    Grammar

    Can I use past and future in the same sentence? If it is possible, then please give some examples.

    Re: Grammar

    Yes.
    I learned that it was possible to do that when I was at school, and I will continue to do so in the future.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Yes it is.

    I liked the movie I saw last night, so I'm going to see another one by the same director this weekend.

    I've told you already and I'll probably tell you again!
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
