Sometimes we combine parts of a sentence that are in different tenses, for example, one part may be in the present tense and the other part may be in the future tense.

As a general rule, the verb tense you are using should be consistent throughout your sentence and your paragraph. Consider an example:

The sentence

“We had eaten dinner, and then we talked”

should be written as

“We ate dinner, and then we talked”
