How do I learn and distinguish between the many verb tenses in Spanish, and their distinct conjugations?
Practice is key. Begin with simpler tenses, such as the present, the preterite, and the imperfect. Recognize patterns in these tenses. Much of working with verbs is simply memorization. Review the tenses alone, but also look at them in context of actual writing/speech. Take verbs one step at a time.
