English Grammar

3/ Questions in the negative form in the present simple / simple present.

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


I eat cheese.

I don’t eat cheese. / I do not eat cheese.

Do you eat cheese? / Do you not eat cheese? / Don’t you eat cheese?

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 form

Positive question forms:

Do I…?

Do you…?

Does he…?

Does she…?

Does it…?

Do we…?

Do you…?

Do they…?

Negative question forms: long and short forms

Do I not…?

Do you not…?

Don’t I…?

Don’t you…?

Doesn’t he…?

Doesn’t she…?

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 + ?

Lesson 12 Recap with Julia ​​​

Hey guys! Welcome back!

Let’s do the recap now of lesson 11!

This lesson contains lots of everyday vocabulary and some interesting grammar points. In this video we’re going to do as usual: a combination of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. So let’s start off with everyday vocabulary!

Pronounce after me! Repeat after me!

We have the word: “garage“.

  • a garage
  • to walk
  • to run
  • to exercise
  • to do exercise

Now let’s look at plurals!

Do you remember? We’ve seen this quite a few times! So I’d like to review that with you because there’s yet another rule here that appears! We’ve seen the plural of nouns together.

We saw the regular one but we just add an “S”:

a cat – cats

Sometimes we have to add “ES”:

a wish – wishes

And in other cases we have a very irregular plural:

man – men

In today’s dialogue we have another example of irregular plural:

a wife – wives

We remove the “F” and replace it by a “V”. And then we add an “S” at the end.

a wife – wives

So not only does the spelling change but the pronunciation does too. Be careful there.

a wife – wives

We have long vowels there. Enunciate to make it easier. Repeat after me: a wife – wives.

Finally I would like to review the question words with you.

The more you progress, the more you’ll be asking questions. So let’s review those question words! Repeat after me!

who, how, why, where, when

That’s it for today! Thanks for watching this video!

I’ll see you in our next lesson together!

Bye bye!
