    Ser, is one of two Spanish verbs signifying ‘to be’ and understanding how to conjugate se tornar in the preterite tense is commonly quite difficult for most students because it employs a very unpredictable pattern of conjugation.

    However , there is also Ser conjugation that need to be noted and that is certainly – not only is the preterite conjugation from ser exceptionally irregular it also shares really exact conjugation with one more verb, the Spanish verb ir, which can be the Romance language verb interpretation ‘to go’, and evidence of this will follow the actual conjugation below down with some operating examples.

    Ser – ‘to be’ (conjugated in the preterite past tense)

    yo fui – I had been

    tú fuiste – you was

    él fue – he was

    ella fue supports she is

    nosotros/as fuimos – we were

    vosotros/as fuisteis – you were

    ellos/ellas fueron – these people were

    As explained above acaecer and marchar are conjugated exactly the same in the preterite as well as only technique you can convey to whether somebody is saying ‘was’ or ‘went’ is by just how it utilized, or rather the context when the verb can be used.

    For example:

    El fue un buen macho which translates into, ‘he was a good man’.

    El va al supermercado which means, ‘he went to the supermarket’.

    While both examples begin ‘el fue’ it becomes apparently obvious from the associated with each phrase which action-word is being applied.

    In case you want them, i’ll share with you pointers regarding when you ought to use the preterite past tense. It should be used;

    to express sole past incidents that have been finished

    to express behaviours that were repeated a certain number of times

    to state an action the fact that happened within a specific timeframe

    to express an action that is part of a series of incidents

    to express the beginning or end of an actions.
