Japanese time tenses
I wanted to know how to use a Japanese verb in different time (future, past, present).
Would you help me figure out the time of these sentences :
Google translate says it is future?? Like: I will eat??! , but Duolingo says present.
Rosetta stone says it is present. Google translate says it is present progressive??!
Google translate says this one is present like : I eat. But I am still confused :/
google translate considers this as a past tense.
Please help me in Japanese time verbs, and correct the errors of these sentences (if they're future, past ...).
Hi! In Japanese, there are two tenses: past and non-past. Non-past includes the present and future tense in English. So, if there is no context, 「私は食べる。」 can mean both I eat and I will eat. There is a verb form called progressive form that makes it into present progressive. It is「私は食べている。」(The 「ている」 makes the verb become present progressive.)
