Thank you so much! Fot the past two or three months I have been struggling with preterite and imperfect in my spanish class and this video really helped. I finally get when to use then in different situations. Also thanks for the irregular preterite song that will truly help me with my re-take spanish quiz Tuesday!

On sentence #3 you use the word “nieve” as the word for ice cream. Shouldn’t you use the word “helado” instead?
