Hi guys! I'm back. It's so good to see you again.
And today, we'll be starting with the tenses.
Many English learners worry too much about tenses.
If you stopped 100 native English speakers in the street and asked them about tenses,
A few of them might give you a good answer, if you were lucky.
The other 99 would know little about structure, voice or mood.
But they can all speak fluent English and communicate effectively.
Of course, I will help to know about tenses.
But don't become obsessed with them.
Be like those native speakers! Speak naturally!
Alright! Back to the lesson. In my videos, we will learn 12 basic tenses.
In each lesson we look at two aspects of the tense: STRUCTURE and USAGE
In each lesson we look at two aspects of the tense: STRUCTURE and USAGE
Today, we're going to talk about the Present Simple Tense.
Firstly, let's see how we make the Present simple tense with the Verb "to be"
For Affirmatives,
For Negatives, here are the rules:
For Interrogatives or questions,
we place the verb "to be" before the subject.
Now! Let's move to see how we make the Present simple tense with regular verbs.
In my video, when you see the letter V ( verb) in the structure, that means "bare infinitive"
In an affirmative sentences,
If the subject is I or We You They, we simply use the infinitive form of the verb.
In the present simple 3rd person singular (She, He, It)
we add -S or -ES to the base form of the verb.
If the verb ends in -SS, -SH, -CH, -X or -O
add -ES to the base form.
For verbs ending in a -y preceded by a consonant,
change the letter -y to -i and add -es
Be careful !
If the Verb ends in a -y preceded by a vowel, the normal rule applies.
We add --s to the base form.
In the Present Simple tense,
Negative forms are made using the auxiliary verb.
Negatives in the simple present are formed
by adding DO NOT or DON'T, DOES NOT or DOESN'T
before the base form of the verb.
Questions are also created using the auxiliary, too.
This time, the auxiliary is placed before the subject.
We use the present simple tense when
We talk about facts or general truth
Pay attention to the following frequency time expressions commonly used for the Present Simple tense.
This has been a review about the usage and formation of the Present simple tense in English grammar.
It is highly used to refer to general facts, states and habits that are constantly true in the present.
Reviewing the rules is not enough to make you use it properly.
The more you pick it up in your reading, and more importantly use it for writing, the better you will use it.
I hope you enjoy the lesson.
