Problems when selecting a verb tense?


Basically, when you want to build a sentence in English you just have to think: A)Is it present, past, or future?  B) Is it simple, continuous, or perfect?  C) Is it affirmative, negative or, interrogative?  Once you have done that, just apply the form you have chosen.  In case your sentence is a conditional one, just use the forms for the future and change the auxiliary verb WILL for the auiliary WOULD
