All rights reserved.1.1-5 Uses of the imperfect As a general rule, the imperfect is used to describe actions which are seen by the speaker as incomplete or continuing, while the preterite is used to describe actions which have been completed. The imperfect expresses what was happening at a certain time or how things used to be. The preterite, in contrast, expresses a completed action.

A good way to remember the difference between the preterite vs. the imperfect is to think about how you would record the past. Either a video or a snapshot. The imperfect is ongoing past like a video. The preterite is a completed past action like a snapshot. Copyright © 2008 Vista Higher Learning. All rights reserved.1.1-8
Ex. Preterite (snapshot) I fell off my bike and broke my leg. He kicked the ball. Ex. Imperfect (video) I used to ride my bike everyday. We always sang when we cleaned the house. Copyright © 2008 Vista Higher Learning. All rights reserved.1.1-9
