    Help! Need explaining!

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and I would like to know something, could someone explain to me the tenses? Like past perfect, simple perfect, etc...? In the most simple way possible. I know its a lot to ask but I really do need some understanding! Thanks. :)

    Re: Help! Need explaining!

    Welcome to the forum, Sammo,

    We like to help when we can, but I am afraid that is far too big a topic to deal with in one thread. If you want to know why a particular tense is used in a sentence or two, we can explain, but we can't write a grammar of the English tense system for you.
