Yesterday - The Past - Questions and Answers

When asking questions about the past, you can ask questions like:

"How did you enjoy the movie?"
"What time did you get home last night?"
"How was your date with Jackie?"
"How was the traffic going to the airport?"
"What have you been up to?"
"What did you do last weekend?"
"How was the party?"
"How come you didn't come to class yesterday?"
"How did your presentation go?"

Here are some ways you can answer these types of questions.  Remember to use past tense because these actions already occurred.

"How was your date with Jackie?"
