Conclusion Present Simple Tense


Present Simple Tense is formed in the way presented below. Notice that the same verb form is used for all the persons except for the third person singular. For it we have to add endings -es or -s. It is one of the most common mistakes made by learners of English who tend to forget about adding -es or -s in the third person singular. We don't use any contracted forms in affirmative sentences.The simple present tense is one of several forms of present tense in English. It is used to describe habits, unchanging situations, general truths, and fixed arrangements. The simple present tense is simple to form. Just use the base form of the verb: (I take, you take, we take, they take) The 3rd person singular takes an -s at the end. (he takes, she takes)


To express habits, general truths, repeated actions or unchanging situations, emotions and wishes:
I smoke (habit); I work in London (unchanging situation); London is a large city (general truth)
To give instructions or directions:
You walk for two hundred meters, then you turn left.
To express fixed arrangements, present or future:
Your exam starts at 09.00
In the case of negative sentences in Present Simple Tense we should remember that the third person singular takes DOES NOT and the other persons take DO NOT. We can use contracted forms for these: DOESN'T and DON'T. The full forms are mainly used in official documents, but in everyday speech only the contracted forms are used.
It is important to remember that Non-Continuous Verbs cannot be used in any continuous tenses. Also, certain non-continuous meanings for Mixed Verbs cannot be used in continuous tenses. Instead of using Present Continuous with these verbs, you must use Simple Present.
