In Spanish, the preterite tense (el pretérito) is used to describe actions completed at a point in the past. So the Spanish preterite is not used to describe regular or continuous actions in the past with no specific beginning or end. In that case, we use the imperfect. Therefore, we use the preterite to talk about completed actions in the past. So, it is used to talk about beginnings and ends, things that occurred on specific dates or days, at specific times or during specific time periods, and events in a sequence. There are two forms in this verbal tense, namely: Regular Imperfect Forms and Irregular Imperfect Forms.

On the other hand, the imperfect tense (el imperfecto) is used to describe past habitual actions or to talk about what someone was doing when they were interrupted by something else. In general, the imperfect is used to talk about past actions, conditions, or events that occurred regularly or frequently or that were in progress in a moment in the past. It is also used to tell time, talk about dates, give a person’s age, and describe features, conditions, and feelings in the past. As in the preterite tense, there are two forms in this verbal tense, namely: Regular Imperfect Forms and Irregular Imperfect Forms.

The regular verb forms for both the preterite and the imperfect are given in three ways, that is, for ar, er and ir endings. So the conjugation will depend on the pronoun of the sentence and the verb ending. On the other hand, the irregular verb forms don’t have a defined structure.

Decide if the following sentence is grammatically CORRECT or INCORRECT. Marcos es tan guapo que tú. Correct Incorrect


For this case we can translate the sentence given as:

__________ milk is put on custard?

They put 14 ounces of condensed milk and 12 ounces of evaporated milk.

We must complete the sentence with the most appropriate option. It is noted that the question refers to the amount of milk needed for flan. “Milk” is the feminine and singular subject.

So, the most appropriate option is “Cuánta”

ANswer:

¿Cuánta  leche se pone en flan?

Se ponen 14 onzas de leche condensada y 12 onzas de leche evaporada.

Complete the sentence with the appropriate form of the verb Ver: Tú ____ el maíz.


The verb which is irregular in the preterite is querer.
When it comes to hablar and comer, they are both regular verbs. This means that in order to conjugate them, you just need to delete -ar for hablar and -er for comer, and add the following suffixes: é, aste, ó, amos, asteis, aron for hablar, and í, iste, ió, imos, isteis, ieron for comer.
However, when it comes to querer, you have to learn the entire conjugation by heart: quise, quisiste, quiso, quisimos, quisisteis, quisieron.
