1) Saying where you went and what you did: the preterit of regular verbs, ir and ser
Use the preterit to say what someone did or what happened in the past. The nosotros form of ar and
ir verbs look very similar to the present tense. The nosotros form of er verbs has I instead of e in the
end of the preterit conjugations.
Bailar
Yo- baile Nosotros- bailamos
Tu- bailaste Vosotros - bailasteis
El- bailo Ellos – bailaron
Comer
Yo comi Nosotros - comimos
comiste Vosotros - comisteis
El- comió Ellos – comieron
Example:
Question: Ya comieron ustedes? Did you guys already eat?
Answer: Sí, comimos en el restaurante? Yes, we at at the restaurant.
Explanation: The question is asking did you guys already eat. Therefore “comer” must be in the
preterit form of ellos or ellas. The responder answered, stating “ yes, we already ate at a restaurant”.
This means that the responder is including himself with other people when saying “comimos”.
Therefore, “comer” must be in the preterit form of nosotros.
