4 Verb Tenses to Master English

1) Past SimpleTo express anything that happened in the past, either two weeks ago or five seconds ago.

I went to Madrid. I lived in Seattle for eight years. I woke up today at seven o’clock.

2) Present To express something habitual.

 I go to Madrid every Friday. I wear a watch every day. I wear glasses when I read.

3) Present Continuous To express something you are doing NOW! The present continuous can also express the future, both near and far.

I am going to Madrid today. We are going to Paris in August. I am wearing a blue shirt today.

These two questions have completely different meanings in English:

What do you do? Esta pregunta tiene el sentido de ¿A qué te dedicas? o ¿Qué haces todos los días?

What are you doing? ¿Qué estás haciendo? (Ahora. En este momento)

4) Future – I will go to Madrid tomorrow.

That's it! English is easy!
