VERB TENSES
1 PRESENT
1.1 simple
1.1.1 positive

Annotations:

  • The verb 'be' is different from the other verbs in this tense. 
1.1.1.1 I am play
1.1.2 negative

Annotations:

  • the negative. It's very easy. You only add 'not'.
1.1.2.1 I do not play
1.1.3 question

Annotations:

  •  the question form of the present simple with 'be'. Firstly, here's the 'yes / no' question form:
1.1.3.1 do I play ?
1.2 continous

Annotations:

  •  We make it using thepresent simple of 'be' + verb-ing:
1.2.1 negative
1.2.1.1 I am not sleeping
1.2.2 positive
1.2.2.1 I am sleeping
1.2.3 question
1.2.3.1 am I eating chocolate ?
1.3 perfect simple
1.3.1 negative

Annotations:

  • The negative is really simple too. Just put 'not' after 'have' or 'has':
1.3.1.1 I have not eaten breakfast today
1.3.2 positive

Annotations:

  • To make the positive present perfect tense, use:'have' / 'has' + the past participleMake the past participle by adding 'ed' to regular verbs (for example, 'play' becomes 'played')There are a few verbs that change their spelling when you add 'ed' (for example, 'study' becomes 'studied')We also have some completely irregular verbs
1.3.2.1 I have played
1.3.3 question

Annotations:

  • To make a question, put 'have' or 'has' in front of the subject:
1.3.3.1 have I missed the bus?
2 PAST
2.1 continous

Annotations:

  • How can we make the past continuous? Firstly, check that you know how to make the past simple with 'be' (subject + was / were). Then just add verb-ing.
2.1.1 positive
2.1.1.1 I was sleeping
2.1.2 negative
2.1.2.1 I was not (wasn't) sleeping
2.1.3 question
2.1.3.1 Was I listening?
2.2 perfect simple

Annotations:

  • We don't use the past perfect a lot in English, but it is useful, and it sounds very good if you can use it correctly. Also, it's really easy to make - just the past simple of 'have' and the past participle.
2.2.1 positive
2.2.1.1 I had been
2.2.2 negative
2.2.2.1 I had not been
2.2.3 question
2.2.3.1 Had I come?
2.3 simple

Annotations:

  • It's similar to the present simple because it has different rules for the verb 'be', which becomes 'was' or 'were': The Past Simple with 'be' Here's how to make the positive:
2.3.1 positive
2.3.1.1 I was cold
2.3.2 negative
2.3.2.1 I was not sleepy
2.3.3 question
2.3.3.1 was I sleepy?
