The Imperfect Tense Grammar in Context

Guided notes and contextualized texts and activities for Spanish classes

Intermediate (Levels 2-4), Novice (Levels 1-2)
6 Pages

These notes explain how to form the imperfect tense, a brief overview of when it is used and some "trigger" terms to look for as clues to use the imperfect, as well as a reading written in the imperfect with several activities (questions and instructions to re-write it in the present tense). Additionally, there is a page of tips for the teacher on how to work through the notes with your students.


  • Super easy to put this one together. It was a great way to review the imperfect with my students!

  • My students and I found this resource to be engaging to practice what we have learned in class. Thanks!

  • These notes were great and the story was easy for them to read. The present tense activity was a little difficult for my struggling learners so they created a parallel text instead by changing details about the story. It was a good reinforcement of the imperfect tense.

  • I should have used this earlier in the school year when the students are not so DONE with school! LOL! But I used in Spanish 2 to practice imperfect a little more....I should have gone more slowly thru the material but that was my fault and not the material's. The students did what I assigned with ease and I appreciated the comprehensible story as usual! Always good materials!
