Pluscuamperfecto de Indicativo

¡Hola a todos!


This week I’m talking about Spanish tenses again, this time about pluscuamperfecto.


Firstly, I’m going to tell you how to use this tense. Basically, we use it when talking about finished past actions that are previous to another past moment. In other words, some students like to say “it’s the past of the past”.

Cuando yo llegué, Pedro ya se había ido. (Es decir, primero Pedro se va, después llego yo)

Ya había comido antes de venir. (Primero como, luego vengo)


Now we know when to use it, let’s see how to form it. Let’s start with the form for the regular verbs:

But, how about the irregular verbs? Well, in this chart you can see the first person of the main irregular verbs (but they’re not all!). If you want to get the complete chart, you can have it here together with the other past tenses in Spanish.

This is all for today. In case you missed the posts about Pretérito Imperfecto, Pretérito Indefinido and Pretérito Perfecto, you can read them following the links.

I hope that you liked it and that it’s been crystal clear. All week long you will find some pictures on my Instagram and Facebook profiles to review this, so if you don’t follow me yet, follow me now!

If you have any question about this, don’t hesitate to ask me. Remember that you can study Spanish online with me, you can ask for a 30 minutes free trial lesson, where we will get to know each other and start your Spanish adventure!

Also, if you like my job and you want to support me so I can keep sharing all this with you, kindly have a look to my Patreon page here.

¡Hasta la próxima!
