Οι Χρόνοι των Ρημάτων
The Tenses of the Verbs (1)

Lesson 31 Part 1 - Greek Grammar

  When we speak, we don't always speak about what we are doing now
We speak about our past or our future, and many times we even describe if what we we are doing or will do, was or will be happening continuously or not. 
   This is the verbs' job. We use the verbs in a way to show us when we took the action, and for how long. We use the tenses of the verbs (Οι Χρόνοι των Ρημάτων) .

   Sounds confusing doesn't it? The next few lessons will show you that it really isn't. The tenses that we will examine are:

Table 31.1.1
TenseExplanation/Example
Present Tense - Ενεστώτας Shows us something that is happening NOW!
Example: Εγώ παίζω (I play)- I play now
Past Continuous - Παρατατικός Shows something that was happening in the PAST continuously
Example: εγώ έπαιζα (I was playing) - I was playing in the past but not for a moment, but continuously.
