We already know how to form the passé composé, which is the most commonly used tense to refer to past actions. Today, we introduce another past tense: the imparfait. The imparfait (imperfect tense in English) is a descriptive past tense indicating an ongoing state of being or a habitual action in the past. In English, it is often translated as “was” or “was vb+ing”. Because the imparfait is used to describe what is ongoing in the past, the following adverbs are commonly associated with it :

tous les jours every day chaque jour each day
tous les matins every morning chaque matin each morning
tous les mois every month chaque mois each month
tous les ans every year chaque année each year
