Practice Makes Perfect: Spanish Verb Tenses by Dorothy Richmond

This book is fantastic! Im working on learning Spanish, and this filled a niche I needed -- a walk through a cornucopia of verb tenses, with write-in exercises to practice as you go. Along the way youll expand your verb vocabulary (and learn some nouns and adjectives, too). The book includes helpful, accessible discussions about usage (e.g., preterite vs. imperfect past tenses), not just a boring presentation of conjugation tables.

Pros:
- Comprehensive coverage of verb tenses. Super useful! My speaking and reading skills improved even after only a few days study.
- Interesting, challenging practice sentences.
- Spanish-English and English-Spanish dictionaries (albeit short) in the back.
- Answers to exercises included.

Cons:
- Some of the correct answers are not written with proper Spanish, especially early in the book. For example, one exercise has you translate I believe that... but hasnt taught you the subjunctive tense yet, so the answer key uses the indicative tense for the following verb. Its probably still readable Spanish, but its very simplified and likely makes you sound like a little kid. Happily, this tends to go away as you get deeper in the book and (presumably) can employ more sophisticated grammar. However, Id have preferred if the book simply steered clear of this sort of thing -- dont ask the student to translate something they arent capable of yet.
- That connects to a minor complaint, which is that the book clearly assumes that youll go through it in linear order, as later sections build on the tenses and vocabulary given earlier. While this is kind of reasonable (I guess), it tripped me up because I tired of the endless section on present tense verbs and jumped ahead to learn some past tense constructions. Making these more standalone would make the book a bit more usable. Theres no logical reason that you need to have learned all possible present tense verbs, and every irregular exception, before starting on the past tense.

Spanish Conditional Tense: The Only Guide You’ll Ever Need

If you want to learn the Spanish present perfect tense, you only have to know one verb conjugation, how to form a past particle and a few phrases that trigger this tense. As a tense, the Spanish present perfect gives so much in terms of versatility and simplicity. The Spanish present perfect is also the first tense I recommend Spanish students learn in order to start talking about the past in Spanish. Moreover, I recommend you start with this tense because it is the easiest Spanish past tense to learn and you can use it in a lot of situations even when it is technically wrong. That said, when you combine the present perfect with the phrases in this post you will avoid any grammatical errors. In order to form past participles for regular ar verbs, you need to remove the ar and replace it with an ado. For example:.

The perfect tenses, like progressive tenses, are compound verbs, meaning that they are actually formed by two vebs working together. The difference between the two is that while progressive tenses indicate actions in progress I am walking , perfect tenses indicate completed actions I have walked.
