The tense can be shown in the verb. For example,am,is, andareare always present tense, andwasandwereare always past tense. Or the tense can be shown by adding words to the verb. In English, the words that we add to the verb are "helping verbs" or "auxiliaries", likebe,have,shall,will, and so on. So we get the continuous present withis taking, the future withwill take, and so on.
