This tense is super easy, but you must ensure that you complete the grammar notes as you are watching the video.

I have also put another video at the bottom of this tutorial. This isn't a tense, so you should complete the new grammar notes to record this fabulous new aspect of grammar!

Really, they're both very straightforward, so after you've done both please revise thoroughly for an in-class test tomorrow.
