give me some easy way to understand tenses???

Dear student,

Tenses are a part of grammar that indicate the time when the action of the verb takes place. Whether the action took place in past, is happening now or will happen in the future is indicated by the tense used in the sentence. For example:

I go to the park everyday. (Present tense)

I went to the park yesterday. (Past tense)

I will go to the park tomorrow. (Future tense)

Kindly go through the chapter on tense provided on our website for a detailed explanation.

Regards

 In present tense:

I read. [Simple Present]
I am reading. [Present Continuous]
I have read; [Present Perfect]
I have been reading. [Present Perfect Continuous]
 
In sentence 1, the verb shows that the action is mentioned simply, without anything being said about the completeness or incompleteness of the action.
In sentence 2, the verb shows that the action is mentioned as incomplete or continuous, that is, still going on.
In sentence 3, the verb shows that the action is mentioned as finished, complete, or perfect, at the time of speaking.
In sentence 4, the verb is present perfect continuous as the verb shows that the action is going on continuously, and not completed at this present time.
