In the skill of writing for instance, at least students have to master not only vocabulary but also grammar well. In this case, verb tenses have essentials role, because they tell readers when actions are taking place. Careful and accurate use of tenses is important to clear writing. For instance, if the verbs in a passage refer to actions occurring at past actions, then the past tense is definitely needed to be used. Based on the 2006 English Curriculum (Depdiknas: 24), the standard of competence of English for Junior High School is spoken and written by using kinds of language which suitable fluently and accurately using common utterances in the daily life.
