Unit 2 - Preterit Tense - Regular Forms
Lesson 2.4 - Summary: Preterite Tense Regular Verbs
Exercises 2.4 Quiz 2.4

Let's put all three conjugations together. Practice past tense conjugations of a mix of -ar, -er, and -ir verbs.

This lesson doesn't present any new material.

Instead, the exercises and quiz will combine what you learned in the last two lessons. The questions will include all three types: -ar, -er, and -ir verbs. Just as before, you will be asked to provide the correct preterite form.

And there is one more thing...

A Subtle Change in the Exercises

In the exercises so far, the sentences have generally included only verb forms that you have already studied. That is, even in the context part of the sentence, you wouldn't see any unrecognized forms. (Exception: The irregular verbs ser and estar have appeared already because they are so common.)

In this exercise, the sentences will sometimes use forms of the imperfect tense which we will study in the next unit. Don't worry, you won't be asked any questions about that yet. Just be aware that the imperfect tense will appear in some of the sentences, so that you can begin to see how it is used.

That's right. Practice, practice, practice!

Spend plenty of time in the exercises and quiz here, until you feel really comfortable forming the regular preterite tense.
