Past tense – Presens Perfektum

Basic grammar - Past tense

Last week we learnt about the Preteritum.

In Grammar Exercises you’ll find useful quizzes to check your understanding of the topic.

And under Downloads you have a comprehensive list of the most used Irregular verbs together with the verb summary and time preposition list from last week.
