Spanish Help Please! Tenses

posted by Chris

Hi,

I need help with Spanish homework. This is on tenses: "I have to" or "I must (Future imperative, I think)," "I will" (Future), I am (present), and "I have" (past). Please tell me if my grammar is correct in the following sentences. Thanks!

    Present Indicative = (I have to...) = Tengo que + infinitive

    Future = (I will have to...) = Tendré que + infinitive

    (Past Tense/Preterit) = (I had to...) = Tuve que + infinitive

    (Past Tense/Imperfect) = (I had to...was having to...) = Tenía que + infinitive

    (Present Perfect) = (I have had to...) = He tenido que + infinitive

    For variety, when you are tired of "tener + que + infinitive" you may use "deber + infinitive"

    As long as you know which tense you used in your examples, they are all good.
