Verb tenses (Basic)

There are three main tenses of verbs: past, present, and future.

A past tense verb indicates an action that was completed previously. Regular past tense verbs end in –ed. For example:

He jumped high in the air before falling to the ground.

Here, "jumped" is the past tense of the verb "jump".

 

A present tense verb indicates an action that is going on right now. The present tense verb is the main form of the verb; the other forms are built by adding to, deleting from, or changing the present tense. For example:

He jumps high in the air before falling to the ground.

Here, "jumps" is the present tense verb.

 

A future tense verb indicates an action that will be completed in the future. Most future tense verbs are formed by adding “will” before the verb. For example:

He will jump high in the air before falling to the ground.

Here, "will jump" is the future tense of the verb “jump”.
