Passé composé vs Imparfait
 When talking about the past in French, there are two different tenses  that work together: the passé composé and the imparfait. Although  English has verb forms that appear to be exact equivalents for each of  these, they don't quite match up in the two languages, so this is an  area of difficulty for French students. The trick is to understand when,  why, and how to use each French tense. You can view the transcript and  find links to more info at
