    They was past me

    Hello, teachers.

    I have a question.

    I know "They walked past me" is correct

    But "They was a past me" Is it correct?

    Hello, chingchangchong.
    It's not correct, unfortunately.

    not a teacher

    But "They was a past me" Is it correct?

    Your question differs from your title. Perhaps you meant to type: "They was past me". Is it correct?
    But it's not correct, as tzfujimino says.
    You can say, "They were past me".
    For example:
    a) Did you see their faces?
    b) No, they were past me before I could have a look.
