What is Tense?
Let’s look at tenses in a simplicity format by the timing of:-
“Past” - “Present” - “Future”
In English, the concept of tense is very important. “Tense” – a noun is defined as a form of a verb used to indicate the time and sometimes the continuation or the completeness of an action in relation to the time of speaking.
Tense is a way we use in English referring to the time of “Past” - “Present” - “Future”.
