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

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


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:
