Intro to introductions

Knowing whether to use the passé composé or imparfait is particularly difficult when translating certain verbs into French. Very broadly speaking, the imperfect is equivalent to was/were + ___ing, but some English verbs are not often used in this form. So when translating was, had, and liked into French, you have to think about the meaning in order to decide which tense to use.
