1 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite Español 2 Capítulo 9 página 311 y 313

2 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite Do you remember the present progressive? Its used when a person wants to say that an action is happening right now.

3 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite It uses the present tense of estar + the present participle. No puedo ir al cine. Estoy estudiando para el examen.

4 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite To describe something that was taking place over a period of time in the past, use the imperfect progressive, which uses the imperfect tense of estar + the present participle.

5 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite Estaba esquiando cuando me caí y me lastimé la rodilla. I was skiing when I fell and hurt my knee.

6 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite The present and imperfect progressive tenses use the same irregular present participles.

7 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite Remember, to form the present participle of -ir stem-changing verbs, e changes to i and o changes to u:

8 E > I decir diciendo pedir pidiendo divertir divirtiendo seguir siguiendo servir sirviendo vestir vistiendo

9 O > U Dormir Durmiendo Morir Muriendo

10 I > Y For the following -er verbs, the I of -iendo changes to y: Creer Creyendo Leer Leyendo traer Trayendo Ir Yendo

11 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite When you use pronouns with the imperfect progressive, you can put them before estar or attach them to the participle.

12 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite ¿Qué estaba haciendo cuando te cortaste? Estaba afeitándome. Or Me estaba afeitando.

13 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite Note that the imperfect progressive describes what was taking place while the preterite tells a specific occurence in the past or interrupts the action.

14 Imperfect Progressive and Preterite Ella estaba corriendo cuando se lastimó el tobillo. The imperfect is the ing whereas the preterite interrupted the ongoing action.
