I need some help with this question.
Thank You,

English to Spanish

The Princess used to sing.

The only way I though of writing it was (La Princess canta) and I think that is the present and not the past.

  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. When you see "used to...." it will be the Imperfect. La princesa cantaba.

  2. Now that I have more time, let me show you the English translations for different tenses.
    ella canta = she singS, she DOES sing, she IS singING = Present

    ella cantó = she sang, she DID sing = Preterit (a past tense)

    ella cantaba = she used to sing, she WAS singING = Imperfect (a past tense)

    ella cantará = she will (shall is dying out in English) sing = Future

    ella cantaría = she WOULD sing = Conditional

    ella ha cantado = she HAS sung = Present Perfect

    ella había cantado = she HAD sung = Past Perfect

    If you need any others, just let me know.
