Transcript of TIMES VERBAL
English tenses express the time in which an action (verb) is made. Determine if the action was already completed (past), he is doing (this) or is to be performed (future).
Present progressive or continuous
It is used for events that are happening in or around this particular moment in time, or to indicate that something is temporary, or to talk about situations that are changing, and also to talk about plans in the future, this tense expresses actions of the present but with nuances that differentiate it from the simple present.
Characteristic of the present continuous
He is constructed using the verb TO BE as auxiliary in all its forms (affirmative, negative and questioning), and by the verb gerund, i.e. by adding - ING to its root.
The past progressive is used for events that were occurring in or around a particular time in the past, to indicate that something was temporary or to talk about situations that were changing.
This tense is formed with the past of the verb BE more the ING gerund of the verb that you want to combine. Indicates an action in development in the past, i.e., we use the past continuous or progressive to express that someone was doing something at some point and that the action had begun earlier but had not completed.
FORMULA OF THE CONTINUOUS PAST
subject + was / were + 1 > ing
The future Simple is a tense is used to describe actions that they will develop in the future without the need to clarify in that time there will be. Its equivalent in the Spanish language is imperfect future.
