Grammar: Past Perfect Tense

Quando falamos de duas ações no passado e queremos dizer que uma ação aconteceu antes da outra, podemos usar o past perfect . Ele é formado com o had  + verbo no particípio passado.

When Susie arrived at Bob’s house, she found out he had left.

Isso quer dizer que Bob saiu de casa antes de Susie chegar.

Geralmente usamos already  com o past perfect  para enfatizar que a primeira ação foi concluída.

When I arrived, everybody had already eaten.

Para formar orações na negativa, usamos hadn’t  + verbo no particípio passado.

Marty was very hungry because he hadn’t eaten any breakfast.
