Da bambina imparai molte poesie a memoria.

[details=“English Translation”]As a child I learned lots of poems by heart.[/details] I was taught that a phrase like “Da bambina” dictated the use of the imperfect tense because it described an action that took place multiple time in the past. So the verb here would be “imparavo,” not “imparai.” Are other tenses acceptable or is this sentence incorrect?


“As a child I would learn lots of poems” fits imparai but yes, I would have put “imparava”.
