Common Mistakes

Don't mix the past participle when you should use the past tense
-- or vice versa.

don't mix the past tense and the present perfect
!
Ex) Wrong: The firefighters have heard the alarm, woke up, and went to put out the fire.
Right: The firefighters heard the alarm, woke up, and went off to put out the fire.
Common Mistakes cont.
Use the past perfect
(verb with the helping verb had)
to describe the earlier of two past actions

Don't use the conditional "if clauses" that describe the earlier of two past actions,
