As one of Spanish's two simple past tenses , the imperfect indicative has a conjugation that is essential to learn. It is the verb form used most often to describe conditions as they existed in the past, to provide background to events, and to describe habitual actions.

As with some other conjugation forms, the imperfect indicative forms are made by removing the infinitive ending of the verb ( -ar , -er or -ir ) and replacing it with an ending that indicates who is performing the action of the verb.

For example, the infinitive form of the verb that means "to study" is estudiar . Its infinitive ending is -ar , leaving the stem of estudi- . To say "I was studying," add -aba to the stem, forming estudiaba . To say "you were studying" (singular informal), add -abas to the stem, forming estudiabas . Other forms exist for other persons . (Note: In this lesson, the forms "was studying," "was learning" and so on are used to translate the imperfect indicative. Other translations also could be used, such as "used to study" or even "studied." The translation used depends on the context.)

The imperfect ( abbreviated IMPERF ) is a verb form, found in various languages, which combines past tense (reference to a past time) and imperfective aspect (reference to a continuing or repeated event or state). It can therefore have meanings similar to the English "was walking" or "used to walk." It contrasts with preterite forms, which refer to a single completed event in the past. The Spanish imperfect tense can be taken in different ways, but there are really only two. [ clarification needed ]

Traditionally, the imperfect of languages such as Latin and French is referred to as one of the tenses , although in fact it encodes aspectual information in addition to tense (time reference). It may be more precisely called past imperfective . [1] '

English is an example of a language with no general imperfective and expresses it via different ways ( see below and Imperfective aspect in English ). When the term "imperfect" used in relation to English it refers to forms much more commonly called past progressive or past continuous (like was doing or were doing ). These are combinations of past tense with specifically continuous or progressive aspect.

In this module we will study another past tense, the Imparfait ( the Imperfect ), which is easy to learn because there is only one irregular verb ( être ).

Compare these examples with the following which are very similar except that the verbs are in the passé composé .

In the latter sentences in which the verbs are in the passé composé, the actions were performed once, whereas in the examples in which the verbs are in the imparfait, the actions took place repeatedly in the past.
