02 Imperfect – AR verbs

Posted by Señor Jordan on Feb 15, 2009 in -AR, conjugation, grammar, imperfect, regular, verbs, year 2 |

Hola. In this lesson, we’re going over the imperfect tense.  This is another past tense in Spanish.  Eventually I’ll have a few lessons explaining the major differences between the preterite and the imperfect. But for now, know that the imperfect is used to mean ‘used to ___‘ and ‘was/were ___ing‘.

Feel free to leave any questions, comments or suggestions below!

Verb conjugations:

bailar-imperfect

trabajar-imperfect

 

Vocabulario:
cantar
– to sing
bailar
– to dance
hablar
– to talk
jugar
(u-ue) – to play
manejar
– to drive
nadar
– to swim
tocar
– to play
trabajar
– to work
viajar
– to travel
visitar – to visit

en
– on, in
el restaurante – the restaurant
el cine – the movies / the movie theater
