    Hey, this is great! Thanks!

  2. Pawel says:

    There is an error in hablar conjugation (hablabas instead of habló and hablabamos instead of hablamos).
    Otherwise good help, but also more irregular verbs would be useful.

      You’re talking about imperfect. The table refers to preterite.

      Caution: just noticed that the author updated his cheat sheet and thus the verb hablar is wrong now. That is not preterite conjugation.

      Not cool sharing info you are not 100% sure of.
