Learn something about English*

Present Simple [★]

● This simple, also called the indicative tense is the simplest of English. Is often used to talk about facts that are habits or customs.

●It forms the basis of the verb form of the infinitive. The infinitive consists of two particles and the base form to the verb, so, for example, to eat is an infinitive which means to eat.

●The only difficulty you write, as usual, in the 3rd person singular, in fact, this 3rd person is special when conjugate verbs. As a general rule is added to s, although we will see that there are some exceptions.

► Use of this simple
●This tense is used to express facts or general truths.

The Sun warms the atmosphere. -> The sun heats the armósfera

●We also use the present simple to talk about habits in this case, prayer frequency expressions usually appear as usually or always.

We usually play tennis. -> We play tennis occasionally.
You always study. -> You estudiais forever.

●Also use it to express horarior or programs (such as a theater performance program).

The train leaves in an hour. -> The train arrives in an hour.

► Spelling rules for the 3rd person singular

●As a rule, the verb form of the 3rd person singular is added to s, however, there are a few rules for a series of verbal forms that are special:

1 .- When the verb already ends in s, or a similar sound as sh, ch or x:
watch -> watches (mirar) dash -> dash (Arrojar)

2 .- When the verb ends in or is also added:
go -> goes (ir) do -> does (hacer)

3 .- When the verb ends in y, since it precedes a consonant, we have to change the y to i to add is below:
fly -> flies (volar) study -> studies (estudiar)

**rules of the verb HAVE

Have and have comes from the verb to have, which means having Have it for the following people: I, YOU, WE, YOU, THEY You is for the rest, HE, SHE, IT

☆These are the same spelling rules that apply to form the plural. They are also used to form other tenses.
