Exercise: imperfect tense of -ar verbs
On this page, you'll practise the imperfect tense of -ar verbs.
For now, you'll just practise the singular forms (yo,
- you'll be asked to translate used to... or was/were ...ing, but
in either case, you're being asked for the imperfect tense;
- to form the imperfect tense, replace -ar with -aba:
from caminar (to walk), I was walking, I used to walk
- if it's the tú form, then add -s
(so you were walking/used to walk becomes caminabas);
- be careful of the formal you (usted) form, which
just ends in -aba (like the he/she form).
(If you want to practise all forms,
continue on to the next exercise.)
On the next page, you can practise
all imperfect forms of -ar verbs.
