O verbo to be, no passado, utiliza 2 conjugações, was e were. O was é usado para a primeira e terceira pessoas do singular (I, he/she/it), e o were é usado para as restantes:

Affirmative form (forma afirmativa)

Use a forma was para I, he, she, it e were para as demais pessoas:

I was (eu era ,eu estava)
you were ( você era ,você estava)
he was (ele era ,ele estava)
she was (ela era, ela estava)
it was (ele(a) era, ele(a) estava)
we were (nós éramos, nós estávamos)
you were (vocês eram, vocês estavam )
they were (eles(as) eram ,eles(as) estavam)

Negative form
Usam-se as formas negativas wasn’t (was not) para I, he, she, it e weren’t( were not) para as demais pessoas.
I wasn’t
you weren’t
he wasn’t
she wasn’t
it wasn’t
we weren’t
you weren’t

Interrogative form

As perguntas se formam com a anteposição do verbo to be ao sujeito:
was I …?
were you…?
was he…?
was she…?

Exemplos:

NOTE: O passado de are é were e o passado de is é was. O passado de am é was também.

Espero que tenham aprendido a usar passado do verbo to be.

Abraço a todos!!
