Even though I've read and practiced a lot with them, I still can distinguish which is which, why in this story "Je voulais les garder" but not "J'ai voulu les garder". Please help me!
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
Bonjour Thanh Tân,
Here, the person is expressing a past opinion (vouloir = to want -> verb of opinion/desire) and therefore the verb will be in L'Imparfait in this context.
See here: Describing and expressing opinions with the imperfect tense in French (L'Imparfait)
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
