Present tense tells us what we are doing currently in the moment, or it tells us something we do every day. If I “run to the store,” then that means I am doing it now or I do it every day and often (habitually). We can compare the present to the past. If I went to the story yesterday, not today, then I say that I “ran to the store.” The verb changes depending on when I did something. Similarly, if I go to the store tomorrow, but I’m talking about it today, then I say I “will run to the store.” In the future tense, I have a helping word.
In present continuous, also known as present progressive, actions are happening right now, but these actions are not quite finished. If I “am eating spaghetti,” then I am not quite done eating my plate of spaghetti. In present continuous, we use a form of “to be” and a verb ending in -ing.
In past continuous, actions happened in a time before now. These actions began in the past and are still going on during the formation of the sentence. It usually refers to an incomplete action.
In future continuous, actions will be in progress at some time in the future. These are sustained actions in the future. If I say, “I will be eating spaghetti during my favorite show,” then I will be eating over a period of time in the future.
In the past, present, and future perfect tenses, the action has been completed and perfected.
In the perfect continuous tenses, an action started in the past and continues to the present. You construct these by using has/have been and the present participle (-ing verb).
For example: I had been eating spaghetti.
Verbs and their tenses help us understand when things happen around us, whether it is in the past, present, or future.
