Write five sentences about the role of education in successful financial planning, in which you correctly use a different verb tense in each sentence.
Mark each verb used in bold and, in parentheses, identify the specific tense used

The role of education plays a big part in financial planning (PRESENT). It is a crucial part of becoming successful with your money (PRESENT). It will help you in learning basic math skills in order to better your finances (FUTURE TENSE). The whole idea is to help you in becoming a more responsible adult (PRESENT). After Graduating, having a continuing education into college leads a way into all your future goals (FUTURE PROGRESSIVE TENSE).
VERBS ARE; play, crucial part, help, help, and continuing education.
IS EVERYTHING CORRECT?

    The role of education plays a big part in financial planning (PRESENT). OK

    It is a crucial part of becoming successful with your money (PRESENT). Present, yes.

    It will help you in learning basic math skills in order to better your finances (FUTURE TENSE). OK

    The whole idea is to help you in becoming a more responsible adult (PRESENT). Present, yes.

    After Graduating, having a continuing education into college leads a way into all your future goals (FUTURE PROGRESSIVE TENSE). No, the verb here is present -- "leads"

    If your directions say to use a different verb tense in each sentence, why are you using so many present tense forms?

  • com155 - ,

    OH! Thank you! I did not know it said that. I am having trouble understanding it. thank you! So, does that mean I have to start all over? Did I at least get all the verbs right?

  • com155 - ,

    I don't think you need to start over. Keep the first and the third sentences.

    Make the second and fourth sentences' verbs be past and present perfect tenses.
    Past = walked, spent, worked, etc.
    Present perfect = has earned, have spent, etc.

    Make the fifth one future progressive if you want -- or another tense. Future progressive would be "will be leading" or "will be spending" or "will be earning" etc.

    HOW ABOUT THIS?
    The role of education plays a big part in financial planning (PRESENT). It has been a crucial part of becoming successful with your money (PAST PREFECT TENSE). It will help you in learning basic math skills in order to better your finances (FUTURE TENSE). The whole idea will be to help you in become a more responsible adult (FUTURE PROGRESSIVE TENSE). After Graduating, having a continuing education into college leads a way into all your future goals (PRESENT PROGRESSIVE TENSE).
    VREBS ARE; plays, crucial part, help, help, and leads????

    HOW ABOUT THIS?
    The role of education plays a big part in financial planning (PRESENT). OK

    It has been a crucial part of becoming successful with your money (PAST PREFECT TENSE). No, which tense does the helping verb "has" indicate?

    It will help you in learning basic math skills in order to better your finances (FUTURE TENSE). OK

    The whole idea will be to help you in become a more responsible adult (FUTURE PROGRESSIVE TENSE). No, there's no action verb here to be "progressing"! See below.

    After graduating, having a continuing education into college leads a way into all your future goals (PRESENT PROGRESSIVE TENSE). This verb "leads" is present, not any kind of progressive.

    VERBS ARE; plays, has been, will help, will be, and leads.

    OK! I will try going over the site you sent me and try again.. Thanks a lot!

  • com155 - ,

    Be sure you study the site that Ms. Sue gave you, too. Before you can be confident about verb tenses, you MUST make sure you are identifying the verbs accurately.

  • com155 - ,

    Okay! I hope this is it.
    The role of education plays a big part in financial planning (PRESENT). It has worked a crucial part of becoming successful with your money (PAST). It will help you in learning basic math skills in order to better your finances (FUTURE TENSE). The whole idea has earned help in become a more responsible adult (PRESENT PROGRESSIVE TENSE). After Graduating, having a continuing education into college will be leading a way into all your future goals (FUTURE PROGRESSIVE TENSE).
    VERBS ARE; plays, has worked, will help, earned, and leading???

  • com155 - ,

    The role of education plays a big part in financial planning (PRESENT). OK

    It has worked a crucial part of becoming successful with your money (PAST). The verb is "has worked" and it's present perfect; the helping verb "has" tells you the tense.

    It will help you in learning basic math skills in order to better your finances (FUTURE TENSE). OK

    The whole idea has earned help in become a more responsible adult (PRESENT PROGRESSIVE TENSE). The verb is "has earned," and this, too, is present perfect.

    After Graduating, having a continuing education into college will be leading a way into all your future goals (FUTURE PROGRESSIVE TENSE). This sentence doesn't make sense. You have used "having a continuing education into college" (which is extremely awkward and doesn't make much sense in itself) as your subject. I don't understand how that subject "will be leading" anything. If you want to make this sentence have a future progressive tense, then scrap what you have written and start over with this one. Use one of the verbs I have given you for this tense in my second post above.

    The role of education plays a big part in financial planning (PRESENT). It has worked a crucial part of becoming successful with your money (PRESENT PERFECT TENSE). It will help you in learning basic math skills in order to better your finances (FUTURE TENSE). The whole idea is earning help in becoming a more responsible adult (PRESENT PROGRESSIVE TENSE). This will have leaded a way into all your future goals (FUTURE PERFECT TENSE).
    VERBS: plays, has worked, will help, is earning, and will have leaded

  • com155 - ,

    It has worked a crucial part of becoming successful with your money (PRESENT PERFECT TENSE).
    This doesn't make sense. Read it aloud, and you'll see.

    The whole idea is earning help in becoming a more responsible adult (PRESENT PROGRESSIVE TENSE).
    This doesn't make sense. Read it aloud, and you'll see.

    This will have leaded a way into all your future goals (FUTURE PERFECT TENSE).
    This doesn't make sense. Read it aloud, and you'll see. I think you mean "led" instead of "leaded" (which is not a word!).

    The others are fine.

  • com155 - ,

    ... and in that last sentence -- use "the way" instead of "a way"

  • com155 - ,

    ok I got it now.. thank you very much!!

  • com155 - ,

    You're welcome! =)
