- In English, the present simple tense is very easy: you have to use the bare infinitive of the verb EXCEPT FOR the 3rd person SINGULAR. Look at the examples:
- Verb to read: I read a book.
- Verb to buy: You buy food for the pet.
- Verb to listen: The pupils listen to the teacher in the classroom.
- Verb to jump: We jump very high.
- Verb to kiss: I kiss your baby.
- Verb to fix: You fix the taps of the house.
- But with the 3rd person singular, we add -s or -es.
- Verb to read: John always reads books on Tuesdays.
- Verb to comb: The girl combs her hair in front of the mirror.
- Verb to brush: Manuel brushes his teeth three times a day.
- Verb to watch: The baby watches the movements of the eyes.
- Verb to unbox: She unboxes the presents on Christmas day.
