He lived in jordan most of his life but moved to the United States. I am fourteen years old. I lived in San Fransisco most of my childhood. I went to San diego later and moved into Escondido.

Hi welcome to the site smile One of the things that will help you the most is to make your own translation first, and then we help you correct it.

Is your grandfather still alive? Your father? What you are trying to say would be in the present except the part about where he lived before and when he moved. Give that a try and I will do my best to help you out smile

I think all of what you are saying in English does not belong it the imperfect. It should be in the preterit and the present. The imperfect is used to mean "used to (verb)". Here's an example, I used to play basketball (Yo jugaba basketbol). I hope that helps. For further insight into this tense, explore the reference section of this websites.
