anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
el/ella/usted fue
anonymous
  • anonymous
nosotros fuimos
anonymous
  • anonymous
vosotros fuisteis
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ustedes/ellos/ellas fueron
anonymous
  • anonymous
yo tú él/ella/usted nosotros/-as vosotros/-as ellos/ellas/ustedes @SavannahMiller27 , YES?
anonymous
  • anonymous
That was preterite, and no @some_someone that is in the present form
anonymous
  • anonymous
what? I never said anything I just put the yo tú él/ella/usted nosotros/-as vosotros/-as ellos/ellas/ustedes
anonymous
  • anonymous
Here is the imperfect form: Yo iba,tu ibas,el/ella/usted iba, nosotros ibamos, vosotros ibais ellos/ellas iban
anonymous
  • anonymous
@hedyeh99 you put those too? I have not put any verbs yet?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@InYourHead
anonymous
  • anonymous
The sentence is: Adonde ___________ (ir) tu en ese momento? I tried fuiste but it says that it's wrong.
anonymous
  • anonymous
@hedyeh99 if you have a problem with me, then PM.
anonymous
  • anonymous
it is ibas
anonymous
  • anonymous
@hedyeh99 you should explain.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because, they are asking for the imperfect
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
@SavannahMiller27, well @InYourHead is the BEST SPANISH teacher, but unfortunately he is offline.
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
@some_someone , I speak Spanish fluently
anonymous
  • anonymous
I just tried ibas and it doesn't work either...I'm confused I thought it was ibas to begin with.
anonymous
  • anonymous
It should be ibas >.>
anonymous
  • anonymous
@InYourHead explains thoroughly BTW @hedyeh99 I speak Spanish fluently also.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok @some_someone , do you have a different answer then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Got any ideas other than ibas and fuiste? Bc it's saying that neither of them are correct.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Irias? Accent mark on the second i
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay i'll try it @hedyeh99
anonymous
  • anonymous
Preterite yo -------- fui tú ------------------ fuiste él/ella/usted ----------------- fue nosotros/-as ------------------------ fuimos vosotros/-as ----------------------------------- fuisteis ellos/ellas/ustedes -------------------------------------------- fueron
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks :), but I was almost certain it was imperfect, funny it didn't work
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so irias with an accent on the second i doesn't work either...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Imperfect yo -------- iba tú ------------------ ibas él/ella/usted ----------------- iba nosotros/-as ------------------------ íbamos vosotros/-as ----------------------------------- ibais ellos/ellas/ustedes -------------------------------------------- iban
anonymous
  • anonymous
well it should be fuiste..or vas a ir...
anonymous
  • anonymous
@SavannahMiller27 do you see both IMPERFECT and PRETERITE?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@some_someone Yes I see it. I've tried both fuiste and ibas and it says that it's wrong.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okaii what did @hedyeh99 tell you?
anonymous
  • anonymous
To try irias with an accent over the second i. Tried that and it's wrong too.
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
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)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Adone fuiste tu en ese momento? Adone ibas tu en ese momento?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
@InYourHead but were my conjugations right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Don't you speak fluent Spanish?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah I believe the user was to either use the Preterite, or the Imperfect. And yeah I do speak fluent Spanish.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I just wanted your opinion also :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.
