    The imperfect tense (el imperfecto) is one of the several past tenses in Spanish. It is used mainly to describe past habitual actions or to set the scene in the past

    The imperfect can generally translate to be what someone was doing or used to do.It sets the background knowledge or scenery for a story.

    The preterite is a "perfect" tense because it reports events viewed as completed within a finite time frame (a change, a definite beginning or end at a specific point). An "imperfect" tense conveys duration, progression, incompleteness (a state, something experienced for some time) So, first you need to see the difference between IMPERFECT & PRETERITE. Yes.

    Adone ___________ (ir) tu en ese momento? ---------------------------------------------------------------------- So based on what I gave you as 'definition' of PRETERITE and IMPERFECT, which one do you think we are looking for, (PRETERITE or IMPERFECT)?

    Sorry, I'm stumped. I'm assuming, from your post, that our choices are to either use the Preterite, or the Imperfect. Is that right? If "fuiste" really isn't the answer, then I have no idea what it is. We're talking about a single moment in time. That's why we should be using the Preterite form.

    You mentioned, through earlier messages, that you're in Spanish 2. And even so, you do ask quite a lot of Spanish questions, for someone who speaks Spanish fluently. So cariño, let's drop the act. Tú no me engañas. I don't mind you asking questions. Pero las mentiras me molestan. ~~~~~~~~~~~ And, yes, you're right. Our choices, are "fuiste" (preterite) and "ibas" (imperfect). That is what I understand.
