Spanish Conjugations


  • Basic Spanish Knowledge
  • You want to learn Spanish conjugations.


To learn verb conjugations, you need to focus on (and practice) one verb conjugation pattern at a time. And it all starts today with the Preterite Tense! Focus on one verb conjugation pattern at a time, and you'll see, it's really not that hard. It's faster and It's better.

Talking about the Past in Spanish is a vast topic, by far more complicated that talking about the present or the future so I'll give you a peak inside just how to do it, armed with some essential verbs and phrases to really get you going!

I will be the narrator of this course, I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina. We speak castellano here, our accent is a little bit different, if you want to learn with an Argentinian Speaker this course is perfect for you!

First I will explain you the basics and afterwards you will have to do some exercises. I'm sure you'll like it.

After listening all the videos of this course you will be more confortable using the past tense in Spanish, I promise you that.

If you have any question don't hesitate and write me a message, I will be glad to help you.

Remember that practice makes progress so keep studying Spanish!

Thank you :)

SPANISH: Hola! Mi nombre es Maximiliano, pero la gente me dice Maxi. Soy de Buenos Aires, Argentina. Viajo mucho y actualmente estoy aprendiendo 2 nuevos idiomas: Ruso e Italiano, y se lo que cuesta.


ENGLISH: Hello! My name is Maximiliano, people call me Maxi though. I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I travel a lot and I am currently learning Russian and Italian by myself, so I know how stressful the way to a new language can be.
