Tenses are used to show when something happened. 


An event can have happened previously, or be happening now, or be happening in the future. 


You show the tense with the verbs that you use.


Using the correct tense in your writing is very important - it helps your reader to understand your work more clearly. 


In this activity, you will be looking at the simple past, present and future tenses.
