    "go past" (2)



    Dear passengers, we're going past the Mississippi river at the right side of the aircraft right now.

    Mr. driver, could you let me know when you go past the intersection with Yonge St.?

    I went past Ana yesterday but I think she didn't see me.

    I was afraid of going past the gate because of the big dog.

    When we traveled to Montreal by car last year, we went past a lot of beautiful little cities.

    When I arrived at home today morning, I went past a man that was having a convulsion on the sidewalk.

    Hi,
    Are these sentences good examples of how to use "go past", please?
    Thanks.

    To me, as a native speaker, your use of "past" is fine in every sentence.
    However, there are other minor things which I hope you won't mind my pointing out.

    Hope this helps,
