Present tense comes in four forms; Present Simple, Present Continuous, Present Perfect and Present Perfect Continuous. Each of the form differs by the different usage of tenses. Present simple tense uses auxiliary verbs such as do and do not in the sentences. For example, present simple tenses are used in habitual actions, permanent situations and facts, commentaries, and instructions. Present continuous tense (otherwise known as present progressive tense) is made with the present simple tense auxiliary verb 'to be' and present participle (verb plus -ing) of the main verb. An example of present continuous tense is 'I am learning'. However, there are verbs which is considered non progressive and it includes verbs of the senses, verbs expressing feelings and emotions, verbs of mental activity, and verbs of possession. This leads us to the next form of present tense; Present perfect tense. This sub type of present tense is often used to relate a past action with a present one. Usage of 'have' and 'has' plus its negative forms 'haven't' and 'hasn't' is often used in these type sentences i.e. I have eaten my dinner. The last form of present tense is present perfect continuous which is correlated to present perfect except this particular form of present tense have more emphasis on the action and activity rather than the completed action.
