3 Tips on how to use Préterito indefinido.


The Pretérito indefinido refers to:

Events, actions, facts that happened in the past and that we consider totally finished, that has arrived to its completion.

Él tuvo mucha suerte


When using Préterito Indefinido it is common to express when the action took place, defining the time with words like:

Ayer, antes de ayer, la semana pasada, hace un año, cuando tenía __ años, etc…


Another way to use the Pretérito indefinido is when it refers to a change, an action that stops another action. In this case, the action that gets interrupted works like the words we use to define the time:

Estaba durmiendo y sonó la alarma.

Ayer sonó la alarma.

Remember to use Pretérito indefinido every time you speak, because it has no substitutes.
