Comparison of Tenses between Latin and English

April 15, 2018 Christopher H

A handout for one of my students explaining Tense, Time and Aspect in Latin and English and comparing the tense structures of the two languages.

Created for one of my students who wanted to know how the six Latin tenses (present, imperfect, perfect, future, future perfect and pluperfect) correspond to English's much wider range of tenses (twelve in all).

The content is a little tricky and is not on any school exam syllabus, but it should be interesting for students from GCSE level up who want to understand a bit more about how the Latin language works.

PDF attached.
