  9. Reasons for using the imperfect Uncertain beginning and or ending to a past action or event. Also, can be thought of the past tense “ing” form. Ex. Lavaba los platos. Estaba picando la nariz, cuando saqué la foto. Habitual events or actions in the past occurred regularly or in expected order or pattern. Ex. Me cepillaba los dientes. Me bañaba por la noche. Indefinite expressions indicated the idea of infinity or beyond! Like the event or action always or never occurred using words like always and never. Ex. Siempre leía. Nunca bailaba.

Weather is also imperfect in the past. Ex: Era muy gordo. Tenía hambre. Luvía. Hacía sol. Timeis imperfect because it is an infinite process that never ends. The date is also imperfect in the past. Ex. Eran las seis. Era la una. Era el 2 de abril. Originis what something is made of or where it originates from. Nationality, race and religion are also imperfect. Ex. Era de lana. Ella era latina.

Tenía dos años, cuando aprendí montar en triciclo. Emotionis imperfect in that it is impossible to pin point the exact beginning and or ending of the feeling or emotional state. Ex. Tenía miedo, cuando me robaron. Mentalprocesses in themselves are usually non removeable or difficult to determine start or finish. You could STILL! Ex. Sabía mucho, porque sacó muchas notas buenas en escuela secundaria.
