Present Simple Part II

Affirmative Negative Interrogative

I eat I don’t eat Do I eat?


You eat You don’t eat Do you eat?
He eats He doesn’t eat Does he eat?
She eats She doesn’t eat Does she eat?
It eats It doesn’t eat Does it eat?
We eat We don’t eat Do we eat?
You eat You don’t eat Do you eat?
They eat They don’t eat Do they eat?

USE

1. We use present simple for:

 Regular habits and daily routines;


 Facts, things in general;
 Permanent or last-lasting situations;
 Timetable or schedules.

2. It is used with adverbs like:

Always Sometimes Everyday

Often Rarely ….

Usually Never

FORM

1. To form the present simple we add –s to the infinitive of the verb in the 3rd
person singular (he, she, it):

e.g.: I live

He / She/ It lives

27
2. But when the verb ends in:

a) –o, -ss-, -sh,- ch we add –es.

e.g.: I go  he/she/it goes

I kiss  he/she/it kisses

I wash  he/she/it washes

I watch  he/she/it watches

b) a consonant followed by -y, the y changes into –ie and we add –s:

study  studies

c) a vowel followed by –y, we add – s:

e.g: I play  he/she/ it plays

3. To form the negative and interrogative we need the auxiliary verb to do in the
present simple. This means we have to add – es in the 3rd person singular (he, she
it) while the main verb will be used in the infinitive:

e.g: do you like? you don’t like

does he like? She doesn’t like?

A. Complete the sentences choosing the correct form of the verb in brackets

1. David ___________________ table tennis (play/plays)
