What about they didn't arrive

"They did not arrive" would be "de ankom ikke" :)

How do you know it is past tense. I thought it said "They are not coming"

kommer kom...that is the difference

In this case "kom" translated as "come" when i touch the word. Next lesson said that it is "came". So it is misstranslated ... they shoud give translate help as "did come" or came so i would know what they think about...

They did give us a hint, though, by saying "ikke."

So, would "They came" be "De kom"?

I thought came was kam? Or am I wrong here?

"came" is "kom". It would be "kam" in German and "kwam" in Dutch.
