Hi,

The writer says he is not going to talk about particular tenses before (first/in advance) he has talked generally about all the tenses.

Good morning to you Honorfield. How about using a little correct grammar?

We have lots of learners on the Forum, and your lack of using proper grammar could be very misleading to them

Thanks.
