Proper tense use is the keystone to good English, however when speaking this extremely difficult to do. Even the best students occasionally forget the ‘s’ in third person singular of the present simple. Consequently you need to learn the tenses as you would your times tables, it must be an automatic response not something you have to think about. To achieve this a great deal of study is necessary.

In this section you will find all the tenses in English language with explanations, videos and exercises. All the videos in this series have been listed on the right hand side of this page. When clicked it will take you to explanations, videos and exercises on that subject.

The English language defines tenses through use of auxiliaries. Do/does for present simple, am/are/is for present continuous, will for future, would for conditional and so on… Being able to use these correctly without hesitation should be one of your objectives. Furthermore good use of tenses requires the learning of the irregular verbs, an additional difficulty.

Hi in this section you will find classes and videos that will teach you how to make and use the tenses in English. There are a large number of tenses and good tense use is an essential part of any learning programme. You must be able to use your tenses well to sound good. For learners or beginners the first four tenses you need to master are the present simple, the present continuous, the past simple and the past continuous. As you progress you need to be able to learn how to use the present perfect simple and the present perfect continuous, as well as the future with will, going to and a future using the present continuous. As you advance further you need to master conditionals with would and progressive conditionals. I would be doing, OK? You also need to add to this past perfects. I had been waiting for an hour. You also then will progress to conditional and,,, conditionals and subjunctives. So from the first… from the zero, the first conditional to the second and third.
