  • Here are the six different types of verb tense from the purdue owl website
    Simple Present: They walk

    Present Perfect: They have walked

    Simple Past: They walked

    Past Perfect: They had walked

    Future: They will walk

    Future Perfect: They will have walked

  • What kind of class is this? Grammar, education, or financial planning?
    They want you to write 5 sentences.
    About how education can help a person plan finances successfully.
    Each sentence needs to use a different verb tense: Future, present, past, conditional ("would" like verbs), imperfect (future or past or even conditional (would have had).
    ex. The role of education in successful fin. planning has been (past imperfect (I think) ) sorely lacking. Many older people today would have had (conditonal?) more money if they had been taught these skills early in life. Today's students take (present) these courses routinely. This will (future) help to make them more financially secure when they are older.

    Does this make sense? I'm not always good on naming the complicated tenses in english, but the grammar is correct.

  • You have to write a different verb tense for each sentence.  For instance sentence one will be in past tense, and two will be present and three will be future etc.etc.

  • Basically it is referring to the past, present and future. Your other 2 verbs would come into play when planning, changing or evaluating at any point during this time.

  • The role of education in successful financial planning comes into play with any occupation or career you choose. This might be looking at your expected income/finances in your career and even while you are going to school to reach your goals. Once you reach your educational goals and enter into the field you are working on you also have financial planning coming into play in regards to your starting income and where you want to be.
