Past Simple: REGULAR and IRREGULAR Verbs

- READING ACTIVITY - "Sherlock Holmes, a great detective".

Sherlock holmes was born in England on 6th January, 1854. He worked as a detective and Doctor Watson helped him. They shared a house at 221B Baker Street in London and they travelled a lot.
  Sherlock Holmes didn't believe in superstition and he was famous for his logic and astute observation to solve difficult cases, so he always caught the murderer.
  Apparently, he never fell in love with a woman. However, Irene Adler stole his heart because she was very good at deduction too.
