The imperfecto (yo hablaba) translates to the English imperfect (I was talking) while the pretérito (yo hablé) literally translates to the English simple past (I talked) but can also be translated as the English present perfect (I have talked) or the emphatic past (I did talk). It is extremely important to understand the distinctions between pretérito and imperfecto in order to use them correctly and thus express past events accurately.
Pretérito vs imperfecto
