when to use the word" was and were"
You say "was" for past tense when it is singular:
Eg: I was going to speak
You use "were" when it is past tense and plural
Eg: We were going to speak.
You can also use "were" for wishful thinking
Eg: I wish I were a boy.

Hi Michael Tod,
You question is quite vague without a context, it is difficult to offer you a correct answer. But in a nut shell, "was" is the past tense of "is" which we used on pronouns such as "he", " she" and "it". For examples: He / she was late for work this morning.

"Were " is the past tense used on pronouns: They, you, we and people in general. I.e. We were watching movie at home last night.

However, "were" is used in subjunctive contexts as well. i.e. If I were John's boss, he would have been fired long time ago.
