Grammar Point: imperfect verb forms
The imperfect is used to describe a past action that took place over a period of time. It describes a past "situation" rather than a past "event", for example, Quand j'étais petit, je voulais un cheval
("When I was
young, I wanted a horse").
Verbs form their imperfect by adding -ais
, etc. to the base (e.g.: Je parlais
= "I was speaking"). You can learn more about the imperfect here
