What you are seeing here is just a brief preview of what we will be learning in the next unit. Perfective verbs focus more on the completion of an activity than imperfective verbs. Imperfective verbs focus more on the activity itself (up till now, we’ve mostly been using imperfective verbs without knowing anything about such a distinction).

For now, don’t worry too much about the verbs in the perfective column beyond recognizing them, we will learn these in 7.4.

[1] the verb luxovat is from the brand name Elektrolux (https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolux). Such situations, where a brand name is used as a generic word, are pretty common in English, such as Xerox, kleenex, band-aid, and numerous others.
