What is the importance of tenses in reading and writing skills? with examples?

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

They are important because they convey the aspect of time.  For example, if I tell you that "I went to the store", you automatically know that I'm telling you something that occurred in the past.  Conversely, if I tell you "I will go to the store" you know that I'm telling you about something that will happen in the future.
