Let's start :)
The simple present tense
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 .
