“I used to be afraid to talk in English and now I’m not afraid because I know when I should apply present, past and future. Three days ago I spoke to my supervisor about a safety problem. That conversation had present, past and future. You know what he said to me? ‘Mr. Cesar, I never knew you were speaking English like that.’”
