b/ Verb + -es

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 in the positive form of present simple.

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

Do we…? – Do we not…? – Don’t we…?

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 + ?

Lesson 13 recap with Julia ​​​​

Hi guys! Welcome back!

Let’s do the recap now together of  the positive form of present simple in lesson 13

!

Let’s start off with the vocabulary related to language learning and food:

  • to learn
  • to want
  • to want to learn
  • how to speak
  • to like
  • food
  • hungry
  • English food

Now let’s look at the pronunciation of the “S”!

I know that we’ve done of this or something similar to this together before. We looked at the pronunciation of the “S”, at the pronunciation of the ending of the plural forms. Do you remember that? We saw that the “S” could be pronounced in three different ways:

  • /s/
  • /z/
  • /iz/

The same here applies to the “S” ending of the third person singular. Today we’re seeing the present simple, the simple present. In the third person singular, there is an “S” at the end. Let’s look at examples of verbs in the third person singular of present simple.

/s/

eats, wants, speaks, takes

/z/

shows, travels, runs, answers

/iz/

finishes, watches, washes

Let’s look at vocabulary that are very useful to explain what you’re doing in class discussing the dialogue and the grammar.

Let’s look at that vocabulary!

I’m going to pronounce it. So please repeat after me!

  • a phrase
  • a sentence
  • singular
  • plural
  • grammar
  • vocabulary
  • a verb
  • a noun
  • an adverb
  • an adjective

Here is a difficult word so please pay attention here to the pronunciation.

It contains a silent letter: answer

questions and answers

Remember? We saw the silent “W”.
