About me

About me:

My name is Danielle and I am about to be a final year student of French and Spanish at Warwick University.

I spent the last twelve months on my year abroad, where I was a student at Málaga University in Spain and University of Paris West La Défense in France.

When I graduate I would like to become a teacher, which means I have a real passion for what I'm doing and I want to share my passion for languages with you too to help you to be the best that you can be!

What to expect?

I believe that a good understanding of grammar, vocabulary and sentence structure can really help to improve a language in no time at all, so before moving on to exam specific content I think that it's important to have the basics cracked so that you can improve from the bottom up! Of course, the sessions will be guided by you, your needs and weak areas, but having been through the system myself I'm here to help!

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a WebMail or book a session to meet me, I would love to meet you!

How do you form the imperfect tense in Spanish?

The imperfect tense is used in Spanish to describe something in the past or to talk about something that happened often or habitually, for example going to school every day.

It has two different types of endings, one for AR verbs and one for IR and ER verbs.

The AR endings are as follows:

Yo -aba

Tu -abas

Él/ella - aba

Nosotros - ábamos

Vosotros - abais 

Ellos/ellas - aban

To add this to the verb you take the AR off the infinitive of the verb to leave you with the stem for the imperfect tense that you can then place the endings on! e.g. hablAR (infinitive) --> habl (imperfect stem) --> yo hablABA (imperfect yo form)

The ER/IR endings are both the same and are as follows:

Yo -ía

Tu -ías

Él/ella - ía

Nosotros - íamos

Vosotros -íais

Ellos/as - ían 

To add this to the verb you take the ER off the infinitive of the verb to leave you with the stem for the imperfect tense that you can then place the endings on! e.g. comER (infinitive) --> com (imperfect stem) --> yo comÍA (imperfect yo form)

To add this to the verb you take the IR off the infinitive of the verb to leave you with the stem for the imperfect tense that you can then place the endings on! e.g. vivIR (infinitive) --> viv (imperfect stem) --> yo vivÍA (imperfect yo form)

A key thing to remember is that with languages it's impossible to cram everything you know in one go because it's a long process of building up your knowledge of vocabulary and grammar in order to give you the best chance to express yourself both in writing and orally. I recommend looking at news websites such as Le Monde to have a better knowledge of how sentences are constructed or reading more fun articles on French Buzzfeed to learn new vocabulary as you never know what may come up!

Closer to the exam, it's about knowing the subjects that may come up and knowing the key vocabulary for the topics as well as the key controversial issues and both sides of the argument. Listening to French radio or news can only ever help you!

A key thing to remember is that with languages it's impossible to cram everything you know in one go because it's a long process of building up your knowledge of vocabulary and grammar in order to give you the best chance to express yourself both in writing and orally. I recommend looking at news websites such as El País or BBC Mundo to have a better knowledge of how sentences are constructed or reading more fun articles on Spanish Buzzfeed to learn new vocabulary as you never know what may come up! There are a wealth of great resources for Spanish as much of South America is Spanish speaking as well as vast parts of the US population.
