Present simple Hello in this video we're going to show you how to create and use the present simple tense the most common verb tense in English You have to remember that in each verb tense. We must know three things number one when we use this verb tense We use present simple to say repeated actions like habits or routines For example, I wake up at 8 a.m every day We can use present simple to say general truths and permanent situations For example, the sky is blue. I am a boy I Don't speak German Number 2 how we create a sentence in present simple There are three groups One if we want to use the verb to be then we say I am You are He Is She Is It is You are They are We are and in negatives, I am not You are not He is not She is not It is not You are not They are not We are not and in questions am I? Are you? Is he? Is she? Is it? Are you are they are? we Remember that when we use the verb to be we always use the verb to be to do the negative sentences In questions, we just put the verb to be at the beginning of the sentence - if we want to use the verb have got then we say I have got You have got He has got She has got it has got You have got They have got we have got Four negatives. I Haven't got you haven't got he hasn't got she hasn't got You haven't got they haven't got We haven't got and four questions. Have I got? Have you got Has he got Has she got Has it got Have you got Have they got Have we got in The third group there are all the verbs that are not the verb to be or have got please remember these three different groups because it is very important when you do the negatives or interrogative sentences let's see how we create the sentences in present simple with verbs that are not the verb to be or the verb have got Let's start with the positive sentences Let's use the verb play We say I play You play But in he she it we say plays So the subjects he she it make the verb and in s plural subjects We you and they play as you see the different ones Are he she it? Where the verb ends in S Let's see the negative sentences to create a negative sentence we need a word called the auxilary Look at the examples. I don't play We add don't before the verb You don't play But in he she it we say he doesn't play without the S she doesn't play without the S and It doesn't play without the S We don't play you don't play they don't play as You see again that the different ones are he she it Where we put doesn't before the verb and leave the verb without the S Now take a look at the questions To create a question. We need an auxilary again we say Do I play? Do you play? But in he she it we say Does he play without the S? Do we play? Do you play? Do they play? Again, the different ones are he she it Where we put does? instead of do Watch the W a s v lessons for more information on how to create questions And three which are the typical words from this verb temps as We use the present simple to tell actions that are repeated The typical words of the present simple are the words that tell us an action is repeated like always Sometimes usually Normally Often not often Hardly ever Never All these words are called adverbs of frequency Because they tell us how frequently an action is repeated Please watch the adverbs of frequency video other words that tell us a frequency are every day on Mondays or any other day on The weekends or any word of time ending in S means that the action is repeated at that time
