What's the difference between imparfait and passe compose?

  • French - ,

    This is essentially the difference between an action, not completed as far as you know and description and an action completed.

    Get a feeling for ~~~~ (l'imparfait) and //// (passé composé) The English is also different.
    l'imparfait (étudiais) = I was studying, I used to study and I studied (3 meanings)
    le passé composé = j'ai étudié = I did study, I have studied and I studied.

    Note that the 3rd meaning in each case "crosses over" so you need to determine whether it WAS going on or DID go on.

    Sra (aka Mme)
