Question:

How do I know when to use the preterite tense instead of the imperfect tense?

Inactive
Joshua H.
Answer:

The preterite tense is the simple past tense that refers only to events that occured (i.e. "They played." The imperfect tense is typically used to describe actions as they were or used to happen (i.e. They used to play; they were playing." Example: Yo jugué fútbol la semana pasada (I played soccer last week). Ayer, jugaba al fútbol (Yesterday, I was playing soccer).

Question:

How do I approach forming a thesis statement for my essay?

Joshua H.
Answer:

Begin by narrowing down a specific, debatable, interesting claim for which you will argue in the body of the paper. Next, think of two to three supporting reasons or pieces of evidence for this claim. Finally, write one good, clear sentence containing the claim and supporting reasons. This thesis sentence will act as the cornerstone for your entire essay.
