Concise Oxford Dictionary simply defines tense as the form a verb takes to show the time it happens. Tense in English is divided into three based on the universal division of time: past, present and future. The past takes care of any action from the last moment to unending past, the present is the current moment and the future is the next ‘yet to see’ moment to ‘unending tomorrow’.
In this series of lessons, we will take a very good look at the operations of tense in English language and how it is tested in our examinations. However, the lessons will deliberately avoid grey areas of grammar that stemmed from regional linguistic various. The lessons will be restricted to standard rules of grammar.
