3 Curso – Preterite v Imperfect

We’ve seen how that Spanish unlike English uses two past tense. The Indefinido for single events in the past that have been considered completed at  a specific time, whereas the Imperfecto is used to describe events in the past in a ‘continuous‘ sense, that is to speak of things that were ‘happening‘ or that we ‘used to’ do.

Think of our Timeline here with the Indefinido representing the X’s, the single events, that occurred on the timeline and the Imperfect as being the continuous line that runs the length of the timeline, with no specific time being referred to.

Click the following links (in order) to review the uses of each and then practice them:

Overview from spanishdict.com with associated practice quizzes. 

An excellent series of exercises from BK Nelson that will get you into the habit of using both tenses.

El Imperfecto

The past tense in Spanish is little more difficult than in English. Were we use one past tense Spanish uses two, we’ve already seen one in the Preterite (for a quick review click here). Now we’re going to look at the Imperfect which is used to talk about things you ‘used to do’ (I used to live in Cork, we used to have a dog) or to describe things in the past (the sun was shining, the birds were singing).

We’ll come back to the differences between the two past tenses in more detail but for now lets concentrate on how you form the imperfect. Click on the links below for a review of the imperfect and some practice exercises.
