HAPPY THURSDAY

Hi everyone.  Another beautiful Thursday.  How are you all.  It is almost the weekend so everyone should be smiling.  Another beautiful landscape.

I am just going to review when you use the present tense.   I posted this yesterday but there is no harm in doing it again.  The present tense is used to denote:

  1. Routine – to show that this is part of what you do on a daily/weekly basis
  2. Habits- to show that this action is a habit
  3. Permanent – to show that the action is permanent e.g. Dogs bark.
  4. Fact – to show that the action is a fact of life e.g. Rain falls from above.

I hope that this makes it clearer.  However, if the action has taken place in the past then the tense becomes the past tense.  But, more of this next time.
