Present, Past and Future Tenses
Verbs are quite simple in Indonesian. There are no endings to add to verbs like in other languages. You simply add a certain word depending on which tense you want to use.
1. present, continuous, etc.
2. past, present perfect, etc.

Saya sedang merokok – I am smoking
Saya sudah merokok – I smoked, I have smoked, I had smoked, I have been smoking, I had been smoking
Saya akan merokok – I will smoke, I will be smoking, I will have smoked
The subject, the verb, the nouns, the adjectives, and the adverbs do not change their forms.
