About me

J’ai travaillé dans des centrales nucléaires et hydroélectriques. J'apprends le français de manière autodidacte depuis presque trois ans. J'habite à Las Vegas.

I also have a private blog filled with my French study material. You must request permission to access it. I check for requests every few days.

Proofreading French
http://french.about.com/od/mistakes/a/proofreading-and-editing.htm

One day I sat down and put together a PDF to show someone how an English mind navigates verb tenses. It is a compilation of several English language websites. I put the PDF on my blog.

https://duolinguist.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/english-verb-tenses.pdf

Maybe it will help you. The "SUM" tab takes you to the "summation" overview of the ways you can use a verb. There is the past, present and future...but most people don't realize that each time period is dependent on the action. Is the action simple, continuous, perfect or perfect continuous? The order that the action occurred and whether the action completed in a time-frame, dictates the verb tense to use.

Some have put the PDF on their desktop and since it has embedded links, it allows you to jump through time and action type, to land on the verb tense to use.
