Can you tell me a simple way of identifying/using tenses so that I can learn English the simple way? And please tell me whether these lines are correct or not.

However, there is no simple route to English verb tenses. Start by reading [url=http://leo.stcloudstate.edu/grammar/tenses.html ] THIS[/url].
There's two. Present and Past. The continuous and perfect are aspects.

That's absolutely untrue. Where did you learn that nonsense from?

English has two tense systems: an inflectional system contrasting preterite and present, and an independent analytic tense system called perfect tense, which is a kind of past tense.

Effectively, that means that English has just three tenses:

Present (or simple present): "I like beer".
Preterite (or simple past): "I hated English at school".
Perfect (either present or past) "I have been there" (present perfect) ~ "I had been there" (past perfect).

Note that the perfect is a past tense, despite having a form called "present perfect".

Despite what you may have been told, or may have seen on silly internet grammar web-sites or Wikipedia, there are no other tenses in English. The progressive form, as in I am eating", is an aspect, not a tense. And the so-called 'future tense', as in "I will go there" is not a tense at all; it's a modal verb (will) + infinitive construction used to talk about future time. English has no future tense.

As for 'active' and 'passive', these are kinds of ' voice', not tense.

No you are right there are only twelve sentences in english and the others are sub branches of these sentences which is driven from these 12 sentences.
