We need to use present simple
a lot in english,so it's really
important to undertand this
Affirmative: I am
Negative:I am not
Interrogative: am I?
The present continuos tense in
english is really easy to make and is
the same for all verbs: we make it
using the present continuos of 'be'
Affirmative: I am sleeping
Negative: I am not sleeping
Interrogative: am I eating
It's similar to the present simple because it has different
rules for the verb 'be', which becomes 'was' or 'were'.
Affirmative: I was cold
Negative: I was not sleepy
Interrogative: was I sleepy?
How can we make the past continuos?.Firstly,check that
you know how to makethe past simple with
'be'(subject+was/were).Then just add verb-ing.
Affirmative:I was sleeping
Negative: I was not sleeping
Interrogative: was I listening?
The simple future tense is very easy to make and is very useful.
Affirmative: I will meet him later
Negative: I will not go
Interrogative: will I go?
Present perfect simple
To make the positive present perfect tense,use:
'have'/'has' + the past participle.Make the past
participle by adding 'ed' to regular verbs there are a
fwe verbs that change their spelling when you add
'ed'.We also have some completely irregular verbs.
Affirmative: I've played
Negative: I haven't eaten
Interrogative: Have I missed the bus?

How good are you at the present perfect continuos tense?.It's not a
very common tense, and often it's not taught in classes,but we do use
it sometimes and it's very good to know how to make it, and to
recognise it when other people use it.
