I will help you understand English verb tense!
Here’s a little lesson on how we use the present tense.
“I will help you” is written in the future tense, will, but it feels like the present tense because we use it to mean I will help you now. And we do. People help each other; yesterday, today, and tomorrow. “People help each other’” is in the present tense, but the present tense is funny because it doesn’t mean right now- that’s “I am helping you”- It means always. A philosophical present. A hopeful present. And it is true. We do help each other. We are all superheroes, everyday superheroes. Can you think of ways you help people?
