Point de départ
You’ve learned how the passé composé can express
past actions. Now you’ll learn another past tense, the
imparfait (imperfect).

15.2-1
The imparfait can be translated several ways into English.
Americans often use would when the imperfect is required.
Je portais toujours ma robe préférée à lécole.

I would wear my favorite dress to school
I used to wear my favorite dress to school.
15.2-2
The imparfait is used to talk about actions that took
place repeatedly or habitually during an unspecified
period of time.

15.2-3
The imparfait is a simple tense, which means that it does
not require an auxiliary verb. To form the imparfait, drop
the -ons ending from the nous form of the present tense
and replace it with these endings.

15.2-4
The imparfait is used for description, often with the verb
être, which is irregular in this tense.

15.2-5
Verbs whose infinitives end in -ger add an e before all
endings of the imparfait except in the nous and vous
forms. Verbs whose infinitives end in -cer change c to ç
before all endings except in the nous and vous forms.

15.2-6
Note that the nous and vous forms of infinitives ending
in -ier contain a double i in the imparfait.
