    Default sentance structure

    Hi
    Could someone please check to see if I am identifying the correct tense & reasons for the following sentences :-

    Can you come for a drink tonight? Sorry I'm playing tennis with my sister
    I think the tense is present continuous, because it is a future arrangement


    I've been in England since last week
    Present perfect continuous - for an unfinished past action

    I am stuck on the following :- At the train station I realised I'd left the tickets at home - I have no idea at all on this one !!! I am not even sure the grammer is correct

    Correct.

    Correct.

    Fine. It's called past perfect ("I realized I had left", or "I'd left").
