Perfecting the Preterit & Imperfect

Practically all Spanish students struggle with the  preterit & imperfect tenses, at all levels; even advanced level students.

Why do you suppose that is? 

I think it’s because these particular past tenses are just so different from English.

But what if I told you that with my “secret” formula for distinguishing between these tenses + 

10 weeks of constant practice, that YOU could be an expert?

What if I told you that after these 10 weeks you would easily be able to decide between these tenses?

Would you give yourself the chance to learn it?

In this course we will:

  • Start with an overall view of these tenses
  • Work on conjugations
  • Learn & practice the rules through exercises and homework
  • Have the opportunity to practice using the preterit & imperfect in both written & verbal communication (the verbal communication will be through Telegram, an app similar to WhatsApp)

After this course we hope that:

  • You will have a much clearer understanding of the way these tenses work
  • You will know and understand the rules and when to use which tense 
  • Using these tenses will come more naturally
