Today we’re going to talk about the past tenses in Spanish.

PRETÉRITO IMPERFECTO (THE IMPERFECT TENSE)
It is used for repeated or continuous events in the past. Por ejemplo:
🎮En los 90’s, jugaba “street fighter” en mi consola.

PERFECTO (Perfect).
To form the perfect tense, use the present tense of haber+past participle.
