New Tenses (day 24)

The past progressive, or, el pasado progresivo.  This tense changes the present progressive to the past.  For example, If i said i am talking, esta hablando, that would be the present.  If i wanted to say i was talking, it would be, estaba hablando.  Learning this tense allowed me to build upon my prior knowledge of a tense.  This is a skill that can easily aid me if i ever find myself in a country where i need to learn the native language.  Building upon proir knowledge is very important and i am very happy i was able to do this today.
