Can anyone explain me the difference between "walks," "walked," and "will walk"?


Martha loves exercising so she walks/walked/will walk everywhere she goes.

Those are three different tenses.

walks (third person singular present tense; regular action or habit)
She walks everyday.

walked (past tense; completed action on a specific time)
She walked yesterday.

will walk (future tense; planned stuff to do in the future)
She will walk within two days.

  • @Usernew, I like the style of my given answer, being in the whole quote. Thanks for the edit but I prefer my style. – Alejandro Dec 5 '15 at 15:53

    A consideration about the format as a "whole quote" is that it makes one wonder if you are simply copying and pasting from another source. If so, it is standard and best practice to link to the source. If not, it gives the impression that you are. – user20792 Dec 5 '15 at 15:59

walks - present simple tense (3rd person singular)

will walk - used to refer to future time (often called the future tense)

walked - past simple tense (it's not grammatical in your sentence, since Martha loves exercising is in the present tense.)

For more information, I highly suggest you read a basic grammar site about verb tenses. You can start here on this page at the English Club.
