Chapter 20: Modal verbs (Auxiliaries)

  20.1.4 Simple tenses
Simple tenses (meaning the ones that are not compound tenses) are used the same way as in English. The modal verb is conjugated (put into the right tense) and the full verb is appended in infinitive (unchanged) form.

  Examples:

Él quería hacerlo. = He wanted to do it.
Nosotros podíamos comerlo. = We were able to eat it.
Vosotros podíais nadar. = You were able to swim.
