    Excellent Book on Spanish Past Tenses

    The author sent me a free copy of this book recently. It came at a very good time since I'm about to teach my Spanish class the difference between the imperfect and the preterit. I will probably use some of the exercises in this book to help my students understand the past tenses. Table of Contents 1. The Imperfect: Description and Background 2. The Preterit: Narration, or what happened? 3. The imperfect and the preterit together: Narrating and describing the past 4. The present perfect: What have you done for me lately? 5. The pluperfect: What happened before something else 6. The conditional: What would be and the future of the past 7. The conditional perfect: What would have been 8. The sequence of tenses: Observations on the indicative and the subjunctive The section on the present perfect is very interesting. The author has noticed that students have been using the English present perfect less and less recently. I have noticed that several of my Spanish-speaking friends use the Spanish present perfect less than I had learned. Brandon Simpson
