Simple Present Tense Definition How do we make the Simple Present Tense? Three Important Exceptions 1. For positive sentences, we do not normally use the auxiliary.
2. For the 3rd person singular (he, she, it), we add s to the main verb or es to the auxiliary.
3. For the verb to be, we do not use an auxiliary, even for questions and negatives. subject+auxiliary verb+main verb
do base When do we use The Simple Present Tense? We use the simple present tense when:

* the action is general
* the action happens all the time, or habitually, in the past, present and future
* the action is not only happening now
* the statement is always true Look at these examples:

* I live in New York.
* The Moon goes round the Earth.
* John drives a taxi.
* He does not drive a bus.
* We meet every Thursday.
* We do not work at night.
* Do you play football? Note that with the verb to be, we can also use the simple present tense for situations that are not general. We can use the simple present tense to talk about now. Reminder For Example the situation is now: Am I right?
Tara is not at home.
You are happy. For example the situation is general I am not fat.
Why are you so beautiful?
