Grammar

Present Simple revision

Revision of the positive form:

a/ Please note that the third person singular (he, she, it) has a different ending to all the others. We add -s

b/ Verb + -es

I finish > he finishes, she finishes, it finishes

I go > he goes, she goes, it goes

I do > he does, she does, it does

c/ Verb ending in a consonant + y, we remove the -y and add +ies:

I fly > he flies, she flies, it flies

I study > he studies, she studies

d/ Certain verbs are also conjugated totally differently, for instance: “to do”, “to be”, “to have” and “can”:

Question and negative forms in the present simple / simple present. 

We have to use the auxiliary “do” to form the negative and interrogative forms.

Examples:

I love travelling.

I don’t like taking the bus. / I do not like taking the bus.

Do you like taking the tube? / Do you not like taking the tube? / Don’t you like taking the tube?

Let’s start by conjugating the verb “to do”

Please note that the third person singular (he, she, it) has a different ending to all the others.

Positive form

I do

You do

He does

She does

It does

We do

You do

They do

Negative form: long and short forms

I do not > I don’t

You do not > you don’t

He does not > he doesn’t

She does not > she doesn’t

It does not > it doesn’t

We do not > we don’t

You do not > you don’t

They do not > they don’t

Question forms

Positive question form – Long negative question form – Short negative question form

Do I…? – Do I not…? – Don’t I…?

Do you…? – Do you not…? – Don’t you…?

Does he…? – Does he not…? – Doesn’t he…?

Does she…? – Does she not…? – Doesn’t she…?

Does it…? – Does it not…? – Doesn’t he…?

Do we…? – Do we not…? – Don’t we…?

Do you…? – Do you not…? – Don’t you not…?

Do they…? – Do they not…? – Don’t they not…?

We use “do” or “does” to make a question int he simple present tense, except for questions with the verb “to be” and modal verbs like “can”.

“Do” + S + V + O + ?

Do + I/you/we/they + verb + object + ?

Do you speak English?

“Does” + S + V + O + ?

Does + he/she/it + verb + object + ?

Does he speak English?

Examples:

I speak English.

I don’t speak Portuguese.

Do you speak Spanish?

Don’t you speak Italian?

Do you not speak French?
