    In fact, there are only two 'real' tenses, the Present Simple and the Past Simple. The others are so-called 'aspects', but named tenses as well.

    I get up at 6 every morning. Present Simple
    She works in a hospital as a nurse. Present Simple, 3rd person singular, with '-(e)s'
    We don't play any computer games. Present Simple, negative sentence
    He doesn't read any books. Present Simple, negative sentence with 3rd person singular

    I got up at half past seven yesterday. Past Simple, irregular verb
    She worked until 11 last night. Past Simple, regular verb, with '-(e)d'
    They didn't go Mexico last year. Past Simple, negative sentence

    Cool Re: I Know there are 3 tenses .. past , Present , Future .. But

    Hi,

    Direct & simple examples:

    Present - I am speaking
    Past - I have spoken
    Future - I will speak.

    Note : I am not a teacher.
