Many English learners worry too much abouttense. If you stopped 100 native Englishspeakers in the street and asked them abouttense, one of them might give you anintelligent answer—if you were lucky. The other99 would know little about terms like "pastperfect" or "present continuous". And theywould know nothing about aspect, voice ornarration. But they can all speak fluent Englishand communicate effectively. So I will help toknow about tenses, but don't become obsessedwith them. Be like those native speakers!Speak naturally!
