02 Imperfect – AR verbs

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!
