    It does not matter you are very kind and speak english well
    . (I only say that beacuse everybody makes mistakes.)

    I made some mistakes using the right tense. Would you say one example for each one of them?
    Had - Past
    Have - Present
    Will - Future

    First, a correction: I make mistakes in tenses. Would you write an example of each?


    Sure, but I am too lazy to do it myself:

    Example:
    RUN - Imagine that you are talking with a friend about field day races.
    Present: I run today.
    Past: I ran yesterday.
    Future: I will run tomorrow.
    Present Perfect: I have run many times before.
    Past Perfect: I had run many times before.
    Future Perfect: By Friday, I will have run many times.

    WRITE
    Present: I write today.
    Past: I wrote yesterday.
    Future: I will write tomorrow.
    Present Perfect: I have written many times before.
    Past Perfect: I had written many times before.
    Future Perfect: By Friday, I will have written many times

    This one is much better, you can enter any verb and it will conjugate it for you - I hope it gets most of them right...

    No: it's the past perfect.
    I had run is correct.

    Is this correct ?

    1- I would have seen you if i went there.
    2- If i go there i will see you .

    Which one is correct?

    They both are: (although the first one is probably better rendered as "I would have seen you if I had gone there").
    The first one is talking about the past - "would have seen".
    The second is talking about the future - "will".

    Ah, no.
    "I ran" is past tense, "I had run" is past perfect.

    Hey, princelove, welcome!

    I haven't seen your post until today, because you posted it in the "General Science & Technology" section (I rarely visit this section

    Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

    ).

    I am not an English native speaker either, so I am also still learning.

    Anyway, if you want to learn English, maybe you can post your question in this Linguistic section:

    http://www.sciforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=94

    and if you want to get to know with other people, you can post your question in this section:

    http://www.sciforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=86

    so that your posts will be easier to find (in the right section).

    Also,
    حال شما چه طور؟ آیا من شما را در درک؟

    Actually the threads that come on top (that most people check first) are the Today's Posts (New Posts):

    so it's better you create your thread in the relevant subforum.

    Usually thread like this (I am new here from Afghanistan) are posted in the About the Members section.

    Nice to meet you, too. How is life in Kabul these days? Do you go to school?

    Actually since more than 15 years ago, but English is not my native language.

    Since Prince has asked us for help in learning proper English, excuse me while I correct "since more than 15 years ago" to "for more than 15 years".

    If the beginning of the time period is defined by a date or event, then we say "since."
    • Since 1995
    • Since my 50th birthday
    • Since last Christmas
    • Since the end of World War II
    • Since the government outlawed smoking in restaurants.
    • Since there have been footprints on the moon
    • Since women have been allowed to vote
    But if the time period is simply counted, then we say "for."
    • For an hour and a half
    • For two months
    • For five thousand years.
    Some constructions don't clearly fit either model and you have to study them carefully or just learn them.
    • For as long as there have been footprints on the moon
    • For the duration of the war
    • For my entire life
