English Verb Tenses

Verb tenses are used to express the time when the action or state of being takes place and they can be broadly classified into 3 timelines: the present, the past and the future.

The English verb tenses can simply express the time of the action or state of being and for this we use the SIMPLE tenses, like Present Simple, Past Simple or Future Simple.

Additionally, verbs can also express other aspects of the action or state of being, such as whether the action is still in progress or it is completed at the time of speaking. For this, we use what's called the Progressive Aspect and the Perfect Aspect. You will soon find a brief explanation about these aspects on this website.

Starting with the simple tenses and continuing with the more and more difficult tenses, they are:

Present Timeline

Past Timeline

  • Past Simple
  • Past Continuous
  • Past Perfect
  • Past Perfect Continuous

Future Timeline

  • "Going to..." Future
  • Future Simple
  • Future Continuous
  • Future Perfect
  • Future Perfect Continuous
