10 # PRESENT TENSES (formele timpului prezent) 1. the two present tenses (cele două forme de prezent): Most English verbs have two present tenses. (Cele mai multe verbe englezeşti au două forme de prezent.) Forms like I wait, she thinks, are called simple present or present simple ; forms like I am waiting or she s thinking are called present progressive or present continuous. (Forme ca I wait = eu aştept, she thinks = ea crede, sunt numite prezent simplu ; forme ca I am waiting = eu aştept acum, sau she s thinking = ea se gândeşte, sunt numite prezent progresiv, sau prezent continuu.) Modal verbs like can or must do not have progressive forms, and some other verbs such as know or contain are rarely used in progressive forms. (Verbe modale ca can = a putea, sau must = a trebui nu au forme de continuu, iar alte câteva verbe ca know = a şti, a cunoaşte, sau contain = a conţine sunr rar utilizate la forme de continuu). The two present tenses are used to refer to several different kinds of time. (Cele două forme de prezent sunt folosite pentru a se referi la câteva tipuri diferite de timp). 2. General time: simple present (timpul general: prezentul simplu). When we talk about permanent situations, or about things that happen regularly or all the time (not just around now), we usually use the simple present. (Când vorbim despre situaţii permanente, sau despre lucruri care se întâmplă în mod regulat sau tot timpul [nu în momentul vorbirii], de obicei utilizăm prezentul simplu). My parents live near Dover. ( Părinţii mei locuiesc lângă Dover) I go to London about three times a week. ( Merg la Londra cam de trei ori/săpt) Water freezes at 0 0 Celsius. (Apa îngheaţă la zero grade Celsius) 3. around now: present progressive (acum: prezentul continuu): When we talk about temporary continuing actions and events that are going on around now, we usually use a present progressive tense (când vorbim despre acţiuni temporare în desfăşurare şi evenimente care se întâmplă acum, folosim de obicei timpul prezent progresiv/continuu). What are you doing? (Ce faci acum?) I m reading (Acum citesc) I m going to a lot of parties these days. (Mă duc la o mulţime de petreceri zilele astea) 4. series of events: simple present (serii de evenimente: prezentul simplu): when we talk about series of actions and events that are completed as we speak, we usually use simple present tenses. (când vorbim despre serii de acţiuni sau evenimente care sunt terminate în momentul vorbirii, de obicei folosim prezentul simplu) Watch carefully. First I take a bowl and break two eggs into it. Next. ( Uită-te atent. Întâi iau un castron şi sparg două ouă în el. Apoi.) Taylor shoots and it s a goal! (Taylor trage şi e gol!/ în poartă) 5. future time (timpul viitor): in subordinate clauses, we often use present tenses to refer to the future. (în propoziţiile subordonate, folosim adesea prezentul pentru a ne referi la viitor). I ll go wherever you go. (Voi merge oriunde mergi/vei merge şi tu). Come and see us next week if you re passing through London. 10

11 ( Vino să ne vezi săptămâna viitoare daca treci/o să treci prin Londra) # THE SIMPLE PRESENT TENSE (prezentul simplu) 1. general time (timpul general): we often use the simple present to talk about permanent situations, or about things that happen regularly, repeatedly or all the time. (folosim adesea prezentul simplu pentru a vorbi despre situaţii permanente, sau despre lucruri care se întâmplă de regulă, în mod repetat, sau tot timpul). What do frogs eat? (Ce mănâncă broaştele?) (NOT: What are frogs eating?) Water boils at Celsius. (Apa fierbe la 100 grade Celsius) (NOT: Water is boiling at Celsius) I play tennis every Wednesday. (Joc tennis in fiecare miercuri) Alice works for an insurance company. ( Alice lucrează pentru o companie de asigurări). 2. series of events (serii de evenimente): when we talk about completed actions and events that happen as we speak or write, we usually use the simple present. (când vorbim despre acţiuni terminate şi evenimente care se întâmplă când vorbim şi scriem, de obicei folosim prezentul simplu). This happens, for example, in demonstrations and commentaries. (Aceasta se întâmplă, de exemplu, în demonstraţii şi comentarii) First I take a bowl and break two eggs into it. Next. ( Întâi iau un castron şi sparg două ouă în el. Apoi.) (NOT: First I am taking a boal) Lydiard passes to Taylor. Taylor to Morrison, Morrison back to Taylor..and Taylor shoots and it s a goal! (Lydiard pasează lui Taylor. Taylor lui Morrison, Morrison înapoi la Taylor.şi Taylor trage şi gol!) 3. here comes..(iată că vine.): Note the structures here comes.and there goes.(observaţi structurile here comes = iată că vine, şi there goes = s-a dus ) Here comes your husband. (Iată-l [că vine] pe soţul tău) (NOT: here is coming.) There goes our bus we ll have to wait for the next one. (S-a dus autobuzul nostru va trebui să-l aşteptăm pe următorul). 4. promises (promisiuni): sometimes we do things by saying special words (promising, swearing). (Uneori facem lucruri spunând cuvinte speciale [promisiuni, jurăminte] We usually use the simple present in these cases. (de obicei folosim prezentul simplu în astfel de cazuri): I promise never to smoke again. (NOT: I m promising) (Promit să nu mai fumez niciodată) I swear that I will tell the truth. (Jur că voi spune adevărul) I agree. (NOT: I am agreeing) (Sunt de accord) He denies the charge.

12 progressive (less formal). (unele construcţii fixe care sunt folosite în scrisori pot fi exprimate sau prin prezentul simplu [mai formal], sau prin prezentul continuu [mai puţin formal]) We write to advise you..(scriem pentru a vă sfătui.) (Less formal: We are writing to let you know.) (mai puţin formal) I enclose my cheque for $200. (Anexez în plic cecul meu de $200) (Less formal: I am enclosing.) I look forward to hearing from you. (Abia aştept să aud veşti despre tine) (Less formal: I m looking forward to hearing from you) 6. instructions (indicaţii): the simple present is often used when we ask for and give directions and instructions.

Mergi drept spre semafor, apoi o iei la stânga ) 7. stories (poveşti): the simple present is common in informal narrative and in summaries of plays, stories, etc. (prezentul simplu este obişnuit în povestirile familiare şi în rezumatele de la piese de teatru, poveşti, etc). In Act I, Hamlet meets the ghost of his father. ( În Actul I, Hamlet întâlneşte fantoma tatălui său). 8. temporary situations: non-progressive verbs (situaţii temporare: verbe non-progresive): we do not usually use the simple present to talk about temporary situations or actions that are only going on around the present. (de obicei nu folosim prezentul simplu pentru a vorbi despre situaţii temporare sau acţiuni care au loc doar la momentul vorbirii). The kettle s boiling shall I make tea? (NOT: The kettle boils ) (Ceainicul fierbe să fac ceaiul?) However, the simple present is used with verbs that cannot normally be used in progressive forms.

(NOT: I m liking) (Îmi place foarte mult vinul acesta) I believe you. (NOT: I m believing you).

We re going to the theatre this evening. (Vom merge la teatru astă-seară) (NOT: We go to the theatre this evening). There s the doorbell. I ll get it. (Sună la uşă. Deschid/ o să deschid eu) (NOT: I get it) 12

13 However, the simple present is used to refer to future events which are timetabled. (Totuşi, prezentul simplu este folosit pentru a se referi la evenimente viitoare care sunt programate) His train arrives at (Trenul lui ajunge la 11.46) I start my new job tomorrow. ( Încep noul serviciu mâine) And the simple present is often used instead of will in subordinate clauses that refer to the future. (şi prezentul simplu este adesea folosit în loc de will.. [viitor] în propoziţii subordonate care se referă la viitor) I kill anybody who touches my possessions. (NOT: who will touch) (Ucid pe oricine se (va) atinge de bunurile mele) I ll phone you when I get home. (Not: when I ll get home) (O să te sun când [o să] ajung acasă) Note also the use of the simple present in suggestions with Why don t you..?(observaţi de asemenea utilizarea prezentului simplu în sugestii cu why don t you = de ce nu.?) Why don t you take a day off tomorrow? (De ce nu iţi iei zi liberă mâine?) 10. I hear (aud): the simple prezent is used with a perfect or past meaning in introductory expressions like I hear, I see, I gather, I understand (prezentul simplu este folosit cu sens de perfect sau de trecut în expresii introductive de genul aud/am auzit, văd/am văzut, deduc, bănuiesc, înţeleg.)

(verbele care se referă la senzaţii fizice [ a simţi, a răni/ a durea, a durea ] pot deseori fi utilizate la timpuri simple sau continue făra prea mare diferenţă de sens). How do you feel? OR How are you feeling? (Cum te simţi?) My head aches. OR My head is aching. (Mă doare capul) # NON-PROGRESSIVE VERBS (verbe care nu se folosesc la forma de continuu) 1. verbs not used in progressive forms (verbe care nu se folosesc la forme de continuu): some verbs are never or hardly ever used in progressive forms (unele verbe nu sunt niciodată utilizate, sau sunt foarte rar utilizate la forma de continuu). I like this music. (Îmi place muzica asta) (NOT: I m liking this music) I rang her up because I needed to talk. (Am sunat-o pentru că simţeam nevoia să vorbesc) (NOT: because I was needing to talk) Some other verbs are not used in progressive forms when they have certain meanings. (alte verbe nu sunt folosite la forma de continuu când au anumite sensuri). Compare (comparaţi): I m seeing the doctor at ten o clock. (Mă duc /am programare la doctor la ora 10) I see what you mean. (Înţeleg ce vrei să spui) Many of these non-progressive verbs refer to states rather than actions. (multe dintre aceste verbe se referă la stări mai degrabă decât la acţiuni). Some refer to mental states (know, think, believe); some others refer to the use of the senses (smell, taste). (unele se referă la stări mentale ( a şti, a gândi, a crede ); altele se referă la folosirea simţurilor ( a mirosi, a gusta ) 2. common non-progressive verbs (verbe non-progresive obişnuite): here is a list of some common verbs which are not often used in progressive forms (or which are not used in progressive forms with certain meaning). (iată o listă cu unele verbe obişnuite care sunt rar utlizate la forma de continuu [sau nu sunt utilizate la forma de continuu cu anumite sensuri]. Mental and emotional states (stări mentale şi emoţionale) Believe (a crede) love (a iubi) see ( a înţelege) Doubt (a se îndoi) hate ( a urî) suppose (a presupune) Feel ( a avea o părere) prefer ( a prefera) think (a avea o părere) 15

(= I feel fine Mă simt bine) I feel we shouldn t do it. (NOT: I m feeling we shouldn t do it) (Simt/cred că n-ar trebui să facem asta) What are you thinking about? (La ce te gândeşti?) What do you think of the government? ( NOT: What are you thinking of the government?) (Ce părere ai despre guvern?) I m seeing Leslie tomorrow. (Mâine mă văd cu Leslie) I see what you mean. (NOT: I m seeing what you mean) (Înţeleg ce vrei să spui) urât?) Why are you smelling the meat? Is it bad? (De ce miroşi carnea? E stricată?) Does the meat smell bad? (NOT: Is the meat smelling bad?) (Carnea miroase I m just tasting the cake to see if it s OK. (Gust prăjitura să văd dacă e OK). 16

17 The cake tastes wonderful. (NOT: The cake is tasting..) (Prăjitura are un gust minunat) The scales broke when I was weighing myself this morning. (S-a rupt cântarul când mă cântăream de dimineaţă). I weighed 68 kilos three months ago and look at me now! (NOT: I was weighing 68 kilos three.) (Aveam/cântăream 68 de kg acum 3 luni şi uite cum arăt acum!) Jack is being noisy. ( Jack este gălăgios acum) Jack is noisy. ( Jack este gălăgios de felul lui) We are having an interesting conversation. ( Avem/ purtăm o discuţie interesantă) Deirdre has a Porsche. ( D are/ posedă o maşină P) I am depending on you. (Depind de tine) It depends what you mean. ( Depinde ce vrei să spui) Note also that many non-progressive verbs are occasionally used in progressive forms in order to emphasise the idea of change or development. (Observaţi de asemenea că multe verbe non-progresive sunt uneori folosite cu forme progresive pentru a accentua idea de schimbare) These days, more and more people are preferring to take early retirement. (Astăzi, din ce în ce mai mulţi oameni preferă pensionarea timpurie) The water s tasting better today. ( Apa are gust mai bun azi) 4. can see : Can is often used with see, hear, feel, taste, smell, understand and remember to give a kind of progressive meaning, especially in British English. ( can = a putea este adesea utilizat cu a vedea, a auzi, a simţi, a gusta, a mirosi, a înţelege, a-şi aminti pentru a da un fel de sens progresiv, mai ales în engleza britanică). I can see Sue coming down the road. ( O văd pe Sue venind pe stradă). Can you smell something burning? (Miroşi/ simţi că arde ceva?) 5. ing forms (forme în ing ): even verbs which are never used in progressive tenses have ing forms which can be used in other kinds of structure. (chiar şi verbele care nu sunt folosite niciodată la timpuri progresive au forme în ing care pot fi utlizate pentru alte structuri). Knowing her tastes, I bought her a large box of chocolates. (ştiindu-i gusturile, i-am cumpărat o cutie mare de ciocolată) I don t like to go to a country without knowing something of the language. ( Nu-mi place să merg într-o ţară fără să-i ştiu cât de cât limba) 17

18 # PRESENT TENSES: STORIES, COMMENTARIES, AND INSTRUCTIONS (formele de prezent: povestiri, comentarii, şi indicaţii) 1. stories (povestiri): present tenses are often used to tell stories, especially in an informal style. (timpurile prezente sunt adesea utilizate pentru a spune poveşti, mai ales într-un stil familiar). The simple present is used for the events the things that happen one after another. (Prezentul simplu este utilizat pentru evenimente lucrurile care se întâmplă unul după altul). The present progressive is used for background things that are already happening when the story starts, or that continue through the story. (Prezentul continuu este folosit pentru cadru lucrurile care se întâmplau deja când povestirea începe, sau care continuă pe parcursul povestirii). So I open the door, and I look out into the garden, and I see this man. He s wearing a pink skirt and a policeman s helmet. Good morning, he says. (Aşa că deschid uşa, şi mă uit în grădină, şi îl văd pe omul acesta. Poartă (avea pe el) o fustă roz şi o cască de poliţist. Bună dimineaţa, spune el.) There s this Scotsman, you see, and he s walking through the jungle when he meets a gorilla. And the gorilla s eating a snake sandwich. So the Scotsman goes up to the gorilla.(a fost o dată un Scoţian, ştii, şi el se plimba/ se plimbă prin junglă când vede o gorilă. Şi gorila mânca un sandwhich cu şarpe. Aşa că scoţianul se duce la gorilă.) The simple present is common in summaries of plays, stories, etc (prezentul simplu este obişnuit în rezumatele pieselor de teatru, povestiri, etc) In Act I, Hamlet meets the ghost of his father. The ghost tells him..(in Actul I, Hamlet întâlneşte fantoma tatălui său. Fantoma îi spune ) Chapter 2: Postman Pat goes to Scotland and makes friends with a sheep. (Capitolul 2: Poştaşul Pat se duce în Scoţia si se împrieteneşte cu o oaie) 2. commentaries (comentarii): in commentaries, the use of tenses is similar. (În comentarii, folosirea timpurilor este similară). The simple present is used for the quicker actions and events (which are finished before the sentences that describe them); the present progressive is used for longer actions and situations. (Prezentul simplu este utilizat pentru acţiunile şi evenimentele mai rapide [care sunt terminate înainte de propoziţiile care le descriu]; prezentul continuu este utilizat pentru acţiuni şi situaţii mai lungi). There are more simple and fewer progressive tenses in a football commentary, for instance, than in a commentary on a boat race. (Sunt mai multe forme simple şi mai puţine de continuu la un comentariu de fotbal, de exemplu, decat pentru un comentariu la o cursă de bărci). Smith passes to Devaney, Devaney to Barnes, Barnes to Lucas and Harris intercepts..harris to Simms, nice ball and Simms shoots! (Smith pasează lui Devaney, Devaney lui Barnes, Barnes lui Lucas şi Harris interceptează, frumoasă minge şi Simms trage!) Oxford are drawing slightly ahead of Cambridge now; they re rowing with a beautiful rhythm; Cambridge are looking a little disorganized..(cei de la Oxford o iau câte puţin înaintea celor de la Cambridge; vâslesc într-un ritm frumos; cei de la Cambridge par un pic dezorganizaţi). 18

19 3. instructions and demonstrations (instrucţiuni şi demonstraţii): we often use present tenses in a similar way to give instructions, demonstrations and directions (deseori folosim formele de prezent în mod similar pentru a da indicaţii, a face demonstraţii şi a arăta direcţia): Ok, let s go over it again. You wait outside the bank until the manager arrives. Then you radio Louie, who s waiting round the corner, and he drives round to the front entrance. You and Louie grab the manager. (Ok, să recapitulăm. Tu aştepţi în faţa băncii pâna soseşte managerul. Apoi tu îi transmiţi lui Louie, care între timp aşteaptă după colţ, şi el se îndreaptă cu maşina spre intrarea din faţă. Tu şi Louie îl înşfăcaţi pe manager ) First I put a lump of butter into a frying pan and light the gas; then while the butter s melting I break three eggs into a bowl, like this.( Întâi pun o bucată de unt întro tigaie şi aprind focul; apoi în timp ce se topeşte untul, sparg 3 ouă într-un castron, aşa.) How do I get to the station? You go straight on to the traffic lights, then you turn left (Cum ajung la staţie? Mergi drept înainte pâna la semafor, apoi o iei la stânga). Other uses of present continuous (alte utilizări ale prezentului continuu): complaints about bad habits (plângeri legate de obiceiurile rele ale cuiva) You are always complaining about my cooking! (Mereu te plângi de cum gătesc eu! other possible adverbs are (alte adverbe posibile sunt): constantly, continually, forever ( constant, continuu, mereu ) Other uses of present simple (alte utilizări pentru prezentul simplu): Making declarations (declaraţii): verbs describing opinions and feelings tend to be state verbs (verbele care descriu păreri şi sentimente tind să fie verbe de stare): I hope you ll come to my party. ( Sper că o să vii la petrecerea mea). I bet you don t know the answer! (Sunt sigur că/ pariez că nu ştii răspunsul!) Headlines (titluri din ziare): these are written in a telegram style, and references to the past are usually simplified to present simple (acestea sunt scrise în stil telegramă, iar referirile la trecut sunt de obicei simplificate prin prezentul simplu) Ship sinks in midnight collision. (Barca se scufundă/scufundată în coliziunea de la miezul nopţii). Practice 1. Choose the most appropriate words underlined: (Alegeţi cea mai bună variantă subliniată) a. I haven t decided yet about whether to buy a new car or a second-hand one. But I think about it/ I m thinking about it. b. All right, you try to fix the television!

I think you re being rather mean about this. Other Useful Skills There are other valuable skills which you can easily gain which can make all the difference to your application. Wordprocessing, typing and shorthand are things you are either taught or pick up on the job, but prior knowledge would show some initiative. Most journalists type in a very haphazard way but to a high speed. It s obviously better for your accuracy and the health of your hands if you can learn to do it properly. Confidence with wordprocessors is an advantage. Systems used by news organizations vary, but being faced with a VDU screen for the first time can be rather daunting and can frighten some people away from entering the industry. A few local evening classes in word-processing can build up your confidence and typing speed and look good on your CV. Shorthand training can be the bane of a journalist s life. Local newspaper trainees often have to travel to weekly classes in the evenings for hours of drilling. You should attain a speed of 100wpm but, like driving, some people pick it up quickly whereas for others it is an uphill struggle. It may help to find a night class beforehand to build up some speed even if you do not take an exam. Although many journalists use tape recorders, they tend to use them only as backup as machines can break down, especially when exposed to rainstorms. And, as stated earlier, most editors are impressed by candidates who have taken the traditional approach and who have grounded themselves in this basic skill. It cannot be stressed strongly enough how most candidates fare better when they can prove their dedication to the field of journalism through work experience and samples of their own writing. However, there are many who can disprove this point so do not be deterred from applying for jobs as employers who see potential in a recruit will be prepared to give them a chance. 22
