Hi everyone, welcome back to Aze IT Studio post. Today i am going to tell you about Simple Present Tense 

Here we go


Before that, let me tell you what tenses is ?

Grammar tenses refers to the state of verb. The state of verb which explains the time of the action. There are three major tenses in English. These include past, present, and future. Each of these tenses can explain an event that occurred in the past, an event that occurs in the present, or an event that will occur in the future.

Today i am going to share one of it which is simple present tense.

According to EF.com, simple present tense is one of several forms of present tense in English. It is used to describe habits, unchanging situations, general truths, and fixed arrangements. The simple present tense is simple to form. Just use the base form of the verb: (I take, you take, we take, they take) The 3rd person singular takes an -s at the end. (he takes, she takes)

Here is the Formula :

S + Auxiliary  + main Verb

e.g : I do like tea

Exceptions :
  • For positive sentences, we do not normally use the auxiliary.
  • For the 3rd person singular (he, she, it), we add s to the main verb or es to the auxiliary.
  • For the verb to be, we do not use an auxiliary, even for questions and negatives.
Look at these examples with the main verb like :

Look at these examples with the main verb be. Notice that there is no auxiliary:

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

Okay, I think that's all for today's post. See you on the next post.
