Present Tenses/Simple Present


Recommended Posts

I am a bit confused by the concept of, 'Simple Present' when it comes to French grammar. It confuses me, because I do not understand how you would use the same tense in both current events and events in the near-future. I've heard that you can use the 'simple present tense' in English, but it sounds old-fashioned...I couldn't find any examples, though.

So that means when I am describing an event in the near future and present, I use the simple present tense? What about describing events that are far into the future? I am just having a bit of trouble understanding. Thank you in advanced.
