A podcast for intermediate Spanish students with a video version.

How come?! Yes, the same contexts are correct for imperfecto vs. indefinido. Let’s learn the difference between Preterite vs Imperfect. This would be your beginner’s and intermediate’s guide to the past tense. And let’s learn why some rules are not always going to work. This is the first episode of two.
