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‘.

02 Preterite – IR Stem-changers (o-u)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Feb 13, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, ir, preterite, reflexives, stem-changers, verbs, year 2

This video lesson covers -ir verbs in the preterite that stem change.

In the present, they change (o-ue) in the yo, , él/ella/ud, ellos/ellas/uds forms.  In the preterite, they do something a little different.   I apologize for it being a little long.  Hope this video is helpful.

Let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions about this video below.  Enjoy!

02 Preterite – IR Stem-changers (e-i)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Feb 8, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, ir, preterite, reflexives, stem-changers, verbs, year 2

Hola. Finally there is a video (although a little long) to explain those strange stem-changers in the preterite.  Although you might remember that -ar and -er verbs in the preterite don’t stem-change like they do in the present, the -ir verbs have to be weird.  This video will explain how (e-ie) and (e-i) -ir verbs work in the preterite.  Enjoy!

Notice that servir is actually an (e-i) verb in the present. This was a mistake in the video!
