The Three Enemigos are so irregular, they often look more like each other, than they do themselves! Fortunately (as with most things) when you take a closer look and focus–they’re not THAT bad. Watch this fun video, to make peace with your enemies.watch the video
This is the last past tense conjugation video. Watch this week’s video not only to learn imperfect ER/IR conjugation, but also so you can get the most out of the next video, where I’ll show you quotes from Orange is the New Black–how the past tense is used in real life.watch the video
The past tense in Spanish can be tricky. But if you break it into the smallest parts possible, each individual part, really isn’t that hard.

Lots of the most common verbs in Spanish are irregular and I’m sick of avoiding them in my examples. So today, we’re gonna talk about the first kind: E to IE.watch the video
