  • Hi there! My name is Ronnie.

  • and today I'm going to do a lesson.

  • It's a very, very basic, very simple, very easy lesson

  • for everyone to enjoy.

  • This is by request by the way, so thank you.

  • And today we're going to learn the verb "to have".

  • Now, the difficult thing about this verb is, is has to change when we use he and she.

  • Thank goodness..

  • the rest of them don't change when we use different pronouns.

  • I will conjugate the verb for you and you can just learn how to do this.

  • We say "I have"

  • "He" and "she"

  • These are the ones that are important, we have to use "has".

  • Because these are singular people.

  • "I", "he", " she." Then we have

  • "They" and the last one is "we".

  • Both "they" and "we" are two people; at least two people.

  • We can say, "they have"

  • and "we have"

  • ok? so the very.. difficult and most important ones to remember here

  • are if it's a singular person, "he" or "she", we need to change the verb to "has".

  • Fine!

  • The next thing is the negative form of these verbs.

  • In the negative, we have to use the word in English "don't".

  • So, we're going to say:

  • "I don't have"

  • For example, "I don't have a mobile"

  • "I don't have a television"

  • "They", we can use the same word, "don't have".

  • So we can say: "they don't have any hamburgers"

  • And again we because we use have we can say "We don't have".

  • For this one unfortunately I can't say "He don't has".

  • That would be too easy for you guys. We actually have to change this word

  • And we actually have to - they're coming for me "oh no"! Help

  • Okay

  • I escaped

  • He and she with has... We have to change this verb to doesn't

  • So I can say

  • she

  • doesn't

  • have

  • and she

  • doesn't

  • have

  • so

  • when we use the negative form, we use the verb have for all of them. The one that changes is don't, doesn't, and don't.

  • This is the very - oh no they're coming for me again-

  • This is. Nope they're gone. Nope they're here.

  • "He doesn't have"

  • "She doesn't have"

  • "I don't have" "They don't have" "We don't have"

  • I hope that makes it easier for you

  • When you're dealing with have and has

  • The other part of this word is the past

  • Does anyone know the past of have?

  • It is

  • had... So

  • This is very easy and you're lucky for this one

  • When we use "had," we don't have to change it with the different pronouns

  • So we can say I had, he and she had, they had, and we had

  • they had, and we had

  • They had a fire

  • That's why the sirens are there

  • Basic use of verbs: to have, to had

  • When we change the past of had into the negative is where it becomes a little difficult

  • Back in old old school english

  • and I think a lot of the times in Britain and in British english

  • You can say

  • I

  • had

  • not

  • She had not

  • They had not. We had not.

  • But this is very unnatural for us

  • us being people from Canada and people from America

  • And modern day english

  • We just don't use "I had not." It's very Shakespearean. If you're into Shakespeare you'd know this

  • I had to not eat in that...which is kinda weird. So

  • When we use had

  • We have to look at this verb again

  • Who knows what the negative and the past really of doesn't is?

  • The answer is didn't.

  • So for this one we're going to say I

  • didn't

  • or did not

  • have

  • For all of these, we do not need to change it.

  • He and she

  • didn't have

  • and they and we

  • also

  • we use

  • didn't

  • So the more you study English the more you are going to learn there are things that are very difficult and hard to remember

  • But! There's going to be some tricks I can teach you to help you remember those

  • I hope that helped you

  • and everyone else I'll see you again soon!!! Bye

  • Basic use of verbs
