1 El Pluscuamperfecto (el pasado perfecto)

2 El Pluscuamperfecto- ¿Cómo se usa?
The past perfect is used to describe an action in the past that occurred BEFORE another action. When Tyler got home, Chris HAD ALREADY DROPPED off the papers. My dad HAD LEFT for work before I woke up. WE still HADN’T FINISHED the activity when class ended.

3 El Pluscuamperfecto- ¿Cómo se forma?
We know that the word “había” means “there was” and “there were”. However, to form the past perfect you use HABER in the imperfect and combine it with the past participle. HABER (imperfecto) past participle había habíamos habías habíais habían -ADO -IDO +

4 This looks familiar! Yes! It looks a lot like the present perfect.
The PRESENT perfect was formed by using the PRESENT tense of “haber” plus the participle (he, has, ha, hemos, han) + (-ad0/-ido). In English it means: “has or have done something” The PAST perfect is formed by using the IMPERFECT form of “haber” plus the particple (había, habías, había, habíamos, habían) + (-ado/-ido) In English it means: “HAD done something”
