Title: Introduction of Tenses

Introduction of Tenses
What are the tenses in English?
  • In English, there are three main tenses the
    present, the past, and the future
  • The present. The present tense (e.g. I am, she

  • Continuous

  • Perfect continuous

Are tenses part of grammar?
  • In grammar, tense is a category that expresses
