In English, there are three basic tenses: present, past, and future. Each has a perfect form, indicating completed action; each has a progressive form, indicating ongoing action; and each has a perfect progressive form, indicating ongoing action that will be completed at some definite time.
Principal Verb Tenses
Simple present- She works hard
Present continuous- I am running
Simple past- I studied a lot.
Past continuous- I was singing
Principal Verb Tenses
Future going to- I am going to hit you
Future will- I won´t help you
Present perfect- I have changed myself
Past perfect- I had swam.
