1) Word to Sentence ~ make/made/will or going to make


Use three basic forms of words to write three sentences: present, past, and future.


1) present ~ used for habits and routines

    2)past ~ used for events beginning and ending in the past

       3) future ~ used for events that have not yet happened


Note: In casual speech and writing, will and going to are often interchanged. In formal writing,

they are different. Will is used when referring to the future with certainty. Going to is used to refer to planned events.


Example 1) I try to make fun experiences with my friends.


Example 2) I made fried chicken, but it was too oily.


Example 3) I'm going to make a good impression when I meet my in-laws.
