Using an old Quechua legend, students will practice their understanding of the preterito and imperfecto.
This activity assumes they have some prior knowledge of the language concept and is probably based suited for intermediate level and above or native speakers.
This is a good way to start off a lesson on the two past tenses or is a good way to review them.
They will read the legend of the condor looking for the uses of the pretérito and imperfecto throughout the story. After reading, they will complete some activities to reinforce their findings.
There are also some comprehension questions and a drawing activity where students recreate the story in their own words.
This is not a conjugation exercise but instead one where they determine the uses of the verbs and how they are used in the language.
