (Practical English).
