English has three basic tenses: Past, Present and Future. The tense of the sentence tells us when the action took place.

Present > today e.g. I paint the house.
Past > yesterday e.g. I painted the house.
Future > (tomorrow) e.g. I shall paint the house.

* Irregular verbs follow different rules.

It is further split up into: Simple, Continuous (Progressive) and Perfect (Perfect Progressive).

Verbs can be a bit tricky if you have just started, but with practice, it gets easier!

A great way to practice is to start with a PRESENT SIMPLE sentence: I play tennis.

Now, see if you can change it into the other tenses:

GenerallyAt the moment/ongoingAlready completed
PRESENTI play tennis.
