How do I know when to use the preterite past tense and the imperfect past tense in Spanish? Cómo puedo saber cuando usar el pretérito y el imperfecto cuando hablo en el pasado?
The preterite tense is used to describe a singular action in the past, while the imperfect is used to describe a habit or continuous action or event. El pretérito se usa para descirbir una acción única en el pasado, mientras el imperfecto se usa para describir un hábito o una acción o evento que continúa.
What does "voice" mean in writing and how can you create it?
Just as with speaking, your writing voice is what identifies you and sets you apart. It is a unique way of communicating that can help readers identify you and understand your point of view. Whether it is through the length of your sentences, your word choice, or punctuation, you can create your voice by reading a variety of writers, expanding your vocabulary, and writing what interests you, not just what you think people want to hear.
Subject: US History
Why is Abraham Lincoln widely viewed as the greatest U.S. president?
While this statement is obviously subjective, some popular reasons include his passing of the Emancipation Proclamation, his ability to connect with the American people and unite, or re-unite, the country during the Civil War, avoiding a permanent split and failure of the democratic experiment.
