What is the Present Tense?

Cozy Grammar with Marie and Thomas

In the Basic Cozy Grammar Course, Marie gives a simple introduction to tenses.

Tense is simply a change in the form of a verb to show whether the time being discussed is the past, present, or future.

Here's a peek at her lesson on the present tense!

If you're currently considering our Complete Curriculum, here's what the Intermediate Cozy Grammar Course Level One offers you:

  • The key to learning the language of grammar and how it can reveal how much you already know about words.
  • The concept of inflection and how it adds both flexibility and precision to the way you describe people, places, things, and events.
  • The secret life of verbs and how you can use them to convey different moods.
  • A bonus set of tips for acing the language section of educational exams so you can continue opening the doors to your chosen areas of intellectual and professional exploration.

Here's a still from Lesson 8 with an example of a noun used as a subjective complement. The sentence is a quote from the writer Maya Angelou.

Music was [copula verb] my refuge [noun as complement].

I hope this finds you and your family healthy and happy.
