About This Class

Welcome to the second of my German past tense courses!

In this course we will look at the imperfect tense and the pluperfect tense.

Both require a sound knowledge of German. 

If you have only just started to learn German, then this course will not be for you, but save it for later. Then, as soon as you are ready to learn about the past tenses in German, you can watch the videos to help you along.

If you are an intermediate or advanced student, then this class is for you.

In this class you will learn how the imperfect tense is formed. You hardly need the imperfect tense for speaking in German (for that you'll need the perfect tense, which I have covered in my German grammar - the past tense #1 course), but you do need  it for reading books in German which have stories in the past tense.

You will also learn about the pluperfect tense, which again you do not cover in textbooks until after you have mastered the perfect and imperfect tense.

At the end of the class you will have a better understanding of German verbs in the imperfect tense which will make life a lot easier when you want to read a German children's book or even a novel.
