Simple Dialogues and Expressing Present, Past and Future Actions


Imagine we’re time travelers, discussing different moments in the past, present, and future! ⏳🗣️ Today, we’ll explore how to have simple dialogues that cover a range of actions and timelines. Just like crafting a narrative, your conversations will take your listeners on a journey through time and experiences. Ready to become a skilled conversationalist across time? Let’s embark on this linguistic journey!

Present Action Dialogues:

Present dialogue

Imagine you’re having a conversation about what’s happening right now:

Person A: “What are you doing?”

Person B: “I’m reading a book.”

Person A: ” Can I join you?”

Person B: ” Yes, please” Can you imagine how the conversation was flowing between Person A and person B? That’s what simple present dialogue looks like.

Now, let’s proceed to dialogue pertaining to past actions.

Past Action Dialogues:

Past dialogue

Imagine talking about something that already happened. That is exactly what past action is all about. Let’s see some examples:

Person A: “Did you watch the movie?”

Person B: “Yes, I watched it yesterday.”

Do you notice person B using watches while responding to person A? It’s because the event has already occurred in the past.

Future Action Dialogues:

Future Action Dialogues

Now, let’s discuss upcoming activities:

Person A: “What will you do tomorrow?”

Person B: “I will visit the museum.”

Combining Actions:

You can also mix different tenses in a dialogue:

Person A: “What did you do today?”

Person B: “I went to the park and played soccer.”

In today’s class, we explored the art of engaging in conversations that span different timeframes. We learned how to create dialogues involving actions happening in the present, actions that occurred in the past, and actions that will take place in the future. By using the appropriate tenses, we crafted dynamic conversations that transported our listeners through time and experiences.


Why is it important to use the correct tense when discussing different times? Can you think of a dialogue where someone talks about all three tenses?

Weekend Assignment:

Over the weekend, you must create dialogues with friends or family that involve actions in the past, present, and future. It’s like weaving a time-travel story together!

We have come to the end of today’s class. I hope you enjoyed the class!
