Introduction
English is the most widespread language in the world and is more widely spoken and written than any other language. It began as a West Germanic language that arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and spread into what was to become south-east Scotland under the influence of the Anglian medieval kingdom of Northumbria. Following the economic, political, military, scientific, cultural, and colonial influence of Great Britain and the United Kingdom from the 18th century, via the British Empire, and of the United States since the mid-20th century. Nowadays, it is important to learn English because it prepares and allows the students to accommodate in the real world. As we all know, English contains part of speech and tenses; tenses such as simple past tense, simple present tense and future tense, to allow a person to create a sentence. Parts of Speech Table
