Dear friends ,

I will post some of the important tips  about the tenses of the verbs in simple and clear way.  At the end of every tense ,you can try yourself to answer here some exercises  related to every tense...

I hope these lessons can help you all to avoid some mistakes ...

   Let's start :)

                          The simple present tense

    Usage :

we use the simple present tense :

1-To talk about activities that we repeat regularly..routines and habits :

     - He drinks two cups of coffee every day.

      -I usually walk for an hour in the morning.

2-To talk about general truth and facts :

     - The moon goes round the earth.

     - Famous people suffer from alot of stress.

3-To talk about future official events or timetables which we can't change it:

   -The next school term starts in September .

   -We can't begin the meeting until he arrives.

So the most important rule is that we use the simple present for permanent states,facts ,routines ,give definitions and describe things .


In statements we add " s" or "es"  to the verb , in the third person singular"He -she -it ".


we use the following time adverbials with this tense :

always- usually- regularly-often-sometimes-rarely-seldom-once a( month )...

every(day) ,every ( morning).......etc.

  - He regularly swims and plays tennis .

  - They travel to London every summer.


1- Give three sentences using the simple present tense in negatives .

2- Give three sentences using the simple present in questions.
