Aren't verb tenses wonderful? No? Well, okay. Maybe not. But while they may not exactly be wonderful, they are certainly useful. After all, research tells us that studying verb tenses is a great way to learn the fundamental aspects of language. For example, take the English verb, "to be." Almost ubiquitous in our language, this verb is very simple yet very useful. That's why we start with this verb in the list of worksheets on this page - we know how useful it is to beginning learners. And learners of English as a Second Language (ESL) may find these worksheets especially helpful. But that's not to say that our worksheets are only for beginners. Even experts can learn something from them. Hey experts! Do you know the past participle form of drink? "I have drunk a lot of water today." Or what about the simple past tense form of the verb, cost? "My shoes cost $65." Yes, that's right, it doesn't change! And hey, and let's not forget about that pesky subjuncitve mood. If I were you, I would study with English for Everyone! :)
On this page you'll find our complete list of printable verb tenses worksheets. The worksheets you will find in these sections include explanations and examples of the three aspects (simple, progressive, and perfect) of the past, present, and future English tenses. On our verb tenses worksheets, practice involves filling in the blanks and rewriting sentences in the specified aspect and tense. This enables students not only to enhance their knowledge of the various verb tense forms, but also to articulate more complex actions and ideas. Also, please note that these worksheets have yet to be refined and tested in the classroom. While we believe them to be of the highest quality, minor errors may still exist. We greatly appreciate you taking time to inform us of any perceived errors by email at englishforeveryone.org@gmail.com.
