I have been trying to use what I have learned or have at least read about. Which of the following is incorrect? 1>bailo I dance (long term event) 2>Estoy bailando I am dancing (a right now event) 3>Tengo que bailar I have to dance 4>Tenido que bailar I had to dance (había que bailar?) 5>Yo bailé I danced (completed action) 6>Yo bailaba I was dancing (may still be in progress) 7>Estuve bailando I was dancing... (use of estuve implies completed action) 8>Estaba bailando I was dancing... (use of estaba implies possible continuing action) 9>He bailado I have danced 10>Yo había bailado I had danced 11>He estado bailando I have been dancing 12>He había estado bailando I had been dancing 12>Bailaré I will dance 13>Estaré bailando... I will be dancing... 14>Estaré bailando el próximo año I will be dancing next year 15>Bailaría I would dance 16>Yo estaría bailando I would be dancing

Hola Will! Very good!. Muy bien, amigo. I only have 2 observations, the rest is SUPER BIEN!. 4) He tenido que bailar. (remember that 'he' derives from haber, so you got the idea, which is good, so just add "he"). 12) The 'he' here is repetitive with the 'había' that follows. Just keep it like this : Había estado bailando. There you go!. Ahora, bailemos con alegría! Saludos desde Tijuana, Baja California, México.
