  • Page 42 Chapter 1
  • Realidades 3

Preterite
  • You have already learned to talk about the past
    using the preterite tense for actions that began
    and ended at a definite time.

Preterite
  • Ana cantó en la fiesta anoche.
  • Ana sang at the party last night.
  • (Completed past action.)

Imperfect
  • The imperfect tense is another way to talk about
    the past. We use it to describe actions without
    any indication of their beginning or end.

5
Imperfect
  • Ana cantaba.
  • Ana was singing.
  • (No indication of beginning or end.)

6
Imperfect
  • We use the imperfect to talk about actions that
    happened repeatedly in the past. In English we
    often say used to or would to express
    this idea.

Imperfect
  • Generalmente caminaban mucho.
  • Generally they would walk a lot.

Imperfect

  • They used to play with other children in the
    family.

Imperfect
  • Expressions such as generalmente, a menudo,
    muchas veces, todos los días, siempre, and nunca
    can cue us to use the imperfect.

12
Imperfect
  • Since the yo and the Ud./él/ella forms
    are the same, we often use the subject pronouns
    to avoid confusion.
