  • As in speaking perfectly in English though it's not your first language? No, it's not a big deal. As I'm learning a second language myself, I'm quite impressed you know even some of two languages.

    • Perfect tense means something that hasn't happened yet. Like "by this time tomorrow, it will have rained two inches"

    • Present perfect tense, past perfect tense future perfect tense?

    • Oh! I didn't know that it was called that. Thanks for explaining :)

  • I only know how to do this in French and I didn't find it particularly useful then either.
