simple past tense in english, turkish, russian, arabic
used to …
Actually, in the phrase ‘used’ -ed is the past time of the verb. So it is also used to … as the structure is like simple past. However, since the verb denounces it as meaning, it can form a sentence in a general way without the use of frequency envelopes. In other verbs, frequency words should be used to create general style.
There is also a supplement to the general style in Turkish. The -er attachment can be added to the verb at any time and always shows the general style without using the frequency word.
Geçen sene sinemaya giderdim_ I used to go…
…her hafta sonu sinemaya gittim _ I went to… every weekend.
In Russian, there are no such elements as used to or –er. Therefore, in general style, frequency words are used.

First of all, what is continuous tenses?
In English, verbs are used as adjective verb forms.
There are two forms of adjective verbs.
1. Ongoing form of action
2. Finished form of action.
The first one is on the movement and the movement is continuing. For this, the situation of the person against the movement is in question.
Essentially say ‘He is waiting’. ‘waiting he’ or ‘waiting man’ means. or, ‘The car waiting’
The car is ….
What is …? it is red / tall / short …
The car is waiting. (waiting is participle)
The car was waiting (past)
Adjective verb is not used for continuous tense in Russian and Turkish. And verbs do not report the situation of the person. In Russian, there is a special attachment for the present. But this verb is not used in the same time as the past.
It can be used in Turkish but it is also used as an auxiliary verb and
(er-), -t, -ük finishness suffix, ‘çalışiyor -er-it-ük’, ‘çalışıyor idi (k) ‘,’ çalışıyordu ‘
The adjective verb suffix -an, -an adjective verb suffix. If -en, -an attachment is used in English and Turkish overlap.
O çalış-an’dır/ O’dur çalış-an_ He is work-ing
O çalışandı_ He was working.
in the continuous tenses, the verb takes place so participle

I am a studing student Now.
I was a studing student then (Yesterday)

Past perfect tense in english, turkish, russian, arabic
Past perfect tense
What is perffective? Perfect aspect is same in turkish and English. The verb position is participle (sıfat fiil) perfect participle. The person already has done the action at last one. May be the book hasn’t fnished. Have you ever been in London? Yes.
But, Russian perfective is not so. There is İn russian perfective two action. read and pass, not only ‘read’. He read and passed the book. The person has read and has closed the book.
Let’s start as a pre-information, for example, to go.
He’s gone… to school.‘ What do we understand from this sentence. We’re definitely sure that he’s not here right now. And at school? We don’t know this place. What we know is that Ali left. We do not know whether the school reached the news reported in the sentence. And maybe he’s still going to school. But on this side, the person, Ali, took action to start the movement. In other words, the movement has become over Ali, and Ali is now gone.
In this respect, the movement has not occurred and the situation has been completed. But the movement may not have been completed yet. The narration so far is based on Turkish and English fiction. And the finish category works in these dummies. So the person’s condition. In Russian, it works through the movements. So the movement is completed and completed. Therefore, the grammatical elements that declare that the person has completed his movement take part in the expressions.
For example; Where is Ali?
He went to school. (imperfective action) (unfinished action)
Did Ali go to school now? Yeah, he went to waste school. (perfective action) From here on, we now understand that the result of the move is over. Here in Russian, the category of completion is shaped according to all these situations.

present perfect tense
Perfect tenses; subject+have+ verb-ed3 (perfect participle) (
not past participle)
Participles dosen’t show a time. There is not a time in ‘worked3’ or ‘working’ because participles only shows status of the person in that time. These times are past, now, future or future in past.
‘worked man‘, it is status.
The man has worked (present status) (now)(this time)
The man had2 worked (past status) that time (yesterday)
so, in the perfect participle, the act has passed on the person, no important what time? only the person has done, or, hasn’t done, or, the action has passed or hasn’t passet on the person
