    Tense Problem

    Dear Teachers

    There are 12 tenses in English language, ie Present simple etc.

    May I know to which tense the followoing sentences belong?

    1) Anne is a teacher.
    2) Peter is angry.
    3) It is a very good idea.

    Kind Regards

    Re: Tense Problem

    Dear bhasahab

    Thank you very much indeed for yor reply.

    The following usages of Preset simple, I am already aware of:

    -to talk about our daily routines and habits etc.
    -to talk about facts which are always true.
    -to talk about time tabled future.

    Thus, may I know to which usage the sentenses in my thread belong

    Kind regards
    Udara
