Imparfait ou passé composé

When speaking in the past, it can be difficult to decide whether to use the “imparfait” (imperfect tense) or the “passé composé”.

In this video, I will remind you how to build the two tenses and I will explain when to use the imparfait rather than the passé composé.

Watch the video below to

  • revise how to build the imparfait and the passé composé
  • decide when to use the imparfait and the passé composé
