Transcript of Present simple
- general truths or facts, permanent
situations Present simple is used to express: - habitual, repetitive actions (routines)
I go to school
every day. Form: Positive statements:
I come from Spain.
He comes from Spain.
I don't come from Spain.
He doesn't come from Spain.
Do you come from Spain?
Does he come from Spain? Pay attention! Verbs ending in ss, s, ch, sh, x, o add es instead of s alone, to form the third person singular:
I teach - he teaches
I go - he goes
When y follows a consonant we change the y into i and add es:
I copy - he copies,
but verbs ending in y following a vowel obey the usual rule:
I play - he plays. Present simple is often used with adverbs
or adverb phrases such as:
I never go to the cinema.
She sometimes visits me at home.
We usually drink tea.
He is often tired in the morning.
I always travel by bus.
I see her once/ twice a week.
