Hi Mariel. Good question. To know which tense to use think about the context and the question. ***In academic writing the rule is to use present tense as much as possible. This is because the present tense makes information currently relevant and interesting.
In the speaking section, listen carefully for the tenses used in the questions; make sure to reflect the same tense in your answers.
