  • The Verbs
  • The Adjectives

The powerful combination of the Imperfect, Plus-Perfect, Conditional Present and Compound Past

Inside the “Indicative Mode”, exist 2 very different worlds :

  • The world of the Discourse centered around the Present Simple (Compound Past, Present Simple and Future Simple).
  • The World of Stories centered around the Imperfect (Plus-Perfect, Imperfect, Conditional Present and Compound Past again), that I still have to learn.
