Monograph "Los pasados, bien, gracias"


With this monographic course, you will solve many doubts and gain confidence. The videos allow you to watch the grammar content as much as you want. And, since they are short, you can watch them while on a break at work, on the metro, etc. Moreover, after each video, you can practice the activities. 

Let me guess: Everything was alright till you heard about Pretérito Indefinido (hablé) and Pretérito Imperfecto (hablaba).

You can differentiate the forms and sometimes the use of them is quite clear, but, suddenly there is a sentence that makes you doubt:


Cuando visité a María... ??

Cuando visitaba a María... ??


When you don't have an equivalent in your language (or any of those you know) is much more complicated to understand the logic, the differences.


"Why are there so many past tenses in Spanish?"


It's what I usually hear in class.


And then...

You can communicate, and people understand what you say more or less.


You can talk without much trouble about the present or the future. The problem is the hesitation that arises when someone asks you about your last weekend in Madrid or last holidays in Portugal. 


Estuve / estaba en Oporto??


And you remember the different uses of one and the other tense. And you even remember what the teacher was wearing that day in class and the weather outside. But the doubt is:


Is it a description or an action?


Forget the lists of uses because, after that, you have the lists of exceptions. 

The theory

Probably, you learned that, to make a description in the past, you need Pretérito Imperfecto:


"Mi profesor de matemáticas era malísimo."


Is it not possible to say "fue malísimo"?


Yes, you can say "fue malísimo".


There are differences in the meaning. Therefore to thrive in the language, you should learn them.


But don't panic! We will look for the logic behind (Yes, there is logic!). We will try not to depend so much on our memory. Because, let's be clear, with so much information nowadays, our brain is a bit saturated. 


Yes, mine as well.

Hi! I'm Laura Morejón, and in a lucid moment, I thought: Why I don't help students specifically with the past tense in Spanish?

That's why I have created this monograph "Los pasados, bien, gracias" where you will go straight to the point. You will see the form and uses of each of the four past tenses in Spanish and learn the differences in the meaning of Pretérito Indefinido and Pretérito Imperfecto. Moreover, you will get plenty of activities to practice the theory.

  • Imagine speaking in Spanish about your last holiday or first job without hesitation.
  • Imagine using the past tense and understanding the logic after the different tenses. 
  • Imagine forgetting the lists of uses and exceptions in this topic.


With this course, you are not going to memorize lists of uses. For that, you can find plenty of beautiful infographics on Pinterest.


You will find the logic of the past and will see that most of the time, in Spanish, we can choose one or the other tense depending on what we want to express; that is the communicative intention. If you understand that, you will gain clarity. 


The course contains "mechanic" activities for practicing the form and a self-assessment in each module where you will write short texts: different ways of practicing for a more effective learning process.


As this is an autonomous course, I suggest you correct the assessments with an online corrector.


The course contains five modules, each dedicated to one of the past tenses. There is also one specific for explaining the contrast between "Pretérito Indefinido" y "Pretérito Imperfecto".

I recommend following the order.

Any questions? Look at the answers here:

What happens if I buy the monograph and I don't like it? Does it have a guarantee?
No, it does not have a guarantee.

I advise you to book an information session with me beforehand, or you can even buy a separate class to see how I work, but if you don't like something, don't buy the course.

I don't have plenty of time. How much do I need to dedicate to the monograph?
As this is an autonomous course, you can organize it as you prefer.

Videos are short (5-7 minutes). For the activities of each module, you will need around 8 minutes. And for the self-assessment of each module, 10-15 minutes.  

I recommend not doing more than one module weekly to settle what you learned. But if you have already learned past tenses, you can do it quicker.

It seems expensive to me.
With the course, you'll gain confidence and fluency.

Moreover, the monograph will give you a sense of clarity that will remain with you for a long time (unlike when you learn things by heart).

And until August 31st, you have a bonus session included. Don't miss the opportunity to practice all the past tenses!
