Tense, aspect, voice.
According to conventional modern linguistics, there are only two tenses in English, the present and the past. Other "tenses" are verb forms created with the help of auxiliaries and modals. As well as being a rather artificial construct, this can be very confusing for students.

Thus, for the purpose of clarity, it is more useful to use the historic classification of tenses in English, as defined by - among others – the first grammarian of English, Samuel Johnson. Johnson listed six English tenses, each of them with a simple and a progressive or continuous aspect.
