Preterite, present and immediate futureThis Spanish video, in the context of a Dominican party, Cynthia uses the preterite or simple past to explain that she drank too much beer. She uses the present tense me duele to complain of a headache she currently has, and then the immediate future using ir + a + infinitive to suggest what she's already decided to do in the immediate future.
Esta tarde temprano tomé mucha cerveza. Ahora me duele la cabeza. Mas tarde voy a tomar un aspirin.
English Early this afternoon I drank alot of beer. Now, my head hurts. Later I'm going to take an aspirin.
