2/ Grammar Practice
Positive form in the present simple / simple present.
We have to add an -s to the third person singular: he/she/it in the present simple
I eat cheese. > He eats cheese.
Please note that the third person singular (he, she, it) has a different ending to all the others. We add -s
Try to conjugate the following verbs:
to speak, to work, to travel…
Be careful as some verbs change spelling slightly with the third person singular (he/she/it):
a/ 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
b/ 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
Certain verbs are also conjugated totally differently, for instance: “to do”, “to be”, “to have” and “can”:
You are -you’re
He is – he’s
She is – she’s
It is – it’s
We are – we’re
You are – you’re
They are – they’re
I have – I’ve
You have – you’ve
We have – we’ve
You have – you’ve
